Vello BG-P2 Overview

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.

Does anyone know if you can set it up to burn the grip battery first so that you can run off the internal battery while you hot swap out the grip battery? I ask because I know that you can do this with the VERY expensive Panasonic version and I was hoping to save the money by getting the this one. Thanks

question

Is Vello going to make a battery grip for the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K? I hope they will.
Asked by: Ellory
Since the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is a video camera, we consider it very unlikely that anyone will make a grip for it. A grip can be valuable for a still camera, allowing longer battery life and the convenience of a vertical grip. On the other hand, a video camera needs to be lighter/smaller since they are held for longer periods or need to be on gimbals. Here weight and size become real considerations. Generally, since battery life can be extended by an external battery and the need of a vertical grip superfluous, pros tend not to use vertical grip on cameras. However, in light of how many would like to use grips in video, I will state this is just my opinion.

Asked by: Todd
It cannot. This is for the GH5 and GH5S only. Instead you would need BH #VEBGP1 which is the Vello BG-P1 Battery Grip for Panasonic Lumix GH3 and GH4. https://bhpho.to/2LZ4GXr
