  • Dave Plant says:

    Excellent review! Very thorough and informative. I want one!!

  • Robert Raisler says:

    Dan, thanks a lot. I’ve been reading the flood of reviews released with the XT-2, but yours is the first that was actually useful to me.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Robert, thanks so much for the comment, I’m glad you found my review helpful. I tried to include lots of images and let them do the talking. 🙂 What are you shooting with now?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Dave, I’ll have one next weekend out at the glacier workshop!

  • Hi Dan – it’s been a while since we’ve communicated on the internet… your write up on the X10 got me into Fuji… and that was a great camera that was a great everyday carry as opposed to lugging the Nikon gear around… I have since had an X-Pro1 which I have run in parallel with my Nikon gear for fashion shoots… I didn’t buy into the X-T1 as I had a feeling the X-Pro2 would be around the corner… IF that had a tilt screen it would have been a buy now… the X-T2 when I had a play with it… well it is a game changer for sure… Pre-Order button will be pressed this weekend after reading your very balanced and well written review! Thanks Dan…

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your comment. Great to hear from you again, I’m glad to hear that you’ve been happy with the X Series system so far. I think you’ll be blown away by the X-T2 once you get it in your hands and you have a chance to explore its full capabilities. Won’t be long now, September is right around the corner! -Dan

    With the X-T1 I constantly find myself accidentally changing the Drive Dial, mostly when turning the ISO Dial. Also the flatness of all buttons and the 4-way Selector and Dials is a problem for my [once frozen]fingertips. Have any of these been improved?

  • […] this summer, Fujifilm announced the X-T2. Featuring the new 24MP X-Trans III sensor and a much more powerful image processor, the X-T2 has […]

  • Dan Bailey says:

    The Drive Dial on the X-T2 has been improved somewhat. It’s a more pronounced lever with more solid detents between clicks. I’ve found it to be a little easier to navigate than the Drive Dial on the X-T1. Of course I’ve only used the X-T2 in summer so far, but given the design tweak, I can see it being a little easier to manipulate while wearing gloves.

  • […] instead of talking about how awesome it is under the hood, (you can read that stuff in my full review post) I’d like to highlight another aspect of the X-T2, and all of the X Series cameras. The topic […]

  • […] In fact, the second I got my hands on the X-T2 back in May of this year, I couldn’t wait for cyclocross season. With its new ultra-fast AF system and increased frame rate of up to 11 fps, it’s truly an amazing action camera; by far the best I’ve ever owned.

  • Demos says:

    Great review and thank you!

    Can you let me know what card you used and the write speed of the uhs ii memory card?


  • Dan Bailey says:

    For this test, I used a UHS-II 260MB/s. I also use a Sandisk 95MB/S UHS-I card with good results, but the UHS-II cards give me max performance and higher write speeds for shooting lots of continuous action.

  • […] shot with the new Fujifilm X-T2 during the past few months, (read my full review here) I’ve been extremely impressed with how well it performs at high ISO settings. Given that […]

  • Ángel says:

    Gracias por la descripción y la pasión puesta en describir la X-T2 que, a mí también me parece una cámara excelente. ¿Sabe usted si habrá dentro de poco un libro que trate en detalle las características y diversas funcionalidades de la X-T2? Ya existen libros sobre otras cámaras; como por ejemplo la Sony A7R. Por la espectacular acogida que está teniendo la X-T2 en el mercado, creo que sería el momento de sacar un libro específico de la X-T2. Un saludo

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Hola Angel, Gracias por tu comentario. Tengo una libre Fujifilm consejos y trucos guía aquí, que se aplica a la X-T2.

    También, aquí está otro libro de consejos de Fuji X-T2.

  • Steve says:

    So is your XT-1 now consigned to the back of the cupboard to collect dust?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Steve- I wouldn’t say it’s collecting dust, but it doesn’t get used as often these days. Right now it’s a backup to my X-T2, and I’ll use it as a second body, or loan it out to friends and workshop participants.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
