Fujifilm X-T20 Review

Fujifilm X-T20: DSLM from High-end to mid-range price
Fujifilm X-T20

The Fujifilm X-T20 turns out to be a strong battle to the competition and a definite reason for an upgrade from the predecessor model. The DSLM combines modern equipment such as touch display and UHD video with first-class picture quality and fast autofocus. Among the few weak points are the comparatively short battery life as well as Short series recording and recharge time.

With the Fujifilm X-T20, is an attractive revision of the mid-class DSLM series. The most important innovation? Clearly, the X-Trans-III CMOS sensor known from the big sister models X-T2 and X-Pro 2 . The high-resolution UHD video mode and the fast-paced focus system are also reminiscent of the X-T2. With the best of it: the Fujifilm X-T20 costs only about half as much as the two flagships. Is it an unrestricted bargain recommendation.

Fujifilm X-T20: Large in features and small in dimension
The Fujifilm X-T20 can be set to meet the highest standards when it is turned on for the first time. The DSLM is fast to operate, is very comfortable in the hand and likes with a valuable processing. The controls on the back are easy to reach. And for the operating modes, the shutter speed and the exposure correction, the manufacturer has his own setting wheels for fast access.

The autofocus system is already known from the X-T2. Up to 325 separate focus points are available as well as zone AF and an intelligent focus mode, which independently analyzes motif situations, recognizes faces and even eyes and tracks motifs in five different pre-programmed situations. For manual focusing, extras such as focus peaking, a magnifying glass, and a focus scale with sharpening depth indicator are on board.In terms of speed, the Fujifilm X-T20 is always snapshot ready: even in low light, the subject appears in only about 0.4 seconds.

The serial recording writes up to eight images per second on the memory card with mechanical shutter. With silent triggering with an electronic shutter even up to 14 pictures per second can be used. Compared to many opponents, however, the series mode has upper limits. In the test, the Fujifilm X-T20 comes to a halt after 42 JPEGs or 23 RAW recordings. During the writing process can be recordings Although already considered, but "lame" the camera something. The responsible bottle neck: The aged UHS-I standard of the SD card compartment , which lies directly next to the batteryDiscover the latest mobile phone accessories at Media Markt! - a disadvantage in matters of mobility.

Fujifilm X-T20: A few extras are missing
The 385 gram light aluminum housing is unfortunately not like the X-T2 dust and splash water protected, but is pleasantly slip resistant in the hand. For wireless communication the camera uses WLAN, Bluetooth and GPS are missing. The location data can however be written into the image data via the free app for iOS and Android. To connect, the camera opens its own wireless network, which is recognized by the smartphone. Small drawback: The camera is occasionally "frozen" in the connection setup. In addition to the image transmission, smartphones also function as a comfortable remote control without large transmission charges.

On the back, the three-inch touch screen, which provides a sharp image display with 1.04 million pixels. Thanks to the touch function, the focus point can be placed directly on the LCD with a finger. In the picture display it is even possible to move the images with the finger or to zoom in with a two fingers into a picture. In the menu newly introduced with the X-Pro2 the touch function is unfortunately not available.

Fujifilm X-T20: Compulsory accessory Secondary Battery is needed
The fact that the viewfinder as well as the display will consume more battery power, illustrate the measured maximum 450 images per charge. The predecessor X-T10 showed a significantly lower consumption of battery and came upto 700 recordings. if your camera would have to be on for several hours a second rechargeable battery should therefore be part of the compulsory equipment, especially since the battery is only charged with the enclosed charger.
