X-T2?


altero

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am considering buying a X-T1. Actually, I am convinced about its capabilities and I am already in love with its "look and feel" (I handled it in a store nearby), I only need the stars to be aligned and money to come in my account.

 

I want to ask you a (probably) stupid question: are there any rumours / signs about a new generation of high-end camera from Fujifilm? X-T10 is nice, but a deal braker for me is the lack of mettering dial. Is X-T2 somewhere on the horizont?

 

Thanks!

No, nothing in sight for the moment. I think that until the X-PRO2 will come out in late 2015 we won't heard any

rumors on a successor of the X-T1. The X-T2 in 2016? Maybe, maybe not. I don't think we will see an X-T2 anytime soon.

January will be exactly 2 years after the first releas of the T... but it would stil be 8 month from now, if you think you can wait until that

date, go for it. The problem with electronics is that there is always something better coming shortly after :rolleyes:

 

But as you said 2016 isn't so close

I still have Canon 5D Mark III's and a ton of glass with no intention of getting rid of it, but I purchased an X-T1 and now, several lenses.  The lenses are ultimately the reason you invest in the system.  The bodies will keep coming if the lenses are worth a darn.  I think they are.  I enjoy shooting my X-T1 and X100T, but I still have a Fujifilm wish list that includes a flash system, better AF and tracking, even better EVF to name a few.  The pros of the system are the size and weight, image quality (sensor & lenses), and it is simply fun to use.  I enjoy photography; for me, not for anyone else.  It really does not matter what "brand" I use if I like the results I get.

    • I'm four months in and love my X-T5, no problems at all.  For me it came down to format choice, APSC.  The brand choice became Sony or Fuji as Canon lens selection seems lacking.  Then read up strengths and weaknesses of the two.  But physically looking at the camera made the difference.  I have XL hands and the Sony actually felt too small to hold.  I preferred Fuji handling but the big difference was the dials.  I could see how to adjust ISO, aperture, and shutter speed without instruction.  Took me back to days of shooting film.  I just wanted to use it.  I don't like wading through menus and I don't have to with this camera.  It has a ton of features I haven't used but I appreciate that I can go out and have fun, taking great stills, and learning the advanced stuff at a very slow pace.  I've only shot a couple videos and have no idea what to do with the histogram.  I'm not sure I care, love the camera.  As for 4 vs. 5, that's hard to say.  I don't want to video of myself so I prefer the tilt screen on the 5.  The resolution increase isn't a bad thing, I trim my shots quite of bit and more res helps with that.  I kinda wanted the latest and hopefully greatest.  But if the dollar savings is enough to help out your lens budget then go for it.
    • Sorry dumb question, I have it sorted
    • Here is a short segment explaining some good and bad things about each of the shutter types Fujifilm uses. https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/exposure-center/types-of-shutters/ Your X-T10 does not have all of the different types, but give each of those it does have a try and see if you like them. Enjoy your new camera!
    • Why is the Monochromatic color item not available in the Image Quality menu on my X-T30II? Thanks
    • Like others have stated, it happens and can happen to any brand make or model. All industries are subject. I have had my X-T5 for 2 months and it is perfect. I come from Canon FF both EF and RF and Nikon for analog, all companies and segments with incredibly high QC rates. This Fuji is the same, from mechanical to software, top marks.  If you look for negative reviews, you will find them. Complainers are 10x more likely to voice an opinion than those satisfied.
