About the Fujifilm X-T20 (no lens included)
An all-around great X Series shooter
An all-around great X Series shooter
I love how versatile Fujifilm cameras are. The X-T20 is a dream camera that blends the latest mirrorless technology with retro-style looks and functionality. It shares a lot of cutting-edge features with Fujifilm's flagship X-T2, but in a more compact, budget-friendly package.
Whether you prefer manual shooting or letting the camera take over, using the viewfinder or tapping on the LCD screen to snap the shutter, shooting with the X-T20 is intuitive and — most importantly — fun.
Outstanding performance for stills and video
The X-T20's 24.3-megapixel APS-C sized sensor and high-speed processing engine combine to give your photos and videos exceptional color reproduction with high ISO sensitivity and low noise. Video can be output through HDMI while recording, so you can simultaneously check footage on the LCD or viewfinder and an external monitor. A 2.5mm microphone input lets you add an external mic so you can capture high-quality audio to match the 4K video quality.
Experience the real joy in making photographs
The more in-tune you feel with your camera, the better your photos and videos will be. Personally, I want my camera to feel like an extension of my own eye. And I find Fujifilm cameras offer a seamless, intuitive experience in this regard — more so even than some of the higher-end DSLRs I've tried. The X-T20's engraved metal dials make it easy to adjust settings without having to take your eye off the scene. Its bright OLED electronic viewfinder can display all your settings and show you what your final image will look like, so you can stay focused on your subject.
If you're not like me, and you prefer framing your shots on the back of your camera — and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that approach, by the way — the X-T20's tilting touchscreen offers an equally intuitive experience, similar to shooting with a phone camera.
Awesome color reproduction
As a renowned manufacturer of color and black-and-white films for over 80 years, the folks at Fujifilm have a deep understanding of the role color plays in creating memorable photos. The XT-20's 15 different film simulation modes — including the popular Provia and Velvia film types — let you use different color tones and gradations to add texture, depth, and atmosphere to your photos and videos.
An advanced autofocus system
The XT-20's high-speed processing power gives it improved autofocus performance over previous X Series models. For subjects on the move, AF-C Custom settings let you optimize autofocus according to the type of movement for extra-precise tracking.

Overview: The Fujifilm X-T20 is part of the X-series interchangeable lens digital cameras. It has the Fujifilm X-mount, and is compatible with XF-series lenses. No lens is included in this "body only" kit.
Compatible Lenses: The X-T20 is compatible with Fujinon XF prime lenses (23mm, 35mm, 50mm, 90mm) which offer precise control over depth-of-field and excellent out-of-focus bokeh, due to the design of the molded aperture diaphragm blades. In addition, Fujinon XF zoom lenses (16-55mm, 18-135mm, 50-140mm, 100-400mm) provide crystal clear images near and far. The XF-series lenses feature special weather sealing to make them water- and dust-resistant.
3" LCD Monitor: The X-T20 has a 3" color LCD monitor with 1.04-million dots and approximately 100% horizontal and vertical coverage in the shooting mode. The monitor features 3-way tilting for better visibility while framing high-angle or low-angle shots from either landscape and portrait orientation. You can vary the amount of information displayed on the monitor from a full info display to "Information Off".
0.39" OLED Viewfinder: The camera is equipped with a 0.39" Organic LED (OLED) viewfinder with 2.36-million dots and a magnification ratio of 0.62x. It has a horizontal viewing angle of 25°. An eye sensor on the viewfinder automatically turns on the viewfinder and turns off the LCD monitor when you bring the camera up to your eye, and turns it off when you take it away. The viewfinder has a diopter correction dial that allows you to adjust the strength of the viewfinder to your eyesight.
Image Sensor/Processor: The X-T20 features the new 23.5mm x 15.6mm APS-C format, X-Trans CMOS III image sensor with 24.3-million effective pixels. It has a highly random pixel array that effectively reduces moiré and false colors without using an optical low-pass filter. The new sensor delivers faster high-speed continuous shooting and high-precision AF tracking. The new X-Processor Pro image processor is about four times faster than the previous model, offering increased buffer memory for faster response and shorter delays between shots.
Recording Media: Still images and movies can be recorded onto optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards, including ultra-high-speed UHS-II format SD cards. Cards with a UHS speed class of 3 or better are recommended for recording movies. No memory cards are included with the camera.
Still Image Quality: The X-T20 records still images in JPEG format in 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine or Normal). In addition, RAW images can be recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor. RAW format images can be processed on a computer using the downloadable RAW File Converter application software, or converted to JPEG in the camera. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the same time, with separate RAW and JPEG files recorded and stored.

White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can select Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, Incandescent light, and Underwater (requires waterproof case). In addition, you can measure for a white balance value or display and select from a list of color temperatures.
Film Simulation: The X-T20 can simulate the effects of different kinds of film, including black-and-white. You can select one of the following options:
- Provia/Standard: standard color reproduction
- Velvia/Vivid: a high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited for nature photos
- Astia/Soft: a soft-toned palette of less-saturated colors
- Classic Chrome: soft color and enhanced shadow contrast for a calm look.
- Pro Negative Std: a soft-toned palette. The range of hues available for skin tones is enhanced; a good choice for studio portraits.
- Pro Negative Hi: offers slightly more contrast than Pro Negative Std, making it ideal for outdoor portraits.
- Acros: for taking black-and-white photos with rich gradation and outstanding sharpness.
- Monochrome: standard black-and-white
- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Note: Acros and Monochrome are also available with yellow (Ye), red (R), and green (G) filters, which deepen shades of gray corresponding to the selected color.
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image, you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader color rendition of Adobe RGB (for commercial printing).
Exposure Compensation: Using the dedicated Exposure Compensation dial on the top of the camera, you can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure a total of 19 steps from -3.0 to +3.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps. When the dial is set to Custom (C), you can adjust the Exposure Compensation from -5.0 to +5.0 EV using the front command dial.
Drive Dial: The X-T20 has a top-mounted Drive Dial that give you quick and easy access to the various Drive Modes. By turning the dial, you can choose from: Movie, Bracketing (1&2), Burst (High or Low Speed), Single Frame, Advanced Filter (1&2), Multiple Exposure, and Panorama.
Bracketing: You can take a series of photos with varying settings for each picture. Bracketing options include:
- AE: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take multiple shots, one using the metered value for exposure, some overexposed by the selected amount (+/- 2 EV in 1/3 EV steps), and some underexposed by the same amount.
- ISO: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take multiple shots, one using the current sensitivity setting, some with the sensitivity raised by the selected amount (1/3, 2/3, 1 EV), and the others with the sensitivity lowered.
- Film Simulation: Each time the shutter is released, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with the three film simulation settings selected.
- Dynamic Range: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take three shots, each with different dynamic ranges: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
- White Balance: After selecting a bracketing amount (+/-1, +/-2, +/-3), the camera takes one shot and processes it to create three copies: one at the current white balance setting, one with the fine tuning increased by the selected amount, and another with the fine tuning decreased by the selected amount.
Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of pictures using the Continuous Shooting mode. At the High Speed setting, the camera can take up to 42 pictures at 14 frames per second (electronic shutter), 50 pictures at 11 fps (electronic shutter), or 53 frames at 8 fps (mechanical shutter). At Low Speed, the camera can take up to 56 pictures at approximately 5 fps, 58 frames at 4 fps, or 62 frames at 3 fps. The frame rate and number of frames per burst may vary depending on the type of memory card used. Continuous Shooting results are lower when shooting RAW photos.
Multiple Exposures: You can create a photograph that combines two exposures. After the first shot is taken, it will be shown superimposed on the view through the lens, and you will be prompted to take the second shot.
Advanced Filter Options: You can select from the following filters: Toy Camera, Miniature, Pop Color, High-Key, Low-Key, Dynamic Tone, Soft Focus, and Partial Color (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple).
Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second or 2-second self timer. The 10 second self timer is recommended for self portraits, while the 2-second self timer is used to reduce blur caused by the camera moving when the shutter button is pressed.
Remote Release: You can shoot images using the optional RR-90 Remote Release, which plugs into the Micro-B USB connector. The RR-90 can be used to take photos when the camera is on a tripod or for long time-exposures. In addition, you can use a standard cable release attached to the threaded receptacle on the shutter release button.
Focus Modes: The camera lets you choose how the camera focuses. Using the rotary control on the front of the camera, you can select Single AF, Continuous AF, or Manual Focus.
Focus Area: The X-T20 lets you select the focus area, and number of focus points available when in manual focus or Single AF. You can choose from 91 points (arranged in a 7 x 13 point grid) or 325 (arranged in a 13 x 25 point grid).
Face Detection/Eye Detection: The camera lets you choose face detection to automatically detect human faces, or eye detection to automatically detect and accurately focus on human eyes for successful portraits with a shallow depth of field. You can even define the area of priority focus, including right or left eye, or the eye closer to the camera.
Flash Modes: The X-T20 has a pop-up built-in flash that can be raised . Optional external flash units (EF-20, EF-42, EF-X20) can be used for additional lighting at night or indoors under low light. Red-eye removal minimizes the "red-eye" effect, and is available for each flash mode. You can choose a flash mode for P, S, A, and M shooting modes: Flash Auto, TTL Flash Standard, Slow Sync (1st or 2nd Curtain), Manual Flash, Commander, and Off.
Light Metering: The X-T20 uses 256-segment, TTL (through-the-lens) metering, where the camera automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimum exposure. Using the ring surrounding the shutter speed dial, you can select from three metering options: Multi, Spot, Center-Weighted, or Average.
Viewing Images: Images can be played back one-at-a-time or in two multi-frame views of a 9-image grid (3 x 3) and a 100-image grid (10 x 10) of micro-thumbnails.
Playback Zoom/Cropping: You can enlarge a still image in the monitor according to the image quality (size). After you have zoomed in and scrolled the picture to the desired composition, you can create a cropped image of a picture. Copies will have an aspect ratio of 3:2, and will be saved as a separate file.
Resize: To create a small copy of a picture, you can select "Resize" from the menu. The new images vary in size with the original image.
