The versatile Fujifilm X100V – Silver blends impressive image quality, elegant design with redesigned optics and enhanced autofocus to suit multiple photography needs. Utilizing a proven and well-regarded APS-C-format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, the X100V is capable of high-resolution recording along with support for DCI/UHD 4K video, sensitivity from ISO 160-12800, and continuous shooting up to 11 fps with the mechanical shutter.
The BSI design of the sensor affords reduced noise and greater overall clarity, and is paired with the X-Processor 4 to achieve fast performance and improved responsiveness. The sensor’s design also enables a hybrid autofocus system that combines 425 phase-detection points with a contrast-detection system for quick and accurate AF performance.
An updated Fujinon 23mm f/2 lens features a revised optical design that now includes two aspherical elements for improved sharpness and clarity through the reduction of spherical aberrations and distortion. Through the use of the optional AR-X100 Adapter ring and the PRF49 Protection Filter on the lens the camera can be made weather resistant. The lens is also compatible with the optional WCL and TCL attachment lenses to expand or reduce the effect field of view.
Beyond imaging, the X100V retains the tried-and-true rangefinder-inspired body design that has made this series of cameras so special. The popular Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder has been updated with a higher resolution 3.69m-dot OLED EVF for clearer viewing. This can still be flicked away to reveal a clear 0.52x-magnification optical finder to suit the purists’ way of photographing. Complementing the finder is a 3.0″ 1.62m-dot LCD touchscreen, which features a two-way tilting design to support working from both high and low angles. Additionally, built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi also enable wireless transferring of images to a mobile device as well as remote camera control from a smartphone or tablet.

State of the art image quality with 26.1 Megapixels X-Trans CMOS Sensor 4, Redesigned Optics and Enhanced Autofocus
At the heart of X100V is the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 combination. This exceptional 26.1MP sensor uses a back-illuminated design to maximize quality and dynamic range, while its unique colour filter array controls moiré and false colour without the need for an optical low pass filter. Such outstanding imaging capability is complemented by the quad-core X-Processor 4. This powerful CPU not only ensures images are quickly and smoothly processed, but thanks to a new algorithm, boosts AF performance with precision face and eye detection right down to -5EV.
Greater optical resolution for sharper images
X100V features a new 23mm F2.0 lens to ensure that every detail from its X-Trans CMOS 4 Sensor is resolved beautifully. The lens has been enhanced for better resolution, lower distortion and improved close focus performance. However, it still maintains the same overall size and compatibility with legacy WCL/TCL lens attachments.
Great low-light performance
The quad-core X-Processor 4 is the X100V’s powerful CPU that ensures images are quickly and smoothly processed. It also assists in boosting AF performance through a newly developed focusing algorithm. This allows the X100V to operate as low as -5EV, which allows for focus to be achieved easily and quickly in low-light conditions, so images can be made during any moment.
Enhanced face and eye detection autofocus
Phase detection autofocus pixels are placed across the image sensor, and combined with X-Processor 4 and a new algorithm, to provide enhanced tracking functionality and precision face and eye detection. This dramatically improves AF performance on people moving within the frame and those that are facing sideways.
The Focus Limiter Function can be used to set the lens to a specific range of distances to allow for faster AF performance. This is particularly useful when the approximate distance to the subject is consistent and high-performance AF is needed.
Improved Hybrid Viewfinder and Two-Way Touchscreen
X100V has a vastly improved hybrid viewfinder which enables image-makers to quickly and easily choose between the 0.52x magnification optical viewfinder (OVF) or the 3.69M dot OLED electronic viewfinder. Offering 95% frame coverage, the OVF provides parallax-correcting frame lines to give an uninterrupted view of the world as it is, while the camera’s EVF delivers a real-time representation of the image as it is being made.
Images can be made easily even in bright conditions thanks to the extremely bright 1500cd/㎡ high-luminance panel. Highlight and shadow details are more visible thanks to the EVFs higher resolution display, ensuring that images are made exactly as they are seen. The Electronic Range Finder (ERF) Function, blends the OVF and EVF are together to provide a unique experience. You can see an electronic preview of the scene in the bottom right corner, while still framing the image using the OVF.
The two-way tilting LCD touchscreen hides in the back of the camera and adds another first for the X100 series as it provides intuitive touch controls, unlocking even more possibilities for image-makers to see, frame, and create.
High-resolution video recording
X100V offers the ability to record 4K video up to 30 frames per second or capture 120 frames per second at 1080p to create super slow motion effects. Filmmakers needing extreme colour fidelity can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 colour externally via the HDMI port and leverage Fujifilm’s advanced colour reproduction technology, to apply Film Simulations, like Eterna, to their video footage. Additionally, image makers can also incorporate numerous shooting functions, such as “Monochromatic Color” to extend their creative visions directly to the footage being recorded.
Combining X100 Series Elegant Design and Controls with optional weather resistance.
The X100V’s timeless body has top and bottom plates milled from single pieces of aluminium, which results in a refined and classic camera body with clean, attractive edges. Finished with a beautiful satin coating, the X100V is a perfect combination of design and engineering.
Classic and intuitive controls
The analog inspired controls and use of dials for exposure compensation and shutter speed provide a purely tactile experience and contribute considerably to making the image making process an immersive and enjoyable experience.
- The top plate incorporates a series of locking dials and levers for fast, intuitive control over exposure settings, including a shutter speed dial that offers direct shutter speed adjustment. An ISO dial is also incorporated into the shutter speed dial, for confirming the sensitivity setting without having to turn the camera on.
- Front and rear command dials integrate a push function for easier use and settings selection.
- Rear joystick is available for intuitive selecting and switching of AF points as well as menu navigation and image playback.
Extra protection from the elements
For peace of mind and allowing you to keep shooting when conditions become challenging you can now make an X100 series camera more weather resistant. The X100V becomes weather-resistant when the optional AR-X100 adapter ring and the PRF-49 protection filter are used in conjunction with its new lens.
A Legacy in Colour Science
Fujifilm’s 85 years heritage in colour science has been poured into its collection of 17 digital Film Simulations. This cutting-edge technology allows photographers to achieve stunning results straight out of camera.
Apply the look from classic films, such as PROVIA, Velvia, Astia, ACROS and Eterna, which are loved around the world, or use the new Classic Negative to rekindle a new sense of creativity.
Color Chrome Effect / Color Chrome Blue
Color Chrome Effect adds additional contrast and saturation to colours in an image, while Color Chrome Blue applies the same effects, but to just the colour blue.
Natural film grain can be added to any image as an easy way of creating a “film-look” in -camera. This can be combined with the diverse range of Film Simulations to add texture individuality to any image.
Layer up to 9 images in Additive, Average, Comparative Bright or Comparative Dark modes to combine multiple perspectives or different points in time. Various settings, including Film Simulations, can be applied to each exposure to produce a unique creative expression completely in-camera.
