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 letdown. Thankfully, Fujifilm has put a lot of work into making the X-T200 both more responsive and full-featured.
- 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 is now available 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 comes in what Fujifilm calls dark silver, silver and champagne gold.
What’s new and how it compares
While the X-T200’s design has updated, what’s really changed is what’s inside the camera.
Body, controls and handling
Changes to the design of the camera are both good and bad, but using the X-T200 is a similar experience to that of other Fujifilm cameras.
Is the X-T200 as easy to use as a smartphone?
The large display and touch-based interface on the X-T200 makes it very smartphone-like. Does that make taking photos as easy as on your phone?
See how well the X-T200’s updated sensor performs against its peers.
As of early 2020, the X-T200 has Fujifilm’s latest AF system. While we can’t currently fully test the system, we still have plenty of impressions to share.
Unlike its predecessor, the X-T200 has ‘proper’ 4K video, plus cool features like a ‘digital gimbal’ and HDR movies.
The X-T200 faces tough competition from Canon and Sony, as well as its big brother, the X-T30. Is it the best choice?
