Here’s one we missed when it was originally announced: Fujifilm recently introduced a pair of accessory grips for its X-Pro and X-E models, called MHG-XPro and MHG-XE respectively. The grips attach to the bottom of the camera and provide a new tripod mount that is positioned on the lens axis. Access to the battery compartment is possible while the grips are attached.
In addition to extra comfort when holding the camera, the grips also provide an extra bit of height, so that larger lenses don’t get in the way of a tripod head. The MHG-XPro and MHG-XE’s frames are milled from aluminium and sit right on top of the camera’s integrated grip, providing the same textured pattern.
Both grips are available now for prices of US-$ 150 (MHG-XPro) and US-$ 130 (MHG-XE) respectively, according to dpreview. However, we couldn’t find them with any of the regular retailers as of yet.
