Valhalla, NY—Fujifilm North America Corporation added the Fujifilm X-T1 IR (Infrared), the first advanced infrared X-series mirrorless camera. The premium camera is targeted at fine art photography, technical experts, law enforcement, medical research and scientific communities. Designed for professionals, it pairs seamlessly with all Fujinon XF lenses.
Sharing nearly identical specifications as the Fujifilm X-T1, the new model adds advanced infrared technology to see light from the ultraviolet (UV), visible and infrared (IR) portions of the light spectrum (approximately 380–1,000nm). Infrared imaging allows users to see information that is not visible to the human eye.
The X-T1 IR features a 16.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor, an ultrawide “real-time” (lag time of 0.005 sec) electronic viewfinder (EVF) and a 3-inch, high-resolution tilting LCD screen. It maintains the 100% silent electronic shutter of the X-T1, and its EVF allows night vision with an infrared light source, normally invisible to the human eye.
The exterior of the X-T1 IR is constructed of magnesium alloy, and with 80 points of weather sealing it’s built to be weather resistant, for use in hot or cold, wet or dusty and other challenging weather. It can withstand freezing temperatures down to 14°F. Other features include: a fast, accurate autofocus system with a 0.05-second shutter time lag and shooting interval of 0.5 sec; up to 8-frames-per-sec burst shooting; Full HD 1080p video recording; digital split image and focus highlight peaking; sensitivity settings of ISO 200–6,400, expandable from ISO 100–25,600; interval timer shooting for time-lapse photography; and compatibility with Ultra High Speed UHS-II SD memory cards.
The Fujifilm X-T1 IR will be available in October 2015 for $1,699.95. fujifilmusa.com
