Continuing their very busy year, Fujifilm recently released the X-T100 X Series interchangeable lens camera. The X-T100 features stylish SLR-like body design, a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, a built-in 2.36M-dot electronic viewfinder, 3-inch tilting touchscreen, hybrid autofocus and 4K UHD video recording for just under $600.

During my hands-on time with the X-T100, the camera's image quality impressed me a lot. The camera produces very nice JPEG images straight from the camera, but also delivers flexible RAW files which offer a good amount of detail throughout much of its native ISO range.

Image quality is certainly the X-T100's greatest strength. What about its weaknesses? Autofocus performance is underwhelming, and the camera feels quite sluggish in real-world use. The user interface could use refinement, and the touted 4K UHD video recording is capped at only 15 frames per second, which borders on unusable. To learn more about what the Fujifilm X-T100 does well and where it struggles, head on over to my full Fujifilm X-T100 Field Test.
