Cool.  The N7000, just like the other one, would make a machinest drool.
Precision milled parts, not bent or stamped ones, and it's strong.  The
bracket is light by itself, but with body and flashes on it, the complete
assemblage is heavy.

Hand grip is nice, but there's this feeling it needs a death grip on it to
keep from dropping it without a strap around the back of the hand.  Maybe
it's just a security blanket, but the Winder, BG-2 and M645 grip all have
them, and it does give a more secure feeling when holding them.

...;  Inside a bracket that flips the camera on its side
though, it's much like operating it inside a large aluminum pretzel.  A
real mechanical marvel, and smooth operating with both the OM-4 and M645.
