I'll just add my current conundrum, which is that the 18-135mm is only $50 more than the 16-80mm right now.
My usage will be similar — as an all-in-one travel lens, the extra range seems worth it, even if it's a stop slower on the far end.
The Q button issue can be mitigated by grabbing a thumb rest. I have one and it really helps overall comfort and not hitting Q. Here’s a link to the jobbie job I picked up:
If you want a cheap small bag that's available on Amazon I got the newer sling bag. This is a German link but I'm sure is on the US site too,
It's basic, I liked that about it but my fujifilm doesn't really fit in it with or without the vertical grip. It was perfect for my Nikon D5600 though.
I'm looking for something slightly bigger now, but the Newer might be perfectly fine for your needs. Mine is about 5 years old and there's no sign of damage.
You can very likely just buy a different cable for the remote you purchased from amazon (if you still have it).
Looking at the manual for your camera your remote port is a 3.5mm jack.
This is the remote shutter I use, my camera uses a 2.5mm jack, so I ordered a 3.5mm to 2.5mm cable (the remote is 3.5mm)
You would need a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable for yours, couple bucks on amazon or you might already have one as an aux cable for your car.
Hope this helps :)
The saga continues:
I found out that another reason for my woes with what should have been the better mics (ATR and an SM58) was that they're both XLR/balanced connectors, so I had to use an adapter to convert to the 3.5mm/1/8" mic input on the XT-4.
All seemingly good, except that what I had turned out to be a balanced TSR 3.5mm adapter. Balanced, I've since learned, feeds two signals 180 degrees out of phase to the input electronics, which is expected to flip one of the back so they're in phase (but any interference on both lines is out of phases ... self cancels).
Since the camera input isn't balanced, it doesn't do the flip, so it gives me two mic inputs, out of phase so the signal I *want* is canceling itself.
Net: I need an UNbalanced XLR to TRS/3.5mm adapter, and that nice Mr. or Ms. Amazon will have one for me soonish.
It’s a bit slow but it works between my XT20 and few phones. This being said i prefer the card reader that i plug into my phone, PC, iPad etc
Something like that: Memory Card Reader, 3in1 USB Type... https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07167FPVR?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Small, fast and flexible.
It would suck to miss on Fuji system because of the transfer feature, just saying :)
Assuming you are on Android, try this USB type-c SD card reader by Anker. It's tiny and quick. I use it with my X-T20 and Pixel 3.
Echoing what others say about the app being buggy and slow.
This recent post that I had written recently in response to another query may give you some ideas.
It is true that most Fuji - X lenses can be quite expensive. But some Fuji-X prime lenses are superb and worth owning. Especially if you can find a second hand lens in good condition.
To start with, you may like to consider this adapter that will allow you to use your Canon EF/EF-S lenses on your Fuji XT-20 at minimal cost.
Half case with a top cover attachment like this one (no experience with this exact one) https://www.amazon.com/MUZIRI-KINOKOO-Fujifilm-Protective-Camera-Brown/dp/B0878ZZ5TG?th=1
This allows you to toss it in a backpack, sling it around your neck with no issues. If you're going to be shooting a lot you just snap the top part off.
I really like these: https://www.amazon.com/S-ZONE-Resistant-Camera-Insert-Olympus/dp/B01M19NCJJ. I have a smaller and larger one and they have both served me well in my travels. Very thick padding, decent velcro that doesn't wear out (yet at least), and the splash resistance is nice to have. The top cover is fully removable as well if you want quick access.
Fujifilm makes a two-battery charger, not as cheap or small as the one u/flyinghotbacon mentioned but it's not huge either, and it's very light.
Amazon and B&H among others sell them.
I got a nice Neewer charger and two batteries for maybe $30 in the US. But you could at least look for that wherever you are: https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Battery-Replacement-Compatible-Fujifilm/dp/B07X2K426H
You do have to set your camera to USB "Tether Shooting Fixed" under the USB connection setting but, if you leave your camera set there it should just work each time you plug it in.
I don't think your camera is going to be charging while it's being used as a web cam though. My X-T3 doesn't seem like it charges and streams at the same time, but I haven't used it extensively. Originally the Fuji X Webcam software you need to install to use this feature didn't work on an Apple so I didn't spend much time using it. It works fine now though.
I grabbed this $20 gizmo which gives you 1080 video and, you can still charge at the same time. You can also plug any camera with an HDMI port into it too. Still have to disable camera's power saving or else it just goes off.
There may be another way out IF your intent is simply to extend shooting time.
You may purchase a Dummy battery + a USB interface to power the camera from an external Lithium Ion Power bank.
The link below is one example of this combination for the Fuji XT-30.
A typical 10,000 mAh powerbank should last roughly four times longer than your battery.
Hope that helps.
I carry this when I go out with just one lens and my xt4.

You need one like this, a true stereo headphone adapter like from the 70s (NOT the kind with 4 bands for Apple): https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-107126-Stereo-Adaptor-Plated/dp/B001119F0I/
You can probably pick one up in Best Buy or any good music store as well.
There is a Silver one at Amazon
Amazon.com : Fujifilm X-T200 Mirrorless Digital Camera w/XC15-45mm Kit - Dark Silver : Camera & Photo
I really recommend the Fujinon XC35mmF2. Massively underrated. Bought this for taking photos of my daughter in our house which is pretty dark so needed the f2. And I’m blown away by the image quality!! It’s also super small and light. And cheap!
If you had your eye on the Provoke, then consider this bag made my THULE. It’s super comfortable, has a great side access and padded organizer on the bottom half and excellent locker organization on the outer portion. With it being a roll top, you have the ability to expand if you needed more room on the half portion.
I spent hours reading reviews and watching videos...and landed on this THULE Covert. I even ordered the Lowepro Protactic and was not happy with the fit. The THULE Covert is comfortable fully loaded with gear/drone/clothes and misc travel items. Used it in New York for a week and was super happy with it. That Provoke will rip over time.

Note that most adapters can only be used with manual focus, and lens EXIF will not carry into your raw files except for focal length which you have to configure manually
I can’t find the exact same one cuz I got it when I bought the Camera, but it’s very similar to this one! https://www.amazon.com/Camera-kinokoo-Fujifilm-Protective-Case-Coffee/dp/B07JFXWCJM/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=fuji%2Bxt3%2Bcase&qid=1599592997&sr=8-7&th=1&psc=1
It’s the Amazon Canadian site though:

It doesn’t say it fits the X100V, but if the adapter and filter size are the same as its predecessors, then I assume the hood should fit too.
