Yes I think that a grip and cable release really transforms the Rolly into
something ergonomically first class. Add a Viv 283 strobe or something
similar and you have a wonderful, compact (and complete!) outfit. No farting
around wondering which lens to use/you should have used.

As you say it looks like something out of a late 1940s sci fi film when you
do this. However this is no bad thing in my book.
