It’s been rumored about for weeks but Fujifilm finally took the wraps off its latest pro camera: the 16.3-megapixel X-T1, a mirrorless shooter in a rugged, weather-resistant body that resembles a digital SLR.
Writer Bob Rose got some hands-on time with the new Fuji X-T1 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this month and filed a preview of the camera on Rangefinder Magazine’s blog “Photoforward.”
While it has the same APS-C X-Trans II CMOS sensor as the Fujifilm X-E2, the new X-T1 is a completely new camera otherwise, featuring 75 points of weather sealing that makes the camera body dust-resistant and water-resistant. The X-T1 is also freezeproof to -14°F.
The Fuji X-T1 will go on sale at the end of February 2014 for 1,299.95, camera body only. With an 18-55mm FUJINON lens, the X-T1 camera kit will sell for $1,699.95.
