DPR: Fujifilm X100VI Review – A Camera You Pick With Your Heart

Fujifilm X100VI Silver and Black:
B&H Photo / Amazon (Silver : Black) / Moment / Adorama

DPR posted its full review of the Fujifilm X100VI which you can read in full here. The Fujifilm X100VI is a unique camera that most photographers will choose to buy with their hearts instead of heads. I have personally rebought X100 cameras time and time again because they are a joy to use like a Leica, but there are lots of more versatile cameras that you can purchase around its price point so choose wisely. You can check out some excerpts from the review below:



  • Good image quality in JPEG and Raw
  • Excellent array of color modes for stills and video
  • Engaging direct control dials
  • Distinctive hybrid OVF/EVF
  • Combination of size, quality and styling
  • Image stabilization makes the most of high pixel-count sensor
  • Strong video capabilities
  • Decent battery life
  • Built-in ND lets you use the aperture of your choice even in bright light
  • Camera-to-cloud and smartphone app both reliable in our testing
  • Lens doesn’t focus fast enough to make the most of its new AF capabilities
  • Arguably more dials than necessary
  • Face/Eye detection separate from subject recognition, so awkward to switch back and forth
  • Function/Focus dial easily knocked (we disengage it)
  • Lens isn’t the sharpest, especially when wide-open and close-up
  • Have to use EVF or rear screen for face/eye detection
  • Not all Raw converters can get the best out of the X-Trans design
