Six Years of the Fujifilm X-T2

This post is dedicated to the last six years of using the Fujifilm X-T2 to document my life.

The time has finally come to retire the Fujifilm X-T2 as my main camera now that the younger, faster and cooler X-T5 has been delivered. It wouldn’t have been right for me to just move on immediately and start creating a whole new era of blog posts without at least acknowledging the last six years of the Fujifilm X-T2. That camera has seen a lot. It’s been by my side on an almost daily basis; from my first attempt at a 365 day challenge to travelling Australia and South East Asia, from shooting my first ten weddings to capturing the first nine months of my daughter’s life.

The honest truth though is a little bit kinder to the X-T2. I do actually have two copies and only one will be sold meaning that the original copy, brought brand new in 2016, will always be mine. It’s a bit battered and bruised, probably worn out (a lot like me), but I will always love that camera. The one I’m selling is a second copy I bought used off MPB so I haven’t really lost out with selling that back in as good a condition as it came in.

This post is therefore dedicated to the last six years and the photos that the camera has helped me capture. I’ll share a fair amount of photos below all of which I would say are some of my favourites ever taken.


Wow that feels good to share and hopefully you’ve enjoyed looking through as much as I’ve enjoyed pulling this together. Some aren’t technically the best nor have I wanted to share many more of my personal moments but this collection definitely makes me happy when looking at the last six years.

This therefore marks a new chapter in my photography journey with the Fujifilm X-T5 which is due to be delivered any day now (it may well actually be here by the time this post goes live). I cannot wait to see what I can create over the next six years or longer!

  1. Found your website when searching reviews. Enjoy your experiences with your gear, without boring technical data. I am the one, who is seeking for best kit with limited budget. Probably i will sell my 50f2 and will be left with 18f2, 35f1.4 and 85f1.8. I can go two direction with money i will get: upgrade body, or another lens. I can sell viltrox also and be able to get secondhand 56f1.2. But i always wanted x-e3 compact body (now i use x-t10 with broken button). But black and sturdy x-t2 looks so delicious (especially for 400€ used). Especially after reading your blog 🙂

    1. Thank you Vainius for taking the time to comment and I’m so glad that you like what you’ve seen! The X-T2 at the used price is such a good camera and I would highly recommend going for that. The 56mm f/1.2 is a beautiful lens and I’m so pleased to say that the autofocus is much improved on the newer cameras.

      Thanks again


  2. I have owned the xt2 since it was introduced, and love the he camera. It has never let me down will be taking it to Scotland in march. I know Fuji has come out with several models and have thought briefly about moving up but like my xt2 too much to give it up.

    1. Thank you Dennis, sorry it has taken me so long to reply!
      The X-T2 is great there’s no doubt about that – I tried to use it alongside my X-T5 recently but it feels completely different and strange as though I’ve become accustomed to the X-T5 so quickly!
      Hope you enjoy your trip to Scotland



  3. I’ve followed some of your work for a while and it’s fantastic, out of any/all recipes you’ve used with the xt-2, which is your favourite? And a small cheeky one, have you got a recommendation for a moody desaturated film recipe?
    Keep up the good work and have fun with the xt-5 😌

    1. Thank you Karl – it’s great to hear from someone who has regularly followed along! For the X-T2, it has to be my Chrome Urban one I love it though can’t help but feel it doesn’t have the same impact on the X-T5! It definitely has a desaturated feel but I’m not sure of one that would have that moody feel too (if my thought on what you are after is the same as yours)

      Thanks again
