This $10 Accessory Improves and Protects the Vertical Grip of $10,000 Fujifilm GFX 100

The Fujifilm GFX100 has so far earned an incredible amount of great reviews.

But if there is one aspect, where most reviewers agree, is that the vertical grip isn’t optimally designed.

They particularly complain about the lack of texture, that makes the vertical grip more slippery than the regular grip.

Well, if after buying a $10,000 camera you don’t mind spending an additional $10, the solution proposed by a member of our great Fujifilm GFX group is to get a Dragon non slip textured rubber grip.

Not only it improves the overall grip, but, as R.G said in our GFX group:

It’s not the lack of grip that concerned me as much as wanting a barrier between the body and the Custom Bracket rotating head I use in the studio to minimize the risk of “wear signs” appearing over time.

The solution is used by Fuji X Photographer Matt Brandon for his laptop, who, when asked by the community if it wouldn’t be cheaper just to use gaffer tape, answered:

I find gaffer tape doesn’t work well in the tropic regions. I have it all over my cameras to protect them (to save them for possible resale). But within a year it starts sliding and gets sticky.

  • Grip tape for phones laptops remotes and more
  • Easy to apply peel and stick grip stickers
  • Great for your iPhone grip Samsung grip tape and more
  • Grips to most phones and cases and is easy to clean
  • Grippy enough to get a good hold but is not sticky
