Sony’s A7R II may be the darling of the camera world at the moment, but it doesn’t mean other camera makers are standing still.
Fujifilm’s new X-Pro2 is a monster in its own right, even though it doesn’t shoot 4K video. If you own an X-Pro1 and are invested in Fujinon X-Mount lenses, it’s worth upgrading to the X-Pro2.
The camera’s body is dust and splash-resistant with 61 points of weather sealing; it’s also freeze-resistant up to 14 degrees Fahrenheit. You won’t be able to go swimming with the X-Pro2, but it can survive a heavy downpour and trip to the beach.
Every component inside the X-Pro2 is a boost over the X-Pro1. A new 24.3-megapixel (up from 16.3-megapixels) X-Trans CMOS III sensor is powered by the X-Processor Pro image processor, which is also new. The camera’s autofocus locks on subjects in 0.08 seconds and continuous shooting is a speedy 8 frames per second (compared to 3 fps on X-Pro1). The X-Pro2’s ISO is 100-51200.
And if you love shooting timelapses, the built-in interval timer can shoot up to 999 frames.
