HLD-8 Battery Grip Holder
Battery grip for E-M5 Mark II
The HLD-8 Grip from Olympus is designed to improve the handling of your OM-D E-M5 Mark II, while increasing your shooting time. It includes both the HLD-8G L-shaped, ergonomic external hand grip, and the HLD-6P battery grip. Both units are molded for a comfortable hold. These two grips can be used together with or without the optional GS-5 Grip Strap, and the HLD-6P can also be detached to allow you to use the hand grip alone. The two grips together and the HLD-8G alone are dust and splashproof to protect against the elements. It features an vertical-shooting shutter release button, control dial, function lever, two programmable function buttons, and a headphone jack for audio playback, as well as contacts and a locking dial for secure connection to the camera. The HLD-6P accepts an extra BLN-1 battery. Choose whether to use the battery in the grip first, or the battery in camera - the second battery will automatically be used when the first is drained. Additionally, a DC-IN jack on the HLD-6P accepts the AC-3 AC adapter to power the camera continuously for long-term use.
