HLD6 first impressions...
May 22, 2012

If this had come with the OM-D on day one I would have liked the camera much more. It felt way too small and fiddly.

However two (or is three?) weeks later and my fingers have found their way around the camera.

So now the grip just reminds me I don't like grips, and how nice it is to have a tiny camera.

It does, however, give you portrait handling (never felt the need) and a second battery (not included, miserable gits).

It also means when you have been asked as the official photographer and wish to crush uncle Joe and his poxy Canon dSLR who keeps getting in your way, the camera looks that much more serious.

To ebay or not to ebay, that is the question...

Anyway, it's a nice grip, if you like grips, but my advice would be to give the camera a chance before you add it, because it really does not need it.
