For owners of Fujifilm X100 and X100S cameras, there’s a new tele-conversion lens to supplement the fixed f/2 lens. The new TCL-X100 attaches directly onto the camera and increases the fixed focal length by approximately 1.4x, converting it from 23mm to a 33mm fixed focal length.

Offering a high optical quality seen in other Fujinon lenses, the TCL-X100 delivers high-resolution images, even at the wide f/2 aperture setting. A coating on the lens helps decrease the amount of ghosting and flare. The TCL-X100 is fully compatible with the hybrid viewfinder of the X100 and X100S cameras and retains the autofocusing speed, while offering a 5.5-inch macro shooting distance. Users can choose their desired field of view level. The only requirement is that the cameras’ firmware need to be upgraded to their latest versions.

The TCL-X100 has been manufactured using the same materials, textures, and finishes as the X100 and X100S. The TCL-X100 will be available in May 2014, for $350.

Both the X100 and X100S were incredibly well received in our reviews, with the X100S earning our Editors’ Choice recognition.

Best Camera Deals: Save on Canon, Panasonic, Nikon, and GoPro
fujifilm x t4 review set 2 dm 1

Whether you're looking for the best digital cameras or the best travel cameras, there are a ton of options out there, sometimes too many options, especially for those who aren't familiar with the photography world. Luckily, we've done a lot of legwork for you and collected a range of great camera deals across the spectrum, so even if you want something more sports-oriented, like a GoPro, there are a couple of deals for those too. So, let's jump right into it.
Today's Best Camera Deals
One of our favorite deals is the Canon EOS Rebel T7 going for $400, as it's one of the better DSLR cameras on the market, and it has a reasonably budget-friendly price on it, making it a great starter camera. Of course, if you've been in the game for a while and are looking for a powerful upgrade, the Sony Alpha 7R IV is one of the best full-frame cameras on the market, and while it still costs a hefty $3,200, that's still $300 off the usual $3,500 price tag. That said, if you're looking for something more portable and action-oriented, you can't go wrong with the GoPro HERO11 Black Mini, although if you're a professional content creator, the GoPro HERO9 Black 5K is probably the one to go for instead.

Do I Need a DSLR or a Mirrorless Camera?
Like most things, this really depends on what you're trying to do. Mirrorless cameras have fewer internal moving parts, which generally means they can capture images quicker, so if you're taking pictures of action-packed stuff like sports or animals in the wilderness, a mirrorless camera is a great option. On the other hand, DSLR cameras are great for low-light conditions and are great for anything from portraits to landscapes. DSLRs are also cheaper and have much better battery life, as well as having a decade or two worth of lenses to choose from.
