The Power Battery Grip HLD-6P is a dustproof and splashproof power battery grip that can enable the capture of approximately 680 shots (based on CIPA tests) between charges. It features a shutter button for shooting with the camera held vertically and two control dials and two function buttons for the same easy controls as when shooting from a horizontal position. This is for the power grip only.

I ordered this battery module/grip together with my OM-D E-M5 camera shortly after the camera began shipping, and love it. The extra power capacity equates to my being able to shoot for a whole day without the need to change batteries. The grip really gives a solid hand on the camera when shooting vertically, and owing to this grip, I appreciate that my camera is so easily handled in any orientation. I've programmed and reprogrammed the two function buttons to suit my shooting experience, and find all the buttons are easily found by touch without removing the camera from my eye.
While I also have the OM-D E-M1, I will purchase the OM-D E-M5 MkII in just a couple months. I am elated that I can use this same battery grip with the MkII, how cool is THAT!? Thank you Olympus for the consideration to you existing customers in the OM-D line.
