For the unseen photography
X- Pro2
The X-Pro2: delivering a new level of X-series photo quality by combining
the brand new X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro engine
A commitment to photographic creativity,
developed from more than 80 years of film
As a film manufacturer, Fujifilm has conducted exhaustive
research into delivering photo quality results for more than
80 years. Without this experience, it would have been
impossible to come up with the technical capability to reproduce
colours and tones that emphasise the texture of the subject and
deliver a three-dimensional look to images.
The creative attributes of film that cannot be measured by
resolution alone are alive and well in the X-Pro2.
The first model to feature a newly-developed
sensor for outstanding image quality
The newly-developed 24.3MP X-Trans
CMOS III APS-C sensor boasts the highest
ever pixel count for an X-Series camera.
Combined with an XF lens, it delivers
images with a perceived resolution far
greater than the number of pixels used.
In addition, the phase detection pixels
have been positioned over a larger area
for a faster, more precise phase detection AF performance. High ISO sensitivity performance has also been improved
to the point that the whole sensitivity
range – up to the maximum ISO 12,800
– can now be used with confidence.
The sensor readout speed is now approximately twice as fast, delivering high-speed continuous
shooting, precise AF tracking, playback and higher quality movies.
The unique random colour filter array reduces moiré
and false colours without the need for an optical
low-pass filter.

Grainy Effect
Two strengths of grain effects
The X-Pro2 has the ability to reproduce graininess typically unique to
film-based images. There are two strengths: Strong or Weak, which can
be combined with each of the different Film Simulation modes. The effects are also possible through in-camera RAW development.
ACROS Film Simulation
The X-Pro2 features the new ACROS Film Simulation
mode. Its features include smoother gradation, deep
blacks and beautiful textures. Ultra high-quality
monochrome images are possible, adding extra creativity to the general monochrome mode.
New processing engine increases speed and image processing capabilities
Thanks to the newly-developed X-Processor
Pro engine, processing speeds are now approximately four times faster than a conventional model. This maximises the capabilities
of the X-Trans CMOS III sensor to ensure it
delivers the highest image quality with superfast response times. In addition, thanks to the
high-speed reading technology of the sensor,
the conventional EVF's display speed of 54fps
has been increased to a maximum of 85fps*.
This substantially reduces the image delay
phenomenon when tracking a moving subject.
Blackout time after release has also been reduced by approximately half and compressed
RAW is supported, improving the ease-of-handling of RAW data.

Film Simulation
The foundation of Film Simulation
colour reproduction
Using the knowledge gained from accurately reproducing colour in film
manufacturing, Film Simulation allows the user to change colour and tone
settings to match the subject, scene and creative intent, just as if shooting with a roll of film. There are a total of 15 modes including PROVIA /
Standard, Velvia / Vivid and ASTIA / Soft.
The X-Pro2 features a new CPU for high-speed processing. The Buffer memory has also been increased for an even faster response.
Classic Chrome Film Simulation
Compose images in the viewfinder using
one of three different viewing options
Focusing system combines fast and
accurate AF with simple MF
Photographers love looking through a viewfinder to take
photos, which is why X-Series models have used finders
from the very start. Combining the advantages of both an
OVF and an EVF, Fujifilm has perfected the Advanced
Hybrid Multi Viewfinder with three viewing options. Now
you can return to the roots of photography with the only
viewfinder of its kind in the world.
Accentuate your subject. For photographers, focusing is
an important job. Although AF now reacts faster than the
human eye, the appeal and level of trust in MF will never
disappear. Manually operating the focus ring to pick out a
specific element in the frame is often crucial. Speed isn't
always everything.
Electronic Rangefinder
Electronic Rangefinder (ERF) simultaneously displays a small EVF window in the optical viewfinder.
The EVF is simultaneously displayed as a
small window in the optical viewfinder. It
can be displayed in three different ways:
100% field of view, 2.5x magnification
and 6x magnification. This allows the user
to check focus, the angle-of-view, exposure
and white balance in real-time, even when
taking photos through the OVF. As it can
also be used with MF assist, precise MF is
possible in the OVF mode.
Advanced MF Mode
AF Point Expantion
Driving MF forward
Phase Detection AF area expanded to 7x7
The X-Pro2 comes equipped
with different types of MF
assist including Digital Split
Image, which is reminiscent of old rangefinders,
and Focus Peaking where
colour is used to show the
parts of the image that
are in focus.
Digital Split Image can be selected in both monochrome
and colour options
The motion prediction algorithm has also been improved
making fast, precise continuous tracking possible.
The number of selectable
focusing points has been
expanded from 49 on previous models to 77. Approximately 40% of the imaging area is now covered by
fast, precise phase detection AF pixels, which means
focusing speeds when photographing moving subjects
have improved dramatically.

Focus Lever allows you to instantly change
the focus area
The Depth of Field Scale
can be selected for film
reference display in addition to conventional pixel
reference. With film reference, photo viewing from
printing becomes a prerequisite for depth display, allowing the user to use it in
a sense of depth of field
similar to film photos.
The new Focus Lever on the back of the camera can be moved like
a joystick in eight directions to instantly move the focus area. Now,
rapid focus area changes can be made, even when composing an
image. Not only is this available to move the AF point during AF
mode, but it can also be used during MF mode to quickly move the
enlarged display area when using MF assist.
The optical design of the
viewfinder has been improved, moving the eye point
from 14mm on the previous model to 16mm. A diopter correction dial is also
included, which makes the
viewfinder even more comfortable to use.
Optical viewfinder diopter correction is not only available on
the EVF, but also when using the OVF and ERF.
The Depth of Field Scale, displayed as a blue bar in the distance index, gives a visual guide when manually pre-focusing.
Clicking the focus lever in the centre will instantly return the focus area back to the central point.
A body design that maximises practicality
Tough conditions are no longer to be
feared. The X-Pro2 can be relied upon to
take a picture at any time in any conditions.
No photographer wants to take their eye from the
viewfinder for fear of missing the perfect shot. With this
in mind, key design aspects have been concentrated on the
camera's right side. The major exposure settings are
available on a dial for quick fingertip control. Changes
can also be made while the camera is switched off, so
users will always be ready for the next photo opportunity.
Thanks to the simplicity of the X-Pro2, you'll soon be
creating masterpieces.
Reliability is one of the most important considerations
when choosing a camera, so the X-Pro2 needs to work at
any moment, regardless of where you are and what type of
scene you want to photograph. That's why the camera
body is made from magnesium and features a dust-proof,
splash-proof and freezeproof structure, along with a
highly durable focal plane shutter and dual card slot.

The shutter speed and ISO dials
have now been combined into one
dial, which is reminiscent of those
found on old film cameras. Changing the ISO is done by lifting the
outer portion of the dial. Now all
exposure settings can be performed
with dials.
The X-Pro2 is the first mirrorless camera to offer dual SD card slots
for highly reliable data storage. Slot 1 is compatible with UHS-II
standards for excellent write
speeds. One of three recording methods can be selected: sequential, backup and
RAW / JPEG sorting.
The X-Pro2 comes equipped with a focal plane shutter boasting a
durability of 150,000 shots, a maximum speed of 1/8000 sec and a
flash sync speed of 1/250sec.
Furthermore, the camera also
includes an electronic shutter
with completely silent operation and a maximum speed of
1/32,000 sec, allowing users
to select maximum apertures
even in bright conditions.
Images can be copied between SD cards within the camera, making image data backup possible without a PC.
Reliable mechanical shutter. The X-Pro2 can be set to Mechanical + Electronic mode, automatically switching to an electronic shutter when the correct exposure exceeds 1/8000 sec. in Aperture Priority (AE) mode.
As it's used so frequently, exposure
compensation has been made into a
dual-purpose dial. Compensation up
±3 stops in 1/3 steps is possible even
with the camera to your eye thanks to
the dial's knurled shape. But if the C
position is selected, exposure compensation of up to ±5 stops is possible using the front command dial.
Accurate exposures are possible, even in situations with large variations in brightness,
thanks to ±5 stops of exposure compensation.
In addition to Auto (A), Low (L) and High
(H), manual selections can be made from
ISO 200-12,800.
Front Command Dial
Great Versatility
Magnesium Body
For more comfortable handling
Highly customizable menus
Durable magnesium body
The X-Pro2 features a new front
command dial. It is used to set intermediate shutter speeds that are
not available on the shutter speed
dial when shooting in Manual or
Shutter Speed Priority modes. It's
also used to shift programmed exposure combinations when shooting in
Program mode.
A maximum of 16 frequently used
menu items can be registered to the
new My Menu feature. When combined with the Q Menu, which instantly brings up the main menu,
and the six Fn Buttons, a total of 38
shortcuts can be created for a truly
impressive level of customization.
Coated in the same half-matt paint as the X-Pro1, the luxurious
body of this new flagship model is made from highly robust magnesium alloy, which feels both solid and reliable in the hand. The
dials are milled from aluminum and operating with a re-assuring
click. In addition, the X-Pro2 has many pre-requisites of a professional camera, including dust-resistance, water-resistance and
the ability to work in low-temperatures thanks to the XX weatherproof seals around the body. Shoot with confidence, no matter
what the weather.
Precise exposure settings that cannot be
made with dials are now possible.
The re-designed GUI is now easier to see
and use.
