Our take on the Fujifilm WCL-X100

by Woody Sherman
Fujifilm

You may already love your Fujifilm X-100 for its amazing image quality, but just imagine this: if you could increase your wide-angle coverage by attaching a simple conversion lens — no adapter ring necessary — wouldn't you be interested? Especially if we told you that the image quality is comparable to that of the original lens? Think about getting the whole building in view, the expansive seascape after the storm, the entire drum-line of the marching band.

Fujifilm knows optics. They've made incredible lenses one of their signature calling cards since the company was founded. So if you want to increase your X100's photographic vocabulary without any compromises, take a long, considering look at this wide conversion lens.

You'll need to have firmware update Ver. 1.30 or later installed on your X-100 to use the wide conversion lens.

Features

Overview: The Fujifilm WCL-X100 is a wide angle conversion lens, designed for use with the Finepix X-100 digital camera.

Conversion: The WCL-X100 has a magnification factor of 0.8x, and converts the focal length from 23mm (35mm equivalent) to 19mm (28mm equivalent). The converter simply screws onto the lens of the X-100. The X-100's lens brightness (f-stop value) is not affected by the conversion lens.

Camera Settings: For best results, you should select the "Wide Conversion Lens" option in the X-100's menu system. The camera automatically applies image processing to shots taken with the conversion lens to reduce image distortion and balance illumination across the frame. The camera's firmware should also be updated to version 1.30 or later.

Construction: The WCL-X100 is made of the same materials, textures, and colors as the existing X100. The conversion lens uses four premium glass elements in three groups to minimize chromatic aberrations. It also has the Fujinon Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating).

Functionality: The WCL-X100 maintains the full functionality of the X-100, including the Hybrid Viewfinder. When selecting the camera's optical viewfinder, there are icons to show the edge of the frame (equivalent to 80% frame field of view), instead of the frame rim. If you select the electronic viewfinder, you will see a 100% field of view. Auto focusing speeds and 10cm macro capability are the same with the conversion lens. You can also use the optional LH-X100 lens hood and PRF-49S protective filter with the WCL-X100 in place.

Great addition to an already great camera!

Written By BrooklynJames, Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Beautiful wider angle clarity to an already beautiful lens (35 to 28), Sometimes you just can't step back enough without getting run over or falling off a bridge!
Pros:
Lovely little adapter, and nice pouch and box
Cons:
Don't forget to change the menu setting to Wide Conversion, unless you want some weird barrel distortion...
