    Looks pretty cool. Presumably hot swappable with batteries

    YUP....just made a LOT of sweet cages obsolete. Looks like a great solution though to keep the camera portable without a complete rig and the cords that go with such a rig. I'm really enjoying my small rig cage and SSD handle. Hopefully, they'll jump on a new cage to accommodate the battery grip.

    I got 1hour with LP-E6. And will get two hours with this thing for 250 Bucks?!
    IMHO this camera needs a cage to mount a second monitor or some rails and follow focus or whatever.

    And with a cage I can also buy a dummy battery and NP-F plate and stick a NP-F 970 somewhere.
    JIt is nice to have an option. But I pass.

    A cage is pretty much critical for regualr use with this camera. and swapping out small hour long batteries even on a tripod is as easy as it gets.

    This battery grip is for specialized use by comparison. And as you say, when you need longer continuous power there are lot's of affordable options - for a cage.

    Just bought an external power pack which is now redundant.
    Now I need to cancel the tilta cage.
    Any guess how long the power will last?

    Looks good. Between this and braw I think I will be shooting this camera with SD cards and just the grip to keep it compact.

    Real world 2hrs? How does Sony NP-570 compare with Canon LP-E6?

    $245 I bet some gear manufacturers are kicking themselves.

    $245 I bet some gear manufacturers are kicking themselves.

    On my tests with different batteries I have, the NP550 which is 2200mah lasts as follows;

    FW 5.2/6.0 : 56 min
    FW 6.1 : 74 min
    FW 6.2.1 : 71 min

    So if this grip uses the 550/570 type battery then you get roughly double these times.

    I use a dummy to NPF plate which can give me up to 213 min with a single NPF 970.
