Is the Fujifilm X system ready for motorsport?

Recently we were lucky enough to spend some time with four professional motorsport photographers at the 6 Hours of Fuji event at the Fuji Speedway in Japan. All four of these guys have been shooting with Fujifilm X series cameras and lenses as their main systems for a varying number of years so we asked them about their experiences.

If you are thinking about making the switch and are not sure if the system is ready yet, check out these videos below!

  1. Grandtrines – Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

  2. Jacky Cheung – Sydney, Australia – Car enthusiast, jazz lover, hotelier, happy snapper, foodie and a part-time student. This has summed up all about me. A Hong Kong Chinese that grew up in the big smoke of Sydney, Australia.

  4. Felice Monteleone – Fotografo, tecnologico, genitore, e motociclista mancato. Così mi definirei, con questi aggettivi. Amo la fotografia in tutte le sue varianti e sfaccettature; la mia fotografia nasce per strada, tra la gente, nel quotidiano, ma mi piace molto essere un “Fotografo ad alta velocità”. Amo raccontare con le mie immagini ciò che accade in pista e soprattutto ciò che è oltre una gara e che io definisco “vita oltre i cordoli”. Parleremo non solo di fotografia, di pista o di motori, ma cercheremo di capire come realizzare una fotografia che possa essere vincente e soprattutto con un “contenuto vero”.

    Dear Fujifilm, as first thanks for this review.
    My name is Felice and I am a professional MotoGP photographer based in Italy. Well…in the next Italian round at Mugello Circuit I will have the opportunity to test for Fujifilm Italy the brand new X-PRO2 with the 50-140 and the 100-400 plus the 1.4x converter.
    I have read some reviews about the 100-400 but no one have clarified my doubts….
    From your point of view, do the AF performance of the X-PRO2 combined with the XF100-400 lens can be sufficient for the speed of the MotoGP bikes? I’m speaking in terms of capabilities do engagement and following the bikes during the track session.
    No doubt about the image quality of Fuji…I’m already a FujiX user with X-E1, X-E2 and some lens!
    Thanks in advance for a response.
