Best Accessories For The Fuji X-Pro2

Fujifilm X-Pro 2 Accessories

Like the X100T the Fujifilm X-Pro2 has been setup to be very customizable. Accessories like thumb grips and soft shutters that don’t typically work well on DLSR style cameras work great on these rangefinder style cameras.

Although most third-party accessory companies haven’t started modeling their designs to fit this camera yet, there still are some staples that will work great and I’ll start there.

Best Screen Protectors

I’ve already found a company selling screen protectors for the X-Pro 2, and they happen to be my favorite. I would definitely by a screen protector for this camera simply because I did for my XT1 and it already has a huge scratch across it. You can never be too careful. I also don’t think these screens are made with gorilla glass or anything special like that.

Batteries For The X-Pro 2

The best batteries for the X-Pro 2 are going to be the Fujifilm brand batters. But there are some great third-party batteries as well and I’ll list a few of those for those who are looking to save a buck.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 uses the same battery as the X-T1. The NP-W126 Li-Ion Battery Pack. So if you already have batteries for your X-T1, maybe you won’t need anymore.

Memory Cards

The Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is one of the fastest cameras I’ve ever tested when it comes to memory card write speeds with the UHS-II cards.

It features a dual memory card slot with slot 1 taking UHS-II cards and slot 2 taking UHS-I cards.

The best sd memory card you can buy in terms of performance is the Lexar 2000x.

For more info and configuration options, see the Best Memory Card For The X-Pro 2.

 

 

Terminal Protectors / Hotshoe Cover

The X-Pro 2 comes with a terminal protector already, but if you lose yours you can use the hotshoe cover that comes in this kit.

Soft Release Button

I would definitely consider getting a soft shutter release for your X-Pro 2. Even if you don’t go with the more expensive Lensmate brand, they are still really nice.

I’ve had the 10mm Neewer and the Lensmate. Although I like the lensmate more, both are great for a few reasons; They help you find your shutter button when you’re looking through the OVF, and they make pressing the button a little easier.

 

Neewer Soft Shutters

The neewer soft shutters are pretty cheap, both in cost and in build quality. Maybe consider buying the 4-pack since these fall off very easily.

Lensmate

The Lensmate Soft Shutter is probably the best one for the X-Pro 2. It has a rubber washer that when tightened helps keep the shutter from vibrating loose.

X-Pro 2 Thumb Grips

The thumb grips are still in production but are now ready for pre-order

X-Pro 2 Body Grips

There are a few body grips not for the X-Pro 2. The Offical Fujifilm grip, which looks really nice. I especially like that it doesn’t add a lot of bulk to the bottom of the camera like most other grips. Also, J.B. Camera design has finished one of their grips.

X-Pro 2 Leather Cases

There are a few great leather half cases now available for the X-Pro 2.

Kaza-Deluxe Leather Case – Kaza-Deluxe.com – The Kaza case is now available. They made by far my favorite case for the X100T. Best bang for the buck in terms of quality and craftsmanship. See Kaza-Deluxe X-Pro2 Review.

LeicaTime Handmade Leather Case – LeicaTime.com – He makes some of the nicest cases out there, but at a price.

Kenjileather Case – Kenjileather.com –  I’ve yet to try one of these but they are popular and some people love them.

X-Pro 2 Camera Flash


 

Unlike the XT1, the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 does not come with a flash. There are several flashes Fujifilm makes in a few different sizes and several third-party flashes.

Camera Straps


 

Wrist Straps

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.

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.

 

 

Hand Straps

I’ll have photos of these on camera soon.

 

Gariz Cam​era 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 a while. They do have that sort of mass-produced made in China feel to them, but they’re still very durable and well made.

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.

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

Full Strap

I’ve found some really nice leather straps that would go very well with the Fujifilm X-Pro 2

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.

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.

There is a new C-Loop mini that might work nice with the Fuji strap.

Cleaning Supplies


To clean the lenses 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 lenses.

I go through Microfiber cleaning cloths like socks. Buying them in bulk is the way to go and this pack is actually really nice.

I always keep a Rocket Air around to blast out any dust from those small hard to reach edges. Q-tips can be nice as well. I’m sure you have some in your bathroom so I’m not going to list Q-Tips on a camera accessory page.

Rocket Air Medium – (Amazon)

 

Sometimes I’ll find pieces of dust stuck to my sensor that will not come off with the Rocket Air. In this case I use the Sensor Brush. These work very well, but don’t expect miracles. They won’t remove fingerprints or anything like that.

Best Accessories For The X-Pro 2 | Conclusion


As I continue to collect and discover new accessories I’ll also continue to update this list. If you find anything cool worth listing, leave a comment or send me an email. 

For me The X-Pro 2 is such a great camera because it’s so customizable. It seems no two people have the same camera because they can all be configured differently with straps, leather cases, soft release buttons or thumb grips and that’s what makes the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 such an awesome camera.
