The Fujifilm X-T20 is a mid-range SLR-styled mirrorless digicam that rests above the X-E2S and below the X-T2. The X-T20 changes the X-T10 and provides many additional features, such as Fujifilm’s newest 24MP CMOS indicator and picture processer, quicker rush capturing, any enhanced auto-focus program, 4K movie catch and more. In many ways, it’s a compact sized, cheaper ‘little brother’ to the X-T2, a digicam that gained a Silver Prize when we analyzed it last year.
The X-T20 discovers itself in an aggressive area of both ‘mirrored’ (DSLR) and mirrorless cameras. Customers are likely to find themselves determining between mid-range DSLRs like the Nikon D5600 and Canon EOS 77D, as well as mirrorless designs such as the Sony models a6300, Panasonic GX850 and the Olympus E-M5 II.
Fujifilm X-T20 Key Features
- 24MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor
- Up to 325 selectable AF factors (169 of that provide stage detection)
- 2.36M-dot OLED digital viewfinder
- 3″ 1.04M-dot slanting touchscreen display screen LCD
- 4K UHD movie at up to 30 fps, with fresh outcome over HDMI
- 8 fps ongoing capturing with AF, 5 fps with stay view
- 2.5mm port for exterior mic or wired distant control
- Dials for visibility settlement, shutter amount and generate mode
The X-T20 is more about the overall program than one or two specifications that stand apart. That said, the 24MP indicator has confirmed its value on the X-Pro2 and X-T2, and the AF program has also been enhanced in an excellent way. The EVF is an enjoyment to use, though the contact features on the slanting LCD are restricted. The rush amount has not modified since the X-T10, but the shield dimension has been considerably improved. 4K movie has also been included, assisting to keep the X-T20 at an even level with the best of its colleagues.
And let’s not ignore the kind of the digicam which has become a signature of Fujifilm’s X-series designs. The traditional DSLR-style design isn’t getting old (at least for this reviewer) and the construction is excellent for a $900 body.
The X-T20’s dynamic variety is much the same as its siblings’. The obvious advanced stage of lowest boosting means it’s not quite a coordinate for the Sony models a6300, since ISO 200 is its smallest establishing, but usually it is including very little digital disturbance to its pictures, such that you can lighten up photos taken at low ISO with almost no disturbance cost, in comparison with capturing them at a greater ISO establishing. This can also be seen if you take darkness details up: it has a likewise low disturbance stage to the best of its APS-C indicator colleagues.
While the X-T20 gets many things from the higher-end X-T2, its movie top quality and functions are not as effective. The X-T20 can catch 4K UHD movie at 29.97p, 25p, 24p and 23.98p for up to 10 moments, at a bit amount of 100Mbps. Losing down to Complete HD, structure amount of 59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 25p, 24p and 23.98p are available, with a 15 min time structure restrict and 36Mbps bitrate. The same choices available at 1280 x 720, with dual it efforts and at 50 percent the bit amount.
Available movie manages consist of concentrate peaking, guide sound stage modification and fresh HDMI outcome. As said before, you can modify visibility settlement while using Automatic ISO in guide visibility method. Since it has a touchscreen display screen, you can tap topics on which you wish to concentrate, which makes rack-focusing easy. What you don’t get are zebra styles, a histogram and experience recognition (with 4K). The X-T2 provides experience recognition as well as F-Log gamma which is wonderful for capturing in complicated circumstances if you’re willing to create quality the video.
Where the X-T2 oversamples the indicator to generate amazing 4K movie, the X-T20 does not, instead sub-sampling but using just the complete size of the indicator. By doing that, top quality isn’t as good, though there’s no plants aspect like what’s found on the X-T2.
Auto-focus and Performance
Not amazingly, the X-T20 has a lot that is similar to the AF program on the X-T2. That is to say that it has on-sensor stage recognition that includes 50% of the structure side to side and 75% top to bottom.
There are three AF ways to select for both AF-S and AF-C: single-point, place and wide/tracking. In single-point method you may pick from 91 or 325 factors using the four-way operator. Zone AF allows you to determine a concentrate place 3×3, 5×5 or 7×7 factors in ‘size.’ Wide/tracking method basically requires the whole structure.
When using ongoing AF, the place method will try to keep whatever is under that concentrate place in concentrate as your topic (or you) navigate around the structure. Wide/tracking is identical, except for that it’ll monitor a topic across the whole field-of-view. We’ll see how those two ways execute in a short time.
The X-T20 provides five different configurations that determine how it manages topic activity. You can’t fine-tune it like on the X-T2, but most of the X-T20’s colleagues don’t allow you to modify this at all.
Body system and Handling
The SLR-styled X-T20’s construction surpasses that of what you’d anticipate from a digicam costing $899 (body only). It’s made almost entirely of mineral magnesium metal, with very little nasty available. The calls on the top dish are strong and have just the correct amount of ‘notchy-ness.’
From an ergonomic office viewpoint, the X-T20 is mostly well thought-out, though there’s room for enhancement. The shutter launch is very little, the auto/manual change way too easy to push, and the Fn key is very difficult to achieve. The control buttons on the back dish are also very little. A joystick for establishing the main concentrate factor would’ve been a welcome boost. Arriving along for the drive are a 3″ slanting touchscreen display screen LCD and a high quality digital viewfinder that’s enjoyable to use.
Autofocus and Performance
The auto-focus system on the X-T20 is actually the same as on the X-T2. It has on-sensor stage recognition that includes 50% of the structure side to side and 75% top to bottom. Among cameras with PDAF, that’s a fairly little area but it expands far enough to border things on the ‘thirds’ gridlines. There are 91 selectable auto-focus factors, with 325 available for more accurate placement of the AF factor.
When capturing with individual AF, the X-T20 concentrate easily and perfectly. When using ongoing AF, you does seem to search, particularly in low light, whether taking a still or catching movie (especially 4K).
Image and Video Quality
The 24MP X-Trans CMOS indicator on the X-T20 is very much a known amount, and it provides the same outstanding picture high quality that we’ve seen on other designs that use it. Its JPEG motor is one of the best out there, with very attractive shade and a lot of details. Disturbance stages are relatively low when ISOs improve.
The X-T20’s 4K movie high quality is outstanding with, again, outstanding shade and a affordable amount of details. It’s not as effective as you’ll find from Fujifilm’s own X-T2 or Sony’s a6300, both of which oversample, but for a $900 digicam, most people will be very enthusiastic about the outcome.
