The Mirrorless X-T20 Replaces The X-T10 And Offers A Higher ISO Ceiling

Fujifilm has revealed the X-T20, a successor to the popular X-T10 that improves on it in nearly every way. The previous 16-megapixel sensor and processor have been upgraded to the 24.3-megapixel X-Trans III, the same as the one on the world-beating X-T2. That will give it not only a lot resolution but a more faster autofocus and shooting speed (5.0 fps in live-view). It does 4K video at up to 30 fps, another feature that imported from Fujifilm X-T2.

The Fujifilm X-T20 beats the Fujifilm X-T2 on one front, because it is the first camera from Fujifilm to get all the features on its 3-inch LCD screen. As you would see you can use the touch controls to either tap-to-shoot or swipe though and zoom into pictures, and given that display also flips out it should do a cracking job of taking photos in awkward spaces.

It is got the similar 2.3 million dot OLED viewfinder and button layout and basic knob as the X-T10, all of which is a great thing, considering the older model’s classic looks and ease of use. Additional features include a WiFi, and many creative filters as well as support for all the APS-C X-mount Fujinon lenses, that are widely considered as some of the best you can get for the price.

Fujifilm’s new autofocus system should be enough responsive to your taps. Its new phase detection autofocus system and hybrid contrast offers greater coverage and more focus points to keep moving subjects sharp.

In fact, there doesn’t seem to be a lot missing from the X-T20 over X-T2, other than its higher 8-fps shooting speed, and water-resistant body as well as dual-tilting rear screen. That would make it irresistible to a lot of new photographers, considering that the Fujifilm X-T2 runs about $1,599 for the body alone and the X-T20 will cost $899 but it not include a lens when it goes in sale next month.
