The Affordable Fujifilm X100V Alternative

Looking for a vintage camera with modern technology but not willing to pay the high prices for Fujifilm X100 series? Don’t worry, there is a solution for you! A photographer has created the fake Fujifilm X100V that is as good as, if not better than most of the X100 lineup. And the best part? The images from this camera can blend in with Fuji's film simulations and film recipes using some settings and tricks that you will learn for free.

The Fujifilm X100 series has recently gone up in price, making it difficult for some to justify the cost. However, the fake Fujifilm X100V is a great alternative that is aesthetically similar and has comparable features to the X100 series. Even better, it's more affordable!

Part of the Fujifilm appeal is their vintage aesthetic on what is a very modern camera. The fake Fujifilm X 100 V fits the bill for a minimal vintage style street camera. With this camera, you can get a comparable experience with the X 100 series, including the shallow depth of field on some subjects. If you're looking for some bokeh in your shots, this camera can deliver a very similar experience.

You can get almost identical field of view and shooting experience with the fake Fujifilm X100 V and the Olympus OM-D E-M10, which is aesthetically similar to the X100 series. The 17mm f 1.8 lens of the E-M10 gives a 34mm full-frame equivalent focal length, and it even has a clutch physical focus ring that provides physical manual focus control with a zone focus scale.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 uses a mechanical curtain shutter, while the X100 uses a leaf shutter that lives inside the lens. However, the raw files from the Olympus are very pleasing straight out of the camera and easy to tweak in the right direction to get a Fuji look.

Getting the Fuji effect on your images is much easier with the fake Fujifilm X100V. When you begin pushing and pulling the different hues, luminance, and curves on the Olympus images, it's not long until you get that Fuji look. In terms of contrast and saturation, the Olympus raw files are also very nice out of camera.

With the settings and tricks that you'll learn, you can easily copy the Fuji aesthetic without spending a fortune. The fake Fujifilm X 100 V is a great option for those looking for a vintage-style camera with modern features. Get ready to blend in with the Fuji crowd and take amazing photos!
