Gadget: Fujifilm X-T1

THE X FACTOR. We all know that when it comes to photography, DSLR holds the coveted heavyweight title. But if you’re hankering after a slimmer version of the pricey camera, go with the mirrorless cousin, in particular the Fujifilm X-T1.




Already causing a huge buzz early this year, the weatherproof gadget brings the best of both worlds: the digital camera’s slender body and DSLR’s versatility. The absence of mirrors inside the mechanism makes it possible for the 16-megapixel to fit in a sheer body yet still have an oversized, rotatable electronic viewfinder. For those who love shooting in manual, the X-T1 smartly puts all the options on top, literally, from the ISO, scene to the lens focus. Smartphone and tablet users may also take advantage of the built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for remote controlling. Add to that the full HD movie recording and built-in stereo microphone, this light camera seriously punches above its weight.
