Fujifilm’s stylish ace The sleek X-T100 is Fujifilm’s latest addition to its range of popular X-series mirrorless cameras and comes at an attractive price

As far as camera naming goes, the general rule is that models with more numbers are more consumer focused and single- digit cameras are more pro-oriented. On that simple basis you know that the Fujifilm X-T100 is an entry-level X-series camera and that’s confirmed by its price; £619 with the new EC 15- 45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens. Its entry-level price, however, buys you an impressive features set and certainly looks a great option for would-be Fujifilm X-series owners, or existing users wanting a back-up camera body. The X-T100’s sleek, compact bodyform has an

ergonomic layout including three large mode dials on the top-plate and an innovative monitor.

The body houses an extensive collection of features that includes a 24.2-megapixel APS-C format sensor, a 91-point AF system with an algorithm designed for the flagship X-series cameras and Bluetooth connectivity. The sensor uses a conventional Bayer array – so it’s not an X-Trans model as found on more advanced cameras – with a native ISO range of 200 to 12,800 with expansion up to 51,200 possible. The Fujifilm X-T100 is available in store from late June.
