In the early days of the X-series, Fujifilm were all about targeting professionals and enthusiasts to their system. After the release of the X-Pro1 in 2012, the X-E1 arrived, which was a slimmed down, more affordable alternative. This was the first sign of Fujifilm expanding their line up to attract photographers who loved the appeal of the small system, but were working to a stricter budget.

Over the years we’ve seen Fujifilm add its entry-level X-A series, develop its hugely successful X-T series and launch its recent X-H series, all of which compliment the much-loved X100-series where the X-series first began.

The X-T100’s menu system is rather dated compared to more advanced X-series cameras

Today, Fujifilm’s X-series provides a healthy range of models for all types of user, from beginner to professional, and continues to flourish with the introduction of new models like the X-T100. Designed to sit above the X-A5, but below the X-T20, it’s aimed at novices who desire an electronic viewfinder and tilting screen at a more affordable price than any previous X-T series camera launched to date.
