Long Lens Grip with Focus/Shutter Trigger for Sports
Jan 13, 2013

I recently completed a blog post on a pistol grip modification for use with long or heavy lenses.  I had a chance to use it the other evening for basketball.  Because the grip has a trigger switch for focus and the shutter, the entire camera weight can be support in the right hand after the left arm gets tired!  I look forward to trying it out in baseball - at least when I don't feel like using a monopod.

Although the mod is shown for Nikon, the grip mod will work for ANY brand camera as long as one has the correct cable.

Because this is one of my first blog posts, I would really like some feedback.  Any feedback, positive or negative, would be appreciated.

Here is an image of the completed grip and switch cable:
