Fujifilm X-T100

24MP APS-C CMOS sensor | Hybrid AF system | Fully articulating LCD

What we like:

  • Excellent JPEG quality
  • High-res viewfinder
  • Long battery life

What we don't:

  • Poor continuous AF
  • Sluggish user interface
  • 4K/15p video not a serious feature
The X-T100 is Fujifilm's entry-level DSLR-shaped mirrorless model which is built around a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor and 91-point hybrid AF system.
The camera's handling is as good as its looks, with a user-customizable dial and a well-judged level of direct control. Some buttons on the back of the camera are prone to being accidentally pressed, though they can be locked as a workaround. A more pronounced screw-on grip is included in the box and there's also touchscreen that flips up, down or out to the front.
Slow autofocus and a slight delay to its touchscreen and menus leave it lagging behind its peers
Speed and performance is the camera's weak point. Single autofocus is reasonably snappy but its continuous AF performance is poor by contemporary standards. A distinct lag to the touchscreen, noticeable delay in using the menus and comparatively slow write speeds undermine the camera's all-round appeal.
The X-T100's image quality is excellent, offering a choice of attractive JPEG color modes as well as very good Raw performance. Color and detail are well maintained even in low light shooting and the Raw files offer plenty of processing flexibility.
Video on this Fujifilm is disappointing by modern standards. Although it claims to shoot 4K video, the footage maxes out at 15 frames per second, giving a stuttering sense of motion. The camera also shows significant rolling shutter distortion. 1080p capture is similarly underwhelming.
The X-T100 is in many respects a very good (and budget-friendly) camera, with its styling every bit as attractive as the images it can produce. However, slow autofocus and a slight delay to its touchscreen and menus leave it lagging behind its peers as an all-rounder or family camera.
