Fujifilm equips X-T20 system camera with 24-megapixel sensor and 4k film function

Fujifilm announces the X-T20 system camera. Like the top model X-T2, the device has a 24.3-megapixel sensor in the aps-c format, 325 autofocus points and a 4k movie function. In addition, Fujifilm presents the X100F, also with the same image sensor.

The Fujifilm X-T20 has an aps-c sized sensor. For autofocus, the camera uses phase detection points on the sensor. You can shoot at a maximum of eight frames per second. In 4k resolution, the X-T20 films with frame rates up to 30fps. In full HD resolution, that is a maximum of 60 fps.

The mirrorless camera has an electronic viewfinder that uses an OLED panel with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. At the back of the camera is a 3 “touch screen. The previous model did not have a touchscreen. The device has WiFi and can be controlled remotely via an app.

The Fujifilm X-T20 is the successor to the X-T10, which in turn was a smaller and cheaper version of the X-T1. Fujifilm repeats that concept with the new model; In many ways, the X-T20 is similar to the Fujifilm X-T2 announced last July. The more expensive top model distinguishes itself with a larger reinforced housing, an electronic viewfinder with a higher resolution and a higher shooting speed.

A suggested euro price has not yet been announced, but in the United Kingdom the camera body costs 799 pounds. In the US it’s $900. There will also be bundles with a 16-50 mm lens or the 18-55 mm f/2.8-4 OIS. The device should be on sale at the end of February.

Fujifilm announces the X100F together with the X-T20. This is a camera with a fixed 23mm f/2.0 lens. The new model has the same 24.3-megapixel sensor as the X-T20 and X-T2, but the 4k movie function is missing. The advanced compact camera also has fewer autofocus points. With 91 pieces, that is more than in the previous X100 model. The camera films in full HD resolution with a maximum of 60 fps. You can shoot at a maximum of eight frames per second.

Like the previous X100 models, the X100F has a hybrid viewfinder. Users can switch between digital or optical display in the viewfinder by flipping a lever. When activating the digital viewfinder, an LCD module with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels slides into the viewfinder.

Fujifilm has made adjustments to the housing. For example, a joystick has been added for selecting focus points and with the rotary knob to adjust the shutter speed, the ISO value can now also be set. The X100F will hit the market in mid-February for $1299 or £1249. A suggested euro retail price has not yet been announced.
