Strolling through La Rambla in the heart of Barcelona this month, I saw and heard the full kaleidoscope of human cultures around me, but something wasn’t quite right. There was an anomaly about the tourists surrounding me. Not one of them was using, wearing, or carrying a camera. I was, in fact, the sole person with a dedicated camera in hand.
Smartphone cameras have grown so ubiquitous and competent that, even on an evening outing in a city center, most people now trust them to handle their photography needs. I would normally be one of those phone-only casual tourists, but on this occasion I was reviewing the Fujifilm X-T20 camera and was duty-bound to use it. I could anticipate getting better results than from my smartphone, of course, but what I didn’t expect was that the X-T20 would rekindle my love for this old-fashioned method of taking photos.
The Fujifilm X-T20 is everything that is good about technology. It’s a throwback to the days of necessarily rugged metal bodies, optical viewfinders, and entirely physical control schemes replete with satisfying clicks and clunks from mechanical switches and dials. But it elevates those laudable aspects of old-timey film cameras with judicious use of modern technology, including an electronic viewfinder, the same 24-megapixel APS-C sensor as inside the higher-end Fujifilm X-Pro2 and X-T2, and a reliable autofocus system that’s also very amenable to manual adjustment.
At $899 without any lenses included, the X-T20 is certainly a considered purchase for any newcomers to Fujifilm’s wares. I tested it with a set of prime lenses that would multiply its price, but you don’t have to go that far right away. The X-T20 contains Fujifilm’s best imaging processing to date — hardware that’d usually cost much more — and it marks an understandably high entry point into the company’s excellent lens ecosystem. You can have better and you can have cheaper, but this particular Fujifilm camera has proven the Goldilocks ideal for me.Read More...
