The Fujifilm X-T5 is the company’s latest camera, and an evolution of the X-T series, rather than a revolution. It’s a classically controlled SLR-style camera that is ideal for serious enthusiasts, thanks to the traditional dials on the top of the camera which will help you change ISO and shutter speed settings quickly.
The X-T5 takes the much-loved Fujifilm X-T4 further in terms of resolution but is still ideal for shooters who want a lightweight camera. It has an excellent 40.2MP sensor, 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 6.2K/30P, and a 3-way tilting touchscreen for flexible image composition.
In terms of the way that it looks, feels, and handles, the X-T5 is in a class of its own, offering a different experience than the similarly specced X-H2. See our comparison article Fujifilm X-T5 vs X-H2 if you’re not sure which is right for you.

The Fujifilm X-H2 is an extremely compelling camera at an equally compelling price. This camera has the highest resolution yet in an APS-C camera, its 40-megapixel sensor surpassing that of all but a handful of full-frame cameras. With 8K video and 5-axis IBIS to boot, you get impressive performance for an impressive price!
The design and handling are identical to the X-H2S, which is the more powerful of the two cameras, and has an increased price tag to match. However the X-H2 is still an incredibly specced out camera, and we think that the X-H2 offers more than enough bang for your buck that will please most photographers. For any photographer that is passionate about capturing high-speed action or amazing video, it’s the best Fujifilm camera yet.

Fujifilm is doing something for medium format photography that no other brand has managed. It’s made the luxury of having a 100MP sensor more affordable while maintaining incredible image quality, fast autofocus, and a high-end build.
The GFX100S has a more compact body than the original GFX 100 but doesn’t compromise on sensor resolution or in-body stabilization. Somehow, Fujifilm has managed to make a camera that delivers everything the original GFX100 could deliver, only in a smaller body and at not much more than half the price. It’s the kind of camera wizardry we live for and there’s no surprise it made it into our top picks.

The Fujifilm X-S10 is the best all-around buy in the Fujifilm lineup right now, and it has something for everyone. It’s got a full-articulated screen and generally handles very well, despite having fewer external control dials and buttons compared to other cameras in the X-series.
Having IBIS (in-body stabilization) is also a huge bonus, making it easier to shoot hand-held with slower shutter speeds, which is hugely useful for low-light work. In terms of APS-C cameras, we’re hard-pressed to think of one that offers a better balance of features, performance, and price than the Fujifilm X-S10, and that’s why it’s our top pick.

Fujifilm’s original X100 was the camera that sparked people’s obsession with Fujifilm’s retro-styled modern cameras. Five models later, the Fujifilm X100V is still a very popular choice for those who want a premium camera without the faff of changing lenses. With a street-friendly fixed lens equivalent to 35mm, it makes it the perfect camera for street photographers or portrait photographers alike.
It has the same exceptional build quality as all Fujifilm cameras in a small, pocketable version. It has the same 26.1MP X-Trans sensor as the X-T4 and the same hybrid viewfinder as in the X-Pro 3. The X100V is an advanced, APS-C fixed lens camera and is certainly aimed at enthusiasts, but its slick design and up-to-date features don’t come cheap.
The Fujifilm X100V is perpetually out of stock around the world, and has a months-long order list so is not the easiest to buy, but that only demonstrates what an incredible camera this is, and well worth adding your name to the wait list.

In our early verdict hands-on, we found that Fujifilm X-S20 is the perfect camera for most people, with its very straightforward controls, excellent fully automatic modes, it’s small and compact size, and its deceptively powerful processor capable of 6K video and subject recognition tracking, photo enthusiasts, content creators, and vloggers will find a lot to love.
The price is a little higher than the previous version, which might put some people off, although, for the cost, you are getting a considerably capable camera that is more than enough for most users’ needs.

The Fujifilm X-H2S is the fastest camera in the Fujifilm X-mount range, with a chunky pro-spec body and handling, a top-mounted status panel, and a fifth-generation sensor offering four times the speed of its predecessor.
The X-H2S can shoot at 40fps with minimal screen blackout, capture 6K video or 4K at up to 120p, has in-body stabilization, a flip-out vari-angle screen, and a 5.76m dot electronic viewfinder. There’s so much power here that only a professional photographer or videographer will need it – and it comes at a price. The X-H2S is the ultimate professional APS-C camera and is ideal for wildlife and sports.

The Fujifilm X-T4 is a firm favorite at DCW for several reasons. It’s possibly the best and most sophisticated APS-C camera you can buy (or was, before the X-H2S) thanks to its 6.5 stops of in-body image stabilization, 4K video, extensive range of codecs, super-fast burse speeds, a responsive EVF viewfinder, its full articulated screen, and its impressive battery life.
The sensor is a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans sensor which is more than enough resolution for most people and it can shoot really high-quality 4K too. The initial RRP is a bit higher than its predecessor (the Fujifilm X-T3) but you are getting a lot more for your money.

The Fujifilm X-T30 has been one of the firm’s most popular cameras for quite some time, packing bits and pieces of pro-level tech into a body that is sized and priced for a more casual user.
This X-T30 II is not a huge upgrade on the original X-T30, instead, it’s a minor refresh, with a larger screen and inherited autofocus technology from the flagship X-T4. It’s clearly designed to mollify those who have been champing at the bit for an X-T40, and it should just about manage that.
Capable of creating gorgeous-looking images, especially with the various film simulation modes, the X-T30 II is a hugely pleasurable camera to use. It’s not much of an upgrade on the original X-T30, which is still widely available, so if it’s a little beyond your budget, that camera might be the better option.

Styled on a classic rangefinder camera but featuring the latest digital technology, The Fujifilm X-Pro3 review is aimed at people who want a retro camera with modern features.
The X-Pro 3 includes the latest 26.1MP X-Trans sensor, improved autofocus, and a unique screen design. Instead of having a screen that always shows an image, it has a screen that folds flat against the body and uses a small digital screen that imitates film packet slots on the back of film cameras. The hybrid electrical/optical viewfinder makes it stand out from other Fujifilm cameras as it offers a fully electronic mode, an optical mode with electronic overlays, and a digital rangefinder mode.
Released in 2019, the Fujifilm X-Pro3 has retained its high price point, and stock is increasingly harder to come by, otherwise, it might appear much higher in the list. This is certainly a camera that you would buy if you’re looking for something a little more specialist.

At first glance, the Fujifilm X-E4 might seem very similar to the X-T4 but in reality, it’s quite a different camera. While the X-T4 is aimed at professionals looking for a decent all-rounder, the X-E4 is more aimed at enthusiasts or travel photographers who want something compact and portable but with the handling of a traditional camera.
The X-E4 features the same sensor and focussing system as the X-T4 but it doesn’t include IBIS. Unlike the X-T4, the X-E4 is a rangefinder-style camera which, a bit like Marmite, some people love and some people hate. The X-E4 comes in either black or silver and it works best with Fujifilm’s prime lenses.

Fujifilm revolutionized the world of medium format with its mirrorless GFX series of comparatively small and relatively affordable large-sensor cameras. The Fujifilm GFX 50S II is perhaps the best distillation of the formula yet, cramming a gorgeous 51.4MP sensor into a body that’s actually portable.
What’s new with this model though is the 6.5-stop image stabilization system, which improved over the other GFX cameras and further expands the camera’s real-world usability.
This also enables the inclusion of a Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode, which combines 16 RAW images to create huge 200MP files. The GFX 50S II has a burst rate of just 3fps, and can only shoot Full HD video at 30p, but Fujifilm has correctly divined that nobody is buying this camera for its action-shooting or video capabilities. It does what it’s designed to do and does it exceptionally well.

How to chose the best Fujifilm camera
Fujfilm cameras come in three distinct varieties, firstly there is the Fujifilm X series, which is Fujifilm’s small and compact APS-C sensor series of cameras. These cameras are ideal for anyone looking for the latest ground breaking technology, but in a package that is easy to move around with. This range of cameras are often most used by street and travel photographers as well as content creators.
The X series of cameras can then be split into two categories – SLR style bodies, such as the Fujifilm X-T5 and rangefinder style bodies like the Fujifilm X-E4 or X100V. The style of body doesn’t dictate camera features, but ergonomics and what it is like to use the camera. This comes down to personal choice of what feels most natural, with both sides being vocal about their preferences.
Finally, there is the GFX series of cameras from Fujifilm. These are the cameras to consider if you are a professional or serious enthusiast photographer. They do not come with cheap price tags, and they are a lot bulkier to carry around, so you are less likely to just throw them in a bag or jacket pocket. However, they do offer medium format sensors with huge photo resolutions and the increased dynamic range and equivalent depth of field offered by medium format sensors.
Fujifilm cameras come and go quite frequently, announced at the annual X-Summit event, so this list is kept regularly up to date with all the models available now.
How we test cameras
We test cameras both in real-world shooting scenarios and in carefully controlled lab conditions. Our lab tests measure resolution, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio. Resolution is measured using ISO resolution charts, dynamic range is measured using DxO Analyzer test equipment and DxO Analyzer is also used for noise analysis across the camera’s ISO range. We use both real-world testing and lab results to inform our comments in buying guides.
Are Fujifilm cameras good professional cameras?
Absolutely! Don’t be put off by an APS-C sensor, the quality of the images from the latest Fujifilm cameras is indistinguishable from the quality from full frame sensors in rival Canon or Sony cameras. The latest cameras including the Fujifilm X-T5 and Fujifilm X-H2S have 40MP resolutions which is far beyond many full frame rivals while also offering video specs that blow the competition away.
Are Fujifilm cameras good for beginners?
Fujifilm doesn’t currently offer the truly entry level cameras that Canon and Sony push, however, don’t let that put you off, Fujifilm has plenty of models that are great for beginners who are keen to learn more about photography. The Fujifilm X-T30 II is a great option for beginner photographers who don’t want to spend a lot of money, but are keen to get a cutting edge camera with the ability to dip into manual controls when needed.
