Manufacturer description

TOKYO, November 2, 2022 – FUJIFILM Corporation (President and CEO, Representative Director: Teiichi Goto) announces that it will launch of the mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-T5” (X-T5) sequentially after the middle of November, 2022. It is the latest addition to the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras known for their compact and lightweight body and superior image quality based on the company’s proprietary color reproduction technology.

X-T5 features the fifth-generation devices, i.e. the back-illuminated 40.2MP sensor “X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HR”*1 and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 5.” Its superior image quality and high mobility make it a perfect choice for still photography. The compact camera body, weighing just 557g*2, is equipped with advanced features including the five-axis in-body image stabilization (IBIS) of up to 7.0 stops*3, as well as AI-based subject-detection AF and high-speed AF. Other features include three dials: ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation, and three-way tilting LCD monitor delivering greater comfort in photo shooting. The X-T5 will be a perfect companion to cover a wide variety of photographic genres from snapshots / documentary photography, in which its portability is a major asset, to landscape photography and portraiture, which demands superior image quality.

The X-T5 also features the back-illuminated 40.2MP sensor “X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HR” and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 5.” Superior image quality is made possible thanks to the Smooth Skin Effect, in which human skin tone is automatically re-touched, and AI-based high-precision auto white balance. The ability to use ISO125 as standard sensitivity and the high shutter speed of up to 1/180000 seconds provides diverse photographic expressions. The X-T5 boasts a compact body weighing approximately 557g, about 50g lighter than the previous model*4. Other features that facilitate high mobility include the five-axis IBIS of up to 7.0-stops, the AI-based subject detection AF for maintaining a focus on animals and birds, and high-speed AF to attain focus on a subject in as fast as 0.02 seconds.

The X-T5 inherits X-T Series’ signature Center Viewfinder style and dial operation. A 1.84-million-dot three-way tilting LCD monitor is equipped, which makes the shooting in vertical position or at waist level*5 more comfortable. Other features that add comfort to users’ experiences include the ability to record 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 6.2K/30P, the viewfinder magnification of 0.8x, 3.69-million-dot EVF and dual SD-card slots, catering to a wide range of user needs.

Fujifilm has taken the X Series into the fifth generation, introducing the X-H2S (in July this year) and the X-H2 (in September this year) featuring the new image sensor and the high-speed image processing engine. They are positioned as Fujifilm’s double-flagship models and marketed globally. By adding X-T5 which pursues high level of image quality and portability and is optimized for stills, the company continues to broaden the appeals of the X Series further.

1. Product features

(1) Carrying X Series’ fifth generation sensor “X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HR” to deliver superior image quality

  • The X-T5 carries X Series’ fifth generation sensor, the back-illuminated 40.2MP “X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HR.” The use of an improved image processing algorithm delivers advanced image resolution without compromising the S/N ratio.
  • The new sensor can take in more light efficiently thanks to its improved pixel structure, which means ISO125 is available as a standard sensitivity. Exposure time is controlled in high precision, allowing users to set the electronic shutter speed as fast as 1/180000 seconds. This means large-aperture lenses can be used wide open in a greater variety of conditions.
  • The Smooth Skin Effect, which automatically smooths the skin tone, is also featured, reducing post-processing workload required in portrait photography, etc., so that images can be finished at a high degree of perfection much quicker than ever before.
  • The X-T5 features Auto White Balance based on the Deep Learning technology. The AI technology accurately identifies warm light-bulb color cast to adjust white balance for improved accuracy.
  • The X-T5 comes with 19 Film Simulation modes, including “Nostalgic Neg.,” characterized by high saturation and soft tonality. Users can use Film Simulation presets, designed for various subject types and scenes, as if they are choosing photographic films to suit the subject or situations.
  • This camera features the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function, which quadruples image resolution and produces accurate color reproduction. The IBIS mechanism is used to shift the image sensor at high precision to carry out automatic shooting of 20 frames in a single click of the shutter. The dedicated software “Pixel Shift Combiner” processes the captured frames to generate an image containing some 160 million pixels, ideal for commercial photography and digital archiving of cultural assets.
  • The camera supports the HEIF format, which enables recording images with a rich 10-bit color depth despite being approximately 70% of the size of an equivalent JPEG file. It can store high-quality image data more efficiently.

(2) High-performance AF to accurately attain focus on the subject

  • The X-T5 can autofocus in as fast as 0.02 seconds, ensuring to capture a decisive photo opportunity.
  • The subject-detection AF, developed with Deep Learning technology, is capable of detecting animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, airplanes and trains with AI technology. The system automatically tracks a subject while maintaining focus, so that users can concentrate on shutter opportunities and framing.
  • The X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HR sensor has a greater number of phase detection pixels than the previous model, resulting in an improved ability to attain AF-S*6 focus on a subject with high-frequency such as animal furs and fine leaves, enabling accurate focusing in landscape photography and portraiture. The use of an improved AF prediction algorithm offers stable focusing also in the AF-C mode*7.

*6 AF-S autofocuses on a subject when the shutter button is half-pressed, and keeps it locked once the focus is attained.

*7 AF-C continuously maintains focus on a subject within the focus area while the shutter button is half-pressed.

(3) Hardware and design that delivers operational comfort to provide powerful support to users’ content creation

  • The X-T5 features a five-axis IBIS of up to 7.0-stops. Users can shoot hand-held even in low light conditions such as nightscape photography.
  • The X-T5 features three dials on the top panel for controlling ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation. Users can check and change camera settings even before turning it on, bringing operational comfort.
  • The 1.84-million-dot three-way tilting LCD monitor is newly equipped allowing the shooting in vertical position or at the waist level, frequently used when shooting stills.
  • The camera is equipped with a high-magnification 3.69-million-dot EVF with 0.8x magnification. The viewfinder provides stellar visibility thanks to the improved suppression of parallax and distortion, which typically occurs when an eye position becomes displaced while using the viewfinder.
  • Lightening the parts of IBIS and EVF has resulted in a compact body that weighs just 557g. This is coupled with the camera’s weather-resistant structure and ability to operate at temperatures as low as -10℃ to allow users to take the X-T5 into any conditions with peace of mind.

(4) Extensive video features including 6.2K/30P capability

  • The X-T5 can record 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 6.2K/30P on an SD card inserted in the camera. It features the 4K HQ mode, which uses 6.2K over-sampling to produce high-quality 4K video. The dual memory card slots for SD cards is also featured to deliver video in superior image resolution.
  • The X-T5 features F-Log2 for recording video in enriched tonality, adding freedom in post-production creativity.
  • Combined with a compatible HDMI recording device, ATMOS NINJA V+*8 or Blackmagic Design’s Video Assist 12G*9, 12-bit RAW video output from X-T5 can be recorded as Apple ProRes RAW*10 or Blackmagic RAW at resolutions and frame rates of up to 6K and 30 frames per second.

*8 An integrated monitor and recorder by ATOMOS.

*9 An integrated monitor and recorder by Blackmagic Design.

Cannot perform comparison

Cannot compare the lens to itself.

Image stabilizer

A technology used for reducing or even eliminating the effects of camera shake. Gyro sensors inside the lens detect camera shake and pass the data to a microcomputer. Then an image stabilization group of elements controlled by the microcomputer moves inside the lens and compensates camera shake in order to keep the image static on the imaging sensor or film.

The technology allows to increase the shutter speed by several stops and shoot handheld in such lighting conditions and at such focal lengths where without image stabilizer you have to use tripod, decrease the shutter speed and/or increase the ISO setting which can lead to blurry and noisy images.

Original name

Lens name as indicated on the lens barrel (usually on the front ring). With lenses from film era, may vary slightly from batch to batch.

Format

Format refers to the shape and size of film or image sensor.

35mm is the common name of the 36x24mm film format or image sensor format. It has an aspect ratio of 3:2, and a diagonal measurement of approximately 43mm. The name originates with the total width of the 135 film which was the primary medium of the format prior to the invention of the full frame digital SLR. Historically the 35mm format was sometimes called small format to distinguish it from the medium and large formats.

APS-C is an image sensor format approximately equivalent in size to the film negatives of 25.1x16.7mm with an aspect ratio of 3:2.

Medium format is a film format or image sensor format larger than 36x24mm (35mm) but smaller than 4x5in (large format).

Angle of view

Angle of view describes the angular extent of a given scene that is imaged by a camera. It is used interchangeably with the more general term field of view.

As the focal length changes, the angle of view also changes. The shorter the focal length (eg 18mm), the wider the angle of view. Conversely, the longer the focal length (eg 55mm), the smaller the angle of view.

A camera's angle of view depends not only on the lens, but also on the sensor. Imaging sensors are sometimes smaller than 35mm film frame, and this causes the lens to have a narrower angle of view than with 35mm film, by a certain factor for each sensor (called the crop factor).

This website does not use the angles of view provided by lens manufacturers, but calculates them automatically by the following formula: 114.6 * arctan (21.622 / CF * FL),

where:

CF – crop-factor of a sensor,
FL – focal length of a lens.

Mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a camera body and a lens.

A lens mount may be a screw-threaded type, a bayonet-type, or a breech-lock type. Modern camera lens mounts are of the bayonet type, because the bayonet mechanism precisely aligns mechanical and electrical features between lens and body, unlike screw-threaded mounts.

Lens mounts of competing manufacturers (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony etc.) are always incompatible. In addition to the mechanical and electrical interface variations, the flange focal distance can also be different.

The flange focal distance (FFD) is the distance from the mechanical rear end surface of the lens mount to the focal plane.

Lens construction

Lens construction – a specific arrangement of elements and groups that make up the optical design, including type and size of elements, type of used materials etc.

Element - an individual piece of glass which makes up one component of a photographic lens. Photographic lenses are nearly always built up of multiple such elements.

Group – a cemented together pieces of glass which form a single unit or an individual piece of glass. The advantage is that there is no glass-air surfaces between cemented together pieces of glass, which reduces reflections.

Focal length

The focal length is the factor that determines the size of the image reproduced on the focal plane, picture angle which covers the area of the subject to be photographed, depth of field, etc.

Speed

The largest opening or stop at which a lens can be used is referred to as the speed of the lens. The larger the maximum aperture is, the faster the lens is considered to be. Lenses that offer a large maximum aperture are commonly referred to as fast lenses, and lenses with smaller maximum aperture are regarded as slow.

In low-light situations, having a wider maximum aperture means that you can shoot at a faster shutter speed or work at a lower ISO, or both.

Closest focusing distance

The minimum distance from the focal plane (film or sensor) to the subject where the lens is still able to focus.

Closest working distance

The distance from the front edge of the lens to the subject at the maximum magnification.

Magnification ratio

Determines how large the subject will appear in the final image. For example, a magnification ratio of 1:1 means that the image of the subject formed on the film or sensor will be the same size as the subject in real life. For this reason, a 1:1 ratio is often called "life-size".

Manual focus override in autofocus mode

Allows to perform final focusing manually after the camera has locked the focus automatically. Note that you don't have to switch camera and/or lens to manual focus mode.

Manual focus override in autofocus mode

Allows to perform final focusing manually after the camera has locked the focus automatically. Note that you don't have to switch camera and/or lens to manual focus mode.

Electronic manual focus override is performed in the following way: half-press the shutter button, wait until the camera has finished the autofocusing and then focus manually without releasing the shutter button using the focusing ring.

Manual diaphragm

The diaphragm must be stopped down manually by rotating the detent aperture ring.

Preset diaphragm

The lens has two rings, one is for pre-setting, while the other is for normal diaphragm adjustment. The first ring must be set at the desired aperture, the second ring then should be fully opened for focusing, and turned back for stop down to the pre-set value.

Semi-automatic diaphragm

The lens features spring mechanism in the diaphragm, triggered by the shutter release, which stops down the diaphragm to the pre-set value. The spring needs to be reset manually after each exposure to re-open diaphragm to its maximum value.

Automatic diaphragm

The camera automatically closes the diaphragm down during the shutter operation. On completion of the exposure, the diaphragm re-opens to its maximum value.

Fixed diaphragm

The aperture setting is fixed at F/ on this lens, and cannot be adjusted.

Number of blades

As a general rule, the more blades that are used to create the aperture opening in the lens, the rounder the out-of-focus highlights will be.

Some lenses are designed with curved diaphragm blades, so the roundness of the aperture comes not from the number of blades, but from their shape. However, the fewer blades the diaphragm has, the more difficult it is to form a circle, regardless of rounded edges.

At maximum aperture, the opening will be circular regardless of the number of blades.

Weight

Excluding case or pouch, caps and other detachable accessories (lens hood, close-up adapter, tripod adapter etc.).

Maximum diameter x Length

Excluding case or pouch, caps and other detachable accessories (lens hood, close-up adapter, tripod adapter etc.).

For lenses with collapsible design, the length is indicated for the working (retracted) state.

Weather sealing

A rubber material which is inserted in between each externally exposed part (manual focus and zoom rings, buttons, switch panels etc.) to ensure it is properly sealed against dust and moisture.

Lenses that accept front mounted filters typically do not have gaskets behind the filter mount. It is recommended to use a filter for complete weather resistance when desired.

Fluorine coating

Helps keep lenses clean by reducing the possibility of dust and dirt adhering to the lens and by facilitating cleaning should the need arise. Applied to the outer surface of the front and/or rear lens elements over multi-coatings.

Filters

Lens filters are accessories that can protect lenses from dirt and damage, enhance colors, minimize glare and reflections, and add creative effects to images.

Lens hood

A lens hood or lens shade is a device used on the end of a lens to block the sun or other light source in order to prevent glare and lens flare. Flare occurs when stray light strikes the front element of a lens and then bounces around within the lens. This stray light often comes from very bright light sources, such as the sun, bright studio lights, or a bright white background.

The geometry of the lens hood can vary from a plain cylindrical or conical section to a more complex shape, sometimes called a petal, tulip, or flower hood. This allows the lens hood to block stray light with the higher portions of the lens hood, while allowing more light into the corners of the image through the lowered portions of the hood.

Lens hoods are more prominent in long focus lenses because they have a smaller viewing angle than that of wide-angle lenses. For wide angle lenses, the length of the hood cannot be as long as those for telephoto lenses, as a longer hood would enter the wider field of view of the lens.

Lens hoods are often designed to fit onto the matching lens facing either forward, for normal use, or backwards, so that the hood may be stored with the lens without occupying much additional space. In addition, lens hoods can offer some degree of physical protection for the lens due to the hood extending farther than the lens itself.

Teleconverters

Teleconverters increase the effective focal length of lenses. They also usually maintain the closest focusing distance of lenses, thus increasing the magnification significantly. A lens combined with a teleconverter is normally smaller, lighter and cheaper than a "direct" telephoto lens of the same focal length and speed.

Teleconverters are a convenient way of enhancing telephoto capability, but it comes at a cost − reduced maximum aperture. Also, since teleconverters magnify every detail in the image, they logically also magnify residual aberrations of the lens.

Lens caps

Scratched lens surfaces can spoil the definition and contrast of even the finest lenses. Lens covers are the best and most inexpensive protection available against dust, moisture and abrasion. Safeguard lens elements - both front and rear - whenever the lens is not in use.
