    The shooting grip can also be used as a mini tripod, which makes it even more useful for livestreaming.
    When using the grip as a tripod, make sure that the total weight of the camera and lens does not exceed 1.5 kg.
    Note that when the grip is used as a tripod, it may tip forward even if the load is within the maximum weight limit, depending on the lens and conditions of use.
