The Fujifilm X-t1 Saved The Future Of Fujifilm’s X Mount

Fuji executive says,

 “The Fujifilm X-T1 was made with the future of Fujifilm’s X mount in mind.”

According to a company representative, the Fujifilm X-T1 was made with the future of Fujifilm’s X mount. This shows that when it came out eight years ago, there was a lot at stake.

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 was the first X-series camera with a lens that could be changed. It came out in 2012. But the Fujifilm X-T1, which came out in 2014, was the camera that made or broke the format. Because of this, many people think that the Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T4 are the most important cameras in the line.

“The X-Pro1 is impressive, but if you have to pick one, it’s the X-T1,” 

Takashi Ueno, general manager of Fujifilm Imaging’s New Product Strategy Group, told Japan’s Map Camera (translated by DC Life) when asked which camera made an impression on him.

After the X-Pro1, Fujifilm came out with the X-E1, X-M1, and X-A1 cameras, as well as the original X100 and X100S compact cameras and a half-dozen 23′′ fixed lens cameras. On the other hand, Ueno says that “everyone worked together” on the X-T1.

“The X-T1 was made in this way because the future of Fujifilm’s X mount depended on it. Thanks to everyone, the X-T1 has been well received and sales have been good, so we’re where we are now. The X-T1 might not have made it possible for this interview to happen. That’s how much I thought about it because of the X-T1.

After the X-M1, Fujifilm released the Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-A7, and the much-loved Fujifilm X100V.

But the future of the X-Mount and Fujifilm’s camera business could have been very different without the Fujifilm X-T1.
