Re: ECG-2 Handgrip

I had both original grips.
For me, the ECG-2 makes more comfortable handling the top buttons of the camera. I think it is because of its lower height above the HLD-8.
The finish is very good, very fine aluminum. I can only negative note is that if you carry your sidearm attached, the screen can only be opened 90 degrees.
It is cheaper if you look used. I buy it again before the HLD-8

Re: ECG-2 Handgrip

Thanks for your feedback.
My ECG-2 arrived today, very nice it is too. The camera feels perfectly balanced with the 12-40 fitted now.
Thoroughly recommended.

Definitely worth a look Alf, I managed to pick one up used (but looks like new) from Ffords Photographic for only 35.

Re: ECG-2 Handgrip

Looks good. I may also look into getting one but I already have the HLD-8G grip.
