    Lumix gf1 grip

    Hello all,

    I recently sold my canon g9 with a Franiec custom grip. I loved the feel of the grip on that camera. I now purchased a Lumix gf1 and my only complaint with the camera is the lack of a grip. Does anyone know of a custom grip like the Franiec? The g9 grip is no longer made, I was wondering if it would fit. (doubtful) Thank you in advance for any insights.

    - James

    I bought the Lumix leather cover for the GF1 for just that reason. I had (have-gave to husband) the Franiec grip on the G9 so understand what you are talking about. Some of the covers offered have more grip than others.

    I have this grip for my gf1:
    http://www.ne.jp/asahi/discoverphoto...rip/GFgrip.htm
    http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...threadid=92570

    It's solidly built and provides a very positive grip that really helps with bigger lenses. It's by no mean perfect - for example, it has to be removed to change the battery or card - but works as well as anything available when needed. If Panasonic made its own version,it would probably be better, but until then ...

    Now, how did I get it? I put "gf1 grip" into an Ebay saved search with email alert. Three days later, I got an alert and ended up winning it. I haven't had an alert since, so it was pure luck.

    I also have some (the parts around the grip) of the SGP deep black leather skin kit on it. Definitely helps when I don't have the big grip on it.
