Some of you will recall that I purchased the Custom Grip from Richard Franiec and was very happy with it. I also purchased the Camera Plate from RRS for the V1 and the two did not play nicely when the grip was mounted with Richard's recommendation. I wrote to Richard after realizing this because I wanted to retain both, but knew I would have to move the grip up to accommodate the RRS plate.

Richard understood the interference problem and offered to send me replacement adhesive strips to remove and replace the grip at a "higher" position. He didn't think it would be as esthetically pleasing an installation, but understood the "sacrifice" that I wanted to make.

I removed the grip after Richard reported the adhesive strips were in the mail and installed the camera plate. I then positioned the grip "above" the edge of the camera plate so that they would not interfere when I installed the plate again. I have not yet received the adhesive, so right now both pieces are positioned but not permanently mounted (the camera plate screw is tight, but it doesn't ever really get "permanently" mounted).

You couldn't do this with the Nikon grip because it takes up base space. I think this combination is ideal for me.

The bottom line is that it all fits together, and still looks esthetically pleasing to me.
