Grip

The grip is humongous but comfortable, and the top controls look oddly featureless. Excluding the grip, the body is actually rather thin. There's a small record button and a large adjustment/select jog dial, plus a rather hard-to-press power button.

Battery compartment

The huge 4,360mAh battery is necessary to support the large LCD and electronic viewfinder, as well as all the extra draw from the image-processing subsystem. The camera takes microSD cards and has a SIM slot.
