Fujifilm have announced a host of new accessories for the X-T1, X100/X100s and other cameras in the X-Series.
The new conversion lens offers Fujifilm’s extraordinary optical quality and delivers high image resolution, even at the F2.0 wide open aperture setting, while using a special HT-EBC multi-layer coating to minimize ghosting and flare, and retaining all the original optical characteristics of the X100 and X100S.
To use the TCL-X100, users should update the camera’s firmware (X100: ver2.10 or later /X100S: ver1.20 or later) which also allows the option to be selected via the function (Fn) button, and then select the ‘Tele- Conversion Lens’ option in the Fujifilm X100/X100S’s shooting menu.
The TCL-X100 is compatible with the X100/X100S’s hybrid viewfinder and enhances functionality by retaining the auto focusing speed and offering a 5.5” macro shooting distance. With the optical viewfinder (OVF) selected, icons showing the edge of the frame are displayed, while selecting the electronic viewfinder (EVF) gives users a 100% field of view.
The TCL-X100 has been designed to seamlessly blend with the look and feel of the X100/X100S, and is manufactured using the same materials, textures, colors and finishes as the X100/X100S.
For the X-T1, Fujifilm have released two new metal grips, a deeper eye-cup and a replacement covers kit.
The handgrip consists of a base-plate milled from aluminium 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.
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.

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.
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.
