    Does anyone know if they make some sort of grip enhancement/extension for the EP1? I really like the camera alot, but I wish it had just a slightly thicker grip.

    Hi Djarum,

    how do you carry your E-P1? I find that having a neck strap makes the camera easy to keep stable - I'll often walk with my hand resting on the camera, holding it down in tension slightly.

    It would actually be quite easy to have a grip enhancement made for the E-P1, due to the manner the leather pad is attached... just a moment, I remember seeing something :

    If you e-mail Richard Franiec, I'm sure he'd be able to produce something!

    Cheers

    Side Grip

    Has anyone tried a sidegrip for the Olympus EP1, something close to the Voigtlander side grip? Will it work or fit or maybe a different one? My thumb keeps hitting the thumb wheel. The newer camera doesn't have one maybe a good reason to buy it in the future.

    I have the same problem and have wondered about a side grip or a thicker grip in general. I don't have the problem of my thumb doing something at the time of the shot. I just have trouble changing ISO or WB when I'm wanting to change EV or shutter speed.

    Just a note to say that the two threads discussing the same concept have now been merged into one, to make things easier.:flowers_2:
