Fujifilm is working on a cheaper version of the X-T1 weathersealed camera, called X-T10, which could begin shipping at the end of this spring, at the earliest.
It all started as a shy rumor stating that Fujifilm is developing an alternative version of its first weathersealed X-mount camera, the X-T1. The device is being mentioned by more and more sources, which means that the camera is indeed real and on its way.
After some specs of the so-called X-T10 have been leaked on the web, a trusted source, who has provided accurate details in the past, is now claiming that the shooter is coming later this spring at the earliest or sometime in early summer, if it misses its deadline.
Fujifilm X-T10 release date details: camera coming in late spring or early summer
Fujifilm could hold a press event this spring in order to reveal a new X-mount mirrorless camera. The X-T10 is said to come to the market in late spring 2015. However, if it misses this deadline, then it will definitely begin shipping in early summer.
The Fujifilm X-T10 release date is expected to be scheduled for sometime in late spring, which means that the camera is not coming sooner than May 2015.
This timeframe is not very far away, so we are expecting to see more specifications and some photos of the device leaked on the web in the future. Nevertheless, do not hold your breath over such leaks as they may never materialize.
What we know about the cheaper Fujifilm X-T1 version
The Fuji X-T10 is rumored to feature the same 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II image sensor as the X-T1. Most likely, it will employ a similar design to that of this camera, meaning that its electronic viewfinder will be placed in the middle of the body and will have an SLR-like bump.
Despite being based on the X-T1, this cheaper version will not be weathersealed and will feature a smaller electronic viewfinder than its source of inspiration.
For the time being, these are all the known details about the shooter. Although some information is coming from reliable sources, you still need to take the details with a pinch of salt. However, you should stay tuned for more info, as we will let you know as soon as it becomes available!
