1. EUROPEAN PROFESSIONAL COMPACT SYSTEM CAMERA 2016-2017 – The “FUJIFILM X-Pro2” Mirrorless Digital camera
The FUJIFILM X-Pro2 is a professional documentary and street photographer’s dream. With the new 24.3-million-pixel X-Trans™ CMOS III sensor the X-Pro2 delivers incredibly detailed pictures that can be further enhanced with Fujifilm’s realistic film simulations. The unique hybrid multi viewfinder combines an electronic viewfinder with an optical viewfinder that includes an electronic rangefinder, while the well-built weather sealed body promises reliable shooting under all conditions. Last, but not least, the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 is a speed demon with up to 8fps continuous shooting and electronic shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 of a second.
2. EUROPEAN COMPACT SYSTEM ZOOM LENS 2016-2017 – The “FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR” X Mount Interchangeable Lens
The FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a super telephoto zoom that gives a 150-600mm equivalent range when used on Fujifilm APS-C sensor cameras. It’s a very good complement to the new X-T2 camera, giving X system users access to sport and wildlife photography. High-end technologies including ED glass deliver excellent image quality, even when the lens is used wide open, and autofocus is silent and very fast. The lens is very light for its range, yet the quality of construction is very high and the lens is weather sealed. With effective optical stabilisation, it’s easy to use without a tripod.
Fujifilm will continue to work on the development of excellent products and services that address user needs, thereby contributing to the further development of photographic culture.
