According to recent reports, Fujifilm to feature a 40-megapixel X-Trans V sensor in the upcoming Fujifilm X100VI. Fujifilm is set to elevate the X100 series with the upcoming X100VI, featuring a formidable 40-megapixel X-Trans V sensor. This higher resolution not only promises enhanced image quality but also introduces newfound flexibility through larger cropping options, augmenting the capabilities of the fixed lens X100 series. Higher resolution allows for larger cropping, giving the fixed lens X100 series a little more flexibility.
The continuity of the X100VI lens with its predecessor, the X100V, ensures compatibility with Fujifilm’s conversion lenses WCL-X100 and TCL-X100. This strategic decision enhances the versatility of the X100VI, catering to a broader range of photographic needs. The adoption of the 40-megapixel sensor emerges as a potential standout feature, positioning the X100VI as a compelling choice for photography enthusiasts.
However, questions arise about image stabilization, especially considering the increased pixel count. Concerns linger regarding potential camera shake in adverse conditions, prompting inquiries about the inclusion of In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS). As Fujifilm navigates the evolving landscape of camera technology, the X100VI’s anticipated release holds promise for both innovation and image quality.
If the Fujifilm X100VI gets 40-megapixel X-Trans V sensor, then the X-Pro4 will get it too. We also think both upcoming models will probably get IBIS as well. Considering the series overall, we think the new model only needs IBIS and weather sealing not the higher megapixel count.
The camera is expected around February 20th. Fujifilm X100V is available with a price tag of $1399, or $1799 CAD. Check availability at B&H Photo / Amazon / Adorama. Fujifilm X100V vs X100F vs X100T vs X100S vs X100 Comparison
