Vertical Grip

Vertical Grip

Provides similar operating ease in both vertical and horizontal orientation. The ingenious grip design offers a firm grip while maintaining reliable dust/moisture resistance1.
Vertical Grip

Easy operation in vertical orientation

The VG-C4EM provides operational controls nearly the same as those of the camera body. The location, size, and shape of buttons are optimized, using the same material as the α9 II and α7R IV bodies. As a result, the function, location and operational "feel" of the controls simulates those on the camera body, when the camera is held vertically.

Firm and secure grip

The ingenious design of the grip lets you hold the camera firmly. The Vertical Grip allows you to shoot photos easily and enjoyably, regardless of whether you hold the camera horizontally or vertically, making it easier to concentrate on the subject and composition.

Effective operating duration doubled

The VG-C4EM can hold one or two NP-FZ100 batteries. When using two batteries, the camera will operate for nearly twice as long as when using one battery. Remaining battery power is indicated on the LCD screen, in 1% increments. When one battery expires, the camera automatically switches to the other, allowing continuous operation.

Recharge batteries or supply power via USB2

Batteries in the vertical grip can be recharged via the camera's USB port, without detaching the grip from the camera. For extended shooting sessions, extra power can be supplied direct to the camera via the camera's USB port2 using a mobile battery or AC adapter to supplement battery power.

Light yet durable magnesium alloy body

The exterior of the VG-C4EM is made of the same magnesium alloy used in the α9 II and α7R IV bodies, providing the same rigidity as the cameras themselves while keeping the overall weight and bulk to a minimum.

Reliable dust/moisture resistance1

The camera-grip attachment features the same sealing material used on the camera body to keep out dust and moisture. This improves the overall reliability of the camera system.

Notice

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