If you’re privy to the world of vlogging and travel videography, you know that the vast majority of run-and-gun content creators rely on an improvised version of the “selfie stick” to capture shots. Whether they’re talking directly to the camera, or setting up their rig for a time-lapse, the importance of an adaptable hand-held peripheral can sometimes be an afterthought — but now, Sony has decided to create a device to fulfill that role with the GP-VPT2BT Wireless Shooting Grip.

The Sony GP-VPT2BT is an interesting unison of high-tech battery grip ergonomics and the industry’s tamer portable hand-held setups. The device acts as a Bluetooth-enabled “commander” for your Sony-based mirrorless camera, allowing you to transition from photo to video capture at the touch of a button and provide enhanced stability, while also giving you access to movie recording, zoom, angle adjustment, and camera flip within the same, all-encompassing handle. The GP is also dust-resistant, and moisture-resistant, meaning that you’ll have peace-of-mind while capturing those exploratory shots — even in unexpected weather. And don’t worry, the wireless grip can even transform into a stable tripod layout for more versatile use. Head to Sony’s website, where the GP-VPT2BT will be available within the coming week for $140, to learn more.
