New Fujifilm X-T1 Interchangeable Lens Camera Shipping Next Month

Fujifilm today announced the X-T1, the latest addition to the X-Series range.

The X-T1 features evolved SLR-style handling, mechanical dials and weather-resistance (when paired with a weather resistant X mount lens), together with all the features of an X-Series camera, such as compact size, mobility and high-speed performance.

What?s more, its newly developed electronic viewfinder (0.77x magnification) is almost indistinguishable from an optical viewfinder thanks to its fast display speed (0.005 sec lag time, 2.36m dot resolution OLED).

The camera is powered by the EXR Processor II and its 16.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor. The X-Trans CMOS II sensor phase detection AF built in so a response of just 0.08 seconds is achieved. The EXR Processor II allows a 0.5 second start-up time, 0.05 second shutter time lag and a 0.5 second shooting interval. Image quality is further enhanced by the inclusion of a Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) for interchangeable lens cameras. This echnology has been made possible by the integrated development of lens, sensor and processor and is based on the optical performance and characteristics of each individual lens to maximise its resolving power.

It also allows up to 8 frames per second with tracking AF and is the first model to be compatible with SDXC UHS-II format memory cards.

Fujifilm is launching three weather-resistant zoom lenses to complement the X-T1 camera, these will all be available during 2014, with the XF18-135mm launching in June. The three lenses are the XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R OIS WR, XF16-55mmF2.8 R OIS WR and the XF50-140mmF2.8 R OIS WR.

Shipping in February, Fujifilm is selling the X-T1 for $1,300 for the body alone, or $1,700 when combined with an 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens.
