Inputs and Outputs Notes
Overview: The Fujifilm X-T2 is part of the X-series
interchangeable lens digital cameras. It has the Fujifilm X-mount, and is
compatible with XF-series lenses. This package includes
the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 R LM OIS water-resistant zoom lens.
Compatible Lenses: The X-T2 is compatible with Fujinon XF
prime lenses (23mm,
which offer precise control over depth-of-field and excellent
out-of-focus bokeh, due to the design of the molded aperture diaphragm blades.
In addition, Fujinon XF zoom lenses (16-55mm,
100-400mm) provide crystal clear images near and far. The XF-series lenses
feature special weather sealing to make them water- and dust-resistant.
Solid Body Construction: The X-T2's body is constructed of
magnesium, making it solid, but lightweight. The body is weather-sealed in 63
places to make it highly resistant to dust and moisture. The X-T2 also has the
ability to work in extreme temperatures, down to 14°F
3" LCD Monitor:
The X-T2 has a 3" color LCD
monitor with 1.04-million dots and approximately 100% horizontal
and vertical coverage in the shooting mode. The monitor features 3-way tilting
for better visibility while framing high-angle or low-angle shots from either
landscape and portrait orientation. You can vary the amount of information
displayed on the monitor from a full info display to "Information Off".
0.5" OLED Viewfinder: The camera is equipped with a 0.5"
Organic LED (OLED) viewfinder with 2.36-million dots and a magnification ratio
of 0.77x. It has a horizontal viewing angle of 31° and a display time lag of
only 0.005 seconds. An
eye sensor on the viewfinder automatically turns on the viewfinder and turns off
the LCD monitor when you bring the camera up to your eye, and turns it off when
you take it away. The viewfinder has a diopter
correction dial that allows you to adjust the strength of the viewfinder to your eyesight.
The X-T2 features the new 23.5mm x 15.6mm APS-C format, X-Trans CMOS III image sensor with
24.3-million effective pixels. It has a highly random pixel array that
effectively reduces moiré and false colors without using an optical low-pass
filter. The new sensor delivers faster high-speed continuous shooting and
high-precision AF tracking. The new X-Processor Pro image processor is about
four times faster than the previous model, offering increased buffer memory for
faster response and shorter delays between shots. The X-T2 offers blazing 0.06
second AF speed, 0.045 second shutter time lag, 0.3 second start-up time, and up
to 14-fps continuous shooting speed.
Recording Media: Still images and movies can be recorded onto
optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards, including ultra-high-speed UHS-II
format SD cards. Cards with a UHS speed class of 3 or better are recommended for recording movies. No memory cards are included with the
Dual Card Slots: The X-T2 has two SD card slots. In the
menu, you can choose how the images are saved on the cards:
- Sequential: At the default setting, the camera will
save photos and videos to the card in Slot 2 only when the card in Slot 1 is
full. If desired, you can designate the card in Slot 2 to be filled first.
- Backup: Each photo/video is recorded to both cards
simultaneously, creating a backup copy.
- RAW/JPEG: In this mode, RAW images are saved to the
card in Slot 1, while JPEG images are saved to the card in Slot 2. You can
choose which of the two cards are used to save recorded movies.
Note: You can also copy pictures from one card to the
other in either direction.
Still Image Quality: The X-T2 records still images in JPEG
format in 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect
ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine or Normal). In addition, RAW images can be
recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor.
RAW format images can be processed on a computer using the downloadable RAW File
Converter application software, or converted to JPEG in the camera. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the
same time, with separate RAW and JPEG files recorded and stored.

brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure a total of 19 steps from -3.0 to +3.0 EV in 1/3
EV steps. When the dial is set to Custom (C), you can adjust the Exposure Compensation
from -5.0 to +5.0 EV using the front command dial.
Bracketing: You can take a series of photos with varying
settings for each picture. Bracketing options include:
- AE: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will
take multiple shots, one using the metered value for
exposure, some overexposed by the selected amount (+/- 3 EV in 1/3 EV steps), and
underexposed by the same amount.
- ISO: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will
take multiple shots, one using the current sensitivity setting, some with
the sensitivity raised by the selected amount (1/3, 2/3, 1 EV), and the
others with the sensitivity lowered.
- Film Simulation: Each time the shutter is released, the
camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with the three film
simulation settings selected.
- Dynamic Range: Each time the shutter is pressed, the
camera will take three shots, each with different dynamic ranges: 100% for
the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
- White Balance: After selecting a bracketing amount
(+/-1, +/-2, +/-3), the
camera takes one shot and processes it to create three copies: one at the
current white balance setting, one with the fine tuning increased by the
selected amount, and another with the fine tuning decreased by the selected
Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of
pictures using the Continuous Shooting mode. At the High Speed setting, the camera can take
up to 42 pictures at 14 frames per second (electronic shutter), or 83 frames at
8 fps (mechanical shutter). At Low Speed, the camera can take
pictures at approximately 5 fps until the memory card is full. The frame rate
and number of frames per burst may vary depending on the type of memory card
used. Continuous Shooting results are lower when shooting RAW photos.
Multiple Exposures: You can create a photograph that
combines two exposures. After the first shot is taken, it will be shown
superimposed on the view through the lens, and you will be prompted to take the
Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second
or 2-second self timer. The 10 second self timer is recommended for self
portraits, while the 2-second self timer is used to reduce blur caused by the
camera moving when the shutter button is pressed.
Remote Release: You can shoot images using the optional RR-90 Remote Release,
which plugs into the Micro-B USB connector. The RR-90 can be used to take
photos when the camera is on a tripod or for long time-exposures. In addition,
