Fujifilm FinePix X100 Accessories Update

I have some limited good news to report and some not so great news.  The good is that the accessories like lens hood, filter adapter and EF-20 flash will be shipping very soon.  Probably in the next week.  The bad news is that the Leather Case has been delayed.  There will be a significant delay on this and I will update the exact info once I know it.  We will have to wait a couple months is my guess.  For now I am going to see how it breaks in on my camera.
You cannot use it with the lens hood on - but yes for the filter adapter.  Update - I highly recommend that you buy a multi-coated filter.  If you buy a less expensive single-coated filter you WILL see more flare in your (nighttime with light source) images.  Other than that - filter style and brand is really your call.  I think we all see the wide price ranges from Tiffen & Kenko to Heliopan, B&W and the others.

    Brandon -

    Do you have a suggestion on what type of 49mm filter to buy? I want the finest glass possible for an amazing camera. B&W filters look to be well reviewed. Thanks

    Here's some B+W filters that I saw mentioned in forums.

  4. Does the lens hood fit over the filter adapter?

  6. I'm sorry -- I meant the lens *cap*.

    @ark, This video should give you an answer.

  8. Thanks! So apparently the original cap will fit the filter adapter but not as firmly as one might wish. However, if you take the hood off when you take the camera out of its case, that should do it.

    I guess the next question is whether the leather case will fit the camera with the filter adapter (but not the hood) attached.

    I think if you use a slim filter it will be a very tight fit.
