We're pleased to let you know that we are carrying Fujifilm's X-T1, the latest addition to the award-winning X-Series cameras. A premium interchangeable lens camera, 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 benefits of an X-Series camera, such as compact size, excellent mobility and high-speed performance. What's more, its newly developed electronic viewfinder is almost indistinguishable from an optical viewfinder thanks to its ultra fast display.Combining a unique wide-angle view, along with the world's highest magnification (0.77x) for a digital camera*, the X-T1's electronic viewfinder provides a truly immersive shooting experience. But it's the viewfinder's display speed that really sets it apart; with a lag-time of just 0.005sec — that's one tenth the speed of conventional digital cameras — you'll feel a total connection to the subjects you're shooting.
With its 2.36m dot resolution OLED display producing a crisply detailed view of whatever you're shooting, the X-T1's EVF lets you immerse yourself in the action, just as you'd feel with a traditional optical viewfinder.
But while the vision it creates is the smoothest and purest yet on a digital camera, the X-T1's viewfinder also packs in breakthrough technologies to help your photography. The viewfinder's newly designed Graphic User Interface provides a fresh shooting experience with clear details and a comfortable at-a-glance view of your settings.
It's four display modes offer a shooting experience impossible with an optical viewfinder:
- 1.“FULL” mode takes full advantage of the high magnification ratio of the X-T1's viewfinder to give an unrivalled view of the scene
- 2.“NORMAL” provides an optimum view, including shooting settings
- 3.“DUAL” is specially designed for manual focusing with a clever split view. Where the regular view and manual focus area can be simultaneously checked (with Digital Split Image™ or Focus Peak Highlight)*4
- 4.For a “PORTRAIT” view in “NORMAL” and “FULL” modes, the interface automatically rotates when the camera is held vertically
The perfect view needs autofocus to match and with its EXR Processor II and X-Trans™ CMOS II sensor*4, the X-T1 delivers. The new X-Trans™ sensor has phase detection AF built in so a world-beating response of just 0.08 seconds is achieved and the EXR Processor II allows a super-fast 0.5 second start-up time, 0.05 second shutter time lag and a 0.5 second shooting interval. It also allows up to 8 frames per second*8with tracking AF and is the first-ever model to be compatible with SDXC UHS-II format memory cards, so the data writing speed in continuous mode increases to about twice that of a conventional card.And as good as it looks and handles, the X-T1 is also tough enough to take on almost any shooting assignment. Thanks to approximately 80 points of weather sealing, the camera body is dust-resistant and water-resistant, giving it plenty of protection from dirt and moisture. With it offering freeze resistance to -10°C, it enables full-fledged field photography without worrying about the weather or the season and the LCD features tempered glass for additional outdoor protection.
With five mechanical dials on the top-plate, two command dials on the front and rear and six fully customizable function buttons, the X-T1 feels and functions like a pro camera. The X-T1's X-Trans II sensor controls moiré and false color generation by using an original color filter array with a highly randomized pixel arrangement. This removes the need for an Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) that degrades resolution.The EXR Processor II corrects even fractional blurring at the edges of the lens, as well as diffraction blur caused when narrowing the aperture. Image quality is further enhanced by the inclusion of a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) for interchangeable lens cameras. This advanced technology 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 maximize its resolving power.
This is a camera that has been very well received since it's release date. Check out this exhaustive review by imagingresource.com. Come in & ask to take a look at the X-T1 and other X-series cameras by Fujifilm. The kit with an 18-55mm zoom is $1699.
