Thumbs Up CSEP-4has a double cold shoe. You can focus accurately using the camera's viewfinder, then move your eye quickly to a finder mounted on the left-hand shoe unlike using a centrally mounted external viewfinder, the views will match, making composition much easier. Using the left-hand cold shoe for your finder allows ample room for photographers with long noses too! The right-hand shoe can be be used for a second accessory, for example another viewfinder, a "bubble" level, or Kenko's Rangefinder Polarizer.
Thumbs Up CSEP-4 is CNC machined from solid brass billet, and both cold shoes are integral parts of the complete assembly and cannot be removed no screws, no joints and no glue ensure strength and longevity, and guarantee that your compositions will be accurate and repeatable every time.
Thumbs Up CSEP-4 can be locked securely into place on your camera which prevents it from moving when using external viewfinders, ensuring consistent, repeatable framing. The locking mechanism is concealed beneath the leaf spring of the right-hand shoe, and is easily and quickly operated using the small Allen Hex wrench provided.
The left-hand shoe has a slight offset, to provide clearance for viewfinder-window accessories, such as our E-Clypse EyeCups or Leica diopters.
Thumbs Up CSEP-4 uses our new ergonomic "EP" thumb rest profile, which is described in detail on our Thumbs Up CSEP-1 page.
Thumbs Up CSEP-4 will fit the following Leica M models: M9, M8-2, M8, M8U, M7, M6, M6 TTL, M4, M3 and M2. Note: the cold shoe will not obscure the LCD on the top plate of the Leica M8 or M8-2.
