The Fujifilm X20 Digital Camera (Silver) is a compact point and shoot camera featuring a 12 megapixel 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II sensor and an EXR Processor II to provide high quality imagery. The combination of the image sensor and processor enables a sensitivity range to ISO 12800 and also gives quick performance abilities to all aspects of the camera. Fujifilm's proprietary X-Trans sensor uses a unique randomized pixel array in order to avoid the use of a resolution-reducing optical low-pass filter, therefore providing images with the utmost sharpness and clarity. This imaging system is benefitted by the Intelligent Hybrid AF system, which uses both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus quickly and accurately. Full manual focusing is also possible by using the focus ring on the lens. The built-in lens is a 28-112mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.0-2.8 lens that integrates aspheric, extra-low dispersion, and high-refractive index glass elements to help reduce aberrations and improve image sharpness and quality.

The X20 also incorporates an advanced optical viewfinder to provide real-time, eye-level monitoring. This viewfinder utilizes the thin, transparent Digital Trans Panel for displaying exposure and camera information over the optical viewfinder to enable full-time viewing through the optical viewfinder while being able to modify camera settings. For playback and review of imagery, a 2.8" 460k-dot LCD is also available on the rear of the camera. Menu navigation is done through an intuitive graphical interface, which can be further refined when using the Q (Quick Menu) Button to quickly access essential camera settings.

Full HD movie recording is supported up to 1920 x 1080p at 60fps with a 36Mbps bit-rate for clear, fluid-looking videos. Zoom and focus can be manually controlled during recording, and audio levels, white balance settings, and Film Simulation modes can also be applied to refine the overall appearance of your movies. Film Simulation modes make use of Fujifilm's history of producing both negative and slide films, and allow you to apply those films' characteristics to your digital imagery to better suit your intended look.

The X20's body construction features top and bottom plates that are constructed from die-cast magnesium for additional strength and rigidity while still maintaining the camera's overall light weight. Precision-milled metal dials and a focus ring give tactile satisfaction during use and the synthetic leather wrap affords protection to the body while also providing a high quality overall appearance.

Advanced Optical Viewfinder
The Fujifilm X20 integrates an advanced optical viewfinder that is comprised of two aspherical lenses, two glass prisms, and other optical elements to provide the utmost clarity for real-time finding and image composing. This finder also integrates a thin, transparent Digital Trans Panel for displaying focus area, shutter speed, and other exposure information in the viewfinder. This allows you to always keep your eye to the finder while being able to monitor camera settings at the same time.

The Digital Trans Panel is also able to change colors of its provided information depending on the surrounding lighting conditions; in bright light, the information is shown in black and under darker conditions, the information is displayed by green LEDs. If an error occurs during shooting, information will be displayed in red to alert you. Also taking note of how you shoot, a built-in eye sensor detects when the camera is held to your eye and will subsequently turn off the main LCD for more clear use of the optical finder.
12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II Sensor
A large 2/3" CMOS image sensor is integrated into the X20 to provide high image quality and detail. Using Fujifilm's unique X-Trans bespoke pixel array, the sensor is designed with a randomized pixel pattern to eliminate the need of an optical low-pass filter for reducing moiré and aliasing. By removing this filter from the design, higher image sharpness is possible. This image sensor also utilizes backside illumination technology to help with the integration of phase-detection pixels into the sensor for improved autofocus performance without affecting image quality.

The X-Trans sensor also pairs well with the EXR Processor II to provide highly effective noise reduction and a clean signal-to-noise ratio. This enables smoother-looking imagery that becomes especially apparent when photographing in low-light situations with a native sensitivity level of ISO 12800.
EXR Processor II
Aside from benefitting low-light performance, the EXR Processor II also provides quick performance throughout the entire camera system. The camera start-up time is about 0.5 second, shutter lag is about 0.01 second, and the shooting interval time is about 0.5 second. Additionally, this processing power provides enough speed to capture up to 12fps for 11 consecutive frames.
Fujinon 28-112mm f/2.0-2.8 Lens
The built-in 4x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-112mm with a fast maximum aperture of f/2.0-2.8. The inclusion of aspheric, extra-low dispersion, and high-refractive index glass elements helps to reduce the appearance of aberrations throughout the zoom range while also significantly contributing to overall image sharpness. Lens elements are treated with a multi-layer HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to minimize lens flare and ghosting while shooting for greater light transmittance and contrast within imagery.

The metal lens barrel is used to manually control your zoom magnification as well as control the on/off power setting to the camera. This intuitive control method gives you the ability to quickly turn on your camera to record imagery while holding the camera at an eye-level position.

Benefitting the lens and especially low-light shooting, a lens-shift type optical image stabilization (OIS) system is integrated into the design to counter the effects of camera shake up to four stops. This OIS system also enhances image sharpness when working as closely as 0.4" / 1cm in Super Macro mode.
Intelligent Hybrid AF
Intelligent Hybrid AF is a quick, responsive autofocus system that employs both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus quickly in a wide variety of shooting situations. Clear focus can be attained in as little as 0.06 second to aid in catching fast-paced movement more easily.
Quality in Design
The X20 features a compact body design that utilizes die-cast magnesium top and bottom plates to provide durability while still remaining lightweight. A precision-milled metal zoom ring and control dials give exacting, tactile control over camera functions and a synthetic leather body wrap provides a high quality look and feel for handling. Small, nuanced details, such as the ability to change sound of the shutter, firm aperture click stops, and an elegant metal lens cap also offer greater satisfaction during use.

An efficient graphical user interface promotes greater intuitiveness for menu navigation and monitoring. The Q Button gives a one-touch solution to modifying commonly used camera settings quickly and easily. All of the menus and setting navigation is done on the rear 2.8" 460k-dot LCD that also provides high definition playback of still images and video. This monitor can be used to display an exposure histogram, an electronic horizon leveling gauge, and framing guidelines, too.
Full HD Movie Capabilities
Full HD movie recording is possible with multiple frame rates and formats up to 1920 x 1080p at 60fps to produce smoothly-depicted movement. A high bit-rate of 36Mbps enables greater clarity when shooting video, which is ideal for showcasing your movies on an HDTV utilizing the built-in HDMI mini connection.

While recording video you can manually control the zoom and focus settings via the lens, and, additionally, you can control the audio level in four steps. White balance settings and Film Simulation modes can also be applied to movie recording to fine-tune the appearance of your videos.
Film Simulation Mode
Taking advantage of Fujifilm's vast history in traditional film-based photography, the X20 integrates several Film Simulation modes to mimic the look and feel of some Fujifilm's classic film types. Pulling from their line of transparency films, PROVIA offers natural-looking tones for everyday shooting, VELVIA produces a more dramatic and rich tonality with deeper color saturation, and ASTIA gives less contrast for a softer depiction of skin tones. Mimicking their negative films, PRO Neg. Std. gives smooth image tones that are suitable for accurate color renditions, while PRO Neg. Hi produces a more dramatic feel with the ability to draw color out of a variety of lighting conditions. In addition to the colorful benefits of these Film Simulation modes, there are also monochrome modes that simulate the look of traditional yellow, green, and red black and white contrast filters. A sepia mode is also available for producing a nostalgic look.

    Functional, user friendly camera that is just plain FUN to use. Got mine about a month ago after several days of reading reviews, and so far it has exceeded all my expectations. Image quality at low ISO is very good, with sharp details...and amazing color rendition when white balance is fine tuned. It will never replace my D7100, but it is very handy when you can't or don't want to lug around the DSLR and assorted lenses. Even when I do carry the Nikon and backpack full of lenses lately, the X20 is almost un-noticeable hanging around my neck, and has really worked well for those "get it quick" shots that might otherwise be missed. With all the controls and features found in most DSLR's I do not consider the X20 a "point and shoot" camera. The optical viewfinder with info display is a real plus, another feature that puts it in a category above "point and shoot". Quality of construction is excellent, very sturdy and finished nicely. And last but not least...it looks really good ! (The only downside I have found is short battery life...if you are a serious all day and or night shooter, you WILL NEED extra batteries!!! I ordered several extras, and keep them with the camera in a small carry bag.)

    This is a really interesting camera. To be fair, I've only had it a bit less than a week.

    I upgraded from the Fuji X10 because the slow autofocus on that camera drove me up the wall. I also wanted a viewfinder with actual feedback. With the feeble autofocus on the X10, there was no way to know if the focus was going to be useable from the viewfinder. That's a problem when the ambient light is too strong to see the LCD display.

    Am I glad I upgraded? Tough question. Yes, the autofocus is much improved and I like the enhanced viewfinder, though the automatic eye-detection seems a bit hit and miss.

    But the sensor has changed. The X10 image quality had an indefinable dreamy quality to it. The image on this camera is harsher and more contrasty, though admittedly I have not had time to really dial it in.

    The high ISO performance also seems degraded, and I miss the EXR function. I believe Fuji has used the same technology from the X100s, so they must have de-tuned it for this lower-end camera. I really hope there will be a future upgrade to the firmware to get the X20 to at least deliver similar quality to the X10.

    Overall, the problem with both of these cameras is that their true appeal is in the amazing form factor and build quality that is the undeniable reincarnation of the film rangefinder. While these camera's IQ does blow away most other point-and-shoots, ultimately, what your heart desires out of them is that old 35-mm film quality, which you definitely don't get. And to step up to the XE-1 or X100s is a bigger, bulkier form factor, and more money than a dSLR.

    The filter size is also annoying. 39.5-mm? C'mon! Fortunately, a 40-mm filter will fit, but that is not easy to find, either, and you definitely need a protective UV filter out front. Which renders the nifty lens cap useless, however.

        Comments about X20 Digital Camera (Black):

        This is one of those cameras that you want to love desperately, and yet it just doesn't deliver. The camera out of box feels nice, and the buttons all seem to function well together ergonomically. The issue I have is the image quality.The low-light performance is worthy of being singled out. I haven't seen performance this bad in quite a long time. I had a small Canon p&s 6 years ago that can outshoot the X20 in low light. Now, I'm not talking high ISO settings either. Past 200 files look terrible. Over 400 and you lose significant color and texture. And over 800 is trash.The lens is okay, but isn't as sharp as what you'd expect. Having to turn the lens to turn the camera on is a love/hate situation for myself. It feels gimicky.And that is my final point. This camera is a gimick. The range finder experience I had 10 years ago just doesn't translate with the X20.My recommendation is pass on this one. I've heard great things about the X100/s models, and the RX100II looks pretty great.

        Comments about X20 Digital Camera (Black):

        I had the x10 before this and had it stolen after 2 years of using. I'm no expert on cameras but the quality and photos I took with the x10 were really wonderful and have had several folks see them and have told me many should be framed. Oh yes, you can bump a button on it and it can drive someone like me nuts trying to get it back to normal again (I believe it has a new reset) but I really like the look, feel and quality of this camera.

          This camera creates better images than my large DSLR. I've had it a month and am pleased with the quality of construction and the images I've been able to take with it. I think it is especially good for the price. It is small and very portable. It's true that you can hardly pick it up without touching a control button or dial -- but that's simply a result of having so many features packet into such a small camera. I read as many reviews of the camera as I could find before making the purchase decision. Some have claimed that the battery wears down quickly but I haven't had that problem (although I did buy an extra battery just in case -- they're relatively inexpensive). I've used a pro level camera of one kind or another for more than 30 years and this little Fugi compares well. I will need to spend more serious time studying the manual because I can't really see the significant differences between some of the camera's various modes -- they seem kind of redundant at first look. Again, I haven't really studied and experimented with them all yet; but the manual could do a better job explaining them. One last criticism is that when shooting in Manual mode the exposure info is shown on the display screen, but not in the viewfinder. Those of us used to making the settings and seeing them through a viewfinder would prefer to retain that ability. But this is a small criticism -- the camera is a great one. I've really enjoyed using the incredibly close macro features to take botanical images -- I'm very pleased by the images the Fugi produces.

          Comments about X20 Digital Camera (Black):

          I am delighted with my purchase of the Fujifilm X20. It is extremely well made and handles very nicely. I like the fact that is has a slightly larger sensor than many of its direct competitors, e.g., a 2/3rd-inch sensor that's slightly larger than what's in the Canon G15/G16 and and others with the 1/1.7 sensor. The camera feels nice in my hands and looks great. I especially like how I can hold down the OK button for several seconds and this will lock many of the control buttons on the back so one doesn't inadvertently change settings without knowing it. I really like the mechanical zoom ring, which is much better than the electronic zoom toggle switch found on many high-end point-and-shoot cameras, and I really like the fact that it has a very well designed optical viewfinder with eye sensor. I bought the accessory Fuji-branded lens filter, made especially for the X20. It screwed right into the filter threads on the Fuji lens. It also came with an optional lens hood, which I didn't install. Just the filter was all I needed. And one other thing. The pictures I have taken with the X20 have been spectacular. The camera is not a DSLR replacement, but it is an exceptional walk-around camera. It's light, but built extremely solid, and it handles nicely. The only thing I do not like is the charger. It works fine, but the prongs do not fold into the charger. This makes the charger a bit bulkier than it has to be.

            Quick focus, Easy to use. Lighter than DSLR and Micro 4/3.
            Focus is reliable, Image quality for comoact is very good. Viewfinder a big plus for daylight shooting.

                What a wonderful camera. I usually work with a Canon 7D, and here I found a small camera with quite the same quality level. An huge avantage is its small size and its retro look. In NYC it was perfect to take discreet shots everywhere... And the quality is incredible. Pictures are sharp and colours are wonderful. Black & white is astonishing. A real good investment.

                Appologies for the confusing text above, I can't work out B&H's text editing ...

                There are now plenty of reviews and comments about Fujifilm's X20 all over the internet. There is nothing I can add about the quality of this seberb little camera that has not already been read by most people interested in this camera.
                Except perhaps to ask the question: "when will Fujifilm include a comprehensive index at the back of the owners' manual"? Also, better battery life remaining reporting.

                What I would like to say is how excellent the service from B&H. 5 Days from NY to my home in Hamilton, New Zealand, and with a great tracking system to boot. Thanks B&H.

                Comments about X20 Digital Camera (Black):

                I like to carry a camera with me everywhere but I have always been looking for something with the feel of a film rangefinder- small, discrete, and responsive. With the X20 I feel like all of my needs have been met. The camera is solid, stable, has a usable viewfinder, fast zoom lens, great image quality, and a responsive shutter. It turns on quickly and allows me to react immediately to a changing situation. I love the way that the display turns off when your eye goes to the optical viewfinder.

                I have only three quibbles: battery life is not great, OVF meter does not show you how many stops off you are, and Info display is a little busy.

                  Comments about X20 Digital Camera (Silver):

                  I travel to some amazing places in my business and I like having a quality camera handy to take some nice pictures when I get some free time. Taking my DSLR isn't a practical option, but this Fuji X20 is perfect. It's small enough to put in my shoulder bag, but big enough to fit comfortably in my hand. And it takes fabulous pictures.

                  There's a lot to like about the X20. In particular, I like adjusting the zoom on the lens barrel, and I like having the option of an optical viewfinder in situations where glare on the LCD screen is a problem.

                  Mostly, though, I like the jpegs it produces, straight out of the camera. I've owned more than two dozen cameras in my life, including Hasselblads, Leicas and numerous Nikons, so I'm spoiled when it comes to image quality. Having the X20 in my bag is like having my old M-series Leica ready at hand - but better.

                  My only wish for the X30 would be a lens that starts at 24mm instead of 28. Get to work, Fuji!

                  Excellent low light handling, even handheld.
                  Excellent auto white balance, even in tricky light sources.
                  Very fast handling camera, making it great for street photography and travel photos.
                  Easy to learn or transition from using other cameras.
                  Optical viewfinder is always 'on' and fast, but the lens will stick into your view when you compose (but not in the actual photo).

                      Comments about X20 Digital Camera (Black):

                      I was initially looking for a simple point-and-shoot camera to take on a summer vacation as I didn't want to take my DSLR kit (overkill) or my Fujifilm X-100 (too precious if lost). The X-20 seemed like a good solution - I knew the quality of Fujinon lenses and I figured there should be a fair amount of similarity between the X-20 and my X-100 such that the learning curve would be minimal. I have to say that the aesthetics of the camera's design are about as appealing as the X-100, and in the hand it feels really nice. But to actually USE the camera - that is where things get ugly. For starters, there are far too many buttons on too small a piece of real estate, and the end result is I found I was frequently activating, deactivating, or otherwise changing this or that configuration every time I picked up the the camera. I had read about the problems some have had with the power-on switch sometimes not engaging, and I did get that every now-and-then, but frankly that was not as annoying as I thought it might be. What was annoying, however, was that I found several of the menu settings that simply did not behave according to the description in the User Manual; it felt as if the firmware, which was the latest available, was pretty buggy. And finally, the image quality was seriously lacking - especially when shooting at any ISO above 400. I honestly think my cell phone (I hate cell phones) takes much better pictures than the X-20. Especially annoying was how the display would inexplicably become way over-saturated and blown out. By the time I was about to give up and go to bed, the (once fully-charged) battery died. I finally became so frustrated trying to learn and use the X-20 that I returned it (B&H is so understanding in that regard) and exchanging it for the much more expensive, but familiar (to me, at least) X-100S. To be honest, I might have lived with the X-20 had it not been for the really disappointing image quality; that was the ultimate deal-breaker for me.

                      Let me get this straight,I own the Fuji XE1 and love it. So when I was searching for a smaller fun camer I got the X20 thinking I would get similer pictures to the EX 1 boy was I wrong. Low light portraits with available light was no good, and using the flash was no better. Overall image quality is poor and could have gotter better quality with a much cheaper camera. I am so ready to trade it in.

                            Rather than toting my Nikon D3 around(which I do less and less) I can take my Fuji without a thought eg. is this a sketchy neighborhood?.IQ is excellent.I've owned Fuji hs 10 and 20, but this is a whole new ballgame.Best feature "it makes photography fun again"

                            A classic rangefinder look to this camera and practically no shutter click until you activate quiet mode then it is completely silent.
                            Super sharp lens and I'm loving all the different modes that are available to use also enjoying the lowlight performance.
