At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.


Overview: The ECM-1 camera grip attaches to the bottom of the Olympus E-M10 camera to give you a better, more secure grip, especially for users with large hands. With a firm grip of the camera, it is easier to avoid blurred images due to camera shake. The ECM-1 screws into the bottom of the E-M10 using the camera's tripod thread. Access to the tripod thread is provided through the bottom of the camera grip, allowing you to mount the camera onto a tripod. When attached, the ECM-1 adds approximately 1/2" to the overall height, and 3.1 ounces to the overall weight of the E-M10 camera.

Fast Release Mechanism: The ECG-1 has a fast release mechanism that allows you to quickly remove most of the camera grip. This provides access to the battery and SD card compartment whenever needed.

Transforms the camera

Written By Art, Lubbock, TX on Sunday, August 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Totally transforms the camera. I missed the handling of dslr but this almost fixed it. Must have accessory. I only wish it has extra power source, but that would probably make it much bulkier.

Not using without Grip

Written By Emir, Turkey on Tuesday, May 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I buy this item for my Om-D EM10. I have installed it when I get the camera. It gives the camera the ability to hold it in one hand with only 2-3 fingers.

I guess there will be cheaper alternatives soon but this is very well made. So I would go with the original olympus.
Good holding position. Built quality.
Not a battery option. Only grip.
