Premium compact digital camera “FUJIFILM X100V”

The FUJIFILM X100V is a premium compact digital camera that combines the back-illuminated 26.1MP “X-Trans CMOS4” sensor and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4” with Fujifilm’s proprietary color-reproduction technology to enable capturing high-quality stills and videos in “memory colors,” vivid colors exactly as people remember.

The camera features the Advanced Hybrid Viewfinder, allowing users to instantaneously switch between the optical viewfinder (OVF) and electronic viewfinder (EVF) in pursuit for the traditional photography style of “shooting through the viewfinder.” The use of the tilting rear LCD monitor and dials on the top plate enables intuitive operability and gives the camera body the sophisticated design that exudes functional beauty.
