Inputs and Outputs Notes
Overview: The Fujifilm X-T1 is part of the X-series
interchangeable lens digital cameras. It has the Fujifilm X-mount, and is
compatible with XF-series lenses. This "body only" package does not include any lenses.
Compatible Lenses: The X-T1 is compatible with the
following Fujinon XF prime lenses:
XF18mm F2 R,
XF35mm F1.4 R, and
XF60mm F2.4 R Macro.
These lenses offer precise control over depth-of-field and excellent
out-of-focus bokeh, due to the design of the molded aperture diaphragm blades.
In addition, Fujinon XF zoom lenses, such as the
10-24mm lenses, provide crystal clear images near and far. With the optional
M Mount Adapter (sold separately) you can use a wide variety of M-mount lenses from Leica, Voigtlander, Carl Zeiss, and Ricoh.
3" LCD Monitor:
The X-T1 has a 3" color LCD
monitor featuring 1,040,000 dots and approximately 100% horizontal
and vertical coverage in the shooting mode. When shooting, you can choose from a
standard display, an information display, or a custom display, which allows you to
select from up to 15 items to display in the monitor. You can also choose an
Information Off display.
0.5" OLED Viewfinder: The camera is equipped with a 0.5"
Organic LED (OLED) viewfinder with 2,360,000 dots and 100% frame coverage. An
eye sensor on the viewfinder automatically turns on the viewfinder and turns off
the LCD monitor when you bring the camera up to your eye, and turns it off when
you take it away. The viewfinder has a diopter
correction dial that allows you to adjust the strength of the viewfinder in
accordance with your eyesight.
The X-T1 features the new 23.6mm x 15.6mm APS-C format, X-Trans CMOS II image sensor with
16.3-million effective square pixels (16.7 total pixels). The sensor features an
original color filter array that minimizes moiré and color aberrations. Coupled
with the X-Trans CMOS II sensor is the high-speed EXR Processor II, which
reduces the start-up time and shooting interval to 0.5 seconds, the shutter time
lag to 0.05 seconds, and the Auto Focus to a blistering 0.08 seconds. This
sensor/processor combination also allows you to shoot continuously of up to 8
frames per second.
Recording Media: Still images and movies can be recorded onto
optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards, including ultra-high-speed UHS-II
format SD cards. Class 10 cards or better are recommended for recording movies. No memory cards are included with the
Still Image Quality: The X-T1 records still images in JPEG
format in 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect
ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine or Normal). In addition, RAW images can be
recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor.
RAW format images can be processed on a computer using the supplied RAW File
Converter application software, or converted to JPEG in the camera. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the
same time, with separate RAW and JPEG files recorded and stored.

- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image,
you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader
color rendition of Adobe RGB (for commercial printing).
Exposure Compensation: Using the dedicated Exposure
Compensation dial on the top of the camera, you
can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures
brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure a total of 19 steps from -3.0 to +3.0 EV in 1/3
EV steps. Exposure compensation is available in all shooting modes except
Bracketing: You can take a series of photos with varying
settings for each picture. Bracketing options include:
- AE: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will
take three shots, one using the metered value for
exposure, the second overexposed by the selected amount, and the third
underexposed by the same amount.
- ISO: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will
take three shots, one using the current sensitivity setting, the second with
the sensitivity raised, and the third with the sensitivity lowered.
- Film Simulation: Each time the shutter is released, the
camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with the film
simulation settings selected.
- Dynamic Range: Each time the shutter is pressed, the
camera will take three shots up to about 6 fps, each with different dynamic
ranges: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
