Fujifilm's newest camera is the X100V. It's the fifth-generation X100 camera and the successor to 2017's X100-F.

The X100-V boasts new sensor, image processor, and lens. It has a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans IV CMOS APS-C sensor and X-Processor 4 image-processing engine, which is the same sensor and image processor used in the X-T3, X-T30, and X-Pro3.

The lens is a newly developed prime lens with a focal length of 23mm and a maximum aperture of f/2. Though the focal length and maximum aperture are unchanged, Fujifilm says the new lens has less distortion and has improved close focus performance.

Lastly, the rear LCD now tilts, which can be handy in situations where you want to take photos above a crowd or from a low angle.

The X100V can record videos too, at 4K up to 30fps or at Full-HD up to 120fps. And if you want to get funky, the X100V features no less than 17 digital Film Simulations.

Longtime fans will also be happy to know that the new X100V has retained the series' signature retro looks but has improved build thanks to aluminium top and bottom plates. Controls such as shutter speed, ISO, and aperture remain easily accessible. It also comes in black and silver.

The Fujifilm X100V is priced at S$2,148 and is available for pre-order from now until 23 February 2020.

Pre-orders will come with the following gifts: 16GB and 32GB Strontium SD cards, 2 pieces of NP-W126S batteries, a Sirui camera bag, and 24 months warranty.
