On Thursday and Friday last week I had the privilege of being part of the European launch of the brand new Fujifilm X-T2 in Paris and at the Le Mans Classic. Fujifilm invited 200 guests from all over Europe to travel to Paris for the official launch of the camera with a press conference and then a chance to have a ‘hands on’ session with the X-T2 over a buffet and a few drinks.
After the formal part of the evening John, myself and several other X Photographers headed by bus to Le Mans so we were on site for the second day of the event where we would be hosting groups of 15 to 20 guests to show them how to get the best out of the new features of the X-T2 at the Le Mans Classic.
Fujifilm had asked me to provide some text and images for a special X-T2 guide to Le Mans Classic, which they then designed and printed to give to each of the guests. I was very pleased to see the result, which had a special introduction from yours truly.
On arrival at the circuit we X Photographers had a quick tour of the areas we would be taking the guests when they arrived at midday from Paris. Our vehicles were World War 2 era Wiley Jeeps, which must be the coolest media shuttles I have ever had
