Keeping pace with the times, Fujifilm’s new generation of mirrorless camera X-T200 upgrade analysis
In May 2018, Fuji introduced the X-T100, the first fashionable model of its X-T series of mirrorless cameras. In this product, Fuji combines retro and fashion to produce a product that combines the excellent design and functions of the X-T series. After a year and a half, in January 2020, Fuji officially launched the X-T100 successor model X-T200. As a new entry-level product of the XT series, what progress has the X-T200 and the previous generation X-T100 made? ?
Before we talk, let’s first look at Fuji X- What are the differences in parameters between T200 and the previous generation Fuji X-T100?
It is not difficult to find through the comparison table that the X-T200 is in the shooting function The progress of the above is obvious, and many improvements are also in line with the mainstream development direction of mirrorless cameras. Now, let’s start with the change in appearance.
In terms of appearance design, Fuji X-T200 continues the design style of X-T100, and the size of the fuselage is almost the same. The thickness of the fuselage is less than 8mm thicker than X-T100, but Surprisingly, its weight is almost 80g lighter.

From the front of the fuselage, the main changes of the X-T200 are raised in the handle area, while the X-T100 is a map, but Fuji is also designed for the X-T100 A detachable handle. That is, the detachable type is changed to the integrated type. The detachable type can provide more choices, and the integrated type is more traditional and practical, and both are very good designs.

Compared with the front of the fuselage, the X-T200 has a larger change on the back of the fuselage. The same large 3.5-inch roll-over screen as the X-A7, the keys are also minimal. The control is also borrowed from the X-A7, and the overall operation is completed through a 3.5-inch touch screen and lever. It also provides intuitive control and response 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 is equipped with ⌀3.5 mm headphone jack
In terms of interface, X-T200 also keeps pace with the times, equipped with a USB Type-C port, and the speed has reached USB 3.1 Gen1. The external headphone jack has also been changed from ⌀2.5 mm of X-T100 to ⌀3.5 mm which is more applicable.
After talking about the changes in appearance design, let’s talk about the changes and enhancements in the core components and functions of the Fuji X-T200.
Fuji X- T200 sensor
Although the Fuji X-T200 is still equipped with a 24.2 million effective pixel CMOS sensor, this sensor uses a copper wiring connection that can improve performance, and the data processing speed is 3.5 times faster than the X-T100 , And reduce the shutter jelly effect. At the same time, by using phase detection autofocus pixels on the entire sensor, the autofocus performance of the X-T200 is also significantly enhanced. The continuous shooting speed has also been increased to a maximum of 8 frames per second.
人脸/ Eye detection autofocus
By using sensor phase detection pixels on the entire sensor and improving the autofocus algorithm, the X-T200 can quickly achieve focus under various conditions. The updated face/eye detection auto focus can easily and quickly focus on a single person or a group photo of a friend. This function can be realized even if the LCD screen of the camera is turned over, and users can easily take selfies.
New Clear Filter Sharpness filter
The film simulation mode is a traditional retention feature of Fuji cameras. X-T200 supports 11 kinds of film simulation modes. Images taken with these film simulation modes can present the effect of actual film as a source of inspiration And style. At the same time, the X-T200 is also equipped with 20 creative filters, including the new Clear Filter, which can provide more creative possibilities for photographers who seek to express themselves in an artistic way.
high quality 4K And Full HD video recording mode
The biggest change in function is undoubtedly the X-T200’s video shooting performance. X-T200 can record 4K30p and Full HD 120p video. Its 4K video is obtained by first recording a 6K video without cropping and then downsampling, and it can also use film simulation mode to shoot the video to increase the stylization effect.
New HDR video Mode
X-T200 adds HDR video mode. The new HDR video function makes it easier and more practical to record video clips in high-contrast situations, and the built-in video editing function of the camera supports video sharing before sharing Edit and resize it.
Digital image stabilization Mode
In order to facilitate video shooting, Fuji X-T200 also adopts a new digital anti-shake mode, the gyro sensor installed in the camera body can help determine how to predict camera shake and apply digital image anti-shake Algorithm to achieve smoother video capture.
The above content is the Fuji X-T200 compared to the previous generation X-T100’s improvements and upgrades in appearance design, hardware assembly and carrying functions, hope to help you learn more about this brand new Fuji X series mirrorless camera. Later, we will introduce this product in more detail for everyone through evaluation, so stay tuned.
