I received quite a bit of reaction to my blog post yesterday concerning the X-T2. Last night I attended the VIP event in NYC for the formal “unveiling” of the camera. It was a great party and it was great to see my good friends at FUJIFILM as well as other folks I know and respect in our industry
It sure was fun getting to shoot this camera for a few months before its formal announcement last night.I would like to thank my friends at FUJIFILM for the opportunity. I hope in some small way those of us who go to test the X-T2 and send along results to Fuji made a difference.
I got a lot of comments and requests to post more images I made using the X-T2.. I really tried to put the X-T2 through its paces. While in the Palouse region of Eastern Washing I photographer a crop duster flying over an adjacent field.. Along with the X-T2 I used the Fujinon 100-400mm with and without the 2X converter. The image below is Meta Data
016:06:09 06:51:36…..100-400mm @ 400mm 600mm (in 35mm film)
1/8000 sec, f8 ISO: 2000
WHAT WAS AMAZING TO ME WAS :in Wide Tracking the camera completely locked in and auto-focused perfectly at F8 !!!! impressive.
Anyhow below are some images showing the detail and ability to render what is to me a visible improvement over the X-T1, which is a very decent camera. All Monochrome images were made using the new ACROS film simulation setting…..Enjoy!!!-JG
