Fuji executive says,

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

A company official has said that the Fujifilm X-T1 was made with the future of Fujifilm’s X mount in mind. This shows that there was a lot at stake when it came out eight years ago.

The Fujifilm X-Pro1, which came out in 2012, was the first X-series camera with a lens that could be changed. However, the Fujifilm X-T1, which came out in 2014, was the camera that made or broke the format. Because of this, the Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T4 are often seen as the most important cameras in the lineup.

“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 released the X-E1, X-M1, and X-A1 cameras, as well as the original X100 and X100S compact cameras and a half-dozen fixed lens 23″ cameras. Ueno, however, says that

“the X-T1 was the camera where everyone worked as one.”

“In this way, the X-T1 was made because the future of Fujifilm’s X mount was at stake. Thanks to everyone, the X-T1 has been well received and sales have been good, so we are where we are now. This interview might not have happened without the X-T1. That’s how much the X-T1 made me think about it.

The Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-A7, and the much-loved Fujifilm X100V are just a few of the cameras that came after the X-M1 (opens in new tab).

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