eart-stoppingly beautiful. Though “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” the Fujifilm X100F (and X100T, X100S and X100 before it) is one of those cameras that can literally stop you in your track. It’s a well-implemented retro look that other camera brands have tried to–but have not quite succeeded in–achieving: it’s the viewfinder, the viewfinder selector lever, the milled metallic dials and shutter, all in the correct dimensions and placement in a distinctive compact design.
The Fujifilm X100F is not an interchangeable lens camera, i.e. not “mirrorless,” and will therefore not accept interchangeable lenses. Rather, it is what we call a (large-sensor fixed-lens) Premium Compact camera. It has a large APS-C sensor for outstanding image quality rivaling DSLRs and a fixed focal-length wide-angle 35mm (equiv) lens with a fast F2 aperture.
Like the more expensive mirrorless X-Pro2 and X-T2, the Fujifilm X100F also has dedicated controls: shutter speed dial, aperture ring, manual focus ring, exposure compensation dial, and now a “lift and turn” ISO dial. For photographers who love the retro look & feel, these controls give them an intuitive way to directly control exposure settings and set the X100F uniquely apart from other premium compact competitors.
What’s New (compared to the X100T)
- A higher resolution sensor (from 16.3-MP to 24.3-MP).
- 325 AF points includes 91 phase-detection focusing points. Boasts a 0.08 sec. AF speed.
- Focus Lever for quick AF point placement.
- Exposure Compensation Dial now sports a C position for +/- 5 stops (using the Front Command Dial).
- Faster Continuous Shooting: 8 fps (60 JPEG/25 RAW).
- New ACROS Film Simulation mode.
- An easier-to-use menu.
