The finest photographic accessories for the discriminating photographer since 1989



An integrated design Grip for the Leica M8, M9 & M-E Digital cameras!


The MD-Grip® is the first independently designed Grip offered for the M8, M9 and M-E Leica Digitals. Machined in one piece from a solid billet of high strength aircraft alloy aluminum, the MD-Grip® is an integrated design shaped to fit and blend with the camera body beautifully, with no clumsy looking “post” for a handle.

The MD-Grip® incorporates a full length velvet covered base plate to protect the entire bottom of the camera and provide maximum stability when placed on a surface. Ready access to the camera’s back release locking toggle is provided by a large counter bored hole. Batteries and memory cards can be changed without removing the MD-Grip®.

For a non-slip grasp and wonderful feel, a soft rubber insert is inlayed into the MD-Grip® handle. Wrapping around to the back of the handle as well, the rubber forms a cushion between the handle and the camera body, eliminating the possibility of leatherette damage.

A compartment in the center of the handle, with a flush fit screw-in plug, provides the perfect place to store a micro fiber lens cleaning cloth.

Remarkably, as a result of careful design and the elimination of unnecessary material, the MD-Grip® weighs in at less than 4 ounces.

A corrosion-free stainless steel mounting screw, with a slot large enough to fit a coin, attaches the MD-Grip® to the camera via the tripod hole. The MD-Grip&reg does not need to be removed for tripod use, in fact it enhances it by providing an alternate tripod hole which is centered under the lens!

Fitting the photographer’s natural grasp, the MD-Grip® enhances the function of the camera by dramatically improving single-handed use, long exposure stability, and comfort with long lenses.

The MD-Grip® is available in either a silver or black hard anodized satin finish.

Providing the ultimate in control and protection, it is the perfect companion for your Leica Digital!

The MD-Grip® is priced at $141.

"All in all, I find it, after several months of daily use, to be in fact better than the Leica Grip, and a pleasure to use"... Gary Rothstein - MD-Grip owner
