The upcoming weather-sealed X-series camera will be announced on January 28
Today, Japanese camera and optics manufacturer Fujifilm is celebrating its 80th birthday and, on this occasion, it decided to tease the announcement of a few of its upcoming products in a document posted on the Fujifilm Holdings Corp website.Among other products, the company reveals the first image of the upcoming weather-sealed X-series camera, the X-T1, and confirms the previously rumored launch date (January 28).
As you can see from the image above, the addition of a centered EVF allowed the design to integrate a new dial on the left side of the camera. So far, we know that the X-T1 will feature the same 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor found on the Fujifilm X-E2.
Moreover, Fujifilm's new X-series camera comes with a tiltable LCD display, support for UHS-II SD cards, and an improved fps rate in comparison with other models from the same series (8fps in burst shooting mode with AF tracking).
