Vello BG-S5 overview

  • 1Description

The Vello BG-S5 Battery Grip is designed specifically for the Sony Alpha a6500 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-S5 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 can turn off both the grip and camera for simplified operation.

The BG-S5 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-S5 for convenient carrying.

Designed to match the body design of the a6500 for improved ergonomics and control.
Holds up to two NP-FW50 batteries, doubling the battery life for the Sony a6500.
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.

    Vello BG-S5 reviews

    BG-S5 Battery Grip for Sony Alpha a6500 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Than Nothing :-) Easy to configure. Good feel. Seems to be solidly built. My one question on concern involves the (shockingly) short battery life. I don't think I'm getting the performance of two batteries via the use of this battery grip. I shot yesterday and wore out the "batteries" after about 175 shots, which is well below what I expected out of one battery. At any rate, it's better than nothing and provides the same feel that I am accustomed via my other camera and battery grips, so I'm somewhat satisfied. Something's amiss though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Buy This was a very useful purchase, Seeing that the battery life of the Sony a6500 doesn't have a very long lifespan. Now it is doubled. The quality of the grip is fantastic as well; grips well. Only thing I can see being troublesome is the wire that has to connect externally from the grip to the camera. Either than that I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels good and works fine I have a similar battery pod on my D60 with a leather fist grip. It is my walking around configuration. The combination with the A56500 works even better. The balance with the 18-100 on the camera is lighter in all respects. From comments about battery life on the 6500 it seems the two battery solution is a must.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grip for the A6500 The Vello BG-S5 Battery Grip is just what I was looking to make my A6500 work great with my longer telephoto lenses. The balance is much better and the grip is much more comfortable to hold. So far I have not noticed any battery power leakage. I would recommend it highly if you need more grip and battery power.
