Due to the X-Trans CMOS II sensor architecture that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and integrates FUJFILM's originally developed color filter array, the FUJIFILM X-T1 reproduces scenes with resolution and clarity rivaling a larger sensor.
X-Trans CMOS II sensor incorporates an original color filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). These filters are used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The X-Trans CMOS II sensor array lets the sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens, achieving an unprecedented level of resolution.
The advanced Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) technology in the FUJIFILM X-T1 was made possible by the integrated development of the lens, sensor and processor. For each mounted lens, LMO high-precision processing of the lens focal length and aperture, as well as data from the screen center to the edges, corrects diffraction blur when shooting with a stopped down aperture and compensates for the slight blurring in the lens periphery. The result is edge-to-edge image quality with incredible sharpness and a sense of dimensional reality.
High-speed responses from the on-sensor phase detection AF system. Accurate focusing in dark scenes that only contrast AF can deliver. The FUJIFILM X-T1 has both, plus Intelligent Hybrid AF for automatic switching to the optimal focusing system for the scene and conditions. A newly developed algorithm improves AF accuracy when shooting low-contrast subjects and dark scenes. The evolved AF system of the FUJIFILM X-T1 brings your subject into sharp focus so quickly that priceless moments will never escape your lens.
To broaden photographic opportunities in low-light scenes, you'll find an expanded sensitivity range, which now extends to an impressive ISO 51200. To combat noise at these ultra-high sensitivity settings, the arrangement of components and circuits around the sensor has been redesigned, keeping blacks black, with minimal grain and no color casts.
The adoption of the dual CPU and improved computational performance has doubled the processing speed when compared with the previous generation processor**, the start-up time has also improved to only approx. 0.5 sec.*** Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.5 sec.*4 and shutter time lag to 0.05 sec.
Faster response means more confidence in capturing the moment, and the FUJIFILM X-T1 delivers it. Using phase-detection autofocus, combined with high-speed subject predictive, the AF accurately follows your subject through the frame, even at the highest continuous shooting speed of 8.0 frames/sec.
With an UHS-II SD memory card installed, the data writing speed in continuous mode increases to about twice that of a conventional card.*6
Set the starting time, the shooting interval (1 sec. to 24 hr.) and finally the number of frames (1 - 999), and the FUJIFILM X-T1 does the rest, allowing you to discover the unique world of time-lapse photography.
Over decades of film manufacture Fujifilm has perfected the skill of color reproduction and it lives on in the FUJIFILM X-T1. Pleasing skin tones, natural blues and greens, and the ability to perfectly record the diversity of white balance conditions throughout the day are all taken in the camera's stride, and it also boasts a wide dynamic range for better reproduction of detail.
With Film Simulation, you can choose from classic Fujifilm photo styles, and give your pictures varied color and tone to suit the subject, just like pros did with film. There's standard PROVIA, vivid Velvia, and ASTIA with its true-to-life skin tones; PRO Neg.Std and PRO Neg.Hi, which are portrait modes based on professional color negative film; and Monochrome expression with three different filter effects as well as Sepia.
With a choice of 5 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range, Film Simulation and White Balance), you are ready to explore a whole world of photographic effects with just one press of the shutter.
Just fire the shutter once and capture the same scene at your selected white balance setting plus one frame at a warmer and another at a cooler color temperature. White Balance bracketing can be set in ±1, ±2 and ±3 steps.
Capture 3 exposures of the same scene with high-speed continuous shooting, each at a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% & 400%).
Just press the shutter once and get three images of the scene based on a single exposure, each image with a different Film Simulation effect that you have selected.
One press of the shutter captures 3 shots of the same scene at different exposures. AE bracketing can be set in ±1/3, ±2/3 or ±1 EV steps.
Based on a single exposure, the scene is automatically reproduced as three images, each with a different ISO sensitivity, but without altering the shutter speed and aperture. This lets you capture the moment with varying degrees of brightness, but leaves depth-of-field and shutter effects unchanged. ISO Sensitivity Bracketing is possible in ±1/3, ±2/3 or ±1 EV steps.
