Fujifilm announced today its latest premium interchangeable lens camera, which we saw last week when the company posted a teaser image of the X-T1 on the company’s X-series mini-site.

Today’s announcement marked the confirmation of a few of the previously heard rumours about the camera. For starters, the X-T1 features a tough, dust and water resistant body with approximately 80 points of weather sealing. It also has freeze resistant engineering that is able to withstand temperature of up to -10 degrees Celsius.

The camera also incorporates a fast EVF (electrical viewfinder) that features unique wide-angle view, a high magnification ratio (0.77x) and a lag-time of 0.005 seconds. The viewfinder uses a 2.36 million dot resolution OLED display that produces crisp details.

Complementing the fast EVF is a newly designed graphic user interface that provides at-a-glance details on your camera’s current settings. The camera offers four display modes that take advantage of the fast EVF: Full which uses the EVF’s high magnification ratio to provide the best view of the scene, Normal for sports and action photography, Dual for manual focusing and Portrait.

Furthermore, the X-T1 also features an EXR Processor II and a new X-Trans CMOS II sensor that uses Fujifilm’s proprietary imaging area phase detection for faster autofocus (around 0.08 seconds), start-up time (0.5 seconds), lower shutter time lag (0.05 seconds) and shotting interval in MF mode (0.5 seconds).

Fujifilm is also launching three new weather resistant zoom lenses to complement the X-T1, the XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R OIS WR, XF16-55mm F2.8R OIR WR and XF50-140mm F2.8R OIS WR.

The Fujifilm X-T1 is expected to be available in Australia in early March, with pricing details to be announced before the camera goes on sale.
