Ricoh GXR grip is a bit loose, glue fail?
Jan 28, 2012

Is anyone else having a similar problem with their GXR? I've read about it happening with the previous GRD models and GX models, but haven't been able to find much on the GXR yet. The grip area at the back right next to the preview button seems to be loosening, bubbles underneath the grip and what appears to be glue seeping out right on top of the + (Up) button.

I'm guessing Ricoh is still using the same method of gluing their grip onto the camera as per their previous cameras. Did anyone manage to find a fix for this? Thanks in advance
