OM-D + HLD-6 = A Very Good Start

LW, Crutchfield
23 July 2013
  • Summary: The HLD-6 is the ideal accessory for the OM-D as it facilitates holding/operating the camera while providing access to a reserve battery. After experiencing the convenience of using the OM System Winder 2 with my OM-1, I knew how important the HLD-6 would be for my enjoyment of the OM-D.
  • Pros: The HLD-6 is a well-designed accessory that will enhance the use and enjoyment of the OM-D.
  • Cons: The cost of the unit can be significant, especially if considered in combination with the purchase of the OM-D and/or additional lenses.

Olympus HLD-6

MattC, Crutchfield
26 November 2012
  • Summary: For several weeks I have been using the first part that extends the grip and adds an additional shutter button and sub dial. I use these all the time instead of the one on the camera. I think it makes the camera much more convenient and secure to hold.
  • Pros: Works great. Makes the camera easier to hold, better feel.
  • Cons: Great addition other than the price is more than it should be. Price is only reason I did not give it 5 stars. 1/3rd the price of a replacement body is too much.

Get a Grip!

Alec [@], WEX
6 November 2012
  • Summary: The HLD-6 offers great value for money and great flexibility too. Being in two parts, I find I use the 'first' section the most - it gives a little extra grip and is ideal to hold when out and about doing street photography.It doesn't add too much bulk either, and the unit has been very well made.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Improves Product Function, Lightweight

  • Summary: This grip really does add to the Olympus OMD experience.It makes the camera so much easier to handle with added portrait shooting dials and extra function buttons. I just keep one battery in the lower part its easier to change just the one.Its well made and fits together really well and doesnt add...
