I’ve been mulling over the « problem » of battery grips, buttons, etc. etc.
The basic problem, up until recently, has been that for battery grips to have duplicate controls (from the camera body) there have to match up to a series of contacts on the baseplate of the camera….
The recent battery pack for the Nikon Z series is just that – a battery pack, as there are no contacts on the baseplate of the camera to allow activation of the control circuitry in the camera from controls on the grip.
What if you didn’t need contacts?
What if it were all done by….BLUETOOTH?
I feel sure I’m not the first to come up with this stunning solution…but I’m going to pretend I was!
Excuse me while I pen an e-mail to NIKON UK……
