Fuji beefs up mirrorless range with the X-T200

Affordable new model packs 24-MP and vari-angle LCD…

Fuji has once again proved its commitment to the mirrorless camera market by launching another new model. The X-T200 takes over from Fuji’s popular X-T100 and, while is at the more entry-level end of Fuji’s offerings, there’s still plenty to get excited about.

Packing 24-megapixels (the same pixel count as the X-T100), the new model is incredibly lightweight, tipping the scales at just 370g (80g lighter than the X-T100), making it suitable for both travel photographers tight on space and Vloggers, who will appreciate the massive 3.5-inch LCD that features a vari-angle design.

The latest sensor pairs up with the processor to offer a faster burst rate than the X-T100 (8 frames per second compared to 6) and improved autofocus functions including Face/Eye-detection AF – perfect for those who love to shoot portraiture. Selfies are also possible when you flip the LCD around, too.

Along with all the stills features, the X-T200 sports video specs that are sure to get film-makers excited. In fact Fuji explains ‘The X-T200 reads data from all the pixels on the sensor and uses the ample information equivalent to 6K to produce 4K video, resulting in low-noise and premium-quality footage.’ This delivers 4K video at 30p and the camera can also shoot Full HD at 60p or 120p to create slow motion sequences.

Those photographers who love to get creative in-camera will appreciate the 11 Film Simulation modes to give your imagery a very stylised look without the need of Photoshop and the X-T200 is available in three colour combos; silver, dark silver or champagne gold.

Expected to ship from late February, the X-T200 (paired with a 15-45mm kit lens) carries a price tag of $799/£749.
