Fujifilm has officially revealed the X-T1 IR, a special version of the X-T1 which has been created for infrared photography purposes with implications in healthcare and crime scene investigation fields.
From time to time, digital imaging companies are launching special versions of already-available cameras. An example is the Nikon D810A, which is a modified version of the big-megapixel D810 and which has been designed with astrophotography in mind. The latest special version of a camera is the Fujifilm X-T1 IR, an interesting mirrorless camera that has just become official.
The brand new Fujifilm X-T1 IR comes with an infrared filter that will help people working in healthcare and crime scene investigation as well as in many other fields by revealing important details that are not visible to the naked eye.
Fujifilm X-T1 IR becomes official with infrared photography capabilities
It is nearly identical in every way to the original X-T1. As stated above, it is called Fujifilm X-T1 IR and it comes packed with a cutting-edge imaging technology that allows its sensors to see light ranging from the ultraviolet spectrum to the infrared spectrum.
The Japan-based company has revealed that this new mirrorless camera will be able to see all light in the 380-1000nm spectrum. The implications will be important in fields such as healthcare and crime scene investigation, the company said in a press release.
Nevertheless, the details that are not normally visible to the naked eye could prove useful in fine art photography. Photographers who were looking for something to test their imagination now have the perfect tool at their disposal, a tool that will deliver an outstanding image quality.
Original and infrared versions are identical when it comes to their specifications
Beside the infrared technology, the Fujifilm X-T1 IR remains identical to the mirrorless camera that served as a model. This means that the shooter comes with a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II APS-C-sized sensor offering maximum ISO sensitivity of 51,200.
The device is powered by an EXR Processor II and employs a built-in 2.36-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder as well as a 3-inch 1.04-million-dot tilting LCD screen.
This weathersealed camera records full HD videos at up to 60fps and comes with a fully-electronic shutter delivering speeds of up to 1/32000s. Among other features, users will find Focus Peaking and Time-Lapse Photography.
The Fujifilm X-T1 IR will be released on the market for $1,699 this October and it is available for pre-order at Amazon
