Re: Karma Grip disable camera charging

[ Edited ]

Hello @tomor57

 

I appreciate you pointing it out. Apologies for the confusion. My question is supposed to be for an issue involving camera and Grip not recognizing each other - and removing battery as a step to further isolate the source of trouble. I see now that this thread is for the feature of disabling the charging of camera while in the Grip. And yes, we have provided this as a feed back to the team. You may want to drop a line here as well. 

 

Best regards, 
Marius
