With the GP-VPT2BT, Sony introduces a recording handle that can be wirelessly connected via Bluetooth to a range of current Sony Alpha models. The Vlogging Handle allows both photo and video functions of the camera to be controlled via separate buttons.
Compatible models include: Alpha 9 II, Alpha 9, Alpha 7R IV, Alpha 7R III, Alpha 7 III, Alpha 6600, Alpha 6400, Alpha 6100, RX100 VII and RX0 II.
The handle can also be turned for selfies and can also be used as a mini tripod.
Here also the corresponding promotion video:
However, the handle does not include a monitor function. Thus, those who want to frame themselves in a controlled way in selfies without a swiveling camera monitor should also think about a monitor solution in case the respective Sony model does not have such a monitor on board.
For this we would think of a coupling with a mobile phone as a monitor but then the next question is not far away: Why not use the mobile phone for the selfie ...
But anyway: The Sony recording handle GP-VPT2BT is to be available starting from February 2020 to a UVP. of 199, - euro.
