After shooting a full day with the battery grip, I was super stoked to have double the battery life. In my experience, it was ergonomic, functional, well-designed (I really liked having access to so many controls in landscape and portrait). Great part to add on to the kit.

Love the extra battery life

About to head on a European tour, and was looking for a way to increase battery life to handle a dull day of shooting. Really impressed with the build quality, and while I have only taken it on a few weekend excursions, it has met my battery expectations. Bonuses are the side grip controls for portrait shooting...nice feel to the controls. And really appreciate that you can lock out the shutter controls on the side grip to prevent inadvertent activation.

Pricey but Good..........

There are knockoffs but I paid for the OEM version cause' it fits and it works as I expect it to. B&H packed it well, and shipped and delivered promptly. Easy to give 5 stars.

Probably need to replace

While in the vertical position the shutter button does not focus. In that position, focus can only be done using back button focus. Sony Pro Support says not serviceable. I have lived with the issue but not sure if it is designed to work this way, so another one may perform differently.

Not a cheap grip but it is built like a tank!

Necessary for Extended Shoots!

I like the grip. It is nothing exceptional but necessary. However, I do find that Sony batteries last a long time for me - I can get 1000 or so shots on one battery. But with the kind of photography I do you never know when you may need longer power. The only thing that irks me is the price - but as a Sony shooter, I should be used to high prices on equipment.

Hello I recently made the switch from Nikon to Sony. I bought this battery pack and I've noticed a slight gap between the camera and the battery pack. Is this common for Sony battery grips? The battery grip I had for my Nikon fit flushed to the camera so I'm not sure if the gap is a common thing or I have a faulty battery grip.
Asked by: Anthony
A small gap is normal and within spec.
