The Fujfilm X100T is a fixed lens camera paired with a sensor as big as those found in entry-level DSLRS--it's unusual, to say the least, but the camera line has been a favorite among street photographers and enthusiasts. The X100T is a marginal update to the X100S that keeps the same imaging power, but adds a few more much needed usability features.
True to the camera line, the X100T keeps the huge APS-C sensor, rare for compact, fixed lens cameras. A bright f2 lens is placed in front again to keep that image quality that the X100 line is known for. The lens is fixed (i.e. without zoom), which sadly limits the flexibility of the camera, but keeps the image quality and portability that street photographers crave.
While the fixed lens may be somewhat limiting, the speed and capability of the X100T are anything but. With both a mechanical and electronic shutter, shutter speeds hit a whopping 1/32000--pair that with the f2 maximum aperture, and this camera has quite a range of capabilities when it comes to manual exposure. RAW mode is included as well. The X100T can take burst shots at 6 fps for up to 25 frames, or at 3 fps continuously until the memory card is full.
Most of the updates come in under usability. The viewfinder has been improved significantly, now as an advanced hybrid viewfinder with an electronic rangefinder. This new option reduces display lag time and includes automatic brightness controls. A Natural Live View mode allows shooters to choose to preview effects like film simulation or to just view the unprocessed shot.
The controls have also been enhanced. The control ring around the lens to adjust the aperture now adjusts in third steps. There's a top dial for shutter speed, and the exposure compensation control has been expanded to +3. Fujifilm has also added wi-fi to the X100T, including the remote function and live view available from a smartphone.
Even with all these changes, the X100T is ringing up at the same list price as it's predecessors, $1,299. The X100T is clearly designed for street photographers and other enthusiasts and a worthwhile investment for these shooters. Those who need a little more versatility should look instead at interchangeable lens cameras--if the Fujfilm X100T appeals to you, check out the Fujifilm X-T1 for a similar option with interchangeable lenses.
