Equipped with a shutter release button, twin command dials, AE-L button, AF-L button and Focus Assist button, the Fujifilm VG-XT1 Vertical Battery Grip not only lets you hold the FUJIFILM X-T1 vertically with a more confident grip, but also puts all the controls where your fingers expect them to be. The tripod mounting socket is located in line with the camera's optical axis, just like on the regular body. In addition to comfortable shooting, the vertical grip also holds an auxiliary battery (NP-W126). Combined with the rechargeable battery in the body, the battery in the dust- and water-resistant vertical grip provides enough charge for approximately 700 frames.

I really like my Fuji XT-1, but it's compact size makes it hard to hold and access controls for anyone with normal size hands. And the batteries do drain much more quickly than they do in my DSLR. This gives you a comfortable grip, extra batter, and vertical controls. Any professional shooting with an XT-1 will definitely want to get one of these. It's a must have.
