The Olympus Power Battery Holder HLD-6

The Olympus Power Battery Holder HLD-6 is a dust- and splash-proof battery holder / grip combination that has been designed especially for use with the Olympus E-M5. You can separate the unit into 2 parts: One fit for shooting in landscape orientation and the other better suited for portraiture.

The landscape unit features an integrated shutter button, plus a dial for locking the grip onto the bottom of the E-M5. The portrait unit has a molded grip to ensure sturdy shooting while your camera is being held in the vertical (portrait) orientation, as well as a built-in shutter button and 2 built-in function buttons that can be programmed independently of those on the E-M5 body. It also includes a DC-IN jack for continuous powered shooting, which requires the optional AC-3 Power Adapter (not included). There's also a compartment allowing for the storage of an optional additional BLN-1 lithium-ion battery.

When shooting with the E-M5 and 2 batteries, you may select which battery to use first. Then, once that one is drained, the camera will start using the second, providing uninterrupted shooting.

Tim's Take

No question, if you’re using the Olympus E-M5, you want this grip. If you don’t shoot too many vertical images or don’t want to add the weight, just take off the battery holder. The hand grip alone offers such an improved shooting experience with the E-M5 that you won’t want to shoot without it. And for an added plus, the two-part grip makes the E-M5 setup look like a shrunken Pro DSLR.
