The Fujifilm X-T1 is a professional quality mirrorless camera which rivals a number of DSLR bodies in terms of features and performance. It offers the image quality, performance and durability expected from professional photographers, all in a light and compact body. Due to the X-Trans CMOS II sensor architecture that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filterLOW-PASS FILTERAlso called an Anti-aliasing Filter.
A filter made of a birefringent material, such as Lithium Niobate, placed infront of the image sensor. The filter's purpose is to reduce moiré, caused by large scale interference between fine textures and patterns in the image and the fine matrix pattern of the image sensor. The low-pass filter works by scattering any optical point in the image into a cluster of four, and effectively causing micro blur and thus removing the aliasing and consequently the moiré pattern. Some high-end cameras are deliberately designed without any low-pass filter in order to maximize the sharpness of the captured image - possible moiré is the trade-off. (OLPF) and integrates FUJFILM's originally developed color filter array, the FUJIFILM X-T1 reproduces scenes with resolution and clarity rivaling a larger sensor. The FUJIFILM X-T1's large APS-C-sized 16 megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. X-Trans CMOS II sensor features 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
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 lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. and apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur., 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.
Intelligent Hybrid Auto Focus
World's fastest AF speed of 0.08 sec. (as in January 2014) achieved via the integration of phase detection pixels into the advanced sensor. High-speed responses from the on-sensor phase detection AF system. Accurate focusing in dark scenes that only contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). AF can deliver. The FUJIFILM X-T1 has both, plus Intelligent Hybrid AF for automatic switching to the optimal focusing system for the scene and conditions. A newly developed algorithm improves AF accuracy when shooting low-contrast subjects and dark scenes. The evolved AF system of the FUJIFILM X-T1 brings your subject into sharp focus so quickly that priceless moments will never escape your lens.
A remarkable leap in high sensitivity — maximum ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)of 51,200
To broaden photographic opportunities in low-light scenes, you'll find an expanded sensitivity range, which now extends to an impressive ISO 51200. To combat noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. at these ultra-high sensitivity settings, the arrangement of components and circuits around the sensor has been redesigned, keeping blacks black, with minimal grain and no colour casts.
EXR Processor II — Double the processing speed of the previous generation
The adoption of the dual CPU and improved computational performance has doubled the processing speed when compared with the previous generation processor, the start-up time has also improved to only approx. 0.5 sec. Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.5 sec.(in manual focus mode) and shutter time lag to 0.05 sec. Faster response means more confidence in capturing the moment, and the FUJIFILM X-T1 delivers it. Using phase-detection autofocus, combined with high-speed subject predictive, the AF accurately follows your subject through the frame, even at the highest continuous shooting speed of 8.0 frames/sec. The XT-1 is compatible with UHS-II technology and with a UHS-II SD memory card installed, the data writing speed in continuous mode increases to about twice that of a conventional card.
Time-lapse photography - Interval timer function
Set the starting time, the shooting interval (1 sec. to 24 hr.) and finally the number of frames (1 - 999), and the FUJIFILM X-T1 does the rest, allowing you to discover the unique world of time-lapse photography.
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.
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.
Wide selection of Auto Bracketing functions
With a choice of 5 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range, Film Simulation and White Balance), you are ready to explore a whole world of photographic effects with just one press of the shutter.
White Balance Bracketing
Just fire the shutter once and capture the same scene at your selected white balance setting plus one frame at a warmer and another at a cooler color temperature. White Balance bracketing can be set in ±1, ±2 and ±3 steps.
Dynamic Range Bracketing
Capture 3 exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image.s of the same scene with high-speed continuous shooting, each at a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% & 400%).
Film Simulation Bracketing
Just press the shutter once and get three images of the scene based on a single exposure, each image with a different Film Simulation effect that you have selected.
One press of the shutter captures 3 shots of the same scene at different exposures. AE bracketing can be set in ±1/3, ±2/3 or ±1 EV steps.
ISO Sensitivity Bracketing
Based on a single exposure, the scene is automatically reproduced as three images, each with a different ISO sensitivity, but without altering the shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time.
For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. and aperture. This lets you capture the moment with varying degrees of brightness, but leaves depth-of-field and shutter effects unchanged. ISO Sensitivity Bracketing is possible in ±1/3, ±2/3 or ±1 EV steps.
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. When used in conjunction with the XF18-135mm and Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1, which have the same sealing structure as the camera body, the camera offers a reliable system for your field photography in damp conditions.
Durable full magnesium body, milled aluminium dials and reinforced LCD screen
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 aluminium 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.
High-speed 1/32000sec electronic shutter
When using lenses with very wide apertures, like the Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R and the XF56mmF1.2 R, it's possible to acheive a very shallow depth-of-field and beautiful bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə]
Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh. along with a sharp subject. However, when using these wide apertures in very bright light, like on a sunny day, shutter speed can limit shooting options and mean the widest aperture settings are unavailable. To fix this, the FUJIFILM X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition now includes an electronic shutter mode with a top speed of 1/32000 sec, meaning you can use wide apertures more easily than ever before.
Completely silent shutter
The optical viewfinder in a DSLR requires a mirror box that makes noise as it moves up and down during an exposure, but the FUJIFILM X-T1 has a special design with no such mechanism, so shooting is quieter. To complement this, even the sound of the shutter opening and closing can now be removed thanks to the new electronic shutter mode. No noise at the beginning or end of the exposure makes the camera incredibly useful for subjects like nature, weddings, or live events when users need to remain quiet.
Adaptable Live View Mode is ready for anything
One of the great benefits of an electronic viewfinder is that what you see is what you get'; the final image is displayed in real-time so any Film Simulation modes or other effects can be checked while shooting. But users sometimes need to see colors close to how they're viewed with an optical finder, or to focus on shadow detail, which some high-contrast effects block out. To aid this, the Natural Live View function has been added and, when "PREVIEW PIC. EFFECT" is turned Off in the menu, an image close to the naked eye is displayed during live view.
11 adaptable vividness levels guarantee the perfect view
Whether it's through a viewfinder, on an LCD screen, or with the naked eye, we all see color differently, so to ensure that users get the perfect view, vividness of the image displayed can now be adjusted through 11 levels, from -5 to +5. This function can be controlled separately for the electronic viewfinder and the LCD monitor, so it remains totally effective no matter what the lighting conditions or shooting style.
