Fujifilm might release two versions of the X-Pro2 flagship X-mount mirrorless camera, one of them featuring a larger image sensor with more megapixels than the conventional APS-C model.
The rumors about the Fujifilm X-Pro1 successor have intensified in recent times and a new one has just showed on the web. According to a source who has provided interesting gossips in the past, the Japan-based company will release two models of the X-Pro2, including a version with a larger sensor that will be compatible with current X-mount lenses.
The second version is the already-rumored one and it employs a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, which has been discussed in the past. As the official announcement is still a few months away, there is a strong chance that Fuji is testing more versions of the camera, so only one of them may find its way onto the market.
One Fujifilm X-Pro1 successor might feature a larger 27-megapixel APS-X sensor
As we get closer to September 2015, the purported announcement date of the Fujifilm X-Pro1 replacement, the rumor mill is leaking more and more details about the camera. We may have to be forced to speak in plural soon as a source says that there are two versions of the X-Pro2.
It is rumored that the second version employs an APS-X image sensor sized at 25.6 x 17.3mm, which is slightly bigger than conventional 23.6 x 15.6mm APS-C sensors.
Not only is the sensor bigger, but it offers more megapixels as well. The insider says that it will have between 25 and 27 megapixels.
Another interesting fact is that old lenses will work with this version of the X-Pro2 in crop mode. In the past, we have heard that Fuji may launch a full frame mirrorless camera and that some X-mount lenses can already cover such 35mm sensors, which means that this rumor may not be too far fetched from the reality.
As for the viewfinder, it will be a hybrid model containing both optical and electronic parts.
Second version of the Fuji X-Pro2 to be powered by a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor
The specifications of the second version of the Fujifilm X-Pro1 successor are pretty much in line with what we have heard in the past. The X-mount mirrorless camera is said to employ a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and dual SD card slots.
Both of these details have been mentioned in the past, so they are the most likely to be true. It is worth noting that the company could be testing more models before deciding which one is best for X-mount photographers.
