Extend your shooting time and increase the comfort and security of your grip with this convenient battery holder/grip for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 digital camera. Splashproof and dustproof, the HLD-6 separates into two parts, allowing it to be useful in both landscape and portrait orientations. The landscape unit includes a built-in shutter button as well as a dial for locking the grip onto the bottom of the E-M5. The portrait unit includes a grip that allows better control when holding the camera vertically, plus a shutter button, two programmable function buttons, and a power jack for continuous shooting (requires the optional AC-3 Power Adapter). It also houses a BLN-1 lithium-ion battery.
