  1. Hi everyone, this week-end, I had the chance to test out a production proof of the Thumbs Up EP-SQ grip for the Leica Q. I can honestly say that this is a great ergonomic addition to the already fantastic camera, adding that little extra bit of purchase that makes MatchTechnical's Thumbs Up grips so popular. The added benefit of this Thumbs Up is that its design limits inadvertently bumping the Diopter adjustment dial, which often does go out of whack without protection. Once again, you lose the hotshoe, but with the Q's ISO capacities, a flash is rarely needed. Another successful design. As an owner of the Thumbs Up Grips for the Leica M8, M9, M240, M246, and X1, I can confidently say that that Thumbs Up EP-SQ does much of the same for the Leica Q as it does for those cameras....it adds a nice secure grip if one feels that they require more than the camera's own offering or as an alternative/addition to the Leica hand grip. Here are a few pictures that I have taken.
  2. Nice accessory as expected. Well made, unobtrusive, the black version (not sure if there is a silver one) of the Thumb Support for digital CL has the good taste to hide the flashy "Leica Camera Wetzlar Germany" engravings of the body to replace it by the same with no white paint on it. The Thumb Support is also efficient in the first place in that the CL is significantly less slippery with it. This way the camera can be shot single hand if needed and i don't have the feeling that the camera will drop if i forget to use a strap anymore. Problem is the Thumb Support gets in the way of the right dial, which was to be expected, but it gets in the way of the left dial as well. Not to say that the left dial is impossible to use this way but the thumb reaches it less easily when the Thumb Support is attached, so much so that pressing the shutter release while turning the left dial requires too much dexterity for me. I prefer this to using a camera as slippery as a soap bar at the end of the day but well designed Thumbs Up or Thumbie will do better hopefully.
