Fujifilm X100VI vs Fujifilm X-T5

How to Choose the Right Fujifilm Camera for You

In February 2024 Fujifilm announced the release of the latest addition to their X100 series, the X100VI and, as expected, it’s proving to be an incredibly popular camera. But is it the right camera for you?

If it’s the image and build quality while preserving the essence of analogue shooting in a digital format that’s drawing you to the X100VI, then it’s also worth considering the X-T5, which was released in 2022. These two flagship models from Fujifilm share a lot of similarities. Lizzie from our academy team says: “That’s why we’re here to help you decide the best one for your needs, considering everything from the design to the price.”

Key factors when choosing between the Fujifilm X100VI and X-T5


Starting off our comparison with the most noticeable difference, their design. 

Fujifilm X100VI Digital Camera – This camera has a classic rangefinder design with a fixed 23mm lens. This makes it compact and incredibly travel-friendly – perfect if you’re into street, travel or landscape photography. Or, if you're just someone who values the size and weight of their photography kit.    

Fujifilm X-T5 Mirrorless Camera – In comparison, the Fujifilm X-T5 is more like your classic retro SLR. Featuring a slightly larger body, a more prominent grip and the ability to change lenses to suit your scene. It’s a great choice for anyone looking for more versatility when they’re shooting.


When it comes to performance, both cameras excel in their own right, with both utilising Fujifilm’s 40.2 MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor and the X-Processor 5. This delivers exceptional image quality, characterised by rich colours, impressive dynamic range and excellent low-light performance. 

The X-Processor 5 also provides AI processing technology, advanced autofocus performance and reduced power consumption. 

The X-T5 is well-suited to capturing fast-moving subjects and tracking focus in various conditions. Additionally, its faster burst shooting capabilities make it a favourite among sports and wildlife photographers.

The X100VI offers a more discreet shooting experience, perfect for street photography, thanks to its near-silent leaf shutter and compact form factor.

If you’re looking to add that analogue film look and feel to your photography, then both will enable you to do that with Fujifilm’s Film Simulation modes. 

Being the newer of the two, the X100VI features 20 of these modes, with the addition of REALA ACE mode vs the X-T5 at 19. If you want to take that film look up an extra level, then that can be done with the Grain and Colour Chrome Effects, which feature on both cameras.

Video capabilities

While both of these cameras are predominantly designed for still photography, they do both feature advanced video recording at 6.2K 30p in 4:2:2 10-bit colour. However, because of the option to switch lenses on the X-T5, this would definitely be a better option for hybrid shooters or those who want to dabble in videography.
