The P5 has a neoprene-like rough textured material to minimize twisting. I've used it with both my Nikons (rubber camera base) and my Leica M8.2 (smooth metal camera base). The P5 grips well, particularly with the Nikons. I have not experienced any twisting with the P5, but have not used it in situations where it was exposed to a significant amount of twisting torque.
