Thinking about selling the grip
May 15, 2012

Having been with the HLD-2 grip for a few months now, I'm still not convinced whether I like it.

In addition to the issue I recently posted about metering, I do find the combo very heavy around the neck, especially after a couple of hours walking. I also find the weight of it bouncing about sometimes gets the 'delete' button pressed accidentally, which is fortunately defaulted to 'NO'.

I'm also finding the secondary shutter release is more often forgotten about by me - I have been simply twisting my arms for 30 years.

I've been out a couple of times now without it fitted, and find the E-1 far more usable to me, it's lighter for a start. Battery life has never really been an issue.

So, I'm thinking about selling it (I could do with the money anyway), any reason not to?
