    Haven't really ordered it per se, but I was looking at the photos from their site and while the battery slot looks useful the entire set up looks bulkier than the native Fuji handgrip.

    Phoenix, I was thinking just the bottom plate as this will then allow me to position the camera /lens centered over the ball head to do panos. The tripod socket is not centered on the XE1, and I do not understand why Fuji could not have centered it, unless they did not have the vertical height needed to do same, would have rather had the XE1 3/16" taller with centered Tripod socket.

    I had the RRS plate for my X10 and loved it, but to do panos and be able to take take out battery and card while on the tripod I will have to get the RRS plate for the XE1.
    O well.....
