NEW FAVOURITE COMBO: THE FUJI X-T20 + 56MM /1.2

Enlight288

Despite now owning the impressive Fuji X-H1 I still find it a bit bulky for my personal work. If you remember from my original blog, what initially attracted me to the Fuji mirrorless system was it’s retro, diminutive style. So as a backup camera I invested in the Fuji X-T20. Weighing a mere 383g and only measuring 118.4 mm x 82.8 mm x 41.4 mm the X -T20 is not only considerable smaller and lighter than the X-H1, it is even more compact than my previous camera the Fuji X-T1. However, don’t let it’s size deceive you  as it boosts a lot of the same features as the Fuji X-H1, For example:

  • 24.2MP APS-C X-Trans III sensor
  • X-Processor PRO
  • 200 to 12800 ISO (100, 25600, 51200 extended values)
  • hybrid autofocus system with 91 points
  • continuous shooting speeds (8fps mechanical / 14fps e-shutter)
  • shutter speeds (1/32000s with e-shutter / 1/8000s with mechanical shutter)

The one big downside to the Fuji X-T20, however, is the fact it lacks weather sealing and is made predominately of plastic, which explains it’s light weigh. However, my new favourite lens, the Fuji 56mm F1.2 R also lacks weather sealing so attaching it to the Fuji X-H1 would make no difference whatsoever (The lack of weather sealing, especially for their lens, is something I believe Fujifilm needs to address).

Below are some examples of my work with this killer combo. All shot wide open at ƒ1.2:
