The Fujifilm X100T is an even faster version of the old X100S.

The FUJIFILM X100T. Packed with new features such as the world's first electronic rangefinder – a high-quality fusion of optics and electronics – and the Classic Chrome mode, offering the simulation of a classic film style, photographers can combine their passion for shooting with the thrill of controlling their camera once more.
Key Features:

  • 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor (with on-sensor phase detection elements)

  • 'Classic Chrome' film simulation mode
  • 1080p movies at 60, 50, 30, 25 and 24fps
  • Exposure control for movies

  • Stereo mic input (2.5mm-type)

The Fujifilm X100T boasts of the same 23mm f/2 prime lens that is found in its predecessors, the X100 and the X100S. However, it also includes the same engine, sensor, lens and body as the previous two generations of the X100 series.

The biggest change for the X100T is the improvements on the camera's Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, which now includes an electronic rangefinder. The electronic rangefinder allows users to focus on the subject as if the X100T had a mechanical rangefinder, with the feature activated by simply pressing the OVF / EVF lever while using the optical viewfinder.

Another change for the camera's viewfinder is that the frame coverage of the Fujifilm X100T has been made bigger to 92%, from the previous coverage of 90 percent, with the field of view of the camera now able to be more accurately compared to the actual photo subject. The X100T also comes with built in Wi-Fi support to put the camera in line with most of the cameras that are being released into the market today.

The X100T comes with a slightly bigger LCD screen, which increased from 2.8 inches to 3 inches. The resolution of the LCD screen is also much higher now, with 1.04 million dot resolution.

The Fujifilm X100T features a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor and has an intelligent hybrid autofocus of 0.08 seconds, a start-up time of 0.5 seconds, a shutter time lag of 0.01 seconds and a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds.

The Fujifilm X100T also adds a fully electronic shutter mode. This enables totally silent operation and increases the maximum shutter speed to an impressive 1/32000 sec. There is a risk of rolling shutter when the electronic shutter is used, so it can be turned on and off if you prefer.

The camera's aperture ring has been modified, so that it can now be controlled in 1/3 f-stops, rather than the whole stops that the existing models offered. The exposure compensation dial has also been amended so that it now extends to +/- 3EV - something existing users had been calling out for. The other big change, in terms of exposure control is that the X100T retains the ability to apply exposure compensation when using Auto ISO in manual exposure mode, meaning that you can choose shutter speed, aperture and image brightness and let the camera do the work.

The back of the camera has undergone much simplification, with the buttons decreased in size and the AE / AF-L and drive buttons moved for easier right-thumb operation. The four navigation buttons have also become unlabeled and completely customizable by the user, bringing the total number of programmable buttons to seven. The dials have also been tweaked to work better in terms of operating them.

The camera's autofocus system has also been overhauled. The first addition is the inclusion of Face Detection - something we noted as missing from the existing models. There's also an option to tie spot auto exposure mode to the selected AF point, if you wish.

The final addition is the inclusion of the 'Classic Chrome' film simulation mode. Classic Chrome was inspired by feedback and requests from X Series photographers and its look is inspired by printed images in magazines from the glory days of photo journalism, rather than a specific film type. With slightly muted tones and deep color reproduction, it's a clear departure from the existing five types. Rather than a pure record of the scene, Classic Chrome offers photographers a more expressive, and artistic look to their shots.
