The Fujifilm X100V is the latest of the X100 series and we've seen some big changes and modifications to the overall package. An upgraded lens, new sensor, a new button layout, a totally new look, and upgraded software tools, which all together really help this camera stand apart from the previous models. This is by far the most unique update to date, but is it worth it?
AF has improved tremendously over the last few years with Fujifilm cameras. Even the Fujifilm X-T3 with last year's firmware saw significant improvements. However, there is one little camera that still struggles, the X100V. This guide shows you a few cool tricks on how to get better autofocus out of the X100V.
Fujifilm has been a little under the spotlight lately for their autofocus. I personally never had a problem with it unless I was using the older lenses in low light until I got the X100V. This camera just does not like the way that I like to shoot and I get pretty poor autofocus performance. I've been messing around with all the different settings and modes and I finally have found something that's working.
One of the great features of the Fujifilm cameras is the ability to control and manipulate the film simulators to give you absolutely incredible classic looks that are ready to go straight out of the camera. This isn't something I've really gotten into too much over the years since I've always liked editing by hand and experimenting with different looks on the RAW files in post. But as I get busier and busier with work and kids and life, simplicity is the new trend in my life.
In my free time I've been experimenting with the different features and capabilities of the Fujifilm X100V. Since the X100V can now focus and maintain great detail very close with the leaf shutter that can sync with pretty much any flash at any shutter speed, it leaves the door open for some fun and easy experimentation.
