Fuji to release rumored X-T1 camera tomorrow

Is this the X-T1?
Is this the X-T1?

Fuji has hinted that something big, as in the form of a SLR-styled camera in its new X-mount line. The evidence? A page on Fuji's website dedicated to the yet unnamed camera (though rumors widely call it the X-T1), which is set to be officially unveiled tomorrow, January 28.

So, what of the camera?

Officially, nothing, as all that Fuji is divulging is that the new camera will look like a dSLR and will officially be announced tomorrow.

However, as for a lot of unofficial sources, the specifications are very impressive and include, according to, the following:

  • bigger (x 0.77 magnification) and better (high performance) EVF / (trusted + anonymous sources)

  • APS-C X-Trans sensor II (16MP) / (trusted + anonymous sources)

  • support for the UHS-II SD-card for super-fast writing speed / (trusted sources)

  • dual SD-Card slot (trusted source)

  • 8fps with AF tracking / (trusted source)

  • weather sealed body / (trusted sources)

  • tilt screen (source who was right in the past, but not yet upgraded to trusted source + new source)

  • SLR-type (Fujica) design / (source who was right in the past, but not yet upgraded to trusted source)

  • name: X-T1 / (anonymous source + Fujifilm)

  • WiFi

  • ISO up to 51200 (new source)

  • smaller than the X-E2 (anonymous source)

  • 18-55 kit lens (anonymous source + other rumor sites)

  • 18-135 will be weather sealed (other rumor sites)

  • in stores mid-February (other rumor sites + anonymous source)

  • price range between X-E and X-PRO line / (new and anonymous sources)

  • priced at 180,000 yen (other rumor sites) or $1,800 (anonymous source)

  • additional battery grip / (anonymous source)

  • faster AF then X-E2 / (new source) [I think that this source confused faster writing speed with faster AF-speed]

Needless to say, if these stats are true, Fuji is aiming squarely at professional users with the X-T1. However, only time will tell exactly what it will turn out to be.
