After months of speculation, it appears a final list of detailed specs have leaked for Fujifilm’s upcoming successor to its X-Pro1 camera, the X-Pro2. And from the looks of it, the X-Pro2 is going to be one heck of a camera for Fujifilm users to add to their arsenal.
Lining up with almost every spec rumored over the past year, the yet-to-be-announced camera will get a boost in megapixels, jumping from 16.3MP to 24.3MP via Fujifilm’s third-generation X-Trans CMOS III sensor.
The specs also show a completely revamped intelligent hybrid phase detection autofocus system with 273 points, a massive improvement over its predecessor’s 49-point system. Another welcomed addition is one extra stop of ISO sensitivity, with a maximum of ISO 12,800.
For those who like to have as much data as possible, Fuji has included a new Lossless compression 14bit RAW, which should help to conserve as much information as possible (although still compressed).
Below are the leaked specs in their entirety:
• 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor
• X Processor Pro image processor
• Advanced hybrid viewfinder with automatic magnification switching function
• Maximum mechanical shutter of 1/8000s (1/32000s electronic shutter)
• Flash synch speed: 1/250s
• Intelligent 273-point hybrid phase detection AF
• Lightweight magnesium alloy body. Dust- and water-proof
• 3″ LCD monitor with 1.62 million dots
• Dual SD cards slot (UHS-II compatible)
• ISO range: 200–12,800
• 16 film simulation modes (new ACROS mode)
• New menu (customizable “my menu” function)
• Lossless compression 14bit RAW
• Wi-Fi remote shooting
• Exposure compensation +/- 5
• Interval shooting
• Video full HD 60fps
• 13 creative filters
• NP–126W battery capable of 350 shots
It might not be a revolutionary change, but when you create a camera as well received as the X-Pro1, evolutionary improvements are more than enough to keep interest amongst consumers.
What features are you most looking forward to? Are the updated specs enough to make you jump ship from the DSLR world?
