Sony Vertical Grip for Alpha a9 Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

The VG-C3EM Vertical Grip for the a9 makes shooting in vertical orientation just as efficient and comfortable as horizontal orientation with a full complement of essential controls, including a duplicate Multi-Selector. The grip shape is identical to the grip on the camera body, so no hold adjustment is required and features a robust dust and moisture resistant magnesium alloy exterior for high rigidity, durability, and maximum reliability.

Made for a9, this camera grip provides secure holding when shooting with the camera held vertically, just the same as with horizontal composition. Two NP-FZ100 batteries can be loaded for longer hours of shooting and the grip supports USB charging via the camera body.

Equal vertical and horizontal operability

VG-C3EM body design makes it almost equally easy to control the camera in vertical and horizontal positions, thanks to keys and controls that are nearly the same as those on the back of the camera body. For example, the vertical grip provides a Multi Selector for fast selection of an AF point.

Grip-shape like a9 body for assured hold

VG-C3EM provides a grip-shape like that of the α9 body, allowing you to get an enhanced hold for confident shooting in vertical position that is virtually the same as that in horizontal position.

Nearly 2x longer stamina

VG-C3EM vertical grip loads two NP-FZ100 batteries in its housing. You can check the camera LCD monitor to see the remaining power of the battery in use as a percentage (1% minimum unit) on the power indicator. When the power of one battery runs out, the other battery automatically switches on to continue operation.

USB power charging via camera body

You can charge batteries loaded in the vertical grip, using the camera’s USB port without detaching the grip from the camera body.

Highly rigid magnesium for exterior

Made of magnesium alloy, the same as a9, this grip is highly rigid and lightweight.

Careful attention to dust/moisture resistance

Effective dust- and moisture-resistant sealing is applied to key and controls, as well as ports and electric contacts, for tough usage in harsh shooting conditions.
