Olympus ECG-3 Grip for E-M10 Mark II
Offering a larger, easier to hold grip, the Olympus ECG-3 Grip for E-M10 Mark II camera is a simple accessory to improve your handling while shooting. The leatherette finish matches the E-M10 Mark II body design, and with its high‑quality, robust metal construction, this larger grip ensures even clearer and sharper images.
Once attached to your E‑M10 Mark II, the grip’s ingenious design gives you instant access to the battery compartment ‑ without having to unscrew the grip leading to shorter interruptions whilst shooting. It also sports a quick shoe rail feature which allows one‑touch mounting to compatible tripods and other mounting devices. Removing the camera is of course, just as quick!
Olympus ECG-3 Grip for E-M10 Mark II specs:
“It didn’t take very long (about a month) after I started using my new E-M10 Mark II before I realized the ECG-3 was going to be a must-have accessory. I am a man with average-sized hands, and I simply could not grip the camera securely without this accessory. I also have carpal tunnel syndrome, and “pinching” the camera with two fingers and a thumb wasn’t going to work for me. If you have smaller hands you probably won’t feel the same way. Now as to the fit, feel and function with the accessory grip attached: Essentially now it FEELS as though you are holding a full-size DSLR, but the camera is still smaller, even with the grip. It does noticeably change the height of the camera (about 1/2″), and the depth is slightly enlarged without a lens attached. However if (like me), you tend to leave a lens on it (any lens, really), the depth will not change in terms of fitting it into a bag or pouch. The height will. The fit and finish of the ECG-3 is excellent. The two-piece design fits very tightly and securely, yet allows quick and easy (if somewhat awkward and definitely two-handed) access to the battery/SD compartment. How often are you actually taking out the battery? Unless you are shooting all day, probably not at all until you get home. When you do, you can simply (with a sliding lever), disengage the removable part and you are there. Aesthetically it integrates with the camera seamlessly, to the point of being almost invisible to the eye (once you are used to the taller profile of the camera with it on). Very nice there. So functionally, this is pretty much a 5-star product in my opinion. Bottom line: If you are buying an E-M10 Mk II, by all means try the camera first without the accessory grip. However if your hands are relatively large, or you are used to shooting with a larger camera, you can pretty well bet you are going to be happier overall with this grip. I am.” –
