Ever since I moved to a mirrorless from DSLR, I no longer see myself coming back to it. The comfort and quality that a mirrorless camera provides is the reason why I switched to a Fujifilm mirrorless camera and bought an X-M1 and hoping to get my hands on the X-T10 and some lenses(35mm 1.4 lens, 56mm 1.2)
Just recently Fuji new powerful and superior camera lines and premium products in Japan, and now it’s here in the Philippines. – FUJIFILM X-Pro2 premium interchangeable lens camera and the more compact FUJIFILM X70, and two new premium products to its impressive lineup – FUJIFILM X-E2S and the new FUJINON XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR. Present were the X-Photographers and familiar faces from FPPF where I studied basic photography.
But the star of the event were these babies:
X70 is the first X-Series model to offer a touchscreen display that rotates 180 degrees. This would enable users to shoot from various angles and perfect those warranted selfies. The camera also comes with a Fujinon18.5mm F2.8 lens which would be splendid for group shots or spectacular landscapes, seascapes and sunsets adept for the Philippine setting.
X-E2S is the latest rangefinder-style model in the world-renowned X-Series that comes with a durable, compact, and lightweight body with a Real-Time Viewfinder that offers a large display magnification of 0.62x*1 and an electronic viewfinder with the world’s shortest display time lag*2 of 0.005 seconds. Furthermore, X-E2S is also equipped with an AF system that excels at capturing subjects in motion. An evolved version of the X-E2, FUJIFILM X-E2S retains the functionality and rangefinder-style design and adds new features including an improved grip, an electronic shutter and a more intuitive GUI to enhance the user experience.
FUJIFILM X-Pro2 also has a newly developed 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor and high-performance X Processor Pro image processing engine that can deliver stunning images with a perceived resolution far greater than the actual number of pixels used. This camera is also built with magnesium alloy and is tightly sealed in its 61 points. It’s dust-proof, splash-proof and capable of operating in temperatures as low as 10°C. The X-Pro2 also has dual SD card slots which mean more preferable room for your images. It’s also got 4x the processing speed of conventional image processing engines so aside from the increased resolution, you’ll get optimum write speeds, faster start-up time to capture those magical moments and high speed continuous shooting speeds in sports and action shots.
FUJINON XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR expands the range to a super telephoto option. The FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a super telephoto zoom lens that covers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 152-609mm. The high performance optical construction of 21 elements in 14 groups includes five ED lenses and one Super ED lens to help reduce chromatic aberration that often occurs in telephoto lenses.
So there you go, we have around 330 days before Christmas to save up for these babies. Make it count.
