Sony Introduces New VCT-SGR1 Shooting Grip for RX0 and RX100 Series Cameras

Versatile New Grip Offers Free-Angle Shooting and Fingertip Control


NEW YORK, June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 camerasi.

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 zoomii 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.
