    The Ex-Pro white ones are the ones people on here seem to be buying.

    Batteries wise, I just popped onto amazon and bought a few with decent reviews with the same capacity as original. Think they were about £10 each.

    I spent ages deliberating over whether to splurge on UHS-II cards or not. The camera is set up to use them but they're a lot more expensive. And not all UHS-ii cards are made the same. There is a big speed difference between them. I did ultimately decide to go for UHS-ii but there are probably very few occassions where it has made any real differene. In the end I went for 2x Fujifilm branded 32gb UHS-ii cards.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fujifilm-S...id=1518448553&sr=8-2&keywords=fujifilm+uhs-ii

    Speed ratings are good and they did well in the various speed tests I found online.

    By the way, I shoot compressed raw and jpeg to each card (slot 2 being back up) and 32gb would be enough for probably nearly 1000 images. Not sure 64gb would be needed unless you want to shoot a lot of 4k video.

    Ex Pro White or Black for batteries Sir, most folk recommend the white but to be perfectly honest I've used both types and never found any difference in performance.(y)

    As for cards etc, we use Sandisk and have never experienced a problem.

    Just a simple candid street style Fujigraph taken at Folkestone Kent UK of a guy with his Violin doing a bit of street playing. This is a shot I have re-visited with improved PP.

    Glad you asked about this, as I have just ordered a Ex-Pro white from amazon. I have had the Power booster for the X-T2 since last year and have not taken out out of the box, so once the battery arrives I can start to use the grip. In both my X cameras I have and use the Sandisk Pro 95 and find it`s great.

    Sorry trev, it was only a fleeting visit for my Brothers 70th Birthday... Sunday morning is all I got, and what you can't see in these images is the howling wind and the sub-zero wind chill....

    Plus I got caught out with one shot when a large wave broke and came up the beach 20ft further than anything else. It swamped past my lightweight tripod holding the T2 & 10-24, and I had to go in shin deep before the tripod toppled over into the water :police::eek:

    But I wasn't going to risk damaging my camera! :fuji:

    Cheers mate, I keep thinking of adding other lenses, but then I look through my LR catalogue and see that I shoot a lot at 18mm 23mm and 35mm and start to wonder if I really need anything wider or longer when the 18-55 has those covered really well and is pretty damn sharp still!

    That’s Ive just ordered 2 x 32 Sandisk Pros, figured If I need more space I’ll just get a few more. I thought about the grip, but one of the main reasons of getting the x-t2 was its size and weight. But boy it’s in a whole new league...bye bye Canon! Helloooooo Fuji

    Last year I had only the X-T20 and one of those cards, think I took just over 1,400 but I do take a lot at our airshows. Hope you enjoy using the new camera too.

    can you help ?
    As the new X-H1 has really caught my interest from what bit I've read so far if IBIS is as good as Olympus OMD i have been using.
    Then I can see all of it going along with my Canon and Nikon arsenal of gear.:(

    Seeing Jonathon's shot above prompted me to post this one of my twin boys. I received a new (to me) background from Lez325 and I propped in front of the fireplace and asked the boys to pose for me (like herding tadpoles) and this was the result. SOOC with only natural light to camera right

    I'm the same regarding the grip. Before I bought my X-T2, I'd read a lot about the boost mode offered by the grip, transforming the speed of the camera so I was concerned that not having the grip would mean I'm not fully utilising the camera's potential. When it came to it, Fuji had a free grip offer on anyway when I bought mine but it was one that you had to claim 30 days later so I had the camera for over a month without grip. So worth noting that the camera can do boost mode all by itself. You get the higher EVF refresh rate and improved AF speed anyway. I understand the grip improves AF speed slightly more and improves black out rate but I honestly couldn't tell the difference. The grip does give you better charging options and video inputs/outputs and 11 fps but none of that interested me that much. I just didn't like the bulk. Have always felt this way about grips though I do admit they have their place. So I tried my grip for a whole weekend before it went on ebay!

    I am just hoping I like and use the grip, but a part of me thinks it won`t be on the X-T2 all the time.

    Oh gawd, my life just flashed before my eyes just then. Fortunately I'm reasonably on top of firmware upgrades and I only have 13 to do. Until I check the other manufacturers, that is....

    (I'm guessing you had a load of the October 2016 updates still to apply? That was a big one.)

    Just a simple close up Fujigraph taken outside Horse Guards in Whitehall London UK of part a Lifeguard on duty showing just part of his boot & stirrup.
    I posted a copy of this snap in colour many moons ago and it was suggested that it would work in mono, so I've finally gotten round to it.:)
