Hi Barrie,

The addition of the battery grip gives a very welcome increase in grip area when shooting in landscape. In the portrait mode, I would say it was OK but, the eyepiece is below centre which I find takes some getting used to. From my own point of view, I would have preferred the the shutter release & controls on the other side of the HLD-4. This would have placed the eyepiece above the the camera centre line.
