Fujifilm X-T2 Review – A Touchscreen Display Would Have Been Nice



The Fujifilm X-T2 is the brand’s second high-end compact camera to grace the market, and it is designed to be good siblings with the company’s own X-Pro2. For its features, it includes a 24.-3megapixel X-Trans APS-C CMOS sensor, 4K video shooting capabilities, and an array of other pleasing functionalities. However, what it doesn’t have is an anti-aliasing filter and a touchscreen display. If it did have these features, then it would have a better chance of being the best compact digital camera on the market to-date.

The Fujifilm X-T2 Would Have Been the Best if Not for Some Shortcomings

When it comes to design, the Fujifilm X-T2 is chunkier as compared to the flatter styling of the X-Pro2. In fact, it might be that this particular model was designed with the inspiration of having it look similar to that of a full-blown DSLR. For photographers who are trying to learn the ins-and-outs of photography, take note that there are a lot of dials and buttons to fiddle around here. Each of those controls provide quick access to a number of different settings.

Looking at the front of the X-T2 , you will be able to quickly switch between different focusing modes, them being single AF, continuous AF, or manual focus. While still looking at the camera’s front, you can find the shutter-release button, along with a scrolling dial. This scrolling dial can be used to take advantage of different functionalities, depending on which shooting mode you’re on.

For professional photographers that do not want to carry around really heavy DSLRs, you will be pleased to know that there are two SD card slots for this model. You can even set the camera up for one SD card to only save still photos whereas the other will save backups (because you can never be too sure). Otherwise, you can use one SD card to save RAW files, whereas the other will save in JPEG format.

As mentioned earlier, the Fujifilm X-T2 doesn’t have a touch capacitive screen, which is quite a shame since this is a high-end digital camera. However, the display is sharp and clear enough, and you can see a bunch of information on it to help you with your shots. Speaking of shots, image performance when taking stills and shooting videos are nothing short of excellent. Details are plenty, and the colors are pretty much the way you would want them to be.
