EYES ON THE PRIZE!
With this issue the 2017 Fujifilm Showcase competition is closed so congratulations to our six round winners. The winner of the grand prize for 2017 – a Fujifilm X-Pro with an XF 23mm f2.0 lens – will be announced in the November/December 2017 issue. If you missed out this year, there’s always the 2018 competition which is now open for entries and the first round of winners will also be published in the next issue. We’ve yet to finalise the grand prize for the 2018 comp, but our 2017 winners are particularly lucky as Fujifilm Australia decided to very generously donate an X-Pro2 and 35mm f1.4 lens which, not surprisingly, resulted in a flurry of last-minute entries.
The X-Pro2 combines classic rangefinder styling with all Fujifilm’s latest imaging tech, including a 24.3 million (effective) pixels ‘X-Trans CMOS III’ sensor, the powerful ‘X Processor Pro’ and the brilliant ‘Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder’ which gives you the best of the optical and electronic viewfinders. Furthermore, the X-Pro2 has an all-metal weatherproofed bodyshell with a classical dial-based control layout. It can shoot at up to 8.0 fps and offers Fujifilm’s latest ‘Film Simulation’ picture presets – ACROS for fine-grained B&Ws and Classic Chrome for richer colours.
