Small Rig L-Bracket for X-T2

in my search for a solid grip for the X-T2 (don't need the battery grip), I came across one that isn't listed as a grip at all, but as an L-Bracket:

i guess those things are ok , pepperberry, i tried one , or two, , in the past for various cameras, or the battery grips , some love battery grips , but i like the basic camera, and always come back to the way the camera was designed , it just feels right . better . to me .

i never pay attention, and i should ... ' to keep your opinions to yourself ... ' : )

no - your opinions are yours and they are important....

I only brought this up for others - if they may be looking for something similar and had not come across this option...

you may want to consider an x-pro1,

i don't know how they tweaked the sensor or software , but of the fujis i have and tried ( x-e2, also , and didn't keep )
the x-pro1, has the best , most organic , in a way , images .
it depends what you want , i guess.

i pick up and use the x-t1, as my favoite, the pro1 second, e1 third,
had to get a screw in diopter +2 , for the pro1,

its a funky camera , i only use the evf on it . and manual lenses.
but its images are just the best, over and over ....

there , another opinion , i didn't keep to myself : )

I figured the x-e2s. It's made in Japan, can be found in better condition as a more recent body, it's small, can come with grip, thumb-holder, etc, more up-to-date than the x-pro1, and not the slr form factor I already have with the x-t20. Should be fun, I reckon.

And maybe I can finally settle for a 23/f2 to compensate for a body with a slower and older AF system. It's been a real struggle to choose between a 23/1.4 and a 23/2 and swallow the fact that the the 23/2 sucks at close-ups and also has a tiny-bit of a wider FOV in reality.

Nice addition. I ordered a smallrig cage for the a6300 back when I bought it. Worked well for my video needs holding mics and lights and stuff. Don't take video anymore so I don't have it installed but it was a nice piece.

I'll be interested in you experience with the Fuji. I have been looking at them for quite a long time as a platform for my M glass specifically to shoot JPEG. I would like to hear more about your experiences with it compared to the K5ii since that is the Pentax DSLR that I use now. I rented a X100F a couple weeks ago and really enjoyed using it. The pictures it produced were really nice and it was freeing to get away from my current RAW workflow in Capture One/NIK Software/Affinity Photo. Just shoot and post.

Happy shooting with your XT-2. See you on Single In

I would. I love its build quality but looks so technology outdated for its used market price . Maybe at this point I would take a 2nd gen 16mp/processor over the ultimate build quality (the xe2 series does look better built than my x-t20 however). I am excited as I ordered a factory precalibrated 27"/1440p 100% sRGB display and want to sink my fingers into some of these 16mps files

I don't know I think people say those ones are organic sensors too it's just talks in the end maybe.
As far as the monitor, maybe as a little celebration nothing more.

The K-5IIs, yes definitely but thinking about it all the time and lean towards lighter bodies for now.
