If you have a keen interest in photography, then you probably own a Fujifilm X-T1 by now. Fully-loaded features on a compact body which is lighter than your typical professional DLSR have earned this camera the affections of discerning photographers around the world. We cut through the crowd of official and unofficial accessories to give you our list of the five very best products that improve the Fujifilm X-T1.

1. HandlePod

 For those of us who enjoy long exposures, but don’t particularly fancy lugging conventional tripods around with us everywhere we go, the HandlePod is an excellent alternative. It’s a simple camera mount that you can brace by hand against anything sturdy like a tree trunk or a railing. It comes with an elastic cord, so that you can tie your mounted camera in place if you need to. The HandlePod is light, intuitive and affordable, making it a great option for travel and photography bloggers.

2. Fujifilm X-T1 Vertical Battery Grip

This official Fujifilm product simultaneously gives you enough power for a full day of shooting and extra grip to improve stabilisation. It’ll increase the size and weight of your camera, but it’s an excellent option to have if you are working to a deadline and don’t have time to mess around changing batteries. Some photographers might also find that they like the feel of a bit more bulk and sturdiness to their camera too.

3. Camera Screen Protector

 If you’re planning on heading out into the wild to do some shooting, you’ll want to protect your camera screen from bangs and scratches with a pre-cut Fujifilm X-T1 screen protector. It’s important to choose a brand with a no-bubble guarantee, otherwise you might find you can’t get a good look at your previews. Attaching the product is the most important step, find a humid, dust-free environment and wipe your camera down carefully with a microfibre cloth for best results.

4. Fujifilm RR-90 Remote Release

Another official accessory for the X-T1, this wired shutter release is extremely useful for tripod, time lapse and long exposure photography. Easily plug it into the camera and half-press for focus or full press for exposures. The release button can be locked in place for long exposures in bulb mode. It works with all Fuji X series cameras, so if you have a couple at home this accessory is all the more tempting.

5. Fujifilm EF-42 Shoe Mount Flash

Another great accessory that works with all Fuji X series cameras, this is the most powerful Fuji flash on the market. It’s lightweight, and comes with adjustable light output down to 1/64 power, as well as an auto-zoom that automatically adjusts to the length of the lens. The head tilts and swivels 90° vertically, 180° to the left, and 120° to the right giving you lots of options for bounce-flash lighting.
