Fujifilm has recently unveiled the highly anticipated X-S20 camera, surpassing its predecessor with impressive performance enhancements. This new addition to Fujifilm’s lineup is poised to be a content creator’s dream, offering premium image quality and advanced portability for photographers and videographers alike.
The X-S20 retains the fourth-generation X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor found in the Fujifilm X-S10, which boasts 26 megapixels and a native ISO range of 160-12,800 (expandable to 80-51,200). However, the real game-changer lies in the inclusion of the powerful X Processor 5, previously featured in the Fujifilm X-H2S camera. The new processor elevates the X-S20’s capabilities, allowing for over 1,000 JPEG or compressed RAW images to be captured using the mechanical shutter, a significant improvement from its predecessor.
Autofocus capabilities have also received a boost with the introduction of AI-powered subject detection. The X-S20 can automatically track various subjects such as humans, animals, vehicles, and even drones. Additionally, the camera can seamlessly switch between Fujifilm’s popular Film Simulations in “Auto” mode.
In terms of design and handling, the X-S20 maintains the familiar form factor while incorporating minor improvements for user comfort. The camera features an enlarged grip to accommodate a higher-capacity battery, doubling the battery life compared to the X-S10. The X-S20 also offers a larger EVF with increased magnification and an improved rear display.
Fujifilm has recognized the growing demand for video capabilities and has delivered with the X-S20. It can record high-quality video at resolutions up to 6.2K, offering various recording modes and supporting 12-bit RAW output over HDMI. The camera even includes a dedicated Vlog mode for vlogging-specific functions. The Fujifilm X-S20 will hit the market around June 29th, priced at $1,300. The camera can now be pre-ordered here.
