do you prefer shooting with or without a battery grip on NX1

Recommended Posts

Loving my NX1......but I find it very "light" in my hands.....use to my heavier canon cam (w/battery grip) just wanted to see if people felt the same way....and would you recommend the battery grip. I prefer the extra weight...and would/does the grip make a substantial difference weight wise?

I'm always torn between using the battery grip with my NX1. When I first held the NX1 without the battery grip I loved how it felt in my medium-large sized hands, though there was a part of my hand (the pinky side) that wasn't touching the camera. When I bought battery grip my entire hand was on the grip and it felt perfect. It also added some weight and stability (also, easy portrait mode). I thought, "I'm never taking the battery grip off." I just couldn't see myself using the camera comfortably without it. After a while I started wondering if maybe there are times when I should be shooting without the battery grip attached (want to be unnoticed, street shots, traveling, etc.). I wondered if people are actually affected by seeing a big camera (with the grip attached) as apposed to without it in public. To be honest I'm still not sure! There are trade-offs. Weight, portability, stealth vs. stability, double battery life, more comfortable grip. 

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What if you adjust your hand, so it is less angled compared to the camera. Does the pinky still hang? A bit like that :

It's not my actual pinky that hangs, but the palm below the pinky.
