Camera Body & Basic Accessories
Best Batteries For The Fuji X100T
Here are a few battery options. I have Fuji for the X100T, and the STK, BM and Wasabi for various other cameras. They are all great and all seem to hold a good charge. I know some third party batteries lie about their capacity, but lately the following batteries seem to hold true.
If I had to buy more batteries, this is the order it would go.
Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack) - 2,200mAh 3.7v - (Amazon)
Patona - 1,600mAh 3.7v - (Amazon)
STK's Fuji NP-95 Battery - 2,000mAh 3.7v - (Amazon)
There is a voltage difference between the original Fuji battery and the 3rd party. It will make a little difference but likely not noticeable. The mAh will represent how much charge it holds, bigger is usually better.
Notes: I've had a lot of problems using third party batteries with my Sony A7r. The problem I was having is that the charger kits that come these cheap batteries don't charge the batteries well, or they charge them too fast resulting in a bad charge. So I would have to charge the 3rd party batteries with the Sony charger or in Camera then everything was good. Luckily the X100T comes with a charger. Thank you Fuji!
I haven't really seen a lot of camera savvy technophiles talking about this camera since it seems to attract the hipsters with a little more cash. But from what it seems, this camera does have a memory buffer it is just ridiculously small. I thinking probably about 100MB vs the 500MB Sony puts in there cameras and the 2GB of Leica. In that case you'll want to get the fastest card possible because you'll only be able to burst about 5-7 shots before filling your buffer. Then it is all about SD card speeds.
The memory card interface on the X100, X100s and X100t is only UHS-I, so don't waste your money on a UHS-II card.
Fuji X100T Screen Protectors
The Fuji X-E2 screen protectors work perfectly on the X100T. And I can confirm this. Here are a few.
JJC LCP-XE2 Guard - (Amazon)
JJC LCP-XE2 Guard Ultra Hard - (Amazon)
Expert Shield - (Amazon)
Expert Shield Anti Glare - (Amazon)
If you don't have a thumb grip or don't plan on getting one, then the terminal protectors are very nice to use when you're not using an external flash.
Comes with a Hot Shoe Cover, Sync Terminal Cap & Vertical Grip Cover. Only the Hot Shoe Cover works on this camera.
Terminal Protector - (Amazon)
Soft Release Buttons
Set up your camera with a soft release button. There are so many options out there it's hard to decide.
Here are a few popular ones but there are many options besides these. Right now I see a lot of people ordering the 10MM Diameter one probably because they are cheaper, but they do fall off occasionally because they lack a rubber spacer that keeps them from vibrating. The Lensmate has the rubber spacers but are pricey.
Neewer 10mm Diameter Red - (Amazon)
Lensmate - Anodized Red Lizard
I bought the Red Lizard but check out more options here
The thumb grips are really nice to secure the camera in hand. The camera already feels solid, but getting one of these just makes the camera feel sooo nice.

Kaza Deluxe Leather Case & Strap
Grip-Case for Fujifilm X100, X100s - (Amazon)
I'll list more as they become available. They make a cool wood one but not for this camera yet.
So far the only case I've tested out is the Gariz leather half-case. I really like it. Although it was originally designed for the X100s and X100, it also fits the X100T great. See my full Gariz Leather Half Case Review.
Gariz Black Leather Half Case - (Amazon)
Fujifilm LC-X100S Fitted Brown Leather Case - (Amazon) - Fits the X100T also.
Ciesta Genuine Half Case + Leather Strap + Cap - (Amazon) - No tripod mount on the bottom.
The Fujifilm X100T has a fixed lens but there are several enhancements availabe as well as lens adapters to change the focal length.
Best UV Filters And Lens Hoods For Fuji X100s, X100T
These are pretty important for a fixed lens camera like this. Especially if you use it while you're drunk at a party.
You can't just send your lens in for repair or replace it like you can with an interchangeable.
Filter And Hood Adapters
Fujifilm Lens Hood + Adapter Ring (Silver & Black Options)- (Amazon) Fujifilm finally wised up and started selling these at a reasonable price.
Fujifilm AR-X100 Adapter Ring 49mm - This is the adapter by Fujifilm. Looks great, comes in silver and black. This is for if you want to just be able to attach filters to your lens. It sticks out slightly so it will provide some sun glare protection, but not as much as with the adapter plus hood. Black & Silver Available.
Fujifilm AR-x100 Adapter Ring 49mm+Lens Hood - Pricey, but you get the official Fujifilm adapter ring plus a lens hood. Black & Silver Available.
JJC LH-JX100 Lens Hood/Adapter Ring Silver - A lens hood, unscrew the filter thread protector and attach this. Then order a UV with 49mm filter threads for this hood. And get a good one. Don't be cheap with this stuff.
Silver - (Amazon)
Black - (Amazon)
Fotasy X100KT 49mm Metal Filter Adapter + Hood + Filter - (Amazon) This is a nice lens hood as well. Comes with a filter that will probably fall apart on you after a month like mine did. Consider order a good UV filter with this.

Fuji X100T With Hard Graft Slide Camera Wrist Strap
It's getting to that point where I need to make a dedicated page just for all the great straps I've found. I'll likely do that next year, so if you're on my Fuji newsletter (down below) I'll send that out when it's ready. Expect it to be very cool and thorough.
There are several wrist straps I've tried now, the Gariz, the Gordy's and now the Hard Graft Slide. I'll give a little bit of information about each one.
Gariz Camera Strap
If you want a really simple wrist strap the Gariz is great. I have a few and have had them for years. Some of them are really beat up but still hold together well. The colors do fade after awhile. They do have that sort of mass produced made in China feel to them, but they're still very durable and well made.
Gariz Genuine Leather Camera Wrist Strap - (Amazon)
Gordy's Camera Straps
Gordy's makes some great full straps as well as leather wrist straps. If I had to pick I would take a Gordy's over the Gariz since they are both a similar price. The Gordy's strap has more of a handcrafted feel, where as the Gariz feels a bit more China made mass produced.
Gordy's Also Makes Great Straps - Gordyscamerastraps.com
Hard Graft Slide Camera Wrist Strap
Although more expensive, this is a far superior strap to the other two and is my personal favorite. This strap is simply beautiful. It's very well built with a handcrafted feel and is made with some really great leather.
I wrote up a small review on this strap you can read about - Hard Graft Slide Camera Strap Review
Hard Graft Slide Camera Wrist Strap - (HardGraft.com)
I've found some really nice leather straps that would go very well with the Fuji X100T.
Check these out. They're a bit expensive but it's genuine leather and should last you a lifetime if you take care of it.
Tap and Dye - (Camera Straps and Wrist Straps)
HardGraft - (Instant Camera Strap) (Hang Camera Strap) (Re-Process) - I've been using the Re-Process on my XT1. It's worth looking at. I love it. They've introduced several new designs that you should check out.
LeicaTime Straps - (Leicatime.com)
Gariz Leather Straps - (Amazon)
If you just keep your original Fuji strap, something like a C-Loop is nice for being able to quickly take it on and off. I use a wrist strap for my X100T and a full strap sometimes with a C-Loop. For my X-T1 I like having a full strap all the time.
C-Loop Camera Strap Mount - (Amazon)
There is a new C-Loop mini that might work nice with the Fuji strap.

I have the Mover 20 so I can fit both my A7r and FujiX100T in a single case at the same time. If you just have the Mover 10 you can fit a FujiX100s and X100T both at the same time. It's tight but it works.
One of the features I really like is when you unzip the case, the top flap has a built in magnet that snaps shut to keep everything from spilling out if you forget to zip it back up. I'm still doing some research on leather and wax canvas bags.
Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 10 - (Amazon)

I don't have very many cases but there are a few that have caught my eye. Check out the HardGraft Box Camera Case, Ona also has some great stuff here on Amazon. My buddy has a few of their bags and I love them.
Flashes For The X100T
Fuji makes a few flashes but I'll list the two compacts since that's sort of the purpose of this camera. 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.
Fujifilm EF-X20 - (Amazon)

Instax Portable Printer - (Amazon) - Something you can easily fit in your bag. It syncs straight to your camera without a hassle and can print instant film on the fly. Cool for parties or something where you want to leave behind some retro prints.
Calibration & Color
Something I don't talk enough about on this site is color calibration and how important it is. I have several different monitors all hooked up to different computers and I edit photos on all of them. Without properly calibrated monitors there is no way of knowing if what I'm looking at is remotely accurate since every monitor will give a different look.
Having a proper tool to calibrate your monitor is probably one of the most important things a photographer could have besides a camera, and any photographer that is semi serious about their craft should seriously consider investing in one.
There are two calibrators I use. The i1 Display Pro, and the Spyder. I've been using the Spyder3Elite at the work place for the edit bays, at home I use the i1 Display Pro. Personally I've enjoyed using the i1 Display Pro more, it's quick and more consistent than the Spyder. However, I was using an older Spyder and I believe the new ones have come a long way and are much improved.
Either way, both do a great job at calibrating your monitors and you will be amazing at the difference it makes. It obviously won't make an old junk monitor suddenly a great monitor, but it does do wonders in balancing out the colors and contrast even with my cheap monitors.
As a side note, Apple Cinema Display and iMac are not exempt. We ordered something like eight Cinema Displays at the work place and once all hooked up, they all gave noticeably different looks. I was very surprised.
X-Rite i1 Display Pro - (Amazon)
I ordered the bundle that comes with a color checker. You probably won't need one unless you know you need one. Otherwise the one I've listed here works great.
Datacolor Spyder5Pro - (Amazon)
There are several version of the Datacolor. The Elite, Pro and Express. As far as I know, there is no difference in hardware, it's all about the software. So I think you could potentially start off with the Express and if you need more functionality you could upgrade to the pro.
There are really only a few cleaning items you need for this camera since it's a fixed lens.
To clean the lens I always use Microfiber cleaning cloths. I don't use lens pens or any cleaning solution. They always seem to leave a strange residue and you don't want to ruin the coatings on your lens.
I go through Microfiber cleaning cloths like their socks. Buying them in bulk is the way to go and this pack is actually really nice.
(6 Pack) MagicFiber® Premium Microfiber Cleaning Cloths - (Amazon)
I always keep a Rocket Air around to blast out any dust from those small hard to reach edges. Q-tips can be nice. I'm sure you have some in your bathroom so I'm not going to list Q-Tips on a camera accessory page.

Fuji X100T The Specs
The specs haven't really changed a whole lot. Fuji hasn't mentioned anything new about the sensor, just a new processor which will increase the overall performance of the camera.
