The Fujifilm X-T200 is an inexpensive mirrorless camera that uses the company’s X-mount. It replaces the X-T100, a camera that seemed promising when it was announced, but whose sluggish performance was a big letdown. Thankfully, Fujifilm has put a lot of work into making the X-T200 both more responsive and full-featured.

Key specifications:

  • 24MP APS-C sensor with Bayer color filter and faster readout speeds
  • Updated hybrid autofocus system with 425 phase-detect points
  • Refined ergonomics, lighter body
  • 3.5″, 16:9 fully articulating LCD with 2.76 million dots
  • Easy-to-use touch menus
  • 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder with 0.62x magnification
  • 8 fps burst shooting
  • New ‘Clarity’ effect
  • Oversampled 4K video with no crop
  • Audio level controls
  • Microphone and headphone inputs (latter via USB-C adapter)
  • New Digital Gimbal and HDR video options

The X-T200 will available in late February for $699 body-only or $799 with the XC 15-45 F3.5-5.6 OIS power zoom lens. This lens has received some cosmetic changes: the black finish is more matte and the zoom/focus dials have been improved, but it’s optically the same as previous models.

For those looking for an inexpensive prime lens, the new $199 XC 35mm F2 might be what your’e after.

The camera itself will come in what Fujifilm calls dark silver, silver and champagne gold.
