love it

Love the GH3 and this just makes it better. The 2 batty combo had not drained a a shoot yet, barely got into the body battery. Adds nice feel to the cam.

Don't buy for video follow focus

I purchased the BG for the extra battery life during our production day. Great idea, bad execution. 1: 1/4-20 screw is off centered. 2: We cannot center the lens into the matt box. 3: The BG does not attach firmly enough to the camera body. 4: When we spin the follow focus wheel, the camera body moves up and away from the BG. This effect is seem in every shot we used the follow focus. 5: Problem solved. We got rid of the BG.

OK

This is a fine product and works very well for still photography. The tripod mount is off center and it can't be used when setting up a video rig.

Nice fit

By

I have used the grip only once. It really made a big difference for me. I have longer fingers and it made holding the camera really comfortable. I'm use to shooting a heavy camera. Even though the GH3 isn't that heavy to me, this grip made things balance out quite well.

Perfection addition to the GH3

By

from La Canada, California  -  Photo Enthusiast

A must-have for the GH3 owner. But dig deep into your wallet, because battery-not-included. (Okay, I admit I planned to purchase a 2nd battery, anyway.) The added bulk does not bother me whatsoever, since the weight gain is negligible. Panasonic should consider building this accessory into their other models. Would've loved this on my G2 and GF2.

Only little drawback is that the tripod screw mount if off-centered.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this grip also work on a G5 camera?
FRED C  No, it only mates to the GH3.
Marti O  Thanks Fred for your response.
Shopper  Does the grip come with a battery included?
GREG H  No, the battery pack connects to the base of the GH3 so you basically already have a built in grip as the GH3 has a grip on the body....same as many Canon models...works nicely.
