The Fujifilm X-T20 is a mirrorless single-lens reflex camera manufactured by Fujifilm. It is placed above the X-E2S and below the X-T2. The Fujifilm X-T20 is the successor to the X-T10 and comes with a plethora of additional capabilities. Some of these features include Fujifilm’s most recent 24MP CMOS sensor and image processor, quicker burst shooting, an enhanced focusing system, and the ability to record 4K video. The X-T2 was a camera that we assessed the previous year and gave a Gold Award for; this model is essentially a smaller and less costly “little brother” version of that model.

The Fujifilm X-T20 operates in a market that is crowded with rivalry from both’mirrored’ (DSLR) and mirrorless cameras. Mirrorless digital single-lens reflex cameras, such as the Sony a6300, Panasonic GX850, and Olympus E-M5 II, and DSLRs in the midrange, such as the Nikon D5600 and the Canon EOS 77D, are some of the options that prospective purchasers will likely have to consider.
The X-T20 is distinguished less by one or two particular specifications than by its comprehensive nature. In spite of this, the 24MP sensor found in the X-Pro2 and X-T2 has already demonstrated its value, and the AF system has also been improved in a beneficial way. Even if the touch features on the tilting LCD are restricted, using the electronic viewfinder (EVF) is a delight. Since the X-T10, there has not been any modification to the burst rate; nevertheless, the buffer size has been significantly increased. The X-T20 now boasts support for 4K video, which helps it compete on an even playing field with the most advanced models in its class.
And let’s not forget the camera’s design, which has been a signature feature of Fujifilm’s X-series cameras over the years. Even after all these years, the traditional DSLR-style design still looks fresh (at least to this reviewer), and the build quality is quite high for a camera that costs $900.
There is plenty to discuss before we actually go into the X-T20 in any greater detail. The X-T20 is very competitive with its contemporaries, performing at times on par with the other cameras and at other times outperforming them. The one area in which it is lacking is in its electronic viewfinder, which is smaller than the ones found on the other two mirrorless cameras (albeit it is larger than the one found on the EOS 77D). This is the only area in which it is inferior to the competition. It is not weather-sealed like the a6300 and E-M5 II, so if you want that feature on a Fujifilm camera, you will need to go up to the X-T2, which is nearly twice as expensive as this model.

The Fujifilm X-T20 is a mirrorless camera that has an exceptionally well-designed body and is a delight to operate. It has a large number of direct controls, an electronic viewfinder with a high resolution, fast performance, and superior image quality. The continuous autofocus technology of the X-T20 can often struggle in low light, and subject tracking can be erratic. The quality of 4K footage isn’t excellent, and there aren’t many capture controls to choose from. In spite of this, the Fujifilm X-T20 is an excellent mirrorless camera that also offers an excellent value.
