Olympus HLD-9 overview

  • 1Description

Offering a more comfortable grip along with extended battery life, the HLD-9 Power Battery Grip is dedicated to the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II mirrorless camera. Featuring a well-matched physical design, this battery grip duplicates the control set of the camera body for more intuitive settings adjustment when shooting in the vertical orientation, and includes a secondary front dial, shutter button, rear dial, two function buttons, a vertical shooting lock, an OK button, and an arrow pad. The grip also matches the durable construction of the camera body, and is dust, splash, and freezeproof to support shooting in trying environmental conditions. Beyond a more ergonomic and intuitive means for handling the camera, this grip also supports the use of an additional BLH-1 lithium-ion battery to effectively double the battery life while shooting. Alternatively, an AC-5 AC Adapter can also be paired with the battery grip for virtually indefinite power via 100-240 VAC.

Olympus HLD-9 reviews

HLD-9 Power Battery Grip is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same design as EM1 battery Grip but much heavier The battery grip really adds a lot of weight to the camera; more than the EM1 grip. So if your purpose in buying the Mark II was less weight in compare to Canon or Nikon than you are defeating your purpose with the grip. The camera really feels like a full professional DLSR camera with the grip. The grip has all the camera features in vertical mode on the grip; a good thing. I always wished that the grip held all the batteries but it doesn't. So you have to take the grip off to get to the battery in the camera. I'm sure this has to do with maintaining the cameras water proofing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grip does exactly what is intended for This grip does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It adds an additional grip to be used in portrait mode type shooting. It extends the number of shots you can take at one time by allowing one additional battery to be stored in the grip. It adds weight and size to the overall camera, which feels pretty balanced when using the the 300mm pro lens or the 40-150 pro lens. I shot with this in the rain and the grip is sealed from the rain. It has two additional function buttons that are customizable. The best thing about this grip is the fact that it utilizes the grip battery first. When the grip battery dies, the camera switches to the main battery in the body. You can then place another battery in the grip without turning the camera off. A nice feature when shooting events/weddings

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding build quality I have power battery grips for both my original E-M1 and the new E-M1 Mark II. The build quality for the HLD-9 feels significantly more solid and attaches more firmly to the Mark II Than the HLD-7 did to the E-M1 plus the controls are more comprehensive. A nice upgrade at a similar price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must addition for your E-M1 MK II This grip is designed for the E-M1 MK II, and fits like a glove. Easy to install and remove. Remove the rubber cover on the bottom of the camera and screw it on. Having two batteries in your camera is great. The ergonomics are excellent; easier to hold the camera with it on, and of course, shooting vertical is much easier. Adds weight to the camera combo, but it offset by the versatility and more flexible use. I shoot with twin E-M1 MK II's. Thought I would only use it on one camera, but I'll now probably buy a second one for the other camera. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels like a Full SLR Found the grip to bring the camera weight and feel like a fully provisioned Canon 7D. Works just like the other grips do. No problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Overall an excellent quality grip. My only complaint is that the dials on the grip are far easier to bump while carrying the camera than grips for other cameras I've owned. It does have a lock, but when I'm shooting photos at an event I want the camera over my shoulder ready to go to quickly catch spontaneous moments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Grip! Very comfortable! Fits my hands like a glove! Only complaint is that it has to be removed to get at second battery in the camera. However, easy built in screw/lock makes it easy to get on and off camera!
