First Image Tagged #Fujifilm #XT2 on Instagram :: Typo or is this Really the First X-T2 Image Shared Publicly?

Thanks to reliable FujiRumors sources we already know since months that the Fujifilm X-T2 will come this summer.

It’s hard to say the exact month (at the moment the announcement is rumored to be in June), because Fujifilm might decide to push it back a little bit to favor the (currently very strong) X-Pro2 sales. However, Fujifilm feels the pressure of the X-Shooter community to release the X-T2 (as you could read on this interview with Fuji Managers)… they can’t wait too long to release it… Summer release sounds just right for me.

That said, if what I share today with you isn’t a typo, the first Fujifilm X-T2 Pre-Production samples have already been shipped to Beta Testers. In fact there is an image, that Fashion Photographer Felicia Van Ham tagged on Instagram with #XT2 and #Fujifilm (thanks to the FR-reader for the link).

Typo or not? I don’t know.

But what we know thanks to the “X-Pro2 boxes leak” in late October 2015, is that Fujifilm can send pre-production cameras to Beta-Testers at least 2½ or 3 months ahead of the announcement of a new product… and if the June Announcement Rumor is correct, there could be already Beta-Testers out there with an X-T2.

The wait for the X-T2 is not that long anymore… but it seems that this does not influence negatively the X-Pro2 sales, which are currently very strong (“more pre-orders than expected“, as Fujifilm announced here).

Fujifilm X-Pro2 “Reset Issue” :: How to Avoid Your X-Pro2 Customs Settings to be Reset to Factory Settings!



Fujifilm X-Pro2 – IN STOCK CHECK: USA: BHphoto / AmazonUS / Adorama / CANADA: AmazonCA / EUROPE: AmazonDE / AmazonUK / WexUK / PCHstore / AmazonITA / AmazonFR / AmazonESP / AUSTRALIA: CameraPro

_ _ _

There have been several reports here at the Fuji X Forum, about X-shooters setting all the custom functions on their Fujifilm X-Pro2, but they went all lost and the camera reset to the factory settings later on.

The reason for this is that the internal backup battery has not enough power to keep your settings, when the Fujifilm NP-W126 battery is removed or runs out of power (or any third party battery – check out this test about the best third party batteries)

To avoid this issue please ensure to fully charge your battery and do not remove it (or make it run out of power) for the first 24 hours. This will give your X-Pro2 enough time to charge the internal battery, which will then have sufficient power to keep your settings even if the battery is removed or empty.

Also please note, as written in the X-Pro2 Owner’s Manual (which I warmly recommend to read!):

If the battery is removed for an extended period, the camera clock will be reset and the language-selection dialog will be displayed when the camera is turned on.”

If the problem still persists even after letting a charged battery in the X-Pro2 for 24 hours, then you should contact your local Fuji support.

UPDATE: First Feedback from FR-readers in the comments: “The fact is, the battery is NOT the issue. How do I know? Mine reset without removing a fully charged battery for over 18 hours, still not removing it, just switched off the camera to change a lens, and switched it back on. Again, I DID NOT REMOVE THE BATTERY. Let’s be very clear.” If this occurs also to your X-Pro2, keep up sharing in the comments… you know that Fujifilm reads this blog.

You can be sure I’ll keep an eye on it!

If you find what you consider bugs or any issue related to the X-Pro2, feel free to share it here in the comments and/or at the dedicated X-Pro2 section of the Fuji X ForumX-Pro 2 FW 1.0 Problems / Quirks.

I hope this helps every X-Pro2 Shooter to avoid the “reset-issue”… and enjoy shooting with it :-)

Fuji Manager: “We’re not really interested in Medium Format. Focus on lenses!” :: X-Pro2 Review: “Anyone saying there’s no ISO improvement must be smoking something good”

The Spanish site dslrmagazine (translation) met Fuji Managers at the CP+. Here some excerpts from the interview:

There is a little known fact: in Thailand, for example, X-A series outsells Canon!

We are not really interested in the medium format; our intention, for now, is to focus on the lenses. We just announced a 2x teleconverter for the X series, available for the summer.

Today, already offer 21 different lenses. According to our market research, which demand more now users of the system X is a telephoto “prime” and also other wider and more compact lenses like the Fujinon XF 35mm f / 2 R LM WR. And, who knows, maybe also a “fish eye”, and of course, some day, a Tilt & Shift.

I tell you… don’t take that “we are not really interested in medium format” too seriously ;)

X-Pro2 review

Fuji X-Pro2 initial thoughts and a model shoot at mikecroshaw:

AF speed..seemed very good, and a step in my opinion from the X-T1.  The EVF is a joy to use and so smooth now, I used it in a dimly lit pub and it was just superb. I’ve only tested AF-S and single point AF,as that is what I mostly use.  I’ll test the continuous focus when I get a chance in a week or so.

Image quality – top notch as you would expect, I’ve not really tested super high ISOs but I did accidentally shoot a shot at ISO8000 this morning and it looked a lot better than the X-T1 would have.  Anyone saying there is no ISO improvement must be smoking something good.  In terms of real life use, the improvement is totally apparent to me, I don’t care about charts and pixel peeping, if I’m shooting in a dark pub or church with the X-Pro2 using the same lenses as the X-T1 I get better results, that’s all I care about.
