Fuji X-T2 Bundle (no lens included)
24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor mirrorless camera with vertical power booster (Graphite Silver Edition)
Our take on the Fuji X-T2 Bundle (no lens included) by Crutchfield's Deia Z.
X Series excellence
The agile X-T2 elevates your experience of photography and lets you avail yourself of an outstanding line of Fujinon lenses. Fujifilm's obsession with quality is evident in the all-metal construction of the camera's eye-catching body. Extensive weather-sealing adds to its ruggedness, making it great for outdoor use in less-than-favorable conditions.
The X-T2's discreet size and smooth, quiet operation let you keep a low profile when you're out shooting street scenes or candids.
A serious camera for serious photographers and videographers
Thanks to its compact size, the X-T2 is a great camera for travel and everyday photography. But it's a lot more than that. In terms of performance, it's on par with the best mirrorless cameras out there. Its 24.3-megapixel APS-C sized sensor and high-speed processing engine combine to give your photos and videos outstanding color reproduction with high ISO sensitivity and low noise.
The X-T2 captures around 1.8 times the required number of pixels for 4K video and 2.4 times the required data for full HD video. The bottom line: you get exceptional movie quality. Video can be output through HDMI while recording, so you can simultaneously check footage on the LCD or viewfinder and an external monitor.
Get back to basics with a camera that's anything but basic
The X-T2 was designed to bring the joy back into the act of making photographs. When you're caught up in capturing a moment, looking away from what's in front of you to fool with a bunch of settings on the back of a camera can ruin it completely. Well-placed engraved metal dials make it easy to adjust settings on the X-T2 without having to take your eye off the scene. Its bright OLED electronic viewfinder can display all your settings and show you what your final image will look like, so you can stay focused on your subject.
As a renowned manufacturer of color and black and white films for over 80 years, the folks at Fujifilm have a deep understanding of the role color plays in creating memorable photos. The X-T2's 15 different film simulation modes — including the popular PROVIA and Velvia film types — let you use different color tones and gradations to add texture, depth, and atmosphere to your photos and videos.
An advanced autofocus system
The X-T2's high-speed processing power gives it improved autofocus performance over its X Series predecessors. For subjects on the move, AF-C Custom settings let you customize your settings to optimize autofocus according to the type of movement for extra-precise tracking.
Max out your speed capabilities
To take full advantage of the X-T2's speedy autofocus, Fujifilm recommends pairing the camera with one of their "Red Badge" zoom lenses. The X-T2 achieves top performance with the XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR, XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR, and XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR zoom lenses.
Extend your shooting time and boost your camera's performance
The included vertical grip lets you hold and operate the camera in vertical and horizontal positions with comfort and ease. Load up two NP-W126 batteries, and you won't have to worry about running out of juice during extended shooting sessions. The grip is sturdy and weather-sealed, just like the X-T2, so you can use it anywhere.
With the grip attached, the X-T2's unique Boost mode extends 4K video recording time, in addition to improving continuous shooting speed and decreasing shutter lag and blackout time.

Bundle Overview: The Fujifilm X-T2 Bundle includes the X-T2 interchangeable lens camera and the VPB-XT2 Vertical Power Booster Grip. The 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. The VPB-XT2 fits onto the bottom of the camera, and provides handy controls for shooting in the portrait (tall) orientation. It also holds two extra batteries for longer shooting between charges.
Graphite Silver Model: This Graphite Silver model adds a touch of elegance with a three-layer coating. The first layer is a matte black undercoat applied to the magnesium top cover, which makes the highlights stand out. Using Thin-Film Multilayer Coating Technology, the second coat applies graphite silver for a smooth finish with a luxurious shine. Finally a clear varnish coating gives the camera a glossy finish. In addition to the special finish, the X-T2 Graphite Silver edition has a matching silver EF-X8 external flash unit and an aluminum hot shoe cover.
Compatible Lenses: The X-T2 is compatible with Fujinon XF prime lenses (23mm, 35mm, 50mm, 80mm, 90mm) 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, 18-135mm, 50-140mm, 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 (-10°C).
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.
Image Sensor/Processor: 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 camera.
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.

It is also available from Google Play for Android Smartphones and Tablets running Android OS Ver.2.3 and up (6.0 or later to use the Location Services). Fujifilm PC AutoSave is compatible with Windows 10, 8/8.1, 7 (SP1), and Vista (SP2), as well as Macintosh OS X 10.6-10.11 and macOS Sierra.
Q Button: The camera also features a single button that gives you instant access to numerous settings. Pressing the Q Button (Quick Menu) on the rear panel displays a grid of basic settings to choose from. You can create up to seven custom banks of 16 settings each. The settings in each bank can be accessed using the arrow keys, and the options for each setting can be changed by rotating the rear command dial. A total of 24 different settings can be accessed through the Q button.
Function Buttons: The X-T2 has six customizable Function buttons (Fn), that let you choose the functions for each button. The function buttons are located on the front, top, and rear panels, including the four selector buttons surrounding the Menu/OK button. In the menu, you can select from several options to customize the function for each button.
Shooting Modes: The Fujifilm X-T2 lets you set the shutter speed on the camera using the analog dial on the top. The lens aperture can be set on the lens manually using the aperture control ring. The shutter speed and aperture both have an automatic setting. The shutter speed and aperture settings combine for four shooting modes:
|Shooting Mode||Shutter Speed¹||Aperture²|
¹ Shutter Speed Options: Auto, 1/8000, 1/4000, 1/2000, 1/1000, 1/500, 1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, Time (selectable 1/32000 to 15 min), and Bulb (up to 60 minutes)
² Aperture Options: Varies with lens.
ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity using the top mounted dial on the top of the camera. You can set the ISO sensitivity to Auto, or to presets from ISO 200 to 12800 in 1/3 EV increments. Extended settings are equivalent to ISO 100, 125, 160, 25600, and 51200. With the ISO Auto Setting, you can set a Default Sensitivity, a Maximum Sensitivity, and a Minimum Shutter Speed.
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can select Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, Incandescent light, and Underwater (requires waterproof case). In addition, you can measure for a white balance value or display and select from a list of color temperatures.
Film Simulation: The X-T2 can simulate the effects of different kinds of film, including black-and-white. You can select one of the following options:
- Provia/Standard: standard color reproduction
- Velvia/Vivid: a high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited for nature photos
- Astia/Soft: a soft-toned palette of less-saturated colors
- Classic Chrome: soft color and enhanced shadow contrast for a calm look.
- Pro Negative Std: a soft-toned palette. The range of hues available for skin tones is enhanced; a good choice for studio portraits.
- Pro Negative Hi: offers slightly more contrast than Pro Negative Std, making it ideal for outdoor portraits.
- Acros: for taking black-and-white photos with rich gradation and outstanding sharpness.
- Monochrome: standard black-and-white
- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Note: Acros and Monochrome are also available with yellow (Ye), red (R), and green (G) filters, which deepen shades of gray corresponding to the selected color.
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image, you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader color rendition of Adobe RGB (for commercial printing).
Exposure Compensation: Using the dedicated Exposure Compensation dial on the top of the camera, you can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures 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 some 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 amount.
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 second shot.
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, the older RR-80 Remote Release plugs into the supplied 2.5mm sub-minijack connection, or you can use a standard cable release attached to the threaded receptacle on the shutter release button.
Focus Modes: The camera lets you choose how the camera focuses. Using the rotary control on the front of the camera, you can select Single AF, Continuous AF, or Manual Focus.
Focus Area: The X-T2 lets you select the focus area, and number of focus points available when in manual focus or Single AF. You can choose from 91 points (arranged in a 7 x 13 point grid) or 325 (arranged in a 13 x 25 point grid). You can choose a single focus point using the focus stick on the back panel, moving it in one of 8 directions (up/down, left/right, and diagonally).
Face Detection/Eye Detection: The camera lets you choose face detection to automatically detect human faces, or eye detection to automatically detect and accurately focus on human eyes for successful portraits with a shallow depth of field. You can even define the area of priority focus, including right or left eye, or the eye closer to the camera.
Flash Modes: The X-T2 does not have a built-in flash, but comes with the EF-X8 Shoe Mount Flash. Optional external flash units (EF-20, EF-42, EF-X20) can be used for additional lighting at night or indoors under low light. The camera has a sync terminal for connecting flash units that require a sync cable. Red-eye removal minimizes the "red-eye" effect, and is available for each flash mode. You can choose a flash mode for P, S, A, and M shooting modes: Flash Auto, TTL Flash Standard, Slow Sync (1st or 2nd Curtain), Manual Flash, Commander, and Off.
Light Metering: The X-T2 uses 256-segment, TTL (through-the-lens) metering, where the camera automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimum exposure. Using the ring surrounding the shutter speed dial, you can select from three metering options: Multi, Spot, Center-Weighted, or Average.
Viewing Images: Images can be played back one-at-a-time or in two multi-frame views of a 9-image grid (3 x 3) and a 100-image grid (10 x 10) of micro-thumbnails.
Playback Zoom/Cropping: You can enlarge a still image in the monitor according to the image quality (size). After you have zoomed in and scrolled the picture to the desired composition, you can create a cropped image of a picture. Copies will have an aspect ratio of 3:2, and will be saved as a separate file.
Resize: To create a small copy of a picture, you can select "Resize" from the menu. The new images vary in size with the original image.
Voice Memo: You can add a voice memo to a recorded photograph using the built-in microphone. The memo can be up to 30 seconds.
Power Requirements: The X-T2 is powered by the supplied NP-W126S Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (7.2V, 1260mAh). A fully-charged NP-W126S is good for approximately 340 shots. The supplied BC-W126 battery charger will charge an NP-W126 battery in about 150 minutes.
USB: The X-T2 features a Micro-B 3.0 USB port, which is compatible with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 or High Speed USB 2.0 Micro-B cables. Using a USB 3.0 cable with a computer that supports USB 3.0 will give you higher download speeds. With an optional Micro USB cable, you can download your photos to your computer. The Micro-B port can also be used to connect the optional RR-90 Remote Release.
HDMI: The camera has a Micro-HDMI (Type D) output for connecting the camera to your HDTV. An optional Micro-HDMI to HDMI cable is required. The Micro-HDMI output also allows you to connect a separate monitor for simultaneous viewing with the camera's LCD monitor.

Remote Release: A 2.5mm sub-mini jack is provided for connecting the RR-80 Remote Release, or other 3rd party electronic releases.
MyFinePix Studio: The X-T2 does not include camera software in the box. Software for the camera can be downloaded from the Fujifilm website for copying photos and movies to your your computer. MyFinePix Studio software is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7 (SP1), Windows Vista (SP2), and Windows XP (SP3). For Mac users, pictures can be copied to your computer using Image Capture, which is supplied with your computer.
RAW File Converter: RAW File Converter EX 2.0 is used to view RAW images on your computer. Versions for Windows (10, 8/8.1, 7 (SP1), Vista (SP2)) and Macintosh (OS X 10.6.8-10.11/ macOS Sierra) are provided.
Overview: The Fujifilm VPB-XT2 is a Vertical Power Booster Grip that serves a dual purpose. The grip provides a shutter release button and many other controls to greatly improve functionality when shooting in the portrait (vertical) orientation. It also has a battery tray that holds two rechargeable batteries (in addition to the one in the camera), effectively tripling the battery life between charges. The VPB-XT2 includes a 9-volt AC power adapter for charging the batteries.
Battery Tray: The VPB-XT2 holds two NP-W126S batteries, increasing the number of photos you can take, and the number and length of movies you can record with the X-T2. With three batteries in the camera, the camera will display the level of each battery individually. The camera will use the left battery in the VPT-XT2 until no charge remains, followed by the right battery, and finally by the battery in the camera.
Enhanced Performance: When fully-charged batteries are inserted in both the X-T2 camera and the VPB-XT2, you can enjoy a faster maximum frame rate and decreased shutter release lag. In Burst mode, the maximum frame rate (with mechanical shutter) is increased to 11 fps, compared to 8 fps maximum normally. (Regardless of the performance mode selected, the maximum frame rate with the electronic shutter is still 14 fps.) In addition, the shutter release lag is 45 ms, compared to 50 ms in normal mode.
AC Power Adapter: Included with the VPB-XT2 is the AC-9VS AC power adapter, with a DC output of 9V / 2A. The AC-9VS plugs into the side of the grip for charging the batteries, or for supplying power to the camera. The batteries charge simultaneously in about two hours, but will not charge while the camera is turned on. Two small LEDs on the grip indicate the status on each of the batteries (On: charging; Off: charging complete; Flashing: charging fault).
Vertical Shooting: The VPB-XT2 attaches to the bottom of the X-T2 camera, with a locking screw that fits into the camera's 1/4" tripod socket. The grip's multi-pin camera connector plugs directly into the camera. When you rotate the camera from the landscape (horizontal) to the portrait (vertical) shooting orientation, the VPB-XT2 provides an ergonomic and comfortable grip for taking pictures. The grip gives you easy access to the following controls: Shutter release button, Q (quick menu) button, Fn (function 1) button, Control lock, Front Command Dial, Rear Command Dial, AE-L (auto exposure lock) button, AF-L (auto focus lock) button, Focus stick, Performance selector, and Indicator lamps. All of the controls perform the same function as the matching controls on the camera.
Headphone Jack: The Vertical Power Booster Grip provides a 3.5mm headphone jack for monitoring the audio during video recording. The X-T2 camera does not have a headphone jack. A short headphone extension cable is provided in case the plug on your headphones is too large for the narrow opening on the grip.
