In additional X100T was introduced by Fujifilm in September 2014. It belongs to the enthusiast Compacts category.

Fujifilm is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Fujifilm.

Sensor Properties

Also X100T has a APS-C CMOS X-TRANS II sensor with size of 24 x 16 mm² (0.93" x 0.61").

The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.

The X100T's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. The resolution is somewhat below average but will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 size.

The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The Fujifilm allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.

Auto Focus Properties

The X100T's auto focus processor uses 49 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. with low contrast subjects).

Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

Unfortunately, the X100T's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.
