Xpro2 father of the bride

Fuji Xpro2 Wedding shoot

There are some fabulous reviews about the Fuji Xpro2, one of my favourite article writers is Thomas Menk his skill at writing very technical but easy reading blogs, in my opinion are superb, another great writer is hpc, well worth looking up. I have written a couple of blogs with regards to this camera but I tend to judge my camera equipment on results, I love to read the technical stuff but for me it's all about the feel and finished product.

With this blog, I'm going to let the images tell the story, what I have tried to do is add images from different time points throughout the wedding, these will be from the Bridal preparations through to the first dance.

Im very much a manual mode photographer, for me and my style of photography, the Fuji Xpro2 is perfect, I love the retro look and it's a full hands on camera, I like to be completely in charge, I set the. ISO, shutter and of course f- stop for each situation I meet during a wedding and this camera allows me to switch quickly and be ready for the next shot.

The negatives: well if I do find myself using Aperture Prior mode, I like to set spot metering and for me, the Xpro2 spot metering just hasn't got it, also another slightly annoying point is the ISO dial, I have found that it hasn't quite locked into place and a few times whilst setting the shutter speed I've found the ISO has also changed!

I have tried the uncompressed RAW and the compressed format and to be honest I can't see any difference however I'm not a pixel peeper.

It's fast and very sharp and my hit rate has definitely improved, the focus is definitely league's ahead of the XT1 and this camera is now my main camera for Wedding's, using my favorite Fuji 56 mm lens, so please browse through the image's and see what this camera can produce.

At this particular I took approximately 900 individual images and can honestly say 98% of the photos were exposed great, the camera is on my opinion a fantastic piece of kit for wedding photo journalism.
