Residents of Johannesburg are bracing for a severe storm following a warning by the city’s Disaster Management Centre. The thunderstorm is expected to land…
Fujifilm on Friday announced its new “lightweight and compact body” camera, the X-T200. Weighing in at 370 grams without a lens, it’s about 20% lighter than the outgoing X-T100.
Backed by a 24.2MP APS-C sensor, the body also shoots still at up to 8 fps, while phase-detection autofocus now features.
“This allows the X-T200 to process data 3.5 times faster than the X-T100, with the rolling shutter effect also reduce,” said Fujifilm in a release.
And for those too lazy to use the zoom wheel while snapping portraits, the X-T200 also features Face/Eye Detection AF, which tracks individuals’ or groups’ eyes.
“Automated functions, like Main Subject Recognition, allow the camera to be set to recognise and track a main subject within the frame, with the X-T200 further capable of focusing in dimly lit environments up to -2.0EV,” the company added.
For vloggers or extremely creative shooters, the body also features a 3.5-inch “vari-angle” touchscreen that can be bent and swivelled as required. It has touch support too, while settings can also be programmed or selected by tapping it — from background blur to aspect ratios.
4K at 60 fps is also supported, while the X-T200 also features electronic image stabilisation powered by a gyro sensor and HDR support.
Finally, the camera will be sold in South Africa sans lens, or with the XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ. There are also three colours to choose from: silver, dark silver and champagne.
The X-T200 will be priced around R12 999 with the aforementioned lens, while R11 300 will fetch you the body alone. Both will be available from March 2020.
