Fujfilm X-T1 Supports UHS-II SD Cards, 8 FPS Burst Shooting with AF Tracking

The camera will not have a double SD card slot as previously rumored

The last few days have seen quite a few new bits of information regarding the upcoming Fujifilm weather-sealed X-series camera, and yesterday the company listed the X-T1 model on its FAQ web page, confirming its name.

According to FujiRumors, a Japanese source states that the X-T1 won't feature a double SD card slot as previously rumored but, instead, it will come with support for ultra-fast UHS-II SD cards enabling the camera to record stills and video footage with a very fast writing speed.

The difference between UHS-II and UHS-I SD cards is staggering, as the former can reach speeds up to 240MB/s, while the latter can write information at 90MB/s.

In addition to that, the X-T1 will also come with an improved fps rate in burst shooting mode that allows you to capture up to 8 frames per second with AF tracking. In comparison, the X-E2 is capable of shooting only 3fps with AF tracking and 7fps without tracking.

If these new bits of information turn out to be true, the X-T1 will surely leave its footprint in the mirrorless camera market.
