The Olympus HLD-8 is a battery grip for OM-D E-M5 Mark II system camera. Two part design with two different grips, one for landscape shots and one for portrait shots. Ergonomic (giving firm grip and increased stability), splash-proof and dust-proof. Uses two Olympus BLN-1 batteries for superior power longevity. No batteries are included with the Olympus HLD-8 grip.
The HLD-8G features an alternate shutter release button 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. You can choose which battery to use first and the camera will start using the second one automatically once the first is drained. The HLD-6P also offers a vertical-shooting shutter release and a control dial, along with a function lever and two function buttons. These buttons can be programmed independently of those on the E-M5 Mk II. Additionally, a DC-IN jack on the HLD-6P accepts the AC-3 AC adapter to power the camera continuously for long-term use.
Both units are moulded 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 splash-proof to protect against the elements.
