Fujifilm X-T20. Week with an expert

Introduction

Over the past year, Fujifilm has greatly updated its lineup with several very interesting cameras. Following the flagship Fujifilm X-T2, the Fujifilm X-T20 camera appeared , the hero of this review.

The novelty has a lot in common with the X-T2. It is equipped with the same APS-C format matrix – X-Trans CMOS III – with a resolution of 24 megapixels and the same advanced hybrid autofocus system. It uses 325 focus areas distributed throughout the frame field. Moreover, 169 of them are phase-type, their sensors are built directly into the matrix. Burst speed is 14 frames per second when working with an electronic shutter, with a mechanical shutter – 8 frames per second.

Fujifilm X-T20 is much more affordable than its predecessor: this camera is almost half the price, plus it has a lot of features that are useful to a novice photographer. For example, there is an intelligent auto mode Advanced SR AUTO and built-in flash. Ergonomics are also simplified.

The X-T20 has a touch screen. This compares the new product from previous models.

Fujifilm X is based on APS-C format matrices. Refusal of a full frame allowed to significantly reduce the dimensions of photographic equipment.

With the X-T20, you can use interchangeable optics from Fujifilm and other brands equipped with the Fujifilm X mount.

If you already have a camera and Fujifilm optics , then the X-T20 in the body configuration is a great option for an upgrade. You can also buy a kit with an inexpensive Fujinon XC 16-50mm F / 3.5-5.6 OIS lens or a more advanced fast Fujinon XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS lens. The second lens allows you to better reveal the potential of the camera.

Judging only by the characteristics, the new product and X-T2 have almost complete parity. X-T20 differs in the absence of a second slot for a memory card and a joystick for selecting AF points (there is also a touch screen). But compared to the X-T10, significant progress is noticeable: a new generation 24-megapixel sensor, an advanced focusing system, and 4K video recording.

But the camera can not be judged only by numbers. How will the X-T20 show itself in practice? Let’s explore all its features!
