Fujifilm has unveiled its fifth generation of its iconic luxury compact. The Fujifilm X100V continues the dynasty with a raft of improved features, but the fundamental attraction of this retro-styled camera is the same – ten years since the first X100 camera was launched at Photokina 2010. 

Designed for travel and street photography, the Fujifilm X100V has a fixed wide-angle lens, and a hybrid eyelevel viewfinder, that recreates the look and feel of classic rangefinders – but with all the control and mod cons of a modern digital camera. With milled aluminum top and base plates, and a manual dials, create a traditional finish to this distinguished family of cameras.
