First launched back in 2011, Fujifilm’s X100 series has gained immense popularity within the photography industry over the past decade, especially among street photographers for its discrete design and quick and intuitive performance. Now, nine years later, the Japanese electronics company is introducing the model’s fifth iteration: the X100V.
Upgrading the relatively small camera’s performance, Fujifilm has now equipped it with a larger 26-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, working in tandem with a quad-core X-Processor 4 CPU to provide high quality, high resolution images. The pancake lens’ focal length has been kept at 23mm, but its design has been enhanced to optimize functionality with the camera’s new sensor. It also remains compatible with the current wide and telephoto lens attachments, giving photographers a wider range of options to work with. Other upgrades include a new weather-seal adapter ring to increase its weather-resistance, an LCD screen that can be flipped outward, an upgraded hybrid viewfinder, 4K video recording capabilities, and a new “Classic Neg.” film mode joining the current 17 other shooting modes.
Available later this month, the new Fujifilm X100V is now open for pre-orders over at Adorama, retailing for $1,400 USD, in a black or silver finish.
