Fujifilm has released its latest mirrorless digital camera, the X-T5, which boasts a class-leading 40.2 megapixel X-Trans 5 HR CMOS sensor. The camera’s improved image processing algorithm delivers highly detailed images across its native ISO range, which has been expanded to ISO 125. The X-T5’s classic design features a range of dials, making it easy to quickly adjust key functions, such as ISO and shutter speed, even when the camera is turned off.
In addition to its impressive image quality, the Fujifilm X-T5 also offers a 1.84 million dot, three-way tilting LCD and powerful in-body image stabilization. The camera’s fast electronic shutter speed of 1/180,000 sec and mechanical shutter speed of 1/8000 sec allow it to freeze even the fastest moving subjects, while its lag time of just 35 ms ensures almost instantaneous response when the shutter is pressed. The X-T5 can capture images at up to 15fps with the mechanical shutter or 20fps with the electronic shutter, and with a single charge of its NP-W235 battery, it can take up to 680 frames. The mechanical shutter also guarantees 500,000 actuations, ensuring long-term accuracy and reliability.
The X-T5’s in-body image stabilization system works in five axes to combat all types of camera movement, providing up to seven stops of compensation. It also works with the camera’s subject detection autofocus, which uses deep learning AI to track a variety of moving subjects, including animals, birds, cars, and trains. The X-T5’s detailed electronic viewfinder, which has a refresh rate of 100fps and 3.69 million dots, allows for virtually blackout-free image making and makes tracking moving subjects easier.
The X-T5 also has a Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode, which uses the camera’s IBIS system to precisely shift the sensor and record 20 separate frames with a single press of the shutter. These files can then be combined using Pixel Shift Combiner software to create a 160 megapixel, highly detailed file, perfect for commercial applications or digital archiving.
In addition to its impressive stills performance, the X-T5 also has powerful video capabilities, including the ability to record internally at up to 6.2K/30p in 4:2:2 10-bit color and a 4K HQ mode that oversamples 6.2K footage for superior 4K output. The camera also supports F-Log and F-Log2 recording, as well as 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW and Blackmagic RAW output via HDMI to Atomos and Blackmagic devices. Overall, the Fujifilm X-T5 is a versatile and powerful mirrorless digital camera that delivers excellent image quality and a range of advanced features for both stills and video. Its combination of high resolution, fast shutter speeds, and in-body image stabilization make it an ideal choice for photographers and videographers looking for a compact, lightweight camera that can handle fast-moving subjects and low-light conditions.
