07 Jul Fujifilm X-T2: First Impressions

FUJIFILM has announced the ultimate mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-T2” that delivers creative perfection.

The X-T2 offers outstanding image quality with FUJIFILM’s colour reproduction formulated over 80 years, advanced AutoFocus functions and 4K high definition video.

FUJIFILM Corporation has announced that, on September 8, 2016, the company will release the FUJIFILM X-T2 – the ultimate mirrorless digital camera that uses advanced technologies to achieve premium image quality, outstanding operability and beautiful design reminiscent of traditional cameras.

The X-T2 combines the sensor and image processing engine developed by Fujifilm, with an ultra-sharp range of FUJINON lenses for excellent image resolution. Fujifilm’s colour-reproduction technology, formulated over 80 years, delivers images of unparalleled quality and realism, recording a subject’s textures, three-dimensional feel and even the atmosphere surrounding it.

The X-T2’s compact and lightweight camera body is also dust-resistant, water-resistant and capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C. Its autofocus and electronic viewfinder performance have both been substantially improved, making it more adaptable than ever before at shooting a moving subject under difficult conditions, such as sports or wildlife photography, which had previously been considered difficult with mirrorless cameras.

For the first time in the X Series, the X-T2 supports 4K video recording. The Film Simulation modes, used for still images, can be applied to video to easily produce premium-quality footage.
