It was SO worth the wait.
I think you've got a lemon...seems to have some problems with contrast!
Such a flimsy build! Olympus truly jumped the shark! Another fiasco, I dare say...
I have to say the grip and battery pack is truly first rate. Very solid and looks great. However this is not making the wait easier. Quite the opposite actually. :tongue:
The more I play with it the worse it gets. :tongue: At first I was concerned about the little rubber removable door you have to remove to fit the grip to the battery pack. I just found the storage detent for it behind the finger grip. Pretty cool.
Playing with the wheels ... they have a very positive detent as you rotate them. I am so impressed my unhappiness with Oly for the extra wait is fast evaporating. I guess I'm still a fan boy after all.
Doing that mock-up did do one positive thing for me beside getting laughs ... This camera and grip is compact. I don't think I'll ever take off the grip and pack. I have gnarly slightly crippled up hands. This thing is just right.
NICE!!!!! Im glad you pointed that out
Well I didn't say it was a 'big' concern. :tongue: I was just happy they covered this minor detail in such a innovative way.
C'mon. I got no camera man. give a guy a break. :tongue:
So thin ! I bet it doesn't weigh much
I meant that as a compliment..sorry if it came across the wrong way. I hate loosing parts off my gear and to have a place to put them ( like in the grip ) is a great way to keep track of them. I had no idea that was the place to store the rubber part until you pointed it out..I had to run into my office and try it out :smile:
Cool. I thought you were 'giving me the business' as they say.
I've run out of glossy photo paper. :tongue:
Just in case you didn't notice it, there is also a detent for the rubber cover from the horizontal grip in the top surface of the vertical grip.
Son of a gun! There is indeed.
Thanks for the chuckle!
