Fuji X-T1 Vertical Grip Review | Dave Young

If you’re a Fuji X-T1 owner, you’ll know that one of the very few disadvantages of it is the relatively short battery life, something not uncommon in almost all Fuji models. A simple option to assist you in increasing the shot count is to match it to the X-T1 Vertical Grip. By adding a second battery it doubles the shooting capacity to approximately 700 whilst providing the option to shoot vertical in portrait mode. Attaching to the camera body is simple. Remove the rubber cover on the base of the body which is stowed in a useful recess in the grip for safe keeping and then simply screw the grip into the tripod socket using the sturdy locking wheel.  There are two metal posts on either end of the grip which insert into the base of the camera to help prevent twist or flex of the grip once attached.  The VG-XT1 offers a dust and water resistant body just as the X-T1 does and features twin command dials, AE-L and AF-L buttons, focus assist button and a shutter release button together with a tripod mounting thread…….
