Fujifilm has been teasing their upcoming camera, the Fujifilm X-T1 for a while now and sure enough today, on the 28th of January, the camera manufacturer has officially taken the wraps off their latest product offering. Based on the official press release by Fujifilm, the X-T1 appears to be more or less the same as what the rumors have suggested, and the official photos also corroborate earlier leaks as well, a design which Fujifilm likes to call “traditional” with dials and buttons placed where professional photographers might have come to expect, versus more modern cameras where the dials and buttons could be laid out differently.
In terms of specs, the X-T1 will feature a 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor which can also be found in the X-E2 camera. It will also come with a built-in 2.36M dot EVF which while similar to the X-E2 as well, will boast a higher 0.77x equivalent magnification and a lag time of 0.005 seconds, which is admittedly pretty impressive. The camera will also boast a 3” LCD display that can be tilted, allowing photographers to get some pretty interesting angles, built-in WiFi with remote capture, and a weather-sealed body that the company claims will offer protection from dust and moisture, and will also be able to withstand freezing temperatures as low as -10C.
Fujifilm expects the X-T1 to be made available in the UK come mid-end February 2014 and will be priced at £1099.99, but those who want it with the kit lens can expect to pay £1449.99. For more information you can check out the promotional video above or hit up Fujifilm’s website for the details.
