The Olympus HLD-7 HLD-7 Power Battery Holder is a vertical grip for the OM-D E-M1.  The HLD-7 offers additional comfort and flexibility via an extra set of main camera controls that allows shooting vertical images from a more stable stance and it counterbalances larger lenses well too.  The HLD-7 also adds more power from a spare BLN-1 battery or AC-3 AC Adapter for extended shooting time without interruptions.

The HLD-7 has a set of controls oriented for vertical shooting.  The grip features it's own: shutter release button, 'B-FN1' button, 'B-FN2' button, front control dial, and rear control dial.  These portrait orientation optimized controls allow the photographer to take vertical images with their right arm and hand in a more natural comfortable position (not overhand or underhand).

If you ever use a longer lens handheld the MB-D11 is an especially handy accessory for your EM-1.  To further optimize the handling when working with the HLD-7, a special optional grip strap (GS-5) is available.  For long periods of continuous shooting the AC-3 AC Adapter is a perfect additional accessory.

The extra mass of the MB-D11 helps resist vibration while also shifting the camera & lens combination center of balance closer to the photographer thus making it easier to hold still.  Photographers with larger hands will find the additional grip area a welcome improvement to camera body ergonomics.

The HLD-7 is easy to add or remove quickly.  All you have to do is remove the connection port cover on the bottom of the EM-1 and screw the grip into the camera's tripod socket.  The grip also has built-in storage space for the camera port cover to keep it from getting lost.
