The FUJIFILM X-T2's body is made of magnesium alloy. Despite being compact and lightweight, it is both solid and highly durable. The body is also weather-sealed in 63 points to achieve a high level of resistance to dust and moisture. Couple this with its ability to work in temperatures down to -10°C and you'll see the camera is ready for anything. Similar weather-sealing is applied to the dust-resistant and water-resistant lenses and the Power Booster Grip to provide weather resistance across the entire system.
The body features dual slots to accommodate two SD cards for highly reliable data storage. Both Slot 1 and Slot 2 are compatible with UHS-II standards for excellent write speeds. You can use the slots for sequential recording, backup, sorting to record RAW files in Slot 1 and JPEG files in Slot 2, or assign one of the slots for video storage.
The FUJIFILM X-T1's grip has been further developed and now offers even greater comfort on the FUJIFILM X-T2 thanks to a larger area set aside as a thumb rest. Locking mechanisms have also been introduced for the SD Card Cover and Battery Cover.
The FUJIFILM X-T2 features a premium LCD screen that can tilt in three directions. Tilt it up and down when shooting in landscape, and upward when shooting in portrait. The screen remains positioned on the optical axis of the lens for easier high-angle and low-angle shooting. The 3-inch LCD has 1.04 million dots and uses toughened glass. When not tilted, it fits flush to the body.
Key exposure controls are dial-based, such as setting the shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, Drive Mode and Metering Mode. This means settings can easily be changed, even when the camera is turned off. Selected controls also feature lock and release buttons to enhance overall operation.
The frequently-used exposure compensation function can be operated using the top-plate dial for adjustments in 1/3 increments up to ±3EV. Select the C position for exposure compensation of up to ±5EV using the camera's Command Dial. When using the Power Booster Grip featuring the Command Dial, select the C position to access exposure compensation with the camera held in the portrait orientation.
The FUJIFILM X-T2 features a focal plane shutter with a maximum speed of 1/8000 sec, flash sync speed of 1/250 sec and durability of 150,000 shots. It also supports an ultra-fast, silent-operating electronic shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32,000 sec that allows you to shoot at wide apertures, even in bright sunlight.
