Fujifilm X-T100 Summary
Fujifilm X-T100 Assessment
The Fujifilm X-T100 is an intermediate mirrorless digital camera that packs high image-quality with a very rich feature set and efficient controls.
The 24 MP APS-C CMOS sensor in the X-T100 offers builtin Phase-Detect AF uses a traditional Bayer CFA and Anti-Alias filter stack to deliver a low price-point compared to other X-T series models. This sensor produces high-quality images with very low noise, good dynamic-range and colors, although white-balance is not perfect in low-light. There is a tendency to overexpose more than previous models which is compounded by an EVF which is unfortunately not Exposure-Priority. It is bright and moderately large while providing 100% coverage and an essential Eye-Start Sensor though.
Speed has been cut-down from its higher-end sibling which is a compromise for a relatively low-cost mirrorless. It may frustrate users just as much as motivating them to upgrade later one, particularly when it comes to autofocus. Video performance is also limited enough to turn away vloggers from this particular model.
One area where Fujifilm managed to exceed expectations with the X-T100 is its ergonomics. The triple control-dials and traditional mode-dial makes using this camera a breeze. They even packed a high number of advanced features including Time-Lapse Video, an Interval Timer, Multiple-Exposure, HDR, Extensive Bracketing modes, Focus Stacking and Bulb exposures of up to an hour.
The Fujifilm X-T100 fits nicely into the X-mount mirrorless lineup, offering a new worthy compromise for budget-conscious buyers.
