Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review
- 24MP CMOS III APS-C sensor
- 273 AF points
- ISO 200-12800
- 2.36 million dot OLED Hybrid VF
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a new release from the Tokyo based company that comes with a 24MP sensor, an advanced image processing engine, new state of the art hybrid viewfinder that combines an electronic viewfinder and an optical viewfinder, a weather proof body, a top speed of 1/8000 sec and dual SD card support among other features.
What is the image quality ?
This new baby offers high quality images if you are not planning on doing any macro photography. You will get noise-free high quality JPEG images at ISO 100 up to 6400 and might only find a bit of noise at the ISO levels of 12800. The noise levels and disaturation increases as you increase the ISO settings but the performance is pretty decent for an APS- C sensor. When it comes to RAW format images, you will find more noise but they are pretty usable especially when working with an ISO range of 100-12800. However, on default settings, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 images are a bit soft and you would need to get them sharpened on an image editing software. Night shots are also pretty decent as well and you could use most of the photo professionally.
What is the sound quality ?
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is probably suited for still photography although it has a decent audio quality as well. There’s basically nothing to worry about when it comes to video recording and playback.
Is it waterproof and durable ?
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 comes with a weather proof seal that protects it from the harshest of conditions but if you plan on going under water, then I suggest looking at the Fujifilm XP90 released earlier this year in the CES 2016. However with its sturdy unibody design and weather proofing, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 could see a considerable amount of beating and still live up to its promises.
Conclusion: Should you get it ?
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 looks like its older sibling the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 which is nearly 4 years old. However, it does set itself apart with new features. Moreover, it does not only represent a huge improvement to the older Fujifilm X-Pro 1 but a major development into the fuji x series in general. This means that we should be expecting to see future improvements in the X-T2 and other cameras in the range sooner. There are a few things to consider like the Fujifilm X-Pro2’s price when buying this beauty like the Fujifilm X-Pro2 price is a bit higher than you would expect mainly because of the hybrid viewfinder that’s the first of its kind in the world. However, when it comes to the overall camera build and handling experience, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a great choice for anyone looking for a great camera to upgrade from their old fuji x model.
