Sony Introduces New VCT-SGR1 Shooting Grip For RX0 And RX100 Series Cameras

The versatile and compact new Shooting Grip for their RX0 and RX100 series of cameras. Vloggers and filmmakers will welcome the powerful new accessory.

Versatile New Grip Offers Free-Angle Shooting and Fingertip Control

NEW YORK, Jun. 5, 2018 – Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, has today announced the VCT-SGR1, a versatile and compact new Shooting Grip best suited for their RX0 and RX100 series of cameras.

Ideal for vlogging, travel photography, self-portraits and much more, the new VCT-SGR1 is a vertically-oriented shooting grip that attaches to Sony’s RX0 and RX100 series of camerasi via Multi/Micro USB Terminal. It is extremely compact and lightweight, and can adjust angles up 70 degrees or down to 100 degrees to capture different perspectives including high-angle shots, low-angle shots and self-portraits. The grip features several buttons at the top of the grip including shutter release, REC stop/start and zoom functionality, allowing for easy fingertip control for both right and left handed usage. Additionally, the bottom of the grip can be spread-out and used as a tripod, making it an ideal accessory for group photos or low-light shooting conditions to avoid camera shake when shooting at slower shutter speeds.

The new VCT-SGR1 Shooting Grip will ship this September in North America, priced at approximately $100 US or $130 CA.
