Fujifilm X20 with X-Trans CMOS II sensor

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% compared to conventional digital cameras in the category.

Fujifilm X20 features

The Fujifilm X20 now features built-in phase detection that achieves the world's fastest auto focus speed in its class as fast as 0.06 seconds, a fast start-up time of only 0.5 seconds, a shutter time lag of 0.01 seconds and a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds. The Fujifilm X20 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.

Fujinon 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 Fujinon zoom lens also uses Fujinon's proprietary HT-EBC coating to effectively control flare and ghosting from appearing on images for consistent image clarity. The Fujifilm X20 digital camera 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.

Digital Trans Panel

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.

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 Fujifilm X20 camera's full HD 1080p video up to 60fps in a high-bit rate for smooth movie capture with reduced noise and sharp clarity.

The Fujifilm X20 is manufactured from a strong, yet lightweight, 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.
