Fujifilm’s 26MP X100V Is A Powerful Modern Camera In A Retro Package

Fujifilm’s compact camera systems are renowned for their intuitive nature, dependable build quality, and recognizable color profile. But we’d be lying if we said that a part of the company’s allure didn’t come from its historical relevance. Although the Japanese camera manufacturer burst onto the photographic scene all the way back in 1934, its focus on vintage styling hasn’t become any less apparent — and now, the fifth iteration of its retrospective X100 line, the X100V, has been announced.

Like its predecessors, the X100V boasts a slimline silhouette that harkens back to the compact camera systems of old. A discreet design terminology and powerful 26-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor provide photographers with a well-designed platform for various disciplines of photography, lending the X100V to that of street capture, thanks to its unassuming stature. At its heart, a quad-core X-Processor 4 CPU provides immaculate visual acuity and performance, finding solace behind the device’s weather-resistant adapter ring. However, the nostalgic silhouette isn’t adverse to modern upgrades; a hybrid viewfinder, 1.62-million-dot tiltable LCD touch-screen, and 4K video recording provide much-needed quality-of-life characteristics that many contemporary photographers yearn for. The X100V is available for pre-order on Adorama’s website for $1,400.
