Fujifilm X-T20 Mirrorless Camera Review

Like the X-T10, the X-T20 is a versatile and capable mirrorless camera directed at hobbyists and keen amateurs. That said, even professionals would love this camera’s capabilities when it comes to studio and portrait photography. The Fuji X-T20 mirrorless camera is remarkably lightweight and compact. In combination with a prime lens, for example the new Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR, it is the ideal everyday companion.

The controls on the Fuji X-T20 are very intuitive to use and well placed. Offering quite a few of the advantages the X-T2 has in store, the X-T20 produces high-quality images and is equipped with lots of the Fujifilm X features I love very much and don’t want to miss out on. Of course, there is the tiltable display, which I now use most of the time. The highly acclaimed film simulations (my favourites are Astia and Chrome) make sure you are able to produce high-end results in camera. With the capability to shoot 4K video, this camera is a gem of a tool.

Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR Lens Review

I was also lucky enough to test the new Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR lens. With a focal length equivalent of 76mm and a minimum aperture of f/2, this lens is a wonderful portrait lens, which creates a beautiful bokeh. The autofocus is fast and silent. It is compact and lightweight and therefore (together with the Fujifilm X-T20 mirrorless camera) a pleasure to carry with me wherever I go.
