Fuji Officially Unveils New X100T

By Anthony Thurston on September 10th 2014

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.

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.

    This is the camera I’d get if I have a need for a rangefinder . At that price, it’s gonna be a bit more need than usual.

    Daniel. I would love to switch entirely. I’m just nervous about low light focusing in receptions without the help of my canon 600 flashes. The flash capabilities of these Fuji’s seems to be lacking. Do you shoot weddings with your Fuji Kit ?

      I haven’t yet, but I plan to. I only typically shoot 2-3 weddings per year, and without the 70-200 equivalent being available yet, I wouldn’t feel comfortable using it. Once that and the 24-70 equivalent is available, I would definitely shoot a wedding with it.

      As far as low light focusing in general, the focus peaking assistance is really great and IMO really makes manual focus more of an option than it used to be on a digital camera.

    I love my x100s. i love it so much I switched from Canon to Fujifilm entirely. But, I am not sure this update will justify an upgrade.

    I think it’s a bit overpriced for where it sits in the market right now.

    The X100T has some interesting updates, but the built-in ND filter is not one of them, since it has been part of this camera line since the original x100. Zack Arias already made a pretty clear post about what the new fuji brings to the table.

      Thanks for sharing. I just pointed out the ND because it is a rather unique feature of the X100 line, not many cameras come with built in ND filters. Im sure Zack, a fuji sponsored shooter who had early access to the camera, has plenty of great insight and good things to say about the new camera. Not all of us are that lucky.
