The long-awaited Fujifilm X-Pro2 finally a letter arrived, becoming the new flagship X system's see what exactly is different from the previous generation bezlusterkowca.
Fujifilm X-Pro1 is shown in January 2012, being the first bezlusterkowcem offered by the Japanese manufacturer. Then the equipment was absolutely crucial; specification suggested that we are dealing with the most advanced ILC in the world. Using the shabby cliché – time passed. Potential customers and fans of the brand were waiting for an update Viewed rumors again and again sharpening his teeth on the highly anticipated successor. This, as it turns out, came only after four years and, at first glance, it's hard to talk about revolution. Let's take a closer look, however.
Construction, seals, ergonomics
X-Pro2 is enclosed in a housing sealed in 61 places, resistant to adverse weather conditions. The camera is so resistant to rain or snow (also withstand temperatures down to -10 degrees). Delicate mechanisms wither closed in the middle of the dust. X-Pro1, however, did not have any of these securities.novelties in the model prepared for 2016 are also distinctive, located at the rear of the joystick, the refreshed menu system, gently remodeled grip and extra knob on the front of the camera. A practical advantage is to introduce a second slot for SD / SDHC / SDXC. The dimensions of the X-Pro2 remained similar to its predecessor. Weight "grew" by 45 grams.
Matrix. The new mean better?
X-Pro2 is based on a 24.3-megapixel third generation (X-Trans CMOS III), while the X-Pro1 was based on the sensor 16 megapixel. Both elements are characterized by the APS-C format, but without a doubt, the new camera will feature reduced noise and improved detail.
Faster image processor
EXR in the old vs. the X-Pro in the new model. Fujifilm was the first to use this unit, declaring it to be faster, better processes the image that guarantees more careful color reproduction and wider tonal range – and not from EXR with the X-Pro1, but also from the next-generation processor, the EXR II. This translates to include on the possibility of introducing continuous shooting at 8 fps. / sec.
A wider ISO range
Comparing the two above-mentioned elements, X-Pro2 boasts supported the sensitivity range from 200 to 12800 in native mode and from 100 to 51200 after enlargement. When compared with the X-Pro1, we get a noticeable advantage here, because this had to ISO 100-6400 range.
The hybrid viewfinder in the X-Pro1 itself is great. The manufacturer left in the X-Pro2 similar size viewfinder, but raised the resolution EVF to a level of 2.36 million points (with a ceiling of 1.44 million points). On the plus side, the frequency of projection, the current amount of 85 frames / sec., And therefore approx. 30 percent. more than x-Pro1. New gains in addition to the presence of the electronic rangefinder, as well as higher readability. Complete personnel see now looking even at a distance of 16 mm from the window.
LCD screen with a little bit higher resolution
Section 1.62 million versus 1.23 million points. And it's so much improvement, because the display is still stationary and niedotykowy.
The redesigned autofocus
We had a 49-point system based on contrast detection. Now we have a 273-point hybrid system, of which 77 points utilizes phase detection, better examination in AF-C tracking.Members X-Pro1 most frequently complained just for auto focus. Now, as we can infer from the specifications, the reasons for criticism will be much less.
Filters and effects
Well, in the X-Pro2 is more. Normally we get 15 filters that simulate analog action films (10 in the X-Pro1), there's also a new effect simulating analog grain.
Faster shutter speed
Great message. Minimum mechanical shutter speed is 1/8000 sec, which Fujifilm came to the same ceiling, which ends the possibility of a large part of professional SLRs. What's more, we see here the electronic shutter, working with a minimum time equal to 1/32000 sec.
Just it is. The X-Pro1 was not.
The movie mode – more options klatkażu
60, 50, 30, 25 and 24 frames / sec. – This option offers the X-Pro2 at Full HD resolution. Possibilities X-Pro1 are noticeably more modest, finishing up a 24 cl. / Sec.
Fujifilm X-Pro2 will go on sale in February of this year, priced at US $ 1699.95.
