Fujifilm X-Pro2 Preview – Unique finder further improved




Four years after the announcement of the X-Pro1, Fujifilm presented the long-awaited sequel to this classic looking, compact system camera. Fujifilm Europe organized a session for the Dutch press, so they could get a first impression of the X-Pro2. We were given a detailed presentation and an hour the opportunity to shoot with the new camera in the Louwman Museum in The Hague. Before stabbing shore, we look to go back on the X-Pro1.

Fujifilm X-Pro2

The X-Pro1 was an important camera Fujifilm. The camera system, which was presented in early 2012, the brand was able to play again in the spotlight at serious photographers. In the years that preceded it, Fujifilm slipped into a brand that was especially known for his budget compacts, while the historically correct one of the best known names in the world of photography. Between 2000 and 2006, Fujifilm brought some SLRs on the market. Although these were good because the large dynamic range, the brand never managed to gain a large market share with DSLR’s.

The X-series Fujifilm blew himself back into life. The first step in that process was made in 2010, when Fujifilm at Photokina the X100 showed with fixed lens, but the X-Pro1 interchangeable lens puts the brand truly back on the map. Although Fujifilm has not been idle, the X-Pro2 has had a long time coming. In the meantime, were X-T1 and X-T10 released, which are more traditional compact system cameras, which the brand wants to persuade especially owners of digital SLR to switch.

The Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-Pro2 differ from all other system cameras on the market because of their special, hybrid viewfinder, which can display both optical and electronic image. That page has been improved in the X-Pro2 on several fronts, and also it is the first Fujifilm camera with 24-megapixel sensor. Until now, the manufacturer CMOS sensor with 16 million pixels used.
