Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Camera Hands-On Preview

The new Fujifilm X-T2 mirrorless camera houses the latest generation 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor with no low-pass filter, boasting the highest performance in the history of X Series. This allows it to produce crisp image resolution comparable to that of cameras equipped with larger sensors and higher pixel counts, all in a more compact and classically-designed body.

The Fujifilm X-T2’s compact and lightweight camera body is also dust-resistant, water-resistant and capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C. Its autofocus and electronic viewfinder performance have both been substantially improved, making it more adaptable than ever before at shooting a moving subject under difficult conditions, such as sports or wildlife photography, which had previously been considered difficult with mirrorless cameras.

For the first time in the X Series, the Fujifilm X-T2 supports 4K video recording. The Film Simulation modes, used for still images, can also be applied to video to easily produce premium-quality footage.
