Fujifilm X100V Accessories

The Fujifilm X100V excels at minimalist photography, so you might not want to pack it with accessories. That said, there are some that are essential (a memory card), and some that make shooting more convenient and protect your camera.

In addition to the usual multitude of camera accessories on the market, there are also some that apply specifically to the Fujifilm X100V. Many of these are put out by Fujifilm themselves, and in some cases there are good aftermarket alternatives that can make for equally effective but far more cost effective options.

Below are model numbers for some of the core accessories for the Fujifilm X100V, along with some other recommendations.

Memory Card for the Fujifilm X100V

Of all the accessories here, this is probably the most important. Without it, you’re not going to get far shooting with your X100V.

Like most cameras, the Fujifilm X100V doesn’t come with a memory card, and there’s no officially recommended specific model. But the X100V does feature relatively high-bitrate video recording, which means you’ll need a card that can keep up with the large stream of data, especially if you’re shooting video or burst photos.

I’ve put together some more detailed recommendations on SD cards for the Fujifilm X100V separately, but here are some quick recommendations.

  1. SanDisk Extreme V30 UHS-I SD Card
  2. Lexar Professional 1066x Silver V30 UHS-I SD Card
  3. Kingston Canvas Go Plus V30 UHS-I SD Card
SanDisk Extreme V30 UHS-I SD Card
  • Type: SDXC / SDHC
  • Video Speed Class: V30
  • UHS Bus Interface Type: UHS-I
  • Storage Capacities: 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB
Lexar Professional 1066x V30 UHS-I SD Card
  • Type: SDXC
  • Video Speed Class: V30
  • UHS Bus Interface Type: UHS-I
  • Storage Capacities: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
Kingston Canvas Go Plus V30 UHS-I SD Card
  • Type: SDXC
  • Video Speed Class: V30
  • UHS Bus Interface Type: UHS-I
  • Storage Capacities: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB

USB Cable for the Fujifilm X100V: Charging & Data Transfer

To connect your Fujifilm X100V to a computer, and for some charging operations, you’ll need a USB cable.

The X100V has a USB-C (USB Type-C) connector. You’ll need a cable that can transmit data as well as power (some only transmit power and are marketed primarily as charging cables; make sure it also mentions data transfer).

There are various configurations available depending on the length of cable you need and the connector on the other end of the cable (i.e., for what you’re plugging it into).

Most computers have Type A USB connectors. Some of the newer laptops only have a smaller USB-C connector. So you’ll need to check the device you’re connecting the camera to.

Battery & Power Accessories for the Fujifilm X100V

  • Battery: NP-W126S
    • The Fujifilm official battery isn’t cheap but does have the advantage of being officially supported by Fujifilm as working with the X100V. You can also pick up much more cost-effective aftermarket versions, which can be excellent alternatives.
  • Battery Charger: BC-W126S
    • Again, there are various aftermarket versions that can offer good value. Find them under the same model number.
  • AC Power Adapter: AC-9V
  • DC Coupler: CP-W126
Fujifilm NP-W126S Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery
  • Compatible with FUJIFILM X series cameras using NP-W126
  • Improved heat management compared to NP-W126
Nitecore NC-BP004 Camera Battery Compatible Fujifilm NP-W126S Compatible…
  • COMPATIBLE WITH FUJIFILM NP-W126S BATTERY – The NC-BP004 is a camera battery compatible with Fujifilm’s…
  • NEVER MISS THE PERFECT MOMENT – with a high capacity 1140mAh replacement battery for Fujifilm cameras.

Remote Shutter Release

  • Remote Shutter Release: RR-100
    • This is a cable shutter release with pretty basic functionality. It doesn’t include a timer or intervalometer. (For intervalometer / time lapse functionality, take a look at the aftermarket JJC shutter release.)
Fujifilm RR-100 Remote Shutter Release Controller
  • Trigger camera shutter to reduce camera shake.
  • Works with x-t3

Lens Accessories

  • Telephoto Conversion Lens: TCL-X100II
    • This is a dedicated telephoto conversion lens that magnifies the view by 1.4x and converts the field of view to the equivalent of a 50mm lens (in 35mm equivalent). So it’s basically the same perspective as the classic nifty fifty lens on a full-frame or film camera.
  • Wide-Angle Conversion Lens: WCL-X100II
    • This is a dedicated wide-angle conversion lens that broadens the X100V’s original lens field of view by 0.8x to offer the equivalent of a 28mm focal length (in 35mm equivalent), which is a classic street photography and photojournalism focal length. It attaches to the built-in lens, which does add some bulk and weight. It’s available in black or silver.
  • Lens hood: LH-X100
    • The lens hood is an unusual design that is good for both providing protection against stray light as well as protection against knocks and bumps. But does it really need teh $77 Fujifilm version? I’ve used the B&H Vello aftermarket version and really can’t tell the difference, aside from it being less than a third of the price ($20).
  • Adapter ring: AR-X100
    • This allows for attaching 49mm filters to the lens.
  • Protector Filter: PRF-49 / PRF-49S
    • Honestly, there’s no particular reason that you have to get the Fujifilm model for this. There are plenty of other good protector filters on the market that are likely easier to find and could be well be cheaper.
Fujifilm Fujinon Wide Conversion Lens for X100 Series Camera, Black…
  • For use with the Fujifilm X100F
  • Multiplies the fixed focal length by approx. 0.8x, converting it to 28mm (35mm format equivalent)

  • For use with the Fujifilm X100F
  • Multiplies the fixed focal length by approx. 0.8x, converting it to 28mm (35mm format equivalent)

Camera Case for Fujifilm X100V

You can obviously use just about any camera bag for the X100V. There are some excellent street-style messenger bags that make for good options (like Domke’s messenger bags (I’m a big fan of these) or these from ONA), but any there’s nothing specific about the X100V that requires a specially configured camera bag.

But Fujifilm (and some third parties) also make an old-school leather case that fits snugly around the camera and can remain in place (with a flip-down top section) while shooting.

Fujifilm LC-X100V Leather Case – Black
  • Fitted Case for X100V Digital Camera
  • All-Leather Design

Hand Grip

  • Grip Belt: GB-001. This is a hand grip / wrist strap that attaches to the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera.

External Microphone

Flash

The X100V does have a built-in flash, but it’s tiny. If you’re after any serious light, you’ll be wanting to add some kind of external lighting such as a speedlight or studio lighting.

These are the external flashes officially recommended by Fujifilm:

Aftermarket Flash Compatibility

If you’re looking at aftermarket versions, be sure to pick up one that is specifically compatible with Fujifilm’s system. For instance, there is an aftermarket version of the wireless commander by Nissin.

The Fujifilm X100V, like many Fujifilm cameras, has its own unique flash system. When considering flash compatibility, especially for wireless commanders and off-camera flash setups, it’s important to note a few things:

  • Dedicated Fujifilm Flash System: The Fujifilm X100V is designed to work seamlessly with Fujifilm’s own flash system. This includes wireless commanders specifically made for Fujifilm cameras. Fujifilm’s system uses a different communication protocol for flash control compared to Nikon or Canon.
  • Third-Party Flash Units: There are third-party flash manufacturers that make units compatible with Fujifilm cameras. These units often come with their own wireless commanders and receivers that are designed to work with Fujifilm’s TTL (Through The Lens) metering system.
  • Cross-Brand Compatibility: Generally, Nikon or Canon wireless commanders are not directly compatible with Fujifilm cameras like the X100V. The communication protocols and TTL metering systems are different across these brands. A Nikon or Canon wireless commander may trigger a flash, but you would likely lose TTL functionality and would have to use the flash in manual mode.
  • Manual Mode Workaround: If you already have a Nikon or Canon wireless flash system, you can still use it with the X100V in manual mode. You won’t have TTL metering, and you’ll have to adjust flash power manually, but it can be a functional solution if you’re comfortable working without TTL.
  • Universal Triggers: Some universal wireless triggers are designed to work across different camera brands. These triggers often support basic flash triggering without brand-specific TTL metering.
