Here are 5 accessories we think will make you fall in love with the X70 all over again

The Fujifilm X70 is a mighty fine, capable compact camera. And as with all good cameras, accessories can further enhance the experience of using it. Here are 5 accessories we think will make you fall in love with the X70 all over again.

1: Soft shutter release

Almost all of Fujifilm’s X series cameras come with a threaded soft release, and this means that you can screw one of these small soft release on it. According to some users, this gives them a better gauge between the half press to autofocus and the full press to trigger the shutter. It also prevents dust and dirt from getting into the tiny hole.

Most soft releases are available in generic colors, and Fujifilm has its own branded ones available. Alternatively, it’s not hard to source for them online. You can check out here for some really affordable ones.

2: Thumbgrip

Photographers who have larger hands may find operating X series cameras a tad clumsy, as they have to try and hold the petite frames. To counter this, you can consider getting a thumbgrip which sits on the hotshoe. Once it has been installed, you will notice a better grip on the camera, and overall functionality to improve as well.

3: Leather hand/ shoulder strap
