    Sony GP-X1EM reviews

    GP-X1EM Grip Extension is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Feel / Poor Execution Okay, so first let me say that the grip feel is superb. I absolutely LOVE the way this grip makes the camera feel without adding unnecessary bulk. The form factor is just sublime. Truly. If you're the type of shooter that is simply going to put a strap on it and dangle from your neck you're going to LOVE this grip. Since the new A9 batteries are 2x the capacity of the A7 series its not like you're swapping batteries all day like before. Now for the downsides... First, the grip covers the battery plate. Therefore you need to completely remove the grip first before swapping out batteries. While the grip is SUPER EASY to unscrew, it's still not the most elegant solution. Second, the screw to attach the grip to the camera utilizes the same female tripod mount. So you guessed it... If you want to throw the camera on a tripod / monopod, or like me you use the PeakDesign system to attach your camera to your bag, belt, etc. then you're a$$ed out. So like I said, if you tend to shoot off of a conventional camera strap then you're gonna love this thing. However, if you go between a tripod or use a PeakDesign clip-in system then this is utterly useless. For me, the only reason I would even need a grip attachment is for a long day of shooting to make it more natural and comfortable. But this is also the very situation when I'm using my PeakDesign system to clip my camera off and on, and potentially combine with tripod shooting. So essentially when I need this grip the most, its the least practical. Just food for thought guys...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it - not good for use with tripods or tripod mount stra I am a single-camera shooter. And I LOOVE this grip. The battery grip only added one extra batter, so it wasn't worth $350 to me. But this is totally worth the money for the comfort on my pinky and my wrist honestly.� In order to change the battery, you just need to twist the screw, a quarter turn, then swing it out and open the battery compartment. It is NOT good for people who want to use a tripod a lot, or those with straps that screw into the tripod mount (money makers/black rapid slings). Perfect for me though!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed First off, I dont get all the complaints about this little thing. It is the perfect solution to a well known problem. It gives you just enough added real estate for comfort without needing the added bulk of a battery grip and additional battery. It is incredibly well made, still overpriced in my opinion but this solution is a better one than any other company offers. Coming from crop body sensors the only solution to ergonomics would be a battery grip which i didnt really want. Lastly, blocking the battery door is (to me) a weird complaint. Changing the battery isnt something that you do frequently (with the new Z batteries) and you dont NEED to take it all the way off to change it, you can unscrew it a bit, spin to the side and bingo...take the battery out. The only downsides to this are: 1.) Price and 2.) Blocking of tripod mount. I usually leave a plate on the bottom of my camera for a tripod, so admittedly that portion is a bit of a bummer. Bit also, if i am being realistic my camera spends more time in my hands then on my tripod so really not that big of a loss....and again, its a screw, not super complex to remove.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it Sony A9 - you really need this or the battery grip With the new batteries I just didn't want the weight / size of the grip Yeh if you need a tripod mount often - its not practical - wish they had made it so you could sill get to the tripod mount or a mount hole in the grip - next gen probably

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blocks the battery door and tripod mount. The idea behind this is good but the execution is poor. Put this on and you'll constantly be screwing and unscrewing for battery changes, which over time would strip your tripod mount.
    Date published: 2017-05-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great plus have tripod attachment on it Figured out a way to hook up peak design plate to it! Still cheaper than battery grip and since battery lasts so much longer now, grip isn't as worth it to have. Go to HD and get longer screw with lock washer, then take out Sony screw and peak design screw. If you get the right thread and length, it should all work with base of camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved grip of the A7R II It's worth every dollar to get an improved and more comfortable grip of my A7R II mounted with a lens of the FE 24-105MM. I feel more confident to shoot under any circumstances. Highly recommended. BTW, I would like to make a suggestion to Sony that this extra grip should merge it into the body as a whole for upcoming model.
    Date published: 2018-06-08
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well built but expensive Although I like the grip built quality and the camera handling with the grip extension on, the main issue in my opinion is that you cannot use the tripod mount anymore, or attach a strap anchor on the bottom. It's also a bit expensive.
