The Best Mirrorless Fujifilm Cameras

After many months of research, market-value comparisons, and hands on shooting with each Fuji camera — we’ve broken the best down into one easy list.

Fujifilm X-T4 - Man crouching down with camera.

Fujifilm boasts a legendary brand name, and has been for decades. We’re over the moon excited to share this piece about which of the best Fujifilm cameras we love best — and while there are only 4 listed — understand that there are roughly 39 X-Series cameras on the market today. Fuji’s consistent promise to deliver outstanding firmware updates to their existing line makes it hard to pick which one reigns superior. But after many months of research, market-value comparisons, and hands on approach to shooting with each camera — we’ve broken it down into one easy list. Hope this cuts out the drowning noise that is the internet’s search results, would love to hear which one you bought.

Utilizing a proven and well-regarded APS-C-format 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor, the X100V is capable of high-resolution recording along with support for DCI/UHD 4K video, sensitivity from ISO 160-12800, and continuous shooting up to 11 fps with the mechanical shutter. The BSI design of the sensor affords reduced noise and greater overall clarity and is paired with the X-Processor 4 to achieve fast performance and improved responsiveness.

What We Love:

Best JPEGS Out There

Fuji is no stranger to incredible JPEGs straight from the sensor’s source, making it easy for edits on the fly.

Fixed Lens

Its 23mm F/2.0 fixed lens works swimmingly for shooting lifestyle imagery, since it actually turns into a 35mm equivalent on a full-frame sensor (important to note that the 100V is a cropped mirrorless sensor!).

Big Upgrade from Previous Generations

Designed for higher resolution, lower distortion and improved close focus performance, this lens is a significant upgrade from the design used on previous X100 cameras.

The Details:

Brand: Fujifilm

To Know:

This camera shines high end specs subtly packed into a classic looking camera body, for both photographers and filmmakers alike. The first physical aspect we took a liking to was the flip out screen that not only orientates up and down, side to side, really wherever you need it. This greatly benefits both photographers and filmmakers alike. This, so far, is the only camera we’ve been known to do this. Another incredibly unique feature to the X-T4 is Fuji’s film simulation modes, allowing users to enhance their image with film stock emulators. Some are soft and subdued, while others are bold and vibrant. Although each of these options are typically shot in JPEG mode, RAW files can be simultaneously recorded in case you need a log-profile image for post processing. Thirdly, their improved AF tracking performance actually works (what a concept). It accurately detects hyper focused fast-moving faces, eyes, or manually selected objects for both photos and videos. This changes the game for those who need fast-acting auto settings.

What We Love:

Flip-Out Screen

A screen that quite literally orientates itself to wherever you need it to be.

Better Battery Life: A long-lasting battery life for photos, including two different modes that enable more control.

The Colors

The log-profile screen grabs from video seem almost too good to be true; they boast natural colors and realistic detail. Beautiful straight out of the camera.

In-Body Stabilization

For it only being in-camera stabilization, Caleb and I were both surprisingly impressed by how well the image felt steady and smooth.

The Details:

Brand: Fujifilm

Camera Type: Mirrorless

Best For: JPGs straight out of camera, actually good at photos and video, street photography, great built-in film emulation, vlogging, landscapes, easy transfer to phone, auto focus face/ eye tracking
