STC Fogrip [Folding Grip] for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Revealed

Simon Skinner - 3 months ago

STC has revealed the latest member of their growing folding grip lineup, the ‘FoGrips’. This one is for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III camera and promises to provide greater stability and significant benefits with weight distribution.

STC’s latest announcement arrives for photographers and filmmakers shooting with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III camera and follows quickly after the recent announcement of the STC Fogrip for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III and Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II cameras.

The new FoGrip arrives in six different colour options, (leather and metal) and the tough build and smart fold-away design are perfect for travel, not that there’s going to be much of that going on for a while! The grip’s fold-away function allows the camera to sit completely flat when not in use and when folded into action, allows the user to comfortably shoot with just one hand.

Constructed from tough, yet light 6061 aerospace-grade aluminium alloy, the new FoGrip only adds 83g to the camera when attached. The clever design also means that you can also easily access the camera’s battery door without removing the grip. Moreover, it’s completely compatible with both quick-release plates and L-Brackets allowing for easy transfer and use tripods.

STC’s new Fogrip for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III promises to give users a 25% more grip when shooting handheld, making it easier to shoot for longer periods, giving added stability to support when shooting with bigger lenses.

Pricing and availability

The new STC FoGrip for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is available now and comes in at £99.99. See more here.
