    Kirk SGH-2 reviews

    Super Grip Handle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for camera, no so for lens. First, this is an incredibly solid and well-made grip. And the rubber part of the grip sticks to your hand regardless of weather. However, I find the distance from the grip handle to the base is too far. This is not an issue with the camera, but for me is an issue with lenses. The previous Kirk grip model 1 has a shorter distance and different shape, which makes it comfortable and easy to use your hand as a base and still be able to work the lens zoom while shooting. Plus you can also use the grip to carry the lens. But with this model 2 with the distance from the grip handle being larger, I can only use the grip to carry the lens, not hold it while shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get a handle on your camera gear My passion is wildlife photography and that is accomplished now with a Canon 7D II with a EF 100 400mm MK II lens. A typical outing involves a 4 to 10 mile hike. For years I carried the predecessor to my present lens a EF 100 400 MKI by its mounting foot or cradled in my arm. The new lens' mounting foot is closer to the to the lens body and carrying it by the mounting foot with gloves is very problematic so after year of thinking of buying or making a handle I finally splurged and ordered the Kirk Handle. What a difference! If I had known the ease that the handle makes for lugging that camera and lens I would have gotten it years ago. The grip of the rubber handle is a perfect fit for my hand and the traction of the rubber gives me great confidence of being in complete control. An additional benefit is the handle gives a grip for you left hand away from the center of axis of the camera and lens that allows, for me at least, a much steadier platform for hand held shots. I have had it only for a short time but at this moment but I am very pleased. It has surpassed my expectations by far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in Class Allows you to hand hold those last few camera lens combinations that are just short of NEEDING a tripod. The handle itself sticks to my grip relentlessly in even sweaty conditions. Made in USA is always a plus. You get what you pay for. In a dream world I'd ask for black anodized grip ends instead of red.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bracket a little too long This is a solid bracket. I am using this with an L bracket and my camera. The bracket distance places the grip a little too far away. Kirk should offer a closer bracket piece that would move the grip closer.
