Fujifilm X-T2, the Ultimate 4K Mirrorless For Narrative Filmmakers… and more (miXed zone)

The Video

Recently, I’ve shared a rather negative miXed zone, with stories of people, who sold their X-series cameras. And one of the main reasons for people to give back their Fuji was “video”.

And indeed, for many years, “video” was the weak spot of the X-series.

The problem? As top Fujifilm Manager (and also FujiRumors Lover) Toshihisa Iida said here, the X-Trans sensor requires a 20-30% increase in processing power compared to conventional Bayer sensors… and older EXR I and II processors simply could not process appropriately all the video data.

But things changed with the much faster X-Processor Pro, which dramatically improved the video output of Fujifilm cameras such as the X-T2 and X-Pro2.

Sure, there are still areas, where Fujifilm can improve (such as offering internal F-log), but the X-T2 & Co are finally used with great success by many videographers… and I will share one of them in today’s roundup… including some video-centric articles on Fujirumors you might have missed.
