Apart from digital camera, there is now a need for an infrared camera, so Fujifilm has announced an eye catching IR camera refining the supportive human eye vision of 390nm-700nm to the range of 380nm-1,000nm. Besides X-series older Fuji's, it is an invention which captures the spectrum of Visible, Ultraviolet and Infrared light with its mirrorless camera that has an X-ray impact.
Why there is a need for Infrared inspite of having high pixel cameras in smartphones? As we know the visibility spectrum and the features the camera nowadays supports, but a smartphone camera till now doesn't support the visibility apart from the human eye vision. Moreover, there are filters in the digital shooter, but this IR cam removes these filters and also has a replacement over the sensor filters which provides a huge wavelength of light to filter the image even makes it clearer as ever.
Is it really useful?
Yes it is, as X-T1's artistic approach to hike fine art and its haunting colors with sensitivity keeps it simple but attractive for Astrophotography. Crime scene investigators can have a great use to detect objects in pocket and also to analyze a wide range of temperature. Doctors and scientists can make a wide use by detecting the blood tissues, injuries and stains more specifically. It is therefore helpful in sectors which are to be focused wisely and seriously.
X-T1 also gives you the ability to see through clothing, but in case of the thin fairly fabric you need not to worry for the folks using it as it is of doctors, scientists and crime scene investigators. It can create an effect of the clouds to cotton candy and can emulsify the images to the trippy one.
Fuji's X-T1 IR's expected release month is October for $1,699.95 and an extra privileged premium of $400 on launch price as figured till date. It's an immense pleasure for all to have one with such natural dreamlike image shooting feature along with the infrared vision support to capture even smaller objects outdoor.
