In reply to:

TwoMetreBill: No battery grip available, contrary to review, without which this camera is way too small for my adult hands. So it will be a used X-T1 for me. Sad as the higher IQ of the 20 would be nice.
Net: a very nice camera with serious handling issues.

Can you point out where in the review a battery grip is mentioned?

In reply to:

wb2trf: The continuous shooting spec shown in this review table for the A6300 is 8fps. But actually it it is 11fps with AF, but without interframe updating of the display. 8fps is the speed with AF and interframe (so called "continuous") updating of the VF. The A6000 is also 11fps with AF but has a "lagging image" update of the VF.

Thanks for the correction!

Xaver3: With the X-T10 you could costomize the front dial for ISO setting. Is that still possible with the X-20?

Not it is not possible.

flysurfer: "What you don't get are zebra patterns, a histogram and face detection. The X-T2 offers face detection"...

Claiming that the X-T20 doesn't offer Face Detection in video mode os pretty bold, because my X-T2 certainly offers FD during video recording.

It's like in the X-T2: FD in HD mode, no FD in 4K mode. No difference.

Thanks for pointing this out, I've added that.

TheWhiteDog: Between this review and the article about the GFX 50S Fuji is not having a good day at dpreview! I thought this camera, given its price point, would have gotten a Gold award. The article on the the GSX 50S seems odd also, never have I seen an article like that on dpreview- essentially it had a "you don't need this, so don't buy it" tone to the article.

As mentioned in another comment, the X-T20 was on the cusp of silver and gold. Slept on it and decided that silver was the right choice.

Antonis30: Interesting how this camera got the same score as the Canon EOS M5, 82%.Frankly due to the superior lens lineup and seemingly better sensor, I expected a higher score for the X-T20.

The X-T20's award is really on the cusp of gold. After sleeping on it, silver won out.

Scintilla Aquila: As of 11:21 A.M. EDT, the two links in the "Dynamic Range" section aren't working; the X-T20 isn't available on the dropdown list of cameras on those pages.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, it's fixed now.

dudewithcamera: Can we stop calling the Fuji XT series "DSLR style"? They're‚Äč SLR-styled. No DSLR ever looked like the cameras in this series.

This series of models look the way SLR cameras looked *before* digital.

I'm not making a dig on DSLR styling. It's fine. I have a DSLR. I'm just saying that these cameras specifically do not look like DSLRs Panasonic's GH series, yes -- these, no.

Point well taken, I've changed it.

KonstantinosK: Interesting. I didn't know about folded optics. Is there the same solution in my TZ-5? And is this used in today's travel zooms?

Minolta made quite a few cameras with folded optics, like this one:

captura: I still have a TZ4 and will take it out of the drawer and try it again, for a few days.
I hope DPR will re-run the Lumix LX3, now that was a real trail-blazer. I still use mine for B&W photos. Something about that sensor...

Ohh, thanks for the tip on the LX3!

In reply to:

triplejaydee: Why aren't more compact cameras using folded optics these days?

Probably because nobody buys compact cameras anymore :)

StevenE: Your article says the T7i does not have a mic input, then it says it does, then it says it doesn't again.
Every other website claims that the T7i DOES have a mic input.
Probably a good idea to clarify this here.

Fixed it while you were typing :)

dlb41: Do these cameras all have pentaprisms or do the lower models have pentamirrors?

The Rebel and 77D are pentamirror.

In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: The T7i does have a built in microphone jack. Might wanna correct that.

Got it right in the in the table and wrong at the end. Thank you.

UneVache: Throwback Friday about Flight Simulator ? :D

I'm surprised that there's still a pretty active FS X community out there! Almost makes me want to pick up a joystick and get back into it, even though I'm terrible.

In reply to:

Autriche78: Good for Canon, but can someone explain why every manufacturer seems to desire to confuse the consumer with model numbers that bear no obvious relation to hierarchy within a system? So this is below the 5 but above the 3 - and labelled as #6. Seriously...

@RedFox88: Canon sells a ton of cameras in China.

Here's a whole Wikipedia article about unlucky number 4:

I think there's no M4 because the number four is an unlucky number in Chinese, since it sounds like "deceased" or similar. Way back when, Canon skipped the PowerShot G4, as well.

Agreed that it's super-confusing, though.

Thorgrem: So can we expect new Nikon 1 products any time soon?

I think the writing's on the wall.
