We are not the first to editing, which tested the X100T – but I'm sure that only we took him on a car journey from Sopot, the Masuria, to the Romanian Constanza on the Black Sea.
Housing and ergonomics
Today, most producers have a portfolio of at least one example of a premium compact. Small equipment, to the layman does not differ from a regular camera, but still giving far greater opportunities. It is not difficult indeed to define the target group, because such facilities not everyone is interested. To say that this digital camera is "just" hardware allows for selection of manual exposure settings, it would be very unfair. If you care about the product to learn and do not know yet whether, when you are shooting, you have a plethora of options at a lower price threshold (BenQ G1). From the deliberate shooting permit, plus or minus, on the same, and your wallet will be a few thousand. X100T and his derivatives are, in my opinion, utensils for those who photographed earlier. I have not seen people starting in this direction, and choosing compact 5 thousand. respectively. I have seen that those who reach for any, as the camera accompanying systemic solutions. One that could – without a significant compromise on quality and ergonomics – allow the preservation of the existing creative possibilities. This is what allows third generation of compact Fujifilmu. Even the housing can tell us a lot. Maintaining the design under the great, which examines a retro design is utilitarian justified here. This is not a whim of designers who, without any basis said that they would do the "old" equipment. This elapsed ergonomics embellished with the luminaire, which will be able to appreciate the aesthetics fans. Located on top of the cabinet knobs and buttons allow access to most of the most necessary functions, such as changing the aperture, exposure time, her compensation, white balance, and the whole mass of the following modes. Fujifilm releases a wink to those who yearn for the days analog – światłosiły control is handled through the annulus visible at the lens. At first glance, not lacking anything, except perhaps sealing known from XT1. The upper and lower plate are made of magnesium alloy, so that we have a right to the premium segment reinforcement. At the front of the camera also shows correspondingly deep, comfortable grip, which was located next to the lever to change the display in the viewfinder hybrid. Next – flash, microphones, viewfinder himself and lens. On the upper wall we see our logo and inscription hot shoe, dial time switch with shutter button programmable function button and dial responsible for the exposure compensation. The rear panel X100T is another control buttons (Playback Mode, images, basketball, the Fn button, lock AEL / AFL button guarantee the access to the quick menu (which can be customized to suit your requirements) and the surrounding menu selector. It is impossible not noted proudly printed "MADE IN JAPAN", attesting to the quality of the submission of individual elements, as well as a large, 3-inch color monitor. The above, however, we see a button to select the drive and another knob which is responsible for changing the exposure. On the left side (looking from Front) led manufacturer slots hidden behind a flap Communication (microHDMI type D, microUSB and 2.5mm microphone), while on the right you will find a slider that modifies the work autofocusu (manual, continuous, single). immediately I noted that X100T supports the USB charging function. X100T housing measures 127 x 74 x 54.2 mm and weighing 440 grams – with the battery. The entire set is a little bit bigger than the Sony RX100 III and Panasonic Lumix LX100, but you can still categorize it as a pocket camera. As long as we have enough big pockets – and rather in the jacket, not the trousers.
An important element of the whole structure is improved, hybrid viewfinder, which combines the best qualities of electronic and optical endoscopes. For all the fuss is responsible visible on the front panel of a lever, allowing you to switch between modes, as well as select electronic rangefinder – ideal for manual sharpening and leveling the loss of productivity autofocusu after dark. Rangefinder can operate in either the Focus Peakingu, or Digital Split Image (modeled analog rangefinder). And how the case looks on the technical side? EVF in X100T can cover approx. 100 per cent. staff at the resolution of 2.4 million points. The picture will be more precise, respectively, bright and sharp. No worse situation is with optical viewfinder, which receive 92 percent. coverage. In both cases, we have access to information on the time of exposure, sensitivity shooting mode or settings autofocusu. Information panel has been redesigned, making it more readable and more modern.
Display X100T made in the TFT LCD technology, it features a 3-inch diagonal and a resolution of 1.04 million dots. The screen should be commended for a high contrast ratio, the ability to edit the color settings or brightness, as well as effective anti-reflective coatings.
Although I have written about the possibility of replenishment of energy in Fujifilmie via a microUSB port (which is not feasible in bezlusterkowcu XT1), it should still be aware of the positive consequences of this approach – packing your camera, you do not need to take the AC adapter. Just plug into a laptop equipment; yes, the process will take longer, but if we are to reduce the amount of things taken together on a journey, it would be the best option. Nay, even an ordinary POWERBANK will replenish our compact battery. Sam battery fits in your pocket at the bottom of the camera (where he was also a slot for SD card). Her lifetime estimate for approx. 350 shots with a limited use of Wi-Fi. Manufacturer, referring to the CIPA test, gives a value of 320 klatkom.
The flash lamp
From the flash integrated more important it is the possibility of connecting the lamp system. Just use the hot shoe and enjoy a much more powerful light than that which can be found on the front panel of the body. A significant advantage X100T, especially in comparison with XT1, are much shorter synchronization. While advanced mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera is able to work in time to 1/180 second, X100T offer us up to 1/4000 of a second. The effect will be, among others, such that making a portrait during the day, we can illuminate our object flash – and it's basically regardless of what aperture you choose. Below is a list of compatibility:
- 1/1000 sec at all aperture values;
- 1/2000 f / 4 to f / 16;
- 1/4000 sec f / 8 to f / 16.
The Fuji X100T we have a mechanical shutter, working with the times from 1/4000 to 30 seconds, while here also necessary to distinguish the appropriate times for individual apertures; they will be like in the case of flash synchronization. We also have a bulb mode, whereby you set the exposure up to 60 minutes. Lifetime mechanical shutter manufacturer estimated at approx. 100 thousand. frames.The second option is an electronic shutter – totally silent and allows you to record stills from sometimes 1/32000 seconds (at a maximum equal to 1 second). It is worth noting that the electronic shutter will not work with flash.
Fujifilm X100T is based on a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II, with dimensions of 23.6 x 15.8 mm (APS-C) and the aspect ratio of 3: 2. The sensor does not use a filter antyaliasowego but adequate deployment segment RGB eliminates jerky edges. Moreover, they were equipped in microlens array, so it is assured optimum interaction with the camera lens. Measurements of light makes the 256-meter zone, offering standard systems – multi-pattern, center-weighted and spot. This equipment generates images with maximum dimensions equal to 4896 x 3264 pixels (16MP), but it is also possible to limit resolution of up to 8 and 4 megapixels. We will use here also with the panorama mode (180 or 120 degrees, 9600 x 2160 or 6400 x 2160 pixels). Supported ISO close in values from 200 to 6400, expandable down (ISO 100) and up (12800, 25600 and ISO 51200). The option to increase the scope of the ISO is not possible when using the electronic shutter. The quality of images, especially from the generated noise is very good. Native to the sensitivity limit, ie ISO 6400, executives present themselves well – especially in RAW format. Indeed, since 3200 the noise is noticeable, but it is not nothing, so I could not live. What is important, in equipment such as X100T you can not boast a single piece construction as in the camera system. Here, all three entities responsible for the quality of the picture – ie. The lens matrix and processor – made up into a complete whole. And what – the effect is that at ISO 800 the noise did not discern, and at ISO 1600 it will be slightly visible in most darkened parts of the frame.
X100T is based on 23-millimeter (35 mm equivalent for full frame) lens aperture of f / 2. There's no zoom or problems associated with variable focal ratio. The camera is to have your target group – any group of people who know what they chose. This type of focal length is short enough to capture landscapes and interiors, as well as long enough to check the dynamic portraits. However, if the 35 mm will not be enough – and the producer thought. The offer Fujifilmu find adapters WCL-X100 and the TCL-X100, changing the focal length of 28 mm or 50 mm – on the other hand, I do not know whether in this case is not better just invest in a system bezlusterkowy.During focusing, the structure may extend a few millimeters over a barrel, but during the operation Fujifilmu not even notice. The whole built with 8 elements in 6 groups deployed; exactly as it did in the first X100 and X100S. It should also be noted that one of the lenses have aspheric properties, and all covered with coatings HT-ECB Super EBC. Aperture is a 9-blade and electronically controlled via a mechanical ring that – relative to previous generations – has become a bit more precise. I also had a subjective impression of a more perceptible jump. Importantly, the manufacturer also thought about integrated 3-stage filter, gray, allowing full-aperture shooting in strong sunlight. In X100T not find or optical stabilization, or mechanical. Why? The answer is simple – the camera would then be much larger and more grotesque, and glass with a brightness of f / 2 and ISO 6400 usable its implementation seems to be redundant. I'm not saying that the results would not be better – I note only that are more than sufficient.
Sorry – you have to X100T very serious attention, since the start-up and register the first frame, the camera needs 1.4 seconds. If we treat this equipment as a tool for reportage street, then after a few moments, we will arrive at a situation in which the whole process will take far too long. On the other hand, looking, comparing compact SLR and bezlusterkowcami, because direct competition falls just (or even worse), and cyfrówki on the shelf below … Well, the comparison is meaningless. The advantage of Fuji is definitely noticeable shutter lag and 0.6 seconds that the camera needs to record consecutive images of serial mode disabled. After activating the receive rate equal to six frames per second in both JPEG (60 frames) and RAW (7 frames).
Autofocus is based both on contrast detection, and the detection phase has a face recognition in real time. AF sensor has 49 fields sharpening, each of which can point manually and resize them by turning the rear wheel. In most cases I was happy with the speed autofocusu, and repeatedly, in lower light, setting the field took longer than it should. With 300 milliseconds, which requires the camera with optimal exposure after dark this time is too long increases to 0.8 or even 1 second – this is again the values inappropriate for artists oriented reportage. Personally, I hope that Fuji will present a new system for the next generation of this exquisite hardware. I can not be attached neither to the tracking mode, neither accuracy nor for additional functionality, but the performance of the shade is insufficient.
X100T gives us a lot of disposable filters, whose job is to simulate the effect of a variety of well-known traditional film. What is new is the Classic Chrome, and all the rest come from already known X100 and X100S.
X100T boasts the presence of Wi-Fi. The module providing wireless connectivity allows using mobile equipment based on iOS or Android, remotely control the camera. Just install the Camera app REMOTE ( Google Play , App Store ), and get access to change the aperture, exposure time – virtually all the most important functions that we need. The mere performance of this solution also deserves attention, as the disconnection occurred sporadically. Plus there is also the option to transfer images to your hard drive, the downside – the lack of NFC.
In X100T Fujifilm has improved movie mode, giving the user's hands the possibility of manual exposure control, integrated microphone stereofniczny and a slot for an external microphone (2.5 millimeter in place of the standard, 3.5 mm), as well as more universal klatkaże. With the 1080p we can point values 24, 25, 30, 50 or 60p. Here, however, the lack of optical stabilization and electronic begins to disturb; continues the movie mode in the series is treated as a supplement, not as one of main functions. This is even not only in the absence of the aforementioned, but even with the same design matrix (X-trans). Even the Fuji seems to movie mode unconvinced, not indulging in your hands a dedicated button, and creating only the ability to assign it to one of the function buttons. Importantly, however, it is difficult to write filming in X100T-side flaws, because it's like a sports car to criticize for the fact that it is not buggy. Fuji is not a universal device. In principle this was not to be.
Fujifilm equipment X100T is beautiful, efficient, functional and generating excellent image quality. All of this goes hand in hand with a correspondingly high price, which results in a narrowing of the target group to those who actually know what they expect from the camera. And you can expect a lot. If you want to make sure that even at ISO 6400 Your compact generate an image of a very good dedication of colors and a wide tonal range, the X100T would be a great choice. If you are looking for a bright lens with fixed focal length – here the Japanese proposal will not disappoint anyone. Finally – if you are looking for ergonomics and experience of associating with "live" hardware, it once again proves Fuji hit. The third generation eliminates the disadvantages to which were getting before, and adds something more – support for Wi-Fi or a more elaborate movie mode. However, still remains problematic autofocusu speed after dark (though already on its accuracy can not complain in any case). But this is only one serious flaw, which here doszukałem. What's more – it can also compensate for a comfortable, fully useful ring, additionally supported by a fantastic hybrid viewfinder with an electronic rangefinder. The biggest advantage of X100T is a combination of image quality of the experience offered to shoot this equipment. [temperatura2 product_id = "20364"] [inne_propozycje product_id = "20364"]
