Fuji adds grips, grip strap, and extended eye-cup accessories for X-T1
First up are a pair of grips for the X-T1: the MHG-XT Small and Large. The former is more like an adapter than anything else, as all of the other compatible grips can be attached to it (including the battery grip). The MHG-XT Large is just what it sounds like: an even larger grip than the currently available MHG-XT. Both grips have enough spacing to allow for use of larger lenses and allow easy access to the battery/memory card compartment. They also have flanges for Arca-Swiss adapters built right in.
For those who want a more substantial eye-cup, Fuji now offers the EC-XT extended eyecup. The larger design keeps ambient light out, while the soft rubber material provides a comfortable fit.
All X-series owners can enjoy the last accessory: the GB-001 grip strap. This wrist strap lets you hold the camera with one hand, and you can also attach a shoulder strap to the main lug, for the best of both worlds.
These accessories will be available in May with pricing to be announced later.
Fujifilm launches new accessories for the FUJIFILM X-T1
Fujifilm is pleased to announce the launch of a series of new accessories for its premium mirrorless X-T1 camera; two handgrips, a grip strap, an extended eyecup, and a coverkit for its sync terminal, hot shoe and vertical battery grip terminal.
1) X-T1 Handgrips: MHG-XT Large and MHG-XT Small*
Key product features:
- Integral design and reliable components
The handgrip consists of a base-plate milled from aluminum block and a grip which is designed to integrate perfectly with the camera body. Its precision design shows in its stylish silhouette which provides a firm hold, and robust feel.
* The MHG-XT Large sports a larger grip than the standard MHG-XT, while the MHG-XT Small is a base-only model, to be coupled with one of four grips available, including the vertical battery grip VG-XT1, according to usage and preference.
- Optimum balance with sufficient clearance from the base of the camera body when using a large-diameter lens
The handgrip offers an additional 8mm clearance from the base of the camera body so as to prevent large-diameter lenses such as XF23mm or XF55-200mm from interfering with a tripod head.
- Access to the battery / memory card slot or to connect a DC coupler when the handgrip is attached.
There is no need to remove the MHG-XT Large or MHG-XT Small handgrip to open the camera’s battery cover, ensuring speedy access to the battery or memory card even while the handgrip is mounted on a tripod. Users can also connect a DC Coupler (designed for this series) while the handgrip is attached, to feed power to the camera during time-lapse or long-exposure photography.
- Enhanced operability while using a tripod
The handgrip has a tripod socket, carefully positioned so that the rotation axis of the tripod is aligned with the optical axis of the lens to ensure panning and framing free of rotation displacement. The base also features a 38mm-wide protrusion that acts as a quick-release dovetail plate for use with a dovetail tripod mount.
2) X series Grip strap: GB-001
The grip strap enhances the camera’s hold, allowing users to carry the camera firmly with just one hand. The camera can be also fitted with a shoulder strap at the same time.
- X-T1 with MHG-XT / MHG-XT Large / MHG-XT Small / VG-XT1
- X-E2 with MHG-XE / HG-XE1
- X-Pro1 with HG-XPro1 / MHG-XPro1
- X-E1 with MHG-XE / HG-XE1
- X-M1 with HG-XM1
- X-A1 with HG-XM1
3) X-T1 Extended eyecup: EC-XT
The dome-shaped eyecup effectively shields light, making it easier to see the viewfinder. The soft material also improves the fit for users shooting with the naked eye or with glasses.
4) X-T1 Cover kit: CVR-XT
The replacement cover kit contains three covers – one for the sync terminal, another for the hot shoe and another for the vertical battery grip terminal ensuring users can easily replace any of these covers if lost.
The products will be available from end May 2014 approx. The UK SRPs will be issued closer to the availability date.
