Grip for dp1 and 2 Merrill

https://picasaweb.google.com/Richard...38282909805026

Got this email from Richard Franiec today.. Coming soon, in December, 36.95

I had asked him last month when he would have one available.

Gary

--------------------------------------

New Sigma DP1/DP2 Merrill Custom Grip.

Driven by popular demand this grip is designed specifically for new Sigma
Merrill DP compacts to address the handling concerns indicated by users.
Thanks to the grip, using and carrying DPMerrill cameras comfortably and
with enhanced safety is now possible.

The finger grove of the grip was designed and tested to fit the hand in most
natural way enhancing operation of control camera functions on the fly.

Covering shining silver logo by necessary extension of grip makes
DPMerrills stealthy; the street shooter preferable look of their tools. Yet
the grip shows subdued, unmistakable sign of origin of the camera.

CG-DPMerrill grip does not compromise compactness of the camera. It sits
well below the retracted lens adding negligible weight of around an ounce
(35 grams).


The grip is individually precision 3D CNC machined from high grade aluminum
alloy, glass bead blasted and black anodized with nickel seal for
durability.
CG-DPM grip attaches to the camera by 3M VHB clear transfer tape known for
ultimate bonding power in wide range of environments. Once mounted, the grip
will become integral part of the cam, yet it can be removed without the
damage to the camera or grip finish when the need arises.

Custom DP1/2Merrill grip will be available in first part of December 2012
for $36.95 plus shipping.

A bit more "ornate" than I'd like, but boy is the Franiec stuff NICE!

I recently bought one for my RX100 -very impressive feel and finish.

This oughta' be a nice stocking stuffer. Thanks for the heads-up!

That looks good if you're not looking for L bracket mount or tripod useability. For that kind of use the Milich grip is best. Nice to see this camera attracting interest and third party add ons.

The old adage says: Seeing is believing. To me, that doesn't mean that the world seen is the truth, it means rather that seeing is a field in which the purity of heart is expressed--or not, depending upon whatever happens to cloud that purity at any given moment.
