Fujifilm Corporation announces the release of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 premium mirrorless camera. The new model boasts a Hybrid Viewfinder capable of instantly switching between optical and electronic finders, plus an updated image sensor and processor, which dramatically improve image quality.
By combining these features with the ultra-high image quality of Fujinon X-Mount lenses and the color reproduction technology accumulated through more than 80 years as a photographic film manufacturer, the X-Pro2 delivers the best ever results from an X-series camera.
Electronic viewfinders (EVF) used by mirrorless cameras are said to be superior to optical viewfinders because settings including white balance and exposure can be checked instantly, and the displayed image can be enlarged to check focusing accuracy. In some cases, however, photographers prefer a more natural view.
In particular, the optical rangefinder, which allows the user to view the subject in almost the same way as the naked eye, is extremely effective and often preferred by documentary, reportage and street photographers. The X-Pro2 is the only mirrorless camera in the world featuring a Hybrid Viewfinder system that incorporates both types of viewfinder.
