Thumbs Up is an accessory thumb rest that enables you to hold your Leica M or Fuji X camera with improved balance, comfort, and security.

You won’t believe the difference that it makes! Your compositions will be more consistent, your photographs sharper; and the secure grip when holding your camera provides peace of mind. Thumbs Up users report being able to take hand-held shots at 1–2 stops slower shutter speed

Designed initially for the Leica M8, Thumbs Up is also found on many film Leica M cameras as well. Now Thumbs Up has a new models specifically for the Fuji X Series cameras such as the Fuji X10, X20, X-100, X-100s, X-E1 and X-Pro 1.

Manufactured to an exceptionally high standard, and is CNC machined from solid brass and hand polished. The final finish is a baked enamel that will perfectly match the color of your Leica or Fuji camera.

Thumbs Up ships with silcone rubber insert – and adds 0.5 mm of padding between Thumbs Up and the camera body. A portion of this silicone rubber insert has to be removed when using Thumbs Up on film Leicas, to accommodate the sync socket – the original plastic Leica sync socket cap can be refitted.

The CS (“cold shoe”) models have an additional locking mechanism, to prevent the movement of accessories such as external viewfinders
