A Look at the New X-S20 Mirrorless Camera and XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR Lens

The Fujifilm X-S20 mirrorless camera and XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR lens are here, and they bring with them the promise of great performance and excellent image quality. How do they hold up in practice? This excellent video takes a first look at what you can expect from both. 

Coming to you from Gajan Balan, this great video takes a first look at the new Fujifilm X-S20 mirrorless camera and XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR lens. Replacing the X-S10, the X-S20 comes with a nice gamut of features, including: 

  • Back-illuminated 26.1-megapixel sensor X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor
  • AI-based subject-detection autofocus with deep learning technology
  • 6.2K 30p 4:2:2 10-bit video and 1080p 240p video
  • 19 film simulation modes with different presets for specific subjects
  • Five-axis in-body image stabilization with up to 7 stops of compensation
  • F-Log2 with over 13 stops of dynamic range

Meanwhile, the XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR comes with: 

  • Three aspherical and two extra-low dispersion elements for lower levels of distortion and improved sharpness
  • Autofocus in as little as 0.02 seconds
  • Just over two inches (5 cm) long
  • 7.6 oz (215 g)
  • Dust- and weather-resistant construction

Check out the video above for Balan's thoughts on both.
