Fujifilm X100V Announced – Internal 4K/30p Video with Support for 10-bit, 4:2:2 via HDMI

At the X Summit 2020 held in London, Fujifilm has announced the fifth iteration of their popular entry-level X100 mirrorless camera with some noteworthy improvements regarding image quality, body design, and video capabilities. Interestingly enough, the long-awaited and highly-rumored Fujifilm X100V is capable of shooting DCI/UHD 4K/30p at 200Mbps as well as 1080/120p video internally, with support for 10-bit, 4:2:2 color via the HDMI.

Additionally, the newcomer comes equipped with a brand new 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor alongside a much sharper new 23mm f/2.0 lens and seen for the first time on the X100 model a 2-way tilting rear LCD screen.

All in all, the X100V retains the good old rangefinder-inspired body design with a fixed lens that has been so popular among creative professionals using the previous Fuji X100 models. The onboard Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, on the other hand, has been updated with a higher resolution 3.69m-dot OLED EVF for improved viewing that features a new Electronic Rangefinder function.

The latter mimics the functionality of a mechanical rangefinder and simultaneously overlays information from the electronic viewfinder on top of the optical viewfinder for comparative manual focus control. Complementing the finder is a 3.0″ 1.62m-dot LCD touchscreen, which features a two-way tilting design to support working from both high and low angles.

Furthermore, the new camera gets some enticing ergonomic enhancements to the grip, ISO dial, built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities as well as weather resistance that is only available when you purchase and attach the (optional) AR-X100 adapter ring and the PRF-49 protection filter.

Other noteworthy features on the X100V include continuous shooting up to 11 fps with the mechanical shutter, a hybrid autofocus system that combines 425 phase-detection points, a wide native sensitivity range of ISO 160-12800 as well as 10 Film Simulation Modes.
