25 Jul Fujifilm overhauls autofocus and EVF to reveal X-T2 flagship – Amateur Photographer
The X-T2 is a weather-sealed model boasting improved EVF and an autofocus system designed to make it easier to shoot moving subjects in tricky conditions.
Commenting on the improved AF, Fuji claims: ‘The high-speed processing power and the use of improved algorithms have significantly improved the basic autofocus performance, improving the focusing performance on points of light, low-contrast objects and subjects with fine and delicate textures such as bird feathers and animal fur, which have previously been the weakness of phase detection AF.’
Contrast detect AF has also been improved, doubling the data readout speed, with the ability to focus in low light, down to -3EV. The number of focusing points has been raised to 325, allowing users to select from 91 to 325 points.
