Fujifilm X-T20 Review

Fujifilm X-T20 Review

The Fujifilm X-T20 is Fujifilm’s mid-range model, designed to appeal to ambitious amateur photographers with a good price-performance ratio. The system camera is equipped with a lot of technology from its larger sister model X-T2, such as the 24-megapixel image sensor, which can also record 4K videos. The retro housing with the classic operating concept with manual exposure wheel reminds of the “good old days”, while the camera wants to deliver first-class, modern digital images. Our test shows whether the Fujifilm X-T20 succeeds in this.

We have also a review of the X-T30 in this article.


The Fujifilm X-T20 is Fujifilm’s price-performance model and offers a lot of technology from the larger X-T2, such as the 4K video function or the fast autofocus.

Pros And Cons Of The Fujifilm X-T20


  • High-quality housing
  • Very good image quality up to ISO 1.600
  • High-resolution viewfinder and flexible folding touch screen
  • Extensive equipment
  • A direct user interface with many customizable key functions

  • Lean dynamic range (in JPEG)

Ergonomics And Workmanship

The Fujifilm X-T20 comes in a similar retro design to its bigger sister X-T2. However, the Fujifilm X-T20 is more compact, measures less than twelve centimeters in width, is just over eight centimeters high, and a good four centimeters deep.

The housing of the ready-to-operate system camera, which weighs less than 400 grams, consists of a robust and cleanly processed metal-plastic mix. It is optionally available in black or silver-black, but unlike the X-T2 is not sealed against dust and splash water.

The lid and the base plate of our test model Silver are made of a light alloy. The plastic housing in between is generously covered with a grained rubber, which is very non-slip and gives the user the necessary grip.

The Fujifilm X-T20, on the other hand, does not have a pronounced handle, but the small grip bar gives the middle finger and the ring finger some grip. On the back, there is a thumb recess as a counterweight. If the handle is too thin for you, you can enlarge it with the optional MHG-XT10 screw-in handle already available for the X-T10.

This fixes another shortcoming of the case: The tripod thread on the underside sits far outside the optical axis and also far too close to the battery and memory card compartment so that it is blocked when a tripod exchange plate is used. The optional handle provides free access and an Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount.

The operating concept of the Fujifilm X-T20 is also based on classic models. Almost all XF lenses have an aperture ring, the exposure time is set via a wheel on top of the camera. Only one ISO wheel is missing from the Fujifilm X-T20.

Thanks to two modern setting wheels, the exposure times can also be fine-tuned on request, or the exposure time wheel can be set to T and one of the setting wheels can now be used. These cover several functions depending on the mode, the changeover takes place by pressing the wheel. Exactly here lies a small ergonomic problem: The multifunction wheels for thumb and forefinger are not very handy and look only slightly out of the case. Depending on how smooth your fingers are, you may have trouble turning the wheel without squeezing it. On our specimen, the rear wheel ran a bit lighter, which made it easier to operate than the front wheel.

A separate wheel is available for the exposure correction, which is intentionally very stiff and therefore hardly adjusts unintentionally. An additional dial is located to the left of the flash/viewfinder jack and controls the shooting mode (single shot, continuous advance, video, panorama, bracketing, etc.).

In addition to the unusually large number of control wheels in this class (the camera costs almost 900 dollars without lens), there are also a lot of buttons. There is both an AE-L and an AF-L button, as well as a function button and a four-way cross that can be freely assigned in the functions. A total of seven buttons and the rear selector wheel can be individually programmed in the function. This is done very clearly thanks to a graphical display with a view of the current function assignments.

In addition, the Fujifilm X-T20 offers a quick menu with 16 functions that can also be individually adapted. The context menu, on the other hand, is somewhat more confusing. Especially in the settings menu, you fight your way through several levels.

Fortunately, virtually all important recording functions can be accessed with keys or the Quick Menu, and you can also combine preferred menu items in an especially programmable menu. There are also seven user memories for quick recall of preferred recording configurations.


The Fujifilm X-T20 is covered with setting wheels. Together with the many programmable buttons, the recording functions can be operated very directly.


The rear screen of the Fujifilm X-T20 is a touch screen that can be folded up and down.

The rear screen measures a good 7.5 centimeters in the diagonal and has a sufficiently fine resolution of 1.04 million pixels in a 3:2 aspect ratio. The 45 degrees down and 110 degrees up folding mechanism also makes the screen great for shooting in front of the belly, near the ground, or across crowds.

Thanks to the maximum brightness of up to almost 680 cd/m², the screen can be read reasonably even in sunshine. It is even a touch screen, where the menus cannot be operated.

In the shooting mode, the touch sensitivity is limited to moving the autofocus area and, if desired, releasing it. During playback, the user can scroll through the photos by wiping, and zoom in on the images using the two-finger gesture familiar from smartphones.

The electronic viewfinder has a very fine resolution of 2.36 million pixels and, thanks to the proximity sensor, switches on automatically as soon as the camera is held up to the eye. For spectacle wearers, however, the viewfinder with a magnification factor of 0.62 times the 35mm equivalent, which is large enough, is less suitable because the exit pupil, which is too small, does not allow a complete overview of the image.

The existing dioptric correction helps at least those who do not have too much ametropia. The viewfinder otherwise displays the same image as the rear screen, such as exposure and white balance preview, a depth-of-field preview, a spirit level, a live histogram, and grid lines.

The shutter release has two pressure points that are easy to feel. Following the concept of the classic camera, a thread for a cable release is available. However, a cable remote release can also be used, which can be plugged in behind the interface flap on the left side. The 2.5mm jack connector also accepts the plug of a stereo microphone. Furthermore, a Micro-HDMI socket and a Micro-USB interface can be found here.

Although the Fujifilm X-T20 comes with an external charger for the lithium-ion battery, the battery can also be charged via USB, but only when the camera is switched off. The battery life of the lithium-ion battery is not exactly lavish with 350 shots according to the CIPA standard, which makes the USB charging function all the more valuable on the go, so the battery can be recharged with a power bank, for example.

Instead of the battery, a dummy with cable for an external power supply can also be connected. The SD card slot is compatible with SDHC and SDXC as well as UHS I, the write rate is just over 60 megabytes per second. So you should choose a fast card, just because of the 4K video function, which requires a UHS I Speed Class 3 card, which guarantees a minimum write rate of 30 MByte/s. The UHS I Speed Class 3 card is a very fast card.

Equipment And Features

With its aperture ring and exposure time wheel, the Fujifilm X-T20 is aimed specifically at ambitious photographers; you won’t find a program selector wheel. You can switch between manual mode, program automatic, aperture automatic and aperture automatic simply by setting one, both or none of the wheels to automatic.

The ISO automatic can be controlled independently of this, so it also works with manual exposure. A combination of the exposure correction is possible.

Nevertheless the Fujifilm X-T20 can be used without knowledge of ISO, exposure time and aperture. You simply set the small lever below the exposure time wheel to Auto and the camera takes over all the necessary settings and even recognizes the subject situation automatically. In this mode, the front control dial can also be used to select specific scene modes. The practical panorama function, on the other hand, can be reached via the dial on the left of the viewfinder.


The very well processed case of the Fujifilm X-T20 is made of metal in the upper and lower area (here: silver). In between there is a generous amount of plastic covered with non-slip rubber.


This also activates the series recording function with two corresponding positions on the setting wheel. This gives you quick access to various row recording functions. Not only the exposure can be varied, but also the dynamic range extension function, the ISO sensitivity, the film simulation mode or the white balance.

But those who like to photograph in raw can dispense with some of the row shooting functions, as the corresponding settings can also be made during the raw data conversion. What the Fujifilm X-T20 lacks, however, is an HDR function. There is only one multiple exposure function and even an interval shooting function.

The shutter of the Fujifilm X-T20 works either mechanically (up to 1/4,000 second) or electronically (up to 1/32,000 second) and is therefore completely silent. The speed of the serial shot depends on this.

With a mechanical shutter, Fujifilm promises a maximum of eight continuous frames per second, we even achieved 8.1 frames per second. The duration of the series was also slightly exceeded, we achieved 26 shots in a row in Rodaten format and even 78 in JPEG. Then we continue with a little over four JPEG images per second or just over two raw images per second, whereby we activated the lossless raw data compression. Thus, those who set the frame rates a little slower get much longer up to infinitely long series.

Then you also benefit from a live image, while at the high continuous shooting rates only the last photo taken is displayed in the viewfinder or on the screen. The autofocus, on the other hand, continues to be readjusted. With electronic shutter even up to 15 continuous shots per second are possible, but then the number of possible shots shrinks significantly.

The autofocus works both with phase measuring fields integrated on the sensor and on a contrast basis. The former provides information on the direction and width of the position, the latter is used for fine adjustment.

But you have to be careful because the Fujifilm X-T20 is factory set to a constantly activated autofocus and above all, a release priority so that a hundred percent sharpness doesn’t always have priority.

If you set the camera to focus priority and deactivate pre-autofocus, the autofocus will slow down, but the power consumption will decrease and the focus will be more accurate. As set as it is our standard, we measured a shutter release delay of 0.32 to 0.36 seconds, which is fast but is easily overshadowed by some other mirrorless system cameras.

The pure release delay without focusing is fast with 0.05 seconds, but also not record-breaking. However, when it comes to tracking moving subjects, the autofocus performs much better than the measurement suggests. This is where the hybrid system comes into its own.


The Fujifilm X-T20 offers three interfaces: A 2.5 mm jack socket for a remote release cable or stereo microphone, a micro USB socket for charging and data exchange, and micro HDMI for the video signal.


The handle of the Fujifilm X-T20 is very flat so that especially the non-slip rubber glue provides the necessary grip.

By the way, manually focusing with the Fujifilm X-T20 is a dream. Not only can you always use the autofocus at the push of a button, but you also get support from a digital cut image simulation, which is only available at Fujifilm, a focus magnifier and focus peaking.

In addition, there is a focus scale on the screen with distance information as well as an aperture-dependent depth of field display, which optionally works on a pixel basis in addition to the film format basis, which has a considerably lower depth of field due to the higher magnification.

The scale is extremely useful, especially in landscape photography. While on a film format basis at a focal length of 18 millimeters and F8 everything can be sharply imaged at less than two meters to infinity, on a pixel basis this is only possible from a distance of about five meters.

If you want to record videos, you first have to set the camera to the corresponding mode, because there is no special video recording button. The Fujifilm X-T20 films optionally in 4K resolution with up to 30 frames per second or in Full-HD as well as HD-Ready with up to liquid 60 frames per second each. 24p as “cinema look” represents the lower limit in each case.

Only a minimal crop in the image width takes place, which hardly matters. Vertically, the trim is significantly larger due to the different aspect ratio (3:2 sensor, 16:9 video). Aperture and exposure time can also be set manually on request. The autofocus adjusts the sharpness fluidly, quickly, smoothly, and above all silently. The touch screen makes it easy to focus on a different subject detail to automatically “pull” the focus.

The integrated stereo microphones are located at the top left and right of the lens bayonet, but an external stereo microphone can also be connected. A level indicator including a modulation option, but only in rough steps, is not missing either. It is stored in MOV format with H.264 compression at up to 100 Mbps quality (in 4K).

For both photo and video recordings, Fujifilm’s typical film simulation modes can be activated, which simulate real or imaginary analog films up to a switchable grain size. Here you can be wonderfully creative and give the photos an individual look that stands out from the mass of photos without losing image details. If you like, you can also activate more distorting filter effects such as toy camera, miniature effect, etc..


The Fujifilm X-T20’s APS-C sensor resolves 24 megapixels. Thanks to the X-Trans color filter, it does not need a low-pass filter to suppress moirés. Its strength lies above all in its very good color rendering.


Almost invisibly, the Fujifilm X-T20 also has an integrated flash that can do far more than standard functions such as long-term synchronization or an anti-red-eye pre-flash.

There is a flash exposure correction, red eyes can be removed either instead of or in addition to the pre-flash with an automatic digital retouching and also a manual flash output control in seven steps up to 1/64 of the full output are available besides a flash exposure correction.

The low guide number of (measured) 5.8 and the flash sync time of only 1/180 second, is worthy of notice.

For flash operation, the photographer must also become active himself in automatic mode and activate the mechanical release. The integrated flash is also not suitable as a control unit for wireless flash control, but a suitable external system flash must be attached to the TTL flash shoe.

The playback function allows some basic image editing functions, such as trimming. The integrated raw data converter offers more possibilities. Another interesting feature is the photo book function, which Fujifilm integrates into its cameras as a photo book service provider.

Thanks to WLAN, the Fujifilm X-T20 can be connected to a smartphone or even computers. Via a permanent WLAN connection, the camera can tap into the GPS of the smartphone, whereby the camera can be used normally, only that the images are provided with coordinates.

With the help of the corresponding app, wireless image transmission is also possible, and the app also offers a remote control function including live image transmission. The autosave function allows wireless data backup of the images on the home PC. Details about the app can be found in the photo tip in the links.

Picture Quality Of The Fujifilm X-T20

With their different color filter X-Trans instead of Bayer, the Fujifilm image sensors are something very special. The distribution with clusters of different sizes in the green channel and the distribution of red and blue filters in each row and column is closer to the analog film grain than with normal Bayer sensors.

A low-pass filter can be dispensed with without the danger of Moiré. Like many other APS-C cameras, the Fujifilm X-T20’s sensor resolves 24 megapixels, which is the highest resolution in the APS-C range since Samsung’s withdrawal.

In order to get a feel for the image quality, we tested the Fujifilm X-T20 with the set lens, which is sold together with the camera at a price of almost 1,200 dollars. This is a high quality, F2.8-4 fast 18-55mm zoom that covers a 35mm equivalent focal length range of approx. 27 to 83 millimeters.


Fujifilm has placed the tripod thread of the Fujifilm X-T20 very unfavorably. For the best performance and user experience, you can get the matching handle with Arca Swiss shot, which also improves the handling of the camera.


The battery and SD memory cards are removed from the bottom of the Fujifilm X-T20. One should pay attention to a fast UHS-I memory card in order not to slow down the up to 60 MB/s fast camera unnecessarily

The 18-55 shows the usual high performance on the Fujifilm X-T20, edge darkening, distortion and color fringes are almost completely corrected, which is not least due to Fujifilm’s Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO), which frees the images in the tested JPEG mode from optical errors and can even compensate for the diffraction effect to a limited extent.

In the case of resolution measurement, this optimization can be read off from the measured values. For all focal lengths, the resolution suddenly rises again slightly after a slight drop when dipping down, while the sharpness artifacts increase in parallel.

The maximum resolution is almost 58 line pairs per millimeter (lp/mm) in 35mm equivalent at 50 percent contrast. In principle a very good value, but for 24 megapixels also not outstanding, but expectable.

Especially at short and medium focal lengths the resolution is good over a wide aperture range and moves down to F11 at 48 and more lp/mm. A high resolution of 42 to 49 lp/mm is also achieved at the edge of the image so that the edge drop of the resolution remains low and moves to the fixed focal length level.

With a long focal length, the lens weakens a little, especially when stopped down, it loses resolution. The resolution drops from 51 lp/mm at F4 to 38 lp/mm at F8 but reaches 40 lp/mm again at F11. At the edge of the image, the resolution at 55 mm is between 43 and 32 lp/mm, which means that the edge drop is also low, but the resolution is only just enough for sharp images up to 20 x 30 centimeters print format, but not much more.

The APS-C image sensor with its resolution of 24 megapixels has a pixel pitch of approximately 3.9 µm, which does not mean that the pixels are just as large. It is a standard CMOS sensor without BSI architecture, i.e. the traces cover a certain part of the light-sensitive surface.

Up to ISO 400, the Fujifilm X-T20 achieves a good signal-to-noise ratio of over 40 dB, up to ISO 3,200 the value remains within the acceptable range of over 35 dB. The noise has an extremely fine grain, but the brightness noise only becomes visible above ISO 3.200, color noise plays practically no role.

The noise reduction affects the details from about ISO 800, but up to ISO 1.600 there are still more than enough of them left. At ISO 3.200 there is already a slight loss of the finest image details, but even ISO 6.400 can still be used with quite acceptable image quality. It also doesn’t hurt to reduce the noise suppression in the camera a bit and rather allow a little more of the “grain”, which is good for the images at ISO 3,200 and 6,400. You should only turn the sensitivity higher in an emergency or then have to live with a corresponding loss of image quality.

The input dynamics of Fujifilm in JPEG are not particularly good, the Fujifilm X-T20 is no exception. It only achieves a dynamic range of a good nine to 9.5 f-stops, but maintains it over a wide sensitivity range up to ISO 12,800.

The tonal value curve is slightly divided for crisper mid-range contrasts, with the tonal value range dropping from very good over 224 from 256 possible brightness gradations at ISO 100 and 200 over well more than 192 f-stops to ISO 800 to acceptable over 160 f-stops at ISO 3,200.

However, it is noticeable that the red and especially the blue channel are somewhat weaker – no wonder, as there are considerably fewer pixels available than in the green channel. However, this leads to the fact that at slightly higher ISO sensitivities visible gradations in brightness gradients can already occur.

Especially for landscape shots with a lot of blue skies, one should stay at ISO 200 and never set more than ISO 800, as then there would only be 128 and less brightness levels.

The Fujifilm X-T20 again shows very good color fidelity, color tones are predominantly reproduced very accurately and only in individual color tones with slight deviations, but all of which remain within a small range.

The strongest deviation is to be registered with purple, which “slips” direction Magenta. Also very good is the actual color depth with over four million colors up to high ISO 3,200, with the lowest sensitivities, there are even about eight million color nuances. Fujifilm doesn’t fool anyone here so easily.

Bottom line: Is The Fujifilm X-T20 Worth It?

Even though the Fujifilm X-T20 is a good dollars more expensive than its predecessor at 900 dollars, it still offers an excellent price-performance ratio.

The workmanship is on a very good level, the service is also very well solved. The compact system camera only has to leave some feathers when the handle is a little too small and the thumb and index finger control wheels are a little too slippery.

The individualization possibilities in operation leave nothing to be desired. The folding display allows flexible photography in addition to the high-resolution viewfinder. The autofocus is especially fast when tracking moving subjects, but does not reach its best values in a single sprint.

Good continuous shooting performance is also suitable for action photography. Videographers also get their money’s worth with the 4K resolution and microphone connection.

The image quality of the Fujifilm X-T20 is very good overall. The resolution is high, the color reproduction very accurate. At most, the dynamic range and the brightness curves in the blue channel have a somewhat restrictive effect.

Compared to the X-T10, which is available used, the Fujifilm X-T20 offers a significant added value and, for photographers who find the X-T2 too expensive, a high-performance level at the purchase price. The large selection of really outstanding XF lenses should not go unmentioned.

Firmware Update For The Fujifilm X-T20

Fujifilm has provided firmware updates for many of the X system cameras and the GFX-50S medium format system camera over the last two weeks. The affected X System cameras Fujifilm X-T20, X-T2, X-T1, X-T10, X-Pro2, X-Pro1, X-E1, X-E2, X-E2S, X-M1, X-A1, X-A2, X-A3 and X-A10 all get support for the new 80mm macro, only the X-E3 and X-Pro1 are missing yet. But the X-E3 comes with the support from the box. The GFX 50S and the X-T2, as well as the Fujifilm X-T20, also get new functions.

The firmware update 1.10 for the Fujifilm X-T20 only includes support for the new Instax Share SP-3 instant image printer and the new X-E3 touchpad AF function. The touch screen can be used to set the autofocus point when looking through the viewfinder.

The update 3.00 for the X-T2 already brings a lot more new functions, as the big version jump already suggests. For example, the tracking autofocus is 50 percent faster, which makes it much easier to follow fast-moving subjects.

The software X Raw Studio and the Instax Share SP-3 are now supported. Furthermore, the new X Aquire software can read out and save the camera settings and transfer them back to the camera.

In addition to the histogram, it is now possible to display an RGB histogram and a highlight warning during playback. Studio photographers benefit from better wireless flash control for high-speed flashes and TTL support. Also, an exposure preview error has been fixed that could occur with ISO auto and exposure-compensation wheelset to “C”.

Firmware 2.00 for the GFX 50S also brings significant improvements and new features. As with the X-T2, wireless studio flash support has been improved and Instax Share SP-3, X Raw Studio, and X Aquire are now supported.

A new option for the EVF is that the rear screen is activated for playback, as you are used to from a DSLR (but the viewfinder offers the higher resolution and is actually better suited to control the image quality).

Furthermore, the 1/3 exposure setting for the command wheels can be deactivated so that the value set on the exposure time wheel is not accidentally changed.

Also, the triggering when a memory card is not inserted can now be prevented by the menu adjustment, so that one notices clearly that no memory card is inserted at the latest during the photographing. Last but not least, the electronic viewfinder can be set even darker, the scale has been extended to include the values -6 and -7.

The firmware updates can be downloaded from the Fujifilm website (see links) and installed by the photographer himself. The website is only available in English.

Furthermore, the free software X RAW Studio now starts with the Macintosh version 1.0. The special thing about this raw developer software is that you don’t need a powerful computer because the calculations are done via the image processor of the USB-connected camera.
