A compiled list of all the best accessories and gear for the Fujifilm X-E3. Mostly also compatible with the X-E2 and X-E2s. Almost all the products and brands listed here I’ve personally used on various Fujifilm cameras and only list the best stuff I’ve been able to find.
If you find something better that I’ve missed, let me know and I’ll try it out. While this list has been updated for the Fujifilm X-E3, I’ll keep some information for the E-E2 and X-E2s since those cameras are still pretty popular.

Fujifilm X-E3 Essential Accessories
A screen protector might be one of the single most important things you can buy for your Fuji X-E2 or X-E3. I use the Expert Shields on most of my cameras and they come in a few different types. Crystal Clear, Anti-Glare and Glass.
Crystal Clear and Anti-Glare eventually will come off after a few years. I’ve never had a hard glass protector come off, but they do chip away along the edges.

Best Memory Cards For The Fujifilm X-E3
I’ve put the Fujifilm X-E3 through a memory card speed test where I test all the most popular memory cards in-camera.
Use these guides to find the best memory cards for your Fuji X-E3 or X-E2s.
Fujifilm X-E3 Batteries
Official Fujifilm NP-W126S Battery
The Fuji X-E3 comes with these new NP-W126S batteries.
Wasabi Third-Party Batteries
Wasabi has released some new batteries that match the specs of the NP-W126s for the new cameras like the X-E3, X-Pro2 and X-T3. Wasabi really makes the best third-party batteries and they’ve been around for a pretty long time now.
Fujifilm X-E3 | Body Accessories
While most of the accessories are interchangeable between the X-E3 and X-E2, the thumb grips are not.
Lensmate makes the best thumb rests for the X-series cameras. They have very nice precision and are very high quality. They are also available in silver.

Fujifilm X-E2 Lensmate Thumb Grip – Amazon
This is the official Fujifilm terminal cover kit for the X-T1, but the hot shoe cover works for all their cameras.
Soft Release Button
There are a few things to keep in mind. There are cheaper ones and then there are the Lensmate ones. I have both and here is my consensus. The cheaper ones will vibrate around and fall off when you’re not paying attention. The Lensmate ones have this built-in rubber washer. So when you screw the soft-release button in, it forms a tighter seal keeping it from vibrating loose.
Check out more colors and options here.
Grips & Cases
If you’re looking for a few nice leather cases I’ve tried quite a few on my various Fujifilm cameras. I really like the Gariz cases, but I also think the Kaza Deluxe cases are a great deal since you can also get them bundled with a nice leather strap.
Here are your best options.
Fujifilm X-E2 / X-E2s
Fujifilm Metal Hand Grip For The X-E3 / X-E2s
The Fujifilm metal hand grip is really nice. I had one for my X-Pro2 for a while and they do the job. However, they will add a bit of noticeable weight to the camera which may or may not bother some people.

Fujifilm X-E2s Metal Grip – Amazon Made by Fujifilm
J.B. Camera Designs Pro Bamboo Grip
J.B. Cameras grips are a lot of fun. I’ve owned a few of them in the past and always thought they were unique and cool. Very high-quality handcrafted feel.

Fujifilm X-E2 | X-E3 Lenses
I keep an updated list of all the available lenses that can be easily purchased for the Fujifilm X-E2.
See the Fujifilm X-Mount Lens List.
Fuji X-Mount 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 differently than a real macro lens that still has infinity focus.

Fujifilm MCEX-16 Macro Extension Tube – Amazon
There are two I recommend. The Gariz Strap and the Gordy’s. I have to Gariz straps. They last forever and are made with real leather. But the Gordy’s are American made and look a little cooler.
I use the Gordy’s on my Fuji and the Gariz on my Sony. Note: The Gariz ships from Korea and it literally takes 2-3 weeks for it to get to the US. Gordy’s will come in a few days.
Gariz Genuine Leather Camera Wrist Strap – Amazon
The Fuji strap that comes with your camera is good enough, but it’s really nice to connect to something which will allow you to easily take it on and off of your camera without a hassle. That’s what this is for. I love mine. I ordered it during their original Kickstarter.

There is a new C-Loop Mini now as well – Amazon
(6 Pack) MagicFiber® Premium Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
I often keep an updated fresh supply of Microfiber cloths in my bag. Eventually, these will get oil and lint on them an no longer clean effectively. This 6 pack is a great bag as it will provide you with enough microfiber cloths for a long time. (Don’t use these on your sensor)
Rocket Air Blasters
Air blasters are pretty handy, it’s always better to clean your lens and sensor with air when you can. Touching them is always risky. I have the medium size as it gives me more thrust than the small. But if you have a small camera bag, the smaller size might be better for you.
Rocket Air Small – Amazon
Rocket Air Medium – Amazon
Sensor Brush APS-C
Sensor brushes are the best way to clean your sensor without using the wet method. I always keep one of these in my travel bag or bring one when I know I’ll be shooting in a situation where I’ll be changing lenses. They are extremely handy.
The Mover 20 will allow you to fit a Fujifilm X-E3 and a lens or two no problem. It has a zipper to keep everything secure but when you pull your camera out, the top flap automatically shuts with a magnet connector to give you a little bit of security.
The Mover 10 will still be big enough for an X-E2 and a small lens.
You could fit the X-E3 in the Mover 5 if you have a pancake lens, like the Fujifilm 27mm. Otherwise, the X-E3 will not fit in the Mirrorless Mover 5.

Fuji X-E3 | X-E2 Accessories Conclusion
The Fujifilm X-E3 and X-E2 really are great cameras. With a few added accessories they can be customized to your style and personal taste. As I find more accessories I will continue to update this list and one day I might even start including more tripods and bags as I have quite a collection of bags now.
