Camera - - ON TRIAL -

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.
