Fujifilm launches X-T1 interchangeable lens camera with the world’s fastest real time viewfinder

Tokyo, Jan 29: Fujifilm has announced its latest X-T1, an award-winning XSeries range of camera.

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 speed.

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.

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 degree 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.

The optional vertical battery grip (VG-XT1) has the same hardy structure, so when twinned with the XT-1 body, it’s completely secured against the elements.

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. (ANI)
