A list of a all the best Lens Hoods, Screen Protectors, Cases, Straps, Thumb Grips, Soft Shutters and more. For the Fujifilm X-T10 and X-T20.
These are the accessories I use on most of my cameras that also work great for the X-T10 and X-T20.
The Essentials – Batteries, Screen Protectors & Memory Cards
Fujifilm X-T1 & X-T20 Batteries
There are a lot of options for third party batteries for the X-T10 and X-T20. There is also a new version of the NP-W126 battery called the NP-W126s.
Fuji Li-ion Battery NP-W126 1280mAh
These are the original NP-W126 batteries. The original batteries still work for the X-T10 or X-T20.
Fujifilm NP-W126S 1260mAh
New & more efficient while also allowing more current to be drawn without raising temperatures with a totally different discharge profile. These are the batteries Fujifilm is shipping with their cameras now although the new discharge profile is not needed by the X-T10 or X-T20.
Wasabi (2-Pack) w/charger 1450mAh
I’ve been using these as a third-party alternative in all my Fujifilm cameras and they’ve been working great. This is probably your best deal.
Green Extreme GX-NP-W126 1260MAh
I also have one of these and it also works well.
Fuji X-T10 & X-T20 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 the same as the X-T20 so any screen you buy for either camera will work, however, sometimes they are listed separately. So I think this could have something to do with touch screen since the X-T20 has touchscreen now. I’ll also list them separately just to be safe. I use the JJC on my X100F, it’s really nice, and they say it should work with the X-T20 touch screen without any problems.

Best SD Memory Cards For The X-T10 & X-T20
The X-T10 & X-T20 cameras use UHS-I SD memory cards, nothing special here.

Fuji X-T10 & X-T20 Soft Shutter Release
Fujifilm did something on the X-T10 & X-T20 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 makes the best thumb rest for the X-T10 and X-T20.
Grips And Cases
Leather Cases and Grip Cases
There are a few great cases and grips for the X-T10. There are some coming for the X-T20.
- Gariz X-T10 Half Cases – Amazon
- Fujifilm X-T10 Leather Half Case – Amazon
- J.B. Camera Design Pro Wood Grip – X-T10 – Amazon
- Fujifilm X-T10 Metal Hand Grip – Amazon
Kaza Deluxe has a few nice cases for the X-T20 and X-T10. You can also get them bundled with a strap which is a pretty good deal.
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.
LeicaTime Straps – (Leicatime.com)
Tap & Dye make a decent strap. LeicaTime might be better for the price.
Tap & Dye – (TapandDye.com)
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-T10 & X-T20 Lenses And Lens Accessories
I keep an updated list of all the available lenses that can be easily purchased for the Fujifilm cameras.
See the Fujifilm X-Mount Lens List.
Fujifilm 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 from 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.
Fujifilm X-T10& X-T20 Camera Accessories Conclusions
The Fujifilm X-T10 & X-T20 has already been very well received and there is already a lot of great gear you can buy for this camera. With just a few items you can enhance the cameras comfort and usability as well as protect it for the years to come.
