About this item
- Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
- Great Photography Every Day, Everywhere: X100V features a newly designed, incorporated 23mmF2 lens, ensuring you preserve those special moments at maximum resolution with minimal distortion. It also offers an improved close focusing performance compared to previous X100 models, and, for the first time in the X100 line, you can keep making images even in the toughest conditions when you attach the optional adapter ring with the weather-sealing protection lens (sold separately). This outstanding lens retains the same slim line design as other X100 models, so it retains compatibility with existing WCL and TCL lens attachments.
- Designed for Quality and Speed: From fleeting holiday moments and family celebrations to hard-hitting visual stories and ever-changing city streets, X100V has been designed to always deliver exceptional image and video quality. Creating a tool this capable takes powerful technology; that’s why Fujifilm’s state-of-the-art X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 combination sits at this camera’s core. Pairing this exceptional, 26.1MP, back-side illuminated sensor and powerful quad-core CPU results in incredible quality, wide dynamic range, lightning-fast processing and precision AF performance, right down to -5EV.
- Two ways to See an Image: To truly convey the magic of a scene, you need to be immersed in the moment and X100V’s advanced hybrid viewfinder gives you everything you need to do exactly that. At the flick of a switch, you can change between the X100V’s 0.52x magnification optical viewfinder (OVF), which uses parallax-correcting frame lines to let you see outside the shot, and its 3.69M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF), which gives you a real-time preview of your exposure. You can even get the best of both worlds by using the electric rangefinder function (ERF) to activate a mini EVF display within the OVF window.
- Frame the Perfect Image: X100V has been specifically tailored for photographers who are never without a camera by their side and always ready to frame a moment. The two-way, tilting LCD touchscreen is a perfect example of Fujifilm’s tailored design. This new technology within the X100V offers quick, intuitive controls and makes struggling to frame images from difficult angles a thing of the past. Furthermore, when folded flat it fits seamlessly into the camera’s slim line body, and in doing so, this sophisticated LCD touchscreen finds the perfect balance between functionality and portability.
- Movies on the Move: The X100V allows you to explore a whole new world of image making with the ability to create stunning 4K video at 30 frames per second. Additionally, super slow-motion footage can be recorded using the camera’s Full HD/120p setting, so you can relive details that would otherwise be missed by the naked eye. This professional-level quality is backed up by Fujifilm’s outstanding color reproduction technology and unique selection of in-camera film simulation modes, while those who need more fidelity can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 color via the HDMI port.

A Legacy in Color Science
Fujifilm’s heritage in color science has given it legendary status among image-makers across the world. During its 85 years in the industry, Fujifilm has been responsible for some of the most iconic photographic films in history and this knowledge has been poured into its collection of 17 digital Film Simulations. This cutting-edge technology allows photographers to achieve stunning results.
See the world differently
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.
The EVF uses an extremely bright 1500cd/㎡ high-luminance panel, so images can be made easily even in bright conditions. 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.
A blending of form and function
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 color fidelity can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 color externally via the HDMI port and leverage Fujifilm’s advanced color 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.

Prior to this camera I have owned multiple Canon, Nikon, and Sony, APS-C cameras, and also rented a full-frame Nikon. I could go on for a while about what I think about each brand's stengths and weaknesses when it comes to IQ, but suffice it to say that I think they are all good in some ways and not good in others. This is my first Fuji and simply put, I am more happy with the results, more of the time, than I have ever been with any other camera. Image Quality, to me, really boils down to realistic reproduction, and I think Fuji nails it. So often before, when I looked at a photo I took, it was just a little off to me and didn't really "catch" whatever it was that I was taking a picture of. Of course, a lot of that must have been user error, but with this camera, when I look at the pictures, I think "yes, that is what I was taking a picture of!"
I dabble in all kinds of photography, but the majority of the time I'm taking pictures, it's when I'm out and about or on a hike so this camera would seem like a natural choice. However, I most enjoy shooting at high-normal, and telephoto, focal lengths - I rarely shoot below 45mm equivalent - so I thought it would be out of the question. But I was lucky to stumble onto two pieces of information about this camera that made all the difference. The first is that this camera has a smart-teleconverter function, which zooms in to 50mm and 70mm equivalents. Of course, the results aren't quite as good as using an actual 50 or 70mm lens, but with 26 megapixels, they're plenty good for me. The only negative I will say here is that while using the 70mm function, the image is a little blurry in the EVF so it is harder to be certain of focus, but it's not too bad. The other thing I learned about this camera which made me pull the trigger is that Fuji sells an actual converter to 50mm for $350! With zero reduction in image quality or f-stop. It obviously makes it a bit bulkier, but it is still plenty portable for me. All of that is to say, that even for someone like me who usually carried a telephoto zoom, normal zoom, and a 50mm prime, this camera covers enough of the range to be happy with. And the trade-off in weight and space saved makes up for the small sacrifice made on the focal length side, many times over. Just after buying this camera I took a three-nighter to Bryce Canyon and I absolutely fell in love. I can't describe how giddy I was hopping around the trails with this camera securely slung cross-body. I passed so many people with huge cameras hanging around their necks, either banging into them with every step or they had to hold them the entire time. I used to be one of those people and the difference is massive. Of course, the best part was when I looked at my pictures each night on my laptop and realized the pictures were coming out, for the first time in my life, as good as I had hoped them to be! If I had been using a Sony or Nikon full-frame, I would have gotten a little more dynamic range out of the shots (and don't get me wrong I would have liked that) but having to carry all that extra weight and gear would not have been worth it.
I think the thing that has always attracted me most to Fuji is the dedicated dials and now that I have had them, I don't think I can go back. For some people, these dials might actually slow them down, because the front and rear dials that most cameras have, are usually dedicated to changing SS and aperture, and that is actually faster than the dials on Fuji cameras. But for me, against all logic, Fuji's implementation is just more intuitive, and therefore, faster. It also helps me because I know what the camera is set at, without having to look through the viewfinder or the screen. That way, I can separate composing my shot and exposing my shot which I find more effective, and also more satisfying.
- The best reviews I have seen for Fuji in general are by Phil Porto on YouTube. He doesn't get wrapped up in the nitty-gritty, technical details, but talks more about how it feels to use Fuji.
- I wish the "Q" menu was customizable
- I wish it had one or two more customizable buttons
- the OVF / EVF is so awesome! I love the feeling of getting my exposure set and then only using the OVF for composition. It just feels more connected to me than using a screen.
Now, one of the key problems people seem to have with this camera (and other Fuji cameras) is the use of the Fuji "Cam Remote" app which you need on your phone to transfer pictures to your phone wirelessly. I had some frustrations too, but it turns out the key problem is that the manual doesn't explain things very well, and the menus on the camera are confusing too. Here's what has worked for me and is very reliable (take note, this info is for the X100V; I have no other Fuji cameras and have not tested it on any others):
1) Turn on "Wireless Communication". This item is in the "Shooting Menu" (the one with the little camera icon) on page 3/3 of that menu. This seems to be the key point of confusion. Fuji should really put this item in the "Connection Settings" menu (which is under the "tool" icon) to be logically consistent. Anyway, turning this on (by simply clicking on it in the menus) causes the camera to create its own wi-fi network, called "Fuji... something or other".
2) Now, go into the settings on your iPhone or iPad (once again, I am in the Apple world; I do not know for sure if this works the same way under Android, but I assume so) and connect your iDevice to the new Fuji wi-fi network. Note: once you do this successfully, you are connected to the camera and NOT to the internet since the camera, of course, does not have an internet connection (unlike your phone, which probably does have such a connection).
3) Go back to the Fuji Cam Remote app and NOW open it up. You should now be able to click (in the app) on "Import images selected on app". That part of the app should now open up and show you thumbnails of the images on your phone. You can select images and move them to your phone. Once you reconect to your original wi-fi (with an internet connection; you can, of course, use your phone's cell internet connection, like 5G, if you have that) you can then upload images to Instagram or whatever else you want to do.
I'm putting this in the simplest way possible here in the hope that is most helpful. There are some minor complications you might run into; for instance, if I switch between my iPhone and my iPad then after step 2 I have to click the "ok" button on the camera to allow the phone, or iPad, to connect to the camera. This is explained pretty clearly on the screen of the phone during this process. Also, although the manual, and the menus, talk about "pairing" a device to the camera before doing all of this, I find that with my camera and phone I don't have to go through the pairing. What matters is turning on the Fuji wifi, connecting the iDevice to it, THEN opening the app.
I hope this helps. It seems a shame that so many reviews knock the camera because they are having this trouble with the app. I found this information in a Fuji users discussion board and for me, it makes the app totally reliable and usable. That's another lesson here: this is a popular camera and if you have questions or problems, it's very likely they have come up and been discussed in one of the internet chat groups devoted to Fuji stuff. So, start your Google and find your answers. ;-). Good luck with this great camera, everyone.
Nov. 2022 -- Cannot believe what the world has been through since I bought this camera 2.5 years ago! Just want to add, as of updating to iOS 16 in October 2022, getting the Fuji iPhone/iPad app to connect to my camera has gotten a little tricky. Presumably in updates over the next month or two (to iOS and/or to Fuji firmware) this will get sorted out. Also just a general point: I still think this is a great camera, but it does seem to me that the larger sensor size of a "full-frame" camera, like my old Canon 6D, does make a difference. My impression is that the 6D was better in very low light, and generally produced more amazing shots just by being a full-frame camera. But there's still a lot to love about this beautiful one-camera solution model, with flash, ND filter, lens, as I mentioned before...

It is amazing how compact and feature packed is this camera. It is a fun to use with all mechanical tactile and compactness that makes you bring it anywhere.
Having a fixed lens is also great as you do not spend a lot of money on lenses and carry them around. Instead you can concentrate on capturing the great moments of your life and your beloved ones.
You can always buy wide or telephoto converters. I have a wide converter that I occasionally use for landscape photography.
If you want to zoom you can digitally zoom and you will not be disappointed as image quality is great and new lens produces sharp and vivid images.
I owned Fujifilm X100F and I loved it although there were a couple of missing features such as weather sealing and fast autofocus.
I live in Montreal, Canada and weather can be harsh at times so having weather sealing is a great addition.
Besides, camera is improved in many aspects. Faster and better autofocus, tilting touch-enabled screen, higher quality body build, and longer battery life are some of the improvements.
In short, it is such a joyful and capable camera!
As with any new release, you’re subject to some growing pains, and unfortunately the X100V has had a few in terms of fit and finish. The unit I received has had issues with grinding in the manual focus ring. It seems like the main focus ring is slightly offset, and so will grind against the metal housing when you turn. The Auto-focus system is also generally much louder than the X100F, and really any of the current gen x-series cameras I’ve used. The cap as well, which normally fits on and slides off very smoothly is no where near as smooth as the X100F, and kind of pops off instead of sliding off. The camera does get quite hot in use over the battery, where you thumb holds the camera body.
Compared to the X100F this just hasn’t been as refined an experience - it feels rough around the edges, and at just over $2000 taxes in for a brand new release like this, I have to say I was pretty disappointed. Mind you all of the amazing things about image quality, usability and design that other reviewers talk about is indeed there, but this falls flat on a lot of these fit and finish elements. I expect that these issues will be ironed out over time, and from what I’ve read on forums fujifilm has been generally quite good about fixing these issues under warranty. In addition, Fujifilm is well known for supporting their cameras extensively through firmware support.
So overall, definitely a great camera but one I might wait a little bit to pick up so they can work out some of those kinks.
Image quality is fantastic and about as good as you can get out of a modern APS-C camera. I no longer need to shoot in Raw as I find the jpgs to be more than adequate. I enjoy the film simulations which are professional as opposed to other manufacturers simulations which are more "gimmicky" and "toyish". No complaints in the image department.
There are a few negatives though. Gone is the 4 way controller and you're forced to have to swipe the rear screen to replicate the missing controller. I'm not a fan of swiping as it's not as intuitive and there is some lag to the swipes. Also not a fan of the recessed buttons because there harder to feel when you're looking through the viewfinder. I like the buttons on the previous X100F model much better.
al momento de grabar vídeo, se escucha el motor de autoenfoque muchisiisisisimo osea casi igual que las voces de lo que grabas, eso no me gustó para nada 😭
Ni tampoco que no trae cargador..
Respecto a la batería, dura tal cual se marca en las especificaciones, unos 450 disparos, me parece que dura muy poco para tener esa batería tan grande pero en fin :(
Solo recuerda cargarla antes de días importantes (la tienes que cargar 5-6 horas en tu pc por USB)
No puedes enviar videos raw a tu cel mediante la app (sólo fotos)
Las fotos que produce estan hermosas
Viene con recipes para que puedas tomar fotos con "filtros" ahí mismo en la cámara
Puedes conectar a tu cel súper fácil
Puedes personalizar tooodo los botones, eso me encantó
La pantalla es tactil y se mueve un poco, muy útil, yo le compre unas micas para protegerla
Esta hermosa, recibirás muchos cumplidos 😂 lmao
Esta super práctica, la puedes llevar a todos lados y tomar momentos especiales! Justo para eso la compré, porque solo tengo las Canon de trabajo y están 0 cute para el día y día, viajes, lifestyle etc.
