Vello BG-P2 overview

  • 1Description

Shoot for longer and improve the ergonomics of your Panasonic GH5 or GH5S with this Battery Grip from Vello. This accessory can hold a DMW-BLF19 battery while allowing you to use a second cell inside the camera, effectively doubling your shooting time. An aptly-placed shutter release button and a rubberized body help improve functionality when shooting in portrait mode, while dual command dials and white balance, ISO, and exposure compensation buttons give you full control over your exposure. On the back side, you can also find an AF/AE lock and joystick/Fn controls which perform the same function as their on-camera equivalents.

For installation, remove the contact caps from both your camera and the grip. Align the mounting screw and pin, then rotate the large locking wheel until the grip is firmly attached. Note that the accessory has an on/off switch, which can be used to shut off the grip's controls while still providing you with the extra power from the battery. Finally, a lug on the side can be used to attach an optional wrist strap, and a 1/4"-20 socket at the bottom allows you to work with a tripod or monopod.

Body Design
  • Designed for the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 and DC-GH5S mirrorless cameras

    Vello BG-P2 reviews

    Battery Grip for Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 and DC-GH5S is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for my needs Hi there, I got this one for occasional filming in my church using tripod. I film in 4k 100Mbps for about 65-80 min. And this grip works well for my needs. I mentioned that battery in a grip drains faster than the one in a camera body. But I only have one Panasonic battery and the other one is aftermarket, that could be a reason. I didn't try controls so could not comment anything about it. Vello Battery Grip is light without a battery, and might feel a little cheap but for the price you can't go wrong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality and Value! I have both the Official GH5 Battery Grip & Vello - and they are nearly identical besides the price tag! Now I can have a grip on both of my GH5 cameras and have extended recording while doing videos! Plus if shooting in portrait mode, all the standard controls are still at my fingertips. I highly reco this due to the value, wish this was out when I purchased my first grip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with this battery grip Love this thing and saved a ton of money too. I did a test during a video shoot and the extra battery worked like a charm. During my shoot that day I saw that the battery was running down in the body of the camera so I just let it run and it turned over automatically to the grip battery without turning off or missing a beat during taping. This is a real life saver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Accessory for the GH5 As a fan of Panasonic Micro 4/3 cameras, especially the GH4 - long lasting battery life was always the foundation of why it was my go-to camera for any situation. While I love the upgrades on my GH5, battery life left a lot to be desired. Not only does the Vello double the battery life, the portrait mode buttons, design and texture really transforms the GH5 into a premium looking camera. I feel more confident doing long takes or extended interview shoots with the Vello.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I wanted a grip for my Gh5 for my vacation where I planned to shoot mostly photos. I didn't want to spend almost $400 on a grip that would spend most of the year in the closet. I can find no issues with it. All buttons work, fit and finish is very good. Get one!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice grip for the price This grip is very nice, especially for the price. The buttons, including the mini joystick are plastic, but I only employ the battery grip for the extra juice and ergonomics, so it doesn't bother me. The grippy, textured surface feels exactly like the GH5's does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bargain This is a real bargain! Fits perfectally on the Lumix GH5 and all the functions operate as they should.
