The finest photographic accessories for the discriminating photographer since 1989



The finest Grip ever offered for the Leica M-Series film camera's!

A major upgrade over anything previously offered, the ML-Grip® is the first truly new design offered for the M-Series Leica film camera's in over a decade. While it obviously does not fit the M5, it fits all the rest of the Leica film camera's both physically and esthetically.

Machined in one piece from a solid billet of high strength aircraft alloy aluminum, the ML-Grip® is shaped to fit and blend with the camera body beautifully. The base and handle are one piece - not a separate handle held on by screws.

With a full length velvet covered base plate, the ML-Grip® protects the entire bottom of the camera. The base projects under the grip handle, to provide maximum stability when set down. The ML-Grip® has a large counter bored hole, providing access to the camera’s back release locking toggle. The Grip does not need to be removed to change film.

For a non-slip grasp and wonderful feel, the ML-Grip® handle has a soft rubber insert. The insert wraps around between the handle and the camera body, providing gentle but solid support against the camera body, without the possibility of leatherette damage. A compartment inside the handle, covered by a flush fit screw, provides that perfect place to store two spare light meter batteries.

Remarkably, at less than 4 ounces, it’s even lighter than the original M-Grip®, the result of precisely machining out unnecessary material in the base and the handle. A corrosion free stainless steel mounting screw, with a slot large enough to fit a coin, attaches the ML-Grip® to the camera via the tripod hole. An alternate tripod mount is provided, precisely centered under the lens. The ML-Grip® does not need to be removed for use on a tripod.

The ML-Grip® enhances the function of the camera by fitting the photographer’s natural grasp. The ML-Grip® improves long exposure stability, single-handed use, and comfort with long lenses.

The ML-Grip® fits all the M-series Leica’s film cameras except the M5 and M-A, and is available in either a silver or black hard anodized satin finish.

Providing the ultimate in control and protection - the perfect companion for your Leica rangefinder!

The ML-Grip® is priced at $141.
