Now, to be honest this was one camera review I actually did not plan on doing (with me trying to manage my main job, kids and life itself) but haha, yes, the X-T100 did end up in my hands due to the generosity of a very close friend and I am again humbled and very glad to share my thoughts about this latest release from Fujifilm.
And this was with no regrets, for the X-T100 does come with its own unique surprises – for example: even better than the ubiquitous ‘Smile Shutter‘, the X-T100 comes with its own ‘Buddy Mode‘ in SR+ where you get to define your level of ‘buddiness’ from Level 1 to 3 and so on. (Its super fun at how this can be super awkward)
I guess the first reaction most will have is ‘wut, a X-T100?’
Where does this camera model sit in the Fujifilm family?
Let me (try to) help.
At the top tier of the Fujifilm DSLR-inspired design (centered EVF) X-mount range of cameras, we have the single digits, the X-H1 (my review of this evolutionary camera here) and X-T2. The single digit models sit above the double digits – the X-T20 and these are all cameras equipped with Fujifilm’s propriety X-Trans III sensors.
The newly released Fujifilm X-T100 sports a Bayer type sensor and it sits nicely below the X-T20 and above the Fujifilm’s Bayer sensor series, the X-A range of cameras.
In another way, we can say the X-T100 is the top-end camera in Fujifilm’s Bayer sensor range of cameras and the only one in this series equipped with an EVF and much more.
(of course, we also have the X-Pro and X-E range of X-mount cameras but these are the rangefinder design family of cameras and do not fall under the X-T line of cameras).
ok, i hope that was helpful…
