    I have the Olympus OMD EM-5 with the grip. I usually use only the landscape part of the grip- but today I added the vertical (portrait) grip. None of the additional dials or buttons (including shutter button) on the portrait grip work. They work fine on the landscape grip. I only have 1 battery. I tried using it the camera and the grip. No difference. Do I need a second battery for the buttons to work, or do I have a defective grip?
    Thanks, MJL

    I presume you haven't locked the button grips with the little lock mechanism?

    I did. I thought that mechanism locked the screw to lock the grip on. Thanks. ;)

    Not immediately obvious is it. Fortunately I read the tiny 'manual' first or I'd have thought the same.

    Glad it's sorted.
