The Fujifilm X-T100 is the corporate’s least costly X-series digicam to incorporate an digital viewfinder. It shares most of its guts with the entry-level X-A5, together with its hybrid autofocus system and 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor. In contrast to that digicam, and the X-T20 that sits above it, the X-T100 has a novel LCD design that permits it to each tilt and flip out to the facet however not rotate.

Sadly, the X-T100 inherits extra from the X-A5 than the X-T20, which implies there are some compromises. Picture high quality is nice, design and construct high quality are stable and battery life is superb. Sadly, the digicam’s total efficiency is sluggish, its autofocus system can not reliably observe something transferring and its ‘4K’ video is extra like an prolonged burst mode (high quality is poor, as effectively).

For individuals who benefit from the Fujifilm capturing expertise we suggest spending the additional $200 for the X-T20. If you wish to keep in the identical worth vary, aggressive cameras from Canon, Olympus and Panasonic could also be higher selections in lots of respects.

Key Options:

  • 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • ISO vary of 100-51200 (absolutely expanded)
  • 91-point hybrid AF system
  • 2.36M-dot OLED digital viewfinder
  • 3″ touchscreen LCD can each tilt up/down and flip outward 180°
  • 6 fps steady capturing (as much as 26 JPEGs)
  • Movie Simulation modes
  • 4K/15p and 1080/60p video
  • 4K Burst and Multi Focus modes
  • Wi-Fi + Bluetooth connectivity
  • Interchangeable grip
  • 430 photographs/cost battery life (per CIPA ranking)

The X-T100’s function set is spectacular, so long as you are not a severe videographer. The EVF is gorgeous and the articulating LCD offers you the most effective of each worlds, with the ability to tilt and flip to the facet. Whereas the X-T100 has a bigger buffer than the X-A5, it nonetheless fills up fairly rapidly when you’re capturing Uncooked. Nonetheless, that is greater than sufficient for a digicam that prices $600 (physique solely).

An necessary distinction between the X-A5/X-T100 and the dearer X-T20 is that the latter makes use of an X-Trans shade filter on its sensor, slightly than the normal Bayer filter. Many would argue that X-Trans had a bonus over Bayer sensors when resolutions have been decrease, however with all the pieces now at 24MP, we’re not satisfied there’s a lot of a distinction.

The X-T100 is offered as a body-only package for $599 or with a 15-45mm equiv. F3.5-5.6 energy zoom lens for $699. Black and ‘champagne gold’ our bodies can be found.
