A list of 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.

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.

Fujifilm X-T10 & 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. These batteries have a completely different discharge profile than the older model. These are the batteries Fujifilm is shipping with their cameras now.
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.
Fujifilm BC-W126 Battery Charger
The official battery charger from Fujifilm for the NP-W126. It will charge a battery in 150 minutes. I prefer to use this with a right angles wall plug adapter instead of the cable that comes with.
Right Angle Wall Plug Adapter
I like to use these right angle wall plug adapters instead of the cable that comes with the BC-W126 battery charger. It makes everything more compact.
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.
If you want to find the fastest memory cards for your XT10 or XT20 then check out the speed tests below.
Fuji X-T10 & X-T20 Soft Shutter Release
Fujifilm did something on the X-T10 & X-T20. They’ve allowed for a soft shutter release.
These are awesome and I use them on my X100T, here is what I use.
– 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. You can also find a bunch made from wood here: BHphoto.
Lensmate makes the best thumb rest for the X-T10 and X-T20.

Fujifilm X-T20 | Grips And Cases
Leather Cases and Grip Cases
There are a couple great cases and grips for the X-T10 and X-20.
Gariz XT10 / XT20 Half Cases
Gariz makes a really leather half case for the X-T20. It allows for battery access as well as memory card access. Because of the metal base plate these also work very well on a tripod. I’ve owned several of these for various cameras and have never been let down.
Fujifilm BLC-XT10 – X-T10 & X-T20 Leather Half Case
The official Fujifilm leather half case. Fits both the X-T20 and X-T10 and allows you to access the battery and memory cards without removing the case.
J.B. Camera Design Pro Wood Grip – X-T10 X-T20
J.B. Camera Designs wood grip with base plate. Fits both the X-T10 and X-T20. J.B. also guarantees their grips for life. One thing I really like about these grips, is they provide a little bit more weight and balance to the bottom of the camera so that when you set the camera down with a lens, it doesn’t tip forward as easily.
Fujifilm X-T10 Metal Hand Grip
I was using one of these on my X-Pro 2 for a little while. They are built really well. It’s made of metal and is solid. But it does add a bit of weight to the camera compared to some of the wood or synthetic grips by JB Camera Designs.
Kaza Deluxe X-T20 Leather Cases
Kaza 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. I believe the case is the same for the X-T10 and the X-T20 but they just put them on different pages. So I’ll link you to both. These are probably my favorite cases. They ship from Hong Kong so give it about three weeks to arrive to the USA.

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 – Luigicases.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.

This is the basic list of camera cleaning supplies, essentially must have items.
Check out my guide to cleaning your camera sensor for more great accessories and cleaning tips.
6-Pack Magic Fiber Cleaning Cloths
Having enough micro fiber cleaning cloths is essential. Eventually they collect body oil, dirt, grease and no longer clean lenses efficiently. If you shot a lot near water you’re cloths will go bad even quicker. That’s why I recommend the 6 pack.
Rocket Air Blaster
Rocket Air Blasters are essential. They’re great for cleaning lenses and UV filters or even the sensor between lens changes.
Rocket Air Small – Amazon
Rocket Air Medium – Amazon
Sensor Brush APS-C
Sometimes when the Rocket Air isn’t cutting it and you need to clean the sensor on your X-T20 or X-T10, the cleaning brush is one of the best ways to go about it. I carry one of these in my camera bag whenever I travel.
Fujifilm XT20 Camera Bags
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 if you keep a smaller lens mounted to your camera
Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 10
The Mirrorless mover 10 is great for carrying an extra lens, or just the camera with a small lens, like the 27mm or the 18mm. These camera bags are nice because they come with a magnetic closing flap but also a durable zipper. Mine have held up for years.
Think Tank Mirrorless Mover 20
You can carry the X-T20 in the Mirrorless Mover 20 with a medium sized lens like the 23mm or the 35mm and have room for on extra medium sized lens. Also comes with a magnetic closing flap and a durable zipper.
Does the XT20 supports a HSS flash? The answer is yes. Fujifilm offers the X500 that is HSS capable but also Godox and Nissin make some nice speedlites that also support HSS. The Godox TT685F is the best bang for the buck when it comes to speedlights for the X-T20 and X-T10.
Full Size Flash
Fujifilm EF-X500 Flash
This is Fujifilms best flash. It’s weather resistant, TTL and HSS capable. It has a range of 24-105mm and a built-in diffuser can expand it to 20mm. (APS-C range is 16-70mm)
Tilts from -10 to 90° with left rotation of 135° and right of 180°.
Fujifilm EF-42 Flash
The EF-42 is Fujifilms best medium powered flash. It’s also TTL and HSS capable. Has a zoom range of 24-105mm and can be extended down to 20mm with the built-in diffuser panel. (APS-C range is 16-70mm) No HSS.
The Nissin flashes are actually very nice when used with Fujifilm cameras. This the biggest unit from Nissin and also the most capable. HSS and TTL capable and has the Nissin Air 2.4 GHz radio system. Zoom range of 24-200 and can be expanded to 16mm with the built-in diffuser panel. Flash duration – 1/800 – 1/30000 sec.
This is probably your best bang for the buck from Nissin. It’s a fantastic flash, smaller lighter and more powerful than the Fujifilm EF-42. HSS and TTL capable and has the built-in Nissin Air 2.4 GHz radio system. Range: 24-200mm or go down to 16mm with a diffuser panel. Flash duration – 1/800 – 1/20000 sec
The Nissin i40 is a smaller and more compact unit. Also TTL and HSS capabilities even with the X-T20.
Has a zoom range of 24 to 105mm. Or go down to 16mm with the built-in diffuser. The flash also has a small LED light for some very basic video work.
Metz mecablitz M400
The mecablitz M400 offers full TTL and HSS support, can tilt from -9 to 90° and rotation totaling a full 360°. Can zoom and cover 12 – 105 mm (Full Frame).
OLED display with great controls and takes 4 AA batteries.
TTL and HSS capable with built-in 2.4GHz radio system. Can be used as a radio TTL master/slave, or as an optical slave. Has an adjustable tilting head with a range from -7 to 90°. Rotates 270°.
Upgrade the firmware on both the flash and the Godox XT1-F radio trigger to get access to all the latest features.
The Godox TT685F is the all around best bang for the buck and is probably the best flash for any Fujifilm camera at this price. This unit is the only unit that can pull off +- 5-stop of exposure comp with HSS. Build quality is good, but there are almost no instructions.
Fujifilm EF-X20 TTL
A very TTL capable unit with a built-in wide-angle panel. Can work as a wireless slave unit as well.
Takes 2 AAA batteries but takes about 5 to 6 seconds to recycle.
The EF-20 is a fairly compact flash for the Fujifilm X-T2. It is TTL capable and takes 2 AA batteries and has a fairly slow recycle time of 4-5 seconds. It’s a nice run and gun flash with the tilting head.
HSS Flash Adapters
A good flash commander is required if you want to use a third party speedlight off camera.
Nissin Air Commander 1
Nissin Air 2.4GHz TTL transmission system for the Nissin Flashes. High Speed Sync / HSS is fully supported. Runs on two AAA batteries.
Nissin Air10s Commander
Nissin Air 2.4GHz TTL transmission system for the Nissin Flashes. Same features as the commander 1 but a bit more capable. High Speed Sync / HSS supported as well as TTL. Takes two AAA batteries.
Godox X1TF Transmitter
The Godox X1TF Transmitter for Fujifilm works with the Godox speed lights. This unit plus the GodoxTT685F is the best bang for the buck. HSS and TTL capable. The unit is fairly large and takes 2 x AA batteries. It also has a minimum consistent operation range of about 2-3 feet. It can work closer than 2-3 feet it just will occasionally not fire.
Fujifilm X-T10 & X-T20 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.
I’ve I missed cool that should be on this list let me know in the comments.
