The weather resistant structure is sealed in approximately 80 places and is both dust and water resistant. Additionally it is designed to cope in temperatures as low as -10°C allowing field photography without the typical worries about the weather, season or general shooting environment.
When used in conjunction with the XF18-135mm and Vertical Battery Grip VG-XT1, which have the same sealing structure as the camera body, the camera offers a reliable system for your field photography in damp conditions.
Strong doesn't have to mean heavy and with its body made from die-cast magnesium, the FUJIFILM X-T1's chassis is sturdy and durable as well as compact and lightweight. The exposure compensation, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity dials are all precision milled from aluminum and deliver a reassuring click at every notched setting, while reinforced glass is used for added protection of the LCD screen. In every detail, the high-performance FUJIFILM X-T1 is designed to be tough and reliable.
The FUJIFILM X-T1 brings you back to the very essence of photography — the control of light — and it comes via the manual shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity and metering dials. Including the drive dial, all five dials are intuitively arranged on the camera's top-plate and the use of double-deck dials both simplifies operation and streamlines the elegant design.
The FUJIFILM X-T1's big, bright LCD screen is clear to see under all conditions whether you're inside or out, thanks to its improved refresh rate. Composing and reviewing images has never been easier, while in tough shooting conditions, the reinforced glass screen enhances durability.
With the Diopter adjustment control to the left of the viewfinder, and the Viewfinder Mode switch on the right, you can completely immerse yourself in composing the shot by never taking your eye off the subject.
The frequently used shutter speed and exposure compensation (±3EV) dials are on the right of the camera's top-plate, and the ISO sensitivity is on the left. In each case, the tactile quality of the milled aluminum dials enhances operational comfort and gives a high-quality feel.
The metering dial sits neatly below the shutter speed dial, and the drive dial is below the ISO sensitivity.
Everything in the FUJIFILM X-T1's design and production process has been aimed at creating a precision instrument, so you can be sure of quality and performance that's worthy of the "X" name. And with an eye on its use in challenging environments, it's a tough companion, too.
A total of six function buttons are arranged on the top, front and rear, including the four-way selector, and together with the Q button, you can instantly access any settings you need.
Whether twinned with prime lenses or telephoto zooms, the FUJIFILM X-T1 promises a fine balance of handling and stability with any lens, and a silhouette that's as functional as it is striking.
