If you own a Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 camera and you would like to increase the number of photos taken before recharging the battery, the original BGG9E battery grip is the ideal solution. When you use the battery grip, you will increase the number of photos you can take to 780 and in the safe mode up to 1,500 photos are possible. The grip is ergonomically shaped and its size even makes it easier to hold the camera. There are added controls such as a lock, an exposure compensation, ISO, white balance, a shutdown, a shutter-release button, a joystick, and front and back control knobs. These elements are specially designed to make taking vertical photos more comfortable.
