This lat­est en­try into Fu­ji­film’s X Se­ries is not a rad­i­cal change but an im­prove­ment on an al­ready im­pres­sive de­sign.

Fans of the X Se­ries cam­eras like them for good rea­son. They are solid with a won­der­ful retro style and fea­tures aimed at those who want full con­trol of their photography.

The X100T has a 16.3megapixel sen­sor and a fixed 23mm f2-f16 lens. It can shoot six frames per sec­ond, it has an ISO range ex­pand­able up to 51,200 and a fixed 3-inch touch­screen.

Like pre­vi­ous mod­els, the set­tings for shut­ter speed and ex­po­sure con­trol are di­als on top and you ad­just your aper­ture with a ring around the lens. One dif­fer­ence is that the ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion extends to plus or mi­nus three stops. An­other sig­nif­i­cant change is ob­vi­ous when you look through the viewfinder.

There is noth­ing old-school about this viewfinder, with a tog­gle switch that puts a small dig­i­tal screen into the cor­ner with an en­larged area of the fo­cus zone.

If you’re some­one who would rather use man­ual fo­cus, this is a fea­ture to love.

Other im­prove­ments in­clude re­mote shoot­ing from a smart­phone us­ing wi-fi and film sim­u­la­tion de­signed to im­i­tate Clas­sic Chrome.

This is not a cam­era for those who want to point and shoot but for lovers of the photography process.
