Fujifilm X100V: Reviews
The X100F is the fourth version of Fujifilm's highly respected X100 series. It still uses the same 23mm equivalent 35mm F2 lens, retains the "classic" design cues, but almost everything has changed below the surface.
The biggest change between the X100F and its predecessors is the switch to using the 24MP X-Trans sensor. We were very impressed with this sensor when we encountered it on the X-Pro2 and X-T2. We think this is a much greater advance than the increase in the number of pixels would suggest.
Here are the main features of the X100F :
- X-Trans 24MP CMOS sensor
- Hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder
- F2 lens equivalent 35 mm
- Joystick for AF point adjustment
- ISO control by dial (lift and turn the shutter speed dial)
- Two push-button control dials, front and rear
- Customizable focus ring when not in MF mode
- Revised menus
- Finer Grain Image Settings
- NP-W126S battery with higher voltage with indication of the percentage of use
- Digital teleconverter mode (offers 50mm and 70mm equivalent cultures, resized to 24MP)
The X100 series, perhaps more than any other camera, has seen the results of the philosophy of continuous improvement. Whether in the firmware updates that transformed the original, fascinating but deeply flawed X100 into a fun and usable camera, or in the iterative approach that saw general improvements to each successive model.
