Fujifilm X-T1 verdict

The X-T1 is Fujifilm’s sixth X-mount camera, but the arguably the first where all the company’s goals and technologies come together in a truly coherent and desirable product. It all started with the X-Pro 1 two years earlier which demonstrated the quality of the X-Trans sensor and X-mount lenses, along with driving the fashion for retro styling. But while the clever hybrid viewfinder attracted some photographers it equally felt irrelevant to others, and most would agree the handling and AF left much to be desired. The system was gradually refined with the smaller X-E1 and X-M1, but it took the X-E2 before the AF and handling enjoyed a significant boost and Wifi made an appearance. Which brings us to the X-T1, which takes everything good about the series so far, adds a huge viewfinder with clever display modes, a tilting screen, continuous autofocus that actually works and repackages the lot into the increasingly popular mini-DSLR form factor, and as the icing on the cake seals it against dust and inclement weather. The result is a very impressive camera that’s a joy to use and delivers superb results……
