While going through technology reviews in various magazines and publications on cameras, it becomes evident that Fujifilm has a high-end, mirror less and fully-loaded camera in the market by way of its Fujifilm X-T1. The camera is weather-proof and comes with an SLR-type body as also manual control and battery grip which is optional. All reviews on technology used in the Fujifilm X-T1 camera show that the gadget is somewhat like the recent Fujifilm X-E2 model. Its features include:
- CMOS II sensor (X-Trans) having a capacity of 16 megapixel and the sensor also has a phase detection facilities on the chip.
- EXR Processor 2
- Wi-Fi with facility for HD video
- Fixed and tilting LCD
- Optimum burst rate as also focus tracking at maximum speed
- Port for flash sync.
The Fujifilm X-T1 also has a large electronic viewfinder with excellent resolution making it a real pleasure to operate. There are also facilities for dual view given its large EVF whereby, the full scene is shown plus its magnified view by way of a smaller window on one side. Focus can also be peaked or the image digitally split, when it comes to manual focusing. There is also the added advantage of view by portrait orientation, which shows the settings of the camera at the image’s bottom and top, when the camera rotates to ninety degrees.
Another notable feature of the Fujifilm X-T1is, its tough all weather-resistant body. It has seventy five seals making it also dust, freeze and water-proof. It can even survive temperatures of up to -10°C. Its dials on the top make it easy to adjust shutter speed, ISO and exposure manually. There are also switches for metering and the drive mode.
Fuji claims that the X-T1 comes with ‘world’s quickest autofocus of 0.08 seconds. It can shoot using 8 fps along with subject tracking, the best so far that any Fuji X-series camera has offered so far. Moreover, it’s the first also to support SD cards of the UHS-II type, which are ultra-fast.
One feature, however, that is missing in Fuji X-T1 is a built-in flash. Rather, it has an external flash having an optimal length of eight meters at a speed of ISO 100. It, however, has a port for flash sync and a hot shoe for attachment of studio strobes. The length of its F2.8-4.0 lens is 18-55mm lens and the camera colour is black.
