Look­ing for a cam­era that will take great pic­tures of your clas­sic – at rest and in ac­tion? Fuji’s compact X se­ries is right up your street. This year’s ma­jor lens re­lease­has made this cam­era even more suited to the needs of the clas­sic car pho­tog­ra­pher.

Tak­ing full ad­van­tage of the X-T10, X-T1 and X-Pro2’s on-sen­sor phase de­tec­tion and rapid AF and con­tin­u­ous drive, the weath­ersealed 100400mm zoom is de­signed for the APS-C sen­sor and as such, is smaller and lighter than tra­di­tional full-frame lenses.

It can be com­fort­ably hand-held for track­ing shots at motorsport events and tours. At 1.4kg, even with the body at­tached, the com­bi­na­tion is well un­der 2kg. A close fo­cus of just 1.75m com­bined with a fo­cal length range equiv­a­lent al­lows tight crops of de­tail sub­jects, in­clud­ing some of the model car im­ages in re­cent is­sues. As ex­pected with mod­ern tele­photo and zoom lenses, op­ti­cal sta­bil­i­sa­tion aids longer ex­po­sures and track­ing shots. For best per­for­mance, the X-T1 and X-Pro2 of­fer eight frames per sec­ond with AF. Ma­jor pho­to­graphic re­tail­ers 0344 553 2321 www.fu­ji­film.eu/uk
