NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 07, 2016) - B&H is pleased to share Fujifilm's announcement of the X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera and EF-X500 Flash. This highly anticipated DSLR-style camera shares the top spot in Fujifilm's lineup with the rangefinder-like X-Pro2. As such, the X-T2 gains many of the advantages of the X-Pro2, along with some new additions. Primarily, the first major upgrade is the use of a 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor and the X-Processor Pro Engine for handling most of the image capture and processing needs. Video has been taken up a notch, as well, with UHD 4K video options, a first for Fujifilm. Shooters will even have access to a flat F-Log Gamma for advanced productions, and Film Simulation modes for unique, beautiful imagery.
Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera
- 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III Sensor
- X-Processor Pro Engine
- 0.77x 2.36m-Dot OLED Viewfinder
- 3.0" 1.62m-Dot 3-Way Tilting LCD Screen
- Internal UHD 4K Video & F-Log Gamma
- Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity
- 325-Point Intelligent Hybrid AF System
- Up to 8 fps Shooting and ISO 51200
- Weather-Sealed Body; Two UHS-II SD Slots
- Film Simulation and Grain Effect Modes
Among the substantial improvements provided by the new sensor and processor is improved focusing speed and accuracy. Leveraging an advanced 325-point Hybrid AF system with phase-detect point covering 50% of the width and 75% of the height of the sensor area, users will be able to lock on and track moving subjects with ease. The Fuji X-T2 also opens the door for advanced customization of continuous AF, ensuring ideal settings for your specific shoot.

The camera shoots quickly too, at up to 8 fps or 11 fps when using the optional VPB-XT2 Vertical Power Booster Grip. This grip improves performance of the camera as a whole, including faster burst speeds, video recording times of up to 30 minutes, and improved battery life, since it holds two of the new NP-W126S Li-Ion Battery Packs in addition to the one in the camera. It also offers a 3.5mm headphone jack to allow for audio monitoring, especially useful when a 3.5mm microphone is plugged into the camera body.
Weather-sealed and able to perform in freezing 14°F environments, the X-T2 is built for professional demands. It also offers a larger eyecup for the 0.77x 2.76m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder, which has a base refresh rate of 60 fps and a boost mode of 100 fps for clear viewing. The 3" 1.62m-dot LCD screen has been upgraded with three directions of tilt, for shooting from a variety of odd angles. Additionally, the body's ergonomics have been improved, with locking dials, a large grip, more customization, a Focus Lever joystick, and raised rear buttons.
In terms of video, UHD 4K is recorded at a high 100 Mbps bit rate for high resolution. It is also down-sampled from a 5120 x 2880 resolution, with a 1.17x crop of the sensor for improved detail in the final 3840 x 2160 image. It can even record in True 24.00 and can record internally for up to 10 minutes. Additionally, it has HDMI output for uncompressed 4:2:2 8-bit footage with an external recorder. Other adjustments can be made as well, including highlight and shadow tone, color, and sharpness.
Alongside the camera is the EF-X500 Flash, which is a new flagship product that includes high-speed sync for the latest camera models. It is weather- and dust-resistant, to match the camera, and offers a powerful guide number of 164' at ISO 100 and 105mm. The zoom range of 24-105mm matches 16-70mm in APS-C lenses, and offers versatile coverage. It also features full bounce and swivel capabilities and sports an LED light for working in video. Additionally, it introduces a wireless TTL system with four channels and three groups for remote communication and triggering of multiple flash units via an optical pulse.
