FUJIFILM X20 digital camera that improves on the highly-acclaimed FUJIFILM X10 with an advanced 12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and the EXR Processor II to deliver the world's fastest autofocus speed of up to 0.06 seconds. The X20 also receives a newly-developed, advanced optical viewfinder with a Digital Trans Panel that displays critical imaging information syncing perfectly with the manual zoom lens.
The X20 achieves improvements in reduced noise, as well as higher resolution thanks to its new X-Trans CMOS II Sensor. By combining the X-Trans filter array and removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) the X20 delivers:
• 30% better noise reduction*2 compared to the FUJIFILM X10
• 20% higher image resolution over the FUJIFILM X10
Advanced X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and EXR Processor II
The FUJIFILM X20 features a newly-developed 12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II sensor with a highly randomized and unique color filter array that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter that produces beautiful, high resolution images with edge to edge clarity.
The 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II sensor in the X20 achieves excellent sensitivity and is coupled with the advanced signal processing of the EXR Processor II to reduce noise by more than 30%*2 compared to conventional digital cameras in the category.
Fastest Autofocus in Class
The FUJIFILM X20 now features built-in phase detection that achieves the world's fast est auto focus speed in its class as fast as 0.06 seconds*3, a fast start-up time of only 0.5 seconds*4, a shutter time lag of 0.01 seconds and a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds. It also features an Intelligent Hybrid Autofocus system that switches between phase and contrast detection, depending on the subject or scene, to achieve the best balance between speed and focus precision.
Using its new Focus Peaking function, the X20 highlights high contrast areas of subjects for precise focusing while using manual focus mode, so that users can achieve perfect focus every time.
High Precision F2.0-2.8 4x Manual Zoom Lens
The FUJIFILM X20 uses the premium FUJINON F2.0-2.8 4x manual zoom lens that is made up of 11 glass elements in 9 groups, including 3 double-sided aspherical elements and 2 extra-low dispersion elements. The lens also uses FUJINON's proprietary HT-EBC coating to effectively control flare and ghosting from appearing on images for consistent image clarity.
The X20 has a smooth optical 4x manual zoom lens barrel that allows users to determine precise composition quickly. And in Super Macro mode, users can get as close as 0.39" from a subject, for stunning close-up shots.
The X20 also uses a unique image stabilization mechanism that shifts 5 lens elements to compensate for camera shake by up to 4 stops, while also effectively preventing motion blur and reducing vignetting and loss of image resolution that usuall y occurs during camera shake.
The FUJIFILM X20 uses a 7 diaphragm blade system that enables users to create a beautiful soft "bokeh" effect to make subjects stand out against a soft background.
Advanced Digital Trans Panel Optical Viewfinder
The FUJIFILM X20 has a bright optical viewfinder that features a newly-developed Digital Trans Panel that clearly displays shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focusing area and other shooting information. The X20's advanced viewfinder also synchronizes with the 4x manual zoom lens so that users can accurately compose shots using the viewfinder even when the focal length is constantly changing. The Digital Trans Panel automatically switches the color of information in the shooting frame according to the scene and shooting conditions. Normally displayed in black, shooting information is automatically displayed by green LEDs for enhanced visibility in especially dark scenes.
Film Simulation Modes and Artistic Filters
To give users even more creative possibilities, the X20 also features Fujifilm's proprietary Film Simulation mode which includes ten film simulation options that replicate the results achieved by Fujifilm color reversal films (Velvia / PROVIA / ASTIA) and professional color negative films (PRO Neg. Std / PRO Neg. Hi), along with three B/W filter effects (Ye filter, R filter and G filter).
The X20 also has Advanced Filter functions for additional artistic functionality, including Pop Color, Toy Camera, Miniature, Dynamic Tone, Partial Color, Soft Focus, High Key and Low Key. Users can also choose a separate Multiple Exposure function that combines two separate subjects into one photo, perfect for adding people into photos that they had missed.
A new Movie Scene Recognition feature automatically recognizes six types of scenes and optimizes settings for sharp results in a variety of shooting conditions. Additionally, the X20's Intelligent Hybrid AF feature operates during the X20's full HD 1080p video up to 60fps in a high-bit rate for smooth movie capture with reduced noise and sharp clarity.
Sharp LCD Screen and "Q" Menu System
Composing and viewing images on the FUJIFILM X20's LCD screen is easy and clear thanks to its high-contrast, 460k dot, 2.8" premium screen that has a wide viewing-angle and an enhanced GUI menu system.
The menu system in the X20 receives Fujifilm's latest Q "Quick" button feature that allows users to quickly call up a wide-range of frequently-used settings, and the programmable Fn (Function) button allows users to assign commonly-used functions at the touch of a button
The X20 also features an Advanced SR Auto mode, which detects not only the main subject but also whether it is moving or stationary to automatically optimize the focus, exposure, ISO and other settings.
Design and Build Quality
The FUJIFILM X20 is manufactured from a strong, yet lightweigh t, die-cast magnesium alloy, and the upper controls and camera base are superbly designed and add a sense of style and elegance. The mode dial and zoom ring have been ergonomically placed and precision-milled from solid aluminum for outstanding usability.
The Fujifilm X20 is commonly used for Family photos, Landscape/scenery, Low light, Macro photography, Travel, Weddings and more.The Fujifilm X20 is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Photo enthusiast, Pro photographer among others.The Fujifilm X20 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Fujifilm X20: Compact, Easy to use, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good image quality, Good in low light, Great resolution, Image stabilization, Large clear LCD, Short lag time and Zoom range/performance.
