The Vertical Power Booster Grip VPB-XT2 can fit two batteries to boost the maximum number of shots per charge to approx. 1,000*. It not only lets you hold the camera vertically more confidently, but also features a shutter release button, Q button, focus lever, command dials, AE-L button and more to maintain the same level of excellent operability during shooting. The grip features a tripod mounting socket in line with the camera’s optical axis, and is resistant to dust and water. The grip itself has battery-charging functionality, and is capable of fully charging two batteries in two hours.
The FUJIFILM X-T2 is the first camera to feature the Boost mode, improving AF speed and EVF refresh rate. When fitted with the grip, the camera uses multiple batteries simultaneously to improve its performance on various aspects in the Boost mode, including continuous shooting, shooting interval, shutter release time lag and blackout time.
