The Fujifilm FinePix X100 was a camera that represented a significant step forward for the industry since it was one of the first big sensor, prime lens cameras to garner broad acceptance. Its classic appearance, which were blatantly stolen from a particular German camera manufacturer, were justified by the exceptional image quality that its 35mm equivalent f/2 lens was capable of producing. It was also an unusual example of a camera whose manufacturer continued to develop it for a significant amount of time after it was released to the public. The original Fujifilm X100, when updated to the most recent firmware, is a far more capable camera than the version that was released initially by Fujifilm. It is remarkable that development on this project has continued even after the Fujifilm X100S, which is of the second generation, was released.

In order to produce the X100T, Fujifilm has maintained the process of improving, refining, and evolving their previous cameras. On the surface, it has a striking resemblance to the first model; yet, inside the skin, it conceals a plethora of improvements, alterations, and new components that promise to make it an even greater advancement than what came before. It is difficult not to recognize the use of the kaizen methodology, which is a Japanese term for continuous improvement and is often used, in Fujifilm’s approach to the development of its X line of cameras.
Therefore, at its core, the X100T is similar to its predecessor, the X100S, in that it has a CMOS sensor with 16 megapixels, an X-Trans color filter array, and an outstanding lens with a focal length of 23 millimeters and an aperture of 2. However, practically everything beyond that has been redesigned, reevaluated, or improved upon.
The hybrid viewfinder, which has been overhauled, is perhaps the single most significant modification to the camera. The X100’s innovative viewfinder, which offered both an electronic and an optical mode and allowed for the superimposition of shooting settings, was one of the reasons for the camera’s popularity. The finder of the X100T has been upgraded to include a 2.3 million dot LCD display, and it also has a ‘tab’ that can pop up in the optical finder to darken it. This makes it possible for projected information to be viewed clearly in all lighting settings. This tab notifies the user that the Digital Split Image manual focus technology of the camera may be used in conjunction with the optical viewfinder mode to provide an experience similar to that of using a rangefinder for manual focusing.
Cleverly, it has been added without the need for any additional control points: the small lever on the front of the camera that switched to the electronic viewfinder in earlier models can now also be nudged to the left to engage the in-viewfinder tab. This allows the in-viewfinder tab to be used without the need for any additional control points.
Additionally, the X100T comes equipped with a completely electronic shutter mode. The maximum shutter speed may now reach an amazing 1/32000 of a second thanks to this improvement, which also makes operation completely quiet. Because using the electronic shutter exposes the user to the possibility of rolling shutter, they have the option to toggle it on and off depending on their preferences.

The X100T is a wonderful piece of photographic equipment that is fun to use and is capable of producing stunning photographs. Its autofocus is beginning to show signs of its age, and the benefits of its distinctive X-Trans sensor are difficult to notice in a period where competitors offer 24 and 28 MP resolutions. On the other hand, there is currently nothing that can compete with it in terms of the size/price/image quality balance that it provides as well as the flair with which it does it.
- Optical and electrical components combined into one viewfinder.
- Wide-aperture prime lens.
- Excellent method of command and control.
- Superior image quality at high ISO settings.
- Emulation of the classic Chrome film style.
- There are adapters for both wide-angle and telephoto photography available.
- Instantaneous autofocus.
- Continuous shooting at 6 frames per second.
- No image stabilization.
- Larger than most other small cameras with big sensors.
- The lens has a problem with the edges being too soft.
- When photographed with a wide aperture, macro photography results in a blurry, out-of-focus appearance.
- The video might use some improvements.
