    Thanks! Seems like some folks on fleabay are charging even more for these alternatives ($119!!!!) than some are the RB67 grips , but some of them are also available much more cheaply. Great ideas.

    This is a fairly complete RB67 system for a reasonable price. Probably could negotiate a lower price. It includes a left hand grip.

    Reasonable? Try around 1/2 that. If it's an RB Pro with old RB Pro backs, possible non-C lenses, and possibly busted metered finder--we're looking at a very old pile of gear. Pix suck. Looks like an estate buy someone snagged for 300-400 bucks tops.

    My problem with all these LH grips, aside from the hard-to-find version with the twist grip, is no tripod mounting option.

    I know what you mean. My LH grip doesn't have a tripod mount. Very annoying.

    This is the grip I used on my RB67 (until recently when I sold it to a friend who now uses it on his Mamiya 645). I have a wrist injury and pretty much always use my RB67 on a tripod these days.

    Anyway, this one does have a tripod socket on the bottom, on which I usually attached a monopod. I paid $25. It also has a tripod screw on top that could be used for mounting a ball head for a flash.

    I think I paid 45.00usd for the angle grip and it had the all important base plate.
    70.00 is too much for the standard grip.

    The standard grip I have has been modified to include a tripod socket - the camera attachment screw was replaced with one with the necessary socket welded to the bottom.

    The 2 Mamiya grips I have do have a tripod socket on the bottom; they are not where you would expect them to be but off to the side of the screw that mounts to the camera.

    Ah, well the bad news. The second guy only had an old RB Pro body and backs and old, non-C lenses that hadn't been dusted in 15-20 years. But he kinda cleaned em up with his thumb for me before I could cry. :-( Think I'll have to pass on that camera, but I may get a back or two from him if he sells them real cheap, being the inferior version. At least the seals looked good. And he had kind of a neat waist level finder with a large round viewing lens, but for all I know maybe those are inferior too. Guess I'm back to guy #1 again for the camera...

    I use non-C lenses and they are fabulous.
