Fujifilm introduces X-T50 mirrorless camera with physical switch to simulate film


Fujifilm has officially unveiled the X-T50 mirrorless camera, which is a logical continuation of the X-T30 and X-T30 II models. The novelty is equipped with an APS-C format sensor and retains all the key features of its predecessors, including light weight and convenient manual controls.

Developers have equipped the camera with a 40.2-megapixel sensor, similar to that used in the flagship model X-T5. It supports 6.2K video shooting at up to 30 frames per second, as well as many other features of X-T5. Visually, the novelty resembles X-T30 II and weighs only a little more - 438 grams.

One significant difference is the introduction of a physical switch to simulate shooting on film with eight preset modes: Acros, Nostalgic Negative, Classic Neg, Reala Ace, Classic Chrome, Astia, Velvia and Provia. Three more switch positions can be adjusted for any film simulation. The "C" position on the switch will disable it, after which the camera will activate the mode selected by the user in the settings.

One of the disadvantages of the X-T30 was the lack of built-in image stabilization. With the X-T50, the developers have remedied this by adding a built-in (IBIS) five-axis image stabilization system. This makes the camera much more suitable for use when traveling or doing street photography. On the back of the body is a 1.8 million dot viewfinder. The camera has a proprietary X-Processor 5 processor and is powered by a 1200mAh NP-W126S battery, which is quite low considering the higher resolution sensor and improved video capabilities.

The X-T50 can shoot continuous shooting at up to 13fps using an electronic shutter. The performance of the autofocus system is likely to be at the level of the X100 VI, i.e. at a fairly high level. Developers are confident that the main feature of the camera in the ability to imitate film will attract the attention of buyers, as they will be able to get ready to publish in social networks pictures without the need to edit them.

Along with the X-T50, the XF16-50mm F2.8-4.8 R LM WR zoom lens was introduced, a compact and lightweight lens that is perfect for use with the new camera. Note that you can buy this lens separately for $700, so it's more cost-effective to buy it bundled with the camera. Currently, you can pre-order the X-T50 for $1400, and the camera will cost $1800 with the lens. That's $500 more than the price of the X-T30 II at launch and just a few hundred dollars less than the price of the flagship X-T5.
