Re: OMD E-M5 Original design Grip

I agree with Sergey about the threaded tripod mount position, but it looks like a challenge to get that where it should be.

My other initial impression was that if it has a QR groove to accommodate QR clamps, it could be a cheaper alternative to the RSS plate w/grip.   I couldn't tell if the cutout for screen access also was a QR groove.    At that, it might be possible to provide a generic (Manfrotto?) QR model as well as an Arca-Swiss type.   The RSS plate/grip is a joy to handle - I think a lesser cost alternative (knockoff, if you prefer) aimed at that market could do very well.

Just thinking aloud. . .
