For the dedicated landscape & cityscape photographer

Unparalleled image quality
The breathtaking quality of the images from an XT Camera System are sure to impress and inspire others. Capture sweeping landscapes with incredible sharpness throughout the frame and come home to unparalleled flexibility in the files, for infinite creative possibilities.

No distractions
Be in the moment, not immersed in camera settings. With features like Automated Frame Averaging, exposure control and Capture One Inside, you can focus on experiencing and sharing the extraordinary.

Travel-friendly design
The XT Camera System emphasizes a modular and travel-friendly design that fits easily into your lifestyle. The form and aesthetic underline the system’s priorities as a new breed of camera, focused on image quality while masterfully achieving simplicity.

Integrated Movements
The XT Camera System takes full advantage of the Rodenstock optics with 24mm of shift on both X and Y axes. These movements allow you to correct for perspective distortion or create panoramic and stitched images quickly and precisely. The shift position of the camera is integrated into the image file providing immediate feedback for later use.
