The X100F was introduced by Fujifilm in January 2017. It belongs to the enthusiast Compacts category.
Fujifilm is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Fujifilm.
The X100F features a CMOS X-TRANS III sensor in APS-C size that has an area of approximately 24 x 16 mm² (0.93" x 0.61").
This infographic compares the X100F's sensor to other common formats:
(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)
The X100F's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 24 megapixel. The resolution is above average and will be sufficient for the foreseeable future. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.
The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

(0.93" x 0.61")
|Type||CMOS X-TRANS III|
|Resolution (physical)||24.30 megapixel|
|Resolution (effective)||24.30 megapixel|
|Pixel size||15.50 µm²|
The X100F has a built-in lens that can not be changed.
The wide-angle lens with a focal length of 35mm has a largest aperture of F2.0.
The X100F uses an hybrid viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this.The magnifcation is c. 0.50x, an average value for an electronic or hybrid viewfinder.
The infographic illustrates the viewfinder magnification of the X100F. The black area represents a magnification of 1x, corresponding to natural size. The red frame indicates the largest viewfinder magnification in any digital camera on the market today (0.85x).
Tip: If the viewfinder image of the X100F is fuzzy, us the little wheel next to the viewfinder to adjust the sharpness.
The X100F's shutter speeds range from 1/4000s to 30s.
|Max. shutter speed||1/4000s|
|Min. shutter speed||30s|
The X100F's sensitivity goes from 200 ISO und 12800 ISO, a very useful and practical range.
Additionally, the Fujifilm's sensitivity can be boosted to 51200. However, ISO boosting will almost always lead to an increase in noise.
|Min. sensitivity||200 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||12800 ISO|
The X100F supports all common metering modes.
The Fujifilm will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.
The X100F's auto focus processor uses 91 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. with low contrast subjects).
Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The X100F features a built-in flash with a range of up to 9m (30 ft.). That range will work for most situations.
A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Fujifilm's hotshoe. Very useful for indirect flashes or for trigggering remote flashes.
The X100F features a monitor with a diagonal of 76.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.
Unfortunately, the X100F's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.
The X100F does not feature a touch screen.
Display characteristics at a glance:
When recording videos with the X100F, the highest supported resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixel, in other words Full HD Video. 4K videos are not supported by the Fujifilm.
The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

|CONNECTIVITY & WIRELESS|
The X100F has Wifi connectivity already built-in. Use Wifi to transfer images to a smartphone or computer and to remote control the camera.Connect the Fujifilm to a monitor or TV set over HDMI.
The Fujifilm connects to your PC over USB 2.0.

What memory cards can be used with the Fujifilm X100F?
The camera will accept all common SD HC and SD XC cards.
With an average image size of 12 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 2670 images.

Let's have a look at some other features of the Fujifilm X100F:
The X100F doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.
The X100F doesn't have a built-in stabilizer. It would be nice to have, nut is hardly a necessity with the fixed lens.
The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Fujifilm over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.
If you are into HDRs, the camera won't create those automatically. You will have to manually create image sequences and later assemble those sequnces in third-party software.
The X100F is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.
The Fujifilm's features in a handy table:
The Fujifilm X100F works with a NP-W126S battery. The battery lifetime is an average 270 shots. That's on the lower side of things for a full day, consider a spare battery for the X100F.
The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.

|Battery life||270 photos|
The Fujifilm X100F's dimensions are 126.5 x 74.8 x 52.4mm³. (5.0" x 2.9" x 2.1"). This includes the lens. The camera's weight is a reasonable 469 grams (15.1 oz.), lens included.
Front and top view of the X100F with dimensions:
To put the size of the camera in context, here it is next to a typical ID card (c. 86mm x 55mm, about the size of a credit card).
The X100F is clearly bigger:

Our rating of the Fujifilm X100F
When Fuji introduced the X100 some years ago it was a runaway success. Large sensor, excellent controls and vintage design were a winning combination. The fourth generation, X100F, extends the series with greatly improved autofocus, a higher resolving viewfinder and faster continuous drive.
The fixed lens (35mm focal length equivalent) remains unchanged from previous versions but adds a sensor that detects when wide-angle or tele converters are attached.
Recommended for enthusiasts who do not mind the fixed lens and the rather hefty price tag. For a comparable retro-style camera with interchangeable lenses, see the Olympus Pen F.
