DSLR cameras are still around though not as plenty like before. A reason for that is that the fad may have just died down thanks to the advanced cameras that mobile phones have been coming out with.

With that said, DSLR cameras have now been limited to the photography nuts though the FujiFilm X-T2 may just spur up some new interest before the year comes to a close. From the review unit that landed in the Manila Bulletin Tech Lab, this camera is certainly something to long for.

Dial and rotating settings

For the ones familiar with DSLR, the right setting will need a lot of tweaking. Some cameras normally have that when through the various menu settings, something that may require good memory retention at times.

With the FujiFilm X-T2, you simply have to rotate to your preferred setting and lock it with a simple push. Hence, users who prefer to keep settings no longer have to worry about accidental changes as they only have to power it on and snap away.

Better Photos and Videos

Thanks to an improved AF (autofocus) and EVF (electronic viewfinder), taking pictures or videos just became better. As far as image capturing is concerned, one dreaded instance is for photographers who look for the perfect action shot.

Thanks to an improved AF-C (continuous) setting, snapping photos just got easier and smarter to get the right shot.

For videos, the FujiFilm X-T2 can capture 4K videos using the camera’s Simulation modes. It can capture up to 100 Mbps and comes with additional output support for HDMI and various audio controls to compliment that high-resolution video.

A DSLR Made for Pros and Casuals

Overall, the FujiFilm X-T2 seems nothing out of the ordinary with a familiar body that DSLRs carry. The secret is from within plus improvements that users will only get to appreciate up and close.

The beauty behind the FujiFilm X-T2 is that it was made to satisfy both neophytes and the professionals for their snapping pleasures.

It may look retro and basic at first but all that changes once you start capturing photos and images, most of which are utterly impressive thanks to the 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor with no low-pass filter.

Among other notable features for the FujiFilm X-T2 include a new battery grip which can hold two extra batteries and two dual SD card slots. Touted as one of the best cameras to get this 2016, it could be a worthy camera to get before the year comes to a close.
