With its 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor and high-performance X Processor Pro image processing engine, the X-T2 fulfills the high standards of the FUJIFILM X system. The addition of 4K/2K video takes it one step beyond. With a string of features including high speed 1/32000 shutter, Intelligent Hybrid Phase detection AF, weather resistant body, 3-way tilting 3.0” LCD, 2.36 Million dots EVF and dual SD UHS-II memory card slots, the X-T2 makes a fitting successor to the popular FUJIFILM X-T1.
24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III Sensor
The X-T2 features a 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor for outstanding image quality. Its highly random pixel array effectively reduces moiré and false colours without the use of an optical low-pass filter. When combined with an XF lens, the sensor delivers images with a perceived resolution far greater than the number of pixels used. Other features include outstanding read speed, high-speed continuous shooting, high-precision AF tracking, highly faster liveview refresh rate and superb video recording.
Excellent Image Processing from X-Processor Pro
The X-Processor Pro image processing engine is approximately four times faster than the previous model. The increased built-in memory and enhanced computational power bring out the maximum capabilities of the X-Trans CMOS III sensor. It produces high quality images and improves response times for shorter delays between shots, reduced shutter-release time lag and greater AF precision. The engine also delivers faster Live View refresh rates and reduces blackout time in continuous shooting mode.
Film Simulation Modes
Incorporating knowledge developed from over 80 years of photographic film manufacturing, the X-T2's Film Simulation modes allow you to enjoy different colour tones and rich gradations as if actually swapping films. A total of 15 modes are available, including PROVIA and Velvia to reproduce vibrant colours, plus ACROS for fine-detailed monochrome images. The Grain Effect function can be combined with all Film Simulation modes to add a textured look and deliver a greater range of artistic effects.
Larger High-speed and High-precision Phase Detection AF Area
AF performance has been improved in a number of keys areas. The fast and accurate phase detection AF now covers a larger part of the frame and has been optimized in the area where users are most likely to position the main subject. At the same time, the X-T2 boasts significant focusing improvements on small highlights, low contrast subjects and subjects with fine textures, which have previously caused problems for focal plane phase detection AF. Contrast detection AF, which excels in low light conditions, has also received a performance boost, with the ability to accurately focus in light levels as low as -3EV. The camera also refocuses more regularly during the slow burst mode in AF-C.
Eye Detection AF Automatically Detects Human Eyes
Choose Face Detection to automatically detect human faces, or turn on Eye Detection AF to automatically detect and accurately focus on human eyes for successful portraits with a shallow depth of field. You can also define the area of priority focus, for example right or left eye, or the eye closer to the camera. These functions have been upgraded for improved accuracy to a level that will impress professional photographers. They are particularly effective when shooting with the 56mm / 56mmAPD or 90mm lenses.
Focus Lever to Instantly Change the Focusing Point
The focus area can be changed in eight directions using the X-T2's joystick-like Focus Lever: up/down, right/left and diagonally. This allows users to make quick changes to the focus area for accurate focusing after composing an image. This feature is useful not only to shift the AF points during autofocusing, but also to quickly choose the area to be enlarged in MF Assist mode during manual focusing.
High-resolution Real Time Viewfinder with a 0.77x Magnification Ratio
The 2.36-million-dot high-resolution organic EL electronic viewfinder has a magnification ratio of 0.77x, a horizontal viewing angle of 31 degrees, and a display time lag of just 0.005 seconds. The viewfinder, which is 2 times brighter than the previous model, also features an automatic brightness adjustment function so it's easy to see in all conditions - even intense backlighting. It completely eliminates moiré or false colours, and boasts performance comparable to an optical viewfinder, but with the added advantage of displaying a live view that reflects exposure settings.
Up to approx.100fps EVF Refresh Rate
As standard the EVF refreshes at a rate of approx. 60fps, but in Boost mode this jumps to approx.100fps, which continuously displays even fast-moving subjects smoothly to deliver a performance comparable to that of an optical viewfinder. The fast refresh rate is maintained even in low light for easy framing during night shooting.
Continuous Shooting of 11fps
Continuous shooting performance has also been improved, enabling up to 11fps when using the mechanical shutter* and 5fps in the Live View mode. The viewfinder blackout time is now less than half that of the previous model. This means that you can track a fast-moving subject more easily for an extended period of time during continuous shooting. The combination of advanced continuous shooting options and EVF performance deliver continuous AF-C shooting never previously thought possible with mirrorless cameras.
Solid body with Resistance to Dust, Moisture and Low Temperatures
The X-T2's body is made of magnesium alloy. Despite being compact and lightweight, it is both solid and highly durable. The body is also weather-sealed in 63 points to achieve a high level of resistance to dust and moisture. Couple this with its ability to work in temperatures down to -10°C and you'll see the camera is ready for anything. Similar weather-sealing is applied to the dust-resistant and water-resistant lenses and the Power Booster Grip to provide weather resistance across the entire system.
Dual SD Card Slots
The body features dual slots to accommodate two SD cards for highly reliable data storage. Both Slot 1 and Slot 2 are compatible with UHS-II standards for excellent write speeds. You can use the slots for sequential recording, backup, sorting to record RAW files in Slot 1 and JPEG files in Slot 2, or assign one of the slots for video storage.
Three-direction Tilting LCD Screen
The X-T2 features a premium LCD screen that can tilt in three directions. Tilt it up and down when shooting in landscape, and upward when shooting in portrait. The screen remains positioned on the optical axis of the lens for easier high-angle and low-angle shooting. The 3-inch LCD has 1.04 million dots and uses toughened glass. When not tilted, it fits flush to the body.
Key exposure controls are dial-based, such as setting the shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, Drive Mode and Metering Mode. This means settings can easily be changed, even when the camera is turned off. Selected controls also feature lock and release buttons to enhance overall operation.
Exposure Compensation Dial with the C Position
The frequently-used exposure compensation function can be operated using the top-plate dial for adjustments in 1/3 increments up to ±3EV. Select the C position for exposure compensation of up to ±5EV using the camera's Command Dial. When using the Power Booster Grip featuring the Command Dial, select the C position to access exposure compensation with the camera held in the portrait orientation.
Highly-durable Focal Plane Shutter with a Maximum Speed of 1/8000 sec.
The X-T2 features a focal plane shutter with a maximum speed of 1/8000 sec, flash sync speed of 1/250 sec and durability of 150,000 shots. It also supports an ultra-fast, silent-operating electronic shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32,000 sec that allows you to shoot at wide apertures, even in bright sunlight.
Outstanding 4K HD Video
The X-T2 captures approx. 1.8x the required number of pixels for 4K video (4K / 30p, 25p, 24p) and 2.4x the required data for full HD video (1080 / 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p, 24p) to deliver superior movie quality free from moiré or artifacts. It also supports the high bit rate of 100Mbps.
Film Simulation on Video Recording
Film Simulation modes are available during video recording. Movie shooters can enjoy extra creativity, without the need for lengthy post-production, including monochrome video in ACROS and documentary-themed tones in Classic Chrome. You can also change settings such as aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation while recording video.
Simultaneous HDMI Output to an External Monitor
Video can be output via HDMI during recording, allowing you to simultaneously check footage on the camera's LCD monitor or EVF and an external monitor. The data can even be recorded onto an external recorder as you film in the uncompressed format. As for 4K movie, you can choose log gamma "F-Log" to record a wider dynamic range than normal video mode.
