Furthering their hybrid ethics with regard to camera design, the black X100T Digital Camera from Fujifilmcontinues their position of pairing contemporary aspects of imaging technology with well-respected themes from iconic cameras. Utilizing their proprietary sensor design, this rangefinder- styled camera features an APS-C-sized 16.3MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor to realize the utmost in image clarity and sharpness due to the randomized pixel array that eschews the conventional optical low-pass filter. Complementing the imaging assets, refined handling and viewing technologies have also been utilized, including an Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder that pairs both optical and electronic viewing methods along with an electronic rangefinder for enhanced manual focusing and monitoring capabilities. Cementing this camera within the realm of versatile and efficient, it is also fitted with a fixed 35mm-equivalent f/2 lens to benefit working in everyday shooting situations. The X100T sees the increased dependency on classic themes to better inform contemporary technologies, and combines both schools of thought into a practical and capable image-making device. Enhancing the capabilities of the X-Trans sensor design, an EXR Processor II is also utilized to deliver notable low-light sensitivity with maximum extended ISO 51200 and fast performance throughout the camera, including a continuous shooting rate of 6 fps, Intelligent Hybrid AF, full HD 1080p video recording, and fast start-up, shutter lag, and shooting interval times. A redesigned shutter mechanism, which is now entirely electronic, also delivers quickened shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sec. for capturing the fastest of movement or working in bright conditions with wide apertures. Conversely, the Fujinon lens also incorporates a 3-stop neutral density filter into its design to enable the use of slower shutter speeds and wider apertures for greater control over focus and movement. For further adjusting the appearance of imagery, Fujifilm has tapped into its history of producing film, and offers a range of Film Simulation modes, including the Classic Chrome mode, to mimic the specific qualities and colors of different film emulsions. Benefitting the imaging capabilities with respect to handling, the body's design features magnesium alloy top and bottom plates as well as a dial-based design theme to offer both durability and intuitiveness during shooting. A rear 3.0inch 1.04m-dot LCD monitor avails a large means for live view shooting or image playback and a dedicated command dial and four-way controller give way to efficient settings adjustment. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables the use of linked mobile devices to both transfer imagery to and remotely control the camera from, via the Fujifilm Camera Remote app. 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor A large 16.3MP APS-C CMOS image sensor is integrated into the X100T to provide high image quality and detail. Using Fujifilm's unique X-Trans pixel array, the sensor is designed with a randomized pixel pattern to eliminate the need of an optical low-pass filter for reducing moiré and aliasing. By removing this filter from the design, higher image sharpness is possible. Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) factors are also taken into account using the EXR Processor II, which helps to automatically compensate for aberrations and diffraction blur in order to produce images with the utmost inherent sharpness. The image sensor also utilizes backside illumination technology to help with the integration of phase-detection pixels into the sensor for improved autofocus performance without affecting image quality. The X-Trans sensor also pairs well with the EXR Processor II to provide highly effective noise reduction and a clean signal-to-noise ratio. This enables smoother-looking imagery that becomes especially apparent when photographing in low-light situations with an expandable sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200. EXR Processor
