    Fujifilm X-T1 weather sealed camera announced

    As expected, Fujifilm has unveiled their new X-series mirrorless camera (?flagship model) few hours earlier today in Japan, as their 80th anniverssary product. Its been a widely discussed camera model recently with frequent leaks of images and specifications (Many real images had been out along with about 80% of official specifications) and highly epxectant among fuji fans. Its the first full water and dust resistant X-series model from fujifilm. It sports a different look to previous models like X-E1 & 2, X-M1 or X-Pro1 etc, by adding a proper hadgrip (additional grip is announced too, if somebody is looking for more size on grip), EVF bump at top and maintaining the whole body retro-style and few extra buttons on top like ISO sensitivity dial, video mode etc. Overall, its a highyl attractive slim retro-mini DSLR style camera which offers an array of features for both serious amatuers and professionals.

    With sensor and processor hardware features are a copy from previous X-Series model (X-E2), that is 16MP APS-C CMOS X-Trans II sensor and EXR image processor II, X-T1 brings in a number of new features including water and dust sealed body with freezeproof upto 10 degree (weather sealed lenses will be coming later this year- currently to shoot with non-weather sealed lenses), highest magnification wide-angle 2.36m dot OLED EVF available on any camera (0.77x) with just 0.005 second lag-time etc. Another feature to note is the support for the fastest memory card to date, the SDXC UHS-class II( it can write upto 312mb/s of data, but i dont know whats the speed of X-T1- surely you dont need that max-speed here) which can substantially reduce the buffer there by next-shot gap. Currently not many UHS-II cards available today and they will be more expensive (looling at about 4-5 times the price of UHS-I) to buy. With X-T1, Fuji has improved all the image capturing response parameters which are, startup time of just 0.5 second, fastest AF with just 0.008 second with continous shooting of 8 fps(phase detection), 0.05 second shutter lag and shooting interval of 0.5 second with the help of EXR image processor II etc. With WiFi function on board, X-T1 supports remote shooting for users via Fujifilm using smartphones, currently there in iTune store (android version will be updated soon hopefully) and to transfer images.
