The Fujifilm X-T20 Mirrorless Digital Camera offers a full Manual Mode for creative control and a handy Auto Mode that makes it simple to capture a wide range of scenes. These two modes combine with the tilting LCD monitor and touch screen operation for intuitive shooting.
Capture images exactly as you see them with dial-based controls and a variety of exposure modes. The compact and lightweight camera body, which sits comfortably in your hand, is both fun and simple to use. The Fujifilm X-T20 offers fully manual operation thanks to a shutter speed dial, exposure compensation dial, drive dial and other controls that have become synonymous with the X Series. Combinations of settings on the shutter speed dial and the lens’s aperture ring allow you to set exposure modes including program, shutter priority, aperture priority and manual even when the camera is turned off. The exposure compensation dial enables compensation of up to ±3 stops in 1/3 steps; putting the dial to the ‘C’ position allows exposure compensation of up to ±5 stops using the front command dial. Exposure can be precisely adjusted while checking the effect on the EVF.
Advanced SR Auto for intelligent, fully-automatic shooting. Set the Auto Mode Switch on the top plate to ‘Auto’ to select the Advanced SR Auto mode. The camera will then automatically select the optimum auto focus and exposure settings from 58 presets, including ‘Landscape’, ‘Night Landscape’, ‘Beach’, ‘Sunset’, ‘Blue Sky’, ‘Portrait’ and ‘Moving Subject’. All you have to do is press the shutter release. This mode is perfect for situations where it is difficult to choose the right exposure settings or when you just want to take quick shots. You can also select a specific preset of your choice.
High-precision, high-magnification EVF
The Fujifilm X-T20 features a 2.36M-dot organic EL electronic viewfinder. It uses four dedicated lens elements for a clear, high resolution image showing 100% of the image area that can be viewed even in bright outdoor conditions. The EVF has a smooth display thanks to a frame rate of 54.54fps and a time-lag of 0.005sec. It also shows the effects of Film Simulation and exposure settings in real time, so you can take photos knowing exactly how the image will turn out. This capability to reflect settings can be turned on and off; when turned off, the view replicates natural tones exactly as if viewed by the naked eye.
Tilting LCD & Touch Screen Monitor
The Fujifilm X-T20 features a 3.0-inch 1.04M-dot tilting TFT color LCD monitor with a 3:2 aspect ratio. The dot count is the same as the LCD monitors used in flagship models. It’s easy to view, even in bright outdoor conditions, making it comfortable to shoot both stills and video. The monitor tilts up and down allowing you to shoot while holding the camera at waist level or from high/low angles. All shooting information displayed in the LCD monitor can be turned off if you want to concentrate on your subject and the LCD monitor sits flush to the body when not in use, so it doesn’t compromise the Fujifilm X-T20’s sleek lines.
While shooting, the Fujifilm X-T20’s touch screen can be used for ‘Touch Focus’, ‘Focus Area Selection’ and ‘Touch Shot’. During playback, intuitive controls include swiping the screen to fast-forward video, and double-tapping it to zoom in and out.
X-Trans CMOS III Sensor + X-Processor Pro
The Fujifilm X-T20 features Fujifilm’s X-Trans CMOS III, a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sized sensor renowned for outstanding image quality when combined with high performance XF lenses. Thanks to its random pixel array, the sensor cuts outs moiré and false colors without needing an optical low-pass filter, plus it delivers impressive noise reduction up to ISO 12800. The sensor also offers excellent read speed, helping to improve the camera’s response in the burst mode, high-accuracy AF tracking, high-speed live view and high-quality video performance.
The Fujifilm X-T20’s X-Processor Pro image processing engine delivers a processing speed roughly 4x faster than previous models. The increased buffer memory boosts performance, drawing out the best from the X-Trans CMOS III sensor. This means that Acros has now been added to the popular set of Film Simulation modes, which are available for both stills and 4K video. X-Processor Pro also enhances overall performance with shorter shooting intervals, shutter release time lag and blackout time, as well as improving AF accuracy and the number of continuous frames possible in the burst mode.
Versatile AF modes
Choose between 91 or 325 focus points. The faster and more accurate phase detection pixels cover 50% (side-to-side) and 75% (top-to-bottom) of the frame. The camera offers Single Point AF for accurate focus on a selected focus point, Zone AF for a moving subject and Wide/Tracking AF. These modes are complemented by Face Detection/Eye Detection AF and manual focus modes, which give you a truly versatile range of options to choose from.
AF-C custom settings
The Fujifilm X-T20 offers AF-C presets for a variety of different subjects to make it easier to accurately track a moving subject. The camera offers five presets with optim ized parameters, including Ignoring Obstacles and Accelerating / Decelerating subjects.
8.0fps continuous shooting and reduced blackout time
The Fujifilm X-T20 boasts continuous shooting at 8.0fps when using the mechanical shutter and 5.0fps in the Live View mode. Its blackout time has been substantially reduced from previous models, allowing extended continuous shooting while following your subject in the viewfinder. In CH mode, you can write up to 62 jpeg images continuously.
Incredible 4K video
In addition to conventional Full HD video, the Fujifilm X-T20 also supports 4K video for amazing movie quality with minimal moiré and artifacts. The camera accepts both an HDMI monitor and an external microphone for full-scale video productions.
Film Simulation modes for video
Film Simulation modes are available even while recording 4K video. Enjoy versatile video effects, including monochrome video with Acros, and documentary-themed tones with Classic Chrome. You can also change settings such as aperture and exposure compensation during recording.
Fujifilm’s Film Simulation modes have been perfected over 80 years of photographic film manufacturing. They enable you to produce rich colors and tones perfectly suited to the subject, shooting conditions and your own creativity, just as if you were swapping between different photographic films. Images are delivered in premium jpeg quality. A total of 15 Film Simulation options are available including Provia, which faithfully reproduces colors exactly as you remember each scene, Velvia, Astia and Classic Chrome, which focus on artistic effects, Pro Neg. Hi / Pro Neg. Std for outstanding reproduction of natural skin tones and the new Acros for a traditional monochrome look.
Apply various filter effects to create unique images. 8 effects are available, including Toy Camera for a retro look, Miniature for a diorama effect, Pop Color for high contrast and saturation, as well as High Key, Low Key, Dynamic Tone, Soft Focus and Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple). All effects can be previewed as you shoot on the LCD screen.
Pan the camera using the on-screen guide to shoot several frames and the Fujifilm X-T20 will merge them into an amazing panoramic image. You can choose between L for a 180-degree shot and ‘M’ for a 120-degree shot.
Interval Timer shooting
Shoot the same subject from a fixed point or try time lapse photography with settings including shooting interval (1 sec – 24 hours), total number of frames (1 – ∞), and a self-timer for setting when to start a time lapse (1 minute later – 24 hours).
X Mount Lenses
Every facet of the development and design of Fujifilm’s original X Mount began with a clean slate. The result was the marriage of high-precision optical engineering with the latest digital technology. From the acclaimed high resolution XF lens series to the compact portability of the XC lens series, each lens exploits the full potential of the X Mount’s descriptive performance.
