Fuji X100T Reviewed In The Midst Of Hong Kong Protests

By Anthony Thurston on October 1st 2014

Fuji‘s new X100T could easily be mistaken for the X100S or even the original X100 in passing. The feature improvements are little, but significant adjustments were made that really improve the experience of using the camera. It’s how product development should be done, in my opinion.


These new features include a mini-popup LCD (in the optical viewfinder) that makes manual focusing a breeze, 1/3rd stop increments on the lens aperture ring, +3/-3 EV, and a new 3″ 1 Million dot LCD screen.

Kai and the team over at DigitalRev recently took the new Fuji X100T out for their hands on review. As always, they did a great job of both giving an overview of the camera’s new features and using their usual snark and humor to make it easily consumable. This time however, the setting of the review is pretty significant.

As you may, or may not know; Hong Kong has been the site of some major protests recently over China’s decision not to allow full democratic elections in 2017. This has lead to some major protesting right in the middle of Hong Kong, and the DigitalRev team took to the streets to frame their Fuji X100T review in the midst of these peaceful protests.

I am with Kai on this one, this new X100T is absolutely lust worthy. I just wish I could justify the price to my accountant wife, haha. On a side note, I just want to say “stay safe” to the DigitalRev team and everyone else in the midst of the Hong Kong protests.

    I’m still using the original X100, which works perfectly well and can be found for well under $1,000 now. I passed on the X100s because I didn’t see anything substantial worthy of an upgrade. However the X100t does have some significant improvements, like the 1/3rd stop increments and the +3/-3 EV. Add to that the auto focus is improved over the original X100. I can see jumping from the original X100 to the X100t.

    The one thing I would have liked to see in his review is how this camera handled those protests at night. The X100 and the XE1 are not very effective for fast movements at night.
