BG-S7
BATTERY GRIP
Designed for the
Sony Alpha a7R IV and a9 II
Mirrorless Cameras
Thank you for
choosing Vello.
The Vello BG-S7 battery grip offers extended shooting
time and comfort when shooting in a vertical (portrait)
orientation. The grip is compatible with the Sony a7R IV
and a9 II mirrorless cameras and accepts up to two Sony
NP-FZ100 rechargeable batteries. It offers an alternate
shutter release button, AF-ON and AEL buttons, two
custom buttons, a multi-selector, and front and rear
dials. This makes the grip ideal for shooting portrait
photography. There is also a convenient control-lock
switch to prevent unwanted triggering of the grip’s
controls. For connectivity, there is a mount on the
bottom for standard tripods and a mount on the top for
hand straps.
