(UPDATED with translation) New battery grip for Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras

Share

The Chinese company “Ownuser” made a battery grip for all Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras except the GF1/GF2. Sadly the only info we got has been posted as an image with Chinese text so I cannot translate it with the help of the google translation tool. Some Chinese 43rumors readers can send us a summary of all the key features of the battery grip? What I can understand from the images is that they have three different grips and that there is also some kind of IR transmitter. The person that send me that news told me that they have made 1.500 of those items.

This is the website of the company with the battery grip page: http://www.ownuser.com.tw/mig_pg2.html
This are the Ownuser products on eBay (Click here) (didn’t find the battery grip…or is it there somewhere? I found the battery grip for Olympus cameras instead)

UPDATE: 43rumors reader “Kolen” translated the chinese text (Hurray for Kolen!)
