Wow - that was quick!

I recently bought an E-30 and at the moment you can get either a free HLD-4 power grip, or an FL-36R flash. I have an old FL-36 and don't use flash much so I decided on the HLD-4.

I got all the paperwork together, posted it off to Germany on Saturday morning... AND IT ARRIVED THIS MORNING

Just fitted it, it feels good on the camera and handles nicely

Just a thought - the grip for the E-1 has a slot to store the battery cover removed from the camera - is there one hidden away somewhere on the HLD-4? Otherwise, what do you do with the cover?

Yes,
there is a place for it in the part that slides into the camera battery compartment.

It took me ages to discover this when I got my freebie grip for my E-3.
