THERE’S A NEW X-PRO IN TOWN

FU­JI­FILM Malaysia Launches the X-Pro2, X70, and FUJINON XF100-400mm

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

Early in March, FU­JI­FILM Malaysia launched three new X-se­ries prod­ucts in Malaysia – the X-Pro2, X70 and FUJINON XF100400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM IOS WR lens.

Long­time FU­JI­FILM users will know that the X-se­ries is where the com­pany parks its high-end of­fer­ings and that hasn’t changed. The X-Pro2 is the com­pany’s flag­ship in­ter­change­able sys­tem cam­era, and nat­u­rally, it’s equipped with some of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy, such as a new 24.3MP sen­sor and an up­dated Hy­brid Multi Viewfinder. It also has dual SD card slots, as well as a new ACROS Film Sim­u­la­tion mode for more punchy black and white pho­tos. Fur­ther­more, it is du­s­tand splash-proof.

The X70, on the other hand, is best de­scribed as a sim­pli­fied X100T. It makes use of a 3-inch touch­screen LCD that can be flipped 180-de­gree up­wards for fram­ing pur­poses, and to re­lay in­for­ma­tion. In ad­di­tion, there’s also Ad­vanced SR Auto, a mode that helps you take sharp, well-ex­posed pho­tos, thanks to the fact that it rec­og­nizes faces, and takes into ac­count the en­tire light­ing con­di­tion of the frame be­fore au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just­ing its fo­cus, ex­po­sure, ISO, and other set­tings. The lens on this cam­era is a newly de­vel­oped FUJINON 18.5mm f/2.8 lens.

Last but not least is the FUJINON XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM IOS WR lens. De­signed for pro­fes­sion­als who want to shoot sports or wildlife, this lens has up to five stops of im­age sta­bi­liza­tion, and com­prises 21 lens el­e­ments in 14 groups. It weighs less than 1.4kg, and also makes use of a flu­o­rine coat­ing to re­pel dirt and wa­ter.

The X-Pro2 is priced at RM8,188 (body only), the X70 at RM3,388, and the XF100-400mm is go­ing for RM8,998.
