Thanks, Fujifilm, for selling me a cheap camera. And let it has a retro look.

       I purchased this brand-new camera X-T1 three years ago and not use much since I have a full-time job busy work. I generally carry with me on the weekends. For the first time, I noticed the rubber hand grip peeled off at the bottom corner right next to the memory card door, and to fix it, I bought the rubber glue to glue. A couple of months later, the grip slightly moved again and squeezed off on the other side; I tried another glue and hoped it might work, but nope! It completely messed after gluing. I was impatient to fix and decided to expunge the right-hand grip, as you see in the photo. The funny thing is, after I obliterated that grip. I got more compliments on how the camera looks, and my sister thought I just got a new camera :-)

       I spent more $ on this X-T1 sapphire version and expected to be a high-quality camera. I used Canon Nikon for a long time but switched to Fuji because of its weight. Neither Nikon nor Canon got the handgrip issue after many years of usage. Don’t assume I don’t like this camera. I have fallen in love with it for the first time since I saw it in commercial Ads. I know nothing is perfect, and each camera has Pros and Cons itself, but to me, this is unacceptable for spending fifteen hundred dollars on after three years.

       I hope this information may give you an idea or an experience with this issue. If anyone has a camera hand grip issue like me, please share How to fix. If Fuji reads this post, please specify the problem.
