I have the vertical grip for the A77 and am really happy with. That was the reason I bought the vertical grip for the A99. I do a lot of pictures mostly sports and at least a third I take in the vertical position. So it really pays off for me. The ergonomics of that grip are outstanding. If fits my hand perfectly. I have to mention I have small hands. Another benefit is it takes two additional batteries and preserves the one in the camera, so you have three batteries available. I don't know about you, but that is enough to shoot stills all day long all day strong with the GPS turned on. Money well spend in my opinion.

It is rugged and does what it's suppose to do. I like the fact that I can keep one battery in the body and two in the grip making three batteries total. This comes in handy with the extra power used by the a99s electronic view finder.
I recently shot an all day event and had power to spare at the end of the day. It's kind of expensive but if you shoot 100s of pictures you will need it and you will be glad you bought one.

Excellent edition to the camera! I am glad I purchased this. I have owned now three sony alpha cameras in the past 4-5 years and I finally decided to knuckle down and buy this more for the batteries than anything. I tend to shoot long exposure at night using my camera (star trails, ISS transits, etc) and the batteries tend to be a factor sometimes. With this, I get the battery in the camera and two additional batteries (all the same size and interchangeable so you could be charging three and then replace these and keep shooting). I find the redundant buttons an option that can be convenient and helpful, depending upon the shot, but for tripod mounting you would likely never use them. I have used them and they work flawlessly when integrated into the camera. When this is attached you have to be sure if your going to store the camera to account for the extra depth in the camera with this attached. This item does add to the weight of the gear which I would imagine could be fatiguing for most of us if we are shooting and moving frequently. I would advise you see this in person if possible before buying it online if this is your first time buying this type of attachment to ensure this is going to be added value to you and worth the extra weight and encumbrance it brings. If you shoot on tripods like I usually do, it is irrelevant if you have a sturdy tripod which is properly set-up, but then again, it only adds battery power for me for the most part and the extra buttons are redundant.

I bought the grip because I heard the battery life on the A99 is nothing to write home about, and my experiences have shown this to be true: It eats through your battery about as fast as the Gamegear does. So, I purchased the battery grip, and have been pleasantly surprised about how well it works. Sure, it does add some weight and size to the camera, but it really does include all the bells and whistles that you would expect. Overall, I am quite happy with this purchase. It does the job well.

Pros:
- 2 extra batteries
- Buttons function just like they do on the body
- On/Off toggle for preserving battery life/preventing random button clicks
- Sturdy, made of good materials

Cons:
- No image preview button on the grip
- MF/AF button feels a little high up, and I have big hands.
- Price. Try and get used if possible.

This is a must for any serious Photographer. It dose ad weight to the camera, but that is out shined by having all the buttons in portrait Position. Not to mention the added 2 battery capacity for a total of 3 batteries. Long shoots are no longer an issue. THe additional weight helps with longer focal length lens counterweight.

Love my grip for my A99. Works well for me. I have freakishly long hands and needed that balance. I'm looking to get a second A99 and camera. Worth the investment.

I am not sure how I got along without this. It stores two additional batteries inside the grip, which has increased my shoot time significantly. The button location is the same as the A-99, so it is very intuitive. I would recommend this to anyone with an A-99.

I got the grip with a bundle so I can't complain about it at all. It does what it says it does, and great for portraits pics. Loved it
