Fuji X Pro 2 test shots

March 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

WOW! The new Fuji X Pro 2 is incredible! To tell you the truth, I didn't want to like this camera. I am very happy with my X-E2 and X-T1...that is until I gave this a short test drive at 12,800 ISO. This is unbelievable and if I hadn't shot it myself, I would be skeptical. This is the file as it came out of the camera with no post processing at all! I'm a believer and I will own this body as quickly as I can get my hands on one.

This is my very close friend Bill Fortney speaking at this years. PhotoProExpo in Kentucky. I was able to borrow the camera and 100-400 lens from my friend Jackie the Fuji Tech Rep. (she was also my former boss at Buckeye Color Lab in Ohio) This was an incredible test, but my day to day work is portraiture. So the next time Jackie and Cy were in the store, I asked a friend, Brittany Smith  to stop by so I could try a quick portrait with it. Again, WOW! 

This is only 200 ISO with very controlled Elinchrom lights and modifiers. I can't believe the sharpness in this larger sensor. I haven't missed my "full frame sensor" cameras in the past 3 years, I sure don't miss them now! There is just so much rich, beautiful information in these files.

I just have to get one of these for my own soon! I have another awesome commercial shoot coming up in a few weeks and I would love to have this to shoot with. If anyone from Fuji is listening....PLEASE!
