When I bought my Fujifilm X-E3 I also bought a red enameled shutter button to go with it. I didn’t like the way it looked, so I replaced it with an anodized button.
After a couple of weeks of use, I have decided that I don’t like the orangy-red color and shiny finish of the enameled button, so I have changed to the anodized shutter button pictured above, a 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 in-place. (By the way, ‘Splashed out’ is $7.99 for two buttons and a lens/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.
The picture below shows the enameled button on my X-E3 (left) compared to the red anodized version on the FujiFilm X-E2s (right).
Update: May 2021
It looks as good now as it did on day one, which considering I take my camera out backpacking regularly and that has taken its toll, is as good as you can get. I’d buy another if I somehow lost this one, no question. It makes the shutter so much easier to use, especially when holding the camera one-handed.
