The X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition's quality shine is achieved through the six advanced stages.
A sixth choice has been added to Film Simulation, which gives a unique luster and depth to photos; Classic Chrome. Classic Chrome was inspired by feedback and requests from X Series photographers and its look is inspired by printed images in magazines from the glory days of photo journalism, rather than a specific film type.
Rather than a pure record of the scene, Classic Chrome offers photographers a more expressive, and artistic look to their shots.
When using lenses with very wide apertures, like the Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R and the XF56mmF1.2 R, it's possible to acheive a very shallow depth-of-field and beautiful bokeh along with a sharp subject. However, when using these wide apertures in very bright light, like on a sunny day, shutter speed can limit shooting options and mean the widest aperture settings are unavailable. To fix this, the FUJIFILM X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition now includes an electronic shutter mode with a top speed of 1/32000 sec, meaning you can use wide apertures more easily than ever before.
The optical viewfinder in a DSLR requires a mirror box that makes noise as it moves up and down during an exposure, but the FUJIFILM X-T1 has a special design with no such mechanism, so shooting is quieter. To complement this, even the sound of the shutter opening and closing can now be removed thanks to the new electronic shutter mode. No noise at the beginning or end of the exposure makes the camera incredibly useful for subjects like nature, weddings, or live events when users need to remain quiet.
Adaptable Live View Mode is ready for anything.
One of the great benefits of an electronic viewfinder is that what you see is what you get'; the final image is displayed in real-time so any Film Simulation modes or other effects can be checked while shooting. But users sometimes need to see colors close to how they're viewed with an optical finder, or to focus on shadow detail, which some high-contrast effects block out. To aid this, the Natural Live View function has been added and, when "PREVIEW PIC. EFFECT" is turned Off in the menu, an image close to the naked eye is displayed during live view.
11 adaptable vividness levels guarantee the perfect view
Whether it's through a viewfinder, on an LCD screen, or with the naked eye, we all see color differently, so to ensure that users get the perfect view, vividness of the image displayed can now be adjusted through 11 levels, from -5 to +5. This function can be controlled separately for the electronic viewfinder and the LCD monitor, so it remains totally effective no matter what the lighting conditions or shooting style.
To complement the premium-coated FUJIFILM X-T1, a luxury leather shoulder strap and aluminum hot shoe cover are supplied with the camera in a limited-edition kit.
1. Direct selection of AF Area
To make focusing changes easier through the viewfinder, the update will let users select the focus area using the 4-way controller and menu button, and bring the focus area back to the centre of the viewfinder without pressing the Fn key.
2. Unlocked AE-L/AF-L buttons
The function of the AE-L/AF-L button is currently locked, but will be interchangeable, depending on the user's preference.
3. Changeable Focus Area during MF
When working in Manual focus mode, the update will enable changing the size of the focus area during One Push AF with the AF-L button.
4. Direct selection of Macro mode
In Autofocus mode, the update will enable the Macro function to be turned on or off, without accessing the pop-up menu screen.
5. Q Menu customization
To make the Q Menu (used for quick access of frequently-used items) even more efficient, the update will allow items and layout of its 4x4 palette to be changed to the user's preference.
6. New video frame rates
As well as the existing 60fps and 30fps selections, 50fps, 25fps and 24fps options will be available with the update. 50fps and 25fps allow video editing in the PAL regions, such as Europe, without converting the frame rate. 24fps offers a cinema-like view.
7. Manual shooting in Video mode
Previously limited to setting aperture before recording and exposure compensation during shooting video, the update will also enable ISO sensitivity selection prior to shooting, as well as the ability to adjust aperture and shutter speed during movie recording.
8. Phase Detection AF support for Instant AF
In Instant AF mode, which is operated by pressing the AF-L button during manual focusing, the update will enable Phase Detection AF, providing faster focusing speeds than the previous Contrast Detect AF.
9. Interlocking of Metering and AF areas
By combining spot metering functions with the movable AF area, instead of it being fixed in the center as before, spot metering can be achieved wherever the camera is focused.
10. Expansion of shutter speed in Program Shift mode
In the current Program Shift mode, the slowest-speed setting is 1/4sec, but this will increase to a maximum of 4secs.
