Grip and Multifunctional Grip - Chrome version?!

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Why no silver version of the Grips... Neither the normal or multifunctional grip come in silver chrome like my M is.

I would also be willing to buy a silver one if it would be available.

 

On the other hand, I may change to a black version of the camera later - I find that I like the black one getting some signs of use quickly and the brassing :-)

Is there a grip for the M240 other than the $895 USD grip with GPS capability?? I can't find a Leica grip for sale anywhere other than the GPS "smart" grip.

 

What is the Leica part # for the non-GPS grip in black?

Here's the link to the Leica website for the regular handgrip: Leica Camera AG - Photography - HANDGRIP M

imperfiction,

Thanks, I had not been able to find that grip.

 

Hmmm, so if a person wants a grip for the M240 other than the GPS "smart" grip, their choices are this oe for $300 USD

Leica Handgrip M 14496 B&H Photo Video - or a Luigi half case with a leather covered grip for $350 USD.

 

JMHO, but it seems like the Luigi half case with the built in grip may be a better deal (I know, I know - "horses for courses")...

There are several other cases with grips and other grip choices as well.

RRS also makes a grip/base plate/L bracket setup for the M240 for $250. Well made, but if you never use a tripod could be less than ideal for you.

      Does anyone have any Thumbs Up type of solutions that work well on the X Vario? That beautiful, heavy lens out front is leaving me with the desire for a bit more grip for my thumb. I already own the hand grip and I have a finger loop on the way, but nothing beats a thumbs up, at least in my experience. Open to any and all suggestions though - thanks.

      I've tested several strap and grip combinations for carrying the Q around in shooting-ready mode:
       
      - the neck strap which comes with the camera
      - Leica grip and neck strap
      - Gordy's sling attached to either the tripod mount or the side slug and worn diagonally across body
      - Gordy's wrist strap only attached to the side slug
      - Thumbs Up grip with neck strap
      - Leica grip and Thumbs Up simultaneously with neck strap
       
       
      but for me the best solution has been the Gordy's wrist strap attached to the tripod mount in combination with the Thumbs Up -grip.
       
      With this combination I can hang the camera vertically when walking and the strap is tight enough so I can raise the camera to horizontal, or on eye level, instantly, with one hand without having to change the hand position at all.
       
      Maybe this is useful to some of you

      Does anyone make one? I've trawled through these threads and the wider interwebs and it would seem not. Unless anyone here knows better?

      To my new Q I've added the LIM's half case with grip, which is, in one unit, equivalent to the Leica Q grip and the Leica half case, minus the screw hole for the Leica finger grip.  Cost around $100.   Excellent workmanship, no shortcomings at all.  They have a deluxe model that integrates a very trim Arca-style plate into the bottom.

      Hi,
       
      The R8 I purchased on eBay came with the motor and that's great. I would, however, like to get the standard battery compartment for the R8 for times when I don't want the extra weight.
       
      Can anyone recommend a source for this part? I have been in touch with Dave Elwell of Leica Camera in NJ and he says there are no such parts in stock in the US or Germany.
       
      Thanks in advance,
