Fujifilm X-T1 Review

After spending a month shooting with it last year, I felt compelled to write a full review on the innovative, stunning Fujifilm X-T1 – it impressed me that much! The Fujifilm X-T1 embody a wide variety of enhancements to enhance performance, operation and speed. This means that one camera will let you do an awful lot of things. Almost every available surface of the body is covered with buttons, dials and switches. This camera has impressive image quality in a modern, polished, ergonomics package well-suited to travel. 8.0 fps burst rate are good enough for most applications, and it performs well in low light situations.

Being a DSLR, the Fujifilm X-T1 can track focus at full speed using its 49-point autofocus system, which uses the same phase-detection module as the previous model. I found high-ISO RAW performance innovative in shadow areas, especially when you push the exposure in post but I’d avoid going much higher than this. If you keep one EN-EL15 in your Fujifilm X-T1 and a second in the grip, it will sequence between them seamlessly. The camera is able to shoot 4K video, which nowadays is the standard. Furthermore, packed with the versatile array of APS-C favorite Fujifilm lenses, the fascinating advanced is capable of telling any story you can imagine. Elementary, supreme and robust design makes Fujifilm X-T1 operation a thing of beauty. Handling is an intangible quality that doesn't show up on the spec sheet, but the reputable Fujifilm X-T1 felt fascinating and is the easiest-to-use, convincing superb camera I've tried.

Fujifilm cameras have numerousness lenses and superb accessories and a surprising number of grips available for them. From low light indoor environments to the high-grade outdoors in broad daylight, the best Fujifilm X-T1 captures every extraordinary, awesome picture in the best possible light. It is important to remember that cameras, like anything else, can break the higher the quality of your camera, the less of a chance that this will happen. Capture top-tier high resolution images with high-speed continuous shooting up to 8.0 fps. Overall the Fujifilm X-T1 is a spurious, excellent and versatile DSLR camera. After using the Fujifilm X-T1 for a few days on two separate photography places, I can all in all say that it is one of the most capable and impressive cameras on the market.
