MirrorLessons: Fujifilm X-T20 Fast 5 Review

Most photographers could probably produce all of their work on one or two Fujifilm X-T20s because they are basicly mini Fujifilm X-T2s. Features like weather sealing, dual SD card slots, and customizable AF are probably the most important features missing from the X-T20 and many photographers today use Sony cameras that do not have any of those but cost more money and do not perform nearly as well. The X-T20 also makes a great 2nd camera for those that already own an X-T2, but don’t want to purchase a 2nd X-T2. Mirrorlessons cover the following details in their brief review:

  • Shares same sensor and AF system as X-T2
  • Uses latest 24MP X-Trans Sensor
  • Good image quality up to 12,800
  • Less purple flair and green artifacts than X-T2
  • When using JPEG’s less green artifacts when setting WB manually
  • Excellent single point AF
  • Shoot up to 8fps mechanical shutter and 14fps electronic shutter
  • Battery life is good, but better if you are not in performance mode
  • Designed to be easy to use
  • Very small and light, which might make it too small for big hands
  • No weather sealing
  • The tilting touch screen is precise and responsive
  • The EVF is very good, but smaller than X-T1 and X-T2
  • 1080p video is very good, but 4k video is not very good
  • 4k video is limited to 10 min and 1080p is limited to 15 min

Mirrorlessons seems to be generally impressed with the amount of camera you get for the money. It seems you really can’t go wrong with cameras produced for this camera generation from Fujifilm.
