Fuji X100F First Shots

Fuji's 4th-gen, fixed-lens streetshooter gets the lab treatment

by | Posted

First unveiled back in January of this year, the Fuji X100F, alongside the X-T20, joins the updated X-T2 and X-Pro2 as the latest Fuji X-series cameras to get the resolution bump up to 24.3-megapixels and some new processing hardware by way of the X Processor Pro. Upgrading from a 16MP chip to a 24.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS III imaging sensor, the Fuji X100F offers a sizable resolution increase from the three X100 predecessors. Additionally, the X Processor Pro helps increase both burst rate and buffer capacity. Meanwhile, its ISO range remains largely unchanged compared to the earlier X100T, though the top native ISO is bumped up to 12,800 (compared to 6400); expandable ISO range is, however, the same: 100-51,200.

In between outings for its currently in-progress Field Test, the Fuji X100F spent time in our lab undergoing our standard battery of tests. We're now excited to share our classic First Shots set of lab sample images with you. As usual, this series offers a look at the camera's image quality across its full ISO range, both at default noise reduction and when set to as minimal NR processing as possible. As expected, we have both RAWs and straight-out-of-camera JPEGs available for download over on our Fuji X100F Samples Page.

Now, besides just examining images from the X100F, First Shots are also available in our Comparometer, which allows you to compare its standardized lab images against any other camera we've reviewed. To get you started, below are a few popular comparisons -- at base ISO and ISO 3200 -- against some primary competitors, as well as the X100F's lower-resolution predecessor, the X100T.
