For the unseen photography
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 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
*in High Performance mode
The X-Pro2 features a new CPU for high-speed
processing. The Buffer memory has also been increased for an even faster response.
The unique random colour filter array reduces moiré and
false colours without the need for an optical low-pass filter.

Start-up time
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 super-fast 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.

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.
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.
Film Simulation
The foundation of Film Simulation colour reproduction
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.
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.
Classic Chrome Film Simulation
Electronic Rangefinder
Electronic Rangefinder (ERF) simultaneously displays a small EVF window in the optical viewfinder.
Compose images in the viewfinder using
one of three different viewing options
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.
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-ofview, 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.
Finder switching lever on the front of the body - easy to operate while shooting
Eyesight Adjustment
Depth of Field Scale
Advanced optical viewfinder system
Depth of Field scale supports zone
focusing in MF
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 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 Depth of Field Scale, displayed as a blue bar in
the distance index, gives a visual guide when
manually pre-focusing.
Advanced MF Mode
AF Point Expantion
Driving MF forward
Phase Detection AF area expanded to 7x7
Focusing system combines fast and
accurate AF with simple MF
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.
The X-Pro2 comes equi­
pped 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 impro­
ved dramatically.
Focus Lever
Focus Lever allows you to instantly change
the focus area
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.
Clicking the focus lever in the centre will instantly return the focus area back to the central point.
A body design that maximises practicality
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.
Exposure Compensation
Dual-Functioned Dial
Exposure compensation dial in
the C position
One dial for both ISO and shutter speed
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.
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.
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
For more comfortable handling
Highly customizable menus
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.
Precise exposure settings that cannot
be made with dials are now possible.
The re-designed GUI is now easier to
see and use.
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.
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 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
Images can be copied between SD cards within
the camera, making image data backup possible
without a PC.
Magnesium Body
Durable magnesium body
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.
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.
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.
