Today Fujifilm has announced the X-T200, XC 35mm f/2 and a new GF zoom lens – the 45-100mm
The new X-T200 is an ‘Xcellent’ entry-level, interchangeable lens camera. Inside is a newly designed 24.2MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor for ensuring top image quality performance (even in low-light). A new phase-detection AF system makes for fast, accurate autofocus. The X-T200 is also equipped with a face/eye tracking AF mode, which can be used alongside the fully articulating screen for selfies or vlogging.
The X-T200 can shoot 4K30p and slow motion in HD up to 120fps. If you would rather capture the action using stills instead, then the camera can shoot up to 8fps – allowing you to capture everything from sport to the family dog jumping into a swimming pool on holiday.
For those who want to share images instantly but would still like to get creative with filters, there are 20 advanced filter modes selectable in the menu system. It also comes setup with 11 digital film simulation settings, for that iconic Fujifilm look.
This inexpensive 35mm offers users an affordable prime for beautiful images. Weighing in at just 130g and being under 5cm long, it is the perfect travel companion to the truly portable Fujifilm interchangeable lens camera series.
Designed for edge-to-edge sharpness, the new 35mm features 9 elements in 6 groups, 2 of which are aspherical, to reduce distortion. With 9 rounded aperture blades, the bokeh is smooth, so you can make the most of shooting right down at f/2.
This new zoom lens expands the range of lenses available for use with Fujifilm’s medium format cameras. At the heart of the lens are 16 elements in 12 groups, with 1 Super ED and 1 ED element for the best possible image quality throughout the whole of the zoom range. Focussing is done internally, keeping the lens to a reasonably small size during use. The linear motor works quickly, accurately and almost silently. With 5 stops of image stabilisation built into the lens, hand help portraiture even at slow shutter speeds, doesn’t offer up any sort of challenge.
The build quality of the 45-100mm is tough. Weather-resistant sealing, along with the quality of Fujifilm construction, make the lens usable in pretty extreme conditions, all the way down to -10 ºC.
