The Fujifilm X-T3 is available for order and it looks like it launched with quite a few accessories. This a list of all the best accessories for the X-T3, updated as more come of course. As always, I’ll go though, try out anything new and do individual reviews to find which accessories and gear are the best for the Fujifilm X-T3.
Fujifilm X-T3 Pre-Order
Fujifilm X-T3 | Camera Essentials
Best Screen Protectors For The Fujifilm X-T3
We will need new screen protectors for the X-T3 because of the new touch interface. It looks like it might take the same screen protectors as the X-H1 but I haven’t been able to confirm yet.
Best Batteries For The Fujifilm X-T3
The Fujifilm XT3 takes the same batteries as the XT2, but because of the more efficient quad processor in the T3 we will see a 15% improvement to battery life. Some are happy by this, some are not. Either way, if you need more battery life you can get three batteries total with a vertical grip.
This is the official Fujifilm X-T3 battery. It has a power rating of 1260mAh and has a CIPA rating of 390 shots in the Fujifilm X-T3.
Wasabi (2-Pack) 1450mAh
Wasabi has upgraded their NP 126 batteries to match the specs of the newest Fujifilm batteries. Wasabi is a California based company that uses the best Japanese cells. They are the best third-party battery maker with the best reputation. There is no reason to buy anything else.
Fujifilm BC-W126s Battery Charger
For the Fujifilm X-T3 and the NP-W126S batteries, there is a brand new charger. The BC-W126s. I’m not sure how it’s different and it’s likely the old charger will work fine since it’s what the X-T2 shipped with.
Fujifilm X-T3 Vertical Grip
You can actually use the vertical grip as a dual battery charger when you don’t have it equipped on the camera. It said it can charge two batteries in 2 hours. That is incredible because it takes 10 hours to charge 2 Sony batteries. Huge plus here by having an AC wall adapter included with the battery grip. I love the grip, but it’s not for everyone and rather expensive. I am not sure if you order the X-T3 with the grip if you get all three batteries like you did with the X-H1. That would be nice. But if you do order the bundle through BHphoto, it’s -$130. Total battery shots with the grip will be 1170.
Recommended Memory Cards For The Fujifilm X-T3
I’ll do a full test with all the best memory cards when I get the X-T3. The new processor might eliminate all the issues we saw before with lockups for bad batteries and memory cards since all the tasks are now threaded with the quad processor.
You’ll want to stick with these three brands until I can confirm other great new brands like ProGrade and Lexar work properly in this new model. Delkin is also a great option.
Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-II
Sandisk Extreme Pro is the best card for Fujifilm cameras. They have no issues and I’ve never heard of any lockups with this card.
Sony G UHS-II
Believe it or not, Sony actually puts out really nice memory cards and they work great in Fujifilm cameras.
Toshiba cards are amazing. The UHS-II cards often outperform even Sandisk, but they aren’t that popular in America. If you’re in a country where Toshiba are easy to get (like Japan) then they make a great alternative to Sandisk.
Fujifilm X-T3 Camera Body Accessories
Fujifilm X-T3 Metal Hand Grip
For those with larger hands that want more grip on the Fujifilm X-T3 without buying a leather case or the vertical grip, the metal hand grip by Fujifilm is very nice and very high quality. It’s all metal though so it will add some extra weight to the camera. I had one for my X-Pro2 I used for a while and it really gives you something to hold onto.
Leather Half Cases
Fujifilm X-T3 Leather Half Case
These are really nice leather cases by Fujifilm. I’m really happy they went back to the red velvet interior lining. It adds a nice flare in the spots where you can see it.
I’ll have more cases listed soon. I’m sure Kaza will give us something really cool. Maybe Lim’s will finally make a case for Fujifilm as well.
Fujifilm X-T3 Miscellaneous
Fujifilm X-T3 Terminal Protector Cover Kit
There is finally a new cover kit for the X-T series. I’ve bought a few of these mainly for the hot shoe covers that I sometimes lose.
Fujifilm X-T3 Remote Shutter Release
For those new to Fujifilm you may not need this for landscape photography because Fujifilm cameras let you set shutter times to whatever you want. There is no 30″ limit like in most cameras. So you can pop on 10-stop ND, do a 2 second countdown and a 2 minute shutter or longer. The X-T3 also has a built in intervalometer. It will however be great for those shooting Lighting or Fireworks where you need to have the camera in Bulb mode. Studio macro / product photographers like these as well at it reduces any risk of moving the camera.
Fujifilm Speed Lights / Camera Flashes
I’m only going to recommend one flash . The Godox TT685F. If you want to see all the best flashes check out the Fujifilm X-T2 accessories page. There is a nice list going there.
The Goddox TT685F is such a good flash and it does everything you could ever need. It’s also a really good value.
The Godox TT685F is a TTL flash that is without a doubt the best bang for the buck speedlite for Fujifilm. This is also the only unit that has +- 5-stop of exposure comp with HSS. Build quality is good, but the instruction manual sucks.
Godox X1TF Transmitter
The Godox X1TF Trasitter is for the Godox speedlights. It takes 2xAA batteries and has everything you need to get you started using your TT685F. Some complain that you need to be more than 3 feet away for the speedlight for consistent performance. I haven’t had issues yet.
Godox Xpro-F Transmitter
The latest transmitter for Godox Speedlights. The XPro-F has a larger display for easier operation and a few more options and controls.
Must Have Fujifilm X-T3 Accessories | Bottom Line
Fujifilm released the X-T3 with a lot of great accessories already, including the leather case. I’ll continue to update this page as more accessories from third-party manufacturers roll in.
