Fujifilm X - T2 Offers 24mp, Improved Af And Video Specs


Fujifilm X-T2 offers 24MP, improved AF and video specsFujifilm has updated its premium SLR-style X-series lineup with the X-T2, bringing 4K video capture to its lineup for the first time.
The camera uses the 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor first seen in the X-Pro2 and also includes an upgraded hybrid AF system with more focus points, as well as an AF-point selection joystick a la the X-Pro2. There's also a faster top mechanical shutter speed of 1/8000 sec (1/32,000 sec with the electronic electronic), an improved AF-C algorithm and an overall boost in response times when using the camera. Like the X-T1, this camera is weather-sealed.

The X-T2 offers an unchanged 2.36 million-dot OLED EVF carried over from its predecessor, but the 1.04 million-dot 3" LCD has an additional hinge for waist-level portrait-orientation shooting. An optional 'Vertical Power Booster Grip' is offered. The grip houses two batteries and lives up to its name by 'boosting' mechanical shutter burst shooting to 11 fps (from 8 fps), reducing shutter lag and blackout time slightly and allowing for 30 minutes of 4K capture (as opposed to 10).

An EF-X500 hot shoe flash is also introduced for the system, offering a guide number of 50 with a tilting flash head.

The Fujifilm X-T2 will be available in September for $1,599.95 body-only, or bundled with the XF18-55mm for $1,899.95. The EF-XF500 flash will also be available in September for $449.99.
