Fujifilm X-T100 is a pretty little alternative to a cheap dSLR

Fujifilm delivers another stylish mirrorless camera for the phone-camera-doesn't-cut-it-anymore set.

Lori Grunin Senior Editor / Advice
I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Fujifilm has always done classy retro, and the new Champagne Gold and Dark Silver continue that tradition.


Just a half-step up from its 2-year-old entry-level X-A5 mirrorless, Fujifilm recasts most of the components of that model into a slightly more advanced package. But it's still intended it for the entry-level enthusiast who wants something smaller and more flexible than a dSLR with no compromise on quality. 

The X-T100 adds an OLED electronic viewfinder and flip-out touchscreen display (which also tilts), and the design mimics that of Fuji's high-end models such as the X-T2. That puts it right in competition with models like the Olympus OM-D E-M10 III and more expensive models from Sony .

See all prices

The camera is slated to ship in June at $600 for the body and $700 for the kit with the Fujinon XC15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ (power zoom) lens. We don't have UK or Australian pricing or availability, but those prices directly convert to about £450 and AU$800 for the body and £525 and AU$930 for the kit.


The back display swings out as well as tilting up or down.


I have two words for you: no grip. But you're welcome to pay extra for one!


The X-T100 looks like a pretty typical example of the class. It doesn't use Fujifilm's X-Trans CMOS, which makes sense in a camera like this; it uses a traditional CMOS sensor. And while its battery life is still shorter than a comparable dSLR, its 430-shot rating is pretty good for a mirrorless. Aside from the lack of a grip -- a now-standard practice to cut costs -- the only notable drawback is its 4K recording. You're limited to 15 frames per second.
