Fujifilm X-T10 Accessories And Gear
The new X-T10 is here! To help you get all the best gear I'll compiled a list of some of the accessories that have been working great for me on my Fujifilm cameras.
A lot of people have been contributing to my other lists with gear with their feedback so let me know if you find something that really works well for you, or if you have something that works better than what I've listed.

Fuji X-T10 Accessories List
I probably won't be buying the X-T10 because I already own the X-T1 so I'll be a little limited on what I can review here. However, I will be renting one as soon as they are available.
The Essentials - Batteries, Screen Protectors & Memory Cards
Fujifilm X-T1 Batteries
I really hope the battery life in the X-T10 is as good as the X-T1. My battery performance in the X-T1 is awesome. I have two batteries for that camera. The Fujifilm battery and a battery called Green Extreme. I like the Green Extreme because they use recycles packaging but other batteries should work great too.

Fuji X-T10 Screen Protector
I highly recommend a screen protector, I've already scratched a few of mine pretty bad and it wasn't for the protector my rear screen would be scratched.
The screen on the Fuji X-T10 is actually different than the X-T1 screen.

Best SD Memory Cards
The camera uses UHS-I SD memory cards. No other special specs are required. To see which memory work best with this camera, see my Fuji X-T10 SD Memory Card Speed Tests.
Fuji X-T10 Soft Shutter Release
Fujifilm did something on the X-T10 that I really wish was on the X-T1. They've allowed for a soft shutter release.
These are awesome and I use them on my X100T. Here is what I use.
Neewer - 10MM Diameter Red Metal Convex - These are cheaper and not built as well. Sometimes they fall off because they don't have a rubber washer like the Lensmate but they still work.
Gariz makes one as well but they put their giant logo on it. Not sure the logic in that. There are a few other hipster sites on the internet that make them out of wood as well.
Lensmate has just informed me that their Thumb Grip is ready for pre-order. You can see the prototype images on their website here.
Grips And Cases
Leather Cases and Grip Cases
It will be a little bit before we see a leather grip case for this camera. Some people don't like them, some people do. I use them on all my cameras because they get so beat up without them. I've been really liking the Gariz cases. I'll post them when they're ready.
Fuji also has made a case for this called the BLC - XT10 but I haven't been able to find it yet. I also don't think Fujifilm puts a tripod mount on their cases so check for that.
Leather Camera Straps
I've been on an eternal quest for the perfect leather camera strap.
So far I've found that LeicaTime really makes the best leather strap. They can't be beat. Those Italians, they have a gift with leather. I know his site seems shady and 3rd world but I can assure you his products are not! He is 100% legit and makes the best leather products for cameras you'll ever see. But I mean seriously, how hard is it to install a wordpress theme. ;) Anyway.

Tap & Dye make a decent strap. LeicaTime might be better for the price.

Hard Graft - (Hardgraft.com) I've been using the Re-Process strap on my XT1. It's amazing.
Gariz Leather Straps - (Amazon)
There are so many options out there so I'll list a few that I've seen or have tried out.
These straps that allow you to connect to the tripod mount so the camera hangs upside down. It's a different style and removing the strap very easy which is nice. A few of the leather companies do this like Gordy's and Gariz but Black Rapid and C-Loop do this very well.
Black Rapid - (Amazon)
C-Loop - (Amazon) There are a few styles of C-Loop, the standard and the mini. So I'll link to Custom SLR's main page. You probably only need the C-Loop Mini for this camera. But I've been using the standard size.
Fujfilm X-T1 Lenses And Lens Accessories
Fujifilm X-T1 Lenses
I keep an updated list of all the available lenses that can be easily purchased for the Fujifilm X-T1.
See the Fujifilm X-Mount Lens List.
Fuji X-T1 Macro Extension Tube
There are two Macro Extension tubes you can purchase by Fuji. The MCEX-11 and the MCEX-16. I own the MCEX-11 to use my 56mm f1.2 lens as a macro lens. This works great but there are some huge limitations. One is that your max focus will only be a few feet from the camera. When you have the macro extension tube mounted you really can only take photos of up close macro photography. This works different than a real macro lens that still has infinity focus.

The MagicFiber is a pack of really nice quality cleaning cloths. The pack I got has each cloth individual wrapped so you can keep them put away until you need them. Typically one cloth lasts me awhile but eventually they get dirty and stop doing their job or I end up losing them. Which is why having 6 is really nice.
I couldn't live without an Rocket Air Blaster. I really don't like touching the glass on my lenses or my sensor, so using a blast of air is a really nice way to get the dust off.

I've been using the Mover 20. It's been nice, if you just have one lens the Mirrorless Mover 10 should work as well.

Instax Portable Printer - These are fun little compact Fujifilm printers. They're nice because you can throw them in your camera bag or bring them to a party and print out photos on instant photo paper. The camera syncs directly with the printer over wifi which is pretty awesome.
Fuji makes a few flashes but I'll list the two compacts. The Fujifilm EF-X20 and the EF-20.
The main difference is the Fujifilm EF-X20 is smaller, takes AAA batteries and does not tilt or swivel. It also has a manual control dial on the top. The EF-20 takes AA batteries and can tilt but has a slightly cheaper build quality. People using the EF-X20 complain that the batteries die quickly and the recycle time is about 5 seconds. The EF-20 is slightly better for this and you'll be able to use it as a bounce flash which is pretty nice.
