Fujifilm X-Pro2 Wi-Fi Digital Camera Body The long awaited successor has arrived. The FUJIFILM X-Pro2 boasts a Hybrid Viewfinder capable of instantly switching between optical and electronic finders, plus an updated image sensor and processor, which dramatically improve image quality. By combining these features with the ultra-high image quality of FUJINON X-Mount lenses and the color reproduction technology accumulated through more than 80 years as a photographic film manufacturer, the X-Pro2 delivers the best ever results from an X-series camera. Electronic viewfinders (EVF) used by mirrorless cameras are said to be superior to optical viewfinders because settings including white balance and exposure can be checked instantly, and the displayed image can be enlarged to check focusing accuracy. In some cases, however, photographers prefer a more natural view. In particular, the optical rangefinder, which allows the user to view the subject in almost the same way as the naked eye, is extremely effective and often preferred by documentary, reportage and street photographers. The X-Pro2 is the only mirrorless camera in the world featuring a Hybrid Viewfinder system that incorporates both types of viewfinder. In addition, the X-Pro2 features a newly-developed 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor, which reduces moir+eacute and false colors without an optical low-pass filter. Plus, the updated X Processor Pro has increased all response times, despite increased resolution. Write speeds, start-up time and high-speed continuous shooting speeds have all been improved thanks to the new image processing engine. A faster mechanical shutter (up to 1/8000 sec.) gives extra flexibility for aperture selections in bright conditions or when shooting with flash outdoors during the day, and a robust, weather resistant body meets the needs of professional photographers. Key Features: IMAGE QUALITY A commitment to photographic creativity As a film manufacturer, Fujifilm has conducted exhaustive research into delivering photo quality results for more than 80 years. Without this experience, it would have been impossible to come up with the technical capability to reproduce colors and tones that emphasize the texture of the subject and deliver a three- dimensional look to images. The creative attributes of film that cannot be measured by resolution alone are alive and well in the FUJIFILM X-Pro2. New X-Trans CMOS III image sensor The newly-developed 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor boasts the highest ever pixel count for an X-Series camera. Combined with an XF lens, it delivers images with a perceived resolution far greater than the number of pixels used. In addition, the phase detection pixels have been positioned over a larger area for a faster, more precise phase detection AF performance. High ISO sensitivity performance has also been improved to the point that the whole sensitivity range -- up to the maximum ISO 12,800 (Extended output sensitivity up to 51,200) -- can now be used with confidence. New X Processor Pro: New processing engine increases speed and image processing capabilities Thanks to the newly-developed X-Processor Pro engine, processing speeds are now approximately four times faster than a conventional model. This maximizes the capabilities of the X-Trans CMOS III sensor to ensure it delivers the highest image quality with super-fast response times. In addition, thanks to the high-speed reading technology of the sensor, the conventional EVFs display speed of 54fps has been increased to a maximum of 85fps. This substantially reduces the image delay phenomenon when trracking a moving subject. Blackout time after release has also been reduced by approximately half and compressed RAW is supported, improving the ease-of-handling of RAW data.
