FUJIFILM X-PRO2

The XPro2 is a high-end, rangefinder-esque mirrorless camera that directly succeeds the first X-mount camera: the X-Pro1. The Pro2 is based around a 24MP APS-C sensor and a host of feature improvements in a body that very closely resembles that of its predecessor.

The Fujifilm XPro2 is the long-awaited update to the X-Pro1 and offers a new 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor and an ‘advanced hybrid multi viewfinder’ that can be an optical or electronic viewfinder, or a combination of the two.

Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder

Photographers love looking through a viewfinder to take photos, which is why X Series models have used finders from the very start. Combining the advantages of both an OVF and an EVF, Fujifilm has perfected the Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder with three viewing options. Now you can return to the roots of photography with the only viewfinder of its kind in the world.

The advanced hybrid multi viewfinder allows you to switch between optical and electronic options with a single lever. The new electronic rangefinder feature is selected in the same way.

OVF/EVF switch lever

Electronic Rangefinder (ERF) simultaneously displays a small EVF window in the optical viewfinder.

Enlarged view of the focus area

The EVF is simultaneously displayed as a small window in the optical viewfinder. It can be displayed in three different ways: 100% field of view, 2.5x magnification and 6x magnification. This allows the user to check focus, the angle-of-view, exposure and white balance in real-time, even when taking photos through the OVF. As it can also be used with MF assist, precise MF is possible in the OVF mode.

 

 

 

Focusing system combines fast and accurate AF with simple MF

Accentuate your subject. For photographers, focusing is an important job. Although AF now reacts faster than the human eye, the appeal and level of trust in MF will never disappear. Manually operating the focus ring to pick out a specific element in the frame is often crucial. Speed isn’t always everything.

The new Focus Lever on the back of the camera can be moved like a joystick in eight directions to instantly move the focus area. Now, rapid focus area changes can be made, even when composing an image. Not only is this available to move the AF point during AF mode, but it can also be used during MF mode to quickly move the enlarged display area when using MF assist.

 

A body design that maximizes practicality

No photographer wants to take their eye from the viewfinder for fear of missing the perfect shot. With this in mind, key design aspects have been concentrated on the camera’s right side. The major exposure settings are available on a dial for quick fingertip control. Changes can also be made while the camera is switched off, so users will always be ready for the next photo opportunity. Thanks to the simplicity of the FUJIFILM X-Pro2, you’ll soon be creating masterpieces.

 

Dual-Function ISO Dial

The shutter speed and ISO dials have now been combined into one dial, which is reminiscent of those found on old film cameras. Changing the ISO is done by lifting the outer portion of the dial. Now all exposure settings can be performed with dials.

 

 

 

Highly customizable menus

A maximum of 16 frequently used items can be registered to the new My Menu feature. When combined with the 16 items from the Q Menu, a total of 32 shortcuts can be created.

 

 

 

 

Reliability is one of the most important considerations when choosing a camera, regardless of where you are and what type of scene you want to photograph. That’s why the camera body of FUJIFILM X-Pro2 is made from magnesium and designed to be dust-resistant, splash-resistant and freeze resistant up to -10°C, along with a highly durable focal plane shutter and dual card slot.
