grip on the rx100...got one?

i just ordered one and look forward to experiencing what it does for handling...still unsure as i don't think the handling is bad on it's own.
anyone have one already? what do you think of it?

Soap bar shaped compacts normally benefit from add-on grips.
rx100 seems to be no different.

I ordered one thinking it was molded rubber or plastic. Found out after the fact that it is apparently aluminum! Looking forward to it.

Ordered a Clearviewer yesterday - great service from Gary.
Pic of my camera with the Flipbac grip is on one of the other RX100 threads.

I have that on my rx100. They don't really help much at all for shooting. But it makes the camera much easier to hold when not shooting.

I use a cheap after-market case and strap instead.

The leather case adds enough beef that it's easy to hold and shoot, and with the strap it has the added benefit that when I hold the camera out (with the strap around my neck) I can use the taut strap as a stabilizer. I would get the cheap case and strap over the Sony version because the cheap version that I have, has the strap attached to the case via rivets which can rotate. This allows me to use the strap as a shooting stabilizer. On the Sony case, the strap is attached to the case via stitching and so you can't use the strap as a stabilizer without stressing the stitching.

I have a Franiec grip on my RX-100. It is really excellent - well made and improves the handling of the camera significantly, and importantly, doesn't make the camera feel any larger.

why do you want to keep an rx100 and a rx1? Isn't the rx1 simply better?

Don't mean to be picky, but did you actually read the title of the thread?? It refers to having a grip on an RX100. No ref to an RX1.

I got the Franiec it's a useful accessory, makes it very convenient and can hold in one hand with confidence.

I received my Franiec grip today. Well worth it. The handling is much better.

Wow.

What a great accessory!

Not just for the reasons one would think -such as how it improves an already good device. But, in this case, just how nice this item is finished! The finish is utterly identical to the Sony finish -a finish that does not appear easy to match!

Very well done and could easily be confused with a piece that could have shipped in the OEM packaging!

Two BIG thumbs up!
