Fujifilm has revealed the new X100T, featuring an updated design, controls and advanced hybrid viewfinder.
The third revision of Fujifilm’s popular X100 and X100S cameras has been revealed as the Fujifilm X100T, featuring a refined design, new controls and an updated hybrid viewfinder, all built around the same great 16 megapixel X-Trans II sensor and compact 23mm f/2.0 lens.
The X100 has never claimed to be the best camera, nor the most versatile. It does a few things, and it does them very well. Fujifilm introduced the latest X100T with: “The thrill of control. The passion for shooting.” and that’s essentially what the camera is all about. It’s a compact camera with a large sensor, a brilliant fixed 23mm (equivalent to 35mm) lens, manual control dials for aperture and shutter speed, and the excellent optical/electronic hybrid viewfinder. If this sounds great to you, then read on for all the details of the latest X100T.
- Advanced hybrid viewfinder with a new option to overlay a zoomed in view of the focussing area during optical viewfinder moment, enabled with left press of the front dial.
- On-sensor phase detection autofocus sensors.
- Optional electronic shutter allowing shutter speeds up to 1/32,000.
- Updated control layout with new control wheel on the back and six user customisable buttons.
