Fujifilm is expected to announce their new camera, the Fujifilm X-T1 on the 28th of February, at least that’s what their teaser seemed to suggest. It wasn’t long after that photos of the camera made their way online and now thanks to new leaks, additional specifications of the X-T1 have been revealed. What we know so far about the camera is that it will pack a 16MP APS-C X-Trans sensor II. It is also rumored to sport a larger EVF, 8fps shooting with AF tracking, a weather-sealed body that would make it ideal for outdoors photography, a tilt screen LCD, and will come with WiFi support to allow it to make wireless transfers from the camera to other devices, such as mobile or onto laptops.
Well according to the new rumors, the X-T1 is said to feature a single card slot, as opposed to dual card slots that was previously speculated. It is also expected to be around the same size as the X-E2 and will not be smaller. There will be manual focus features available in the EVF, and will cost $1,300 for the body-only, $1,800 for the kit price, although it seems that there will also be a new hotshoe flash that will be included. Take all of this with a grain of salt for now, but given that we’re only a day away from the 28th of January which is when the announcement is taking place, we guess we won’t have to wait too long to see if the rumors pan out, so check back with us then for the details!
