My travelling companion Alfie getting to grips with my brand new Fujifilm X-T2. The Fuji has received plenty of gold star reviews but – although that’s important – ultimately it all comes down to whether it sits comfortably in your hands and is in tune with your photographic desires. In other words: Can I make it sing for me? As of now, all the signs are positive and I can’t wait to start working with it!
The Fujifilm X-T2 is a DSLR-style weather-resistant mirrorless camera announced by Fujifilm on July 7, 2016. It uses the Fujifilm X-mount and is a successor to the Fujifilm X-T1. Sales of the camera began on September 8 2016. Mechanical dials are provided for key operation, including the shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, drive modes and metering modes. The settings can be adjusted even when the camera is turned off, so that you can be always ready for the next shot. For the prevention of operation errors, the dials for shutter speed and ISO sensitivity are equipped with a Lock & Release button, and are designed with extra height for operability improvement from FUJIFILM X-T1.
The flagship model in the X Series, the X-T2 uses unique colour reproduction technology to deliver outstanding image quality. Headline features include a startup time of 0.3 seconds, shutter release time lag of 0.045 seconds*, highly accurate AF system that focuses in as little as 0.06 seconds, plus it is the first X Series model to support 4K video. It is the ultimate mirrorless digital camera offering professional image quality and superb functionality thanks to its unique technologies.
