Fujifilm reveals its new compact camera, the X20. Available in an all-black and a two-tone black and silver model, the camera features a new 12 megapixel 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor, EXR Processor II, and a newly-developed Advanced Optical Viewfinder. The new Digital Trans Panel in the viewfinder displays shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focusing area and other shooting information even under low light. The Optical Viewfinder syncs with the zoom lens, allowing users to compose shots even when the focal length is constantly changing.
Another feature of the new X-Trans CMOS II sensor is the built-in Phase Detection pixels which allow the X20 to auto-focus in as little as 0.06 seconds. Other notable speed stats include an average start-up time of around 0.5 seconds, a shutter time lag of about 0.01 seconds, and a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds, making it suitable for shooting on the go. In addition to versatility, these newly developed features allow the X20 to capture images with up to a 20% higher resolution with 30% less noise. Expect the Fujifilm X20 to hit retailers soon.
