Fujifilm X-T20: Mirrorless powerhouse
Overview and design
The Fujifilm X-T20 is probably one of the closest things consumers can have for them to step up their photography game as it provides more options that enable greater control of everything when it comes to capturing moments.
The X-T20 features a design that is typical of an old-school camera, and may have been built from magnesium alloy, but weighs less than its superior predecessors such as the X-T2. Meaning, it can fit into a much smaller bag (heck, even in the pockets of a smaller knapsack) and carry that one without worries.
With its ISO control settings ranging from the usual 100 to a whopping 51200, Fujifilm’s X-T20 enables photography enthusiasts, like yours truly, to explore all the possibilities. It certainly helped that this camera also enables users to capture moments in various conditions, with its mechanical shutter speed dial ranging from the slowest 30 seconds to the fastest 1/4000 seconds, plus an exposure dial that enables you to tweak any settings with much ease. It certainly helps that its electronic viewfinder helps you in seeing your preferred adjustments as you made it. At least, those two just spared you from doing the usual selection from the menu without guessing on the preview. Plus, its advanced automatic focus system involves using your touchscreen for one, alternating to your kit lens which is an added ease for most of the time.
I also loved its sensors when it comes to selecting through your eye on either electronic viewfinder or on the LCD screen. Seems obvious that I’m a fan of that tiny peeping hole, eh?
And of course, through the X-Trans color filter inside its 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, the X-T20 promises to bring colors into its liveliest state, and I can barely attest to this – a true sign of what Fujifilm cameras are all about and why are they made. It may neither be smooth nor crisp, but most details are present, plus it gave me much ease of the editing itself.
There is a reason the X-T20 has been one of the superior mirrorless cameras at the moment. However, by capturing only 350 frames in a single charge, battery issue is something to be concerned with.

With all these functions plus the usual retro-design and the fact that this brand is hot on its mirrorless revolution, it is undeniable that Fujifilm has been taking the camera business by storm with its own brand which easily translates into outstanding visuals.
In the Philippines, the Fujifilm X-T20 is available for the price starting at PhP 50,990 (body only).
