Early this morning, Fuji officially announced their third iteration of the X100 line, the X100T. The rumors had been swirling about this camera for the last couple of weeks, and today the announcement was finally made.
The X100T sticks with that classic vintage styling that we have become accustomed to from Fujifilm, and is available in both black and silver variations. It sticks with a 16.3 megapixel sensor, a sweetspot as Fuji sees it. Behind the sensor, the camera is powered by an EXR Processor II and comes with a fixed 23mm lens up front.
- 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor
- EXR Processor II
- Fujinon 23mm f/2 Fixed Focal Length Lens
- Hybrid Optical and Electronic Viewfinder
- Parallax-Correct Electronic Rangefinder
- 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot LCD Monitor
- Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps
- Intelligent Hybrid AF System
- ISO 51200, Continuous Shooting to 6 fps
- Electronic Shutter & Built-In ND Filter
One of the more interesting features that I have always liked about the X100 series is the inclusion of a built in ND filter, which means that you should be able to fully utilize that F/2 aperture 22mm lens even in full sunlight. The X100T also features magnesium alloy top and bottom plates, giving the body that extra bit of durability in rough situations.
Overall, the new Fuji X100T is a great improvement over the previous model, the X100s. If you are interested in getting in a preorder, you can find the black version here and the silver version here. Both are available now on B&H for $1299.
