The Spotlight Awards 2020 Grand Prize Winner will be the proud owner of the one and only Fujifilm X100V – we go through its features
This year, our Spotlight Awards is being sponsored by Fujifilm and among the many prizes, the gran prize winner will get the graceful Fujifilm X100V. Read on to find out more about the fantastic features of this camera.
The X100V’s timeless body has top and bottom plates milled from single pieces of aluminum, 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 that is sure to make photographers of any level joyful as they make their images.
A new lens to get the most out of any image
X100V features a new 23mmF2.0 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, which gives image-makers additional angle of views equivalent to 35mm and 50mm on 35mm Format.
Protected from the elements
Weather resistance appears for the first time in the X100 Series when the optional AR-X100 adapter ring and the PRF-49 protection filter are used in conjunction with the X100V’s brand new lens. Continue making images in challenging weather conditions and have peace of mind when nature takes an unexpected turn.
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.
