    Nice grip. Is produced on a 3D printer? I'd so, how will the Arca plate wear?

    Regards,

    It's printed using Nylon 12, which is very strong but lightweight. Unless the quick release has a sawtooth edge, it's not going to wear. :)

    Ah good, I have just purchased 2 for filming duty but considering using one for family trips, but ideally needs a grip.
    For my filming work, they are on tripod and freestanding mono respectively so not an issue, but in hand...

    Right, off to look for an X-T10 grip then!
