The Fujifilm X-S20 is a DSLR-style mirrorless camera with a 26MP X-Trans BSI-CMOS sensor. Unlike other Fujifilm X-series cameras, it has a more traditional control layout and a larger grip. It uses the same sensor as the X-T4 and X-S20 with upgrades to the image stabilization system, processor, and AF system. The camera can shoot bursts at 30 fps with a crop, 20 fps without using the electronic shutter, or 8 fps with the mechanical shutter and can sustain bursts longer thanks to its UHS-II card slot and faster processor.
The camera has a mode dial rather than the shutter speed and exposure compensation dials found on other X-series models. It also has a pop-up flash. The built-in OLED viewfinder has a magnification of 0.62x and resolution of 2.36 million dots. The LCD is fully articulating and touch-enabled. A mic input is built in, and headphones can be used using the 3.5mm jack on the grip. The camera can be powered over its USB port.
The camera can capture 6K open gate footage, 4K (DCI and UHD) for more than 30 minutes, with more runtime if you add the FAN-001 cooling fan accessory. Lovers of high-speed video can shoot at up to 240 fps by dropping down to Full HD. The X-S20 supports F-Log and F-Log2, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording, and compatibility with Blackmagic RAW and ProRes RAW using an external recorder.

The X-S20 is a surprisingly capable APS-C camera, giving you 2020 flagship-level performance for a reasonable price. It lacks the autofocus performance of its competitors, but it makes up for that by cramming in a ton of features for videos and photos alike, giving content creators room to experiment and grow. It shoots charming, high-quality images, solid 4K video and arguably has more character than its competitors.
Good for: New content creators shooting stills and video
Not so good for: High-speed action or wildlife photography
