Metro Case announced a pair of lightweight grips with built-in Arca-style quick release for Sony a6000, a6300 and a6500 mirrorless cameras.
AUSTIN â€” March 27, 2017 â€” Metro Case today announced two lightweight grips with Arca-style quick release for Sony a6000, a6300 and a6500 digital cameras. The Metro Case MC6000 and MC6500 grips greatly improve handling, providing increased gripping area for a more confident and relaxed feel.
These Sony cameras feature very compact bodies, but the short camera height compromises comfort and handling, often resulting in hand cramps because itâ€™s difficult to comfortably grip the camera especially when using larger or longer lenses. The height extension offered by the grips provide support for the pinky finger. An Arca-style quick release is built-in, yet the entire grip weighs only 43g (1.5oz), an almost imperceptible increase.
“The new Metro Case grips for the Sony a6300/a6500 are just fantastic. They feel great in the hand and add very little weight while maintaining a rigid connection to the camera. I simply can’t go back to holding the a6500 without the Metro Case.â€ – Sony Artisan Chad Wadsworth
