Changing from 35mm to 50mm and 70mm on a Fujifilm X100V


The new Fujifilm X100V has plenty of resolution (26.1 MP) and outstanding image quality. But it also has a single Fujinon 23mm f/2 lens that is a 35mm equivalent. Some photographers wonder if they can live by one lens alone.

But through its digital wizardry, Fujifilm also provides 50mm and 70mm perspectives, and at the full 6240x4160 resolution. In other words, the camera isn't just cropping the picture, it's actually providing you full resolution of what you see in its handsome hybrid viewfinder.

The only real catch to tapping these options is that you have to shoot in Jpeg mode. And to be honest, that's what I'm using most of the time with this camera because the color is excellent.

Once you're in Jpeg mode, just twist the control ring around the lens to switch from 35mm - to 50mm - to 70mm. You don't give up any pixels, and the image quality is quite good.
