The Fujifilm XT100 is an entry-level mirrorless digital camera, geared toward freshmen, social photographers and vloggers, sporting a 24 Megapixel APSC sensor, built-in viewfinder, tilting touchscreen that may additionally flip sideways to face the topic, Bluetooth and Wifi. Introduced in Might 2018, it slots between the finances XA5 and the higher-end XT20, basically equipping the previous with a viewfinder and adjusting the display mechanism so it may nonetheless face-forward for selfies and vlogging.
The XT100 shares the identical 24 Megapixel APSC sensor because the XA5 which options embedded phase-detect autofocus and a standard Bayer color filter array as oppose to the X-Trans design reserved for higher-end fashions. Fujifilm’s revered picture processing nonetheless takes place although with the selection of 11 Movie Simulations, albeit not together with the newest ACROS or Eterna choices. I’m happy to report earlier restrictions on video clip size from the XA5 have been lifted, so now you can movie as much as 30 minutes in 720p, 1080p or 4k, though sadly the XT100 nonetheless inherits the utmost body charge of 15fps in 4k making it unusable for many tasks. 1080p is no less than out there as much as 60p, and you can too movie 720p with a 4 instances slow-down. The necessary factor is to know the highest quality video mode that’s usable is 1080p.
The XT100 features an digital viewfinder over the XA5, sporting a good 2360okay dot OLED panel with 0.62x magnification – not enormous however par for the course at this worth, and a key profit over fashions which depend on a display alone. The XT100’s display inherits the contact capabilities of latest Fujifilm our bodies, however employs a brand new articulating mechanism that along with the same old vertical tilts additionally helps a sideways motion so the display can face the topic. This uncommon method is probably not splendid for taking pictures photographs within the portrait orientation at excessive or low angles, however importantly means you should use the XT100 for selfies or vlogging. Additional enhancing the latter is the possibility to attach a microphone, albeit through a smaller than commonplace 2.5mm jack; word the XA5 additionally sported a 2.5mm microphone jack and a display that might flip upwards to face the topic, however doing so blocked the hotshoe from mounting equipment, a restriction that doesn’t apply to the XT100.
The XT100 physique is fairly compact, measuring 121x83x47mm and weighing 448g together with its battery that’s good for 430 photographs. Regardless of the compact measurement, the XT100 provides three management dials along with the mode dial. Like latest Fujifilm our bodies, there’s Wifi complemented by Bluetooth for simpler connectivity and placement tagging through your cellphone. It’s out there in three colors, Silver, Black or Champagne Gold, and sometimes bought in a equipment with the XC 15-45mm f3.5-5.6 OIS PZ powered zoom first seen on the XA5. Anticipate the XT100 in late June at a worth of 619 GBP together with the equipment lens. Within the meantime you would possibly get pleasure from my different Fujifilm evaluations, together with my Fujifilm XT20 assessment and Fujifilm XA5 assessment to date.
