Maybe I wood if it woodn't break! But then, I woodn't want to be seen with one of those on my camera. :tongue:I'm astonished at how much turmoil this simple posting of an Amazon link to give Amin some revenue for this website has caused. Come on people, get a grip. (pun intended...)
Olympus already offers a terrific add-on grip for the em10. I don't think JB could compete with it.:tongue::evilsmile:If JB wants to give me a (Nice) grip for my E M10 (gratis)...I would begrudgingly accept in payment for all the interest in his wooden grips...
It was probably my order.it would seem our bellyaching has put his product up somewhat on amazon.
That might be an issue for folks shooting with f/2.8 zooms, but my fast primes are lightweight, as is the camera. At any rate, I always use a wrist strap.My concern is the unfortunate property with wood/timber is that it can crack & the plate (shelf) might crack at the wrong time with a heavy lens on it because of the leverage from the 'broomstick'. I don't know how strong the Peruvian Walnut timber is that he is using, but with all timbers there are some widely varying properties. I would feel more comfortable if there was an inset metal plate in the base of the 'shelf' that the 'broomstick' attached to via the internal rod, but it only has a cap of that rod system, with the cut-out for the battery access adding to that weakness. That's just my thoughts on it anyhow.
Yeah I think I will have to go with oly version...just being a tight wad..I suppose 54 quid is better than the 200 quid originally for E M5 version!Olympus already offers a terrific add-on grip for the em10. I don't think JB could compete with it.

How does one do that? Is it a service you pay for or does Amazon publish it somewhere?Not to get too crazy stalker or anything but I've checked the amazon sales rank # on it every so often and over the last few days it's gone from hovering around ~12000 to ~8000-~9000 to ~2500 now
I've not had an E-PM2 in hand to make a grip. I'll definitely consider it. BTW, I love the E-P5 grip - my favorite!
Police in Australia stopped because you had a camera?Yep, really liking mine as well. Got stopped by the police using it though (not even for taking photos or using it, just, *tyre screech* "you have a camera! explain yourself!") , which never happened using the P5 by itself. Maybe it does look a little too much like a dodgy panelvan
Yuup. Had not even been seen taking any photos of anything, nor did they have any interest in seeing anything I had actually taken on the camera when offered. Just - having a camera 2 blocks from your own house in broad daylight is enough for a good 5-10 minute pigging. Don't you know there is a school and a daycare centre in this suburb? :/Police in Australia stopped because you had a camera?
