Best Accessories for Fuji X-T30

Fuji X-T30 is an amazing mirrorless camera for amateur and enthusiast photographers and videographers. It has many of the features found on the more expensive X-T3, including the great 26MP sensor and excellent autofocus, but it also lacks some things like weather resistance, two UHS-II memory card slots and 4K video recording at 60 fps. However, not everyone needs these features and the X-T30 is definitely more affordable. If you just purchased a Fuji X-T30, chances are you’re going to need some additional gear for it. We decided to help out all future and current X-T30 owners with our guide on best accessories for Fuji X-T30.

Best Battery for Fuji X-T30

For power, Fuji X-T30 relies on the identical battery (Fujifilm NP-W126S) used its processor X-T20 and the X-T3. However, it does offer slightly better performance than on the X-T20 thanks to more energy efficient processor. Having said that, it is well known that these batteries don’t have huge capacity and the majority of people out there one is not going to be enough. We suggest getting at least one additional battery for your new camera.

If you’re not working with a big budget, our suggestion would be to get unofficial NP-W126 batteries from Wasabi, which is considered one of the best brands for unofficial batteries.

Although not as amazing as the X-T3, we believe Fuji X-T30 is quite capable video camera. If you’re serious about videography, chances are you won’t be using the built-in microphone. Since the camera a microphone jack, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t invest in a microphone. Keep in mind that the X-T30 has a 2.5mm microphone jack, which means you’ll also need an adapter. Here are two great options:

If you prefer wrist straps, Peak Design makes a great one as well.

Our favorite camera bags come from two companies – Peak Design and Manfrotto. If you have more money to spare, we definitely suggest going with a Peak Design Everyday Backpack, due to the quality of materials used and general usability. There are two versions of this bag – 20L and 30L. Since the X-T30 is a relatively small camera and most Fuji lenses are equally small, we believe the best choice for most people is the 20L version, but this also depends on the rest of the gear you want to carry.

Another great backpack that we’d suggest is Manfrotto Active Backpack. Once more, there are two versions of this bag, one bigger and one smaller. The build quality is solid, although this backpack offers less space for your gear than the Peak Design Everyday Backpack. However, these backpacks are definitely much more affordable.
