Rob Sanderson takes a look at Fujifilm’s new X-T2 mirrorless camera while on a photowalk with X Ambassador Matt Hart. For most, this is the first time they got to see Fuji’s new camera in the flesh and more importantly get their hands on it.
Matt briefs the attendees on street photography before we set off on our Fujiholics photowalk.

I didn’t have very long with the XT2 to really put it through its paces. My initial impressions are that the focus speed is tremendous and a step forward from my X pro2. The XT2 locked onto its subjects and tracked them perfectly right through to the point of capture – it didn’t miss a thing. As the XT1, the Fuji XT2 controls are beautifully laid out and exactly where you’d want them to be. The XT benefits from the focus point selection joystick of the X pro2 making focus selection fast and easy. Another of my favourite features from the X pro 2 finds its way across to the XT2 is the exposure compensation ‘C’ setting which makes altering exposure even faster than the XT1.
Fuji XT2 is as you would expect a lovely camera to use, I really enjoyed my short time with it as did the other attendees.
The viewfinder is one large and bright and one of my favourite highlights of the XT2. Needless to say…. I WANT ONE!
Finally, here is an image I took with the Fuji XT2 during my 15 minutes. On board was my trusty 23mm f1.4
