Fujifilm’s X100 line has been one of the most popular compact camera choices over the last decade. Even diehard shooters of other brands buy one for their everyday carrying. Starting with the X100 in 2010, the series is now in its fifth iteration with the X100V.
The X100V boasts some impressive features, including a leaf shutter, a fast 23mm f/2 Fujinon lens, and Fujifilm’s famous range of JPG film simulations. What you may not know about the X100V is that it can focus at a distance of just 10 cm (4 inches).
In his latest video, Harmeet Gabha brilliantly demonstrates this short focusing distance using Lego figurines as models. Moving the camera closer and closer to the figurines, Gabha takes a series of photos showing just how close the X100V can focus. He then contrasts this by showing us the same concept with the Fujifilm X-T3 with the 23mm f/1.4 lens attached.
The difference between the two cameras is incredible when you see the images, despite the fact they both have 23mm Fujinon lenses.
Is the Fujifilm X100V a secret macro camera? From the look of these photos, it certainly does deliver results that have a macro look to them. Check out the video for yourself to see the intriguing results.
