Fujifilm X100V Takes Home The Gold From DPReview


The Fujifilm X100 kick off Fujifilm’s modern digital line of cameras so it should come as no surprise that it took home a solid gold from DPReview. In the past the camera has gone between gold and silver, but the X100V represents a back to back gold with the X100F, so it seems the X100 has finally arrived at a sold Gold status, but I would honestly enjoy shooting any of the X100 cameras. You can read the full review here and see what they didn’t and didn’t like below.

What we like What we don’t
  • Updated 26MP sensor offers good noise performance and fast readout
  • Excellent, highly tunable JPEG engine with good detail and noise reduction
  • Multiple film simulations with truly pleasing color output
  • Redesigned lens removes close-up ‘haze’ of previous models and improves corner performance
  • Class-leading 4K video capabilities
  • Tilting touchscreen
  • Great electronic / optical viewfinder
  • Good build quality, optional weather-sealing
  • Impressive low-light autofocus
  • Limited customizable buttons with elimination of four-way controller (Touchscreen function swipes won’t be to everyone’s taste)
  • Outright autofocus speed is still on the slow side
  • Face-and-eye detection UI a bit clunky
  • Full weather-sealing requires additional purchase
  • Some odd customization limitations, particularly for My Menu
  • Menus are getting overly complex
  • AF performance is less effective in OVF
  • Redesigned OVF makes it harder to anticipate AF point location
