1. Sensor

If you talk about the sensor only between these two camera then the Fuji X-A5 camera features large APS-C sensor with 24 megapixels resolution, on the other side we have Olympus OMD E-M10 Mark III which features a bit is smaller micro four third forward sensor 16 megapixels resolution.

So, with Fuji X-A5 camera you get larger sensor with more resolution, Fujifilm X-A5 camera also features hybrid autofocus system that is better in some way compared to the M10 Mark III contrast based system.

2. AF System

Yes the Fuji do offer a better auto-focusing system compared to Olympus. But with more AF points the Olympus frame coverage is more compared to Fuji. But at the end we have Fujifilm X A5 camera is built with phase detect autofocusing points inside the sensor, where as the Olympus E-M10 Mark III autofocus in system is limited to contrast detect Technology.

3. Continuous Shooting Speed

If we talk about continuous shooting a speed then theFuji X-A camera buffer is limited to 10 shots only with a speed of 6 frames per second, whereas Olympus E-M10 Mark III camera features a speed of 8.6 frames per second.

4. Video

Fuji X-A5 video mode is limited to 15 frames per second with time limit of 5 minutes, but Olympus doesn’t have such limitations with the Olympus E-M10 Mark III, the camera records 4K videos 30 frames per second for 29 minutes.

5. Image stabilization inside E-M10

The Olympus E-M10 mark III offers 5 axis image stabilization that will help all the time when you needed, even if you are creating serious vlooging videos you don’t have to spend extra cash on gimble.

The image sharing of Fuji X-A5 is bit tedious due to bluetooth only, the camera Olympus E-M10 mark III WiFi does fast image and video sharing.

Verdict

Fuji X-A5 is good for still shooting only whereas the Olympus E-M10 III is highly recommended if you creating high quality video and also a decent camera for still work.

ISO Range
before we begin let me tell you that the sensor inside the Panasonic GH5S is completely new.
The camera features 10 Megapixel sensor with ISO sensitivity starting from 80 to 204800, and the standard ISO range of the camera is 100 to 51200.

Being said that it clearly indicates that the Panasonic GH5S will going to create more cleaner images during low light conditions compared to the Panasonic GH 5 camera. Not any cleaner images Panasonic GH 5S is also optimised for low light video performance and Dual Native ISO also introduced to cut down the extra noise.

Dual Native ISO
and Panasonic introduced dual native ISO inside the Panasonic GH 5S camera which was first introduced with Panasonic S35
The dual native ISO range is used to cut down the extra amount of noise generated while recording video or still at low light conditions.

Multi-aspect sensor
Panasonic introduce multi aspect sensor so you can now shoot 16:9, 17:9, 4:3 and 2:3.wide formats.

AutoFocus System
The autofocusing system of both the camera remains same. both camera features a 225 points based DFD autofocusing system. but the Panasonic GH5S comes with slight improvement in low light detection range. Panasonic GH5S Camera AF detection improved one stop more (+5EV vs -4EV) compared to the Panasonic GH 5 camera.

14 Bit continuous shooting
The camera offers 14bit of RAW shooting but at 11 frames per second without AF support and when you use AFC mode continuous AF the speed slows down to 7fps.

Cinematic 4K
cinematic / DCI 4K also being introduced inside the Panasonic GH5S camera. Panasonic GH5 do offer standard / UHD 4K video recording but one step ahead Panasonic GH5S has become the first consumer level camera to introduced 4K cinematic video which carry a bit more resolution compared to the standard 4K video of the GH5 camera.

240 Frames @ Full HD
After that we have improvement in the frame rate of full HD video recording. with full HD video recording you get to 240 frames per second with the Panasonic GH5S camera.

Pre-installed Vlog
Yes the Panasonic GH 5S comes with pre installed Vlog and for that you have to pay extra money when you get for Panasonic GH5 camera.

Panasonic 4KHDR and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma)
You get 4K HDR with HLG in Panasonic GH5S with Firmware version 2.0. Panasonic GH5S
Comes with preinstalled.

No Built in Image stabilization
Panasonic GH5S doesn’t carry in built-in Image stabilization. So, you have to depend upon the OSS lenses only. BTW, the Panasonic GH5 carry Dual IS when sensor based IS sync with Lens based IS.So you get 5+Stops of IS with the Panasonic GH5 camera.

Final Word

The Panasonic GH5S camera is made for shooting in low-light environment. So, absence of IS will become a big issue for few filmkaers and lifestyle vloggers. But, overall the camera is more video centric compared to Panasonic GH5S.

Specification comparison between Canon 5D Mark 4 and Nikon D850 camera

Nikon D850 camera latest  full frame camera for professional users features very impressive specification, the sensor of the camera uses BSI CMOS Technology. On the other side the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera features dual pixel CMOS AF sensor which enables Fast AF while shooting at Live view and video mode.

Nikon D850 vs Canon 5D Mark IV

Nikon d850 camera features 47 Megapixel resolution Whereas the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera features at 30 MP sensor.

Most importantly you are getting more resolution inside Nikon body without sacrificing the low light performance of the camera.  Despite of having such insane amount of resolution the Nikon d850 camera BSI CMOS Sensor still manages to offer standard ISO sensitivity of ISO 64-25600 whereas in expandable sensitivity mode the camera can be boosted up to 32-102400. The Canon 5D Mark IV standard ISO range is 100-32000 and expandable ISO range goes upto 50-102400.

While looking at the max ISO range of both the camera and the type of technology used while developing the sensor we do expect that Nikon d850 camera will give better performance in low light condition. But at the same time we have to wait for the real world reviews before commenting on the image quality of the camera.

Autofocus

As we all know that the DSLR camera have two different auto-focusing sections

  1. Viewfinder [Both system uses Phase AF Module and Nikon is more advance]
  2. While using Live view or Video mode – Canon uses Dual pixel CMOS AF and Nikon D850 still uses the Contrast based AF System

As we all know that all DSLR camera uses two different styles of AF system.  while using the viewfinder the Phase autofocus system of the DSLR gets activated and in that particular section Nikon becomes extremely superior since it uses the 153-Point AF System of Nikon D5 camera so if you are Someone who likes using viewfinder than Nikon d80 camera is perfect for you.

If you have a habit of using display screen while shooting your subjects  then go with 5D Mark 4 Camera since it features dual pixel CMOS auto focusing system, system helps to track and lock subjects in no time.

Autofocus is the section where Nikon is lagging behind continuously,  I wish Nikon also implemented some kind of hybrid sensor Technology inside the newly announced Nikon d850 camera.

Continuous shooting speed

The continuous shooting speed about the camera is 7 frames per second.,  but you have to keep in mind the resolution difference in both the camera (30 vs 47).  Canon 5D Mark IV is shooting 30 megapixels @ 7 frames per second whereas Nikon d850 camera shoots 47 megapixels @ 7 frames per second Who is directly indicates that the processor used inside the Nikon body is better compared to Canon.

When the battery grip is added  the continuous shooting speed on the Nikon d850 camera boosted up to 9 frames per second by maintaining the same resolution.

 

Dynamic range

The dynamic range of a camera is one of the most important thing for a photographer. We have already seen the performance of Nikon D810 camera which is still ranks as one of the best camera at DXO Lab with 14.8 score. And according to latest reports the Nikon D850 have same Dynamic range as of D810. That clearly indicates that Nikon  will going to lead in this category.

 

Video

Nikon d850 camera records video by utilising the entire sensor you can also say that it does a full pixel readout while creating a 4K video, But canon 5D Mark IV 4K video is created at 1.7 X crop mode. That means Canon is not utilising the potential of the 30 megapixel dual pixel CMOS sensor.

4 years from now the 5D series was known for its  cinema recording capability,  but now you can see a previously announced Canon 1dx mark 2 camera can record 4K videos @ 60 frames per second whereas the recently announced 5D Mark 4 camera does a 4K video at 1.7 X crop mode and remains limited to 30 frames per second.

it clearly indicates that Canon is pushing video features back in dslrs to save it EOS cinema series. That will not save EOS Cinema sales, it will end up loosing the DSLRs sale.

GPS

Nikon DSLRs doesn’t have but Canon do have it, Travel photographers need GPS to catch the location with exif info.

Pricing

The price of the Nikon D850 is $200 less compared to Canon 5D Mark IV.

Conclusion

We recommend you to get Nikon since Nikon D850 camera features class leading core specification which is superior compared to Canon 5D Mark IV,  one major area where Nikon is lagging behind is Hybrid AF Support (also they don’t have built in GPS). Canon 5D Mark IV features DPAF Sensor and light-weight compact body compared to D850.But at the end, I personally prefer image quality over Hybrid AF support.

Sony A9 vs Canon 1DX Mark II

Sony A9 camera image

We are comparing Canon 1dx mark 2 camera with newly announced Sony A9 mirrorless camera. But, before comparison between Sony A9 and Canon 1DX Mark II, you should know that Sony A9 is the ultimate mirrorless camera ever built by Sony. The Sony A9 camera features newly developed stacked CMOS sensor. The other major improvement is introduction of ultra high-density auto focusing system that composed of 693 points and covers 93% of the screen.  ISO range of the camera is also very good despite of looking at the real world comparison and analysis we can say that, we can say that the image quality of this camera will surpass the image quality of existing A7 R2 camera, which is best in it class.

 

Let’s talk about the design difference between both the camera .

Canon 1dx Mark II is little bit bulky heavy compared to the A9 camera. We do feel that light and smaller cameras are easy carry in long run,  despite being smaller  the Sony A9 features all the extensive manual controls that allow users should get  to compose and click a perfect shot.

Looking at the top panel of both the camera you will going to miss the extra information display panel that you get with the Canon 1dx mark 2 camera. The top LCD display of the DSLR give detailed information about the DSLR settings all the time,  and it has become a habit of many professionals to look at the top information display unit every time while adjusting the setting.

From design and weight comparison it seems to be Sony A9 will be more superior and easy to use compared to Canon 1dx Mark II in long run,  but we also understand that digital camera design or weight doesn’t have any affect on the image quality. Even a light and compact camera can produce better image quality than heavy camera with more complex design.

Sony-A9-vs-traditional-DSLR

Sensor size comparison (Stacked / Dual layer vs Traditional)

The sensor size of Sony A9 camera is slightly smaller than Canon 1dx Mark II.  Despite being smaller the Sony A9 camera features 24 Megapixel FF sensor where is Canon 1dx Mark II features 20 MP sensor.  it’s all known that Extra 4 megapixel will going to help during large prints and crops whenever it required. so, it’s A9 slight advantage over Canon 1dx mark 2 camera.

Technology used inside the image sensor of both the camera

Sony A9–  Sony A9 is world first camera to feature Stacked full frame CMOS sensor. The sensor of Sony A9 camera is composed of two different layers the first layer of the sensor is pixels that  absorb the light from the lens. The second layer of the Sony A9 sensor is composed of buffer memory and frontend LSI Processing Unit.

Canon 1dx mark 2 camera uses traditional  full frame sensor design.  But despite of using a traditional CMOS sensor design in its year old Canon 1dx mark 2 you get one more stop ISO range with Canon. The ISO range is one stop ahead then recently announced Sony A9 Mirrorless flagship camera.

Sony A9 camera Does 20x faster read out compared to Sony A7r II camera.

Canon 1DX Mark II

AF System (699 vs 61)

Before we begin we must know that the Canon 1dx Mark II DSLR is based on two different types of AF systems. Yes, it is true that every DSLR camera of Canon uses a hybrid sensor as well as a dedicated Phase AF module inside it.

When you are using viewfinder of Canon 1dx mark 2 camera then its Phase AF  module composed of 61 points become active and when you are using live view display of the camera OR you are recording a video from your Canon 1dx mark 2 camera then dual pixel CMOS a system of Canon 1dx mark 2 camera gets activated.

Dual pixel AF – Canon 1dx mark II camera utilizes sensor based dual pixel CMOS AF technology divides every pixels into two sub pixel.  Then every sub pixels works in synchronisation to calculate the lens drive required to achieve Autofocus. So, if you look at Canon 1dx Mark II system then in 20 million pixel sensor each pixel Divided into two sub pixels that works to achieve auto focusing quickly.  The best thing about dual pixel CMOS AF system, there are no dead pixel dedicated for AF.

If we compare both the camera AF System based on specification sheet then for sure Sony A9 auto focusing system is far better than Canon 1dx mark 2 camera,  Sony A9 camera 693 AF points covers 93% off the screen.  The speedy subjects will remain under AF coverage,  and with  continuous shooting speed of 20 frames per second, Sony can grab 6 more (14 vs 16) frame compared to Canon 1dx mark 2 camera sports mode.  Sony does have Upper Hand  in AF system.

5-axis-IS-image

Image Stabilization System (In body IS vs None)

One of the biggest advantage that Sony A9 user get is built in 5 Axis image stabilization system.  currently no DSLR either Canon or Nikon features built-in image stabilization system just like Sony Alpha series mirrorless camera.

Using a built-in 5 axis image stabilization system works very well while you are shooting video as well still shots..So, either you are using native lenses with Sony A9 camera or you are using third party lenses, the Sony A9 camera the five Axis image stabilization system always active.

The five Axis images stabilization system really helps when you need slow shutter speed during low light condition. Sony A9 IS effective up to 5 stops,  which will going to really help you  when you are shooting a wedding or any night event with your fixed Prime lenses OR 24 to 70 standard zoom lens.  If you pair your Sony A9 camera with IS lenses then they will work in synchronization with each other.

15-fps-image

Continuous shooting (20 vs 14)

Continuous shooting (20 vs 14) speed is the section where Sony A9 outperforms all the current flagship  DSLR and mirrorless cameras.  As the specifications says Sony A9 is capable to shoot continuous still shots of 20 frames per second at full resolution with continuous autofocus in support.

Canon 1dx Mark II camera remains limited to 14 frames per second while shooting with autofocus support. While Canon 1dx mark 2 camera can also shoot 16 frames per second without any autofocus support.

If we compare both the cameras in Sony A9 offers you extra 6 frames per second with continuous AF support, whereas Canon 1dx Mark II remains limited to 14 frames and can be pushed upto  16 frames per second without AF support.

6K vsK image

4K video

Canon 1dx Mark II camera offers you to record DCI 4K videos at (4096 x 2160) higher resolution compared to Sony A9 @ 60 frames per second whereas the Sony A9 camera records 4K at bit lower resolution compared to 1dx Mark II limited 30 frames per second.

The other side of the story is you get 5 axis IS support while recording video from your A9 camera as well as 699 AF points covers 93% of the video screen that will allow you to do blazing fast AF in no time.

The biggest advantage of Sony A9 camera is it does Full-pixel readout (6K) with no pixel binning. Sony A9 Records 6K video and then camera system does a lossless comparison to make 4K. Hence in-turn you get excellent dynamic range, less noise as well as well as better color contrast.

 

Other advantages of Sony A9

  • Let’s talk about some other advantages of the recently announced Sony A9 camera .
  • One of the biggest advantage you get is articulating display screen with the  A9 camera whereas the Canon 1dx mark 2 features fixed LCD display.
  • We have already mentioned that Sony A9 camera is lightweight, 673 gvs 1530g
  • Price difference – Sony A9 is way more affordable compared to Canon 1DX Mark II camera, $4,498 vs $5,999.

Other noticeable advantage of Canon 1DX Mark II

  • Canon 1DX Mark II camera high resolution display screen, you get more battery life on single recharge compared to Sony A9.
  • Shortage of High-end lenses – many professional who are already using Canon Lenses and DSLRs may feel suffocative. Since Canon have 190+ professional FF lenses whereas Sony remains limited to approx 30 lenses only.

Conclusion:  Sony A9 is a Marvelous Fullframe camera and it’s overall core specification is better than of Canon 1DX mark II camera. Being said that, Sony still have limited number of high-end lenses as well as global support and service centers. If you are a looking for world best mirrorless then go an get Sony A9.  Canon user you can get FotodioX to use EF/EF-S lenses on Sony A9 camera.

Before we begin let’s talk about the design

Let’s start the comparison of Nikon D7200 and Nikon D500. Nikon D7500 camera is slimmer, thinner and smaller compared to the Nikon D500.

In general small cameras are easy to carry and they are more comfortable when you have to hold them for a long time. Nikon D7500 also weight less than Nikon D500 approx 220 gram lighter then the Nikon D500.

Sensor of Nikon D500

Nikon-D500-sensor-image

Nikon D7500 camera uses same sensor as of Nikon D500 camera, hence the size and type of sensor is exactly same. Not only that the image processor inside the camera is also same and hence we expect Nikon D7500 will deliver same image quality as of Nikon D500.

ISO range

The ISO range of the camera is also range is also same as of Nikon D500. The reason behind the same ISO range is Nikon D500 camera uses same sensor and image processor. And hence you get same image quality as of Nikon D500 from Nikon Nikon D7500, we can also called Nikon D7500 as a lite Nikon D500.

Low pass filter

Both camera doesn’t’ have low pass filter inside it, hence we expect both camera will deliver astounding images without an issue.

Image Stabilization: This is the first time Nikon introduce in-body image stabilization inside a DSLR. But keep in mind it’s a electronic Image Stabilization system only available for Full HD video mode. So if you need crisp and clear pictures or better 4K you must get VR lenses.

Auto-focus:  The Auto-focus of the camera, The Nikon D500 features Multi-CAM 20K 153-Point AF System whereas the Nikon D7500 features Multi-CAM 3500 II DX 51-Point AF Sensor same as of Nikon D7200.

The Nikon D500 features advance AF system composed of 153-Point AF System, 99 cross type whereas Nikon D7500 camera features 51-Point All Cross-Type points only. Without a doubt the Nikon D500 features a better AF system with more coverage so you never miss any AF frame even using continuous burst while panning your camera.

Hence in the AF department we haven’t seen any improvements. The AF system of the camera remains same as of its predecessor.

Continuous shooting speed: The Nikon D7500 features continuous shooting speed of 8 fps whereas Nikon D500 is capable to record images at 10fps. So, Nikon D500 is offering you three extra frames per second. If you are a sports shooter then you will sure know the value of 3 extra frames in a second.

Other feature

Being a high-end camera the Nikon D500 do feature high resolution display and more battery life. on the other side the Nikon D7500 is bit lighter as well as smaller.

loss of the 2nd SD card slot: The biggest loss in my view, Nikon decided to cut one SD card slot, earlier version of D7XXX series camera do have dual SD cards slots.

Verdict:  Nikon D7500 is a lite Nikon D500, you will get same image quality since Nikon used Nikon D500 sensor inside Nikon D7500. But under $1200 price tag you are getting industry best APS-C sensor that supports 1.6Million ISO. We highly recommend you to get this camera.

Design Difference:

Overall Difference: Before we begin let’s see that design difference between these two camera. The Canon 77D camera looks exactly similar to Canon 80d camera if you look from design perspective.  but if you’re going to take for the camera in your hands then you are going to see that Canon 80D is little heavier and bigger than Canon 77D.

Less Weight: The Canon 77D body is approx 190 grams lighter than the Canon 80d body. I always prefer lighter camera’s with bright aperture lenses for shooting an event. Heavy camera can cause serious hand pain at the end. Since, you can’t stop your shoot in the middle despite of having weight pain.

Top LCD in 77D: On the top side of Canon 77D then you do have the TOP LCD display unit as you have seen in Canon 80d camera.  But you should also know that few manual controls are missing from Canon 77D when compared to Canon 80d camera.

Features Absent in Canon 77D

  1. Few Physical Buttons on the Top are missing: If you have used Canon 80d then the first thing you will going to notice in canon  77D camera,  just after that of LCD screen that small AF button is missing. The Canon 80d camera allows you to select single shot autofocus, or AI Fous or AI servo easily.
  2. The next button  you’re going to miss in canon 77D camera is auto focusing area selection button, present in between the mode dial button and the shutter button of the camera in canon 80d DSLR. Well, this button button allows you to select the desirable AF area of your screen quickly. well you can also do in the Canon 77D camera since it do offer touch screen while shooting at live
  3. Pentaprism is absent: To reduce the making charge of the camera canon added a Pentamirror viewfinder inside the Canon EOS 77D whereas the Canon 80d camera features Pentaprism viewfinder which are generally Brighter and costly than pentamirror viewfinder. The Canon 77D coverage decreases up to 5% which is not detectable with a new man eye. But it’s also fact that Canon 80d features better viewfinder compared to Canon 77D.
  4. Environmental Sealing is also absent in Canon 77D camera, hence you to be careful while using camera in rain or dust.
  5. Headphone port also missing in 77D: You will going to miss headphone port in the Canon 77D camera The Other major thing that you will really going to miss is environmental Seailing in Canon 77D camera.

Longer Battery Life in 80D

After design part comparison we should talk about the battery life of both the DSLRs. Battery life is really important isn’t it. Canon 80d camera offers and 960 shots where is cancel 77D camera offers 600 shots battery life. Now consider if you are shooting an event and your camera and dies after 600 shots, what you are going to do? it is a big problem isn’t it.  So, whether in 960 shots of 600 shots, you will never going to guess the amount of images you are going to take in a particular event. My recommendation is to always keep active battery pack with you . For Comparison point of you Canon 80d offer better battery life compared to its competitor.

If you think that you are really going to miss these features in the Canon 77D camera and that already available in Canon 80d camera.

Canon 77D carry a Different Sensor ?

Every website saying that saying that Canon 77D features same sensor as of Canon 80d camera, is it really true? let’s find out.

Sensor: If you look at the physical sensor size of both the DSLR. Then you will going to notice that the sensor size of the Canon 77D camera is bit smaller than Canon 80D sensor size. And due to the difference in sensor size the sensor pixel area of Canon 80d is approx 7% larger than the sensor pixel area of Canon 77D camera.

Shooting Speed: Yes there is a slight difference in continuous shooting is speed up for the camera.  canon 80d offers 1 FPS faster shooting compared to Canon 770. Canon 80d can shoot 7 frames per second whereas Canon 77D remains limited to 6 frames per second.

Canon 77D offer better ISO Range: Now before we discuss the maximum ISO range difference between both the DSLR. Let me inform you that I have seen the highest test images of both the camera and I am not able to spot any with difference between them despite of being a professional photographer from 10 years. If you look at the specification sheet of Canon 770 camera it offers a user range upto 51200 where is Canon 80d Raymond limited to 25600 ISO range.

Now let’s talk about the usable ISO range of these types of APS-C sensor camera for professional. Believe me you can’t go beyond ISO 6400 or more for professional use in both the camera.  After that you will going to witness noticeable amount of noise in the images and that increases with every stop. Practically Canon 77D offer one stop more high ISO range when compared to Canon 80d. But when you going to compare High ISO test images of both camera you barely notice any difference between them.

Price Difference: The Canon 80D will cost you $100 more, it’s not too high when you are getting lot’s of feature with the camera.

Conclusion:  If you don’t need environmental sealing, microphone port and longer batter, then Canon 77D is the best camera for you right now. You should go and buy the affordable 77D pro camera since the image quality of both the DSLRs are exactly same. You can spend $200 on getting 50mm F1.8 STM lens for shooting portraits.

New Sensor image

New Sensor

We have some major difference between the first and second generation of these cameras film X T20 camera features third generation of X-Trans CMOS sensor that features more AF points, resolution by maintaing the same ISO range.

With the help of new sensor you can select from 91 to 325 AF points. Hence you have approx entire area of the screen under AF. And hence you can spot and track your subject in no time.

With combination of latest XProcessor PRO camera the camera offers you continues shooting speed of 8 fps while using mechanical shutter and 14fps while using electronic shutter.

But, the top continues shooting speed of X-T10 camera remains limited to 8fps.

Extended Standard ISO Range

Fuji X-T10 camera standard ISO range is 200-6400 whereas the Fuji X-T20 features ISO range of 200-12800. The high ISO range of both the camera remains same.

Advance AF system:

By redesigning the AF algorithm from the ground up, the X-T20 can now autofocus more accurately on points of light, low-contrast objects and subjects with fine details such as bird feathers and animal fur. The read speed of the Contrast AF system, which covers approx. 85% of the entire frame, has been doubled*7 compared to the previous model to enable faster and more accurate autofocusing. During video recording, the AF point transitions smoothly to track a moving subject to create natural looking footage.

Shutter

The vertical grip of the X-T2 camera allow you to use mechanical shutter upto 11fps. Whereas there the X-T20 doesn’t have such facility. Despite of this slight difference the shutter speed of both the camera is almost identical 14fps with the electronic shutter or 8fps with the mechanical shutter.

4K video recording (4K vs Full HD)

The use of Fujifilm’s unique sensor and image processing engine enables both Full HD (1920 x 1080) and 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording. Set the Drive Dial to “Movie” and select the 4K Video mode in the menu to record 4K video at the high bitrate of 100Mbps. Full HD video can be recorded at 59.94 fps, 50 fps, 29.97 fps, 25 fps, 24 fps and 23.98 fps.

Verdict:

The Fuji X-T20 features a lot of big and small upgrades compared to the predecessor.  Hence, we recommend you to get the Fuji X-T20 camera over X-T10.

New Sensor and AF System

We aren’t digging too much details here but as you know that the X-T1 uses IInd generation of X-trans sensor which features 16 MP resolution and only 49 AF points. Whereas, the III gen of X-Trans CMOS AF sensor carried a lot of design upgrades as well as new AF and image processing algorithm is implemented to outperform other flagship APS-C cameras of current generation.

The new sensor’s enhanced signal processing technology has even greater control over digital noise. Improved ISO sensitivity means ISO12800, only available as an extended ISO on the X-T10, is now available as a regular ISO option.

AF System

As we have already discussed that new sensor features more resolution and  325 AF points / you can select your AF points from 91 to 325 so you have a dense screen covered entirely with AF points. Whereas, the X-T1 limits itself with 49 AF points only.

4K Mode

The X-T20 is capable of recording both Full HD and 4K video using the X Series’ famous Film Simulation effects. Full HD video can be recorded at 59.94 fps, 50 fps, 29.97 fps, 25 fps, 24 fps and 23.98 fps. The X-T1 camera limited to Full HD videos at 60 FPS only.

ACROS mode

The Film Simulation function now features the ACROS mode. Using the X-Processor Pro’s advanced processing capability, the mode offers smooth gradation, deep blacks and beautiful textures to create monochrome images superior to the standard Monochrome mode.

Verdict:

We have seen a lot of upgrades in X-T20 camera, the X-T20 features new sensor and image processor and we are sure that the X-T20 camera is sully capable to give you BETTER IMAGE quality compared to X-T1. And hence, we recommend you to get the X-T20 camera over X-T1.
