The Fujifilm X100V – Make Everyday Remarkable

  By Ryley Smith

 

The newest addition to Fujifilm’s X100 Series family is ready to make its mark on the world. The Fujifilm X100V is a significant upgrade featuring a new 23mmF2 lens, advanced hybrid viewfinder, 2-way tilting rear LCD screen and so much more, this camera is ready for any creative project!

The X100V is the latest model in a long line of iconic, portable, and fun X100 premium compact digital cameras, designed to make every day remarkable. With some key new features and improvements, here is what the X100V has to offer.

The timeless look of Fuji is still upheld with slight enhancements to the grip, ISO dial, and lens barrel to make it comfortable while keeping the classic clean edges. A big addition is when the AR-X100 adapter ring and the PRF-49 protection filter are attached, it provides weather resistance, the first in the x100 lineup! There is also a new two-way tilting touchscreen LCD, which fits flush at the back of the camera. This offers creatives the opportunity to see, frame and set images from the convenience of touch controls.

To make the most out of any image, the X100V features a new 23mmF2.0 lens. This will ensure that every detail from its X-TRANS™ CMOS 4 Sensor is resolved beautifully! While maintaining the same overall size and compatibility as previous X100 cameras, this lens has had a significant upgrade with higher resolution, lower distortion, improved close-focus performance while retaining its internal ND filter that now features 4 stops. The X100V also boasts a start-of-the-art X-TRANS™ CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 combination. The exceptional 26.1MP sensor uses a back-illuminated design to maximize quality and dynamic range, while its unique colour filter array controls moiré and false colour without the need for an optical low pass filter.

Next on the list of improvements is the hybrid viewfinder, making it easy for users to quickly choose between the 0.52x magnification optical viewfinder (OVF) or the 3.69M dot OLED electronic viewfinder. Offering 95% frame coverage, the OVF provides parallax-correcting frame lines to provide an uninterrupted view of the world, while the camera’s EVF delivers a real-time representation of the image as it is being made. There is also the Electronic Rangefinder (ERF) function, which displays a small EVF at the bottom right corner of the OVF, offering another helpful option for creatives.

The X100V is also more than just a stills camera. With the ability to record 4K video at up to 30 frames per second or capture 120 frames per second at 1080p to create super-slow-motion effects. Filmmakers needing extreme colour fidelity can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 colour externally via the HDMI port and leverage Fujifilm’s advanced colour reproduction technology, to apply film simulations, like “Eterna”, to their video footage. Additionally, users can also incorporate numerous shooting functions, such as “Monochrome Adjustments” and “Color Chrome” to extend their creative visions directly to the footage being recorded.
