As expected the new Fujifilm X-Mount camera teased last week has been unveiled today in the form of the new Fujifilm X-T1. Which is the latest Fujifilm compact interchangeable-lens camera and is packed with new features for users to enjoy including a weather-resistant casing.
The new Fujifilm X-T1 camera launching today will start shipping next month for around $1,300 for the body only or $1,700 with an 18-55mm f/2.8-4 kit lens and supports the latest SDXC UHS-II format.
The Fujifilm X-T1 camera is equipped with a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, supported by a large 2.36 M-dot OLED viewfinder for users to enjoy. The weather-resistant casing when paired with a weather-resistant lens protects the system from water and dust and is capable of being used at temperatures measuring -10 degrees Celsius.
Three weather-resistant lenses will be available for the Fujifilm X-T1 camera at launch and include the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, a 16-55mm f/2.8 and a 50-140mm f/2.8 although no information on pricing has been announced by Fujifilm as yet for them.
Fujifilm has also equipped their new Fujifilm X-T1 camera with an 8 frames-per-second burst mode that includes tracking autofocus, together with a new user interface and a EXR Processor II that provides the camera with an impressive 0.5 second start-up time and shooting interval with a 0.05 second shutter lag to make sure you never miss those important shots.
