DPReview TV: Fujifilm X-T100 Review

Chris and Jordan of DPReview tested the Fujifilm X-T100 and found it to be a great camera for people looking to get into photographer. It’s a camera that can grow with you in their opinion and I agree, but I found it interesting that they brought up X-Trans. Fujifilm does seem to be pushing away from X-Trans with quite a few of their cameras and it could be a sign of things to come.

I think X-Trans and the unique processing needed to make it presentable adds a little something to the Fujifilm look, but they have managed to maintain the look in cameras like the Fujifilm GFX50S so maybe we will have fewer X-Trans cameras going forward as pixel count goes up. I know some have looked forward to its retirement, while others have clung to it for no go reason.

Pros
Top left dial default of color profiles is programmable
The EVF and LCD are good for the price point
The LCD articulation is one of the best out there
Good graphic interface for menus
The new colors are great
Great with and without the grip
Built-in flash with decent power
Bluetooth/Wifi
430 shots per charge
XC15-45 focuses very smoothly
Improved AF over Fujifilm X-A5
Close to Canon Rebel performance
X-Trans not really needed today
Mic Jack
Reasonable 1080p

Very enjoyable to use
X-T100 > Canon EOS M50

Cons
No ACROS
Few steps in the XC15-45 zoom that bug Chris
Quick menu needs updating
The little nipple that covers the grip screw is easy to lose
The plastic dial on the back is in a weird position and can’t be customized
Quick menu button should be customizable to AF on and FN to the quick menu
Laggy touchscreen
XC15-45 is very plasticy
4k15p is basically useless but cleaner than 1080p
Bad Record button
