Fujifilm has a new entry-level-ish camera for its X line of APS-C mirrorless cameras, hoping to find a sweet spot for hybrid photo and video creators. It’s introducing the new $1,299 X-S20 camera, $799 XF 8mm f/3.5R WR super-wide lens, and a new X App at its ongoing X Summit Bangkok. While the new app will try to pick up the pieces and outdo its predecessor’s abysmal App Store review score on May 25th, the camera and lens are both set to launch around June 29th.
The Fujifilm X-S20 is $300 pricier than its predecessor
That sweet spot, in Fujifilm’s eyes, for the X-S20 means the latest processor of the X-H2 duo and the X-T5 is combined with the same sensor as the last-gen X-S10. While this means the new X-S20, which is $300 pricier than its predecessor, mind you, is limited to the same last-gen 26 megapixels of resolution, it now pushes its video output to 6.2K (up from 4K) with the option for Apple ProRes footage.
