The new Kamerakraft LM grip v2.0 for Leica M film cameras is now available for sale at the Leica Rumors Online Store

Update – Kamerakraft grips are currently out of stock, but you can check the latest IDS Works modular grip for different Leica models:

The new Kamerakraft LM grip v2.0 for Leica M film cameras I mentioned on Instagram a few weeks ago is now available for sale in the Leica Rumors Online Store with free international shipping:

The grip is equipped with an ARCA rail and a small compartment for storing  batteries or extra strap lugs – here are the details:

  • Compatible with every film Leica M body, except the M5. This includes the Leica M1, M2*, M3*, M4, M4-2, M4-P, M6, M6TTL, M7, MP, MA, MD and MD2 (MD’s are compatible only with non-scientific baseplate).
  • Four SR44 / LR44 battery compartments so that you won’t have any excuses when your batteries suddenly dies.
  • Tripod quick lock rail (ARCA standard) to stop messing with your clumsy and uncentered tripod screw.
  • One bottom wrist strap lug to prevent your fingers from being jammed in your previous goddamn strap.
  • Beautiful aesthetics that won’t ruin your beautiful Leica slim line
  • A grippy profile that will let you hold your camera with only two fingers.

* Some early M cameras have a larger tripod thread (3/8″) in the baseplate. If your camera has that, you can easily adapt to the modern 1/4″ standard with a cheap and widely available “screw in” adapter.

Also: When using the following old goggled lenses, you will have to remove the grip for mounting and unmounting the lens because the goggles will interfere with the grip area: Summaron 35mm f2.8 with goggles, Summicron 35mm f2 with goggles, Elmarit 135mm f2.8 with goggles.
