THEY ARE GETTING smaller and lighter, but they retain an incredible feature set of useful functions! The latest X-series mirrorless camera from Fujifilm, the X-T100 boasts a high magnification electronic viewfinder, a horizontal tilting rear LCD screen and an extended battery life of up to 430 frames.

The X-T100 weighs just 448 g and features an anodised-coated aluminium top cover, providing a retro look with a luxury feel, Fujifilm claims. The 24.2-megapixel APS-C size sensor is the same as the other X-series interchangeable cameras and it uses a phase detection autofocus system with a newly developed autofocus algorithm that offers faster and more precise focusing.

The standard kit lens is also new, a Fujinon XC15-45mm f3.5-5.6 OIS PZ, a small and light electronic zoom. There are now 26 lenses available in Fujifilm’s extensive line-up, covering a vast focal length range from 15mm to 1200mm (35mm format equivalent), including zoom and prime lenses.

For photographers wedded to their phones and tablets, new Bluetooth low energy technology has been incorporated for quick, easy and automatic transfer of still images to paired devices, using the free smart-device app, Fujifilm Camera Remote. The seamless transfer function provides constant image transfer, even while you’re shooting, enabling images to be shared and uploaded at a moment’s notice. The camera is also compatible with the Fujifilm Instax SP-3 printer, so you can make real photos as well as virtual ones.

Fujifilm suggests that artistic expression is made easy with its unique film simulation and advanced filter modes. The X-T100 offers 11 film simulations and 17 filter effects for your dining pleasure! However, for standard creative photography, all camera settings are quickly and easily made with one-step operation via the function dial, the exposure compensation dial or the touch-and-flick function on the rear LCD monitor.
