About Fujifilm X-T1

Fujifilm X-T1

The Fujifilm X-T1 may look a lot like a classic film SLR camera, but it is, in fact, a state-of-the-art digital photography powerhouse. The latest and most advanced addition to the Fujifilm X lineup of mirrorless interchangeable-lens compact digital cameras, the X-T1 boasts an ultra-high-resolution Electronic Viewfinder in what looks like an optical viewfinder housing, and the dials on the top of the camera give you quick access to shutter speed, exposure compensation and ISO controls without the need to burrow through menus.

Aperture is controlled via an aperture ring on the lens, just like the good old days. But for the digital age there is an SD card slot, and the camera is capable of shooting RAW and JPEG images. At a resolution of 2.36 Milion dots, the EVF should give a fine enough image to satisfy many of those who were expecting an optical finder. The Fujfilm X-T1 features an eye-level electronic viewfinder, a 16MP APS X-Trans II sensor, a weather-sealed body, and knobs and buttons controlling its basic exposure functions. The camera simultaneously looks retro while being completely functional and ergonomically laid out. The X-T1 is targeted at both advanced amateurs and professional photographers who need to travel light.

Rugged features:
• 75 points of weather sealing
• Splashproof
• Dust resistant
• Freezeproof to -14 degrees F
• Tempered Glass LCD Monitor

The camera is said to be fast, with a shutter lag time that's claimed to be 0.05 seconds, which is for all intents and purposes, instantaneous. Startup time is half a second. The Fujifilm X-T1 is the first X-series camera to have an optional vertical grip. The grip, along with the camera's magnesium alloy body and several soon-to-be-announced lenses, are ruggedized against inclement weather. (The current 18-55mm kit lens, however, is not weather-resistant.)?

The Fujifilm X-T1 offers 10 film simulation modes that mimic classic Fujifilm emulsions such as Provia, Velvia, Astia, and others. Focus highlight peaking, digital split image, and electronic level, multiple exposure, release and focus priority settings, and dynamic range are among its many photography functions.

Wonderful camera

After using Nikons for 25 years. It took me 2 days to get use to the EVF. Now that I understand how it works. I really like it. Camera ergonomics. Has the handling qualities of the OM-1 and Leica M3. I paired the camera to the 55-200mm Lens. Only faults so far, battery life (get a spare). Wi-Fi to PC. Will not connect. Cannot change in camera password for designated PC.

Makes the wonderful X-T1 even better

By

from Trevor, WI  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

The X-T1 is an amazing camera. The only issue was the grip for me. I added a Lensmate thumb grip to the hotshoe, it helped, but still felt like I needed more. The X-T1 battery grip might add something for portraits, but I got this camera to NOT be my Canon 5D Mark III. Don't want to add too much to it. That said, this grip did not add much weight and made it PERFECT for what I needed. I wear a 2XL glove. Hands big enough to palm a basketball with ease. Adding this large grip is just what the doctor ordered. The other bonus is the arca swiss plate built in. Worth the cost to me. Fujifilm is making some great products.

Nice Results: Poor Battery Performance

By

from Arlington, TX

The camera performance is very nice and it is a good size to carry about. I took a short trip which was the first time that I had an opportunity to really use it for an extended period. I liked the results. I didn't have grand expectations regarding the battery performance to begin with, but I was surprised and disappointed that I got only 75 shots on the first battery. I was using the view finder rather than back screen to compose shots, no video, no wireless, turned off everything that was optional. This was a laid back, casual shooting day not a sporting event. Replaced the battery with a fresh, charged one and had the same experience with getting a total of 149 shots on two batteries over the span of two days. I had hopes that the X-T1 would be lighter, smaller camera to use for travel but the battery performance makes it a brick. Disappointing.

One Awesome Camera!

By

from San Jose, CA

The image quality from the X-T1 is awesome. You rarely need to shoot RAW because the jpegs are so good. I compared the IQ against my Nikon D800, and the D800 only has a slight edge in terms of color and sharpness. With little post-processing, the X-T1 can produce excellent pictures that are compatible to the D800. If I have one complaint, it would the fact that EVF doesn't work well with polarized sun shades. In terms of portability, practical features, and built quality, the X-T1 is ahead of the D800 by decades. If IQ and portability are important to you, the X-T1 is a no brainer.

Excellent camera, but broken rear dial

By

from Scotts Valley, CA

Upgraded from X-E1. The X-T1 has all the features I wanted when I bought the X-E1 (e.g. larger EVF with low-lag, flip up/down LCD, faster & predictive AF, WiFi control, intervalometer, etc.). It looks good, too, but I still prefer the "rangefinder" style of the X-E1 over the X-T1's SLR style. I kept the X-E1 as a backup body, and it turned out to be a good thing. The rear command dial on the X-T1 never worked (known problem that some early cameras seem to have), so I had to return it to Adorama. Now I've been waiting a long time for the backordered replacement to ship. I guess they put me at the back of the queue, even though they've kept my money. I'm calling them today to see if they can move me to the front of the queue. Before returning the X-T1 for replacement, I tried shooting runners at a track & field meet. The predictive AF sort of works, but still a lot of blurry photos. (Since then, I've heard putting it in high performance mode helps, but I haven't been able to try that yet.) The other issue is that at 8fps, the EVF is mostly black most of the time, so it is difficult to keep the moving subject centered in the frame. When the subject gets out of the center, the camera is quick to focus on the distant background, resulting in a blurry subject. I think slowing down to 3.5fps and setting focus priority might work out better for tracking while panning. Practice, too, of course.

Best Fuji Yet

By

from Fredericksburg, VA

There are plenty of in-depth online reviews of this camera, so I won't go into that level of detail. I own an X100 and an X-Pro1 and I am loving this new X-T1. The EVF is very good. I originally bought the Pro1 because I wanted an OVF but with the 18-55 lens, I found myself using the EVF most of the time anyway. I had a hard time seeing the EVF. I needed a diopter lens to see clearly, but I had to choose between seeing data like f-stop & shutter speed, or the scene I was photographing. A single diopter didn't allow me to see both clearly. No such problem on the T1. The EVF on the T1 is considerably brighter and easier to see in the sunlight. The T1 just seems to feel better in my hand than the Pro1. And I appreciate having so many external controls. One aspect I like very much is that you can see how the exposure compensation dial will affect the exposure interactively when you're in P, A, or S mode. If you're in M mode, you can also see how changing the shutter speed or aperture will affect the exposure. This is a great general walkabout camera and also very good for events. In my opinion, it is best suited to users who understand how to use the external controls effectively and shoot deliberately.

So far, so great!!!

By

from Brooklyn, NY

It's all there with this camera. Total control over everything. I love everything about it and the whole Fuji x mount system. The images are superb. Coupled with the 56mm F1.2 it excels. The one and only complaint I do have is the function buttons in the back surrounding the menu button are way too small and hard to push. Luckily there's a whole bunch of buttons that you can customize. Amazing product. I own the X100S as well and talk about the dynamic duo.
