Recently, Fujifilm upgraded its midrange ‘X-S’ model from X-S10 to X-S20. The new camera doesn’t look like much of an upgrade at first – its design is super similar to the X-S10 – but under the hood are greatly improved processing and a much bigger battery.
Although the sensor remains the same 26MP chip as in its predecessor, a new processor takes its abilities up a new level, adding the improved autofocus and subject detection algorithms from Fujifilm’s higher-end cameras. These include faces/eyes for people, animals, birds, insects, bikes, automobiles, trains, airplanes and drones.
In-body stabilization has also been upgraded – 7 stops now instead of 6. And the new processor makes it a much better camera for video, able to shoot at higher resolutions and higher frame rates.
Let’s take a closer look at the Fujifilm X-S20 and how it compares to other cameras in the Fujifilm X-mount family.
