an excellent review, beautifully made. makes me love my xt2 even more.
what type of lens are you using in the video? i know you said something about not being able to Nikon or Sigma.
A great video, brother !!! I like your presentation, lucid speech which is easy to understand and the clippings are simply superb. Planning to get an used XT2 soon
and thanks for the crisp and informative review about the camera.👍👍👍
Amazing quality of youtube video...beautiful, a reference, subscribed just due to that. thx.
Seems so long ago now that all sorts of adaptors & accessories are available. Still a great cam.
X-T3 w h e n
Great review on one of my favorite cameras. Thanks!
It's a dinosaur get the X3 and put this in the museum
Excellent, really excellent piece. Beautifully shot, edited, written, etc. I’m a Fuji X-E1 user (3 bodies) and looking to upgrade to a better body for at least 1, plus am doing a lot of video, so the XT-2 looks like it will fit bill. Your review was really helpful, thanks.

Hello! I bought the body of the X-T2, I would like to know which lens you recommend me to buy. It is for portrait and passages. Travel in general. Thank you very much!
So shall I switch from my canon 5D Mark3 to fujifilm XT2? Because I am not satisfied with canon, mainly in it's bloody focus system. I really need a mirror less camera with fast and accurate focusing system with the same speed and accuracy of Nikon D500 or D5. Is XT2 having such a speedy focusing mechanism? Please give a reply on my doubt.
do you think there will soon be a successor to the xt2 ?
How is the XPro2 it’s bigger brother?
Make a tutorial about color grading. The intro looks amazing!
I like the still photography features (I have no interest in video)
Sweet, time to buy
Super nice video! I was impressed of the picture quality at the end of the video. What camera have you used for that?
I am looking to defect from Canon and I like what Fujifilm is doing in the mirrorless world but there's a few things stopping me. I really like the dials on top that are much quicker to use than scrolling through menus. It reminds me of using my film cameras, which I still use. I like the absence of the AA filter over the sensor for sharper images and the ruggedness of the body but without a canon lens adapter, it's a deal breaker. I have a ton of Canon EF and FD lenses that I'd love to be able to use so I don't have to start completely from scratch. It's also a safety net in case I find that I'm really don't like mirrorless. I can always just start using my DSLR again and sell the mirrorless. I'd also love for Fujifilm to come out with a full frame so that when an adapter is made, I can shoot at the true focal length of my lenses and forget about crop factors. If they make a full frame and an adapter comes out, Fujifilm will have my business
F-log to sd card and 120fps coming in next few weeks via update so that eliminates many of your negatives about the camera. If only the brand I'm invested in done that... come on canon
Your shots look really good, and not just because of the "Fuji colors." The X-T2 can be had on eBay for around $500; demand for it seems to drive used prices on camera-dealer sites to well above $600. I have an X-T4, but am wishing that I had an X-T2 as an auxiliary body. The Acros B&W simulation is great. The "key features" you say are lacking won't be missed by most people. Great camera.
Thank you so helpful !
man! Your voice is so relaxing! Nice review btw :-)
"The firmware development was halted more than 2 years ago, so don't expect to see any new software or critical patches"... I hate to correct you mate, but since this major 2018 upgrade there were 4 smaller updates and patches including the last one in September 2020. But you're right in a way - even though Fujifilm prides themselves on not abandoning their gear (like practically all other manufacturers), there is probably an upper limit to what can be done to a body from 2016.
Apart from that it's a great video ;)
For 1000 euros new with the 18-55 is a good buy?
If anyone can find where to buy one today with a lens please send that link my way
Damn, my hometown toronto looking beautiful as always :)
This camera is highly recommended for product photography.
Came for your perspective, stayed for the jazz. Cheers. ~s.
I love my X-t3 for video and portraits but I'm not gonna lie I do miss the X-T2. That was my first camera I learned to shoot full manual on. I regret getting rid of it. I might have to pick up one again soon and use it as my everyday camera
"outdated?" rolling my eyes rn. Literally i have the xt3, had xt2 & xt1. You realize how much they they updated this camera?
hey man cool review but Can I record video through viewfinder
Nikon z50 or fuji xt2 for photography?
Just to say there is a new firmware update released 09.17.2020 so you might want to put a note on your video.
First time fuji owner here. What they say about the jpegs is true, they’re amazing. It feels weird not editing much but I love how they come out. What lenses do you usually use? I bought a cheap 50mm from a third party and i’m also using my 35mm nikon lens with an adaptor for now.
Very usefull and well done!
I love my XT2. By the way, I like that strap. can you share make & model please???
I am a Nikon shooter but bought the XT-2 a few years to dip a toe in the mirrorless game. It was a reasonable price and seemed to get solid reviews. Generally, I really like this camera. I like it so much that I even thought about jumping to the Fuji GFX for my main camera. However, this camera is not a substitutable camera for a full frame pro-style camera. The low native ISO is 200 and the dynamic range just isn't comparable to my Nikon or other pro-level DSLRs. Like this gentleman's review says, this is a great camera for people on a budget who are looking to get out of point and shoot mode. Or it's a camera for people like me who are already in the full frame game and wanted a nice compact camera for bopping around town.
Great vid, thumbs up from ukrainian fujifanboy:) Really love those music vibes, bunch of examples and voiceover) )

I had an XT-3 and downgraded to an XT-2 honestly i think the images from the XT-2 look better they look slightly less polished and i prefer the look even though its only very slight.
Hey man fantastic review good work you got yourself a new subscriber (i know nothing about photography and I’m buying an xt2 soon ) can i ask you tho which is better the xt2 or the panasonic gh4? Thank you for the reply rly appreciated keep up the good work good luck
What sort of computer does someone need to handle 61.0MP files with decent ease...?
Hi, fuji xt2 or nikon z50 for photography, i shoot only jpeg, mostly stills, portrait, wildlife, travel.
And which has better image quality?
No video uses.
Good camera in 2020/2050...
I have just bought a second x-t2 + vg + batteries at a very good price. I dont make videos and I prefer the 24Mpx sensor, so the x-t2 is the best fuji-x camera for me.
By the way, thanks a lot for your amazing videos Ian !
Can I ask if you know where I can find the tiny screws at the base of the camera near the 1/4 20 screw ???
Just picked one up for CAD$1400 used with 18-55 and 35mm f2. Coming from Sony a7rii, this is definitely a great camera and I am amazed by the colours
Hell yeah! Still one of the best cameras out there!
I want to buy a camera, but not sure which one to buy. Some say Fujifilm xt2 and others say canon m50. What do you recommend?
Absolutely fantastic video. I don't own an X-T2 personally, but I know a few who do. All are very vocal about how good it is.
Regarding the megapixel debate; I couldn't agree more. I shoot the natural world and global culture, for my blog and various publications. Guess what I use? A pair of Nikon D300 bodies and good glass. I had a D3S (itself an old camera) but, alas, she finally gave up on me in 2016, so I switched mid-assignment to my D300 backup and remembered just how capable and bulletproof it still is. So good in fact, that I purchased another to accompany it.
12MP is plenty enough and I've yet to have a client tell me otherwise. They never ask what I shoot on either.
Again, fantastic video, and I'm going to check to the X-T2 out. Looks extremely light and mobile, both big attractions in my line of work.
Edit: How rugged does the X-T2 feel in hand? I only ask as this is another requirement in my working cameras.
Thx for the help.. moving from canon to Fujifilm. (40 yr canon user)

A higher number of megapixels doesn't always mean it's better. When the resolution of APS-C sensors becomes larger and larger, the size of the pixels themselves will shrink and this is not always desirable. You get the 'grainy' effect you have on smartphone and it's less suitable for certain types of photography such as action and wildlife.
Valuable insight. My first proper camera could be a xt 2.
I picked up a new (old stock) X-T2 with the 18-55 mm f/2.8 kit lens after watching your video. The X-T3 and 4 were just not within my budget at the moment. I really hope I won't regret buying an old model. But I thought it would be a good opportunity to get into the Fuji system and see if I like it. Will take delivery tomorrow. In any case, I really enjoy your videos. Subscribed.
'bout ye from Northern Ireland! Just wanted to say, your videos have been a BIG help to me. I just recently moved to Fuji XT2 from a Sony system, and it has been a great switch. However, I am still having teething problems with some things, new system I suppose! But your video tutorial have been a massive help, so thank you sir! Hope you come over here soon.
just bought a mint xt2 in japan for $400. i know zero about photography! he's right about the inspiration factor. I am currently trying to watch as many photography tutorials as i can before i go out tomorrow and start shooting, fiddling with all the knobs and turny things. Very exciting! awesome video im hyped!
Great video, my other half is mad you didn’t close the gate behind you though! 😂
