Sony Announce New Shooting Grip With Wireless Remote Commander: Sony shooting grip

Sony has announced a new shooting grip, featuring Bluetooth wireless remote control capability. The GP-VPT2BT features a zoom control, and the ability to take movies or stills by pressing a button with your thumb. 

The device reminds us of the Benro 3XS Lite, with a control panel and wireless shooting functionality, but primarily aimed at Sony camera users. Cameras such as the Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 VII compact would be ideal candidates to use the grip with. 


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.

The shooting grip doubles as a small tripod, allowing you to place the grip on a surface and use it to vlog with. There's an adjustment wheel allowing the grip to adapt to cameras of different sizes and weights, and you can also flip between seflie taking and shooting normally with the touch of a button.

There's also a customisable button and lock switch on the control panel. Sony say it's moisture resistant, allowing you to use it in difficult weather conditions.

The GP-VPT2BT will be available from February in Europe, priced at £170 (200 Euros).
