It looks like we might finally have good news on our hands after waiting for literally eons to hear word regarding Fujifilm’s new entry dubbed as Fujifilm X100VI. Considering the fact that its previous iteration lived up to its hype, camera enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for how this new entry will turn out in real-world scenarios. 

The new Fujifilm X100VI is set to confirm some leaks that have been introduced in the past as it will be fit for street and travel photography making it quite an ideal pick for vloggers and content creators alike. Here are some features that will be packed into this compact and powerful X100 entry:

  • we’ve known for a while now that this new entry would roll out with its own In-Body Stabilization mechanism, however, it would be much more improved than the X100V, so that it caters easily to vloggers on the go.
  • The Fujifilm Handheld X100VI is set to break records with its new 40MP X-Trans V sensor, a higher resolution sensor which means users will see massive improvements, especially during digital zoom crops when using the camera’s teleconverter feature, we cannot wait to use the fixed 35mm lens with this sensor.
  • The sensor won’t be the only upgrade that everyone is so eager to get their hands on this camera, Fujifilm knows this, henceforth, they are also planning to accompany the 40MP X-Trans V sensor along with the latest X-Processor 5 for powerful image processing capabilities. 
  • However, as per leaks that have surfaced on Reddit and Twitter, we believe the form factor would be pretty much the same which makes me skeptical about the fact that it would look identical to the X100V or not.
  • It’s been also confirmed that Fujifilm will likely equip the X100VI with their larger NP-W235 battery for increased battery life over the previous NP-W126 cell.
  • Keep in mind that there is no official word on the connectivity aspect regarding this new handheld camera, however, a bunch of crucial ports and fast charging capabilities along with WIFI 6E or higher would satisfy the needs of every evolving industry.

Currently, there is no comment on how the optics of the camera would see improvement, however, there is hope that it would have drastic improvements for videographers. 

As for the buzz, some Redditors were quick to point out a couple of aspects regarding how much it would weigh “This better be lighter than the X100V, however, I am skeptical since it has integrated IBIS!”

However, Twitter users weren’t shying away either, in fact, one tweet suggested “The 40MP X-Trans V seems mouthwatering, the color vibrancy would be top-notch, it’s nice to know the industry is rolling in towards high-resolution sensors.”

Nevertheless, my team is extremely optimistic about the news and is working round the clock to dig for any possible bits of information as it certainly piques our interest, which is why we are looking really forward to how they would turn out in real-world scenarios. Speaking of which, the specifications mentioned above are subject to be changed when Fujfilms decides to do a complete unveil when it releases its new Fujifilm X100VI to the world around 20th February at the Fujifilm X Summit will take place in Tokyo.
