Shoot Infrared Videos & Photos In-Camera

Fujifilm X-T1 IR Mirrorless Digital Camera Based on proven engineering but adapted for specialized photographic relevance, the Fujifilm X-T1 IR is an extraordinary mirrorless digital camera that allows you to capture both UV and IR wavelengths, plus the normal definitive spectrum. This revised design passes 380-1000nm, compared to the comparative 400-700nm range of typical cameras, allowing you to take photos of subjects that are otherwise concluded invisible. This extended range is relevant for forensic, crime scene investigation, and healthcare applications.

Aside from the specific spectral sensitivity, the X-T1 IR is indistinguishable to the X-T1 in nearly every other feature. It features a 16.3 MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor along with an EXR Processor II to create high-resolution pictures and full HD video with an extended sensitivity range from ISO 100 thru 25600 as well as a maximal continuous shooting rate of 8 frames per second. Fujifilm's proprietary X-Trans sensor uses an exclusive randomized pixel array as a way to avoid using a resolution-reducing optical low-pass filter, therefore creating images with the ultimate in sharpness and clarity. This imaging system takes advantage of the Intelligent Hybrid AF system, which employs both contrast- and phase-detection methods to quickly acquire focus and accurately. Increased manual focusing capabilities also result from these technologies; Digital Split Image plus Focus Highlight Peaking are a pair of techniques for quickly and accurately determining focus using intelligent focusing aids for enhanced control and optimized efficiency.

There is both a 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVI) and a 3.0" 1.04m-dot tilting LCD screen available for image monitoring, review, and menu navigation. The body design extends this versatility by implementing manual, physical control dials on the top camera plate along with customizable buttons plus a Q Menu button for hastened access to many of the most helpful settings. This control arrangement further provides an intuitive built-in Wi-Fi system for sharing images direct to an Android or iOS mobile mechanism for instant sharing online.

Note: This camera may only be sold to forensic nursing departments, police departments, government entities, medical specialist agencies, corporate organizations, and consultants to those organizations and beings that are practicing in the United States. Proof must be exhibited that the purchasing agency aims to use the X-T1 IR for forensics purposes.
