Shouldn't take long for a 3rd party version of that thing to come out. Was hoping it would fit 2 batteries.

Is the battery door on the bottom of the RP? Because that thing doesn't look like it would let you change the battery.

The icon printed on the top looks like an SD card or battery.

Yeah I dont get it. Either they are telling you how the grip is being positioned or there's a secret inside this extension grip.

Maybe those holes are where the electronics connect. And this extension grip is a external battery, extra SD card slot and a tiny magical unicorn all in one.

Looks like some kind of electrical connection on one side of the grip. Could be a thin bty, or maybe a second shutter release button for verticals?

To me and I hope I am wrong...I think this is just a grip with no added electrical features....no dual batteries nada...it's just a grip extension for people with big hands

You are probably right.

It looks like there's a lever at the back to open the card and battery slot. So I'm assuming that one has to remove the RP1's battery cover and this grip replaces it. Pull the lever on the back and it opens the grip panel and lets the battery / card drop through the grip. It's a neat design although it offers a very basic function.

OK seriously though. I've thought for a long while it would be nice to have something that bolts to the bottom of a camera like an L-bracket does, except made of some rubber-like material. I don't ALWAYS have a bag to drop the camera into and very often find myself lowering the camera gingerly to a table top. Cameras used to have leather cases, this would provide that little bit of 'give' beneath without covering up controls….

It looks more like an outline of a battery and a guide to which orientation it would fit. You had my hopes up but it seems only one extra battery too.

Red grip makes sense as a fashion statement.

A real vertical battery grip would be nice to have, though.
