Sony VG-C4EM Reviews

Love the extra battery life

By Timothy

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.

did not know how usefull it is

...which is what I've come to expect from Sony. I'm using this on an A7 IV, and like the grip for the A7 RIII, all the controls feel and function just like the controls on the camera. If you shoot in cold weather (I do), and shoot a fair amount of verticals (I do), then this is a must-have.

Convenient and Comfortable but Pricey

I bought the vertical grip because of the ergonomics (obviously much less tiring on the hand and wrist when shooting vertically) but also because it just feels more secure having more to hold onto (which is nice when you have $2400 worth of camera and $2000 worth of lens in your hand). The extra battery is also very useful. Given my budget for switching camera systems to Sony I initially purchased an aftermarket brand which felt okay (comfort, haptic feedback from buttons, etc) but was obviously really cheaply made. It packed in pretty quickly so I forked out for the Sony but was surprised that it didn't feel all that much better (buttons and such) - and for all Sony's bragging about how strong it I was surprised by how flimsy the plastic tray is that you put the batteries in. As a manufacturer, of all the things I would want to make sure was sturdy and well fabricated, is the bit that keep getting removed by the user over and over. Would I buy it again, yes absolutely, the aftermarket model was a mistake, but I find $400 surprisingly high.

Would Recommend

Makes shooting long events much easier with the added grip. Also if you shoot portrait theres no reason to not get this.

Really great for my A7sIII

I didn't know if this would work with my camera but it turned out perfect and I have no regrets about buying this!

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.
