Fujifilm has introduced a new multimedia mirrorless camera, the FUJIFILM X-T5. It features a newly developed 40MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS 5 HR BSI sensor featuring a lighter body with classic, dial-based layout. Other improvements include a seven-stop in-body image stabilization system, Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode for 160MP files, and action-freezing shutter speeds up to 1/180,000 sec from the electronic shutter. The X-T5 also has enhanced motion imaging capability, recording up to 6.2K in 4:2:2 10-bit color internally, or 12-bit ProRes RAW and Blackmagic RAW via HDMI. There is also a 4K HQ mode which oversamples 6.2K footage for improved 4K output. This higher video resolution also allows for 2x digital zoom functionality without a noticeable image degradation. A 425-point intelligent hybrid AF system improves autofocus performance, and is now sensitive down to -7 EV for working in truly low-light conditions. An AI adaptive algorithm also allows for better focusing suited to automatically detect and track animals, athletes, birds, cars, motorcycles, and moving subjects.
The camera’s in-body image stabilization system uses a 5-axis sensor-shift image to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 7 stops. Additionally, digital image stabilization can also be used during video recording to further aid in steadying footage, especially when recording handheld. A large OLED electronic viewfinder features a crisp 3.69m-dot resolution for eye-level viewing with a 0.8x magnification for critical image analysis. A 3.0″ 1.62m-dot LCD touchscreen for operation and playback with a tilting design to ease getting high and low shooting angles.
The Fujifilm X-T5 will be available from November 17th at a recommended cost of US$1699. For more details, visit: https://fujifilm-x.com/global/products/cameras/x-t5/
