Just hours after Canon announced the EOS R6 Mark II, Fujifilm fires back with the X-T5. Aside from utilizing a fifth-generation 40.2-megapixel X-Trans CMOS HR sensor, Fujifilm claims that the X-T5 is smaller than the three previous X-T cameras–that makes it roughly the size of an X-T2.
With its sensor, the X-T5 can capture up to 15FPS with the mechanical shutter and up to 20FPS with the electronic shutter (though you get a crop on that mode). The mechanical shutter is rated for 500,000 cycles, and has a maximum speed of 1/8000 a second. You also get a five-axis IBIS that provides up to seven stops of compensation with supported Fujifilm lenses.
The other key upgrade of the X-T5 is its autofocus system, which inherits some of the features found on the X-H2. This involves “deep learning”, where the X-T5 can recognize objects like animals, birds, vehicles, bikes, airplanes, and trains. Having more phase detection pixels also helps it focus better on fine-textured subjects.
Regarding video, the X-T5 can shoot 6.2K video at 30p in 4:2:2 10-bit color, where it oversamples video in 4K HQ mode. Fujifilm claims this gives the X-T5 up to 13-stops of dynamic range when captured to F-Log 2. When paired with an ATOMOS external recorder, the X-T5 can shoot RAW video, Blackmagic RAW, and 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW at up to 6.2k and up to 29.97 FPS.
The X-T5 is priced at Php 109,990 for the body only and will be available soon in the Philippines.
