If you’re a fan of retro-inspired aesthetics and plan to get into the mirrorless camera scene, then this may interest you. Fujifilm has announced the launch of its new entry-level APS-C camera—the Fujifilm X-T200.
The arrival of the X-T200 isn’t wholly unexpected, seeing that its predecessor the X-T100 was launched in 2018. Despite staying true to the X-T100 looks (that isn’t a bad thing at all, mind you), Fujifilm has introduced some significant upgrades to the X-T200.
Firstly, the X-T200 packs a new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor that offers a native sensitivity range from ISO200-12800 (expandable to ISO100-51200). The new hardware can also now shoot UHD 4K video at up to 29.97p and Full HD recording of up to 59.94p. It also has electronic image stabilisation as well as the ability to shoot continuous 8fps for moving objects.
The new sensor boasts a hybrid autofocus system that uses both phase-detection and contrast-detection for better and more precise autofocus performance. This new AF system also enables Face and Eye Detection for better portrait shots.
For added versatility, the X-T200 includes a 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a large 3.5-inch 16:9 2.76m-dot touchscreen LCD, which is now fully-articulating.
There are built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth that allows you to wirelessly share images and footage and remotely control the camera from a smartphone or tablet.
It also offers a USB-C port and a 3.5mm mini stereo jack.
According to Fujifilm, the removable WP-W126S battery will deliver up to 270 shots per charge in normal mode or about 450 shots in economy mode.
While it brings substantial upgrades over the X-T100, the X-T200 is surprisingly 80g lighter than its predecessor, tipping the scales at 370g.
Pricing and availability
The Fujifilm X-T200 is priced at USD699 (~MYR2,856) and is available for pre-order now in the US. It will be available in retail channels starting late February in three colours: Silver, Dark Silver, and Champagne.
