While there is no doubt an appeal for cameras with interchangeable lenses, as it allows photographers to take a wider variety of photos, not everyone is so eager to invest in such an ecosystem or want to lug around several lenses. Some photographers just want to snap photos and move on.
This is where compact cameras come in handy, and Fujifilm’s X100 series is probably one of the more popular options out there today. The lineup as spawned four different models to date and we have heard that a fifth model, the X100V, is in the works, and a report from Fuji Rumors is claiming that the camera could be launching in February 2020.
The report goes on to claim that in terms of price, the X100V could be priced at $1,500 which is a bit disappointing if true. This is because the X100F was launched for $1,300, so the jump to $1,500 will make it a bit of a harder pill to swallow. At those prices, photographers might be better off purchasing a mirrorless camera or an entry-level DSLR that would offer them more flexibility and customization.
In any case, this is only a rumor at this point in time so take it with a grain of salt for now, but if the February 2020 launch is true, we should have the official details soon enough.
