Ten years in charge of the appearance of Fuji X100V appearance evaluation
On February 5, 2020, the X100, the originator of Fuji X-series digital cameras, ushered in the X100V, the latest product in the Fuji high-end compact digital camera series. Fuji X100V is the fifth-generation product of the X100 series. Compared with the previous model, the X100V has undergone an important upgrade. It adopts a newly designed 23mmF2 lens, an improved photoelectric hybrid viewfinder, dust-proof and drip-proof, and a new rear flip Folding LCD screen and other upgrades.
X100V uses Fuji’s latest generation of X-Trans™ CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 processor. This excellent 26.1 million pixel sensor adopts a back-illuminated design to improve picture quality and dynamic range. Its unique color filter array can control moiré and noise, eliminating the need for optical low-pass filters. The quad-core X-Processor 4 complements this excellent imaging capability.
The hybrid viewfinder is also a major feature of the Fuji X100 series. The X100V uses the same improved hybrid viewfinder as the X-Pro3 released last year. The new photoelectric hybrid viewfinder, EVF uses 3.69 million pixel OLED panel, with advanced display performance. In OVF mode, a small EVF window can also be displayed through the new “Electronic Rangefinder” function to help check the electronic settings.
Fuji X100V main parameters:
overall Appearance design
Although five generations of products have gone through, the overall design concept of the Fuji X100 series has been inherited. X100V also follows this philosophy.
Fuji X100V machine The front of the body
The front of X100V is not much different from that of Chiyo’s X100F, but there are some changes in the details. For example, the AF assist lamp/Selfie lamp has changed from a square shape to a round shape, and the flash has become more slender.
Fuji X100V machine Back of the body
The back of the body has a large change. The first is that X100V introduces a folding LCD screen for the first time in the X100 series. Secondly, the X100V continues the extremely simplified button design of the Fuji camera in the past two years. The cross selection button on the X100F is cancelled. Of course, there is nothing to operate. inconvenient.
Fuji X100V machine Top of the body
The design of the top of the X100V body is consistent with that of the X100F. The setting buttons are concentrated on the right side. Through the two dials here, users can easily set the shutter speed, sensitivity and exposure compensation.
Fuji X100V machine The bottom of the body
The bottom design of the X100V is the battery compartment, tripod jack, and speaker design of a traditional digital camera.
Fuji X100V machine On the right side of the body
Fuji X100V on the right side of the fuselage can see the viewfinder diopter adjustment and lens focus mode switch button.
Fuji X100V machine On the left side of the body
On the left side of the body are the microphone/remote shutter release interface, micro HDMI interface and Type-C USB interface.
Body design details
Fuji X100V lens
Fuji X100V uses a brand-new 23mmF2.0 lens, to ensure that it can cooperate with X-TransTM CMOS 4 sensor to show every detail well . In order to improve resolution, reduce distortion and optimize macro shooting performance, this lens has been significantly improved compared to the previous lenses used by the X100 series cameras, but it still maintains the same overall as the optional WCL/TCL conversion lens Size and compatibility, while still retaining its internal 4-speed ND filter.
Fuji X100V Optoelectronics Hybrid viewfinder
The photoelectric hybrid viewfinder of the X100V is the same as the previous X-Pro3, and is the latest evolution of the hybrid viewfinder. It improves the resolution and brightness. EVF adopts 3.69 million pixel OLED panel with advanced display performance. EVF uses a very bright 1500cd/㎡ high-brightness panel, so even in shadow and high-brightness conditions, it can display fine details. Due to the high-resolution display of EVF, the details of highlights and shadows are more obvious, ensuring that the captured images are exactly the same as what you see. The electronic rangefinder function in OVF mode combines OVF and EVF to provide a unique experience. You can see an electronic preview of the scene in the lower right corner, while still shooting with OVF.
Fuji X100V LCD Screen
Fuji X100V is equipped with a folding LCD screen on the X100 series for the first time, providing users with more options for shooting angles. At the same time, it also provides intuitive touch control, providing users with more possibilities for viewing, composition and innovation.
Fuji X100V storage Card slot
For memory cards, X100V supports SD/ SDHC/ SDXC memory cards.
Fuji X100V battery
X100V uses a 1260mAh lithium battery of model NP-W126S as a power source, and uses an optical viewfinder to shoot up to the maximum battery life, about 420 shots.
Comparison between X100V and X100
The first X100 was born in 2010, and 10 years later, the series developed to the fifth-generation product X100V, which may be something no one could think of at the beginning . Below we have invited the originator of the X100 series, the X100 and the latest X100V, to go abroad together to see the changes of the X100 series in the past ten years.
Fuji X100V and The front of the X100 fuselage
The frontal comparison between the two proves that the X100 series has inherited the design concept, and the appearance has remained unchanged for ten years.
Fuji X100V and The back of the X100 fuselage
It can be seen from the back of the fuselage that Fuji’s concept of camera control has changed over the past decade. In terms of control convenience, the two are almost the same.
Fuji X100V and X100 top of the fuselage
The top of the fuselage does not have much design changes, but the performance improvement of X100V can still be seen from the details, such as the exposure compensation dial with +-3 and C files , And dual dials for shutter speed and sensitivity.
Fuji X100V and The bottom of the X100 fuselage
The bottom of the fuselage can be said to be the smallest change in the past decade.
Fuji X100V and On the right side of the X100 fuselage
, on the right side of the fuselage, the convenient focus mode switch button has been used all the time. At the same time, it can also be seen here that the lines on the focus ring of the new X100V lens have changed.
Fuji X100V and The left side of the X100 fuselage
The changes on the two interfaces are also witnesses to the performance evolution of the X100 series fuselage. The performance of the new X100V in video shooting is no longer the same. The original X100 can only shoot, but the X100V has evolved to the mainstream video shooting performance. Of course, this is also related to the change in Fuji’s concept of product use and changes in user needs.
Fuji X100V and X100 display
Folding display is the biggest innovative change of X100V to X100 series. For today’s digital cameras, the folding screen is basically a standard configuration, and the X100 series cannot be left behind.
Fuji X100V and X100 battery
Of course, the batteries used in the two have changed, and the new NP-W126S lithium battery has made great progress in battery life.
