A month after one of the leading Fujifilm models, Fuji X-T1, received firmware update, this Japanese giant introduced an Infrared version of this mirrorless camera - Fuji X-T1 IR.
The Fuji X-T1 IR is the first X-Series camera specifically designed for infrared photography. Namely, thanks to its infrared technology, this MILC model is capable of capturing light from a vast portion of the light spectrum - from visible, over ultraviolet (UV), all the way to infrared (IR) light (in the range of 380 to 1000 nm!). As such, it delivers exceptional performance in demanding fields for technical experts, law enforcement and forensics, medical research and science in general. Infrared technology is of key importance in these fields, as it enables users to spot details elusive to the human eye. Of course, the X-T1 IR will be of great use for ‘regular’ photographers as well.
As far as its specifications are concerned, the Fuji X-T1 IR has taken almost the entire structure of the standard Fuji X-T1, so there is a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, an EXR II processor, a large 2,360,000-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (brings perfect night vision with objects emitting infrared light), a tilting 3" 1,040,000-dot LCD screen, and as well as in the case of the X-T1, the electronic shutter is completely silent.
Like the standard version, the X-T1 IR, too, is packed into a sealed magnesium-alloy housing built to be resistant to bad weather, moisture, dust, high and low temperatures. Videos are Full HD, recorded at 60 fps, the continuous shooting rate is 8 fps, and as well as the original X-T1, it perfectly matches all Fujinon XF lenses.
The revolutionary Fuji X-T1 IR will be up for sale in October, and it will be priced at $1,699.95.
