We live in the world where the image speaks a thousand words. Spoken and written language are slowly fading out, leaving room for a new emerging form of communication: photography. The photo industry has evolved to the point where photo cameras can now perform tasks we only used to dream about. There are infinite ways in which we can manipulate a picture, change its perspective, capture its essence and turn it into a state-of-the-art piece of image.
Fuji Film announced the release of its latest camera in X-series, the X-T1IR, which will be extremely useful to various professionals. Fuji Film has thought of putting its entire expertise in this new product which is extremely versatile, performant and advanced in functions, features and image manipulation techniques. The product is not dedicated exclusively to artists and photo journalists, but also to crime scene investigators, astrophotographers, health care professionals and scientists.
As far as we know, Fuji’s X-T1 R shares many of the same specs as its predecessor. The difference is that the standard IR cut filter has been removed and the sensor includes what we know as reflective coating. Also, the sensor encompassed in the mirrorless camera is designed to capture light from a wider range of the spectrum. This is very good news for crime scene professionals and investigators, as the camera can capture infrared and ultraviolet light, which is invisible to the human eye.
The highly performant device can capture infrared light at wavelengths from 380 nm and up to 1.000 nm, along with see ultraviolet light from a 380 nm to 400 nm range. This is quite fantastic and way more capable than the naked eye can see. For comparison, our eyes are designed to only see 390 nm to 700 nm.
Crime scene investigators will find it easier to pick up clues at crime scenes and artists will have the possibility to play with all the features and come up with highly original, authentic results. The camera allows us to see all the differences in temperature, the filters are designed to penetrate opaque surfaces, such as thin clothing, in order to reveal a certain object in a pocket. For crime scene investigators, this is the next step in research, as the camera can easily be used to analyze bloodstains and can be highly useful to healthcare professionals by highlighting deep-tissue injuries.
Fuji takes photography to another level, offering the chance to high professionals to have a better insight on their work and more efficiently manipulate all information they hold. Fuji launches infrared camera for a wide range of experts that are invited to benefit from all the new image techniques and improve their expertise, vision and performance.
