Fuji X80 Rumors

Fuji X80 coming rumor

According to latest rumors Fuji is planning to replace the year old X70 pro compact camera with Fuji X80. The Specification of the camera isn’t know yet but the camera is expected to be announced sometime in mid of 2017.

We expect Fuji will add the same X-Trans III sensor inside upcoming Fuji X80 camera (100F also have the same sensor). Will the announcement of X80 will bring down the sales of X100F ?. I don’t think so, it’s just like trim down version of the X100F camera. The X80 will sure attract new consumer base to Fujifilm, since under $1K range Fuji if giving out APS-C Size X-Trans sensor based compact camera whereas other companies remains limited to 1″ sensor only.

Breakthrough - World Fastest Organic CMOS Sensor Circuit

Fuji sensor circuit image

Fujifilm done something extraordinary right now by developing world fastest sensor circuit. As you can see image above the sensor circuit sit behind the pixel section of the sensor. The circuit is responsible of data transfer and in-short the circuit will redefine the camera still and video recording capability to a next level.

Structure of Fuji Organic Sensor

 

CMOS-sensor-circuit-image

As you can see in the image above of the Fuji Organic sensor where you can see the color filter layer separated with others.

Till now we haven’t seen any camera based on true organic sensor. But after the announcement of new Circuit chip we high hopes that we will sure see organic sensor based camera in near future.

That clearly indicates Fuji is moving in the direction to put Organic sensor on the production line. The previous generation of organic sensors were power hungry and Heat generation is also one of the biggest issue (see previous release here). That’s why Fuji raised the “temperature management“ issue in the current press release.

4th Generation of X-Trans Organic Sensor

Fuji has just announced Third generation of X-Trans sensor with the arrival of highly acclaimed X-Pro 2 camera. After that company used the same sensor inside Fuji X-T2, X-T20 and X100F.  Based on past footprints in every two to three year Fuji upgrades it’s camera sensors. If everything goes well then we can expect 4th gen of X-Trans sensor will be Organic and new Sensor Circuit sometime in 2018. That will sure raise the image quality bar of Fuji cameras.

More Frames, Better Display and More…

Fuji X-T2 features high resolution LCD screen and maximum shutter speed of Fuji film xt2 is also more compared to the X-T20 as well as the continuous shooting of  X-T2 is approx 14 frames per second whereas the continuous shooting speed of the X-T20 camera remains limited to 8 frames per second only. The difference is very big if you are a sports shooter since you are losing 6 extra frames per second with the X-T20 camera.

No Joystick in Fuji X-T20

Yes, the Fuji X-T20 camera doesn’t have Joystick like the X-T2 camera. So, this features doesn’t add a penny to image quality of the camera but it will sure help you to navigate your menus and select your desired AF points in a very easy manner.

Video

Well now let’s talk about the recording limit of both the camera.  The recording time of both the camera is limited to 10 minutes in 4K mode, whereas if you use batter grip with your X-T2 it allow you to record 30 minutes video. If you select Full HD mode them both camera can record 15 minutes continues video.

Display

Display of the camera are different and the major difference you will notice after getting in your hands is ouch sensitive display of the X-T2 camera and the X-T20 camera doesn’t have touch display.

Hence the Fuji X-T2 camera allow you to touch and shoot subjects on the go and helps you to navigate camera more quickly and easily compared to the X-T20 camera.

Despite of having such big difference in the price of both the camera you will get same image quality from both.  camera  features same sensor and image processor inside.

Verdict:

If you have pocket full of bucks then get X-T2 camera since it’s a marvelous machine, otherwise the trim-out version of the X-T2 / X-T20 will fullfill all your needs with bit of sacrifice in overall speed, Weather sealing and

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.
