To make it easier for users to take photos and videos, Fujifilm launched the TG-BT1 tripod grip accessory . This device comes with very compact dimensions to make it easy to travel anywhere.
Features Fujifilm TG-BT1
The TG-BT1 comes in at approx. 17.22 cm tall. Meanwhile, it only weighs about 205 grams. Very space-saving in the camera bag. The design is also weather resistant. So, you don’t need to worry about taking it outdoors when the weather conditions are uncertain.
As a tripod the legs can be opened wide. So, it can support the table top tripod function for shooting at very low angles. The design of the legs is also sturdy so that they can be used on a variety of flat surfaces. The head is also designed to be flexible. Can be tilted vertically down to an angle of 180 degrees.
Another excellent feature is the Bluetooth connection. That way this tripod grip can be connected to the Fujifilm X-Series mirrorless camera. When connected, it is possible for the user to control the zoom of the lens via the available T/W lever. In addition, there is support for the shutter button to take pictures and a button to start video recording.
The TG-BT1 is compatible with Fujifilm X-T5 , X-T4, X-T3, X-S10, X-T30 II and X-T30 cameras. Unfortunately, the lens zoom control feature is not yet compatible with the X-T30 and X-T30 II cameras. In early 2023, it is planned that the TG-BT1 can also be used on the X-H2S and X-H2 cameras.
Price and availability
This device will be available on the market in December 2022. The price for the Fujifilm TG-BT1 is US$199.
