Camera Battery Grips for Sony
There are a variety of different camera battery grips for Sony available. It doesn't matter whether you are a professional photographer or an amateur hobbyist, equipping your camera with a battery grip is a useful and efficient camera accessory that comes with multiple benefits for the user.
A camera grip is designed to carry additional batteries at all times. Having even one extra battery with you effectively doubles your shooting time as you'll have at least twice the usual amount of time to take photographs. You'll be shooting continuously for hours at a time! Camera grips also feature vertical shutter button, shutter-lock switch, AF-lock button, AE-lock button and completely support auto function and a wired controlled shutter release button. Featuring additional controls like this is particularly convenient when taking a vertical shot as you will be able to control your camera effectively and comfortably in a different orientation.
These battery grips use lithium-ion batteries and are compatible with a range of different Sony digital cameras . Some of the designs also include a wireless camera remote control that can be transmitted within 100 metres and supports delay, exposure time, interval modes and number of shoots.
These battery grips are designed to assist you when you need to steady your hand while capturing still life shots and portraits. They also retrain the tripod mounting thread so if you do decide you want to stabilise your camera you can do so with ease.
A giant in the technology world, Sony was founded by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita in 1947 and were first known as Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation. The company changed its name to Sony in 1958.
The name itself was chosen as a mix of two words. This first is 'sonus' which is a Latin word and the root of sonic and sound, while the second was 'sonny' a popular name given to boys and young men in America in the 1950s. In the same period in Japan 'sonny boys' were considered to be smart and presentable young men, which the founders of Sony considered themselves to be.
