The first Fujifilm X-T10 details, which is dubbed to become the smaller and cheaper Fujifilm X-T1, have been leaked on the web ahead of its announcement date.
There have been a few mentions about the cheaper Fujifilm X-T1 version within the rumor mill. This model is supposed to borrow the looks of the X-T1, but the company will remove some of its features in order to make it more compact, lighter, and more affordable.
After its name has showed up on the web, the first details and specs of the mirrorless camera have been leaked, hinting that this may not be the unit that the company’s fans look for in an upcoming X-mount camera.
Fujifilm X-T10 mirrorless camera will not be weathersealed
Due to the fact that it has been called the mini X-T1, a lot of people have expected the Fujifilm X-T10 to be weathersealed. However, it appears that this is not the case and that the mirrorless camera will not be able to handle harsh conditions like its bigger sibling.
Photographers would have enjoyed a cheaper X-mount camera, as the X-T1 is available for about $1,200 at Amazon, Adorama, and B&H PhotoVideo, but they might have to wait longer than first thought for such device.
Following this revelation, it is unclear why the shooter has been referred to as the “mini X-T1”. The answer is said to be the design, which will be inspired by the first weathersealed X-mount mirrorless camera.
The X-Pro1, X-E1, and X-E2 cameras all feature built-in viewfinders, but they are located on the back on the top left corner. The X-T1 has an integrated viewfinder as well, but it is one positioned on top of the device, like the one you would normally see in an SLR camera.
Leaked Fujifilm X-T10 details reveal that the camera will have a smaller EVF than the X-T1
The other piece of information is that the mirrorless camera’s electronic viewfinder will be smaller than the one found in the Fuji X-T1. As stated above, the X-T10 is expected to come with a built-in EVF located on top of the shooter.
The X-T1 has one of the best EVFs on the market, but the Japan-based company must do something in order to keep the costs of the upcoming X-T10 down. As a result, the manufacturer has decided to make the EVF tinier.
Unfortunately, this is where the new Fujifilm X-T10 details end. There are no words on a more specific launch date, other than the fact that the shooter will be introduced by the end of the year.
