Fujifilm X-T1 PDF User Manual

Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Fujifilm X-T1? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Fujifilm makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the X-T1 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.

That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.

Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Fujifilm X-T1 below.

In any case, the X-T1 is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This mirrorless interchangeable lens camera was officially introduced on January 28th, 2014, which means that, as of today, the camera is 3170 days old (young?). The camera has meanwhile been discontinued and was succeeded by the Fujifilm X-T2 as a replacement in the same line of cameras.

Fujifilm X-T1 FAQ

Below are some additional questions and answers concerning some particular features of the X-T1.

What is the technology behind the imaging sensor in the X-T1?

The camera is build around a CMOS (Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor) sensor.

Which image processing chip is used to convert the raw signal into an image file and perform noise reduction and image sharpening?

Fujifilm equipped the X-T1 with the EXR Processor II image processor.

What is the ISO sensitivity range of the X-T1?

The camera has a native sensitivity range from ISO 200 to ISO 6400, which can be extended to ISO 100-51200.

What is the life expectancy of the shutter in the Fujifilm X-T1?

Fujifilm does not publish a shutter rating for the X-T1. Yet, shutters in comparable cameras from other manufacturers are said to be good for at least 200 000 actuations. It should be noted, though, that this number represents a Mean Time before Failure. The shutter might fail earlier, or it might last longer. Anyway, in order to exhaust an expected shutter life of 200 000 shots over, say, three years, one would have to take about 200 pictures each and every day.

Is completely silent shooting possible with the Fujifilm X-T1?

The camera has an electronic shutter option, so that it is indeed feasible to capture images without any shutter noise.

Do I need to purchase an external camera trigger to shoot time-lapse sequences?

No, the Fujifilm X-T1 has an intervalometer built-in, so that low frequency shooting (for example, flower blooming, sunset, moon rise) can be undertaken without the need to purchase a separate external intervalometer and related software.

Is it difficult to use manual focus lenses with the Fujifilm X-T1?

The X-T1 offers focus peaking as a manual focus aid. This feature works by placing a colored highlight on in-focus zones within the image.

Does the Fujifilm X-T1 feature an autofocus assist light?

Yes, the camera has a lamp built-in that can illuminate the subject and improve autofocus in low-light settings.

What is the fastest shutter speed that can be used with flash?

The X-T1's flash sync speed is 1/180 sec.

Does the Fujifilm X-T1 support the Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus interface for SD cards?

Yes, the camera can indeed use UHS-II cards (data transfer speed of up to 312 MB/s).

Which battery does the X-T1 use?

The camera gets its power from the NP-W126 (here at amazon), which is a rechargeable Lithium-Ion power pack.

Is there a vertical grip available for the X-T1?

Yes, Fujifilm offers the VG-XT1 as an optional accessory to facilitate shooting in portrait orientation and to provide additional battery power.

Where can I find the best deals for the X-T1?

Grey imports from Asia, as found on ebay, are often very attractively priced. However, these cameras come without a warranty from Fujifilm.
