Product Description

Product Description

The most remarkable thing about this supporting battery grip is its innovative two-part design with two different types of grips for landscape (HLD-6G) and portrait (HLD-6P) shots.

Attach to your camera only the HLD-6G and the bigger landscape grip offers much more grip. Adding the lower HLD-6 part (the HLD-6P) also difficult portrait shootings will be easy to handle with further dials and buttons.

The lower grip also includes an additional shutter release for greater comfort and speed when the camera is vertically upturned, and 2 additional dials and fn buttons for easy and fast adjustments are available in this position too. Both parts are also ergonomically designed for a firm natural grip, greatly improving the overall stability of the camera in your hand and the button lock switch prevents pushing any buttons unintentionally. An additional battery (not included) can also be slotted into the lower grip, extending overall battery life for longer shooting times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Design - Helps with larger lenses 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a superb addition to the OMD EM-5 and seems very well made. If you only install the first section then the tripod hole is aligned with the centre of the sensor plane, which is useful for panoramic work.

The second section adds quite a bit of heft to the camera, but in doing so it does seem to help with overall stability when using lenses such as the 75-300mm. The design has some nice touches too, such as: a lock switch on the battery holder part to prevent inadvertent activation of the secondary shutter button and recesses to hold the rubber connector covers on each of the two sections so as not to lose them.

I mostly use the camera with just the first part installed as it makes the camera so much easier to hold; my hands are more used holding much larger DSLR's. The only downside is the lack of accessibility of the battery compartment with only the first part installed, meaning you have to remove it when switching batteries. It would be nice if the grip could hold two batteries, but in defense of Olympus the clever design of the OMD system allows you to select which battery, internal or external, that you wish to deplete first. You can even elect to leave out the internal battery altogether.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific and ingenious 20 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
Very well planned and very useful, it's the best design I've ever had.

it makes your OM-D much more manageable and is essential for use with
bigger 4/3rds lenses like the 50-200mm

...if you have big hands or do professional work. Nice build quality. We can switch between grip and body batteries without turning off the camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Olympus HLD-6 Power Battery Grip for OM-D E-M5 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
The grip attaches to the bottom of the E-M5 and provides a trigger in both the vertical and horizontal plane which alleviates the contortionist factor. The battery is now housed in the grip and for those that want to afford it a second battery can be placed in the camera. Excellent purchase from Amazon. Recommended.
