The all-new Fujifilm X-series, the X-T2  have been released a few days ago. It is turning heads! People are raving about this compact mirrorless camera, which according to spec, stack well up to pro-DSLRs like the Canon 5D Mark III . We hope to get a review body from the nice guys at Fuji, within the next week. 

The X-T2 brings with it the 24MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor with the X-Processor Pro engine, which apparently have a massive dynamic range. Initial claims are that you would be able to overexpose, and underexpose with up to 5 stops; then completely recover it in post processing. The sensor also boasts the 169 phase-detection AF Points from the X-Pro2, including another two columns of 13 AF points on each side for a total of 325 AF Points.Fujifilm X-T2

In terms of ISO sensitivity, it ranges from a native 200 to 12800, which can be extended from 100 to 51200

In case you are afraid of running out of power, you can acquire the VPB-XT2 Vertical Power Booster Grip for this camera, which will also bump up your continuous shooting from 8 FPS to 11 FPS. You can also be assured in knowing you won’t run out of space through using its Dual UHS-II SD Slots. This is a welcome addition for Pro shooters who would like to backup their images to a second card while shooting. 

In regards to video, it is equipped with 4K UHD Video, a first for Fujifilm cameras, at a 100 Mbps! Internally it can record for 10 minutes which can be boosted up 30 minutes when used in conjunction with its battery grip.
