P67 wood handle on P645D

Saw this in Ricoh FB page, under their 645 photographer, 小林幹幸

That is nice, but the grip is an aftermarket product, not the Pentax 67 unit. The 67 grip attaches to the side of the body.

Whoa, that's seriously retro. I have the 6x7 grip and it's a conversation piece. Regarding that aftermarket handle for the 645D, any idea where to get one?

The description says it's the original 67 grip. If that's true someone has done some significant modifications by removing the side attachments and getting it to connect to the bottom of the body.

I had one of these that I thought might be useful when I did aerial photography work with the 645D. Ended up not liking it because the balance was all off and holding was harder than just a hand on the bottom of the gyro. But you could easily do something like this. I had mine modified to not use the clamp and bolt sratight on as the main arcs tripod plate. It was a good thought since I had the extra hold and still had a bottom arcs plate but again it didn't feel right.

If you compare the 67 to the 645, you will see that those cameras have an entirely different configuration for attachment to that shown in the photograph. It is thus not an original we are looking at, but a highly customised and re-machined example for that camera. Not that I think the wooden grip adds anything in terms of aesthetics or improved handling compared to the big and bulky 6x7 / 67 bodies for which one or two handles were often the norm.
