STC Unveils Folding Grip Solution

News Image
STC has announced an all-new folding grip solution for the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III and Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II cameras, delivering greater stability and immediate benefit with weight distribution when using medium-to-large lenses for the dedicated Olympus user community.

STC continues to produce ground-breaking innovations for photographers and videographers the world over and their latest product announcement has been designed specifically for the loyal league of Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera users. The new grip, which is compatible with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III and Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II cameras, follows quickly from the recent revelation of the STC Fogrip for the Sony α7/α9series.

After almost two years of development to ensure its performance, solid build and clever fold-away design, the new grip is certain to quickly become an indispensable partner for Olympus shooters everywhere. Perfect for the travelling photographer, the grip’s clever design and fold-away function enable the camera to sit completely flat when not in use and allows the user to comfortably shoot with just a single hand.

The whole unit has been constructed from extremely tough, yet light 6061 aerospace-level aluminium alloy, which adds just 78g to the camera when attached. Users can keep shooting by easily accessing the camera battery door without removing the grip. Furthermore, ultimate compatibility is assured with both quick-release plates and L-Brackets and the anodized frame, which comes in Olympus-Blue and matt black will give users protection for both the camera and hand-grip.

Olympus, pioneers within the Micro Four Thirds format, has long been renowned for producing cameras which are smaller and lighter than their DSLR counterparts. That said, even small camera bodies can start to feel heavy after shooting for hours on end, or when using large lenses. STC’s new Fogrip for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III & II addresses this issue by giving users 25% more grip when shooting handheld, making it easier to shoot for longer periods of time and added stability to support lens weight. Furthermore, the new Fogrip for Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III & II is compatible with quick-release plates and L-Brackets, allowing for easy transfer and use tripods, along with unobstructed, effortless access to the battery door without the need to remove the grip. STC has produced an optional adonized L-Bracket in Olympus Blue, as well as Standard Black colourways.

William Wu, CEO and Lead Design Engineer, STC, said: "Our latest FoGrip solution has been developed specifically for the legion of users shooting with the popular Olympus OM-D E-M1 cameras. As the FoGrip is compatible with both the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III and II, we are certain that it will provide a useful and practical solution for those shooting for long periods and with heavier lenses. We see this model as a perfect example of a small-yet-powerful camera whose users will benefit from additional stabilisation when using the camera hand-held. We are very excited to see how this new and innovative product will be received by the Olympus community."
