Why the Fujifilm X100V is a better street photography camera than my iPhone 11 Pro

Do we really still need compact cameras in 2020? After all, the iPhone 11 Pro is one of the best travel cameras ever made and smartphones in general have delivered a Terminator-style Judgment Day on point-and-shoot cameras. But the Fujifilm X100V has provided a timely reminder that dedicated cameras, even compacts, can still be essential photography tools. Yes, even in the age of incredible phone cameras.

How so? Having spent a few hours with the Fujifilm X100V – and a little longer with its predecessors – I can say that it comes closer than anything to packing traditional camera strengths into a pocket-friendly form factor. If my iPhone often feels like the photographic equivalent of getting an Uber, the X100V is like tearing around country lanes in a Mazda MX5.

This is less a debate about outright image quality – I haven't spent quite long enough with the X100V to make definitive statements about that yet – but more about the X100V as a concept and street photography sidekick.
