Fujifilm’s Latest X-Series Cameras
Fujifilm has added two new cameras to its X-Series – the new X100F and X-T20, successors to the X100T and X-T10 respectively. Both the cameras feature similar designs along with the new integrated sensors and processors which were first launched with the higher-end X-Pro2 and X-T2 last year. Both the cameras are now available in the US.
With a 24.3MP, APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro image processor to take clear, high resolution pictures, the camera offers smooth performance with fold-out sensitivity to ISO 51200. It upholds 23mm f/2 lens and offers a general wide-angle 35mm corresponding focal length and its optical design uses aspherical glass to result in sharp imagery whereas a Super EBC coating battles ghosting and flare. Designed to work in a variety of shooting situations, a heightened autofocus system now uses 91 total points which comprises of 49 phase-detection for quick and correct focusing. X100F is integrated with shutter speed, an ISO dial and a rear joystick which is controlled from the right side to allow seamless one-handed shooting. The X100F will be available in black and silver for $1,299.95.
X T20 is a mirrorless camera designed for photographers who want the flexibility and the quality of the X-series but in a more affordable package than the flagship XT2. The X T20 swaps its predecessor and comes with a great deal. The camera is integrated with a 24 MP/ APSC / X-Trans III sensor and image processors of the XT2 and X-Pro2 making it the most reasonably priced camera yet offering Fujifilm’s latest imaging technology. It not only receives all the Film Stimulations but the latest ACROS monochrome option with the phase-detected AF system enables it to focus across 40% of the frame. Including the XT2’s five custom Continuous AF profiles and the skill to incessantly autofocus at 8FPS (5FPS with live feedback) and even at 14FPS with the electronic shutter. The XT20 is also embedded with the 4K movie mode that could capture UHD at 24-30p at 100Mbit/s as well as 1080p & up to 60p with a microphone input.
The X-T20 doesn’t come with a joystick but instead offers a full touchscreen. It is available in black or silver for $899.95 (only the body). A kit with the 16-50mm lens will cost you another $999.95 and the 18-55mm kit is priced at $1,199.95. Lastly, Fujifilm is also officially broadcasting the new 50mm f/2 WR X-mount lens, which will work with the X-Pro2, X-T20, X-T2 and other compatible lens for the X-Series cameras.
