Fujifilm XT20

Hi there, would like to know your opinions on this camera. Is it worth the price? I'm a beginner in photography. I've seen many bloggers using this camera and it seems good to me. Also, which lens is preferable for this camera?

Lastly, any good lobang for it?

Thanks all!

Ha, if it is good camera or no, only you can tell la.

If you want me to tell you in my Opinion, YES it is a very good camera.

For your info X-T10/20 was originally designed for ladies thus the smaller profile.

Performance is a no brainer, it is good for that price range and Fuji is pretty known for good colours and film simulations. <- you should google and look up on this.

No lobang to intro unless you go Carousell hunting, or else I think going to Shops like TK foto etc; should have better buying experience.

Lens to go, if you are starting out, stick to the 18-55 kit lens, it is an amazing lens. Until you are sian, then look for more lens options.

This is a good review of the kit lens and do take note that the reviewer is using older generation of camera.

PS: A few of my friend whom I have recommended X-T20 has been happy owners.

BTW: happy Shooting!

The deal is good for X-T2 series.

Comes with an expensive Vertical Grip.

Yes new firmware on the current xt20. It can do the lcd slide focusing like the canon does.

Yes can buy now. Also do consider the latest x-e3, a rangefinder stype xt20 equivalent. The 23mmf2 bundle pricing is attractive, they throw in some nice freebies too. But you have to wait for delivery though, its a pre order.

Hmmm yeah, I saw after you suggested. 18-55mm is at $2,099. Which is better? Haha. The prices of these two cameras are quite close. What's rangefinder? Hahaha. I've read that it's the first camera with Bluetooth function for Fujifilm?

Viewing is subjective.

Range finder models their EVF or OVF are all placed on the left of the camera.

T-20 and T-2 are SLR inspired camera, their EVF is on the center.

Google the Fuji latest E3, you will know. Can decide which to go for.

yes, personal preferences really. But flat top and non fudging the LCD is important to me.

Oh, XE3 doesn't have built in flash, they bundle a tiny external flash. Kind of "leche" to handle one more extra loose item. But will be moot if you use your own flash anyway.
