Key Features

Equal vertical and horizontal operability

Equal vertical and horizontal operability

VG-C3EM body design makes it almost equally easy to control the camera in vertical and horizontal positions, thanks to keys and controls that are nearly the same as those on the back of the camera body. For example, the vertical grip provides a Multi Selector for fast selection of an AF point.

Grip-shape like a9 body for assured hold

Grip-shape like a9 body for assured hold

VG-C3EM provides a Grip-shape like that of the a9 body, allowing you to get an enhanced hold for confident shooting in vertical position that is virtually the same as that in horizontal position.

Nearly 2x longer stamina

Nearly 2x longer stamina

VG-C3EM vertical grip loads two NP-FZ100 batteries in its housing. You can check the camera LCD monitor to see the remaining power of the battery in use as a percentage (1% minimum unit) on the power indicator. When the power of one battery runs out, the other battery automatically switches on to continue operation.

USB power charging via camera body

USB power charging via camera body

You can charge batteries loaded in the vertical grip, using the camera's USB port without detaching the grip from the camera body.

Highly rigid magnesium for exterior

Highly rigid magnesium for exterior

Made of magnesium alloy, the same as a9, this grip is highly rigid and lightweight.

Careful attention to dust/moisture resistance

Careful attention to dust/moisture resistance

Effective dust- and moisture-resistant sealing is applied to key and controls, as well as ports and electric contacts, for tough usage in harsh shooting conditions.

Compatibility information

The simultaneous installation of this unit with the LA-EA2 / EA4 mount adaptor is not supported. If both are installed at the same time, the narrow clearance between the unit and the lens mount adaptor makes it hard to hold the grip.
