Fujifilm Announces the Launch of X100VI Digital Camera

Fujifilm unveiled the X100VI today at its X-Summit in Tokyo, Japan, incorporating the company’s 5th Generation innovations into the iconic X100 design. The new X100VI features the company’s high-resolution 40-megapixel sensor and the X-Processor 5. This improves its performance to par with the X-T5, combining the most recent autofocus algorithms, video, and image quality. Other features include 6.2K30P, 4K60P, 10-bit 4:2:2 capture, and more. The X100VI will also be the first X100 to feature an in-body image stabilizer.

Teiichi Goto, President and CEO of Fujifilm Holdings, said that the company will celebrate its 90th anniversary this year. Image making, as the company’s original business, will continue to be central to the company, he says.

The X100VI features the same improved 23mm f/2 mark II lens, which is comparable to 35mm on full-frame sensors. The EVF is similarly intact, with the same 3.69 million dots as the X100V. As before, the camera has a hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder that can be switched depending on the photographer’s preferences. The “Electronic Range Finder” (ERF) capability allows a miniature EVF to be shown alongside the OVF. This feature allows the photographer to examine either the entire frame or the area of crucial focus, which expands the capabilities of a typical optical viewfinder.

The new camera features a 5th generation CPU, a 40.2MP X-Trans 5 HR sensor, and 5-axis in-body image stabilization with a correction range of 6.0EV. It will use FUJIFILM’s motion blur detection technology, which was introduced with the GFX 100 II. The end result will be a somewhat larger body, roughly 2mm thicker, and 43g heavier than the X100V. The camera has 20 film simulations, including Reala Ace, can capture 10-bit HEIF files, and can shoot at speeds of up to 20 frames per second with the electronic shutter and 11 frames per second with the mechanical shutter.

The sensor has a native base ISO of 125, which is an improvement over the previous generation camera, which could only achieve that level with an enhanced sensitivity setting.

The X100VI can capture 6.2K video at up to 30p, 4K video at up to 60p, and 1080 Full HD at up to 240p at up to 4:2:2 10-bit in both F-Log and F-Log 2.

The X100VI features accessory-free, native Frame.io camera-to-cloud integration, allowing users to connect the camera to the internet, login with Frame.io, and instantly upload photographs and movies as they are captured. Fujifilm’s X100VI, along with the X-H2, H-H2S, and GFX100 II, now supports Frame.io. As previously stated, the X100VI can use Frame.io without any attachments, however the X-H2 and X-H2S both require an optional file transmitter grip, which adds size and weight to the system.

A special edition is also planned to commemorate the company’s 90th anniversary. Only 1,934 copies of this edition will be produced to commemorate the year that FUJIFILM began their long and intriguing journey. The special edition cameras will be offered globally for $1,999 (versus $1,599 for the ordinary model). The special edition cameras have the same design and materials as the silver X100VI, with FUJIFILM’s original 1934 logo etched on the top plate and lens cap. The set also includes a customized box, strap, soft release, and history cards.

The Fujifilm X100VI will be available in silver or black in early March 2024, but it will cost $1,599.95, which is somewhat more than the X100V.
The X100VI Limited Edition will only be available directly from Fujifilm in late March 2024 for $1,999.99.
