The Fujifilm X-T2 is the ultimate mirrorless camera offering premium still and movie image quality from its 24.3-megapixel sensor, outstanding DSLR-style handling and advanced autofocus. The heart of the X-T2 is the 24.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor that is low-pass filter free to enable image quality comparable to full-frame cameras. Working with the sensor is Fujifilm’s X-Processor Pro high-speed image processing engine to deliver excellent quality stills with outstanding colour reproduction, smooth tonal gradation and low noise levels even at high ISO settings.

Fujifilm has worked especially hard on the X-T2’s autofocusing ability with an improved algorithm to cope effectively with low-contrast, fine-detailed subjects like bird feathers and animal fur, and its skills with fast-moving objects have been significantly enhanced. Five presets give the user the option to tailor the autofocus system’s parameters to the subject being photographed and there is a sixth custom preset option too, so you can dial in your own preferences. While the X-T2 with its mechanical shutter is capable of shooting at eight frames-per- second, things can get even speedier. Add the

optional Vertical Power Booster Grip VPB- XT2 and this increases to a stunning 11fps. A Boost mode on the grip gives even more responsive performance with shorter shutter lag and blackout times enabling even more accurate tracking when panning with a fast- moving subject. The grip can also house two extra batteries, thus boosting the camera’s shooting capacity to an impressive 1000 frames or more. Turn the page for more details on the X-T2’s exciting key features.
