Fujifilm has announced a new entry-level mirrorless camera that has a similar design to the X-T20, but will be selling for 600 dollars — 300 bucks less than the X-T20. The new X-T100 shoots 1080p at up to 60fps, but only supports up to 15fps in 4K.
Fujifilm accidentally leaked some specs last week
After Fujifilm’s accidental leak last week, we know that the camera sports a 24.2-megapixel CMOS APS-C, but it doesn’t use Fujifilm’s X-Trans color array. The camera does works with Fujifilm’s X mount Fujinon lenses. You can achieve 6 fps shooting up to 26 frames, which is double of the X-A5. It also has a 2.36-million dot resolution OLED EVF.
Now, the camera does offer 1080p video at 60 fps, but it only offers 4K at 15 fps. So, those looking to film 4K video will probably skip on the X-T100, since 4K at 15 fps is going to turn out super choppy. You can see an example of what that might look like below:
It’s design is similar to the X-T20
There’s a lot of similarities between the X-T100 and the X-T20, with their rear controls being almost exactly the same. There’s still four dials for tactile control and both offer a compact body. but the X-T100 doesn’t have a front dial.
Additionally, the new camera’s battery lasts up to 430 shots, but it lacks a grip.
Pricing and Availability
The X-T100 is expected to ship in June for 600 dollars for the body only. If you want to tack on the Fujinon XC15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens, the kit will cost you 700 dollars.
