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.
Wattloewe posted a topic in Leica QHallo, im englischsprachigen Leica-Q-Forum bin ich auf die neuen Thumbs Up EP-SQ für die Leica Q aufmerksam geworden (http://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/248036-thumbs-up-ep-sq-grip-for-the-leica-q/). Dort ist auch schon viel darüber diskutiert worden. Mir geht es hier nur um die Frage, ob dieses Zubehör schon in irgendeinem Leica Store (oder anderswo) in Deutschland erhältlich ist, möglichst online! Danke für entsprechende Hinweise.
MatchTechnical and Tim Isaac have given me the privilege of testing a prototype of the Thumbs Up EP-SL grip for the SL camera. I am a huge fan of MatchTechnical's designs, which have adorned each of my Leica cameras since the M8. I believe that the EP-SL is another great design that will add to hand holding stability of the camera, in particular with larger lenses (SL and R lenses). Below are a few pictures. The grip should be available in a few weeks, from what I have been told....
