BG-5 Battery Grip

Optional BG-5 Battery Grip

If you need more power in the field, go for the optional BG-5 battery grip. The perfect match for the K-3, it accepts a standard lithium-ion rechargeable battery or six AA-sized batteries. Not only does this double your shooting time, the grip provides a vertical release and exposure control and the same dustproof, weather-resistant construction as the K-3 body.
