How do you hold your GH2?
Jan 30, 2012

So it's arrived and I've had a play. Or a fumble, more precisely! Coming from the chunky L1, I'm used to just grabbing the grip without thinking about it. Grab the GH2 without checking carefully where the fingers are going and I'm pressing buttons without realising it and various settings are flashing before my eyes and being changed when I don't want them to!

With the 14-140 mounted it's fairly weighty and you need a firm grip. So fingers go round the front of the grip and thumb pressing on the back - right on top of Quick Menu and 4-way controller buttons - and all hell breaks loose!

So how do you hold it and carry it around (switched on)? Seems I may have to get used to grabbing it by the lens? I guess it's the price to pay for a smaller camera and something, with practice, I will get used to??
