This power battery holder features an IP53 dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof design, offering the same controls in vertical and horizontal positions.
It has the same IP53 dustproof and splashproof performance as the OM-1 when attached to the camera body. This accessory can be attached and removed when necessary, such as using the camera body to maintain mobility or with HLD-10 attached when frequently switching the vertical/horizontal position or taking many shots.
When two batteries, in the camera and the HLD-10, are used together, approximately 1,000 shots (based on CIPA tests) can be captured. When HLD-10 is attached, an optional GS-5 Grip Strap can be used.
When attached to the OM-1*, the BLX-1 battery can be charged inside HLD-10.
Cannot charge BLX-1 in HLD-10 when not attached to the camera.
