Product Description

Color: Black | Style: with XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 Lens

From the Manufacturer

A premium interchangeable lens camera, the X-T1 features evolved SLR-style handling, mechanical dials and weather-resistanceMulti Mode Viewfinder (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.

Awaken your senses as never before with the world's largest and fastest Multi Mode Viewfinder.

With its high-resolution 2.36million dot OLED display, and the world's highest magnification ratio of 0.77x*, the FUJIFILM X-T1's Real Time Viewfinder allows a true connection to your subject and a purely immersive shooting experience. The viewfinder achieves

Full Mode

a wide angle of view of 31°, and with the display's lag time of just 0.005 sec — less that a tenth of conventional cameras — you'll immediately see any changes to your composition, keeping you in touch with whatever you're shooting.

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.

"FULL" mode takes full advantage of the high magnification ratio of the FUJIFILM X-T1's viewfinder to give an unrivalled view of the scene. "NORMAL" provides an optimum view, including shooting settings and "DUAL" is specially designed for manual focusing with a clever split view. In the "NORMAL" and "FULL" modes, the view automatically rotates for a vertical orientation when the camera is held vertically.

FULL

Taking full advantage of the high magnification ratio of the FUJIFILM X-T1's viewfinder, "FULL" mode gives you the full field of vision available. Any obstruction of the view is avoided by placing shooting information at the top and bottom of the display screen. Ideal for composing expansive landscapes, Wide is also great when manually focusing portraits and other subjects, allowing you to easily determine the perfect focus.

NORMAL

When shooting with Autofocus, the "NORMAL" mode lets you concentrate on framing the shot while keeping you aware of how the shooting conditions are changing, making it the perfect setting for sports and action photography.

VERTICAL

Hold the camera vertically and the information display automatically and smoothly rotates so it's ideally positioned for easy reading. Without taking your eye from the viewfinder, you can also check your images in vertical orientation for a truly seamless shooting experience.

DUAL

In the viewfinder's "DUAL" mode, you can enjoy a view of the subject unlike anything seen through a traditional optical viewfinder. In Manual Focus, Dual cleverly displays a split screen that lets you see both a regular view of the scene, as well as the Focus Assist view (Focus Peaking and Digital Split Image Focus) at the same time, so focusing is easy and precise.

You can even customize the shooting information that's displayed in the viewfinder for easy confirmation of just about any setting you might need — it all helps to free you up, keep your eye on the action and concentrate on the essential pleasure of photography.

APS-C-sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor

Maximizing the power of APS-C-sized X-Trans CMOS II sensor

The FUJIFILM X-T1's large APS-C-sized 16M X-Trans CMOS II sensor features an original color filter array that minimizes moire and color aberrations, and also includes embedded phase detection pixels. The result is image quality that rivals a full-frame sensor. X-Trans CMOS II sensor incorporates an original color filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). These filters are used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The X-Trans CMOS II sensor array lets the sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens, achieving an unprecedented level of resolution.

Lens Modulation Optimizer technology brings out the full potential of the XF lens.

Color reproduction that's second to none

The advanced Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) technology in the FUJIFILM X-T1 was made possible by the integrated development of the lens, sensor and processor. For each mounted lens, LMO high-precision processing of the lens focal length and aperture, as well as data from the screen center to the edges, corrects diffraction blur when shooting with a stopped down aperture and compensates for the slight blurring in the lens periphery. The result is edge-to-edge image quality with incredible sharpness and a sense of dimensional reality.

80 years of photo film research adds up to color reproduction that's second to none.

Over decades of film manufacture Fujifilm has perfected the skill of color reproduction and it lives on in the FUJIFILM X-T1. Pleasing skin tones, natural blues and greens, and the ability to perfectly record the diversity of white balance conditions throughout the day are all taken in the camera's stride, and it also boasts a wide dynamic range for better reproduction of detail.

Weather Resistant

Film Simulation -- adding impact and depth to photos.

With Film Simulation, you can choose from classic Fujifilm photo styles, and give your pictures varied color and tone to suit the subject, just like pros did with film. There's standard PROVIA, vivid Velvia, and ASTIA with its true-to-life skin tones; PRO Neg.Std and PRO Neg.Hi, which are portrait modes based on professional color negative film; and Monochrome expression with three different filter effects as well as Sepia.

Weather Resistant - dust-resistant, water-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation.

The weather resistant structure is sealed in approximately 80 places and is both dust and water resistant. Additionally it is designed to cope in temperatures as low as -10°C allowing field photography without the typical worries about the weather, season or general shooting environment.

Durable full magnesium body, milled aluminum dials and reinforced LCD screen

Analog dial operation connects your vision and the camera

Strong doesn't have to mean heavy and with its body made from die-cast magnesium, the FUJIFILM X-T1's chassis is not only sturdy and durable, but also compact and lightweight. The exposure compensation, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity dials are all precision milled from aluminum and deliver a reassuring click at every notched setting, while reinforced glass is used for added protection of the LCD screen. In every detail, the high-performance FUJIFILM X-T1 is designed to be tough and reliable.


No matter whether the power is on or off, analog dial operation connects your vision and the camera.


The FUJIFILM X-T1 brings you back to the very essence of photography "the control of light" and it comes via the manual shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity and metering dials. Including the drive dial, all five dials are intuitively arranged on the camera's top-plate and the use of double-deck dials both simplifies operation and streamlines the elegant design.

Style Name: Body OnlyColor Name: Black
Just fantastic. If you're looking at this camera then you've probably already done tons of research, so I'll just leave bullet points. I've only had this for 4 days, but have spent about 35 hours with it by now and feel like I know it pretty well!

Pros -

- It's TINY. I was expecting it to be bigger, but it's barely bigger than the X-E1/X-E2.
- Fits in the hand beautifully. Fuji have put a rubber "nub" on the rear top right corner, and it's perfect for one-handed shooting.
- The knobs on top are great, everything is intuitive. I actually bought the Nikon Df in December and returned it after a couple of weeks, it never became intuitive. The only thing I would change is not having to press the button in when changing ISO every time.
- Rear screen is big and bright. Seen many comments saying it should be a touchscreen (it shouldn't) and it should flip sideways (it shouldn't) - touchscreens should stay far, far away from cameras!
- Build quality is ace. Feels rock solid, but weighs practically nothing.
- SD card slot is on the side, helps with not having to take off tripod to change card.
- OHMYGOODNESS THE EVF! I've never been a fan of EVFs, but this is incredible. The first day I shot with it, I loved it, but I knew I needed to wait until shooting at night until I got the full picture - it was fantastic. Helped me see things in the dark that I never would with an OVF, it's going to change the way I shoot night photography. Being able to see exposure and WB changes in the viewfinder before shooting is fantastic - and the auto-rotation when shooting vertical is genius.

Cons -

- the buttons are just a tiny bit TOO indented on the rear of the camera.

Style Name: with XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 LensColor Name: Black
Having had many a pro DSLR camera body and lenses as well as a complete Micro 4/3rd system over the last 5 years (EM1 Olympus) I fully understand the compromises that can come from a "non" DSLR system. Slower focus, lessor color depth, slower shooting ability, poorer build quality, and the list goes on
Now having said that I sold ALL my camera gear off in the anticipation of this camera and lens system. I researched till I could no longer find a competent review and photo taken with this amazing X-Trans sensor. After a week of ownership I can say without hesitation THIS is the camera that will set some benchmarks after time. The Sony A7's get their accolades, but the Fuji's present something "different" intrinsic to the photographic picture. A nearly 3D look to their files that can hardly be explained. Their colors are simply yummy and are so pleasant to see. The files are also virtually devoid of ANY sensor noise or artifacts. Sony has noise reduction built in and compression you can NOT turn off. The Micro 4/3rd bodies unfortunately possess noise at ALL ISO sensitivities. This camera I can shoot right up to ISO6400 and see nearly NOTHING noise oriented 100% on screen. There is NO noise or artifacts in the blue sky shots.

Moving along to the other aspects that are amazing. This camera is fully capable of 8fps while focusing continuously. And frankly having owned a venerable D700 full frame Nikon, this camera will keep right up with it in the tracking arena. Even just spur of the moment mashing of the shutter button will render you an IN focus shot, so being spontaneous is rewarded. The build is rock solid and the switches are very tight and are not likely to be mistakenly moved.

Style Name: Body OnlyColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
I wont bother with image quality, it is the same as the XE-2, basically the same as the Xpro-1. This is a hit or miss with some people, i wont waste any time as this is not what makes this camera unique in Fuji's lineup. Read any Fuji X-trans review for image quality. All I will say is it is top notch.

I have been shooting with the XE-1 and OMD EM-5 for the last year or so. I primarily do timelapse photography which is comparable to landscape photography, also studio plant timelapse and macro work. General photography is a hobby of mine. I am not a professional photographer but do use photography professionally, if that makes sense. I moved from Nikon pro gear to mirrorless cameras to save weight for extended hikes to remote areas.

the XT-1 is about as perfect as a camera (for my purposes) as i have ever found, it certainly sets a new bench mark.

I doubt I will be using my XE-1 much at all for general photography. I have had this love hate relationship between the OMD and the XE-1. I liked the output of the XE-1, but found the AF to be terrible, the EVF was decent, but nothing to scream about. Everything the XE-1 did poorly the OMD excelled at, everything the OMD fell short in the XE-1 excelled in.

The XT-1 is so much faster in operation than the XE-1. the AF is very fast, it seems to be very accurate. Compared to any other mirrorless camera on the market the AF-C tracks like a bloodhound. Which to say it is about as good as a prosumer level DSLR. The viewfinder is not only usable, it is darn good.

I think the XT-1's EVF is probably the first one that really starts to threaten the OVF. Looking through this one, I would suspect the EVF is only 2 maybe 3 small generations to outperforming an OVF in every way imaginable.
