Introducing X100VI

Fujifilm cameras is at it again with the latest announcement of it’s new camera, the Fujifilm X100VI. This digital camera is the latest in Fuji’s x100 series of great APS-C cropped cameras, providing a high resolution, high-speed camera perfect for getting the most out of every pixel in each shot. It is different than the full frame Fujifilm GFX cameras. The 23.5mm x 15.7mm (APS-C) X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor with primary color filter produces over 40 million effective pixels for tremendous image quality. Use the .05” EVF or electronic viewfinder to compose beautiful shots as with the fold out LCD screen you can hold the camera at waist level and see the entirety of your photography scene through the flip out LCD EVF, it becomes a sort of hybrid viewfinder as you can switch the EVF, and what the sensor sees, and OVF, which also shows what’s outside the frame not just in the sensor. This great digital camera will compete with the likes of Sony, Leica and others.

This camera is beautifully designed and ready for street photography. With it’s 6 stops of image stabilization with IBIS or “In body image stabilization”, this camera is made for handheld photography as shake and blur which is often associated with handheld photography should be a thing of the past. The X-processor 5 contained on the Fujifilm X100VI is an upgrade over the 4th generation previous model of the processor. With reduced power usage and the ability to record files in HEIF which are more space saving but still retain that higher resolution you are aiming for. The X-processor 5 uses an advanced algorithm in it’s autofocus capabilities. It can easily detect animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes, trains, insects, and drones. Please mote that the camera needs to be set to “Bird” to detect birds and flying insects and to “Airplane” to detect drones in the sky.

In addition with the included Fuji Film Simulation, using software like Reala Ace will help your artistic design ideas to create amazing high quality jaw dropping images suitable for all lighting conditions, even low light conditions. You can also achieve the desired texture of your image by having the Fujifilm X100VI add natural looking grain and get those high ISO type looking shots.
