Just picked up a used X100F and was wondering what you all have for cases, straps, brackets, etc... that you think were worth the investment. This is my first RF style camera and I feel rather naked without an l-bracket, case, strap, filter holder and all of the other odds and ends that I’m used to. This is going to be for everyday carry and having in my vehicle. Would love to see pictures of your cameras!

Any particular grip? Noticed reviews of various grips relating to set screws and fit. My Olympus is constantly losing eyecups, so I’ve started to buy 3-4 at a time. Afraid this will be the same issue...

I use an LM thumgrip. It changes it into a comfortable one hand grip camera, very secure in the hand. I also like to replace the shutter button with something else more attractive and bigger, different shape. I did concave purple wood.

I love how personal the X100 series lets you get and there's a lot of 3rd party stuff for them.

Strap depends if you want a wrist one or a neck one.

Very best,

i hear/see a lot of things about changing or adding to the shutter release on these and other Fuji range-finder cameras...

is there a specific reason for all this? are they painful to shoot with? hard to access i.e. too small/low to the body? difficult to push?

just curious because i never hear of anything like this for any other camera...

For me it's just personal. Old range finders and some older cameras used to have the ability to unscrew the shutter release and replace it with another one. That went away for a few decades. Now you can get this camera, and it can be a range finder, and replace the shutter button again like classic cameras (such as unscrewing it off so you can use a cable shutter release to do long exposure without touching it, manually). It's just another level of personalization.

Very best,

Must have accessories? None.

For me x100f if is exactly what you said, an everyday carry. Adding bells and whistles to it makes relatively little sense. Unless of course if you're just doing it for the fun of it. It is a compact camera after all.

The only "accessory" I'm using is my top loader bag, that I use to carry all of my cameras. Though I might get a strap at some point so that I can leave the bag at home.

I added one because it allows me to actuate the shutter with less shake and use slower shutter speeds handheld, since I'm usually carrying only the camera and no tripod. This was handheld:

Very cool idea. That's amazing for 1/8, even if you were supported against something. I'm sold!

Thanks, it was completely unsupported.

This.

I sometimes feel like I'm the only person who hates the feel of those thumb grips everyone loves. One came on one of my cameras and I took it off day one... I never got the gripes of those who say the grips are too small, the cameras are so light the grip has never bothered me.

:lol:

The only must have for me though is a decent lens hood, I use one of these https://www.amazon.com …68062160&s=gate​way&sr=8-4 (external link)

I'm also partial to a basic leather neck strap, which when I'm actively shooting gets wrapped around my wrist. I use this one on the X-Pro2 and it's my favorite https://www.amazon.com …_asin_title?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

The strap on my X100T is a generic brown leather one, it's OK, but the strap I linked above is much more comfortable and grippy (which is good since I almost always use it over one shoulder). I've got a wrist strap on my X-T1 which is also nice, but I prefer the neck/shoulder straps.

Mine.

-Cheap soft shutter button - $7 or so on Amazon, and came with two. One of them concave, the other convex. Some come without the rubber washer, and you want the washer.
-JJC hood was $12 on amazon, and another $5 or so for a 58mm cap that clips on to the hood. I don't like filters, and I think it looks cool. It does, however, make the camera noticeably bigger. My concern was in keeping the lens free of scratches. The hood has some dings on it these days.
-The hot shoe cover came off a Nikon N65 I bought - it's now my brother's camera.
-The strap is from Gordy's Straps in Seattle. I have 4 different ones now, but you have a lot of options as they are made to order and are roughly $30.

I carry mine in Domke bags, so I just wear them around my neck like a tourist.

I rarely leave home without it.
