The dedicated VC-7D Vertical Control Grip for the Maxxum 7D connects to the camera body and provides a reassuringly firm grip on the camera. It enhances easy, upright camera control and overall ease of use, particularly when shooting upright, portrait-format shots.
Comfortable operation and handling for vertical shooting
The VC-7D?s sure-hold grip gives confident handling characteristics and the grip has a dedicated shutter-release button, front, and rear control dials, AF/MF control button, AE lock button, and AF area selector button, thereby delivering comfortable and reassuring handling characteristics to the camera in either horizontal or vertical shooting situations.
Dual Lithium-ion batteries can be attached at once
The VC-7D allows two Lithium-ion batteries to be used simultaneously for an enhanced power supply. This allows photographers to take advantage of shooting many more images before worrying about recharging the batteries.
AA batteries can also be used
Adding still more versatility, standard AA Ni-MH batteries can also be used in the grip to power the camera (6 AA batteries)
