Camera Labs

  • Summary: The Fujifilm X20 is an advanced compact with a larger sensor than a typical point-and-shoot camera, a built-in advanced optical viewfinder and a 4x zoom lens. It replaces the X10, substituting the older model's EXR sensor with a 12 Megapixel X-Trans sensor of the same architecture used in the X-Series mirrorless compact system cameras and the high-end fixed-lens compact, the X100S.
  • Pros: 2/3 inch X-Trans sensor., Fast hybrid AF with on-sensor phase detect points., Advanced optical viewfinder with LCD overlay., 360 degree Motion Panorama mode., Focus peaking.
  • Cons: Poor video performance., 85% optical viewfinder coverage., No Wifi.

Fujifilm X20 finds its niche

CNET
15 May 2013
  • Summary: The Fujifiilm X20 is a great choice for people looking for a well-designed photographer's camera, but the basic feature set and disappointing video might not be for everyone.
  • Pros: A new sensor lets the Fujifilm X20 deliver better photo quality than its predecessor, and tweaks to the design improve the shooting experience significantly.
  • Cons: The lens-twist-to-turn-on is getting old fast, and the feature set provides just the basics. Plus the video quality disappoints.

  • Summary: The X20 boasts to be a lot more than its predecessor claimed to be, packing a brand spankin' new BSI sensor and image processor. It addressed the many shortcomings the previous model had, including making that optical viewfinder useful by putting a digital information overlay in there. But does it seriously outperform its predecessor? But more importantly, does it justify spending the extra money over its competitors? We find out.
  • Pros: Sharp images thanks to no optical low pass filter, Fast f/2.0-2.8 lens, Speedy and accurate AF, Short startup times
  • Cons: ISO 3200 and higher images are not so great at handling noise, Movie mode has no manual control, Audio recording barely average

Fuji X20

  • Conclusion: The Fuji X20 might be the little brother of the award-winning X100s , but we wouldn't describe its performance as "little." The X20 has a fantastic build, classic styling, a sharp and versatile lens, plus is a smaller package than the X100s. We loved the feel, but overall the operation was a bit more cumbersome than the Editor's Choice RX 100 .

Fujifilm X20 review

What Digital Camera
24 April 2013
  • Summary: Despite some minor issues with the viewfinder, noise reduction and a somewhat untrustworthy exposure compensation dial, the Fujifilm X20 is clearly more than just a minor upgrade to the Fujifilm X10 . With its dependable build quality, impressive AF, excellent resolution and generally pleasing images, it's a welcome addition to an admittedly crowded market.

Fujifilm X20

Steve's Digicams
19 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The Fujifilm X20 is the successor to the X10 released last year. Fully upgraded with the new X-Trans CMOS II image sensor and redesigned optical view finder, the X20 has increased performance and image quality over the X10. The 4x optical zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.0-2.8 and great body styling have been carried over from before. In fact, if not for the model being listed on the camera, you would not be able to tell them apart just from looking at them.
