FUJIFILM recently announced that they are going to launch their new X-T1 IR (Infrared), which will be the first advanced infrared X-series mirrorless camera that promises demanding fields like law enforcement, scientific communities, medical research and technical environments high performance at all times. The X-T1 IR has almost the same specifications as the award-winning FUJIFILM X-T1. The only difference is that it has advanced infrared technology to allow users to capture moments without using the traditional color spectrum, but with high sensitivity to infrared light. What is amazing about this innovative device is that it is a premium mirrorless camera designed especially for professionals. It also pairs perfectly with high quality Fujinon XF lens to ensure exceptional results.
What sets the X-T1 IR apart?
The X-T1 IR uses an updated design that passes 380-1000nm, which allows photographers to shoot subjects that may otherwise be invisible in the naked eye. This extended range feature will be perfect for fine art photography as well as healthcare and crime scene investigation applications.
The new FUJIFILM X-T1 IR has the same performance and capabilities of the original X-T1. But with its advanced infrared technology, it delivers outstanding results, making it easier for users with a wide range of work requirements, including fine art photography, crime scene investigation, healthcare diagnostics and observation and other scientific and technical fields.
