The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.

The X-Pro2’s sensor has resolution of 24 megapixel.

The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm’s RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The X-Pro2 features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.

Auto Focus Properties

The X-Pro2’s auto focus processor uses 77 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

Flash Specs

The X-Pro2 doesn’t feature a built-in flash. That is not unsusual in this camera category.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Fujifilm’s hotshoe.

Display Specs

The X-Pro2 features a monitor with a diagonal of 76.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.62 megapixel. A resonable value that will make it easy to evaluate images directly in-camera.

Unfortunately, the X-Pro2’s monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.

The X-Pro2 does not feature a touch screen.
