Accessories
Accessories not only assist shooting but also give a trendy look
to the camera to enhance your photography life. X-E1 has
accessories dedicated to the camera as well as items such as
the Fujifilm M Mount Adapter, which allows you to fit legacy
lenses to X-E1.

Its thin frame design ensures no
vignetting in the corners of the
image, even when used with other
filters such as a polarized light filter
A protector filter to prevent the addition of color to
description performance
Since UV filtering is carried out at the camera body (by a sensor), we
boldly made a filter specifically designed to protect the lens that is
completely colorless and transparent so that description is not negatively
affected. We used the “Super EBC”, a multilayer coating technology, to
treat the lens surface. In addition, we processed the inner frame like that
of the XF lens to thoroughly control ghosting and flares. Naturally, this filter
offers the reliability of products made in Japan.
This is a "Quick Shot" case that is specifically designed
for X-E1 and made of premium-quality leather that nicely
molds to your grip as it ages. It comes with fabric wrap
that can flexibly wrap the camera.LC-XE1
Made of premium, genuine leather that molds to your grip as it ages, this
"Quick Shot" case has an elegant design that integrates perfectly with the
compact and lightweight X-E1 camera body. The flap on the base allows
users to take the memory card and battery in and out of the camera body
without having to remove the case. It comes with a shoulder strap made
of the same leather used for the case's main body. It comes with a multipurpose fabric wrap with Velcro clasp so that the camera can be flexibly
wrapped when mounted with any lens. It is an ideal means of protecting
the camera when you want to carry it in your bag.

Stereo microphone (external microphone sold
separately) MIC-ST1
You can record audio with enhanced clarity and presence. Adjust the
microphone volume level (4 settings) while watching the level meter for
optimum audio recording to prevent either loss or distortion.
A hand grip for more reliable holding HG-XE1
This hand grip further improves the holdability of the X-E1. The grip portion
is made of synthetic rubber to provide a better hold. The hand grip offers
the optimal grip in less than optimal
shooting situations, The hand grip
was also designed considering weight
balance when a large lens is attached.
To increase usability, attachment
screws do not protrude and the bottom
surface is flat. The tripod hole is
aligned with the optical axis of the lens.
A clip-on flash that can produce a variety
of expressions through manipulation of
its dial Shoe Mount Flash EF-X20
To achieve the same level of operability as the X-E1, this clip-on flash is
equipped with a dimmer correction dial. Its exterior is made of metal to match
the camera body. The dial was crafted from premium metal block cutouts.
The flash was designed with consideration of weight balance and the
visibility of the shutter speed dial when the flash is mounted on the camera.

M MOUNT ADAPTER[ Part1 ]
T h e o ff i c i a l F u j i fi l m mo u n t a d a p te r for M m ount lenses
Enjoy the individuality of old lenses.
With the M mount adapter, you can install a wide variety of M mount
lenses on the X-E1 for shooting. The three-part structure has the optimal
material for each section to provide high precision. Furthermore, the builtin electrical contacts with communication functionality and the function
button to ensure excellent coordination with the camera body and smooth
operation.

This means that when you change
lenses you can configure the lens in use
easily without having to change settings
at the menu screen.
High precision design
Aluminum
Stainless
This adapter realizes the standard flange back distances of lenses that
support the M mount with high precision. The contact surface with M
mount lenses features the same high quality stainless steel finish as that
used on the X mount, while the contact surface with the camera body uses
an aluminum component similar to that used in XF lenses to provide a
level of mounting precision that only an official product can.

M MOUNT ADAPTER[ Part 2 ] Able to correct distortion, peripheral illumination, and color shading
Th e o ff i c i a l F u j ifi l m mou n t a d a p te r for M m ount lenses
■ Distortion correction
Correct the noticeable distortion
that occurs mainly when
shooting buildings and similar
objects. This function eliminates
the distortion of straight lines at
the edges of the image.
Image quality correction for lenses
that communicate with the camera
through electronic contacts
The M-mount adapter is equipped with electrical
contacts for complete communication with the camera.
Thanks to the electrical contacts, the camera
automatically switches on the “SHOOT WITHOUT
LENS” mode when the adapter is mounted. This
makes changing settings stress free, even when using
the XF lens at the same time. In addition, the angle
of view setting and display for the Hybrid Viewfinder
can be also automatically changed if the focal length
is entered ahead of time. You can also enter the
correction information for image quality conditions for
each lens ahead of time. This is good for achieving
high image quality through advanced correction
using the image quality processing of the camera or
leaving a moderate amount of distortion to enjoy
the individual flavor of the lens.

Photographers / Norifumi Inagaki
Norifumi Inagaki: This lens was released
in 1953 at the same time as Leica M3. The
compact lens with excellent portability gives
you added mobility when taking snapshots.
When fitted to X-E1’s silver body, it gives a
balanced and beautiful appearance to the
camera. There is a well-known anecdote that
the late renowned photographer Ihei Kimura
praised this lens as being capable of “capturing
the air”. It shows how advanced the lens must
have been in those days with its outstanding
resolution. Since this legacy lens tends to add
some blue hue to an image, I set the White
Balance to [Shade] to shoot. I also stopped
it down by 2 stops to F4 as the lens is slightly
soft when wide open. The areas in focus are
sharp, and the rest of the image is in smooth
bokeh for an added sense of atmosphere.

SUMMICRON90mmF2.0
Norifumi Inagaki: This lens was made in 1958, and is one of Leica’s heavier
lenses, weighing around 800g. When used wide open, it gives a light and
soft touch to an image while retaining the sharpness of focus. It is particularly
suitable for the portrait of women. In regular shooting conditions, stop down
at least 2 stops for a sharp finish. In the case of this image, the aperture was
set 2 stops down at F4 to capture the texture of the stone Buddha. The setting
faithfully reproduced the texture of the stone surface, while softening the
background exactly as I had intended. On the day of the photo shoot, it was
lightly overcast with rays of the sun occasionally coming through. It was also
not the best shooting condition as it was shot in a shaded location. However,
thanks to X-E1’s excellent White Balance function, I used the [AUTO] setting to
obtain just the right tone of colors. The reliability of color reproduction must be
attributable to Fujifilm’s expertise as a photographic film manufacturer.

Photographers / hana
hana: I bought Leica SUMMILUX-M 1:1.4/50
together with Leica M6 Traveller, my first
Leica I bought ten years ago. This lens has
been in production since the 1950s, although
its specifications have evolved with gradual
adjustments. It is available in silver and black,
and the two versions use different materials
for the lens barrel due to plating treatment.
The silver version uses a brass barrel, while
the black version uses an aluminum barrel. It
is slightly soft when wide open, so I stopped
it down to F3.5 this time. I love this lens’s
characteristic soft finish, as it agrees perfectly
with my own style of photography, as shown
in this image. Among Leica lenses, this one
is on the heavier side with a large filter thread.
However, it holds very well in your hand, and is
balanced just right when fitted to X-E1.

leitz Elmar f=5cm 1:3.5
hana: This lens has been in production for an extended period of time. It is
one of “the standard” lenses among lenses designed for the Barnack bodies. I
bought this collapsible lens five years ago after seeing photographs taken with
this lens at a photography exhibition. It produces rich and gentle tonality, which
goes perfectly with my world of photography. This image, taken at the Edogawa
drainage canal in Chiba Prefecture, shows every single reed leaf and branch
of trees in absolute clarity, while retaining a gentle impression as a whole. I
love how the lens captures a crisp and tack sharp image of the subject while
producing a very gentle tone across the frame.

Camera bags used by professional
Like actual camera equipment, camera bags are an important item that professional photographers cannot do
without for work. With the need for frequent access to camera gear, photographers choose a bag that best suits
their shooting style. Here, four photographers share with us their very own camera bags.

[ Norifumi Inagaki’s camera bag ]
[ Masaaki Aihara’s camera bag ]
Norifumi Inagaki: I use F5-XB produced by the American company DOMKE,
popular among journalists and journalism photographers around the world.
Despite its compact size, the bag can carry two XE-1 bodies and 3 lenses
(XF18/35/60mm), and features a pocket you can use for storing reference
materials for street photography, e.g. a travel guide book and a notepad.
You can freely adjust partitions and feel secure with excellent padding. This
is my 5th DOMKE bag. I pick up a new one when I get the chance to go to
New York.
Masaaki Aihara: This is a camera bag by the Australian manufacturer
“Crumpler”, based in the country’s art center, Melbourne. Having come
from the city of arts, the bag sports a fine design, with the red tag on the
zipper adding a trendy touch. The president of the manufacturer used to
work as a motorcycle courier, which led him to develop tough and easyto-use bags that he would want to use for work. That explains the bag’s
solid stitching and ease of use.

partitions
Padded materials put in
the bag for partitioning
hana: I use this tote bag I bought at a department store while visiting Kobe,
and put padded materials for partitioning. I love how lightweight it is. Being
a waterproof bag, I can carry it over my shoulder rain or snow, without having
to worry about getting it wet. The bag also has a large opening for quick and
easy access to my camera gear.
Shinichi Hanawa: My camera bag is DOMKE J2. I take it wherever I go,
even when I am not taking any photos. That’s how much I love this bag.
It has numerous compartments in addition to side pockets for sorting and
storing accessories and maintenance tools. The Velcro partition can be
freely adjusted according to the types and number of camera equipment I
carry.
