2.0 out of 5 stars No focus point contoll on the grip. Are you kidding?, September 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Olympus HLD-6 Battery Holder (Electronics)
Yes I gave 2 stars for something that works great IF you can make it work.
The vertical grip is great addition. The horizontal lacks focus point control. And don't tell me the camera is small and you can reach it. I have big hands and I have trouble reaching it. The only people who would buy it are people who use it fro pro or semi pro shooting. I have never see an grip without focus point control. This is essential!

See Nikon MB-D200 Multi-Power Battery Pack for the D200 Digital Camera - Retail Packaging this was a professional level APS DSLR back in its day.

You can read the specification before you buy the product, why you are talking unfair about the product. You can customize in menu one of the buttons B-Fn1 or B-Fn2 from grip to be the AF Area Select and you can move the focus point with the two dial from the grip, it's so easy. It would be better to read the manual before accuse.

Ahahaha, wrong, I am a pro photographer, but the OM-D is not a pro camera, and I have understand the limitations of this camera and I bought it for many other reasons. A pro photographer should know which are his needs, and buy the proper equipment for his work. If I want to work with my pro camera I will take around 2.5Kg in my right hand, and another 4Kg in my backpack. Yes, the price of the HLD-6 is maybe to big, but the grip is working fine for what was made. Don't forget, the OM-D can't replace a pro DSLR, like I said before, this camera was not declared a pro model, and the grip also could not be a pro.

Is Nikon D300s pro camera? (I hope you agree it is)
Now tell me what it offers over the OMD other than kgs. Except the fact that nikon grip is pro and the fingers fall naturally like they do when you hold it horizontally.
We are talking about grip here. it costs like nikon one and non pros wont buy it.

An interesting thing...several Pro photogs have adopted this camera and have attested that it can, indeed, replace a DSLR. So in that respect..it really does come down to personal use, experience and needs.

Having no focus point on a grip is a valid consideration. Thanks for the review.

I've used a Canon grip that only had like 2 buttons on it. This grip is better in every way. Don't dock 3 stars for a great product just cause you think you're a "pro" and it doesn't meet your "pro" needs. You must hate everything you buy cause I can't imagine a product with every feature possible. Grip works as advertised and adds value to an already fantastic little camera. A pro photographer knows his equipment and solves problems, like how Paul Andrei did. That method works just fine and is quite easy to use. Please take more time and consideration next time you post a review. You're not helping the community this way.
