Very Bad Ergonomics, not good enough for such a beautiful camera...
on 19 March 2015
It's very well made and attaches solidly, but it sits on the camera like an ill designed hump. It doesn't follow the lines of the camera, looks ugly and sticks out sideways from the camera body so the palm of your hand doesn't curve naturally around it, but is pushed away and creates empty space between the camera and the palm. Also, the rubber is quite slippy and does not extend to where the finger tips sit, It doesn't feel safe to carry the camera with finger tips under the grip, which is what I would do on the E-M5 grip when on walking trips, and the rubber on that grip was very sticky and did extend all the way round. Feels very un-natural and not well balanced compared to the HLD-6G on the E-M5.. I will most likely be returning the grip in the hope that a more ergonomic 3rd party grip will appear. Very disappointed!!!
