There is a thumbs up that has a shoe on top, but no hot shoe, so if your 
camera company chose to omit that basic thing, you're screwed.

I think my Leica grip makes the M8 perfectly handholdable. Without it, I 
found it awkward and slippery. With the Fuji X-Pro 1 there is a similar 
problem: it is not easy to handle it with one hand, and to make it worse 
there are all those little buttons to press by accident.

This week I took delivery of the Thumbs-Up for the Fuji, bought directly 
from Tim Isaac. It is awesome! It has made my Fuji just as easy to handle 
with one hand as my M8.


- if you are a lefty, I guess it will not work for you
- if you use flash, it will not work for you either since the thingie 
occupies the flash slot. But I consider flash the work of the devil so it is 
no problem for me.

Highly recommended.
