Fujifilm has announced a third high-end camera this year, the X-T5 and no doubt many Fujifilm enthusiasts were half expecting this new model, based on the release of the X-H2. They won't be disappointed!

"The new X-T5 camera offers photographers that classic X-T Series design and love of using dials combined with the latest technology whilst also being compact and lightweight', said Shaun Mah, General Manager of the Electronic Imaging & Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM Australia. "This camera also qualifies for our 3 Year Warranty, giving photographers peace of mind whilst capturing that decisive moment," added Mah.

X-T5 features a fifth-generation, back-illuminated 40.2MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor and the high-speed image processing engine X-Processor 5, in a body which is smaller and lighter (557 g) than the previous model, as well as 5-axis in-body image stabilisation of up to 7.0 stops (as measured with a standard 35mm lens).

ISO 125 is the default sensitivity, the fastest shutter speed is an amazing 1/180,000 second and you can use Pixel Shift Multi-Shot to capture a 160MP equivalent file for huge enlargements. Other features include a Smooth Skin Effect (we've yet to play with this), Subject Detection AF capable of detecting animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, planes, and trains (this works a treat on the X-H2 and X-H2s), and Al-based high-precision auto white balance.

The camera inherits the X-T Series' signature centre viewfinder style and dial operation design. A 1.84-million dot, three-way tilting LCD screen makes it more comfortable than ever to shoot in a vertical position or at waist level.  And if video is your game, you can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 video at 6.2K/30P.

Like you, we've only just learned of the X-T5's announcement, so stay tuned for a full review of the camera in a future issue of Better Photography magazine. The RRP for an X-T5 body only is AUS $3199.
