Re: Handgrip 5N vs. 7

I also like the NEX 7 handgrip, but like the OP, I really only use my thumb, index, and middle fingers to control and hold the camera. In a word, its not tall enough.

So, I have a prototype grip being made and hopefully will be finished by next week. It is aluminum, adds 1/2 inch to the height of the camera, allows battery removal without unscrewing the grip, and includes a Arca-Swiss compatible dovetail.

The extra height allows the 4th finger to grip the camera better, and helps position the thumb and index finger for more control of the buttons and wheels. I think it will come in under 80 grams in weight, just enough to provide better balance and help with slower shutter speeds.
