I bought a 3rd party grip with a second vertical shutter button. It also holds two batteries. I would imagine a 3rd party grip will be available soon for the R7.

Hope so.

I'm doubting it. Apparently the width of the R7 body is not enough for 2 batteries end to end, which negates a battery grip being produced. Also, there is a definitive photo in the thread that clearly shows there are no contacts that would allow for controls on a grip to operate the camera.

You could probably do the controls via Bluetooth if the firmware allowed. A shutter button would be easy and already possible.
