The fifth generation of Fujifilm X100-series constitutes a major upgrade compared to previous models. For example, the Fujifilm X100V screen is twistable, which comes in handy when one needs to take shots from above or underneath the object of interest.
The X100-series is popular among ordinary street photographers due to its compact design and image formats. Hence, there is a large potential customer base out there for this camera. Let’s have a closer look at what the Fujifilm X100V camera can offer.
The new X-Processor 4 allows for three times higher processing speeds compared to previous versions. This enables the 2.16 million pixels phase-detected autofocus (AF) to quickly focus at great precision. It’s possible to limit the range of the autofocus by selecting two predetermined distances for the camera to operate within.
