Fujifilm will announce the X-T20 mirrorless camera alongside the GFX 50S medium format camera on January 19. In the meantime, here are some of its specifications!
The Consumer Electronics Show 2017 has not been what we expected. A lot more products, as well as more interesting ones, should have been launched during the event. However, it seems like digital imaging companies prefer to hold their own conferences for big announcements.
A major event will take place on January 19, as Fujifilm will introduce multiple new products. From what we know, the GFX 50S medium format camera, whose development was confirmed at Photokina 2016, will finally get a proper unveiling alongside multiple lenses.
Nevertheless, the GFX 50S will not be alone. Trusted sources have revealed that the Fujifilm X-T20 is real and that it will replace the X-T10. Everything will be confirmed next week, but here is what we have learned before the announcement.
Fujifilm X-T20 will become official on January 19
Fuji’s X-T10 was released on the market in order to be a cheaper version of the high-end X-T1. It is not a weathersealed camera, but its design is inspired by this product, so this is why it is often compared to the X-T1.
Now that the X-T2 is here, while the X-T10 is approaching its second anniversary, it is time for the Fujifilm X-T20 to become official. Gossip talks coming from reliable insiders are stating that the product will make its first public appearance on January 19.
There are no price details available at this point, albeit we are not expecting the new version to be much cheaper or expensive than its predecessor. The launch price of the X-T10 was set at around $800 for the body-only version. Either way, we will find out its price within 10 days.
Fuji will add a touchscreen to this cheaper X-T2-like camera
Meanwhile, some of the camera’s specifications have made their way onto the web. By all accounts, the Fujifilm X-T20 will feature that new 24-megapixel sensor found in the company’s latest cameras along with the X-Processor Pro engine.
As expected, it will not be weathersealed and will not record videos at 4K resolution. Its continuous shooting mode will not be as quick as the one in the X-T2 and it will have only one memory card slot.
It appears that there will be no joystick on the back. Thankfully, the tilting display is now a touchscreen, allowing users to control the camera in an easier manner. All of these design choices have been made in order to reduce the costs. We will see how it fares against the X-T2 soon, meaning that you must keep an eye on Camyx.
