Fujifilm has announced the new Fujifilm X-T200 , a mid-range mirrorless camera designed for smartphone snappers looking for a photo upgrade.

Headline stats for the Fujifilm X-T200  are a newly designed electronic viewfinder, enhanced face detection autofocus, up to 24.2 megapixel image size (up to 8 frames per second), and 4 K video recording at 30 frames per second, or 1080p Full HD video at 120FPS for 4x slow motion.

The classic good-looking camera features a wide 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen monitor that folds out and pivots to help you frame your images and video at any angle.Folding the screen around 180 degrees means that you can snap a high-quality selfie with an outstretched arm, and the camera ‘s face and eye detection will help you look the best for that new profile picture.

With portability as a key ingredient, the camera has been on a diet and now weighs 370 g, which is 80 g less than its predecessor, the X-T100.

Inside you’ll find a 24.2 megapixel APS-C high-speed CMOS image sensor that uses copper wiring to improve performance. The user interface has been developed to make photography easy, and Fujifilm says its layout is developed to be familiar to smartphone photographers. The company also expects the new camera to be able to process data 3.5 times faster than its predecessor.

One of the camera’s automatic features, called Main Subject Recognition, identifies the main subject in a frame, then monitors it and holds it in focus as you move.

For those who want to be more creative, the Fujifilm X-T200 has no less than 11 modes of film simulation, giving your footage the look and feel of being shot on film. There are also 20 ‘Advanced Filters’ to help you set the right mood for every photo you take.

The camera features a digital gyroscope for smooth 4 K video shooting and what Fujifilm calls the Electronic Image Stabilization Mode. In-camera editing means that you can trim and transfer videos to your smartphone without using a computer.

The Fujifilm X-T200 is available as an XC15-45 mm, F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens kit and comes in three colors-silver, dark silver and champagne. It is priced at £ 749 and is sold at 27 F.
