There are just two rounds to go in the 2019 Fujifilm Trophy competition – with round winners to be published in the July/August and September/October issues of the magazine – so if you want to have a shot then you’ll need to get snapping. The grand prize winner – selected from all six round winners in the year – will be announced in the November/December 2019 issue. To enter the 2019 Fujifilm Trophy competition, you must be resident in Australia. If so, then you can enter both these final two rounds, submitting four images each time. Please make sure you provide all the necessary camera and film/capture details on the entry coupon provided in the current issue of Australian Camera (and which can be copied if you don't want to cut up your magazine). All entries must be accompanied by a fully completed entry coupon.

Fujifilm’s X-Pro2 is a pretty juicy camera in its standard black finish, but the Graphite Edition is even more elegant with a high-grade metallic finish created via a special multi-layering process which gives an added lustre. It’s weather-sealed as well, with a classical dial-based control layout. On the inside, you get the brilliant ‘Advanced Hybrid Multi Viewfinder’ which gives you the best of the optical and electronic viewfinders, a 24.3 million (effective) pixels ‘X-Trans CMOS III’ sensor, the powerful ‘X Processor Pro’, continuous shooting at up to 8.0 fps and Fujifilm’s ‘Film Simulation’ presets – including ACROS for fine-grained B&Ws and Classic Chrome for more traditional transparency film colours.

In terms of highly desirable mirrorless cameras, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite Edition is at the top of the pile, and you could soon join a very exclusive club of owners. One of these is David Edwards who won the 2018 Fujifilm Trophy grand prize, and his winning shot is reproduced at the head of this article.
