Welcome to my Fujifilm X-T2 Initial Excitement & Thought I guess lot of you have been wondering what features and functions will Fujifilm implement into the X-T2. Especially the X-Pro 2 has set a high bar. What can differentiate the difference between these two top of the line models.
It is a camera that I have personally been very eager to see to be released, especially it was a memorable moment that I switched from Nikon DSLR to Fujifilm X-T1 for all my working assignments. Being a firm believer of the original X-T1 since the day that was released.
NOTE: Before I start, it’s worth noting that yes, I am an official Fujifilm X-Photographer but that is a non-contract, non-obligation relationship. I can express my comments and opinions freely based on my experience. Fujifilm selected me to have a prototype as they know I shoot exclusively with their cameras and they wanted me to test the camera and give them feedback during that period.
This Fujifilm X-T2 review is based on my few months with the camera. Please note that the camera that I am using in this Fujifilm X-T2 blog post is a prototype/pre-production model that I received directly from Fujifilm Japan. The image quality was not final in all my sample photos posted on this blog. I have had this camera since April 2016. This Fujifilm X-T2 post is based on my real working assignments and how the camera reacts, behaves and delivers rather than a pixel by pixel analysis of the sensor and images. I am not going to dive into too much technical detail, rather, I am focusing at what I think are the key features and what has impressed me, and perhaps, didn’t impress me, with the X-T2 in the time I’ve had it.
Remembering that this Fujifilm X-T2 post is based on a prototype/pre-production model, the engineers are still sharpening some functions. So I might receive more firmwares update before it shipped in September. I will be following this post up once the X-T2 production version was released.
So let’s see what are the new features that differentiate the X-T2 from X-Pro 2.
