The ergonomic handgrip ensures a firm hold on the Leica M11, especially when shooting in portrait format or with one hand. Optional finger loops in sizes S, M and L offer additional security. It mounts easily without any tools and can also be used when photographing with a tripod. The handgrip is ARCA-SWISS compatible, and can be directly inserted into a congruent coupling system via the integrated dovetail, without the need for a quick-release plate. The camera’s USB port and battery – concealed beneath an easy-to-open rubber cover on the base plate – remains fully accessible at all times, even when the handgrip is mounted. This enables a continuous connection to, for example, a power bank or the Leica FOTO cable and a quick change of the battery. Just like the M11, the handgrip is made of aluminium with a black paint finish – creating a perfect colour match.
