Vello BG-BMP6K Reviews

Exceeded My Expectations

By Hugh

I can get about 70 to 80 minutes of continued use on my BMPCC4K with this. I love how easy it is to charge the batteries then install this grip to my camera. Please read the short instruction manual in its entirety before using this product as it is pretty specific about never charging the batteries while this is attached to the camera. To me that is no inconvenience at all. Charging the batteries in this unit is a cinch. Just install the batteries and plug it into a wall outlet using the supplied usb-c charging cord. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one if I find I need it.

Dudoso

Por el precio que tiene no se puede esperar mucho, pero se nota una construcción de calidad baja, y la información de carga de las baterías es confusa, creo que tiene algunos problemas de comunicación con la cámara.

Great with one issue...

Battery grip works as advertised, nice long record time and you can charge all three batteries in the grip with usb. The problem comes when you try top add this grip into a cage or rail system. The 1/4 mount on the bottom of the grip is offset substantially to the right making it impossible to use a cage or attach a rail system.

Gives me almost 2 hours of recording time

Fits perfectly on the Pocket 4K/6K camera and uses cheap LP-E6 batteries which I have many of, giving me about 2 hours of recording time.

Works fine so far

Bought this for a quick power solution when I don't want to use a big rig for my BMPCC 6k. So far so good.

Works well with Ronin-S

By Jason

Generally more than I bargained for. The 1/4-20 hole on the bottom of the grip is offset in a way that helps the camera balance on a Ronin-S without a special offset plate. It also includes a USB-C charger, which is growing less common as companies assume you already own some kind of charger. Finally, not only does it include a hidden compartment to store your battery door, but the compartment is padded to eliminate any rattling from the door contained within - a very thoughtful addition. The plastic feels cheaper than the camera body, but Vello did mimic the texture of the BMPCC4/6K, so it looks consistent. There is a note in the instructions to remove the grip from the camera before charging through the USB-C adapter, or risk damage to grip and camera. I'm glad I saw it, but I wish they'd explained the risk more. Is it a 100% smoke-and-flames guarantee, or a remote chance of thermal damage over years of use? No idea.

They don't need to be the same brand, but since it only takes LP-E6 batteries, then the size has to be the same.

Is it possible to charge the batteries in the grip while powering the camera? Like, could I run a USB battery Bank into the grip to get even longer recording times?
Asked by: Phil
It is not possible to charge the batteries in the power grip you will need to take the batteries out of the battery grip to recharge them. You can extend your cameras recording time by plugging in a USB power Bank. It will reduce the amount of power the camera pulls from the battery grip which will enable the camera to run for a longer period of time.
