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.
To create photographs that are truly memorable they need texture, depth and atmosphere
Film Simulation modes reflect Fujifilm’s color philosophy created through years of photographic film manufacturing
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 colors, 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 contrast 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 macro 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 prioritizes focus. The five presets in the AF-C Custom Settings represent combinations of these three factors.
This setting allows you to specify whether the camera should switch its focus to a different subject or retain its focus to wait for the subject to reappear. This control is useful when the object you are tracking disappears behind an obstacle, goes out of the frame or when a second object at a substantially different distance from the subject comes into the frame, Selecting 0 makes the camera switch its focus immediately, while choosing 1-4 progressively lengthens the time it will retain focus.
Speed Tracking Sensitivity
This setting defines the camera’s tracking characteristics based on changes to the subject’s speed. Selecting 0 (constant speed), the camera does not consider change of speed when predicting subject movements. Choose 2 (variable speed) and the camera takes speed changes into account when predicting subject movement, making it suitable for accelerating or decelerating subjects.
Zone area Switching
This setting is available only in the Zone AF mode, and allows you to specify which part of the selected focusing zone should be given focusing priority. Select CENTER to maintain focus in the center of the frame, or FRONT to switch the focus to a subject at the front of frame when the original subject moves out of shot. AUTO tracks the subject you first focused on.
AF-C Custom Settings
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 exposure 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.
Film Simulation on video recording
Film Simulation modes are available during video recording. Movie shooters can enjoy extra creativity, without the need for lengthy post-production, including monochrome video in ACROS and documentary-themed tones in CLASSIC CHROME. You can also change settings such as aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation while recording video.
Simultaneous HDMI output to an external monitor
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.
Exceptionally balanced for a comfortable and reliable grip
The FUJIFILM X-T1’s grip has been further developed and now offers even greater comfort on the FUJIFILM X-T2 thanks to a larger area set aside as a thumb rest. Locking mechanisms have also been introduced for the SD Card Cover and Battery Cover.
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, 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 apertures, even in bright sunlight.
Lockable dials deliver quick and simple handling
Key exposure controls are dial-based, such as setting the shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, Drive Mode and Metering Mode. This means settings can easily be changed, even when the camera is turned off. Selected controls also feature lock and release buttons to enhance overall operation.
