Fujifilm shooters, get your wallets ready -- the camera maker's latest compact interchangeable-lens camera is about as full-featured as they come in this price range. The X-T1 is the latest X-Mount cam in the company's lineup, which includes models such as the X-M1 and X-E2, and it's compatible with the same suite of Fujinon XF and XC lenses. It's set to ship next month for $1,300 body only, or $1,700 with an 18-55mm f/2.8-4 kit lens. The banner features here include a 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor, a large 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder, a refreshed UI and an EXR Processor II, which enables a half-second start-up time, 0.05-second shutter lag and a half-second shooting interval, along with an 8 fps burst mode that includes tracking autofocus.

Another significant addition, of course, is the weather-resistant build. When paired with a weather-resistant lens, the X-T1 can hold up to dust and water, and it's freeze-proof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius), should your latest assignment bring you to the arctic tundra in the dead of winter. Additionally, the 3-inch, 1.04M-dot tilting LCD is reinforced with tempered glass, but assuming you're using a neck strap properly, there's no excuse for letting your X-T1 collide with the earth. Finally, it's the first of its kind to support the new SDXC UHS-II format, which yields write speeds double that of a traditional SD card. There's also WiFi connectivity, with instant transfers and remote shooting via the Fujifilm Camera Remote app. Three new weather-resistant lenses, including an 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, a 16-55mm f/2.8 and a 50-140mm f/2.8, will launch as well, though we don't have pricing and availability information to share at this point.
