Fujifilm has unveiled the successor to its X-T4 mirrorless camera. With the soon-to-be-released X-T5, the Japanese manufacturer shows off its most enhanced video-capturing tech yet, in addition to some other notable upgrades.
While the CMOS 4 Sensor was top-of-the-line when Fujifilm first released the X-T4, that was over two years ago, and technology in this field advances unsurprisingly fast. Thanks to the brand’s latest 40MP sensor, the XT-5 can capture remarkably crisp 6.2K footage at a rapid-fire 30 fps. Video-wise, the camera also features F-Log and F-Log 2 recording options, which offer over 13 stops of dynamic range. Additional enhancements include a maximum shutter speed of 1/180,000, an improved in-body stabilization system with seven total stops, a high-resolution, tilting 3″ LCD, and an upgraded magnification system.
The new camera’s streamlined design is another notable plus, as it weighs and measures in at less than the X-T4. Above all else, it is more ergonomic, as the shutter button and front control dial have been reoriented for an easier hold. Aside from these minor differences, it still features the same battery as its predecessor, as well as the same variety of compatible ports and card slots, including a USB-C port.
Fujifilm’s X-T5 Mirrorless Camera will be available on November 17, starting from $1,699 for the body alone.
