The X-T2 is a powerful mirrorless digital camera from Fujifilm equiped with a range of features to meet the needs of the working professional photographer, including UHD 4K video recording. Featuring a 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III image sensor without an optical low-pass filter and X-Processor Pro Engine, the X-T2 will enable you to swiftly capture finely detailed imagery with low noise at sensitivities up to ISO 51200. When compared with conventional pixel patterns, the X-Trans design more closely mimics the organic nature of film in order to produce subtle colours and smooth tonal transitions, while also reducing moir and aliasing. This impressive combination also allows images to be captured at up to 8 fps with full AF tracking or at up to 14 fps using the silent electronic shutter. Blending both phase- and contrast-detection focusing methods, the Intelligent Hybrid AF system with 325 points ensures fast and accurate tracking of subjects in all modes. An electronic shutter function permits using shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sec for working with wide aperture settings in bright lighting conditions, and built-in Wi-Fi enables wireless transferring of imagery to linked mobile devices as well as remote control over camera settings and the shutter via the free Fujifilm Camera Remote app.
For video, the X-T2 offers internal UHD 4K video as well as an 8-bit 4:2:2 HDMI output. The internal recording offers 100 Mbps bitrate and an F-Log Gamma setting is available for capturing a flat picture best used in serious grading applications. Fuji's variety of Film Simulations and Grain Effects can also be applied, for both stills and video shooting.
Physically the X-T2 features improved handling with various features including a larger grip, locking dials and raised buttons. The weather-sealed magnesium alloy body also includes a 0.5" 0.77x 2.36m-dot OLED EVF with a larger eyecup and a base refresh rate of 60 fps, which can be boosted to 100 fps. Alternatively, use the 3.0" 1.04m-dot three-way tilting LCD screen to compose and view your images. A focus lever joystick allows for rapidly adjusting and changing the selected AF point or area, while dual UHS-II compatible SD card slots allow for a versatile and reliable means of storing your imagery.
The XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens from Fujifilm is a weather-sealed lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-82.5mm, making it a versatile standard-length zoom that's ready to handle changing weather conditions. A constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 aperture lends itself to working in low light conditions and gives you control over focus placement with its shallow depth of field.
Internal focusing and the Twin Linear Motor AF system ensures autofocus is fast and near silent, while 17 elements in 12 groups with three extra-low dispersion (ED) elements and three aspherical elements work to eliminate chromatic and spherical aberations and distortion. Nano-GI and HT-EBC coating minimise surface reflections, and prevent lens flare and ghosting.
The lens barrel incorporates 14 distinct weather seals, making it both moisture and dust resistant, and a 9-blade circular diaphragm renders pleasing out-of-focus 'bokeh' areas. By combining this lens with select X-Series camera bodies with Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) technology, the performance from the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.
