The new Fuji X100T is the successor to the very successful Fujifilm X100S. The X100 series is possibly the most popular fixed focal length, big sensor enthusiast’s compact ever, so will the X100T live up to the reputation of it’s predecessor?
The main specifications sound promising:
- 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor
- 35mm equivalent f/2 lens
- Hybrid EVF with 2.3m dot LCD and more advanced overlays in optical mode
- 3.0″ 1.04m dot rear LCD (720 x 480 pixels)
- Macro shooting down to 10cm (3.9″)
- Built-in Wi-Fi with remote control function
- Rear command dial
- Six ccustomisable buttons
- Built-in ND filter
- Optional electronic shutter mode (which increases the maximum shutter speed to 1/32000 sec)
- 1080p movies at 60, 50, 30, 25 and 24fps with exposure control for movies
- Stereo mic input (2.5mm-type)
While the sensor and lens are the same as in the X100S, the improvement on the camera are quite significant.
The LCD has been upgraded to feature 1.04 million dots while the new Hybrid Viewfinder now sports a 2.3 million dot high resolution screen. You can also control the electronic viewfinder by changing the brightness, a common feature many X-Series photographers like. Also, when using the viewfinder as an optical viewfinder you can overlay information so it’s projected on a dark area allowing you to clearly see image data in all lighting conditions.
The X100T has some updated external controls which are similarly found on the X-T1. These include a ±3 exposure compensation dial, an aperture ring with 1/3 step increments and seven customisable function buttons. Futhermore some of the newer menu features include a new film simulation called Classic Chrome which is supposed to represent the colours of traditional rival film companies.
All in all Fujifilm has listened to it’s customers and hasn’t changed anything they didn’t need to based on their previous two models.
