The Sony Vertical Battery Grip for Alpha A99 Digital SLR Cameras features optimal contours and essential controls that provide comfort and handling on a par with horizontal shooting. With a newly designed system that offers a triple battery advantage (two batteries in grip plus one in the camera), you will experience the ultimate in extended shooting and playback.
Firm Holding and Control When Shooting Vertically
Shutter button is located at the low position for easy holding and positioning. All buttons are located in the most appropriate position for setting and controlling the camera when shooting vertically. Strap hole is added so the STP-GB1AM Grip Belt can easily be attached to the Vertical Grip.
Auto Switching Power
Auto switching to backup batteries for uninterrupted shooting. The batteries in the grip can be replaced without turning the camera power off.
Total of Three NP-FM500H for Enhanced Power Supply
Three NP-FM500H batteries (including one battery in the camera body, each sold separately) triple the battery performance compared to that of camera body alone. A battery with lower power in the grip is used first, and automatically switched over to the other when it runs out. The one in camera body is used at last to maximize shooting time. Remaining power of current battery conveniently indicated in percentages on the cameras LCD monitor.
Dust and Moisture Resistant Design
Buttons, dials, battery cover and connecting terminal to the camera are securely sealed for dust and moisture protection.

Top Customer Reviews
- 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
- 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.
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.
I don't think I would buy this again, the only thing I really like about it is 2 extra battery capacity, but it is quick enough to change batteries when the action slows down. Otherwise it makes the camera too un-wieldy, even on a black rapid strap. The camera bangs into everything and it is clumsy to use. The only other reason I would look at this grip is if you shoot in portrait orientation for long periods of time, or if you just want to use your camera as a club.

Very good, don't have to remove battery from body so now there are three batteries.Published 11 months ago by G. Brown
This is one of the best battery grips for any camera. I love that you can load 2 batteries and replace without having to shut off the camera. Read morePublished 15 months ago by JJ Sereday
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.Published on December 11, 2013 by TomTom Club
Wonderful to have 3 batteries in the SONY A99 as it devours batteries like a senior citizen at an early bird buffet.Published on October 12, 2013 by Shinebox
