Comfortable and Ergonomic
A firm, comfortable grip for vertical-position shooting with the Sony Alpha a77, a77 II, or a99 II. Buttons and controls are conveniently placed and easy to reach for greater comfort.
Dual Batteries
Holds two InfoLITHIUM batteries for extended shooting (sold separately). Stamina power for up to 1,060 shots. The battery grip does not have a charging function, so the batteries would have to be charged using the camera body.
Gasket-Sealed
The rugged, but lightweight, body design has gasket-sealed controls to resist dust and moisture. The grip has a 1/4" tripod mount on the bottom.
Auto Switching Power
When using two batteries, the grip will automatically switch to the second battery if the first becomes depleted. Switching does not interrupt camera operation.
Accurate Battery Life Indicator
Accurate remaining power indicator shows remaining power in percentage. When using two batteries, indicators show which battery is being used and what percentage of life is left.

question

will this grip work with the Alpha SLT-A65?
Asked by: Anonymous
This battery grip is designed specifically for the Sony A77 and will not be compatible with the A65.

question

With two batteries in the grip, does the camera body also/still need to have a battery in place?
Asked by: John M.
No, it's not possible. As you can see from the picture of the grip it has a portion that goes straight into the battery chamber of the camera. So, only 2 batteries that reside in the grip can be used.

question

can this also fit the sony a58?
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm afraid that I don't own the a58, so I'm not absolutely sure that it will fit. I have a few other cameras by Sony (a200, a77, a850) and they all have different vertical grips per model. I went out to Sony's website and the grip only lists the a77 as capatible - so I would think that it will not fit.

question

How do I take the battery cover or Lid off of my a77 camera? so I can attach the vertical Battery Grip. It doesn't look like Sony made a easy way to take the lid off. Henry Bender
Asked by: Anonymous
