Fujifilm’s premium digital camera gets a revamp this year with the brand’s announcement of the Fujifilm X100V.
As the latest addition to the X100 series, the camera features a sophisticated design. It has an aluminum top, a two-way tilting LCD display, a grip, and an ISO dial that contributes to its premium looks and intuitive operability.
Developed with a high-performance lens, the fifth generation of the X100 series is equipped with a 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and an X-Processor 4 chipset for high-speed image processing. It is combined with Fujifilm’s unique color reproduction technology to produce high-quality photos and videos in “memory colors”, or in layman terms, how one exactly remembers. The X100V is also the world’s only viewfinder that switches between optical to electric, providing enhanced immersive experience in photography.
Among other upgrades of the X100V include improved face and eye autofocus, fast and accurate phase-detection AF at the minimum luminance of -5EV, 17 Film Simulation modes with Classic Neg mode that simulates color negative films and Eterna mode for adapting subdued colors and rich shadow tones, 4K video recording at 30 fps, Full-HD video recording at 60 fps, and support for AR-X100 adapter ring and PRF-49 protection filter to make the camera dust-resistant and moisture-resistant.
To alter the camera’s focal length, two conversion lenses (wide and tele-conversion lenses) will be released along with the main camera.
There’s no word yet from the brand about its local pricing, but the Fujifilm X100V will be available in the latter part of February. It will come in two variants: silver and black.
