In this article, we will be taking a look at what we feel are the best tripods for Fuji XT2 cameras currently available on the market right now. We have seen a steady number of people reaching out for assistance and advice on camera accessories for their XT2 each month so decided to publish this article.
Our hope is that it will be able to help as many of our readers as possible who own an XT2 and are looking to pick up a tripod for it. We will be focusing on two tripods in the article, one that is for more generic use and one that is ideal for use as a travel tripod but can also help with some generic photography too. Both of the tripods have been tried and tested while also having earned an excellent reputation within the photography community since their release too.
The Best Tripod For Fuji XT2 Cameras
The Zomei Z669 offers a ton of functionality at a budget-friendly price and we feel that this is one of the main reasons that it is such a popular product. Since its release, it has managed to earn itself a dedicated core customer base who have left plenty of third-party, independent reviews sharing their experiences with it. You can also read our own full in-depth review of the Zomei Z669 that we recently published too if you like.
The Z669 is based around the classic ball head tripod design with an excellent build quality with variants of the tripod being available made from carbon fiber or aluminum. The tripod has a maximum load capacity weight of around 15 lbs/ 7 kg meaning it is easily able to support the weight of your Fuji XT2 as well as any other mirrorless cameras or DSLR cameras that you may own even when you have a heavy zoom lens attached.
The tripod couldn’t be easier to set up. It uses the very simple yet effective twist lock leg system that allows you to quickly and easily extend the tripod legs for use and lock them in place to offer a stable and secure foundation for your XT2. The legs are also very easy to adjust and tweak to ensure that you are able to get the perfect photograph of video each time.
If you are using the tripod outdoors for landscape photography where their maybe wind then you can take advantage of the metal counterweight hook in the image to the left at the base of the tripods center column.
This will allow you to add counterweights to the base of the tripod to easily increase its stability and prevent the wind at your photography location from causing you any problems. Although there are specifically designed counterweights available, many photographers simply use their backpack or another part of their camera gear as a counterweight as it usually works just as well.
The counterweight hook can help provide stability for the tripod all the way up to its maximum height of 60 inches to offer you peace of mind that it is secure and won’t blow over meaning that your XT2 is safe when mounted.
As you could expect, the Z669 comes with a quick release plate that is very easy to use. Simply mount your XT2 on the plate and then you are able to quickly and easily mount and demount your camera to the tripod via the quick release plate system instead of manually mounting it each time. Over the course of a photography session this can really end up saving you a ton of time and if you are doing any kind of paid client work, time is money.
The head of the tripod also comes with a bubble level as standard to help you ensure that the tripod head is level before taking a photograph or starting to record footage. If you are planning on doing any epic wide angle vista work then this is ideal to allow you to quickly make sure that your camera is level before starting your session.
All in all, the Zomei Z669 is a solid tripod that can be an excellent partner for your Fuji XT2. It offers just as much, if not more functionality than tripods almost twice its price. No matter your photography niche, you will be able to use the Z669 to enhance your photographs and its ease of use is sure to save you a bunch of time too during your photography sessions.

The Best Travel Tripod For Fuji XT2 Cameras
The small size and low weight of the Zomei Q555 makes it the ideal travel tripod companion for your Fuji XT2 allowing you to take a tripod with you without the need to waste too much space or weight in your baggage allowance. This allows you to use your XT2 to capture some excellent travel photography images to document your travels as best you can or record any footage that you want to preserve your journey even better.
The horizontal ball head system used on the Q555 allows you to take some epic panoramic photographs on your journey as well as take any epic slow pan footage of the landscapes that you may see while also offering excellent image quality. The flip lock system of the tripod allows you to quickly and easily get the tripod into position with minimal effort while its quick release plate allows you to also mount or demount your XT2 within seconds always saving you time.
Again, the Q555 comes with a metal counterweight hook as standard that we explained earlier in the article. This allows you to quickly and easily add ccounterweightsto the bottom of the center column of the tripod and further increase the stability of it when your Fuji XT2 is mounted. Not only does this offer you additional peace of mind that the tripod will not blow over in heavy wind but it can also help improve your photograph quality too.
