The X-T10 Grip

In my review and comparison, perhaps my biggest criticism with the camera was its grip, or lack thereof. This potential issue is easily addressed by way of a half case, or MHG-XT10 grip that also provides Arca Swiss tripod compatibility. Both maintain battery and SD card access, which is nice.

Historically, I haven’t been thrilled with Fuji’s grips, and have preferred to attach a Really Right Stuff L-plate for my Arca Swiss needs, but this is a camera where a little added grip would do wonders. On the other hand, if the grip on the X-T10 is too small for you and you’re considering an MHG-XT10, the price of your X-T10 is now $930 (USD), just $270 less than the price of an X-T1. Less than $300 gets you a grip you’ll be more comfortable with out of the box, superior build, weather sealing, better continuous shooting, etc.

If an X-T10 arrives in my home as an X-T1 owner already, it would be the sort of camera that would stay off the tripod for the most part, and this may be the first Fuji half case I test. Anyone want to send me a Luigi half case to compare?
