Let’s start 2016 in the same way as 2015 ended: with lot’s of rumors :-) . So here are more X-Pro2 specs:

  • lossless RAW compression
  • 273 Focus Points
  • Improved Noise Reduction (sounds like we are going to get rid of waxy skin tones at high ISO in jpeg’s ;) )
  • Pixel Mapping
  • Grain Effect
  • New Menu Interface
  • The X-Pro2 will use Fujifilm NP-W126 batteries (for the best cheap 3rd party batteries, check out this post).
  • EXR III processor will get the much cooler name “X-processor”.

And just in case you had a good & fun time here on Fujirumors with all the rumors in the last months, feel free to support my rumor work on January 15, by purchasing the X-Pro2 using one of the links to stores I’ll share here on Fujirumors. You will not pay a singly penny more on your X-Pro2, but a small commission is valued back to Fujirumors.

Your support could allow me to keep this blog open also in 2016.

stay tuned,
