I’ve tried out most of these accessories so if you have any questions be sure to leave a comment.
I’ve ordered the X100F in silver this time.

Best Batteries For The Fuji X100F
There are two different official Fujifilm batteries on the market, the older NP-W126, and the new NP-W126s.
The W126 batteries will work fine but you should be buying the new W126s batteries at this point. New cameras like the X-T3 will give you a notice when you use the older batteries so I have removed the old batteries from this list.
The new NP-W126S is more efficient while also allowing more current to be drawn without raising temperatures, which means it has a different discharge profile.
The X100F uses UHS-I memory cards. I’ve tested many of the most popular memory cards in the X100F to find which are the best. See the guide below.
Best Fujifilm X100F Screen Protectors
I like to use the Expert Shield screen protectors because they have several options and they are all very good. Anti-glare is one of the best ones and their glass and crystal clear protectors are also great.
Available At: 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. This kit comes with a hot shoe cover, sync terminal cap & vertical grip cover. Only the Hot Shoe Cover works on this camera.
I’ve seen some friends use other custom terminal protectors from Etsy. There aren’t as many good ones on 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 is pricey.
The thumb grips are nice to secure the camera in hand. This is one of those must-have accessories in my opinion. I’ve also written a complete review with sample photos of the Lensmate X100F thumb grip. Nobody makes a better thumb grip than Lensmate.
Lensmate Thumb Grip
Be sure to check around, but I’m not seeing these as available anymore.
Kaza Deluxe Leather Case & Strap
Grip & Leather Cases For The Fujifilm X100F
The X100f is an older camera now so a lot of the third-party case companies have discontinued or stopped producing cases for this camera. If you check Amazon or look through Kaza, there are still a few options out there.
Available At: KazaDeluxe
Kaza Deluxe has been my go-to leather case for my last few cameras. I have their case for my X-Pro 2 and love it. They come from Hong Kong and can sometimes take a few weeks to ship, but worth it. In my opinion, this is probably the best leather case for the X100f when you consider what you get for the price. Luigi cases are also nice but I think this is more reasonable.
The Fujifilm X100F has what looks to be the same lens as previous models which means the previous lens accessories should all work just fine.
Here is a list of some of the best UV filters and lens hoods for Fujifilm X100F
Filter And Hood Adapters
These are pretty important for a fixed-lens camera like this. You can’t just send your lens in for repair or replace it like you can with an interchangeable.
There are quite a few lens hoods out there now for the X100 series of cameras.
Fujifilm AR-x100 Adapter Ring 49mm+Lens Hood
The official Fujifilm Lens Hood and Adapter Ring are finally a reasonable price and are a great option. They used to be over $100. You can buy just the adapter ring for less money if you’re just looking for something to mount a UV filter too.
Fujifilm AR-X100 Adapter Ring 49mm
This is the UV adapter by Fujifilm. Looks great, and 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 and silver Available.
JJC LH-JX100 Lens Hood/Adapter Ring
A great lens hood, you can also remove the hood and use just the filter adapter. Like all these adapters, it takes a 49mm filter. I was using this lens hood on my X100T. Sometimes the hood itself will be slightly loose and have some play. However, my last version didn’t have this issue so maybe they improved the design.
If you want to use your camera flash this will block the light a little.
JJC LH-JX100 II Lens Hood/Adapter Ring
This time I ordered one of these, actually I ordered the above and they sent me this one. I like it a lot more because the lens hood folds in instead of fans out, which means you can still use your Fujifilm lens cap. This is better if you use the camera flash.
Check out my LH-JX100 II review.
Haog Square Metal Lens Hood Shade + Adapter
This is a pretty cool square metal lens hood. It’s a different style and a different look. If you use your OVF you will be able to see the very corner of it but it’s not really a big deal, what is a big deal is how much light this will block if you use your camera flash.
B+W 49mm Clear UV Haze with Multi-Resistant Coating
B+W is the best. Made by the Germans.
Hoya 49mm HMC UV Multi-Coated Slim Frame Glass Filter
Do you know who else makes good stuff? The Japanese.
Fujifilm X100F Lens Converters
There are two new lens converters available for the X100F. They’ll also work on the previous models. The big advantage of using the new lens converters with the X100F is that they now can notify the camera when they are screwed on. Previously you would have to go into the menus and manually tell the camera the lens converters are mounted. This would tell the camera to correct for distortion and vignetting. If you forgot to turn this on, or off, then you’re left with a weird image that’s corrected for the wrong lens.
Fujifilm TCL-X100 1.4x II Conversion 50mm Equivalent
These are very nice lens converters. It will give you a field of view of 50mm on your X100f. It’s a little heavy and bulky and ultimately will reduce image quality ever so slightly. So sharpness and micro-contrast will fall off a little bit and you may not even notice. You will also see the lens out of the OVF, which isn’t really a big deal because the image lines will automatically crop in to give you the correct 50mm view.
Fujifilm WCL-X100 Wide Conversion Lens 0.8x 28mm Equivalent
The wide-angle conversion lens gives you a crop down to 28mm. If you’re familiar with the 18mm pancake lens for Fujifilm’s X-Mount cameras, this gives you almost the same field of view as that lens. Like the 50mm conversion lens, you’ll get a slight reduction in overall image quality compared to the built-in lens of the X100F.
Both these adapters are very nice for expanding the capabilities of your X100F.
Fuji X100F With Hard Graft Slide Camera Wrist Strap
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 Genuine Leather Camera Wrist Strap
Available At: Amazon
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 beat up now 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
Available At: Gordyscamerastraps
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, whereas the Gariz feels a bit more China-made/mass-produced.
Hard Graft Slide Camera Wrist Strap
Available At: HardGraft
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
They’ve been discontinuing a lot of their camera straps. Get them while you can.
I’ve found some nice leather straps that would go very well with the Fuji X100F.
Some of them are a bit expensive but they are genuine leather and should last you a lifetime if you take care of them.
I have the Mover 20 so I can fit both my A7rIII and FujiX100F in a single case at the same time.
One of the features I 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.
Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 10
The Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 10 is a perfect snug little case for just the X100F. It fits the camera very nicely, and you can carry some extra memory cards and a USB charger.
Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20
The Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20 is a great option if you want to carry your X100F and a few of those conversion lenses. Or, throw in a few other things instead like a wallet, battery chargers, smartphone, etc.
Ona also has some great stuff you can find at Amazon. I haven’t used their bags so I can’t say too much about them.
Flashes For The X100F
Most of the compact Fujifilm flashes have now been discontinued.
Godox quickly filled this void with a nice compact flash. The Godox Lux Junior is not TTL, it does have a small light sensor but it’s best to control it manually. It’s fairly easy to use once you get used to it.
If you are looking for a retro-style flash that can work with any camera, you may want to try the Godox Lux Junior. It has a single pin on the hotshoe that can trigger the flash on any camera with an electronic hotshoe.
However, it does not have TTL compatibility with Fujifilm cameras, so you have to adjust the flash settings manually.
It uses 2 AAA batteries and has a decent power output, which is good for freezing the motion when you shoot street photography. It is much better than the built-in flash of the X100F.
Portable printers are a great way to break the ice when you want to take some shots of strangers. Ask to take their photos, print one out, and give them to them, as an instant friend. Then take some more.
There are 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 nice.
(6 Pack) MagicFiber® Premium Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
Available At: 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 an X100F camera accessory page.
Rocket Air Small
Available At: Amazon
I usually use these little rocket airs to clean my sensors and lenses. Since you’ll never see the sensor on your X100F, it becomes a nice little tool for cleaning your lens.
Best Accessories For The Fuji X100F | Conclusions
This is by far my favorite camera to customize and I’m finding myself always mixing and matching different accessories to give it a different look. While some accessories are better than others, some might work better for the look you are going for. This is especially true for lens hoods and soft shutters.
There is so much great stuff being made for the X100F and I’m finding it difficult to keep up, so if you find anything you can’t live without, let me know and I’ll try it out and add it to the list.
