Ease of Use

At first glance the new Fujifilm X-T2 looks almost identical to lớn its 2-year-old predecessor, the X-T1, which was released back in early 2014. A closer look, though, reveals a number of subtle design tweaks, and it"s all change "under-the-hood", with a new 24 megapixel sensor, faster X Processor Pro image processing engine, improved Auto-focus system and enhanced clip recording.

The Fujifilm X-T2 sports a DSLR-look rather than the classic rangefinder thiết kế of the X-Pro series, a move that proved very popular when the X-T1 was launched, broadening the appeal of the X-series to potential customers that wanted a DSLR, or at least a camera that looked lượt thích one. "If it ain"t broke, don"t fix it" seems khổng lồ have been the mantra of the X-T2 kiến thiết team, with this new camera once again resembling a miniature DSLR.

Once again the X-T2 is weather-proof, with 80 points of weather sealing offering dust-resistance, water-resistance and freeze-resistance down lớn -10°C. The optional Vertical nguồn Booster Grip (VPB-XT2) offers the same levels of weather-proof-ness, along with a growing number of weather-resistant lenses that Fujifilm have launched since the original X-T1 was released.

The X-T2 dispenses with the range-topping X-Pro2"s innovative Hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder, replaced instead by a high-resolution OLED electronic viewfinder. Although sharing the same 2.36m dot resolution as the X-T1, Fujifilm have clearly been hard at work on making the X-T2"s electronic viewfinder even better, boasting brightness levels 2x better than on the X-T1 along with an automatic brightness adjustment function and a faster 100fps frame rate. With a magnification of 0.77x, it narrowly beats the Olympus M-D E-M1 khổng lồ the title of "EVF with the world"s highest magnification", while it has a lag-time of just 0.005 sec, in practice answering one of the most common complaints about electronic viewfinders. By default, the EVF refreshes at a rate of 60fps, but in the new Peformance Boost mode this jumps to lớn 100fps, smoothing out fast-moving subjects.

The viewfinder has the same stunning Graphic User Interface as the X-T1, which no optical viewfinder could ever hope khổng lồ emulate. The default Full mode does what its name suggests và displays an uninterrupted view of the scene with all the settings information displayed outside the frame so that you can really concentrate on your subject. Normal provides an optimum view, including the shooting settings. The very clever Dual mode takes advantage of the EVF"s kích cỡ to display a split view of the scene before you, with the full frame on the left và a smaller 100% manual focus area on the right, complete with either focus peaking or Fujifilm"s digital split image function. Finally, the displayed settings in the Full & Normal modes automatically rotate when the camera is held in a portrait orientation (although sadly not for the Dual view). You can also now customize the shooting information that"s displayed in the viewfinder.

Front of the Fujifilm X-T2

The Fujifilm X-T2 is a very well-built X-series camera, with absolutely no flex or movement in its chassis thanks to the die-cast magnesium alloy toàn thân and machined control dials. At the same time, it"s actually a little lighter than a first glance might suggest, weighing in at 507g body only with the battery & memory card fitted, 67g more than the X-T1. Measuring 132.5mm (W) x 91.8mm (H) x 49.2mm (D), it"s slightly taller & deeper too.

The X-T2 has a deeper hand-grip at the front và a prominent rest at the rear for your thumb, with your grip helped in no small part by the textured faux-leather surface that runs around the full width of the camera. Two small metal eyelets on either side of the body are used for connecting the supplied shoulder strap. A metal tripod mount is positioned in line with the centre of the lens và next khổng lồ the battery compartment, which means that you"ll no longer have to lớn remove the camera from the tripod to change the battery, as with the X-T1.

Two memory card slots are located on the right-hand flank of the camera when viewed from the rear. The X-T2 is the latest camera lớn offer compatibility with Ultra High speed UHS-II SDXC memory cards, which has the main benefit of increasing the data writing tốc độ in continuous mode to lớn about twice that of a conventional UHS-1 card. The X-T2 offers a continuous shooting rate of 14fps for 42 JPEGs or 28 compressed RAW files if you use a UHS-II SDXC card và the electronic shutter, making it one of the fastest compact system cameras on the market. If you prefer to use the mechanical shutter, the rate drops lớn a still impressive 11fps with the VPB-XT2 grip fitted, và 8fps without.

At the heart of the X-T2 is the brand new 24.3 megapixel APS-C sized “X-Trans III” CMOS sensor, with APS-C being a kích cỡ that"s more commonly used by the majority of DSLR cameras than by compact system cameras. Fujifilm actually claim that the X-T2"s sensor will deliver image chất lượng that surpasses most APS-C DSLRs và even some full-frame ones, thanks lớn the quality sensor which has a type of colour filter array that mimics film grain và no optical low-pass filter for higher resolution images, và as our test photos & sample images on the next two pages show, the X-T2 actually does live up khổng lồ those claims. We won"t say any more at this point other than to recommend that you take a look at our Sample Images for yourself.

Helping lớn keep the image unique high is the 18-55mm standard zoom kit lens that we predominantly tested the X-T2 with. This offers fast maximum apertures of f/2.8 at 18mm and f/4 at 55mm, with the added benefit of built-in optical image stabilisation lớn help keep your images sharp. There are aperture and manual focus rings on the lens barrel, which in conjunction with the shutter speed and exposure compensation dials on đứng đầu of the camera body makes it straight-forward to lớn set the exposure. We did find though that the aperture ring is easily moved, particularly when taking the lens on and off the camera, so watch out for an incorrectly set aperture. The XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS is a really nice standard zoom that"s certainly a cut above the kit lenses that ship with most interchangeable lens cameras.

The 18-55mm lens" fast maximum apertures in conjunction with the large APS-C sensor make it easy to lớn throw the background out of focus và achieve some really nice bokeh effects. The combination of the fast apertures và the extensive ISO range of 100-51200 makes the X-T2 very well suited khổng lồ low-light shooting, allowing you khổng lồ hand-hold the camera in places where you"d usually be reaching for a tripod (if allowed) or other support. The clever ISO auto Control setting allows you lớn set a maximum sensitivity (now up to 12800) and a minimum shutter speed (1/30th is a good starting point), with the camera over-riding your ISO choice if it thinks you"re being too ambitious whilst maintaining a shutter speed that won"t introduce camera shake.

With its new focal-plane shutter, the X-T2 has a more adaptable đứng đầu shutter-speed limit of 1/8000th second in all shooting modes than the X-T1"s 1/4000th speed. This allows you to lớn select a faster aperture even in bright conditions or when shooting with flash during the day, although as there"s no built-in ND filter as on the X100-series cameras, if you want to use, say, the 35mm lens at f/1.4 in very bright sunlight then it"s still a good idea to lớn buy an actual glass ND filter. The X-T2 utilises a focal-plane shutter rather than the leaf shutter that the X100-series have, much lượt thích a regular DSLR camera. This results in slightly noisier operation và a much slower flash-sync tốc độ of 1/250th second (versus the X100"s 1/4000th second). Khổng lồ make the camera less obtrusive there"s a Silent menu option which turns off the speaker, flash, AF-assist lamp & most importantly the shutter-release sound, instantly making the X-T2 perfectly suited to lớn more candid photography.

The X-T2 also has an electronic shutter in addition khổng lồ the mechanical one, which provides a much faster đứng top shutter speed of 1/32,000th second. This allows you to lớn continue shooting wide-open with fast aperture lenses in the brightest of conditions without having to lớn resort to fitting a glass ND filter or using external flash and lights. There are some important caveats with the electronic shutter - the ISO range is restricted khổng lồ 200-12800, you can"t use the flash at all, và the slowest shutter speed is only 1 second, but overall it"s a great addition that makes the X-T2 more versatile than its predecessor. It"s also possible to set the electronic shutter in 1/3 steps from a range of 1sec khổng lồ 1/32000sec.

The X-T1 was no slouch when it came to auto-focusing, but Fujifilm have made the X-T2"s AF system even better. It can auto-focus in as little as 0.06 seconds & offers an increased number of AF points - 91 versus the X-T1"s 49 - again laid out in a 7 x7 grid, with a lot more of the imaging area covered by fast và precise phase detection AF pixels ( approx. 230% more compared lớn the X-T1).

Rear of the Fujifilm X-T2

If you want even more control, you can select the 325 points option which splits the same area of the frame into a 13x25 grid of smaller AF points, of which the central 77 are phase-detection points. The X-T2 is the latest X-series camera lớn offer Zone & Wide/Tracking modes which utilise the larger 325-point area lớn capture moving subjects. In Zone mode, you can select a 3x3, 5x5 or 7x7 zone out of the 325-point AF area. During AF-C focus, the X-T2 continually tracks the subject, positioning it at the centre of the zone. The centrally positioned 3x3 & 5x5 zones in particular deliver fast focusing thanks to the on-sensor phase detection AF.

The Wide/Tracking mode combines the Wide mode (during AF-S), in which the X-T2 automatically identifies và tracks the area in focus across the 325 point AF area, và the predictive Tracking mode (during AF-C), which uses the entire 325-point area to continue tracking the subject. This feature enables continuous focusing on a subject that is moving up và down, left & right or towards và away from the camera.

Fujifilm have drastically improved the AF-C algorithm to lớn make the X-T2 better able lớn track moving subjects. You can now determine how the camera reacts khổng lồ the way the subject moves within the frame, how fast the subject moves & where in the frame the camera prioritizes focus, with five AF presets offered và the ability lớn create up lớn 6 of your own. The AF-C system is so complex behind-the-scenes that Fujifilm have created a special microsite lớn explain it in more detail (http://fujifilm-x.com/af/). The X-T2 also offers Eye Detection AF, which as the name suggests automatically detects và focuses on human eyes You can also define the area of priority focus, for example the right or left eye, or the eye closer lớn the camera.

There"s also the continued ability to lớn change the form size of the focus point via the rear command dial to achieve more precise focusing. As well as the extra AF points, one of the positive effects of the high-performance X Processor Pro image processing engine is much faster AF tốc độ - about 2x quicker than the processor used on the X-T1 camera - making the X-T2 the joint-fastest AF performer in an X-Series camera with the X-Pro2. Also borrowed from the X-Pro2, the X-T2 now has the fantastic Focus Lever joystick, used mainly for setting the AF point. This is a real boon khổng lồ anyone who changes the AF point a lot, making it simple to lớn change even when holding the camera at eye-level.

Top of the Fujifilm X-T2

Manual focusing is activated by setting the focusing switch on the front of the camera to Manual & using the ring that encircles the lens lớn focus. In terms of focusing aids, the Standard option offers a distance scale along the bottom of the viewfinder (both the OVF và EVF) and on the LCD screen if you"re using that for composition, with a trắng bar indicating the the focusing distance and a xanh bar showing the depth of field, which actually changes in line with the current aperture - very handy. The X-T2 has another trick up its manual focusing sleeve in the shape of the rear command control (the dial which sits under your right thumb). You can press this in khổng lồ magnify the view in the electronic viewfinder or LCD screen. Furthermore, if you hold down the rear command control dial, the manual focusing aid then switches khổng lồ Digital Split Image, & then lớn Focus Peaking - a very neat way to quickly change between the three modes.

The second manual focusing method is the Digital Split Image feature. Harking back to film cameras of the past, this displays dual images on the left and right which then need to lớn be lined up together for accurate manual focusing, enabling accurate focusing especially when shooting wide-open or for macro shooting. It"s much easier khổng lồ understand in practice than written down. The third và final method is the Focus Peak Highlight function, which displays a white line (the colour và strength are customisable) around the subject when it"s in focus.

In addition khổng lồ the class-leading electronic viewfinder, the X-T2 has a high-resolution 3 inch lcd monitor on the back, which offers 100% scene coverage & 1.04 million dots, and can be usefully tilted up and down by about 90 degrees when in landscape mode và upward when shooting in portrait mode by releasing a small switch on the edge of the screen. The LCD screen has a handy Info view which presents all of the key settings at once, or you can switch to lớn the Standard or Custom Live View modes, with the latter offering 14 customisable options (these are also used for the electronic viewfinder). The X-T2 has a built-in eye sensor so that you only have khổng lồ hold the camera up lớn eye-level to switch between the rear LCD và the electronic viewfinder (or you can press the View Mode button on the side of the pentaprism).

In terms of operational speed, the Fujifilm X-T2 is very satisfying lớn use. Shutter lag is virtually non-existent on this camera (0.045 second), so once you have mix the focus, you"ll never miss the moment because the camera can"t fire the shutter quickly enough. The shot-to-shot time is just 0.17 second, and it starts-up in only 0.3 seconds. The write speeds from pressing the shutter button lớn recording to the SD / SDHC / SDXC memory thẻ are fast too. Shooting a single RAW + Fine JPEG takes less than half a second to record lớn a UHS-II card, a big improvement on the already speedy X-T1. Continuous shooting speeds have been improved too, as we"ve already explained above. Thankfully the camera doesn"t lock up completely for a long time if you shoot the maximum number of images in a burst, allowing you to continue shooting after just a few seconds. The X-T2 also offers interval timer shooting for time lapses, with intervals of 1 second to lớn 24 hours và up to lớn 999 frames.

Tilting LCD Screen

The Fujifilm X-T2 continues lớn excel in its handling, thanks in no small part lớn the numerous external controls that make changing the key settings a breeze, especially when holding the camera at eye-level. Surrounding the 18-55m lens is a circular aperture ring, although it has no markings due to the variable aperture. This dial also allows you to lớn choose third-stop apertures. On top of the X-T2 is a large, tactile, lockable control dial for setting the shutter speed, with settings ranging from 1 second lớn 1/8000th second, an tự động option, a T setting for longer exposures (2 lớn 30 seconds, phối via the circular command wheel) và a Bulb mode for exposures up khổng lồ a whopping 60 minutes in length. Alongside the shutter speed dial is another tactile dial for changing the exposure compensation, with a range of +-3EV and a new Custom setting, & on the left-hand side is a third, lockable dial for setting the ISO speed, with settings ranging from tự động hóa to H (either 25600 or 51200). Together these three controls make it extremely easy to set the exposure.

Underneath the ISO Speed và Shutter tốc độ dials are two more dials, the first for setting bracketing, burst, multiple exposure, advanced and panorama functions, and the second for setting the metering mode. Cleverly, unlike the dials that sit on đứng đầu of the them, these two dials are not locked in place.

Four other controls complete the X-T2"s top-plate. The small but responsive shutter release button is encircled by the On/Off switch, và there"s now a thread for a traditional mechanical cable release. Alongside is the Fn button, which by default provides quick access to lớn the Face-Eye Detection options, but can be customised to lớn suit your own needs from 12 different settings. Further customisation is available via the 7 Custom menu options, which let you create, save and recall up khổng lồ 7 sets of user-defined settings, và no less than 6 configurable function buttons.

There"s an external flash hotshoe for suitable dedicated external units, into which fits the supplied EF-X8 flash that ships in the box. This small but handy flash unit has a guide number of 11 at ISO 200, which goes some way khổng lồ compensating for the fact that it"s not built-in to lớn the camera.

The Fujifilm X-T2 In-hand

The X-T2 features enhanced built-in wi-fi connectivity, although there"s now no dedicated button lớn access it (you have khổng lồ configure one of the Fn buttons or access it via the menu system). Install the Fujifilm Camera Remote App và you can transfer your pictures immediately khổng lồ a điện thoại thông minh or tablet PC & then edit & share them as you wish, transfer stills and đoạn phim onto the camera, và embed GPS information in your shots from your smartphone. You can also control the camera remotely, with the danh mục of available functions including touch AF, shutter release for stills và movies, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, Film Simulation modes, trắng Balance, macro, timer and flash. The built-in wi-fi also provides a simple means to backup your photos to lớn your home PC.

The X-T2 has a logical enough rear control layout. Above the LCD screen và to the left of the viewfinder are two buttons for choosing image deletion or playback, while on the right is the AE-L button, rear control dial & the AF-L button. Beneath those is the Quick thực đơn button, which provides quick access lớn lots of frequently used shooting settings including the ISO speed, trắng Balance, File size and file Quality, with either the new focus lever or the 4-way controller và the command dial used khổng lồ quickly change them. In the middle of the controller is the menu button, which accesses the eight Shooting và Set-up menus. Underneath is the Disp/Back button which is used for changing the LCD display or going back.

We don"t normally mention accessories in our camera reviews, but the X-T2"s new battery grip is so important that it needs mentioning here. The catchily named VPB-XT2 isn"t just any old battery grip, though - as the first three initials suggest, it"s a "vertical nguồn booster" grip which, as well as including 2 extra batteries, increases the tốc độ of the X-T2 in a whole host of different ways. The burst shooting speed increases from 8fps lớn 11fps, the shooting interval decreases from 190msec to 170msec, the release lag drops from 50msec to 45msec, và as mentioned above, the recording time in 4K goes from 10 to lớn 30 minutes. As well as adding a 3.5mm headphone socket, it also acts as a twin battery charger, so that you can effectively charge 4 batteries at once - 2 in the VPB-XT2 (only taking 2 hours), 1 in the X-T2 camera via USB, and 1 in the supplied battery charger. The VPB-XT2 also helps Fujifilm"s longer lenses balance better on the X-T2 - we"d go so far as saying it"s something of a must-buy accessory.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 24 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image kích cỡ of around 10Mb.

The Fujifilm X-T2 produces images of outstanding quality. It recorded noise-free JPEG images at ISO 100 all the way up lớn 6400, with a little noise at ISO 12800 & more visible noise & slight colour desaturation at the faster settings of ISO 25600 and 51200, an amazing performance for a camera with an APS-C sensor. The RAW files were also excellent, exhibiting more noise but still producing very usable images from ISO 100-12800.

The night photograph was excellent, with the maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds being long enough for most after-dark shots, & the Bulb mode allowing much longer exposures if required. The Dynamic Range settings subtly improve detail in the shadows và highlights, while the Film Simulation modes hark back to lớn a bygone era, with the new Acros mode being a nice addition.
