New Fujifilm TG-BT1 tripod grip set to arrive locally in January 2023

Fujifilm South Africa is set to launch the newly announced TG-BT1 tripod grip locally during January 2023. The TG-BT1 accessory attaches to X Series cameras and functions not only as a Bluetooth enabled grip but also as a tripod.

This provides a number of innovative shooting options for Fujifilm users, both for video recording and for stills.

The TG-BT1 allows the camera angle to be adjusted 180 degrees vertically and 360 degrees horizontally. By rotating the TG-BT1 horizontally, it can be used as a selfie grip beneficial to those requiring footage of themselves. And by circling the unit vertically, it can be employed as a shooting grip for low angle shots or videos.

As an added benefit, the TG-BT1 allows for users to simply expand its tripod legs in order to provide stability when taking group shots or when setting up a fixed-point camera.

The TG-BT1 connects to compatible Fujifilm cameras via Bluetooth and provides easy access to key remote shooting functionality directly from the grip. This includes the shutter release button, video recording as well as a control lock switch. Also, when a lens equipped with power zoom is attached, a T/W button can be used for zoom operation.

At 172.3mm in height (legs retracted) and weighing only 205.5g (excluding battery), the TG-BT1 grip is ideal for travellers or for those for whom portability remains key. Furthermore, the tripod grip is weather resistant, which makes for a perfect pairing with the new X-T5 (with its 63 weather sealed points) and weather resistant XF30mmF2.8 R LM WR Macro. The grip can carry a maximum combined weight of 1.5kg.

The Fujifilm TG-BT1 tripod grip is set for arrival in South Africa during January 2023, and will come with a suggested retail price of R3200 incl. VAT.
