Panasonic GM1 – Review Part 2 – The Grip

What grip? There isn’t one.

Here is a standard stock photo of the camera as it comes out of the box:


The lovely grippy material on the front here and on the back in the next image does help a lot, but it requires that you pinch pretty hard if you want a one handed grip. I wouldn’t, that’s for sure.

So instead, I decided to grab myself one of those cool metal Richard Franiec grips. And here it is …

The key here is that the right middle finger folds naturally down the front frip while the thumb lays on the rubbery patch on the back. All in all, a far nicer feel to the camera. And it looks amazing …

Highly recommended.
