QUICKFACT SHEETThe Fujifilm X-T100 is an all-around entry-level APS-C mirrorless camera that takes excellent stills images. Unlike higher-level X Series mirrorless cameras that use seperate analog-style Shutter Speed dial, Exposure Compensation dial and ISO dial, the X-T100 uses a conventional Mode dial. Even so, it is stylish designed and well built. The X-T100 also uses a conventional Bayer sensor instead of the X-Trans sensor used in higher-level X Series cameras. The X-T100 is basically the X-A5 with an electronic viewfinder.
It accepts interchangeable lenses using the X mount. In addition to the excellent high quality FUJINON XF lenses, a number of cheaper, smaller and lighter XC lenses are also available. Many of the lenses have optical image stabilization (OIS).
Buy the X-T100 for its excellent JPEG images with low noise at high ISOs. It does not do so well when shooting videos, recording Full HD video at 24fps or 60fps with stereo sound. Since base ISO is set to ISO 400 when shooting videos, video image quality is not the best. Though the feature set indicates you can shoot 4K videos, it’s only at a too slow 15fps (in effect shooting 8MP stills at 15fps). You can shoot slow motion video in Full HD at 60fps or in HD at 100fps. Other video-based shooting functions include 4K Burst and 4K Multi Focus.
The X-T100 allows you to compose your shots using the high resolution 2.36M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF) or use the innovative 3.0-inch 1.04M-dot 3-way Tilt Touchscreen LCD on the back of the camera. 3-way Tilt means that it tilts up, down and to the side (in effect, it tilts up and down vertically, flips out horizontally to face forward). The LCD is also touch-screen so you can tap a point on the screen to lock focus, and use touch gestures to swipe right and left when reviewing images.
The Hybrid AF (Auto Focus) system uses a total of 91 AF points (including 35 phase-detection central points) to lock focus on your subject. It feels sluggish in use and works best when manually placing a single autofocus point on a static subject than when using subject tracking or Face AF on moving subjects.
Unique to Fujifilm are the Film Simulations that simulate the B&W and color effects of using a particular type of film. The X-T100 has 11 Film Simulations.
Other features include Continuous Shooting at 6fps, a built-in pop-up “Super Intelligent” flash (GN approx. 5m/16.4ft), a hot shoe to accept an external speedlite, RAW, PASM Shooting Modes, ±5 stops Exposure Compensation, AE Bracketing (±3 stops), Shutter Speed from 1/32000 sec. to 30 sec. (flash-sync shutter speed of 1/180 sec.), Bulb (60 min), Advanced Filter, and Scene Modes (SR Auto).
There are a number of connectivity features that make the X-T100 practical for those who post to social media sites. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth mean that you can store GPS information, do remote Live View shooting and easily transfer images to your smart phone or tablet.
The X-T100 comes with a detachable grip, and is available in Black, Dark Silver, and Champagne Gold.
