Olympus HLD-6 Battery Grip

Available Today

The Olympus HLD-6 Battery Grip is a two-part add-on for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Micro 4/3rds camera. In the first stage, it provides a more sturdy grip for your front fingers, as well as an additional shutter button and dial for better ergonomics. By itself, the first stage hand grip doesn’t add much weight or bulkiness to the camera, but makes shooting with the E-M5 quite comfortable.

In the second stage, you get a battery grip that doubles as a full-featured vertical grip. It has the standard shutter button and dial you’d expect out of a vertical grip, but also offers two programable buttons for customization. The battery grip holds one additional BLN-1 lithium battery (included), allowing you to double the battery life of the E-M5.

Both grips offer the same dust and splash-proof design as the Olympus E-M5, making it a must for users who want improved ergonomics, even in sub-par weather conditions.

No question, if you’re using the Olympus E-M5, you want this grip. If you don’t shoot too many vertical images or don’t want to add the weight, just take off the battery holder. The hand grip alone offers such an improve shooting experience with the E-M5 that you won’t want to shoot without it. And for an added plus, the two-part grip makes the E-M5 setup look like a shrunken Pro DSLR.
