Vello BG-S1 overview

  • 1Description

The BG-S1 Battery Grip for Sony A77, A77 II & A99 II Digital Camera from Vello is a battery grip designed for use specifically with the Sony A77, A77 II, and A99 II (not original version) digital cameras, and accepts one or two NP-FM500H lithium-ion batteries. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. Moreover, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery.

The design of a battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. It will reduce wrist and hand fatigue when shooting vertically for extended periods of time. The BG-S1 has an alternate shutter release button designed for ergonomic access when shooting vertically and anti-slip rubber gripping to further improve handling. In addition, the BG-S1 has an alternate AF start button, smart teleconverter/focus magnifier, Fn/image rotation button, AEL/slow sync/image index button, AF/MF/enlarge button, exposure compensation buttons, a Multi selector and a main dial. It also features a tripod socket, a strap lug for attaching a hand strap to the camera and a convenient internal slot to fit the camera's battery door when the grip is attached. A battery tray is included to house the NP-FM500H batteries within the grip.

Compatible with Sony Alpha A77, A77 II & A99 II DSLR Cameras
Comfortable and secure handling when shooting in the vertical position, including a secondary shutter release button, AF start button, smart teleconverter/focus magnifier, Fn/image rotation button, AEL/slow sync/image index, AF/MF/enlarge button, and exposure compensation buttons, a Multi selector, and a main dial.

    Vello BG-S1 reviews

    BG-S1 Battery Grip for Sony A77, A77 II & A99 II Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I was pleasantly surprised at the fit and finish of this grip, all functions work perfect, fit and finish is on same level as my Sony A 77 2. You could pay a whole lot more and and end up with nearly the same thing. Just buy it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Adds the extra battery power I needed as the A77 can go through the batteries fairly quickly when doing some extended work. This product works well and appears as OEM minus the name tag. Does not have the gasket to help weather seal though so if your going to be shooting in bad weather you should go with the Sony model. All other aspects such as fit, finish, and function are great. Although this was a gift I had planned to make this purchase myself and am glad to own this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate, but not Sony Light construction,but at the price of the Sony, this will do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as the Sony I bought the battery grip for shooting Senior portraits but I have yet to take it off my camera. I like the solid feel of this grip and the extra battery capacity is a total plus! I have two words for you, BUY IT! If you shoot plenty of portraits you will not regret this purchase. If you are a professional photographer this grip will be paid for with the first session you book.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No-Brainer At four times cheaper than the sony equivalent, what's not to love about this. Once it is on the camera, its impossible to tell it isn't a sony and it functions just as well.
    Date published: 2016-09-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as the Sony model! This is a great product for less than half of the OEM version... I have one of each for my 2 A77's and this one works just as well as the overpriced Sony grip! Great Buy
    Date published: 2013-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item Works well for taking movies or photos. Can take up to ten or twelve hours without running out of power. Just enjoy it.
