Now available: Super-Light Grips for Sony A6000, A6300, A6500

AUSTIN —March 27, 2017 — Metro Case today announced two lightweight grips with Arca-style quick release for Sony A6000, A6300, and A6500 digital cameras. 

The Metro Case MC6000 and MC6500 grips greatly improve handling, providing increased gripping area for a more confident and relaxed feel.

These Sony cameras feature very compact bodies, but the short camera height compromises comfort and handling, often resulting in hand cramps because it’s difficult to comfortably grip the camera especially when using larger or longer lenses. The height extension offered by the grips provide support for the pinky finger.

An Arca-style quick release is built-in, yet the entire grip weighs only 43g (1.5oz), an almost imperceptible increase.

"The new Metro Case grips for the Sony a6300/a6500 are just fantastic. They feel great in the hand and add very little weight while maintaining a rigid connection to the camera. I simply can't go back to holding the a6500 without the Metro Case.” - Sony Artisan Photographer Chad Wadsworth
