By implementing Fujifilm’s latest X-Processor Pro imaging engine, the X-T20 springs into life slightly faster (0.4secs) with a minimal shutter lag of just 0.05sec. You might think the continuous shooting speed has also increased, but it continues to rattle out a burst at 8fps with continuous autofocus during shooting the same as the Fujifilm X-T10.
We didn’t foresee Fujifilm employing the AF-C custom settings into their junior X-T series model quite so soon, however this is good news for those already shooting with an X-T2, who might possibly look at the X-T20 as a backup body.
Added to this, the X-T20 introduces five custom AF-C modes to enhance focus tracking when shooting moving subjects, just like the ones we’ve witnessed before on the Fujifilm X-T2.
By turning the touch screen setting on you’re given the option to control the position of the focus point or fire the shutter in shooting mode, and by using finger gestures much like you would on a Smartphone or tablet, you can view and enlarge images easily in playback mode.
Other features include built-in Wi-fi, Full HD and 4K video (100Mbps), a silent electronic shutter capable of exposures up to 1/32,000sec, digital split screen focus assist as well as the full suite of film simulation modes that can now be used when shooting stills and recording video.
The X-T20’s autofocus system has been brought bang up to date with a larger phase detection AF area and updated algorithm delivering an ultra-fast AF speed of 0.06sec. The number of focusing points has been dramatically expanded from 49 in the X-T10 to 91 points – expandable to 325 – with the central area of 49 points using phase-detection AF pixels.
