Fuji X Pro 2 video quality a huge step up – hands on with the final hardware, pre-production firmware

Download original files here (note: pre-production firmware).

Not cool. I would hate for all your hard work and “original” content to be ruined by the kids at *******.

I work for Reprise Records and we are contacting them now about the theft of his music. Please remove that section of your video or contact us at our media relations department at 818-840-2405.
