Sitting pretty at the top of the company's line-up right alongside the X-Pro2, the Fujifilm X-T2 is a feature-packed mirrorless camera. As a Fujifilm flagship, the camera boasts some of the company's best specs, including new 4K video and 325 autofocus points, updating on an already-solid X-T1.
Like most of Fujifilm's mirrorless cameras, the X-T2 uses an APS-C sensor with the optical low pass filter removed, but with updated third generation tech. Fujifilm X-Trans sensors that we've reviewed in the past have produced wonderful colors and solid detail, and we're expecting nothing less from the X-T2.
That sensor allows for 4K video (3840x2160) at 24, 25 or 30 fps. Like most cameras, the 4K clips are limited in size, but the 10-minute clip limit isn't too bad based on the comps.
Fujifilm also upped the ante in the autofocus with 325 single points. Combined with the 8 fps burst mode, the camera should handle action with no problem. That burst speed can be pushed up to 14 fps, but that's using the electronic shutter (most electronic shutters tend to introduce more noise to the image than a traditional physical shutter).
Outside the camera, much of the design remains unchanged. The magnesium alloy body, like the T-1, is weather-sealed. Access to most of the controls is with retro dials, similar to Fujifilm's other mirrorless cameras. The LCD screen tilts, and of course as a flagship model there's a nice electronic viewfinder.
The Fujifilm X-T2 looks like a solid camera, and if the previous generations are any indication, should produce some excellent images. All those features do come at a cost a bit high for the mirrorless category, at around $1,600 for the body only. Still, with the feature set and quality, the X-T2 looks like any excellent option for serious enthusiasts and pros.
