Fuji XT5 Announced
As mentioned in a previous newsletter, this is the announcement I’ve been waiting for. Fuji has released the X-T5, and I’m pleased to see it has a few features on my wish list:
- Firstly, the sensor has been increased. It’s up from the 26Mpixels in my X-T3 to 40Mpixels which is ample for most situations.
- Next is a larger battery which I’m hoping translates into more shots per charge. As my X-T3 batteries have aged, I’m finding they don’t hold enough charge for a day. I usually need several, even for short trips. Compare this with my Panasonic G9 where I can shoot all day on a single battery.
- The X-T5 also has in body image stabilisation. This is important as I have a great collection of Fuji prime lenses which I don’t use often. They produce amazing quality but unlike my zoom lenses, aren’t stabilised. Having the stabilised body means that I’ll begin using them for my landscape photography.
- The controls and layout haven’t changed much from the previous XT models. This is great as it reduces the learning curve and means that I’m not fumbling around, trying to work the camera.
Based on these features, I may soon be upgrading my X-T3.
