As mentioned in a previous post I love my sony A77 with my only reservation being battery life. I'm not a fan off battery grips, I find them too bulky and make the camera too heavy and at over £200 there not cheap. Don't get me wrong if I liked shooting with a grip I would pay the money, I do shoot some weddings and I feel that is the only time I would use a grip, the two batteries will last all day (will have a spare just in case) and you do shoot a fair bit in portrait mode which is the other area that grips come in handy with a second shutter button.
So with my first wedding of 2013 only eight weeks away a battery grip has been ordered so I will have time to get my self familiar with it.
Welcome to my blog. My photography is on a tight budget like so many others out there, but through this blog I hope to show that great photographs can be achieved by all.
