Key features:

  • Built to last
  • Excellent image quality
The Fujifilm X100T is a great-looking camera, packed to the rafters with retro charm. It’s not all style over substance though. With its magnesium alloy frame and tough, leather-texture finish, it feels like it’s built to last – if you take good care of it, this could serve you for a good many years. At 127 x 74 x 52mm, it’s not exactly pocket-friendly but the quality of the photos it captures can give high-end DSLRs a run for their money. The all-purpose 35mm lens is fast too, and offers very pleasant bokeh. However, it’s prone to flare, so it’s worth investing in a lens hood. Video capture is disappointing.

USB charging and Wi-Fi connectivity are offered as standard, with NFC a notable omission. The 3-inch, non-touchscreen display is decent but is blown out of the water by the excellent hybrid viewfinder. The camera’s manual controls deliver a satisfyingly ‘dirty’ feel too, and will help you develop as a photographer.

Price: £999
