Section One has printed a video on its YouTube channel teasing some type of replace for its XT Digicam system.
It’s tough to inform precisely what Section One is alluding to within the 18 seconds of teaser footage, however from what I can inform, it seems as if the XT Digicam proven off is just about unchanged from the one at the moment obtainable. What’s new, nonetheless, is a silver knob atop the Rodenstock HR lens, which suggests we should always see some tilt performance added.
The Rodenstock HR lenses obtainable for the Section One XT have already got shift by as a lot as 12mm up, down, left and proper. However the skill to tilt is notably absent, except you go along with a third-party lens from Cambo with built-in tilt performance. If the teaser video is exhibiting off new tilt performance, it’s in all probability protected to imagine that, just like the shift information, the lean information would get saved to the picture file for referencing later if wanted.

Whereas Section One’s XF digicam system is extra designed for the studio, the XT is deemed a ‘area digicam,’ meant extra for panorama pictures. In truth, Section One goes as far as to say it’s ‘The world’s solely digicam devoted to panorama pictures.’ Whereas we regularly look to tilt/shift lenses for architectural pictures, adjusting for each tilt and shift in panorama pictures might help with capturing panorama pictures without having to maneuver the lens and assist appropriate for perspective in-camera to maintain vertical strains from converging in scenes.
There could also be extra to the announcement as nicely, but when so, it doesn’t look like seen within the brief teaser. Section One says the ‘thrilling information’ will drop ‘subsequent week.’
