Thumb grip...at last a good one!


Recommended Posts

I use the Leica grip and finger loop and for the extra bit of security, I wanted a thumb grip....I baulked at the prices and tried a chinese one...well it didn't fit as clearly designed for the Q and not Q2.

Thankfully the seller told me he was sending a proper Q2 one.....it has just arrived and WOW...perfect and $20 !   even easy to reach the crop button   

they appear regularly on amazon under the JJC brand but make surw it is the TA-Q2 version....here is mine!    

 

ok ok its not 'hand crafted in wetzlar' but it works perfectly for me as does the wee bit of sticky velcro on the lenscap to stop it falling offf.......these beasties are for using, not babying!

Maybe so Jaap but I never use flash and unlike some other cheap ones , it is a good fit in the hotshoe without any securing grub screws etc 

surely all the thumbs up, match technical and even leica ones are the same

I used the original Leica thumb rest for a long time (and partly the original grip with loop), but in the meantime I do without it completely. My Half Case from Artisan& Artist gives me enough grip and my camera is smaller and lighter. 

For the Q1 I only used a thumb rest so that the diopter correction does not alter. But with the Q2 that is no longer necessary.

Indeed they are, reason I use a Thumbie on my cameras.

Hello,
I have also been using the JJC Ta-Q2 (25 €) for several months after using the Leica TU (200 €) and I am completely satisfied with it.
The price is very poor and the quality almost equivalent (Aluminium) 
Using the button (exposure memo for me) is even easier and more comfortable than with the original Leica TU.
As for the hot shoe, I don't use a flash, so ...no problem ...

I just received the latest model from TU MATCH TECHNICAL for Leica Q2 (Ref EP-LQ2). 
It is a model identical to that intended for the Leica Q (EP-SQ), with the difference that it is cut out for easier access to the control button. 
After a test, I can confirm that it is very comfortable and really facilitates the handling of the case. 
So far this is the best I have ever used

I just picked up the JJC thanks to recommendations here.  For the price, I think it would be hard to beat. It fits well, has button access, and looks solid. I will say that it has a harder, sharper edge that is still throwing me as the Q2 has otherwise been all curves in my hands.  It's jumping out on me the first day, but will likely recede with time (and....$30).  Thanks for shining a light on it and saving me some money.
