Remote trigger holder/handle - 3-D printed

Hi,

Just wanted to share my DIY accessory for Pentax K-3. It is not very specific for Pentax, so it can be adapted for other cameras.
I use rifle stock-style shoulder support for shooting action with tele-lens. To make it even smoother, I designed and 3-D printed an attachment for a standard wired trigger.
It can be attached to the camera even without the shoulder support and used as a handle. I usually shoot with back-button focus, so my right hand is on the AF button and I press the trigger button with the left.
The trigger is turned side-ways and this position proved to be very convenient for pressing.
