Fujifilm is announcing two new cameras today, though they will be very familiar to anyone that follows the company’s product lines. The new X100F and X-T20 are successors to the X100T and X-T10, respectively, and feature familiar designs with the new sensors and processors that debuted with the higher-end X-Pro2 and X-T2 last year. Both cameras will be available in the US starting next month.
The fixed-lens X100F (“F” stands for “fourth,” as it’s the fourth X100 series camera, in case you were wondering) carries over many of the features of its predecessor, including the clever and innovative three-mode hybrid electronic and optical viewfinder. It maintains the 23mm f/2 lens and basic overall design from the earlier X100 cameras, but gains the integrated shutter speed and ISO dial and rear joystick from the X-Pro2. Fujifilm says it also redesigned the controls of the X100F to all be accessible from the right side, to better enable one-handed shooting with the camera.
In addition to gaining the new 24-megapixel X-Trans III CMOS sensor, the X100F now has 91 phase detection focus points (up from 49) that cover 40 percent of the imaging area. The X100F will be available in silver or black at launch for $1,299.95.
