Fujifilm Teases Retro-Tastic X-T1 Camera



Fujifilm, arguably the company that started the current (and very welcome) trend of putting proper manual knobs and dials back on cameras, is currently teasing what looks like an SLR-style model for its outstanding X-Series lineup. Likely to be named the XT–1, the camera might take over the role of the current top-of-the-line X-Pro1.

The X-T1 looks like an old film-era SLR, with dials for shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation, plus a proper aperture ring and focussing ring around the lens. The top of the camera has a pentaprism housing, but this is more likely to be a spot for the electronic viewfinder. I do wonder if the camera will sport the X100S and X-Pro1’s amazing hybrid finder – it would be an odd feature to lose, but the teaser photo on Fujifilm’s site keeps the front of the camera in shadow.

Still, Fujifilm has been on a roll recently, and this camera is likely to be awesome. I can’t wait to see what it does. And happily, I won’t have to wait for long: the announcement will be next week, on the 28th January.
