New Official X10 Ergonomic Kit *pics inside*
Aug 23, 2012

So you guys probably know that Fuji released the "X10 Ergonomic Kit" recently. I nabbed one of the last ones on Amazon and just got it today. Let me tell you, it has helped SO MUCH.

I know there was speculation about this, but the "Thumb Grip" IS in fact the Match Technical EP-6S which was made for the X10. It says so on the back, lol. I love it. THIS is the tiny little piece that jacks up the price of the whole kit. This alone is $118 on ebay at the cheapest (The official X10 kit is $129 on Amazon).

Here's the Thumbs Up grip, which FINALLY solves the problem of WHERE DO I PUT MY THUMB?!?!? That rubber grip they have off to the side is in such a weird spot. This is miles better and it fits perfectly, unlike the HorrusBennu TG-1 which you have to screw in and then put in a weird spot for it to work. Sometimes you do get what you pay for. This is one of those times.

The kit also comes with a soft shutter release button to screw into your shutter release button. THIS IS AMAZING. It's such a tiny thing, but it works wonders for making the camera easier. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and anything that helps ease pressure on my joints is greatly appreciated.

I believe it is the black mini Abrahammson softrelease that you can buy for $22 here:

Here's the Thumbs Up and the softrelease attached to my X10

I hope that helps! I know the kit is pricey, but I think it was worth it. Again, as a girl with RA, any little bit of ergonomic help is appreciated. The Thumbs Up grip is amazing for hand-holding sloowww shots. I love it!

Amazon is backordered on the Ergonomics Kit, but you can buy it from Popflash here, although it might not come in a fancy official Fujifilm box. It's also $10 cheaper than Amazon here:

If anyone is interested, the wrist strap I'm using is the EzFoto leather wrist strap that I got on Amazon here for $7.99:
