Sony Bluetooth Handgrip: No more cables!

Sony introduced the GP-VPT2BT in a continued attempt to target the vloggers and travel shooters: a "wireless shooting grip" for mirrorless cameras that lets users easily switch between shooting video and running stills.


The GP-VPT2BT is a "wireless remote controller shooting arm" that is compatible with all Sony's latest mirrorless cameras— the a9 II, a9, a7R IV, a7R III, a7 III, a6600, a6400, and a6100—as well as the RX100 VII and RX0 II, as long as the current firmware works. The grip allows you to use the camera securely at the length of your face, while putting control of key camera functions right on your handle.




On-grip controls include log, shutter, zoom, a custom toggle, tilt adjustment, and a lock switch, as you can see from the picture above. There's also a "flip" button that helps you to rotate the camera 180 ° without removing it from the 1/4′′-20 frame, and the portion of the grip can be extended to serve as a tabletop tripod.


The grip interacts with compatible Sony cameras using Bluetooth, and features a "resistant" nature of dust and moisture that is designed to withstand some light abuse but is not "evidence" of dust and moisture. The Sony GP-VPT2BT is shipping for $140 US.
