The Fujifilm X-T10 might be one of the industry's strongest releases in years, offering the qualities of top of the line mirrorless shooters with a classic look. But this latest spin-off, the Fujifilm X-T1 IR, packs an interesting new eyebrow-raising trick up its sleeve: it's able to capture infrared light. While infrared photography has some less-than-classy uses, the X-T1 IR is designed for professionals of all types - from artful shooters looking for dreamlike images of landscapes and subjects as well as crime-scene professionals looking for some extra clues that aren't readily seen by the naked eye. The brand claims the camera can capture light at wavelengths up to 1,000nm as well as the usual visible light spectrum the human eye sees. Beyond its superhuman quality, the X-T1 IR is similar to the X-T10, with a 16-megapixel APS-C sensor with fast autofocus, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a weatherproof magnesium-alloy body. The Fujiflim X-T1IR is slated for an October release with a similar price point.
