Price £799 (body only)

Fu­ji­Film’s X-T20 suc­ceeds 2015’s X-T10 model and brings with it im­prove­ments that are, at least in part, bor­rowed from Fu­ji­film’s flag­ship X-T2 model. This in­cludes Fu­ji­film’s lat­est X-Trans CmOs ii sen­sor, which pro­vides 24.3mP of ef­fec­tive res­o­lu­tion. This is paired with Fu­ji­film’s most re­cent X Pro­ces­sor Pro im­age pro­ces­sor to pro­vide a na­tive sen­si­tiv­ity range of isO 200-12,800 that can be fur­ther ex­panded to isO 100-51,200. While burst shoot­ing re­mains at a steady 8fps us­ing the me­chan­i­cal shut­ter, the X-T20 can also shoot at up to 14fps via its elec­tronic shut­ter.

The X-T20’s hy­brid aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem has also been im­proved and now em­ploys a to­tal of 91 AF points, com­pared to 49 on the X-T10. The new AF mod­ule in­cludes 49 phasede­tec­tion AF points, lo­cated in the cen­tral por­tion of the viewfinder. The rear lCD dis­play also benefits from a slightly higher res­o­lu­tion (1.04m- dots vs 922k- dots) while adding tilt and touch­screen con­trol to the mix. last but not least, the X-T20 is also ca­pa­ble of record­ing 4K video whereas the X-T10 maxed out at 1080p Full HD cap­ture.

The X-T20 re­tains the same 2.36m- dot elec­tronic viewfinder, which pro­vides 100% cov­er­age at a mag­ni­fi­ca­tion of 0.62x. in terms of de­sign, the X-T20 shares the same stylish retro-rangefinder aes­thetic of its pre­de­ces­sor, with milled alu­minium di­als on the top-plate and dual con­trol wheels pro­vid­ing a pleas­ingly tac­tile user ex­pe­ri­ence. un­like its se­nior rel­a­tive, the X-T2, the X-T20 is not weather sealed and isn’t sup­ported by a bat­tery grip.
