Offering a more comfortable grip along with extended battery life, the HLD-9 Power Battery Gripis dedicated to the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II mirrorless camera. Featuring a well-matched physical design, this battery grip duplicates the control set of the camera body for more intuitive settings adjustment when shooting in the vertical orientation, and includes a secondary front dial, shutter button, rear dial, two function buttons, a vertical shooting lock, an OK button, and an arrow pad. The grip also matches the durable construction of the camera body, and is dust, splash, and freezeproof to support shooting in trying environmental conditions. Beyond a more ergonomic and intuitive means for handling the camera, this grip also supports the use of an additional BLH-1 lithium-ion battery to effectively double the battery life while shooting. Alternatively, an AC-5 AC Adapter can also be paired with the battery grip for virtually indefinite power via 100-240 VAC.
