DPReview has published full in-depth review and test results for the Fujifilm X-T200 mirrorlsss camera. The Fujifilm X-T200 mirrorless camera gets an excellent 82% overall score and Silver Award from the experts at DPReview.
The X-T200 uses a 24MP Bayer sensor but uses copper rather than aluminum wiring, which provides 3.5x faster readout and had allowed Fujifilm to extend the high ISO by one stop, to 25600.
The X-T200 is lighter than the X-T100, weighing in at 370g / 0.8lb. The T200’s touchscreen is larger (3.5″ vs. 3″) and inherits a more touch-friendly menu from the X-A7. Check out the Fujifilm X-T200 Review below.
What we like:
- Updated sensor has low noise levels and wide dynamic range
- Pleasing colors in JPEGs
- Reliable face and eye detection
- Gigantic and bright 3.5″ touchscreen
- Well-designed touch interface lets smartphone users avoid dials and menus
- Dynamic Range settings make it easy to cope with contrast in backlit scenes
- Mic and headphone sockets (the latter via an included adapter)
- Good quality oversampled 4K video
- ‘Digital gimbal’ feature smooths out very shaky video (though at 1080/30p and below)
- USB charging
What we don’t like:
- You can’t select a focus point if faces are detected automatically
- Poor quality Full HD video
- No subject tracking in video
- Joystick is small and not well-placed
- Eye sensor does not disable when LCD is flipped outward
- Limited customizability
- Functionality of left-most dial isn’t consistent between modes
- Buffer fills quickly when shooting bursts
- Can’t adjust exposure compensation in manual modes when using Auto ISO
- Average battery life
Conclusion from DPReview:
The Fujifilm X-T200 is a camera with an attractive design, good build quality and fantastic 3.5″ display. It can be operated almost entirely via the touchscreen, though it has plenty of dials if you wish to use them. Its photo and 4K video quality are very good, though 1080 quality isn’t so hot. It has some nice video features, including mic and headphone sockets and a ‘digital gimbal’ function. The camera does has some ergonomic quirks, its autofocus is good but not great, and its battery life is average.
Those seeking a camera with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface or who want a compact, inexpensive camera with a vast collection of great lenses.
Not so good for
Those who want a heavily customizable camera or for whom autofocus performance is a top priority.
