Thumbs Up

Recommended Posts

Vinay - Good joke. Maybe your best one yet. There is another viewpoint whereby Leica were heading for the walls of bankruptcy serving the pointless obsessions of the wretched display cabinet brigade. Thank heavens they realised just in time that the company worked most effectively as a maker of fine equipment to be used by photographers rather than as a production line for whimsical trinket collectors.

This thread has been some of the best advertising Tim could ever hope for. As a result of what several others have said about the TU, I ordered one and received it a few days ago. It dramatically improves the ergonomics of the M8 and will be a regular fixture on mine.

Can anyone tell me if there is any worry of scratching from the TU?

 

No.

 

I've recently exchanged my original Thumbs-Up for the new Thumbs-Up CS (cold shoe version). I can assuredly say that this latest variant of the device is not so much an accessory as an essential component of the M8. It integrates with it unobtrusively, it does no harm (scratches or otherwise) and it improves the handling so much, that on using the camera without it, everything feels awkward and unwieldy once more.

 

You can safely invest and you won't regret it.

I had the opportunity to meet and have coffee with Tim last year when Robert White was visiting the Pacific Northwest from the UK. At that time Tim provided me with the TU CSEP-4 and his BIP shutter release button. The CSEP-4 has a very thick felt pad that rests on top of the M8 body which compresses providing protection from scratching etc.

As you can see the TU has a nice patina from regular use. Not having a hot shoe has not been a problem as I seldom use a flash. The ability to mount the spirit level along side with the viewfinder is invaluable for shooting architecture.
