Inputs and Outputs Notes
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,
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,
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.
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
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.

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
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
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
