Fujifilm’s X-T100 is an entry-level addition to the Japanese company’s highly successful X Series range of mirrorless digital cameras. It boasts an eye-catching SLR-style body design and offers lots of spec and feature bang for its RRP of R11 500.
At that price, the X-T100 is one of the more accessibly priced mirrorless cameras that will be a perfect companion for novices and hobbyists to pick up. When they do, they will get a camera that can remain with them far longer into their camera journey compared to other entry-level mirrorless cameras: from getting to grips with the basics, through to becoming expert that require more features through which they can exploit their expanded knowledge and capabilities.
This mirrorless camera’s body is light and easy to manage, as the X-T100 weighs just 448g. It packs a three-way tilting 3″ TFT LCD viewfinder (1,040K-dot) that can extended all the way outwards, helping to easily compose self-portraits and is also quite handy for beginner vloggers and YouTubers.

Seeing that the viewfinder is a touchscreen, you can do things like select the focus-point on screen or zoom in or out of images by simply using your fingers.
