The same hold and control as the α9 III
The VG-C5 Vertical Grip has been designed to provide the same secure hold and control access as the camera’s own horizontal grip, delivering outstanding comfort and operability for long shooting sessions. The grip and shutter button feature the same ergonomic design as the camera body. Control access is similar too, with an independent front custom button (C5), a front dial, and rear L and R dials with a lock function on the R dial. Operation is the same when shooting in horizontal and vertical orientations.
Efficient utilisation of two batteries for extended shooting
The VG-C5 Vertical Grip can house two NP-FZ100 batteries, and circuitry refinements support parallel power supply to provide longer operating duration than the VG-C4EM Vertical Grip. The time remaining for both batteries is simultaneously shown on the camera display so the user can continue shooting with confidence.
Part of a durable, reliable system
With the same dust and moisture resistant design as the camera body itself, the VG-C5 Vertical Grip functions as part of a dependable system that will keep working reliably even in challenging conditions. It is also built on a special magnesium alloy frame for outstanding durability.
The VG-C5 Vertical Grip provides an easy-access sliding battery tray, tripod mount socket, camera strap attachment points, AF ON / AEL / C1 / C2 / C5 buttons, Multi Selector, and Rear dial R lock, and supports power and charging via the camera’s USB Type-C® connector.
Recyclable non-plastic packaging materials
Sony is transitioning to the use of non-plastic packaging materials that provide ample protection against shock and impact. Plant-based non-woven fabrics are used for product bags. All of this helps to minimise environmental stress.
