BUTTER GRIP Offers 3D-Printed Grips for Classic Film Cameras


Shoot a classic film camera but wish it had better ergonomics? BUTTER GRIP is a new line of 3D-printed grip attachments designed specifically for a large number of vintage cameras.

The brand is the brainchild of photographer Ethan Moses, the guy behind the 3-printed Cameradactyl 4×5 field camera.

“So far I’ve modeled all the cameras in my personal camera graveyard and working collection, and my friends Canon collection,” Moses tells PetaPixel. “I think that I made the first ever RIGHT hand grip for a Pentax 6×7.”

Here’s a look at the grip for the Leica M series, which fits all M cameras except the M5:

You can pick from a wide range of colors, including color-changing grips that change from one color to another at 88°F (31°C).

Most of the grips start at $21, and you can browse the current selection over in the BUTTER GRIP online store.
