Dialed In

 

Most mirrorless cameras are happy being smaller, beginner-friendly, somewhat less-capable alternatives to DSLRs. But the Fujifilm X-T1 has a different goal in mind: It's built to replace a DSLR camera entirely. Indeed, it's hard to think of a camera...

Great image quality with natural colors and skin tones. Weatherproof body with quick access to practically every setting. Excellent eye-level viewfinder and manual-focus helpers. Fast autofocus and peppy continuous-shooting mode. In-camera...

Battery life is only OK. No built-in flash (but it does come with a little detachable one). Steep learning curve for novices. Expensive for its sensor size

Fujifilm X-T1 Review

 

After starting at the top-end with its X-Pro1, Fujifilm has been steadily expanding its X-series mirrorless camera to appeal to a broader audience. With its X-T1, Fujifilm has moved back towards the high-end, offering a fully-loaded mirrorless camera...

Analogue dials and switches provide engaging shooting experience Superb, huge high resolution electronic viewfinder gives generally-accurate preview of image Excellent image quality at both Low and High ISOs Very attractive JPEG colour rendition...

Rear buttons are small, and almost flush to camera body Four-way controller is rather 'spongey' in feel Awkwardly positioned, locking ISO dial is inconvenient (especially with large lenses) Raw files not recorded when ISO dial set to 'L', 'H1' and 'H2'...

The X-T1 is Fujifilm's most ambitious camera to date, and we'd have to say, probably its best. Its relatively compact, well-built body is peppered with dials and switches which give direct access to all the key photographic settings, encouraging you to...

Fujifilm X-T1

 

The Fujifilm X-T1 is a terrific mirrorless camera, and the best one you'll find in the X system.

Excellent image quality at every ISO. 8.3fps continuous shooting. Snappy autofocus. Time lapse feature. Weather-sealed body. Lots of physical controls. Best-in-class EVF. Great manual focus aids. Hinged rear display. Wi-Fi. 1080p60 video capture.

A little slow to start up. No built-in flash. Geotagging could be better implemented. On the pricey side.

Rear controls include standard playback and delete buttons, separate controls for Autoexposure Lock and Autofocus Lock, a Focus Assist button, the Q button, and four additional programmable Fn controls arranged as up/down/left/right buttons surrounding...

Fujifilm X-T1 Body Only, Black

 

The X-T1 delivers excellent photo quality. While the innards are similar to the X-E2, there are some differences. New, lower-noise circuitry has allowed Fujifilm to bump the maximum sensitivity to ISO 51200 up from ISO 25600. However, I really didn't...

The stunning viewfinder, comfy grip and plethora of direct controls makes the Fujifilm X-T1 a joy to shoot with, plus the image quality is great and the continuous-shooting is among the best in its class.

Some of the controls are too hard to manipulate, its general performance doesn't stand out, and the movie quality disappoints.

The Fujifilm X-T1 is a great camera for advanced photographers as long as its quirks don't bother you.
