Canon announces budget EOS R100 mirrorless camera
Fujifilm launched two new products at its X Summit Bangkok 2023 event to give content creators and vloggers more gear to choose from.
The first is the X-S20 digital camera, the successor to the X-S10. The compact and lightweight vlogging camera is equipped with the latest processor technology – X-Processor 5 – along with improved battery life.
Along with its built-in image stabilization (IBIS), the camera comes with an updated AF algorithm.
For example, Product Priority and Background Defocus shooting modes give users more leverage for photos.
It also has the new “Vlog” mode which will benefit creators, casual photographers and even amateurs.
The camera is capable of shooting 4K at 60 fps and FHD up to 240 fps. The device also has two 3.5mm jacks, which means that a microphone and headphones can be inserted at the same time.
New ultra-wide lens
Complementing the camera, the new Fujinon XF8mmF3.5 R WR UWA ultra-wide lens features a field of view of over 120 degrees to capture vast backgrounds.
What’s great about the lens is that when set to 36cm at f/8 everything can also be in focus.
With low breathing, the lens is capable of rapid autofocus that can barely be noticed when it shifts. This makes the lens a handy video shooting companion.
The built-in 62mm filter thread also allows users to add readily available filters, such as ND filters for wide apertures in bright conditions.
Fujifilm Xapp: film from your phone
Fujifilm is also introducing the Fujifilm XApp, which makes tasks even more seamless for creators.
By simply connecting via Bluetooth, cameras like the X-S20 can wirelessly transfer images to a smartphone.
The camera can even be controlled remotely from the app. Users can take photos or videos without even pressing the shutter button or holding the camera itself.
The app also has a live view feature, in case one needs to see what’s on the frame from a bigger screen instead of the viewfinder — in time. real.
