Breaking: FUJIFILM Australia Reveals New X-T5 Mirrorless Camera
Fujifilm has unveiled the new X-T5 camera, which combines the classic X-T Series design with the latest technology.
There have been rumours circulating for months about the anticipated launch of this device, and we can finally reveal what it’s all about and what it has to offer the mirrorless camera photography community.
This X-T5 is the latest addition to Fujifilm’s X Series of mirrorless cameras known for their compact and lightweight body and superior image quality based on the company’s proprietary colour reproduction technology.
The newly announced camera is equipped with the impressive back-illuminated 40.2MP sensor “X-TransTM CMOS 5 HR” and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 5 in a compact body, which is smaller and lighter than the previous X-T4 model.
Not only this, but the new camera has advanced features, including the 5-axis in-body image stabilisation of up to 7.0 stops.
This will very quickly become the new standard camera for still photography, delivering superior performance and mobility.
The X-T5 has new performance enhancements through improved image quality, such as ISO125 as a standard sensitivity, the fastest shutter speed of 1/180,000 sec and the use of Pixel Shift Multi-Shot to expand photographic variations.
Other exciting features include the Smooth Skin Effect, Subject Detection AF, capable of detecting animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, planes, and trains, and AI-based high-precision auto white balance, assisting users in producing high-quality images.
The camera inherits X-T Series’ signature centre viewfinder style and dial operation design. A 1.84-million-dot three-way tilting LCD screen is a new addition, making it more comfortable than ever before to shoot in a vertical position or at waist level.
This extensive array of performance and features is packed into a 557g body, which is even lighter and more compact than the previous model.
The X-T5 will be a perfect companion to cover a wide variety of photographic genres, including street and documentary photography, where portability is a major asset.
The X-T5 also lends itself to landscape and portraiture photography, which demands superior image quality.
Other features that add comfort to the user experience include the ability to record 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 6.2K/30P, the viewfinder magnification of 0.8x, 3.69-million-dot EVF and dual SD-card slots.
The X-T5 joins Fujifilm’s enhanced product lineup alongside the company’s twin flagship models “Fujifilm X-H2S” (released in July 2022) and “Fujifilm X-H2” (released in September 2022).
When speaking to Shaun Mah, General Manager of the Electronic Imaging & Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM Australia, about the major selling points of the new device, he explains:
The new X-T5 camera offers photographers that classic X-T Series design and love of using dials combined with the latest technology whilst also being compact and lightweight.
The new camera also qualifies for Fujifilm’s 3-Year Warranty, giving photographers and videographers peace of mind.
