Photos Taken with a FujiFilm X-T2

Here's a collection of travel-type photos I've taken with a FujiFilm X-T2 mirrorless camera.

I took these photos with the X-T2 a while ago but hadn’t gotten around to posting them. I’ve since been shooting with the X-T3, and it naturally got me thinking to how the X-T3 compares with the X-T2. I’d previously posted some high-ISO examples taken with the X-T2, but I thought it was about time to finally post a more general collection.

I’ve tried to include a range of exposure settings, including ISOs, apertures, and shutter speeds. I’ve also tried to include different kinds of shots in terms of color and detail, all the kind of thing one might take with travel photography.

The X-T2 has a 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS cropped sensor that outputs images at 6000 by 4000 pixels. It has a maximum ISO of 51200, although that’s into the artificially boosted extended ISO range; the native ISO range is from 200 up through 12800.

These were all shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom. By default, Lightroom assigns their own Adobe Color profile, but for all of these I’ve overridden it with the FujiFilm-supplied film emulation profiles of either Velvia/Vivid or Provia/Standard. These film emulation profile are one of the distinctive selling points of FujiFilm cameras, and when you apply them using the camera’s settings, they apply only to JPGs but to RAW files (although it can look as though they do affect the RAW files because the profiles are applied in rending the JPG preview thumbnails embedded into the RAW files). But FujiFilm provided Adobe with some of their film emulation profiles to include in Lightroom so that they can be incorporated into a RAW workflow. The difference from the generic default is often quite pronounced, as you’d be familiar with if you’ve ever shot with Velvia or Provia film. One thing I’ve particularly liked is being able to use the richly saturated Velvia at high ISOs rather than being limited to around ISO 50 or ISO 100, as the real films are.

  • Great article and i enjoyed your photos. I'm windering why you opted to emulate the various filters in lightroom rather than to shoot jpegs and to use the in camera filters?

    • These aren't normal processing filters--they're camera profiles supplied by the manufacturers. So it's not hit and miss like trying to copy a filter would be.
