Well, besides probably having too much ADHD to do anything for 4 hours....

That's really what I am asking. Without ever trying a grip, it does not seem like it is more effort holding a camera in portrait mode than landscape. So is that the big win? It's more comfortable to hold for long periods in portrait mode (despite the added weight)?

Oh, for the days of good local camera stores, where one could try things out....
