Thumbs Up EP-1S                          
Available in Black, Silver, Steel Grey and M-E Grey
Now in our 6th year of production of Thumbs Up, match has returned to the fundamentals with the introduction of Thumbs Up EP-1S. Simple, compact, and effective, Thumbs Up EP-1S embodies all the features of the original Thumbs Up model 1 design but with the addition of the EP ("ergonomic profile") thumb rest. In 2012 the Silicone Rubber insert has been added and now spans the entire width of the Thumbs Up. This serves to dampen vibration, provide a more stable contact with the camera body and better protect the Leica camera body.
The EP-1S thumb rest incorporates the well proven 22 degree beveled EP grip. This profile provides the most efficient shape to hold the camera more securely and more comfortably. The special EP profile substantially reduces grip pressure and therefore camera shake.

Thumbs Up has been positively reviewed in Viewfinder(the journal of the Leica Historical Society of America) and Leica Fotografie International. Phil Askey of in his Leica M9 Hands-on Preview was also very impressed with Thumbs Up. The Luminous Landscape's Michael Reichmann describes Thumbs Up as "a purchase you won't regret for a second" in An M9 in Paris – A Field Review, and as "an invaluable and essential tool" on SteveHuff Photo. Our customers have also been enthusiastic (see our feedback page and
