I placed a little self-adhesive anti-slip pad between the view mode button and the ael/afl button and found it surprisely effective. It provides a tactile "home" location for my thumb, much like a thumb grip, but it doesn't interfere with any operations of the camera or change the form factor of the camera. In addition to proving a more secure grip, having a defined home position for my thumb helps me find other buttons easier. I originally tried placing it between the ael/afl button and the rear command dial, but found that having a smooth surface there is better for operation of the wheel.
I recently sold my Pro 1 and purchased an X-E2. Some would say this is a downgrade but in my case, it was an upgrade as I use Zeiss manual lens with this camera and needed a better EVF system. What has been a challenge is the fact the E2 go's through battery power at much faster rate than a Pro 1 so I came across a battery grip and am wondering if anyone has purchased or has any knowledge of this product. The name of the grip is OWNUSER MIG-FXE1/2B Mini Battery Grip For Fujifilm X-E1 / X-E2 Cameras. Extending the battery life on this camera would be a big plus for me as I am carrying several batteries with me so I can interchange them when needed. Frank
Has anyone found a silver thumb rest for the x100T that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and is of the simple "push in" kind?
I don't really fancy the kind of thumb rests where one has to tighten it with a screw to the flash shoe.
(I could of course go with a black one (around 15 or so dollars on *bay), but since I have a silver camera, silver would be... well, nicer ?)
