In descending order of importance:
- vertical buttons
- faster frame rate
- larger camera to hold (big hands)
- longer battery usage

When I want a smaller body, I can remove the grip.

The grips do not require batteries to work the buttons, so I can save on weight when I don't need the faster frame rate.
