Fair enough.


But I wasn't about to argue the point with Jerry Holway at the Workshop... :-)


And I'm not talking about a Larry McConkey grip here...just more of the meat of the fingers contacting the post, and the post cradled where the thumb meets the forefinger.


From my own experience and other ops I've talked to, it seems to be personal preference. You're right that on a flyer, even an LE (at least for me), you can't really get your whole hand around the grip. But on rigs where you can, it's a matter of preference whether you want to or not. I operate a big rig the same as my flyer, as far as how I touch the gimbal grip in general. There are exceptions for particular shots and whatnot.
