The electronic viewfinder is included in the Fujifilm X-T100, which is the company’s most affordable model in the X-series of cameras. It has a hybrid autofocus mechanism and a 24 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, both of which are shared with the entry-level X-A5 model. The LCD on the X-T100, in contrast to the LCD on that camera and the X-T20 that sits above it, has a distinctive design that enables it to tilt and fold out to the side but does not permit it to rotate.

The X-T100, however, inherits more from the X-A5 than it does from the X-T20, which means that there are some concessions to be made. The battery life is outstanding, the design and construction quality are both very good, and the image quality is really good. Unfortunately, the performance of the camera as a whole is slow, its focusing mechanism is unable to properly follow anything that is moving, and its so-called “4K” footage is more akin to an extended burst mode (quality is poor, as well).
Spending the additional $200 on the X-T20 is money well spent, in our opinion, for those who take pleasure in the Fujifilm shooting experience. If you wish to stick to the same price range, rival cameras made by Canon, Olympus, and Panasonic might be superior options in many ways.
The X-T100 has an outstanding collection of features, provided that you are not a professional videographer. The electronic viewfinder (EVF) looks amazing, and the articulating LCD, which allows the screen to tilt as well as flip sideways, giving you the best of both worlds. Even though the buffer on the X-T100 is far greater than the one on the X-A5, it still fills up quite rapidly while shooting in Raw mode. However, considering the price of the camera (600 dollars), it is more than sufficient (body only).
One of the most significant distinctions between the X-A5/X-T100 and the more costly X-T20 is that the latter makes use of an X-Trans color filter on its sensor as opposed to the more conventional Bayer filter. When resolutions were lower, many people would say that X-Trans had an edge over Bayer sensors. However, now that everything is at 24 megapixels, we are not sure that there is much of a difference between the two types of sensors.
The X-T100 may be purchased either as a body-only kit for the price of $599 or as a complete system with a 15-45mm equiv. F3.5-5.6 power zoom lens for the price of $699. The bodies come in either black or a “champagne gold” finish.

The Fujifilm X-T100 is a mirrorless SLR camera that has superb photo quality, in addition to a one-of-a-kind articulating LCD, a high-resolution viewfinder, and a battery life that is quite impressive. However, its autofocus subject tracking capabilities are quite disappointing, and it can only record at a frame rate of 15 fps at 4K resolution, and the video quality is subpar overall.
- Excellent JPEG quality
- The sensor exhibits low noise even while operating at high ISOs.
- Unique LCD design tilts and flips outward
- Exceptionally well-built for the cost.
- Experimenting with the different film simulation modes is encouraged by the third dial.
- Long life from the battery
- Charging through USB
- Including the grip
- Autofocus that is not very good for moving subjects.
- Unsatisfactory performance in face detection
- Slow user interface
- There is a discernible lag between pushing the video record button and the beginning of the footage.
- Sharpening is set a little too strong by default in JPEG.
- Customization to a limited extent
- Not a serious feature, 4K video at 15 frames per second.
- Poor video quality (4K and 1080p)
- When shooting Raw bursts, the buffer fills up quite rapidly.
- The Q Menu cannot be accessed using the touchscreen.
- The Multi-Focus function is laborious and clumsy.
