More Buffer Inside the Fuji X-T100

With the new Fuji XT 100 camera we are getting more buffer, the more buffer helps you to record more continuous frames in a single row as well as it allow you to record 30 minutes of 4K video without interrupting in the middle of the recording. For those who don’t know the Fuji XA 5 4K recording limit is 5 minutes only.

Viewfinder Coming from X-T20

Other noticeable advantages coming with Fuji X-T100 camera is built in viewfinder as we have already seen inside the Fuji X T20 camera. 2.36 M dot viewfinder really helps when you are shooting in sunny-light.

Things Remains Same

So these are the two major differences between the two camera a big buffer and viewfinder com after that we have same sensor, same High ISO range, auto focusing system of both camera is exactly same while having 91 auto focusing points. The image processor of both the camera is exactly same.

The cost difference between the camera is minimal, you have to pay $100 extra to get a bit better buffer and a viewfinder.

If you need a better buffer and Viewfinder than you should spend $100 over the X-T100 camera. However, the image quality of both the camera will remains same since both of them having same sensor and image processor inside.

Fuji X-T100 vs Fuji X-A5 – Video Comparison

Fuji X-T100 Sample Images

Finally, we have the official announcement from Fuji related to X-T100 announcement. Fuji X-T100 camera features really good specification for beginners, And comes at an affordable price tag $699 [with kit lens] that sits below the price of Fuji X-T20.

As we all know that the camera features same sensor as we have seen inside the Fuji X-A5 camera, the image processor as well as the high ISO range of both the camera is exactly same. So, we do expect, you don’t going to notice a big difference between the image quality of the Fuji X-A5 camera and the Fuji XT 100 camera.

However, we will going to do image comparison later on here we have the sample images of the Fuji XT 100 camera, and which do look nice to me. You can download high resolution images from the link below.

Weight 361 g 344 g

Let’s talk about the sensor in both the camera,  Both mirrorless camera features aps-c sensor with 24 megapixel resolution.

1. AutoFocus

If you talk about hybrid autofocus in system then the Fuji remains limited to 91 points where as the Sony A6000 features 25 contrast detect AF points added with 179 Phase AF points. With Sony a6000 high density AF system you will going to get more frame coverage compared to the Fuji X-A5.

2. Fuji X-A5 1 Stop more ISO

Fuji X-A5 camera features  one stop more ISO range compared to the Sony a6000 camera so we might see some improvement in the low light performance of the camera compared to the a6000.

3. Electronic shutter

Fujifilm X-A5 camera features Global shutter.  So, Fuji camera is quite helpful in some situation like shooting action and  Sports.

4. Burst Rate and Buffer

Continuous shooting a speed of Sony a6000 is better compared to the Fuji X-A5.  Fuji, allowed a little buffer  inside the Fuji X-A5 camera.  Whereas, Sony a6000 you get a large  buffer, with Sony a6000 you can capture 40 JPG file in a single burst,  and you can also capture 24 files in a single click. But, with Fuji X-A5 camera  the continuous shooting a speed of 6 frames per second limited to 10 shots only and after that you have to allow buffer to clearup.

5. Video – Fuji features limited 4K

Fuji X-A5  camera features 4K video recording with Limited frame rate of 15 frames per second and a time limit of 5 minutes only.  which is really insane,  its look like Fuji somehow added the 4K video mode inside the X-A5 camera.

So I am considering that both camera can record a decent FULL HD video, but for 4K recording you have to seek a different camera.

6. Wireless Transfer

At the end if you have a habit of transferring your files from camera to your smartphone,  then you shouldn’t buy the Fuji X-A5 camera.  Fuji X-A5  camera wireless transfer is done with bluetooth only which is slow.  Sony a6000 uses built in wireless and NFC connectivity to transfer files fastly.

Both, are excellent camera but the Sony a6000 features a high density auto focusing system and the continuous shooting speed of Sony is more with large buffer. Fuji X-A5 offer one stop more lowlight sensitivity compared to the a6000, so may see bit cleaner images at High ISO range.

1. Sensor

Both camera features 24 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, with Fuji you can expect bit sharp images since no low pass filter is present inside the camera.

2.  AF System

Fuji offers 91 AF points than of Canon EOS M100 49 AF points, so the frame coverage of X-A5 will be more compared to the Canon EOS M100 camera.

The Fuji features Hybrid AF system and the Canon EOS m100 feature dual pixel CMOS auto focusing system. In general during the comparison we generally see the dual pixel CMOS sensor is faster compared to the hybrid ones.

Electronic shutter play a vital role when you need them, And the Fuji XF 5 camera do after electronics shutter  1/32000. Canon EOS m100 remains limited to Medical Center limit of 1 / 4000.

3. Continuous shooting Speed

Due to Limited BUFFER the continuous shooting speed of Fuji X-A5 is limited to 10 shots only when you are riding on 6 frame per second where as the Canon EOS m100 camera offers 6 frames per second continuous shooting speed and you can shoot it flawlessly 99 packs on a single click,  and after that the speed drops to 5.5 FPS but it will going to continue until the card ends.

4. Video – X-A5 or EOS M100

Fuji X A5 camera offers 4K video With 15 frames per second with time limit of 5 minutes only which is really a big trouble for beginner and or even professional film makers,  but they have a decent full HD video mode also.

Canon EOS m100 camera doesn’t offer 4K video what what it do offer full HD video recording mode.

So, both camera is good for record Full HD videos and don’t get carried away by reading the specification of the Fuji X-A5 camera.

Fuji X-A and Canon EOS M100, both features excellent core specification. But with Fuji We are getting few extra things for sure, such as shutter and ISO range and a 5Min 4K video mode with 15fps. So, at the end you have to decide which camera you want to buy ?
