Fujifilm released their latest camera, the Fujifilm X100V. This camera is the fifth generation of the X100 series. Fujifilm X100V comes with features that are better than the previous series. The success of the Fuji X100 at that time was caused by the street photographer who missed a fairly compact camera. But with a rangefinder-style optical viewfinder design like an old film camera.
There are a number of new things in the Fujifilm X100V, such as lenses, sensors and rear screens that are different from the previous series. The X100V uses the same sensor as the X-T3, X-T30, and X-Pro3, the 26.1 megapixel X-Trans IV CMOS APS-C sensor.
There is also a new ‘film simulations’ filter and a number of features in the software, such as HDR and clarity settings that were previously present in X-Pro3.
What are the features of the Fujifilm X100V?
Differences from the previous Series X100
The biggest difference from the Fujifilm X100V is the rear screen. The back screen of the Fujifilm X100V can be folded up and down. Like a number of Fuji cameras before, the four-way D-pad button is now removed. Furthermore, the specifications of the X100V. The specifications of the X100V are more reliable when compared to its predecessor series.
There are new filter simulations and also some additional features in the software. Starting from HDR as well as setting on clarity that was previously present in X-Pro3.
Besides that it also carries a new lens, which is 23 mm f / 2.0. This lens is claimed to have smaller distortion when compared to the previous version of the X100 camera.

Fujifilm X100V Camera Body and Buttons
Fujifilm X100V still maintains the style of the rangefinder camera. As for the camera body, the X100V is not like its predecessor. This camera is not made of magnesium alloy. The body material is made of aluminum with a satin coating. The body is also now weather resistant. The lens he uses is 23mm f / 2.0 newer which has smaller distortion than the previous X100, also a better minimum focus distance.
The camera is also equipped with several play buttons and manual controls. This is one of the characteristics of the Fuji camera. However, there are different in X100V. Because, Fujifilm X100V don’t has four-way button. The four-way button which is replaced with a joystick and touch screen operation can certainly be polemic between the Fuji X shooter. Some may be happy, but there may also be those who feel lost. Because the feeling of “tactile” when pressing buttons is different from the touch screen or using a joystick.
As previously explained. X100V has increased in performance. First in terms of the ability to take pictures. This model is able to shoot around 11 fps using continuous AF or 20 fps using an electronic shutter. Owned AF can detect up to 429 points as in XX-T3 and X-Pro3. In addition, the flash sync speed reaches 1/1000 seconds at f / 2, 1/2000 at f / 4-16 and 1/4000 at f / 8-16.
Flash sync is classified as very fast thanks to the design of the leaf shutter and with the built-in ND filter feature 4 stops, we can create with flash / strobist very bright conditions without problems. Note that the ND filter is for photography only, does not apply when recording video.
This camera is also equipped with an LCD screen panel having a resolution of 1.62 million dots. In addition, there are features detecting faces, eyes and subjects. This is very useful when the camera is used to take pictures on the streets.
The ability to record video at 30 fps at 10 bit color depth and 4K resolution. There is also a slow-motion recording that has a Full HD resolution of 120 fps.
Fujifilm X100V battery capacity can make the camera last up to 350 shots when using EVF. When using an optical viewfinder, you can shoot up to 420 times.
Another feature in the Fujifilm X100V specification is the USB-C 3.1 port. This connectivity feature will make data transfers run faster. But unfortunately this X100V only supports UHS-1 card slots. So that when shooting continuous speed will be limited.
Fujifilm X100V price is 1,400 US Dollars, comparable to the Fujifilm X100V specifications. Available in very attractive colors, black and silver. Various changes to the latest Fujifilm cameras make its performance more reliable.
Starting from changes in body design, camera lens enhancements and additional interesting features will spoil the users more. The specifications of the Fujifilm X100V which are further improved from the previous generation will be more capable when used. Fujifilm continues to strive to make changes to its products.
