Product Shots of the Soon-to-be-Released Fuji X-T1 Make Their Way Online

xt1leak_1

Most of the specs and information on the recently-teased Fuji X-T1 that will make landfall on January 28th have already leaked, but the final piece of the rumor puzzle fell into place today when Digicameinfo published the official-looking product shots you see here.

For those of you who haven’t read our previous coverage on the upcoming X-series camera, when it arrives officially next week it will supposedly do so with a 16MP APS-C X-Trans II sensor, 2.36M-dot OLED EVF with only 0.005s lag, 8fps continuous shooting with AF tracking, 0.08s AF speed and built-in WiFi.

Here’s a look at the camera from the top and back:

The price was originally rumored to be around $1,800 (converted from Japanese Yen pricing), but since we reported on those numbers, Fuji Rumors has been told that the body-only might only cost ~$1,300 in the US.

Keep in mind though, price is the finickiest part of the rumor guessing game these sites play, so take that number with a grain of salt. Better to expect $1,800 and be pleasantly surprised than the other way around.

    Looks sharp and somewhat durable. The LED on the crest of the thumb rest is great imo. No more blinking in your eyeball but still visible in your peripheral when you want to see it.

    Delete/Play buttons are the only buttons on the left, as they should be.

    Knobs and dials are beginning to lose their appeal with me though.

    Also Fuji can you please go full frame already?

    rumor: X-T1 is a FF

  • janefondaz

    I have a pretty good source.

  • http://www.aluzinando.com Fernando Callo

    I like Fuji because it posts the images and not like Nikon which created a lot of expectation with the DF and at the end was a completely flop.

  • scootaloo

    wrong hanoijane

    i so hope this thing will track focus.

  • aher

    Df… with the best sensor FF out here? yea you make it right

  • http://reciprocity-failure.blogspot.com/ Stan B.

    Is there some technical reason concerning the EVF that its faux pentaprism housing must be flat in the front (as in the Sony)? Really puts a damper on what would otherwise be very pleasing aesthetics…

  • Jeff Ladrillono

    This camera is what the Nikon Df wants to be.

  • http://sonaten.se/ Jonas N

    No.

  • northlander30

    Never really been a fan of anything Fuji. White balance problems with earlier models. I also don’t like the fact of all the important modes being in dial form, I suppose some people would like that. Just looks like too much fiddling has to be done to get the correct ISO and exposure. Mind you I am sure it wouldn’t take much time to get used to the dials especially if there is a display inside the viewfinder. $1,300.00 dollars just for the body? I would throw in a few extra bucks and go with the Canon 70D that way at least I can use the Canon lenses I already have with my T3i,

  • pedanticus

    Not if it’s using the X-mount

  • Ryan Moore

    Yea but keep in mind you’re getting image quality similar to that of a $3,000+ Canon 5D mark iii for a mere $1,300. White balance problems mean nothing if you’re shooting in raw and all of the dials also have the auto option so you don’t have to change them constantly if you don’t want to. I still wouldn’t replace my DSLR setup for any sort of fast-paced paid work, but these fuji cameras are pretty incredible overall.

  • Nicklaus Deyring

    Pretty…. but so expensive for a cropped sensor?

  • Jake Brown

    For people complaining about the cropped sensor, you haven’t shot with the X-Trans sensor. It’s incredible. I have a 5Diii and a Fuji x100s, the Fuji takes photos that compare with the 5D.

  • Nathan Blaney

    I totally agree.

  • Nathan Blaney

    Looks like a fantastic tool, but I’m really hoping we see another camera with similar specs but in a X-Pro type body….

  • northlander30

    I would have to see the photo quality first hand before I would ever make a decision as to buy one or not. $1,300.00 bucks is still up there not to mention what the lenses will cost. I am guessing between 600- 1,800 depending on focal length and aperture and of course does it have a standard motor or silent motor. I figured the filter would be larger than a 58mm though. There is nothing wrong with 58mm most of my lenses are 58’s. The white balance problem was with their higher end point and shoot cameras. I don’t have light room or any other photo software only the software that came with my Canon. So I usually don’t shoot in RAW anyway. I have in the past, I only consider myself a hobbyist photographer.

  • Paul

    …because it’s not a pentaprism.

  • http://reciprocity-failure.blogspot.com/ Stan B.

    A) that really doesn’t say much- other than…

    B) you don’t know what “faux” means

  • Alessandro Aimonetto

    it can’t…it use the X mount (as X-T1 designation says) so the focal flange cannot accept a FF

  • matt jones

    You a so wrong, it’s a Fuji X system APSC camera

  • matt jones

    It looks good, I wonder if this is the end of the fuji hybrid view finder?

  • spencerselvidge

    They need the interior space to fit the slightly larger/faster/brighter EVF. There is limited real estate inside these camera bodies so I am thinking it takes a lot of oragami to get it all to fit nicely. This is just speculation obviously. It could also just be so it looks “pro” or familiar. Who knows. But that large eye-cup might be a reason, too. Lots of potential reasons.

  • http://reciprocity-failure.blogspot.com/ Stan B.

    This camera body is beautifully designed, both ergonomically and aesthetically with its compact curves- until you get to the EVF hump that looks like it was hammered out in a Soviet era machine shop (as with the Sony). Too ungainly a design to be coincidence, or choice…

  • Mike Burchard

    Think you need FF? Why? You’ve got shallow DOF achievable with Fuji’s f/1.4 lenses & upcoming 56mm f/1.2, plus the high resolution & incredible high-ISO performance of X-Trans sensors, hardly anyone could discern the difference between a 16MP X-Trans & a 24MP FF in anything smaller than a 20×24″ print.
    So… so what? Who REALLY needs FF? Very few, that’s who.

    I’m just tired of doing math.

    I’m not a fuji hater, so don’t treat me like one. I have owned an x100 and an x-pro1. I loved them both and will buy an x100s or x200 in the future. I loved that little camera. Perhaps the most enjoyable camera I ever had to be honest.

    But seriously, there are other reasons… imagine the quality of a 16mp xtrans full frame sensor? The light gathering ability of that sensor would be unreal.

  • http://www.colinpeddle.com Colin Peddle

    Also the shallow DOF achievable with a crop sensor isn’t the same as the same shot with a full frame, with a similar aperture. Reason is you need to take a step or two back on the crop sensor to get the same frame as the full frame lens, thus you get a deeper DOF.

    F/1.2 becomes f/2 for the same framing of a full frame 85mm, when done with a 56mm.

  • Swade

    And the distortion of a 23mm lens

  • KTX

    Most Fuji lenses sell for under 1000$

  • Mikey

    I was just about to disagree with your supposed issues with white balance. Yes, like Canon and Olympus, Fuji does tend to oversaturate the reds but to a lesser extent, and like Nikon, also does it a bit to the greens. But since the Fuji X Trans sensor came out, everyone has praised its auto WB function. I personally couldn’t be happier. No more massive tinkering in LR4 to get the WB just right.

  • aa

    no optical viewfinder, no good

  • Ivan

    I hope so. If “2.36M-dot OLED EVF with only 0.005s lag” is really true, then it should be so close to OVFs that hybrid might not make much sense anymore. With EVFs improving all the time there will certainly be the point where for all practical purposes EVFs will match OVFs. But we should wait to see if that is really the case with X-T1, or perhaps Fuji is pushing the new EVF a bit too far.

  • John

    What YOU want Df to be…

    Let’s seen in a year or so, a Df for a thousand bucks less would EAT this one as cake…

  • John

    It’s still a crop sensor…

  • http://www.woodyoneal.com/ Woody ONeal

    and yet the X100S corrects any distortion, in camera as well, with its LMO feature.

  • Sky

    ’90s all over again. And I hoped we’re done with that.

  • Jonathan Pearson

    looks ugly compared to the sony

  • Brendan

    Anyone who uses over ISO 3200, or even 800 on extended exposures (dragged shutter flash shots).
    I shoot music and night clubs. I own a 6D and an X100. I’ll never take anything less than a full frame out at night.

  • Jamaal

    I wonder why people always question why someone needs FF. If YOU don’t need it, that is fine. Other people do. I feel a FF Xtrans sensor would be amazing.

  • gochugogi

    Looks very retro, like the Fujica ST series from the 1970s. I like it.

  • Andy

    f1.2 on aps-c = f1.8 on ff regarding dof!

  • Mike Burchard

    I don’t claim to pose questions on behalf of “people” in general, but here’s what I question: why do so few people grasp the distinction between “need” and “want”? If you WANT a FF sensor for whatever reasons occur to you, have at it, and who cares anyway. But hardly anyone genuinely and objectively NEEDS a FF sensor. In fact, as I said, printed at 20″x24″ or smaller, not more than 1 photographer in 100 could discern a FF image from an APS-C image. Among the common folk who are less than extremely enthusiastic about photography, there is probably no one who can tell the difference. Most of them are satisfied with the images from their iPhones.
    Do you print at 40″x60″? You need FF.
    Is chimping your real passion? You need FF.
    Are you an unapologetic pixel-peeper? You need FF.
    Could you spend hours studying noise patterns at 200% magnification? Go FF.
    Do you just want to take great photos? Get a nice 16MP camera with a good APS-C sensor and get on with your life… ;)

  • Mike Burchard

    I’m certain you’re a very special person, Brendan, dragging your shutter at ISO 800 and whatnot. Someday, perhaps you’ll be toting a Phase One from nightclub to nightclub? Then, everyone will know… ;)

  • Mike Burchard

    Hi Colin! From what you’ve written (or maybe it was how you wrote it?) I’m not at all certain that you grasp how DoF works. Don’t worry, though; it’s a common problem and is easily corrected with some study. I suggest you read a book on basic photography, or take an adult-education course at a local school.

    Anyway, I feel badly that math is so tiresome for you. I must admit that I’m surprised that your computer doesn’t have a built-in calculator. You should look into that. If it has one (most computers do) it will take much of the pressure off you.
    Good luck!

  • Geoff

    Mike, I think you’re the one who needs to take a photography course. If you think FF is all about printing huge photos you’re wrong. It also has to do with greater dynamic range. If no one can tell the difference between APS-C and FF, why don’t pro sports photographers use cropped sensor cameras? If you’re just posting photos on Facebook, I might agree with you. But that’s not the case for pros who shoot for a living.

  • Brendan

    You seem to be under the incorrect belief that printing billboards it the only reason to own full frame. I don’t give a damn about printing sizes but I do give a damn about full frame. I pointed out why.
    I take it from smarmy remark that do not have a good answer to this, do not understand medium format digital sensors and possibly have a curfew before dark.

  • John

    What makes you feel the Df “was” a flop?

    The only “flop” is that Nikon priced it too high, wait a year and it’ll be down there with the 600’s … As the Fuji’s, and lot’s of other stuff, there’s a decrease in price a year or so after they’ve released them… I have a Lumix LX7 that I bought new the month it came, that I use for snapshots and partypics, I paid premium for it and now it’s 30% less MSRP…

    So, that’s just good ol’ capitalism as we know it….

  • amolkolhe

    This thing is a beauty to look at.
    And that Eyecup for viewfinder looks absolutely cozy … large with padding.

    Don’t care so much about all the dials on top, they slow me down :)
