Is the Fujifilm X-T100 a good camera?

by | Jun 12, 2019 | Photography, Things we love | 4 comments

My world is still spinning and I feel honoured and excited to be an official INSTAX SA Blogger! Working with a brand that has been apart of our lives for years is a dream come true and I can’t wait to share our journey with you. First up, our review of the Fujifilm X-T100.

* Please note all of the photos used in this post – except for the ones showing the X-T100 – were taken and posted as shot. NO EDITING or COLOUR CORRECTION of any sort was used.

Price and where to buy:

If you keep an eye out for specials and sales, you can pickup a Fujifilm X-T100 for just over R8 000.

I’m not going to pretend to be a expert. There are many X-T100 reviews by professional photographers on the internet. I’m keeping things easy to understand for fellow families and bloggers looking to buy a good entry-level camera.

What we love most about the Fujifilm X-T100:

  • Image and colour quality is amazing. Rich, vibrant, crystal clear images shot after shot with minimal effort. Even our 4 year old Lia took some killer selfies.

  • The camera is small and compact. Fitting into a handbag which makes it a perfect travel camera. (I also loved having a “real camera” handy to capture treasured moments like Eliana’s first netbal match.)

  • The tilt screen makes shooting easy! Flip it horizontally when taking selfies and recording video.

OR tilt it vertically for low or high above shots like flatlays, food styling and those cute sleepy baby memories.

  • Loaded with a variety of functions and special features that are easy to use. I enjoyed playing around with the filters found in the Advanced Settings. It’s a great way to get the creative juices flowing giving you a little more confidence to start exploring more.

  • The retro look is a big plus as well. There’s just something about it that makes my vintage loving heart happy.
What better way to showcase the X-T100 video mode than with a short recording…

* This was shot without any additional equipment. The camera has a microphone port.

What could be better?

Transferring images from the camera wasn’t as quick and seamless as expected. Establishing the WiFi connection took more than one try but as soon as the two were connected things were easy.  The touchscreen also seemed to have a slight delay. I took beautiful photos of our Easter travels and great content for our blog and social media, especially when photographing objects or subject with minimal movement. Rapid movements proved trickier, even while shooting in the motion setting.

That being said, none of these aspects changed my overall positive impression of the camera.

Is the Fujifilm X-T100 a good camera?

YES, especially as an entry-level camera for individuals starting out in the world of taking good photos. The colour and image quality achieved in each shot is what sold me.  I’ve taken some of our best photos with this little camera.

In fact… Fuji SA, after one month of using the X-T100 it has become apart of me. It is my long lost limb. Now every photo taken with other cameras feels inferior plus, they simply take up too much space. Please be amazing and return the X-T100 home, I just know she’s missing me too.
