Fujifilm has announced the latest mirrorless camera model in its X series lineup, and the name of the model is X-T100. It is said to be an entry-level body in the X series stable for the photographers who are trying to give some specs, features, and portability which is offered by the X-T20 to make the cost low.
The new X-T100 model is said to be priced relatively low which blends Fujifilm’s aesthetic with more conventional and mainstream design. The form factor is like SLR, and the rear controls are nearly identical to the X-T20. This is considered as the best X-series entry point. There is no grip, and the electronic viewfinder “dome” ha tilts back to reveal the pop-up flash, and it also has a horizontal tilting touchscreen.
The inside of the X-T100 is an about24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor which is not X-Trans. It has also got the high-speed imaging processor which is not X-Processor Pro. The sensor has got an ISO range of 200-12800, and it is also extendable to about 100-51200. The continuous shooting speed is 6fps and it down from 14fps in the X-T20. The startup time is about 0.4 seconds with High-performance mode on or 8 seconds with it off. The 91 point Phase Detection Autofocus system which is used in the camera has got the same algorithm which was originally designed for the high-end flagship X series models.
According to the Fujifilm, “One intelligent feature found in the X-T100 is the SR+ Auto mode that detects both the subject and the scene at the same time, selecting the best settings for capturing the best shots of both. It’s “perfect for situations where it is difficult to select the right settings, or when a series of quick shots is what the photographer is after.”
Another thing that the X-T100 shares with the X-A5 is the sensor, and it is a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor which doesn’t use Fujifilm’s own X-Trans colour array, but it goes for the same Bayer layout which is used by every other camera maker on the planet.
All the cameras share the attractive retro design and the compatibility with the Fujifilm’s best in class range of APS-C lenses. The camera will be sold from June 18th in the US, and the price for the same is at $ 599.95.
