New handgrip for X Pro 1 ... Bad design Fuji!

I can understand you wanted to accommodate Swiss Arca but what about the rest of the world who uses conventional threaded tripods and monopods, such as Gitzo or Sirui to name a couple, and those who like to use BlackRapid straps.

To have the new handgrip only accommodate Swiss Arca is a mistake.  You should have had the hand grip threaded for conventional and had an insert for Swiss Arca, or made it an insert either or.

First you made the original without a cutout for the battery and card, now this.  YOU are asleep at the switch on this one Fuji.

Mine is on the way back to Amazon.
