THE FujiFiLM X-T2 sits alongside the X- Pro2 as one of Fujifilm’s two flagship models. The main difference between the two is that the X- Pro 2 is targeted more at still photographers who regularly use small lenses, whereas the X-T2 is positioned as more of an all-rounder that can be easily used with larger telephoto lenses and as a videography tool. as such it gains some additional features including 4K video, an articulated rear screen and a superior EVF. in terms of design the X-T2 closely follows the DsLr-like template of its predecessor – 2014’s X-T1 model – with a sculpted handgrip, raised EVF and weather sealing.
internally, the X-T2 is built around a 24.3MP X-Trans cMos iii aPs- c sensor and an X- Processor Pro image processor. The X-T2’s mechanical shutter offers a top speed of 1/8000sec, although switching to the electronic shutter increases this to 1/32,000sec. continuous shooting maxes out at 8fps unaided, however this can be increased to 11fps and 14fps by attaching the optional VPB-XT2 Power Booster grip (£249).
autofocus is taken care of via an advanced hybrid aF system that incorporates 325 individual aF points, 169 of which are of the phase- detection type. While coverage doesn’t quite stretch to 100% of the viewfinder, focus acquisition times are impressively fast. The X-T2 also boasts a number of useful aF- c customisation modes, which can be used to more accurately track moving subjects in a range of ways. in terms of its looks, build quality and performance the X-T2 is hard to beat.
