French Presidential Candidate Stops Interview and Asks “Is This the Fujifilm X-T2?”…. and He Ends Up Photographing the Journalist!


A little Sunday curiosity.

The story is about an interview with Presidential Candidate and former French Prime Minister François Fillon. Just an ordinary interview, like hundreds of others…. until the moment, where the politician, who happens to be also a photo enthusiast, sees the camera of the Photographer, interrupts the interview and asks: “Is this the Fujifilm X-T2“. The Journalist gives him his X-T2 and, with his smartphone, takes some snapshots of F. Fillon handling Fujifilm’s flagship.

Will we have a new X-shooter very soon? Did you like the X-T2, Mr. Fillon? Well, then good luck, because the X-T2 is almost impossible to find in stock :P

Thanks to the FR-reader, who spotted the story at the French Journal du Dimanche (google translated)
