You work for Lazada? No, I don't want to install your app. Thanks.
??? Link seemed innocent to me (opened fine on iPhone with no requirement to install any app).
Pros
  • Looks solid and seems to give better clearance between grip and lens than others I’ve seen.
  • Arca compatible
  • Mounting screw thread for any baseplate mounted straps etc you might use.
  • Battery door remains accessible
Neutral
  • Grip attaches with a coin screw rather than hex (depends on your preference here I guess).
Cons
  • Unknown brand?
Looks like a winner to me if the price is right (I’m not familiar with the currency).

It is not an app, it is a website

It's around 38 US$. It has warranty as well.

I'm not sure I need a grip on the EM5/2, Mike. But, I said that about the EM10/2 as well. I finally succumbed and am so pleased I did. Just because a grip's budget, it doesn't make it no good. I bought this one, all the body services are easily accessed and available and the Arca Swiss type 90 degree slot around the bracket is so handy. No more fumbling fitting a shoe.

Never had a problem with lazada all those years I buy from them.

I am not sure if the grip improves the handling of the camera.

On my em10 ii was perfect habdling

Link opens fine for me.
My main concern is the grip looks very angular compared to the more rounded grips normally seen
