Original RRP £1,699 | You Save £326
The Fujifilm X-T5 is a stylish, compact and lightweight mirrorless camera body in black that features a back-illuminated 40.2MP sensor X-Trans CMOS 5 HR and the high-speed image processing engine X-Processor 5. The 5-axis in-body image stabilisation gives stabilisation up to 7.0 stops. This is the new standard camera for still photography, delivering superior performance and mobility at the same time.
The X-T5 includes improved image quality, ISO125 as a standard sensitivity, the fastest shutter speed of 1/180000 sec and the use of Pixel Shift Multi-Shot to expand photographic variations. Other features include the Smooth Skin Effect, Subject Detection AF capable of detecting animals and birds, and AI-based high-precision auto white balance.
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 vertical position or at waist level.
Other features include the ability to record 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 6.2K/30P, 3.69-million-dot EVF and dual SD-card slots.
40MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor and the high-speed X-Processor 5 image processing engine
The X-T5 features the back-illuminated 40.2MP sensor X-Trans CMOS 5 HR. The use of an improve image processing algorithm delivers advanced image resolution without compromising the S/N ratio to achieve superior image quality. The X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HR sensor can take in more light efficiently thanks to its improved pixel structure. ISO125, which was an extended ISO level in the previous model, is now available as a standard option. And exposure time is controlled in high precision, allowing users to set the shutter speed as fast as 1/180000 sec. This means large-aperture lenses can be used wide open in a greater variety of conditions.
The X-T5 features three dials on the top panel for controlling ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation. Users can check and change camera settings even before turning it on, as with the case of the aperture ring, featured in most XF lenses. This makes it easy to reflect users’ photographic intentions to camera operations.
A new feature of the camera is the 1.84-million-dot three-way tilting LCD. It makes it easy to shoot in vertical position or at waist level, liberating users from constraints in a wide range of photographic situations.
High resolution EVF
The camera is equipped with a high-magnification 3.69-million-dot EVF with 0.8x magnification. Compared to the previous model, the viewfinder has improved suppression of parallax and distortion, which typically occurs when an eye position becomes displaced while using the viewfinder, for stellar visibility.
Compact and lightweight
Evolved IBIS mechanism and other parts, including EVF, has resulted in a compact body that weighs just 557g. Optimized operability of dials and buttons has led to a reduced form factor and improved usability at the same time. This is coupled with the camera’s weather-resistant structure to allow users to take the X-T5 into any conditions with peace of mind.
Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function
This camera features the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function, which quadruples image resolution and produces accurate colour reproduction, ideal for commercial photography and digital archiving of cultural assets. The IBIS mechanism is used to shift the image sensor at high precision to carry out automatic shooting of 20 frames in a single click of the shutter. The dedicated software “Pixel Shift Combiner” processes the captured frames to generate an image containing some 160 million pixels.
5-axis in-body image stabilisation
The X-T5 features the 5-axis in-body image stabilization of up to 7.0 stops. Users can shoot hand-held even in low light conditions such as nightscape photography. The IBIS mechanism is also used to shift the camera’s image sensor in high precision to facilitate the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function.
The X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor has a greater number of phase detection pixels than the previous model, resulting in an improved ability to attain AF-S focus on a high-frequency subject, providing accurate autofocusing in situations where AF-S is typically used, such as landscape photography and portraiture. The use of an improved AF prediction algorithm offers stable focusing also in the AF-C mode.
Subject detection AF
The subject detection AF, based on deep learning technology, is capable of detecting animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, airplanes and trains with AI technology. The system automatically tracks a subject while maintaining focus, so that users can concentrate on shutter opportunities and framing.
Advanced video functions including 6.2K movie shooting
6.2K movies can be recorded internally at 30P in 4:2:2 10-bit colour. X-T5 features the 4K HQ mode, which uses 6.2K over-sampling to produce high-quality video, while making the maximum advantage of the high-resolution sensor to deliver video in superior image resolution.
X-T5 supports F-Log2, which records an expanded dynamic range of 13+ stops. This range is wider than current F-Log, broadening post-production potential. When combined with an optional ATOMOS HDMI device, the RAW video output from the X-T5 can be recorded as 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW*5 at frame sizes up to 6.2K and frame rates up to 29.97fps. And when combined with Blackmagic Design Video Assist 12Gs, the RAW video output from the camera can be recorded as Blackmagic RAW at frame sizes up to 6.2K and frame rates up to 29.97fps
Smooth Skin Effect
The Smooth Skin Effect, which automatically smooths the skin tone, is also featured, reducing post-processing workload required in portrait photography, etc., so that images can be finished at an advanced level of perfection much quicker than ever before.
19 Film Simulation modes
The X-T5 comes with 19 Film Simulation modes, including “Nostalgic Neg.,” characterized by high saturation and soft tonality. Users can use Film Simulation presets, designed for various subject types and scenes, as if they are choosing photographic film.
Auto White Balance
The X-T5 features Auto White Balance based on the Deep Learning technology. AI technology has boosted the camera’s ability to automatically determine white balance, e.g. by way of accurately recognizing warm light-bulb colour.
