Fujifilm has just announced the addition of the Fujifilm X-T200 to their lineup of the X Series mirrorless cameras and the launch of the standard zoom lens Fujinon GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR for the GFX Series. Let’s have a closer look!
(The information below stems from the official Fujifilm press releases).
The X-T200 is a mirrorless digital camera that inherits the “central viewfinder style,” adopted by the popular X-T Series such as the Fujifilm X-T3 that boasts advanced mobility and excellent operability. The compact and lightweight camera body, weighing just 370g, is equipped with an APS-C sensor packing 24.24 million pixels and a high-performance image processing engine. The use of the unique color reproduction technology, nurtured over many years, recreates “memory colors” or colors as one remembers in one’s memory, such as naturally beautiful skin tones, vivid lush greens of early summer and deep blues of the sky on a bright sunny day. The camera’s AF performance has been enhanced by placing on-sensor phase detection pixels across the sensor and adopting a further evolved algorithm. This enables outstanding AF tracking of a moving subject and AF on faces / eyes, as well as giving the ability to attain focus quickly and accurately even in low light conditions.
