A few months ago I met Tomasz Lazar at the Miami Street Photography Festival and he was working on some interesting projects at that time. He’s a very talented photographers and I have followed him since, but his latest project was published in “An Ethereal Forest Where Japanese Commit Suicide” for national geographic.
I recalled his use of the Fujifilm X-T1 IR for this project and wanted to verify some information before sharing the article, but when I did he brought up an additional detail, Fujifilm prepared a Fujifilm X-T2 IR for him. I asked him if I could share the details and will alter my post if anything changes, but he described the setup as “Fujifilm Japan prepared for me camera with special sensor. The same was with the XT1 IR. Probably it will be possible to buy soon. I was using both cameras with IR filters also on them.”
This is great news for IR Photography fans. I was really interested in picking up a Fujifilm X-T1 IR for personal use, but was waiting for a price drop or an X-T2 IR. Lets hope that Fujifilm decided to sell these cameras to the public a little bit quicker than they did the original Fujifilm X-T1 IR. Anyway make sure to check out “An Ethereal Forest Where Japanese Commit Suicide” and follow Tomasz Lazar.
