A new Fujifilm camera has many professional photographers excited. It's a really powerful mirrorless camera with one extra-special feature built in for some unique and interesting photographs.
There's just one problem. That extra-special feature could let the camera see through some types of clothing.
The Fujifilm X-T1 IR will be an upgrade to the company's X-T1 16-megapixel Wi-Fi-equipped digital camera. Wired reports that its new feature is capturing infrared light, which is invisible to us.
Capturing infrared light in photographs makes for beautiful and fascinating images, but it may also be able to capture what's underneath your clothes, especially if they're thin.
Infrared photography can pick up blood stains, invisible-to-the-human-eye markings on paper, and deep tissue injuries. Fujifilm says the $1,700 X-T1 IR is intended for forensic analysts, scientists and healthcare professionals.
Still, if you see an X-T1 IR pointed at you once the camera is released to the public in October, keep in mind you may be more exposed than you think.
