Fujifilm X-T100 review

The mirrorless X-T100 combines style, value and a viewfinder

Fujifilm X-T100 review

Digital Camera World Verdict

Occasional overexposure and some too easily pressed buttons are just minor annoyances. The X-T100 has a simple, classical design, a practical and compact kit lens, and a very effective control layout. The image quality is top-drawer too. It’s comparatively low-price camera that feels like a more expensive model.

The X-T100 is by no means Fujifilm’s most advanced X-mount mirrorless camera yet, but it could prove to be one of its most important. That’s because it fills a crucial gap in the mirrorless market and takes on DSLRs at their own game.

Until recently, mirrorless cameras have fallen into two main groups: low-cost cameras with no viewfinders and simplified controls for smartphone upgraders, and altogether more advanced cameras with viewfinders for enthusiasts and pros, but with a price tag to match.
