BG-F1
BATTERY GRIP
Designed for the Fujifilm X-T1
Mirrorless Camera
Introduction
The Vello BG-F1 is designed specifically for the Fujifilm
X-T1 Mirrorless Camera. In addition to the battery in
your camera, the BG-F1 accepts one Fujifilm NP-W126
rechargeable battery to effectively double your camera’s
runtime, making it easier to shoot for longer durations
without replacing your camera’s batteries.
The BG-F1 attaches securely to your camera’s 1/4"-20
tripod socket with nonslip rubber enhancing your grip
when shooting in vertical position. Alternate shutterrelease, AF-L, AE-L, and F.A. buttons, plus front and rear
command dials, make it comfortable to shoot in portrait
orientation, so you won’t have to twist your arm to get
the right shot.

3.
Using the Grip
All the controls on the BG-F1 will perform the same functions as the corresponding controls on your camera. For
more information on their specific functions, refer to your camera’s instruction manual.
The BG-F1’s controls are ideal for shooting in portrait orientation and will work with your camera even if there is a
battery installed only in the camera and not in the grip. They will also work if there is a battery installed only in the
grip and not in the camera. To activate the controls on the BG-F1, slide the control-lock switch to the On position.
Deactivating the BG-F1’s controls is ideal for shooting in landscape orientation, when you may inadvertently press one
of the grip’s buttons. To deactivate the controls, slide the control-lock switch to the Off position.
Note: The BG-F1’s control-lock switch will deactivate only the grip’s controls. It will not turn off your camera or prevent it from
drawing power from the BG-F1 if it is set to do so. To turn off your camera, use your camera’s power switch.
