Dec 13, 2017I splashed out on a new shutter button

When I bought my Fujifilm X-E3 I also bought a red enameled shutter button to go with it.

After a couple of weeks use, I have decided that I don’t like the color and the finish of the enameled button. It doesn’t look right. Rather than try to ‘un-glue’ the shutter button from the X-E2s, so I could use it on the X-E3, I bought a new CamDesign 10MM Diameter Red Metal Convex Soft Shutter Release Button. The enameled button came with little rubber washers, so I’ve used one of those to hold my new red anodized aluminum button (pictured above) in-place. (By the way, ‘Splashed out’ is $7.99 for two buttons and the useless wristband.)

I much prefer the color and finish of this button. I just wish that the supplier would provide washers too, instead of the unwanted wrist/lens band.

You can see the first button I bought compared to the red anodized version on the FujiFilm X-E2s in this picture.
