FUJIFILM Corporation announce the launch of the mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-S20” (X-S20) on June 29, 2023. It is a new addition to the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras known for their compact and lightweight body and superior image quality based on the company’s proprietary color reproduction technology. In its compact and lightweight body that has been well-received in previous model*1, the X-S20 features AI-based subject-detection AF and capability to record 6.2K/30P video. The X-S20 can take approximately 800 frames*2 per charge with the use of the newly-adopted high-capacity battery and keeps operating for an extended duration of time, making it an ideal travel camera.
The X-S20 offers premium image quality and advanced portability, catering to a variety of shooting styles ranging from casual self-portraits to fully-fledged photography and videography.
The X-S20 is equipped with the back-illuminated 26.1MP sensor “X-Trans™ CMOS 4”*3 and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 5” to produce high-quality images. It features X-S Series’ signature large grip for hand-holding stability. The use of the new high-capacity battery has more than doubled the number of frames per charge to approximately 800 compared to that of the previous model. The compact and light body, weighing just 491g*4 makes it comfortable to use even in long-hour shootings. The camera also features the five-axis in-body image stabilization (IBIS) mechanism that offers up to 7.0-stop advantage*5. The AI-based subject-detection AF, capable of detecting animals and cars, adds to its AF performance, equivalent to the fifth-generation X Series camera, FUJIFILM X-T5, for added mobility.
The X-S20 is equipped with high-performance video recording functions such as 6.2K/30P 4:2:2 10-bit video onto an SD card inserted in the camera. By installing the cooling fan FAN-001*6, the users can shoot 6.2K/30P video for up to 78 minutes*7. Also, with the adoption of a φ3.5mm microphone / earphone jack, the users can shoot fully-fledged video using external accessories. Furthermore, the new Vlog Mode makes it easy to produce a Vlog when the camera is combined with the tripod grip, “TG-BT1.”*6
Fujifilm will support users enjoy photography and videography in comfort by continuing to offer the X Series of mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors, an extensive lineup of premium-quality lenses including the FUJINON Lens XF8mmF3.5 R WR, also released today, and the dedicated app, FUJIFILM XApp.
