This sounded promising, so I wanted to put it to … More Improving image quality with median (is it worth it?)

Unfortunately, there are no fitted plastic cases made specifically for most camera batteries any more. Just … More Fujifilm X100T Battery Case Options
I recently purchased a Fujifilm X100T. It works great as-is two-handed, but doesn’t feel great yet to me.
