BG-S1
BATTERY GRIP
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations on
your new BG-S1 battery grip purchase. Enjoy the many
benefits that a battery grip offers, such as extended
shooting time and more control and comfort when
shooting in a vertical (portrait) orientation.
The Vello BG-S1 is compatible with the Sony Alpha
SLT-A77 DSLR camera. The BG-S1 accepts two Sony
NP-FM500H rechargeable batteries. The BG-S1 is
equipped with an alternate shutter-release button,
AF start button, smart teleconverter/focus magnifier,
Fn/image rotation, AEL/slow sync/image index, AF/
MF/enlarge, and exposure compensation buttons, a
Multi selector, and a main dial for shooting in a vertical
position.
