    FujiFilm GFX 100 - 102MP with Image Stabilization

    The compact FujiFilm GFX 50R, which has recently been described by us, was only a starter before a main dish, which is GFX 100. The presented camera is a medium-format one whose heart is a 102MP (43,8 x 32,9mm) sensor with full frame coverage with phase-detection pixels. It is not the first construction on the market equipped with the sensor of such high resolution, but for the first time we have to do with the sensor equipped with image stabilization, thanks to which, with the use of GFX 100, we will be able to make sharp photographs with the use of a tripod. Videos can be recorded in 4K with the speed of 30f/s. It has been announced that, contrary to GFX 50S and 50R, available filming functions will be significantly expanded. 1). FujiFilm GFX 100 From the attached photographs, we can see that it is truly oldschool - we will possibly find a set of classic knobs and buttons and the very body will be big and solid, which should encourage the use of big and heavy lenses. A vertical grip was placed at the bottom of the camera's body. It will facilitate making portraits. At the upper wall, we will find an auxiliary LCD screen. The date of premiere of GFX 100 and its price are not known yet. Together with the premiere of the new camera, the appearances of new medium-format GF lenses have been announced. GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR (the equivalent of 40mm for full frame) and GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR (the equivalent of 79-158mm for full frame) are to appear on the market in 2019. GF 45-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR (the equivalent of 25-221mm for full frame) is to appear on the market in 2020. 2). FujiFilm G Mount Lens Roadmap

    Fujifilm GFX 50R Announcement

    Fujifilm GFX 50R is a compact version of GFX 50S and is the cheapest medium-format mirrorless FujiFilm camera, which was presented two years ago. Thanks to a smaller size, traveling with it should become less troublesome. It is also significantly cheaper than its older brother. When it comes to the specification of both cameras, at first glance we will not find any differences. Both cameras are equipped with the 51.4MP and have the dimensions of 43.8 x 32.9mm. The heart of both devices is X Processor Pro. We can take photographs with the maximum speed of 3f/s, within the ISO range of 100 - 12800 (extendable to ISO 102400). The cameras record videos in Full HD with the speed of 30f/s and they are equipped with the 114-point autofocus. 1). Fujifilm GFX 50R The differences between the two FujiFilm cameras concern their constructions and sizes. GFX 50R is significantly smaller, its dimensions are 161 x 97 x 66mm and it weighs 775g. A smaller construction led to a change in the camera's ergonomics - on the upper panel, there are only dedicated shutter speed and exposure control knobs. At the back, we will not find a 4-direction selector - it has been replaced with gesture handling on the touch screen. There are also four function buttons, two knobs and the AF joystick. 2). Fujifilm GFX 50R The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder made in OLED technology, which offers the resolution of 3.69MP at 0.77x zoom. A rotated LCD 3.2" touch screen has the resolution of 2.33MP. We also have two SD card slots in the UHS-II standard and thanks to Bluetooth, our camera will be able to remain in constant connectivity with other devices, ensuring, for instance, the transfer of taken photographs. A fully-charged battery enables taking 400 photographs, the camera is sealed and compatible with Capture One software. 3). Fujifilm GFX 50R As we've already mentioned at the beginning of the article, FujiFilm GFX 50R is the cheapest medium-format mirrorless camera on the market. It will appear on sale next month and it will cost $4499.

    Fujifilm X-T3 Announcement

    The mirrorless Fujifilm X-T3 camera in its third version can boast about the 26MP sensor, an improved AF, a more effective processor, an advanced movie mode and improved ergonomics. Will it still set trends? Let's see! The heart of X-T3 is the fourth-generation sensor called X-Trans CMOS APS-C, which has been specially designed from the basics for this particular model. It has the resolution of 26MP and it is not equipped with a low-pass filter. Still, it is the first Fujifilm camera from the X series which has BSI (back-illuminated structure), thanks to which the camera should work better while taking photographs in higher sensitivity ranges. The ISO range is 160-1280 and it can be extended to ISO 80, 100, 125, 25600 and 51200. 1). Fujifilm X-T3 Unfortunately, unlike in X-H1, the presented camera is not equipped with the in-built image stabilization. The image processor of X-T3 is X-Processor 4, it is equipped with four cores and, according to the producer, it is to ensure an increase in the speed of data processing by one third, in comparison to the predecessors. X-T3 has a mechanical shutter and it can work with the speed of 11f/s. The series can include around 36 uncompressed RAW photographs. After choosing the electronic shutter, the speed can exceed to 20 f/s in full resolution and after the activation of Sports Finder function, we can save photographs with the speed of 30f/s. With the use of the Sports Finder function, images can be cut up to 1.25x, which will be distinguished by bright lines on the viewfinder. 2). Fujifilm X-T3 The producer's priority was improving the work of AF. The new sensor is equipped with 2.16 millions of phase-detection pixels, which results in the 4x increase in comparison to the present models. The detection involves almost 100% of the frame, thanks to which the AF is supposed to work in a quick and precise way, also with regard to the objects beyond the center of the frame. AF X-T3 is equipped with 425 points. In low light conditions, X-T3 achieves the effectiveness of 3EV. 3). Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Thanks to the use of the effective X-Processor 4, the operation of phase-detection algorithms was improved - now the camera corrects sharpness and exposure measure 1.5x faster than the existing models of this producer. Face and eye detection in AF-C was also improved. A novelty is the function of the “initial photograph”, thanks to which the camera starts photographing already after the shutter is pressed halfway. Fujifilm X-T3 is a milestone in terms of video registration. The material in 10-bit range of colors can be saved on SD cards in 4K with the speed of 60f/s and it can be watched on the devices connected to the camera by means of HDMI cable. Video can be saved in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC or in the newer format - H.265/HEVC. The bit rate during recording amounts to 200Mbps. At the same time, we can share the image on an external device. The data read speed has also increased which enables the reduction of the rolling shutter effect. Video can be also saved in F-Long and, after the software update announced for the end of the year, also in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) – in one of the ITU-R BT.2100 standards. 4). Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS New noise-reduction algorithms of X-T3 compare two adjacent movie frames and, on the basis of their analysis, reduce disruptions. The minimum ISO value in F-Long and DR400% amounts to ISO 640. When it comes to the look, Fujifilm X-T3 is not much different than its predecessor, X-T2 - the body is made of magnesium and sealed. The upper knobs are now bigger and grooves made on them are deeper – the same with more accentuated buttons which significantly improves comfortable use. At the back, we will find a 3" LCD screen with the resolution of 1.04MP, the screen can be rotated in three directions and, contrary to its predecessors, is a touch one. The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 3.69MP and the 0.75x zoom. The viewfinder delay is 0.005s and the refresh rate is 100f/s. The camera has two SD card slots, it is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which enable data transfer to other devices. On the body we will also find a headphone connector and a USB-C connector so we will be able to connect, for instance, a microphone. 5). Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR + VG-XT3 Battery Grip The systemic news which are worth mentioning include for instance adding "monochromatic regulation" to the photosensitive film mode, which enables obtaining diverse color exposition. A novelty in the format is the Color Chrome effect, which ensures deeper color and richer color gradation during taking photographs of objects with high color saturation. Fujifilm X-T3 will appear on sale in a few days and it will be available in two color versions: silver and black. The camera's body will cost $1500 and the set of X-T3 + the XF 18 - 55 lens will cost $1900.

The camera is equipped with the 24.2MP APS-C sensor with a conventional primary color filter (Bayer filter). XT10 has a permanently built-in Fujinon 18.5mm f/2.8 lens with the equivalence of 28mm. The photographers willing to reduce the focal length will have an "electronic teleconverter" at their disposal, thanks to which they will be able to narrow the field of vision to 35 or 50mm. We will be able to save photographs in RAW or JPEG formats, with the maximum speed of 6f/s. The ISO range is 200-12800 and this parameter can be extended to ISO 100 - 51200. The camera is equipped with the 91 - point phase-detection AF. It will be possible to record videos in 4K with the use of XF10, but only with the speed of 15f/s. In order to record a video with satisfactory smoothness, we will have to resign from 4K and use Full HD (59.94p / 50p / 24p / 23.98p) instead. At the back of the camera, there is a 3'' LCD touch screen, with the resolution of 1 040 000 points. Unfortunately, it cannot be rotated. The screen is equipped with the option of gesture recognition, with the use of which we will be able to activate the camera's functions. At the back of XF10, we will not find a classic, 4-direction selector nor many dedicated buttons which we could expect. Still, there is an AF joystick, which, apart from enabling the choice of the focus point, will also facilitate menu navigation. The upper part of the camera is a bit more classic. There we will find the PASM knob with an improved SR+ automated mode as well as a separate exposition knob and a function button. The new Fujifilm is equipped with Bluetooth, thanks to which we will be able to transfer files to other devices. The process will be facilitated by Fujifilm Camera Remote application. XF10 also offers 11 film simulation modes and 19 filters, including two new ones: 'Rich & Fine' and 'Monochrome'. The camera has been designed in the retro style. Its housing is angular, with a slightly rounded handle covered with leatherette. We will have only 2 colors to choose from: black and champagne.

  6. The second lens which had its premiere today is Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, an ultra-wide angle zoom which ensures the equivalence of 12-24mm f/2.8. This lens will surely be gladly welcomed by many landscape and architecture photographers. Inside a new wide-angle Fujijon zoom we will find the optical system consisting of 20 elements, placed in 13 groups. Among them there are 4 aspheric lenses, which are supposed to control distortions and spherical aberrations, as well as 3 ED elements and 3 super-ED ones. Additionally, the back part of two front lenses is covered with the Nano-GI coating, which is supposed to eliminate light leaks and flares caused by a diagonal incidence of light on optical elements. 1). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR A 9-blade aperture with a nominal f/2.8 hole, which can be closed up to f/22, is responsible for image plasticity. The construction of the lens is supposed to guarantee the advanced image reproduction functions within the whole range of apertures and focal lengths. 2 liner autofocus motors are responsible for focusing. This should positively influence the speed and precision of focus adjustment – also from the minimum focus distance of 25 cm. 2). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR New Fujinon is also supposed to work effectively in hard, demanding conditions. The tube is made of magnesium and it is additionally sealed in 11 places. As a result, the lens is to be resistant to dust, splashes and low temperatures (-10° C). The lens weighs 805g and it has the dimensions of 122 x 88mm. Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is to appear on sale at the end of November. It will cost $2000. Today Fuji also presented an updated map of lenses. We've found three interesting constructions there: XF 33mm f/1 R WR which ensures the equivalence of 50mm f/1.5, wide-angle fixed lens 16mm f/2.8 and a stabilized zoom 16-80mm f/4. 3). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR
  7. The photographers who use the Fujifilm system surely have reasons to be delighted. Today Fujifilm presented two promising lenses for the XF system, XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR and XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, which we've discussed in a separate article. Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR is a good-looking beast which has been designed for sports and nature photography. The optical system of XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR consists of 19 elements, placed in 14 groups. Among them there is one super-ED lens and two ED ones. The front optical element is covered with a fluorite anti-reflective coating which is supposed to prevent light reflections. 1). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR Perfect image quality is to be achieved not only thanks to a 9-blade aperture but also thanks to a precise lens-polishing technology, which is used in very expensive lenses sold by the producer. Apart from a great optical system, new Fujinon is also supposed to be distinguished due to its ultra-quick, precise and quiet autofocus system. The lens applies linear motors and it is equipped with a new mechanism which immobilizes focusing lenses when the camera is not used. The lens also possesses a new Focus Preset function which immediately changes focus to a specific position, enabling photographers to catch a main object in the frame without a need to regulate focusing. 2). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR What's more, the lens offers a 5-grade vibration reduction, which, as the producer states, recognizes photography conditions and automatically applies the optimal image stabilization control. Of course, the lens is fully made of magnesium and it is sealed in 17 sensitive points. The construction weighs 2265g and it has the dimensions of 206 x 122mm. The lens is covered with a light mat coating whose task is to reflect sun rays and, as a result, prevent the construction's overheating. 3). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR New XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR will be available as a set with the XF1.4X TC f/2 WR teleconverter. Thanks to this we will be able to increase the focal length range from 305mm to 427mm (full-frame equivalence) but, at the same time, we will lose one f-stop. After connecting to the teleconverter, the nominal hole will be f/2.8. The XF1.4X TC f/2 WR converter consists of 7 optical elements (including 1 aspheric lens), placed in 4 groups. 4). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR Fujifilm Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR will be available on sale at the end of October and it will cost $6000.

    Fujifilm X-T100 Announcement

    We’ve been hearing rumors concerning a premiere of a new Fujifilm mirrorless camera for some time. As it’s often the case, the rumors turned out to be true and a new, X-T100 model has seen the light of day. The heart of the camera is the 24.2Mp ASP-C sensor, which is a step backwards compared to the higher models of the producers in which the X-Trans sensor was used. The producer has not announced what kind of an image processor has been used in the device, but we can suspect that it’s EXR Procesor II, known from the X-A5 models for amateur photographers. In an optimistic scenario, this may be X Procesor Pro, known from the latest mirrorless cameras of the company. 1). Fujifilm X-T100 The camera works within the native ISO range of 200 to 12800. This parameter can be extended to ISO 100-51200 and it is also available in 14-bit RAW and JPEG formats. We will also have 3 Auto ISO modes. Light measurement takes into account 256 zones, and the following modes will be available: Multi, Spot, and Average (no Central Weight mode). In the continuous shooting mode, we will be able to take photographs with the speed of 6f/s or, maximally, 26f/s in JPEG. 4K films (3840 x 2160) will be recorded with the speed of 16f/s. This may slightly discourage vloggers, despite the use of other conveniences targeted at this group of recipients, which will be discussed later on. In order for our film to be smooth, we will have to be satisfied with Full HD quality (59.94p / 50p / 24p / 23.98p). 2). Fujifilm X-T100 The 91-point, intelligent, hybrid, phase-detection Auto Focus is responsible for focus adjustment. The producer promises that the AF will work faster, thanks to a new, more precise algorithm. The following AF modes are available: one-point 7x13 (changeable AF frame size, 5 types available), zone 3x3 / 5x5 / 7x7 (91 zones in the 7x13 grid), wide/tracking (up to 18 zones, AF-S: wide, AF-C: tracking). The camera is also equipped with the face and eye detection features. 3). Fujifilm X-T100 Fujifilm X-T100 is yet another of the producer’s devices which has been designed in the retro style. The anodized body has the dimensions of 121 x 83 x 47,4 mm and it weighs 448g, including the battery and the SD card. There are three color versions to choose from: Champagne Gold, Black and Dark Silver. At the back of the camera, there is a 3’’ LCD TFT screen, with the resolution of 1.04 Mp. A new solution has been used to mount the display – the screen can now be rotated upwards, downwards and it can be maximally folded and rotated by 180 degrees. These functions should be especially interesting for vloggers and selfie lovers. The screen is, of course, a touch one. 4). Fujifilm X-T100 Fujifilm has also not forgotten about more traditional users – the camera is equipped with a traditional viewfinder, created in OLED technology, with the resolution of 2.36 Mp. The viewfinder with the eyepoint of 17.5mm covers 100% of the frame and the image is zoomed by 0.62x. X-T100 has been equipped with a pop-up flash, with the lithium-ion battery, with the use of which, as the producer assures, we will be able to take 430 photographs. Something new and something old – this is Fujifilm’s concept for the placement of buttons and knobs in the new camera. There is, of course, a classic PASM knob with a new, improved SR+ mode, combining the detection of the object and the photographed scene. The second knob will be used for exposure adjustment. There is also a function button and yet another secret knob whose application is not known yet. 5). Fujifilm X-T100 The only deviation from the rectangular composition of the camera, which could be called “ergonomic”, is a tiny substitute of the thumb profile. A handle imitating grip can be mounted on the camera. Next to the screen, there is a traditional, four-direction selector, menu activation button and the control knob. 6). Fujifilm X-T100 Thanks to the use of the Bluetooth technology, the photographs taken with the use of X-T100 can be directly transferred to a smartphone or a tablet. The Fujifilm Camera Remote application will ensure smooth transfer of the photographs from the camera to one of our devices, and, at our request, to the Internet. The camera is compatible with the Fujifilm Instax SP-3 printer so we will be able to instantly print out our photographs and have them in a physical form, just like primitive people from the previous age The camera’s body will cost $599. The camera will be available in the middle of June. ORDER LINKS Fujifilm X-T100 Dark Silver + XC15-45mm Kit Lens - Amazon Please, support us and shop with affiliate links. THANKS! 🙂
  11. Fujifilm released firmware update version 4.01 for the Fujifilm X-T2 camera that basically rolled back the previous firmware 4.0 due to several "malfunctions". Additional information on the reported issues can be found at FujiAddict: www.fujiaddict.com

    Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 Announcement

    It may seem ironic that the camera which resembles the logo of one of the most popular social media is in fact one of very few devices from which we will not be able to post any photographs on social media (maybe apart from the scans). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6, as this is the camera that we're talking about, is a fully analog camera for instant photography. SQ6 records images in the 1:1 format, with the dimensions of 61mm x 61mm, using Instax inserts, which we got to know last year, along with the presentation of Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 - a digital predecessor of SQ6. Instax inserts with black rims are a novelty. 1). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 In the automatic exposure adjustment mode, SQ6 will do all the work for us. The camera will examine the conditions in which we would like to take a photograph and it will, on the basis of the obtained information, adjust proper shutter speed within the range of 1.6 s to 1/400 s. It will also decide about the necessity of using flash and its power. 2). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 The camera is equipped with 7 photography modes. One of them is the self-portrait mode, which will enter optimal focus and brightness settings. A small mirror placed near the camera's lens will be very helpful in better framing of selfies. 3). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 In the Macro mode, we will be able to take photographs from the distance of 30cm and in the landscape mode - from the distance of more than 2m. The double exposure mode will help in placing 2 photographs on one another, the D (dark) mode will darken and the L (light) mode will brighten the photographs. The camera is equipped with the buttons which enable turning off the flash. On the rear wall, we will find a self-timer button. 4). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 There are also some curiosities: 3 colorful filters placed on the flash - purple, orange and green, with the use of which we will be able to obtain an artistic atmosphere of the "old polaroid" photographs. 5). Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 is almost square, its dimensions are 118.7 x 128.1 x 58.1mm and it weighs 393g. The camera can be mounted on a tripod. SQ6 will be available in 3 color versions: white pearl, poppy red gold and graphite. It will appear on sale on May 25, 2018.
  13. Fujifilm has just presented a long-awaited medium-format lens - GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR. Apart from the lens, the GF 1.4X TC WR teleconverter and the MCEX-18G WR 18mm and MCEX-45G WR 45mm macro rings have also had their premieres. Fujinon GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR is a construction consisting of 16 elements placed in 11 groups. Among them we can find two lenses made of ED glass and one made of Super ED glass. The lens has a 9-blade aperture with the maximum light of f/4. With the focal length of 250mm, which is the equivalent of 200mm for full-frame frame, we can expect perfect background blurring. The new lens has been equipped with a quiet and quick autofocus and a new mechanism for adjusting the position of the linear motor. Its minimum focus distance is 1.4 metres. Apart from that, the lens is equipped with the image stabilization with the 5-grade vibration reducing. 1). Fujifilm Fujinon GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR Everything is enclosed in a resistant magnesium body which has the dimensions of 204x108mm and which weighs 1425g. The lens is, of course, sealed and the front lens is additionally covered with water and dirt resistant fluorite coating. 2). Fujifilm GF 1.4X TC WR Teleconverter Fujifilm has also presented the GF 1.4X TC WR teleconverter, which will extend the focal length of the lens to 277mm (the equivalent for full-frame frame) and two Macro rings: MCEX-18G WR 18mm and MCEX-45G WR 45mm. 3). MCEX-18G WR 18mm and MCEX-45G WR 45mm Macro Rings The GF 250mm f/4 R LM OIS WR lens is to appear on sale at the end of May and it will cost $4125 dollars. The GF 1.4X TC WR teleconverter will cost $1060 and the macro rings - $410.

    Fujifilm X-A5 Announcement

    Fujifilm has presented a successor of the X-A3 model from 2016. The new model is called X-A5 and it's supposed to be a more effective and improved version of A3. The camera is equipped with the CMOS APS-C sensor with the resolution of 24Mp. The sensor is supported by a processor (1.5x more effective than in the previous model) thanks to which we will be able to take photographs within the ISO range of 200-12800, with a possibility of expanding to 100-51200. The maximum speed of photographing is 6f/s. 1). Fujifilm X-A5 The new X-A5 is equipped with the phase-detection autofocus thanks to which focusing is supposed to be faster and make tracking of objects moving through the frame more effective. Huge novelties are the possibilities of recording films in 4K (the maximum length - 5 minutes) and in 4x slow-motion in HD, with the use of High-Speed HD Video. 2). Fujifilm X-A5 When it comes to ergonomy, the camera is almost identical to its predecessor. The body is in the retro style with a slightly accentuated grip. The 3'' touchscreen is folding and its resolution is 1 040 000 points. We can fold it in such a way that during a full folding it is not blocked by the body. With the use of a new battery, we will be able to take 450 photographs. 3). Fujifilm X-A5 Fujifilm X-A5 will be available in three color versions: black, brown and pink. The camera with the XC 15-45 mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS lens will cost $599.

    Fujifilm X100F Announcement

    Fujifilm X100F is a compact brother of the X-Pro 2 model, which had its upgrade almost 3 years ago. The camera is equipped with a 24 megapixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor, supported by a quick X-Processor Pro image processor. This set enables us to work with the speed up to 8fps with 200-12.800 sensitivity, and record movies in Full HD 1080p with a maximum speed of 60fps. 1). Fujifilm X100F The general performance of the camera has been improved. The number of autofocus points increased from 49 to 91. It also has a zone system and tracking functions known from the X-T and X-Pro models. 2). Fujifilm X100F A hybrid viewfinder has also undergone some changes. As in the case of the X100T model, we have an "Electronic Rangefinder" mode, in which in the bottom right-hand corner a frame with an image preview from the electronic viewfinder appears. The changes also involve the body. In the new model we have a joystick with the autofocus points selection and an ISO dial connected with a shutter speed dial. 3). Fujifilm X100F The back panel has also got through certain changes. All buttons are now on the right side, which is to enhance the ergonomy of the device. 4). Fujifilm X100F When it comes to the lens, we still have a construction of a 35mm equivalent and a f/2 lens, and it is still a validated 8-element construction. The camera is also equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi and an electronic shutter function. Unfortunately, the producer didn't think about equipping the camera with seals and a more modern connector than USB 2.0. 5). Fujifilm X100F The camera will be on sale in the middle of February and it will cost $1299. It will be available in two color versions: silver and black.

    Fujifilm X-T20 Announcement

    Fujifilm X-T20 is a smaller equivalent of the professional X-T2 model. The camera has inherited nearly whole specification from its more professional model, and in some aspects it even surpasses it. In the X-T20 model we can find a 24.3 megapixel APS-C sensor, without a low pass filter. The sensor is supported by the X-Processor Pro image processor, thanks to which we can take photos with the maximum speed of 8fps with 200-12.800 sensitivity. The filmmaking lovers will also be satisfied. The new camera is able to record videos in 4K (30fps, 100MB/s). The camera is also equipped with a microphone connector and a recorded material can be recorded via external recorders, thanks to a HDMI connector. 1). Fujifilm X-T20 Fujifilm X-T20 is also equipped with a hybrid autofocus system with 91 autofocus points, which can be extended to 325 points. Similarly to the X-T2 version, we also have a possibility of precise regulation of the autofocus regarding the speed and precision of tracking. 2). Fujifilm X-T20 The camera is also equipped with with a new touch screen, with a significantly higher resolution of 1.040.000 points. Even the most professional models, such as X-T2 or X-Pro 2, do not have this function yet. 3). Fujifilm X-T20 When it comes to the camera's housing, Fujifilm X-T20 didn't undergo almost any changes. We still have a compact housing stylised as a retro camera. Unfortunately, the body, as in the case of the previous model, is not sealed. 4). Fujifilm X-T20 Fujifilm X-T20 has a pop-up flash and Wi-Fi connectivity. It will be available in two color versions – silver and black. 5). Fujifilm X-T20 - Silver Edition It will be on sale around February 2017, and it will cost $899 for a body.
