The Fuji X100V is a large-sensor fixed-lens compact camera that boasts an array of advanced imaging capabilities and an advanced wide-angle lens. It’s the successor to the X100F. Key features include:
Improved operation speed and shooting rate
26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor; X-Processor 4 engine
Fast, quiet, and accurate 425-point autofocus system
Updated Fujinon 23mm f/2 lens
What’s Changed. The Fuji X100V features quite a few improvements over its predecessor, the X100F, including an improved 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, an X-Processor 4 engine, a redesigned lens, UHD and DCI 4K video capture, an updated autofocus system, increased operation speed, a faster maximum continuous shooting rate, and increased battery life.
26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 Sensor. The X100V’s X-Trans 4 sensor produces extremely sharp and clear images throughout its normal ISO range of 160-12800, thanks to the omission of a low-pass filter.
X-Processor 4 Engine. The X-Processor 4 engine facilitates great low-light performance and supercharges operation speed. It greatly reduces startup time, shutter lag, and navigation. The combination of this engine and the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor increases the maximum continuous shooting rate to 11 fps and extends the ISO-sensitivity range to 80-51200.
UHD and DCI 4K Video. The X100V captures 4K UHD/DCI video at up to 30p in addition to capturing in Full HD at up to 120 fps. The micro-HDMI port lets you record 10-bit 4:2:2 footage to an optional external recorder, and you can use one of Fuji’s many built-in film-simulation modes to give your footage a distinct look.
Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder. The Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder lets you switch between optical viewfinder (OVF) and electronic viewfinder (EVF) modes with a dedicated lever. The 0.52x-magnification OVF mode recalls traditional rangefinder cameras, with an electronic rangefinder that you can manually adjust for improved accuracy. The 3.69m-dot EVF mode gives you 100% frame coverage and access to advanced electronic focusing options and precision manual focusing. Its fast refresh rate keeps lag to a minimum for smooth panning and tracking.
Intelligent 425-Point Hybrid Autofocus System. The X100V’s hybrid autofocus system uses contrast- and phase-detection methods for fast, accurate performance in a wide range of lighting conditions. Its 425 selectable points cover almost the entire sensor for pinpoint focusing, even when capturing a fast-moving subject.
Redesigned Fujinon 23mm f/2 Lens. This integrated wide-angle lens features a revised six-group/eight-element optical design that incorporates two aspherical elements for even greater sharpness and clarity. This lens provides a focal length equivalent to 35mm after sensor crop, which makes it great for everyday use. The fast f/2 aperture lets you shoot in low light, while giving you great depth-of-field control for subject-background isolation. While this lens is a fixed focal length, the X100V includes 50mm- and 75mm-equivalent digital teleconverter settings that simulate longer focal lengths.
Film-Simulation Modes. The X100V includes several film-simulation modes to give your shots and footage a distinct look based on many of Fujifilm’s classic film types. You get a number of monochrome modes that simulate the effects of color filters, and a Grain Effect mode that gives your shots an old-timey look.
Ergonomics and Build. The retro-styled body features physical control dials for setting selection, and precision ISO and shutter-speed adjustments; a tilting 3.0-inch, 1.62m-dot touchscreen LCD; and a rear joystick for autofocus control, menu navigation, and image playback. Most of the controls are on the right-hand side of the X100F for easy one-handed shooting.
Additional Features. Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth let you wirelessly share images and use a linked mobile device to remotely control the camera. The X100V is powered by an NP-W126S battery, which gives you approximately 350 shots per charge when working with the EVF or 420 shots per charge with the OVF. You also get a single UHD-I compatible SD-card slot.
