The FujiFilm X-T2 measures 15x9.5x12.5cm with the supplied 18>55mm lens fitted fully retracted, it weights 861grams.
Like the previous offering it is powerful and really a small professional camera. A thorough read of the manual is a must to do more than use it in Auto mode as anyone who knows a little about cameras will realise that this is something that requires - no demands - respect.
It is a 24MP offering also capable of 4K video capture.
There are three dials on top of the camera and two of the three are doubles. First the Sensitivity Dial that has the Drive Dial at its base, second the Shutter Speed Dial with the Metering Dial at its base and the third dial is the Exposure Compensation dial. Between the last two dials is the on/off button and shutter release button, between the first two dials is the viewfinder with the external flash shoe on top.
The front where whatever lens you use attaches also has the three position Focus Mode Selector FN-2 button and Metering Dial.
Turning the camera round to display the back has neck strap anchor point on the left with a flip open door that conceals four connections for Microphone, Micro USB, Micro HDMI and Remote release connection.
On the right is the neck strap pair and flip open door with safety catch where you can insert either one or two SD cards.
The base has a door behind which you insert the cameras solid battery and just left of centre directly under the lens is the tripod screw.
This leaves the back dominated by the 6.4x4.2cm TFT display that can be opened to display at different angles as well as flat to the back. Along the top edge are Delete, Playback, Exposure Lock and Focus Lock buttons the last two are split by the Rear Command Dial. To the right of the TFT and to the left of the thumb anchor point are Quick Menu and Focus Stick buttons. Finally the five position Joystick control and the Display/Back button.
So you have the choice of using the viewfinder or TFT to capture images as your eye moves towards the viewfinder the TFT is automatically cut out. There is no built in flash but as this is at the least a semi-professional camera you will have flash units of your own and I also took plenty of images in low light without problem both in Auto mode and my fumbling attempts to persuade the unit that I knew enough to make the choices myself.
This is a quality camera that deserves to have recognition but I again stress that there is no short cut to getting results you need time to get to know it and only then can you appreciate exactly what it has to offer.
