Slow motion footage captured with the Fujifilm X-T2

The Fujifilm X-T2 can record max. 30 frames per second in Ultra HD (3840×2160) and the highest frame rate it can record in Full HD (1920×1080) is 60fps. I went to Frankfurt’s riverside on a cold day in February to capture some slow motion footage. Most of the shots were captured hand-held using the 18-55mm F/2.8-F/4 kit lens with image stabilization on. The lens is a useful all-around lens both for photo and video. The clips were recorded with the PRO Neg. Std. picture profile which is the flatest in-camera picture style. The footage was slightly graded with Lumetri in Premiere Pro CC 2018. You can watch the video below:

Like I mentioned in the video review of the X-T2, the 1080p footage looks fine but unless you really need to shoot in 50p or 60p I recommend rather recording in 4K 25p or 30p because the image just looks much better. If you need to film at higher frame rates than 60p I would recommend to take a look at the new Fujifilm X-H1 which is aimed at filmmakers. The mirrorless camera is also limited to max. 30fps in 4K just like the X-T2 but can shoot 120fps in 1080p.
