Take a look at this ugly Sugru grip I made for my GM5
4

I made this grip with one packet of black Sugru. I rolled it into a cylinder and positioned it on the camera. Then, I used a straight edge to squish and smooth it to have a very precise* triangular cross-section. Then I gripped the camera and squashed the grip to fit my hand in the preferred position. I carefully peeled it off the body, trying to preserve the shape as much as possible, and mounted it on a piece of 3M double-sided removable tape. I know Sugru is supposed to be removable, but this was my first time using it. I didn't want to chance it messing up the finish of the GM5 if I decide I hate the grip down the road.

This morning, it was dry and ready to mount. It's not much to look at, but it fits my hand perfectly. Since it resembles a hunk of chewed black licorice, I believe it will also act as a theft deterrent.

Make one out of brown, you 're guaranteed it won't be stolen.

Great idea, and if it works, it works!

Cheers,
