The FUJIFILM X-T2 features a 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor for outstanding image quality. Its highly random pixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. array effectively reduces moiré and false colours without the use of an optical low-pass filterLOW-PASS FILTERAlso called an Anti-aliasing Filter.
A filter made of a birefringent material, such as Lithium Niobate, placed infront of the image sensor. The filter's purpose is to reduce moiré, caused by large scale interference between fine textures and patterns in the image and the fine matrix pattern of the image sensor. The low-pass filter works by scattering any optical point in the image into a cluster of four, and effectively causing micro blur and thus removing the aliasing and consequently the moiré pattern. Some high-end cameras are deliberately designed without any low-pass filter in order to maximize the sharpness of the captured image - possible moiré is the trade-off.. When combined with an XF lens, the sensor delivers images with a perceived resolution far greater than the number of pixels used. Other features include outstanding read speed, high-speed continuous shooting, high-precision AF tracking, highly faster liveview refresh rate and superb video recording.
Excellent image processing from X-Processor Pro
The X-Processor Pro image processing engine is approximately four times faster than the previous model. The increased built-in memory and enhanced computational power bring out the maximum capabilities of the X-Trans CMOS III sensor. It produces high-quality images and improves response times for shorter delays between shots, reduced shutter-release time lag and greater AF precision. The engine also delivers faster Live View refresh rates and reduces image delay when tracking moving subjects.
Film Simulation modes reflect Fujifilm's colour philosophy
Incorporating knowledge developed from over 80 years of photographic film manufacturing, the FUJIFILM X-T2's Film Simulation modes allow you to enjoy different color tones and rich gradations as if actually swapping films. A total of 15 modes are available, including PROVIA and Velvia to reproduce vibrant colours, plus ACROS for fine-detailed monochrome images. The Grain Effect function can be combined with all Film Simulation modes to add a textured look and deliver a greater range of artistic effects.
Larger high-speed and high-precision phase detection AF area coupled with performance improvements
AF performance has been improved in a number of keys areas. The fast and accurate phase-detection AF now covers a larger part of the frame and has been optimized in the area where users are most likely to position the main subject. At the same time, the FUJIFILM X-T2 boasts significant focusing improvements on small highlights, low contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). subjects and subjects with fine textures, which have previously caused problems for focal plane phase detection AF. Contrast detection AF, which excels in low light conditions, has also received a performance boost, with the ability to accurately focus in light levels as low as -3EV. The camera also refocuses more regularly during the slow burst mode in AF-C.
The phase detection area has been expanded by approx. 230% compared to previous models, with the number of focus points increasing from 49 to 91 (up to 325). The camera also activates phase detection AF more frequently to take advantage of its AF speed and accuracy in a greater variety of situations.
The AF algorithm has been improved to boost the camera's ability to capture subjects that have previously caused problems for phase detection AF. Subjects with delicate textures, such as bird feathers, can now be focused on quickly and precisely.
Eye Detection AF automatically detects human eyes
Choose Face Detection to automatically detect human faces, or turn on Eye Detection AF to automatically detect and accurately focus on human eyes for successful portraits with a shallow depth-of-field. You can also define the area of priority focus, for example right or left eye, or the eye closer to the camera. These functions have been upgraded for improved accuracy to a level that will impress professional photographers. They are particularly effective when shooting with the XF56mmF1.2 R / XF56mmF1.2 R APD or XF90mmF2 R LM WR lenses.
Pinpoint accurate focusing in MF mode
The FUJIFILM X-T2 has a variety of functions that assist pinpoint focusing in the MF mode. Set the Focus Mode Lever to MF and rotate the focus ring to access a variety of MF Assist functions. These include Focus Peaking, in which color is used to show the parts of the image that are in focus, and Digital Split Image, where focus is achieved by lining up the split image strips in the center. These features are particularly useful in macroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. photography and portraiture, which involve a shallow depth-of-field and require focusing precision.
Focus Lever to instantly change the focusing point
The focus area can be changed in eight directions using the FUJIFILM X-T2's Focus Lever: up/down, right/left and diagonally. This allows users to make quick changes to the focus area for accurate focusing after composing an image. This feature is useful not only to shift the AF points during autofocusing, but also to quickly choose the area to be enlarged in MF Assist mode during manual focusing.
A new AF brain to capture the decisive moment every time
Fujifilm has substantially improved the AF-C algorithm to boost the accuracy of the FUJIFILM X-T2's ability to track moving subjects. You can now fine tune how the camera reacts to the way the subject moves within the frame, how fast the subject moves and where in the frame the camera prioritises focus. The five presets in the AF-C Custom Settings represent combinations of these three factors.
Use a setting to match the subject's movements for perfect tracking
The AF-C Custom Setting allows you to select one of five AF presets according to the subject's movements to obtain perfect focus tracking. Based on how the subject moves, you can select a preset from, for example, Preset 2: Ignoring obstacles, Preset 3: For subjects that accelerate / decelerate, Preset 4: For subjects that suddenly come into the frame or Preset 5: Subjects with erratic movements to obtain optimum settings for accurate subject tracking. A combination of three factors: Tracking sensitivity, Speed tracking sensitivity and Zone area switching, may be manually set and registered as Preset 6: Custom.
High-resolution Real Time Viewfinder with a 0.77x magnification ratio
The 2.36-million-dot high-resolution organic EL electronic viewfinder has a magnification ratio of 0.77x, a horizontal viewing angle of 31 degrees, and a display time lag of just 0.005 seconds. The viewfinder, which is 2 times brighter than the previous model, also features an automatic brightness adjustment function so it's easy to see in all conditions - even intense backlighting. It completely eliminates moiré or false colors, and boasts performance comparable to an optical viewfinder, but with the added advantage of displaying a live view that reflects exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. settings.
Up to 100 fps EVF refresh rate for a clear display even in low light
As standard, the EVF refreshes at a rate of 60 fps, but in Boost mode this jumps to 100fps, which continuously displays even fast-moving subjects smoothly to deliver a performance comparable to that of an optical viewfinder. The fast refresh rate is maintained even in low light for easy framing during night shooting.
Focusing on subjects with erratic movements
Continuous shooting performance has also been improved, enabling up to 11fps when using the mechanical shutter* and 5fps in the Live View mode. The viewfinder blackout time is now less than half that of the previous model. This means that you can track a fast-moving subject more easily for an extended period of time during continuous shooting. The combination of advanced continuous shooting options and EVF performance deliver continuous AF-C shooting never previously thought possible with mirrorless cameras.
Outstanding 4K high-definition video
The FUJIFILM X-T2 captures approx. 1.8x the required number of pixels for 4K video (4K/30P, 25P, 24P) and 2.4x the required data for full HD video (1080/60P, 50P, 24P) to deliver superior movie quality free from moiré or artifacts. It also supports the high bit rate of 100Mbps.
Video can be output via HDMI during recording, allowing you to simultaneously check footage on the camera's LCD monitor or EVF and an external monitor. The data can even be recorded onto an external recorder as you film in the uncompressed format. As for 4K movie, you can choose log gamma "F-Log" to record a wider dynamic range than normal video mode.
Solid body with resistance to dust, moisture and low temperatures
The FUJIFILM X-T2's body is made of magnesium alloy. Despite being compact and lightweight, it is both solid and highly durable. The body is also weather-sealed in 63 points to achieve a high level of resistance to dust and moisture. Couple this with its ability to work in temperatures down to -10°C and you'll see the camera is ready for anything. Similar weather-sealing is applied to the dust-resistant and water-resistant lenses and the Power Booster Grip to provide weather resistance across the entire system.
Dual SD card slots
The body features dual slots to accommodate two SD cards for highly reliable data storage. Both Slot 1 and Slot 2 are compatible with UHS-II standards for excellent write speeds. You can use the slots for sequential recording, backup, sorting to record RAW files in Slot 1 and JPEG files in Slot 2, or assign one of the slots for video storage.
Three-direction tilting LCD screen
The FUJIFILM X-T2 features a premium LCD screen that can tilt in three directions. Tilt it up and down when shooting in landscape orientation, and upward when shooting in portrait. The screen remains positioned on the optical axis of the lens for easier high-angle and low-angle shooting. The 3-inch LCD has 1.04 million dots and uses toughened glass. When not tilted, it fits flush to the body.
Highly-durable focal plane shutter with a maximum speed of 1/8000 sec.
The FUJIFILM X-T2 features a focal plane shutter with a maximum speed of 1/8000 sec, flash sync speed of 1/250 sec and durability of 150,000 shots. It also supports an ultra-fast, silent-operating electronic shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32,000 sec that allows you to shoot at wide apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur.s, even in bright sunlight.
