A first-rate advanced compact shoots for stellar

 

With a new sensor, better autofocus system and more streamlined design, the X100 line evolves into a great camera with the Fujifilm X100F.

The Fujifilm X100F produces excellent photos and the updated autofocus system is a great improvement. Plus, it improves on the control layout and retains the manual-optimized shooting design and fast lens that have made it a favorite.

Sad battery life.

An advanced compact for wide-angle and manual-photography fans, the Fujifilm X100F improves upon an already great camera with better autofocus performance and a fine-tuned design on top of its already excellent photo quality.

Fujifilm X100F

 

The Fujifilm X100F is everything a premium compact camera should be, capturing SLR-quality images in a form factor that slides into your jacket pocket.

Crisp wide-angle lens. Bright f/2 aperture. In-lens ND filter. Fast autofocus. Hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder. Focus select joystick. 1/4,000-second leaf shutter. Physical control dials. Film Simulation modes. Wi-Fi.

Lens lacks stabilization. Video limited to 1080p. Sometimes struggles with tracking subjects.

The Fujifilm X100F is the best entry in the series yet thanks to refined controls and a big upgrade in image quality with a 24MP image sensor that delivers better autofocus and high ISO performance. The unique hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder set...

Fujifilm X100F Review

 

Fujifilm's X100F is the most refined variant of the company's 35mm equiv APS-C camera. But does the latest version retain the charm to attract new buyers to offer enough improvement to re-enthuse existing users? Read more

Fujifilm X100F

 

Surprisingly, Fujifilm opted to limit video recording to Full HD 1080/60p, which is a shame, but at least there are some fun film simulations modes -- including the newest iteration, ACROS, which Fujifilm says "offers smooth gradation, deep blacks and...

Outstanding image quality in all types of scenes ; Minimal noise in photos shot at high native ISO settings ; Prime f/2 lens produces very sharp detail in images ; 91-point AF mode is upgrade over X100F's predecessor ; Full manual control modes,...

Camera's operational aspects are a little quirky; it takes some practice to use this model efficiently ; Lack of a mode dial may confuse some photographers at first ; Combination shutter speed/ISO dial is odd, but it's functional once you get the hang...

The Fujifilm X100F is a camera that has some design oddities, along with a really high price. But for the right photographer, its high-quality images and sharp f/2 prime lens is going to give you images that you can't easily duplicate with other...

Fujifilm X100F review: Fixed-lens finery

 

You might need to be as rich as a king to buy one, but then the X100F is indeed king of the fixed-lens compacts. Nothing else compares to this

Unique hybrid viewfinder is amazing ; Enhanced autofocus system with easy-to-use focus lever to rear ; Great lens and image quality ; Solid build quality ; Electronic shutter is near-silent (up to 1/32 ; 000th sec)

It's really expensive ; Close-up focus won't produce sharp shots at wider apertures ; 35mm equivalent lens won't suit all ; Still no vari-angle screen or touch controls ; Still no true ISO 100 sensitivity

There's no ignoring the the X100F is a niche product that won't suit a great many people. There's no optical zoom. Close-up shooting isn't great at the widest aperture, due to resulting softness. It's also hugely expensive at £1,249 (a result of the...

Fujifilm X100F review

 

Lovely to look at, even better to shoot with

Beautiful design ; Hybrid viewfinder ; Excellent image quality ; Bigger battery ; Film simulation modes

ISO dial not that practical ; 1080p video only

With the X100F, Fujifilm has pretty much made the perfect enthusiast compact camera. While on the face if it little appears to have changed, the X100F heralds the biggest set of improvements yet, making the X100F the camera we always wanted the X100 to...

Fujifilm X100F review: Only the price will put you off

 

Fujifilm's excellent X100F is a go-anywhere compact which provides the ultimate in mirrorless image quality

First-rate build quality ; Superb image sharpness ; Myriad features

Expensive ; Not as pocketable as true compacts

Price is the only thing that will hold off enthusiasts in need of a go-anywhere camera from opting for the X100F. In terms of looks, handling, features and performance, it's first-rate.

Fujifilm X100F review

 

The previous generation of Fujifilm's popular enthusiast "compact" with an APS-C-size sensor, the X100T , had been around for over two years before Fujifilm debuted the X100F, and the camera had only gotten one significant update since it launched in...
