Fuji’s XT series cameras are the introductory series of Fuji X-series mirrorless cameras. With their excellent cost performance and beautiful and stylish appearance, they are quite influential in the market. The X released in 2018 -T100 has a large market share. At that time, this machine was easy to control, cost-effective, and had a good reputation among entry-level users. After a lapse of one and a half years, Fuji has once again launched an upgraded version of this camera: X-T200. For old X-T100 users, what changes has the new X-T200 brought about? For entry-level users who are admitted, is the Fuji X-T200 a purchase? Are the changes in the image quality and user experience of the new camera worthy of upgrading? With these questions, let’s take a look at Fuji X- The actual performance of T200!
Fuji X-series cameras, as a series of cameras that Fuji has been working on for many years, have a very large category system in terms of products and lens groups, so when users buy Fuji digital cameras , The choice is also quite large, whether it is a camera with a non-changeable lens or a camera with an interchangeable lens, you can find the corresponding products. But the focus of our discussion today is this X-T200, a new product positioned in the entry-level user market.
In terms of product configuration, Fuji X-T200 uses a 24.2 million pixel APS-C format CMOS image sensor, and uses copper wiring connections that can improve performance. Data The processing speed is 3.5 times faster than X-T100, and the shutter jelly effect is reduced. By using phase detection autofocus pixels on the entire sensor, the autofocus performance of the X-T200 is also significantly enhanced. The sensitivity range reaches ISO200 to ISO12800, and it supports the expansion of ISO100 and ISO51200. The maximum continuous shooting speed is 8fps. It can also shoot 1080/120P and 4K/30P videos. The new “electronic anti-shake mode” can record videos smoothly. Enhance image quality.

This test I used Fuji XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6OISPZ and Fuji XC35mmF2 lens. Next, let me take a look at the performance of this product!
Fuji X-T200 fuselage continues the design concept of Fuji X-T100 fuselage, and the front is covered with a large area of artificial leather imitating lychee skin , While bringing a strong retro style, it also improves the slip resistance of the surface of the fuselage. It has a total of three colors of design. This time we reviewed the silver version.

On the top of the fuselage, the Fuji X-T200 body is equipped with four dials. In addition to the shooting mode dial, there are also three multi-function mode dials. The Fn button on the top and the power switch lever add an ON/OFF power button; considering the positioning of this machine, the four dials on the top of the Fuji X-T200 fuselage are not equipped with a dial lock.

Fuji X-T200 fuselage bottom adopts the same color scheme as the top of the fuselage. It should be noted that due to the increase in the screen size, the Fuji X-200 changed the opening direction of the battery compartment cover, but like the previous Fuji products, the 1/4-inch quick release plate screw hole position at the bottom of the fuselage is relatively to the right Side, after installing the quick release plate, it will affect the normal opening of the battery compartment cover.

In terms of fuselage interface, Fuji X-T200 has the same number of interfaces as the previous X-T100, but the USB interface is cancelled. The Type-C data interface is added. Fuji has also added a Type-C to 3.5mm monitor hole in the package of this machine, which can make this machine more convenient for video shooting.
Fuji X-T200 handle design

Fuji X-T100 was also deeply used at the time, so when I got the Fuji X-T200, I could Obviously feel some of the changes between the two, in my opinion, the most obvious changes are the three areas of the front handle, the button area on the back, and the screen. Previously, the handle of the Fuji X-T100 was a pure plane, and it needed to be passed later. The handle is added to increase the grip; and the button area on the back is also more compact because of the increase in screen size.

Fuji X-T200 back screen uses a 3.5-inch 2.76 million pixel LCD screen
Fuji X-T200 is also equipped with a two-way folding LCD screen , Its screen size is 3.5 inches, 2.76 million pixels screen supports touch, it can be folded between 0 to 180 degrees, and rotated between -90 to +180 degrees. It also provides intuitive control and responsive control of camera features and functions, and can be used to adjust various settings such as brightness, background blur, film simulation effects, and image aspect ratio.
Fuji X-T200 uses a model NP-W126s lithium battery
In terms of battery life, Fuji X-T200 uses a model NP-W126s, which supports USB charging and has a capacity of 1200mAh Lithium battery, endurance performance is not bad.
Sensitivity real shot test
Fuji X-T200 uses about 24.2 million pixels APS-CCMOS with primary color filter. The native sensitivity range is ISO200-12800, which can be extended to ISO100-51200. In this test, we shot indoors, adjusted the long-time exposure noise reduction in the camera to off, adjusted the noise reduction function level to 0, and adjusted the sensitivity value step by step to keep the exposure consistent and JPEG straight out. The following is a 100% enlarged screenshot area.
Through actual shooting, Fuji X- The performance of the T200 sensor is roughly the same as that of the previous Fuji X-T100. If it is not critical, the performance of the Fuji X-T200 before ISO6400 is acceptable.
Fujinon XC35mmF2 resolution test
There is also a Fujinon XC35mmF2 lens released along with the Fujinon X-T200. This Fujinon XC35mmF2 lens is equivalent to a 35mm specification focal length 52mm, the overall weight is only 130g, and the length is about 46.5mm. It has 6 groups of 9 lens groups, including 2 aspheric lenses, which can present clear and sharp images.

Thanks to the use of an internal focusing system with a stepping motor, the autofocus operation is fast and almost silent, and it can drive the focusing lens element quickly and accurately. The lens presents a silky and rich blur effect, while providing excellent portability and high-speed autofocus capabilities. Next we look at the resolution performance of this lens.
The red box is 100% screenshot area
Through actual shooting, the Fujinon XC35mmF2 lens maintains a high resolution quality as a whole. Whether it is fully opened or shrunk to the minimum aperture of f/16, the center image quality maintains good sharpness and contrast. Performance, and the edge image quality is slightly loose when the aperture is fully opened, but the usability is also very high. So just as I evaluated this lens before, it is a very suitable lens for hanging up.
The newly upgraded video is more suitable for Vlog
Compared with the Fuji X-T100, the upgrade of the Fuji X-T200 in terms of video is a leapfrog upgrade. This time, the Fuji X- The T200 supports up to 4K30p video shooting. The addition of this function also makes the Fuji X-T200 successfully enter the mainstream of current video shooting, and the full HD 120p video also adds more fun to the video shooting; In addition, the brand-new HDR video and “electronic image stabilization mode” also greatly enhance the convenience of this product in actual use.

Now I will focus on Fuji X-T200’s new electronic image stabilization mode and HDR video mode and its built-in Basic editing functions. Electronic anti-shake can make X-T200 ensure that the video is stable, clear and properly edited so that it can be easily shared with family and friends. The gyro sensor is located at the core of the new electronic anti-shake module, helping to reduce the impact of camera shake when recording video clips.

The new HDR video function enables recording of video clips in high-contrast situations It becomes easier and more practical. For example, in the above scene, after the HDR video function is turned on, the details of the dark part of the screen are well restored, so that the video shot can reduce our post-production space.
The built-in video editing function of the camera supports before sharing the video Edit and resize it. This means that the producer can edit the highlights in slow motion or share the highlights of 4K video from the camera to the smartphone without having to turn on the computer!

The focus of the Fuji X-T200 this time left a deep impression on me, compared to the previous upgrade of the Fuji X-T100 Obviously, the experience is good. In addition, the Fuji X-T200 also has 11 built-in film simulation modes. Images taken using these film simulation modes can present the effects and styles of actual film as a source of inspiration.
Before writing this point of view, I would like to ask you a question first, what type of camera do entry-level users need? Is it a good-looking one? Is it a good performance? Still an easy-to-operate…? In fact, in my opinion, these factors are not contradictory and can be integrated into one product. For example, the Fuji X-T200. Compared with the X-T100, the Fuji X-T200 not only has a certain change in appearance, but also has a greater improvement in continuous shooting, focusing, video, etc., personally recommend this The product is purchased as an entry-level user. In addition, the XC35mmF2 released by Fujifilm is also a rare on-hook street sweeping lens. Although the aperture is only f/2, it has very good optical quality. However, the prices of these two products have not been announced yet, I believe they will be listed. It will definitely bring us a surprise.
