Fujifilm X100V leaked photos

I'm sure it's a great camera, but they really need to get rid of the built-in flash! I'm just going to hope that the black version looks better.

Flash is good to have, -3, high ISO gives no deep shadows, but well lighten faces.
I hope one day they will make its lens with manual focus scale.

YES! New lens, but no manual focusing tab like the Leica Q. Why?!

A wonderful all-purpose camera. Flash, great viewfinder, EVF if needed, leaf shutter. The lens update was about time in the fifth iteration of the camera.

Probably no hard stops at the ends of the focus ring's travel. Tabs aren't so much use when the focus ring position isn't tied to the lens's focus distance.

*sigh* I wish they had changed it after all these years.

New lens, new sensor, tilt screen, and it’ll be faster In every way. For those that want a Q type lens, are you willing to pay a lot more for it? Probably not right...

Q focus scale is not good example. Here is no five/four meters mark. Infinity, next to it two meters, next to it one and then long trow after one meter.


https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/leica-q-typ116/3

OLY has made it right so far.


https://www.photographyblog.com/revi...mm_f_18_review

Fuji MF focus scale is anti-Leica.

The Leica has a focusing tab, but the scale isn't good.

The Olympus doesn't have a focusing tab, but the scale is good.

Will someone get it right, please?

Well, both Fuji and Oly have flat focus ring. Taab will do it or just cable tie.

Maybe someone can tap a screw hole in the Oly's barrel and install a focusing stick.

I'm no fan of tilt screens but I'm sure this will be another winner for Fuji. Thank God the tilt screen actually tilts instead of flipping. I really dislike that flippin' screen on the new XPro.

It looks like it's grown a tad. That's okay with me but I wouldn't want it to get much bigger.

As for the looks...it is getting uglier by the model. The last really pretty X100 was the "S" in my opinion. I really love the looks of that and the original model. Speed be damned--give me a pretty camera!

I like the tilt screen ... it’s a WLF for street photos. And useful for close to ground shots.

I just wish it was 28mm equiv.

The specs make this look like my next Fuji camera. I've had the X100 for years and I still use it, but lament the lens which is soft close up at f2 and a few other quirks. A better lens, tilting touchscreen for waist level shooting and upgraded sensor would be great. I'm all for tilting touchscreens, they can be so useful.

I'm just curious because I have the opposite opinion - I love the scale on the Leica but hate the one on the Olympus (and Fuji manual clutch lenses).

Do you often shoot super close to your subject?

I'm a street shooter, so am most often focused on people 2 or 3 meters away. I often go up or down to 1 meter or 5 meters, depending on if people are closer or farther away.

The Leica scale is perfect for me because when the tab is

Straight down = close to subject = 1.2-1.5 meters
Slightly to the right = medium to subject = 2-3 meters
To the right (45 degrees) = far from subject = infinity

I've always wondered why Olympus and Fuji and everyone else designs their scale differently. I have always assumed it's because many/most people like to shoot up close (e.g., closer than 1 meter), while for me, that's not so useful.

For me, for example, the 1 meter or 0.7 meter minimum focus distance of rangefinder lenses is rarely an issue. But I imagine for many that really doesn't work for them.

Best,

-Jason

The Leica Q focusing scale is a little odd because it skips over the usual 2-3-5-10 meter marks. With just the 2-infinity marks, it's really compressed.

On my Canon 28mm f/2.8 LTM, a full-length shot of an average height person in landscape orientation is about 10 feet away, and my finger is at a "standard" 6 o'clock position. It's a nice, comfortable position. Bringing it in to 5 o'clock focuses at 6 feet, which is a 3/4 length shot. Dead easy!

It'd take some practice to get used to 6 o'clock being a half-length shot instead of a full-length shot, but anything's possible.

Have the F and don't see any reason to upgrade at this time. It looks like the improvements are minimal.

I think I agree about the built in flash - it is undoubtedly just about worthless, but worst of all looks a bit "naff" as our Brit friends say..............I think I would put some tape over it and pretend I am hiding a Leica red dot.

The thinner flash is an improvement, but not much. \_(ツ)_/

Agreed. The first few iterations were really quite attractive but since the x100f they seem to be getting uglier with every iteration. And in some ways more complicated.

I actually hope they never get rid of the flash. It is amazingly good for flash fill in sunlight and I keep mine pretty much on set at -2/3's stop. Guess there is always black tape for those who don't like it.

And it also does not cost $5000 like the Q2.

That is true - plus I really still like this viewfinder and the fact it has a flash. It is kind of a simple almost do-it-all thing.
The Q to compare might be used Q1.

The real improvement of the V model would be an OVF way more accurate than those of its predecessors.

Framing in all consciousness then always having to crop to get what was in the OVF frame while firing the shutter is what kept me away from the X100 series since their beginning. We'll see how things have changed (or not) on this one...

Man, tough crowd. I’m a Fuji fanboy... but in this time of me-too style mirrorless cameras, I am just glad they exist. This camera looks fine to me... especially the black one.

The full set of product images is up! Think I'll pre-order a black one.

Okay, there's finally an X100 with a rear layout that I like. I always felt like the previous models had too many buttons on the back for a camera that has all the exposure parameters on physical dials. This one looks super clean!

People have been asking for this since the X100 came out.

I definitely like this trend of fewer buttons on the back.

$1399 in the US, and weather resistant with the $100 filter /adapter. Looks like a decent update.

Spoiler alert - the original X100 was weather resistant with its filter adapter. Don't ask me how I learned that....

Weather sealed? Will re-watch X100 series street photography youtube videos more closely.

Here is one with X100V https://youtu.be/7d5jul1iydw

Okay it's better looking than the leaked photos suggested. Might be the best looking x100 yet.

Now that the specs are out, I'm totally on board with this camera. I really like the newly redesigned top plate, with its sharp edges and fine details. It's basically a X-Pro 3 with a better 23/2 lens, it would solve pretty much every issue I have with the original X100 I have on the desk right now. Add the tilting screen, decent video mode including Eterna profile, this is right up my alley. Too bad it doesn't have IBIS, that would make it just about perfect.

The DPReview initial review was shot on the X100V. Very impressive performance.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRzsKMUXJNk


The weathersealing is so cool. I'm remembering when I was caught in a multiple hour downpour in Japan, and as a result, have no photos from that part of the day until we got inside. Sure, a Sony RX0 would have done it, but the X100V would produce different images.

Sample photos at f/2 are looking sharp, though I'm seeing some "bulls-eye" OOF highlights in the bokeh of some photos.

Sounds like a great upgrade with the weather sealing, AF range limiter, touchscreen AF, tilting LCD, and pop-up ISO ring.

The new satin coating on aluminum plates sounds nice, too. Maybe I'll get silver instead of black.

Nice cam..
Often thought of getting one..
Basically a point and shoot..
But kinda expensive for that..
Video looks good..
Stills..well..if you like that lens rendition..as you are stuck w/it..
And then there is..when dust gets on the sensor..you have to send it in for a cla..and that aint cheep..

The video reviews are coming thick and fast after the announcement. Man, I don't mean to be superficial, but this camera looks HOT.
