The fifth iteration in FUJIFILM X100 Series, the X100V is a significant upgrade over previous models, featuring a newly designed 23mmF2 lens, improvements to its Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, weather resistance*, and a new tilting rear LCD monitor among a host of other updates. Using the latest generation X-TransTM CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4, the X100V provides all creatives from professionals to everyday image-makers with an easy to use, fully capable, and sophisticated tool, offering incredible image quality when shooting both stills and video.
A design first approach for an image first mind
The X100Vs timeless body has top and bottom plates milled from single pieces of aluminium, which forms a refined and classic camera body with clean edges. Finished with a beautiful satin coating, slight enhancements have also been made to the camera grip, ISO dial, and lens barrel, making it much more comfortable to hold and operate. The X100V is the first camera in the X100 series to have weather resistance, when the optional AR-X100 adapter ring and the PRF-49 protection filter are attached to the cameras brand new lens. Additionally, a new two-way tilting LCD touchscreen seamlessly sits at the back of the camera and adds another first for the series as it provides intuitive touch controls, unlocking even more possibilities for image-makers to see, frame, and create images.
A new lens to make the most out of any image
The X100V features a new 23mmF2.0 lens to ensure that every detail from its X-TransTM CMOS 4 Sensor is resolved beautifully. Enhanced for better resolution and lower distortion, this lens is a significant step up from the ones used in past X100 Series cameras. However, it still maintains the same overall size and compatibility with legacy WCL/TCL conversion lenses as well as its internal 4-Stop ND filter. At the heart of the X100V is the state-of-the-art X-TransTM CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 combination. The exceptional 26.1MP sensor uses a back-illuminated design to maximise quality and dynamic range, while its unique colour filter array controls moir?? and false colour without the need for an optical low pass filter. Such outstanding imaging capability is complemented by the quad-core X-Processor 4. This powerful CPU not only ensures images are quickly and smoothly processed, but also boosts AF performance at the luminance of -5EV via a new algorithm.
See the world differently
The X100V's vastly improved hybrid viewfinder enables image-makers to quickly and easily choose between the 0.52x magnification optical viewfinder (OVF) and the 3.69M dot OLED electronic viewfinder to create their images. Offering 95% frame coverage, the OVF features parallax-correcting frame lines to provide an uninterrupted view of the world, while the cameras electronic viewfinder (EVF) delivers a real-time representation of the image. The Electronic Range Finder (ERF) function can also be selected to display a small EVF at the bottom right corner of the OVF, acting as an additional framing tool for image-makers.
