My free HLD-7 has arrived

On my return from hols our postman delivered the post collected since we left amongst which was my free HLD-7 vertical battery grip. It was sent from Germany which is where I sent the receipt and on-line code as my E-M1 was bought from my local premier Oly dealer.

I haven't fitted it yet as my E-M1 need a good clean first but it looks to be better designed and built than the HLD-6 for the E-M5, incliding a nice little recess for the removable seal of the E-M1. A useful and well thought out design feature. Well done Oly yet again.

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

It feels really well put together when on the EM-1 and, for me, transforms the camera into something that is a joy to use

Have fun with it Dave (and get those piccies up! )

Good to hear you've received your grip.

Can you recall when you posted your receipt and on line code?

I posted mine on 7th October and have not yet received the grip and adapter.

I posted mine on the same date and am still waiting of both.I know a few people have their items, just wondered if anyone had received both if purchased from a UK dealer.
Could be that one of the items is out of stock(I hope) and that nothing has gone amiss.

Thanks Andy,

Like you, I hope nothing has gone amiss.

As we both posted our claims on the same date, I suspect it's just a case of wait until the kit arrives.

Please post when you receive yours, I'll do likewise.

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

I posted my claim on about the 10th, and am still waiting. According to Olympus, they ARE going out and we should allow about 4 weeks. Which should be now-ish.

Yes, purchased from SRS, sent off voucher and receipt on 6th October and received HLD-7 and MMF-3 about a week ago.

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

Received my grip and adapter on the 7th,having posted the claim on the 8th of October.The camera was bought from Clifton cameras.

Should have had it on the 4th but for some reason there was no address on it,just my name and postcode.It wasn't until the postie put a number to the name that i got it.

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

I still don't know if i'm wasting my time waiting. Is there anyone out there that can confirm if our details arrived in the post or not. Emailing Germany through the Oly site is a waste of time as the site won't accept the verification from the UK.

Does anyone have an eMail address or phone number for the person that matters at Olympus Germany?

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

Can't help with contact details, but I got my grip early last week having posted the paperwork to Germany the day before the deadline. I'd decided to try chasing up this weekend if it hadn't arrived, but instead I'll be giving it a try tomorrow.

I suspect I shan't use it much - I've got quite small hands and find the camera extremely comfortable and stable as it comes, but I suppose it might be useful if we ever get any long, fast m4/3 glass. Or if I succumb to a 90-250!

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

I have found the paperwork that came with my HLD-7, but the date mark just states "in October2013". As we were away for 16days to 9th November it could have been sent at any time before that. Have faith as I am sure that it will turn up OK.
