    Wish I'd have known you wanted one. I've an unused one you could have had! Must get round to advertising the damned thing.

            Doesn't that make you spit chips when the price is so low after you buy.

                    Help,
                    Bought a new one from Oly UK. What is the knurled knob for on the grip, it just keeps turning.
                    Also I have read that you can store the camera battery cover that you need to remove to fit the HLD-5 Grip somewhere in/on the grip, if so where?
                    Thanks

                      The knurled knob replaces the thumb wheel on the camera when you operate in portrait. If you set the little slider switch to "lock" it stops this and the shutter button on the grip operating when you operate in landscape.
                      The camera battery door fits into a neat little slot on the "prong" that fits into the camera body. There is a picture on the instruction leaflet but it's not very clear.

                      Hope this helps.

                        Thank you, that's really helpful. I'll have a play now. Is there an instruction manual that I can download/view? There was nothing in the box but warranty blurb.

                          There should be a manual in the right side of the box, small but thick as it contains all languages.

                            Thanks Francois.
                            Even this doesn't explain how to use it or how it works. I've got no idea what to do really.

                              Hi Abacus.

                              The instructions are rubbish.

                              I simply took the battery out of the cameran and inserted it, together with another, into the grip as it takes two.

                              unclip the battery compartment cover from the bottom of the camera, it comes right off and fits into the recess on the sticky out bit of the grip that then slides into the battery compartment.

                              Slide the grip into the battery compartment on the camera until it stops

                              use the large thumb wheel on the back of the grip marked "lock", turning it in the direction of the arrow cinches the grip to the body using the tripod mounting thread.

                              Thats it, camera should now work with two batteries instead of one, I have had mine on for about a week and haven't had to recharge yet.

                              The only other control is the little slide switch on the grip, in the "lock" position nothing on the grip works.

                              Slide it to the right and the activation button on the bottom front right corner of the grip works as well as the camera shutter activation button and the thumb wheel on the grip does the same as the little thumb wheel on the camera body, e.g. changes aperture size in aperture priority. These are ideal when shooting with teh camera on its side to give a portrait format image, other than that I leave it in the "lock" position

                              As far as I can tell thats all there is to it.
