Fujifilm X-Pro2 | George Schaub

Lab Review lab tests and comments supplied by BetterNet, Shutterbug’s TIPA-affiliated testing lab.Shutterbug is the sole US representative within TIPA, a worldwide association of photo and imaging magazines.Just like the Fujifilm X-Pro1, which was introduced in 2012, the new Fujifilm X-Pro2 mirrorless camera is based on an APS-C sensor, but it uses a completely new version of the “X-Trans CMOS” sensor and now offers 24 megapixels instead of 16MP. The X-Pro2 is the first camera of Fujifilm’s X system that uses this new sensor. (Note: The new X-E2S still uses the 16MP version sensor.)One new feature in the X-Pro2, aside from higher resolution, is the use of circuit lines based on copper instead of aluminum, which allows for a faster, more effective data throughput and is one reason why the signal-to-noise ratio of the X-Pro2 is improved even though the pixel density of the chip is higher. Our tests revealed excellent noise results at even high ISO speed settings. (Note: Due to its new structure and its higher speed, the new sensor should be able to record videos in 4K resolution, but, according to Fujifilm representatives, the X-Pro2 will stay a “Full HD” video camera and will not be able to record 4K sequences even with firmware updates in the future.)…..
