Fujifilm Intros Retro-Style and Compact Fujifilm X-T100 Mirrorless Camera

The Fujifilm North America Corporation this morning introduced the Fujifilm X-T100, a compact, mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera with a sleek, retro-style design. Available in colors that Fujifilm calls Black, Dark Silver, and Champagne Gold, the new Fujifilm X-T100 comes equipped with a high magnification electronic viewfinder, horizontal tilting rear LCD screen, built-in Bluetooth technology designed for quick and easy image sharing, and an extended battery life allowing up to 430 frames per charge. In addition, the entry-level Fujifilm X-T100 weighs just under a pound (15.8 ounces) with anodized coating on aluminum top cover.

Fitted with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and a ramped up image processing engine, the Fujifilm X-T100 is compatible with the full X Mount lens lineup of 26 Fujinon lenses which cover focal lengths from 15mm to 1200mm (35mm equivalent). The Fujifilm X-T100 uses a Phase Detection Autofocus system and algorithm originally designed for flagship X Series models, to help produced quick and precise capture of images even when photographing fast-moving subjects.

The Fujifilm X-T100 mirrorless camera also features an advanced SR+ Auto shooting mode that is capable of detecting the subject and scene simultaneously, and selecting the optimum settings accordingly to provide intelligent, fully-automatic shooting, Fujfilm said. This mode is designed for situations where it is difficult to select the right settings, or when shooting a series of quick shots.

The Fujifilm X-T100 features a three-inch touch panel display. With 1.04-million dots of resolution, the screen swings out horizontally to almost 180 degrees. This is designed to help compose shots at awkward angles, and make it possible to take selfies or shoot video blogs with a view of what’s in the frame.

Although the Fujifilm X-T100 has a classic, retro-style look, the camera body weighs 15.8 ounces with battery and memory card, so it’s designed to be small and light for travel. It also comes with a shoulder strap and a detachable grip.

Modes, Movies & Features
The Fujifilm X-T100 offers 11 variations of Fujifilm Film Simulation modes and 17 variations of Advanced Filters, which are designed to provide photographers with the ability to add greater artistic expression to images. Setting adjustments on the X-T100 is designed to be quick and easy with one-step operation that is made possible via the function and exposure compensation dials on top of the body, and the touch-and-flick function available on the rear LCD monitor.

With 4K and the option to shoot in slow motion, Fujifilm X-T100 is made for video too. Full HD movies can be shot at speeds of up to 59.94fps for super-smooth footage. To help maximize sound quality, the X-T100 is equipped with a microphone port so videographers can record audio from a compatible external microphone (sold separately).

The Fujifilm X-T100 features the latest Bluetooth low energy technology, allowing users to quickly and seamlessly transfer images using the free “FUJIFILM Camera Remote” app. This function enables constant image transfer, even while in shooting mode, so images can be uploaded and shared within moments.
