Fujifilm Announced the X20 Premium Digital Camera Featuring a New 2/3-Inch X-Trans CMOS II Sensor, Now Available for Pre-Order at B&H

NYC, NY, Jan 09, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- The FUJIFILM X20 digital camera achieves improvements in reduced noise, as well as higher resolution, thanks to its new X-Trans CMOS II Sensor. By combining the X-Trans filter array and removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) the advanced sensor and processor improve resolution and reduce noise for amazing images.

View an in depth B&H Photo full line of Fujifilm CES 2013 Camera Announcements The Fuji X20 also incorporates an advanced optical viewfinder to provide real-time, eye-level monitoring. This viewfinder utilizes the thin, transparent Digital Trans Panel for displaying exposure and camera information over the optical viewfinder to enable full-time viewing through the optical viewfinder while being able to modify camera settings. For playback and review of imagery, a 2.8" 460k-dot LCD is also available on the rear of the camera. Menu navigation is done through an intuitive graphical interface, which can be further refined when using the Q (Quick Menu) Button to quickly access essential camera settings.

Full HD movie recording is supported up to 1920 x 1080 at 60fps with a 36Mbps bit-rate for clear, fluid-looking videos. Zoom and focus can be manually controlled during recording, and audio levels, white balance settings, and Film Simulation modes can also be applied to refine the overall appearance of ones movies. Film Simulation modes make use of Fujifilm's history of producing both negative and slide films, and allows one to apply those films' characteristics to a digital imagery to better suit the intended look.

Housing all of the camera's technologies is a durable, yet lightweight die-cast magnesium body. Precision-milled metal dials and a focus ring give tactile satisfaction during use and the synthetic leather wrap affords protection to the body while also providing a high quality overall appearance.

Advanced Optical Viewfinder The Fujifilm X20 integrates an advanced optical viewfinder that is comprised of two aspherical lenses, two glass prisms, and other optical elements to provide the utmost clarity for real-time finding and image composing. This finder also integrates a thin, transparent Digital Trans Panel for displaying focus area, shutter speed, and other exposure information in the viewfinder. This allows one to always keep the eye to the finder while being able to monitor camera settings at the same time.

Fujinon 28-112mm f/2.0-2.8 Lens The built-in 4x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-112mm with a fast maximum aperture of f/2.0-2.8. The inclusion of aspheric, extra-low dispersion, and high-refractive index glass elements helps to reduce the appearance of aberrations throughout the zoom range while also significantly contributing to overall image sharpness. Lens elements are treated with a multi-layer HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to minimize lens flare and ghosting while shooting for greater light transmittance and contrast within imagery.

The metal lens barrel is used to manually control the zoom magnification as well as control the on/off power setting of the Fuji X20 camera. This intuitive control method gives the ability to quickly turn on the X20 camera to record imagery while holding the camera at an eye-level position.

Benefitting the lens and especially low-light shooting, a lens-shift type optical image stabilization (OIS) system is integrated into the design to counter the effects of camera shake up to four stops. This OIS system also enhances image sharpness when working as closely as 0.4" / 1cm in Super Macro mode.

B&H Photo Video is currently accepting pre-orders with free shipping for the Fujifilm X20 Silver as well as for the Fuji X20 Black.
