A split decision on this,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VG-B50AM Compatible Battery Grip For Sony DSLR-A500 & A550 Alpha 500 550 Digital Cameras (Electronics)
As a grip to help hold camera vertical and take shots works okay for the price. As a battery grip it is rubbish. Only registers one of the two batteries and if left with the batteries in they drain power very quickly and completely! So the idea mod extending my shooting time is a complete no-no! I did try to reach the suppliers via the be site but the links are so tenuous that I gave up. As a vertical grip worth half the price at best. As a battery holder it's not worth anything. If I could get a refund I would gladly return it........
