Here are the top five questions I’ve had since I put my initial Fuji X-Pro2 Review live back in January:

  1. How do I become an X-Photographer and get free stuff?
  2. What is the dynamic range like? (I’ve answered that to a certain extent with my recent webcast about the X-Pro2 and Lightroom)
  3. Is the camera water proof?
  4. Is the Auto Focus better than an X-T1?
  5. What does the electronic shutter sound like?

Fuji X-Pro2 Shutter Sound

I thought #5 was an interesting question.  Its cropped up time and time again.

Jonas Rask described the sound (in his epic X-Pro2 Review) as:

The best way for me to describe the sound is if you imagine a Ninja sword slicing through a ripe watermelon! It’s truly an addictive sound. Plus it’s very muted. It’s very very silent. ~ Jonas Rask

And that is pretty much what it does sound like.

I thought I’d make a little sound clip for you though.  If you haven’t got the X-Pro2 yet, and are intrigued by the mechanical shutter sound, well, here you go……

Fuji X-Pro2 Weather Sealing

I feel very confidently placed to make commentary on this.

Yes.  Yes and Yes.  The X-Pro2 performs admirably in torrential rain.  Consistently.

How do I know this?  Because its been like that here in the UK since October 🙂
