Tilt screen for the X-T1!

First of all, let me tell you this: this rumor comes from a source who was right in the past and who also told me over two months ago that the weather sealed X (X-T1) will have a vintage SLR-design (inspired by the FujicaST). It has not yet been upgraded to trusted source… but if it’s right with the tilt-screen and the retro SLR design, then it will be upgraded.

So here is the rumor:

The source told me that the X-T1 will have a tilt screen!

And a couple of days ago another FR-reader had a talk with a Fuji rep at the CES. He wrote me this email:

“At CES. Speaking at new camera and it was implied to be announced in weeks. […] When I mentioned that the Sony had a “tilty-floppy” screen, he grabbed another model in the Fuji line and said, “We know how to do a flip screen. What makes you think we don’t like flip screens?”. When asked if the new camera would have such a screen, there were two answers… “Maaaybe…”. And “What new camera?”

Here is the poll some of you asked for in the comments to older posts.

Would you like a tilt-screen on the X-T1?
