1 DIS­CRETE SHOOT­ING

Hav­ing a sec­ond shut­ter but­ton can al­low less con­spic­u­ous shoot­ing, as the shut­ter can be trig­gered from the bot­tom of the cam­era – not where peo­ple ex­pect a pho­tog­ra­pher to be con­trol­ling their cam­era from in busy street scenes. shoot ‘from the hip’ with ease.

2 IM­PROVED BAL­ANCE

A ver­ti­cal grip also adds weight to the cam­era body, pro­vid­ing bet­ter bal­ance when shoot­ing with heavy lenses. The ex­tra space also makes han­dling eas­ier with larger hands, which may oth­er­wise re­quire fin­gers to be placed un­der the cam­era.

3 IN­CREASED FRAME RATE

Of­ten poorly ad­ver­tised, some cam­eras can shoot at a higher burst rate when a bat­tery grip (fit­ted with two bat­ter­ies) is at­tached. in some cases up to two or three frames per sec­ond more can be achieved, mak­ing full use of the cam­era’s ac­tion shoot­ing po­ten­tial.
