Vello BG-S4 Overview

The Vello BG-S4 Battery Grip is designed specifically for the Sony Alpha a6300 and a6400 camera. The grip holds one or two NP-FW50 batteries which effectively doubles your shooting time when both batteries are installed. It works through the use of a dedicated battery adapter and the design of the grip provides a comfortable way to hold and shoot your camera in the vertical position. The BG-S4 also has a vertical-position shutter-release button for portrait orientation shooting which works through the use of an included Multi-Terminal cable. It even has an on/off switch that deactivates the shutter release when it is not needed, preventing accidentally release when performing activities such as shooting video.

The BG-S4 is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling. The battery grip screws into the camera's tripod mount, and it has another tripod mount on its bottom for attaching to a camera support. A metal mount allows you to attach a camera strap to the BG-S4 for convenient carrying.

While designed to match the grip and design of the a6300 and a6400, the BG-S4 is functionally compatible with the a6500 with slightly different ergonomics due to the a6500's larger grip.
Holds up to two NP-FW50 batteries, doubling the battery life for the Sony a6300 and a6400.
Provides comfortable and secure handling when shooting in the vertical position, including a secondary shutter release button.
Features anti-slip rubber gripping and a securely locking battery chamber door.

Will the camera recognize the grip as working if ...

Will the camera recognize the grip as working if the cable is not used? For example, if doing a timelapse and the port is already in use by the timelapse devise, will the camera recognize there are two batteries while connected?
Asked by: Paige
The power connection is through the "dummy" battery, which fits into the camera's battery compartment, with provides the electrical connection. The cable is only required for the shutter release located on the grip. I often use the grip without the cable, and everything works normally with the shutter release on the camera.
