Dedicated to the Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format mirrorless camera, the VG-GFX1 Vertical Battery Grip benefits shooting in the vertical orientation and can also be used to effectively double your battery life. The grip accepts one additional NP-T125 rechargeable lithium-ion battery for extended shooting times, and it is compatible with the optional AC-15V AC Adapter for charging the battery within the grip. In terms of its physical design, the extended shape incorporates a secondary shutter release button as well as additional function buttons and control dials to mimic the camera's own layout for intuitive handling.

Fujifilm VG-GFX1 reviews

VG-GFX1 Vertical Battery Grip is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you need it... You can find my reviews on many other GF series products and you will see that I am in love with the camera system. My goal was ultimate image quality for the types of photography I use the system for and Fujifilm has delivered in truly epic fashion. But the 5 star ratings for the camera body and the (incredible, amazing, unbelievable) lenses hide some of my annoyances with the system as a whole. Turns out the Vertical Battery Grip (VBG) perfectly highlights the two things that bug me about the GF system. - Overpriced. I gave in and bought this after a price drop and it is still very expensive. My history with brand name grips is they make the resale value of a new car you drive off the lot look good. - Questionable ergonomics. I own the GFX (obviously) and I also own an X100F and while I understand why some of the romantics wax eloquent about the use of dials on Fuji cams - as an old guy I remember seeing and embracing the future when I bought my F5. This doesn't help the GFX in the erg department. To be fair - the grip is good in that it actually improves the overall handling of the camera - but it of course doesn't have dials. So you either have to reprogram the camera to take advantage of the dial functions using the wheels (at which point you have to wonder why the camera has the dials in the first place) or you have to ignore the well placed controls on the grip and instead fumble awkwardly with your now extremely heavy camera as you try to find the dials on the side of the camera (since it is now in a portrait layout). There are also a few positives. - I have a Syrp that I use for extended timelapses and this obviously helps a lot with extending shooting times. A LOT. - For all of the ergonomic flaws of the GF system - the side loading battery idea is an ergonomic home run on the camera and on the grip. - The build quality is top notch which is true of everything I have touched so far from Fuji. Of course with no competition - if you need a grip you will buy this regardless of the rating and the price. I just can't imagine ever being thrilled with it like I am with the camera and those incredible lenses.
