Just recently, when I shared the rumor of the touch screen on the X-T20, I also said that I didn’t believe the Fujifilm X-T20 will shoot 4K Video. Of course it was just my personal guess… and of course I was wrong ;)
In fact, a source contacted me and said I better correct my speculation, since the Fujifilm X-T20 will be 4K capable.
One of the big steps forward Fujifilm did with the X-T2, is Video. The combination X-TransIII sensor + X-processor Pro seems to deliver quite amazing 4K results. The lastest review that confirms this comes from videographer eoshd here. He says:
The original X-T1 had the worst video quality around. The X-T2 has the best overall on any APS-C camera.
The X-T2 delivers THE best 4K image overall. Better colour response than the Sony A6300 and A6500 and way less rolling shutter.
The trick for maxing out dynamic range on the X-T2 is to slightly under-expose and set both highlight tone and shadow tone to -2 in-camera along with sharpness to -4.
But at the end, eosHD also says that “the X-Pro2 has more X appeal, a nicer design and more innovative viewfinder concept. I wish this model had 4K and an articulated screen but Fuji made the bet that one audience wouldn’t want it and the other audience would.”
Lot’s of great feedback about the Fujifilm X-T2 so far. The Stills are great (no surprise), the Autofocus Tracking and Accuracy seems to be vastly improved (see TCSTV Video Review) and big surprise… 4K shooting works. No moiré, no overheating, sharp and nice images.
The Fujifilm X-T2 is Fujifilm’s most complete camera… and if all the initial excellent feedback will get confirmed in future reviews, then it might be one of the best mirrorless allrounder out there… if not the best. And if only the X-Pro2 could get those AF tracking custom settings, too….
So let’s continue our X-T2 Coverage:
