The X-Pro2 has incorporated an optical viewfinder and an electronic viewfinder into a world first Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder, offering advantages of three viewing options – a 100% field of view, a 2.5x magnification, and 6x magnification.

The new X-Processor Pro has increased the speed and imaging processing abilities of the X-Pro2, making the processing speeds up to four times faster than its predecessor, the X-Pro1. As well as improving start-up time to 0.4 seconds, shooting interval of just 0.25 seconds, shutter time lag of 0.05 seconds, and autofocus speeds as fast as 0.06 seconds. Working with the new 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor – which features the highest pixel count of any of the X Series cameras, the X-Processor delivers the highest quality images, at the fastest possible speeds. The added second SD card slot makes it far easier to continually take photos and know that there is an abundance of space still left, and risk of losing the perfect photo changing SD cards to a minimum.

The X-Pro2 boasts a new mechanical shutter speed with up to 150,000 shot durability. A new maximum shutter speed of 1/8000 second, and a flash sync speed of 1/250 second – an improvement on the X-Pro1 which offered a shutter speed of 1/4000 second, and flash sync speed of 1/180 second.

The X-Pro2 won’t let the weather or harsh locations deter it from taking the best photos. A 61-point seal on the new magnesium allow body makes the X-Pro2 weather-proof, dust-proof, splash-resistant, and also still able to be operated in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius.

Accessories for the X-Pro2 include: Li-ion battery NP-W126, Battery Charger BC-W126, Shoulder strap, Body cap, Strap clip, Protective cover, Clip attaching tool, and Owner’s manual. The FUJIFILM X-Pro2 will be available February 2016 at a starting price of AUD$2699.
