well.. to me, i dont see a point..
1st of all - It is quite unpleasant to look at.
2nd of all - cant store extra battery
3rd and most important of all, no vertical release button..
not forgetting the time and hassle to create it..
i would just get the battery grip even if its worth 200 over dollars,
save time, save energy, more satisfied.
money well spent ! :thumbsup:
Maybe try to airbrush it black first??? So its not so obvious its a block of wood.
Nice imagination you have there....
But i would rather sell of the camera and get maybe a 2nd hand fuji s3 which has a grip built into the body....
