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 28mm 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.
Classic and intuitive controls
The analog inspired controls of the X100 Series are one of its most defining characteristics. The 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.
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.
At the heart of X100V is the state-of-the-art 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 color filter array controls moiré and false color 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.
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
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.
Set the distance for faster AF speed
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.
