Fuji X-T20

Fuji's new X-T20 - a successor to the X T10 launched two years back is probably Fuji's best bang for the buck mirrorless camera to date . The camera , armed with a APSC sensor with 24MP , 4K UHD recording and a tiltable touchscreen display a generous ISO range upto 51200 , 325 AF points and a retro inspired design , the T20 will surely steal some of the thunder of the flagship T2 model as it costs half the price (body only - $900) .

Adopted from Fuji

[1] Compact, lightweight body ideal for stills and video use

Taking the body styling from the highly-regarded FUJIFILM X-T10, the X-T20 adds a Video option to the Drive Dial to enable instantaneous switching from still photo shooting to the video recording mode. The Exposure Compensation Dial now has the C position for exposure compensation up to ±5 stops, while the LCD monitor uses a tilting touchscreen panel for intuitive operation at almost any angle. The X-T20 is also equipped with an Auto mode selector lever for selecting the fully-automatic Advanced SR Auto mode where the camera chooses the optimum settings for a given scene.

[2] 24.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans™ CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine for outstanding image quality and high-speed response.

The X-T20 features the new ACROS Film Simulation mode, while the larger phase detection AF area and updated algorithm deliver an AF speed of 0.06sec.** at fastest speed. The X-T20 also offers 5.0fps live-view shooting, a quick start-up time of 0.4sec.***, shutter time lag of 0.050sec. and shooting interval of 0.25sec.

[3] AF-C Custom Settings for moving subjects

The X-T20 features AF-C Custom Settings where you can choose from five AF-C presets according to the way your chosen subject is moving. The AF algorithm has been revised for improved accuracy, resulting in a dramatic improvement when tracking a moving subject in the AF-C mode.

[4] High resolution and high definition 4K video recording

The X-T20 is capable of recording both Full HD and 4K video using the X Series' famous Film Simulation effects. You can output recorded video to an external monitor via the HDMI port and input audio from an external microphone.

[5] 24 high-performance FUJINON X-mount lenses for ultimate versatility

Our XF lens line-up now features 24 lenses after today's announcement of the FUJINON XF50mm F2 R WR. The very latest digital technologies have been used to develop X-mount lenses, which offer high-precision optical designs to deliver the highest possible image quality. The current line-up of lenses ranges from ultra wide-angle to super-telephoto and includes five fast aperture prime lenses. These lenses bring out the very best image quality from the X-T20. Optional accessories such as mount adapters and macro extension tubes further broaden photographic potential
