Fujifilm’s Surprise Move For The X-T200 Mirrorless Camera
Fujifilm has taken an unusual and unexpected move to replace its entry-level X-T100 mirrorless camera.
The just-announced X-T200 still shoots 24.2-megapixel stills but it now also captures 4K video using a ‘Digital Gimbal Function,’ making it indispensable to video makers.
The new function promises extra-stable footage, it smoothes the video even further than expected in a smartphone, according to Fujifilm.
Regardless of how credible that claim is, consumers can expect HDR in both video and camera stills to enable more detail in high-contrast scenes.
Consumers can also expect a new vari-angle 3.5-inch touchscreen display that can be opened and twisted to help frame your vlogs. Additionally, the photography has been promised to be an improvement from the X-T100.
Improved autofocusing, including face and eye detection, with phase detection pixels across the sensor processing data 3.5 times faster than its predecessor.
But there are speed limitations – the new camera may shoot full-resolution stills at a respectable rate of 8 frames per second, 4K video is capped at 30FPS with slow motion 1080p stuck at 120FPS.
The X-T200 is expected to be available for the market around late February and is set to cost consumers around the $700 mark, which will vary depending on any additional lens’.
