Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake from from the Camera Store in Canada took the new Fujifilm x100T large sensor compact camera for a test drive and got back with some impressions.
In mid September this year, Fujifilm announced a new member of the X family and an update to the X100S. This third incarnation of the company’s large sensor compact with a fixed lens brings mostly refinements compared to the older X100S and the main components of the camera (i.e. sensor, processor, AF system) remained the same. One of the biggest change is the interesting new viewfinder with a micro pop-up LCD which gives a picture in picture mode although Niccolls did not find it to be much more than a novelty. The higher res main screen however is a nice improvements although it is not a touch screen and does not articulate.
