It seems like there will not be two SD card slots for Fujifilm X-T1 users, as a reliable source is claiming that the weatherproof camera will pack only one such slot.
Fujifilm is rumored to be working on a weatherproof mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. It will become the first X-mount shooter to provide such capabilities for photographers.
The name of the product has been leaked on the web by an Indonesian regulatory agency, which has also confirmed that the mirrorless camera will feature built-in WiFi. Fujifilm X-T1 is the retail name of the shooter and sources have said that it will be announced on January 28.
Now dual SD card slots for Fujifilm X-T1, just one slot with UHS-II super-fast writing speed support
One of the most exciting features of the device consists of the dual SD card slots. Sources have previously claimed that the X-T1 will feature two slots for SD cards, which has given photographers reasons for joy.
Unfortunately, potential buyers will have to contain their excitement, as the rumor mill is now saying that the shooter will provide no such capabilities. Instead, the weathersealed camera will feature just one SD card slot, like most other digital shooters.
The good thing, though, is that the SD card technology will be better than what we can find in most such devices. According to inside sources, the Fuji T camera will employ the UHS-II super-fast writing speed technology.
UHS-II cards are known for reaching 240MB/s writing speeds, which is 2.5 times faster than the fastest consumer UHS-I writing speeds of 95MB/s.
Fujifilm X-T1 specs list to feature continuous mode up to 8fps with AF tracking enabled
The new Fujifilm X-T1 specs also include the ability to capture up to 8 frames per second with AF tracking in continuous shooting mode.
The latest X-mount camera, called X-E2, is capable of taking 7fps without AF tracking or 3fps with AF tracking enabled.
The bump in speed is without a doubt the work of the UHS-II super-fast writing speed system, but it will require users to purchase such SD cards, which are more expensive.
New Fuji X-T1 weathersealed camera is powered by 16.3MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor
Among the other rumored specs of the weathersealed X-T1, users will find a 16.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II image sensor, larger and improved electronic viewfinder, and support for an additional battery grip.
The X-T series will be placed between the X-Pro and X-E series, so expect the price to sit somewhere between that of the X-Pro1 and X-E2.
Official announcement takes place during an event scheduled for January 28, so say tuned for more information!
