Fujifilm X-T200 Camera
Although the X-T200 is similar in looks to X-T100, there are significant modifications present. The significant change is that the X-T200 is lighter X-T100. The weight of X-T200 is about 370g or 2.82oz. The lightweight feature of X-T200 makes it a better travel buddy.
Along with lesser weight, the new camera also has another modification. The X-T200 now has a new LCD with a variable angle. The LCD can be tilted when it flipped outwards.
The camera resolution is similar to X-T100. A twenty-four-megapixel APS-C sensor is present in the X-T200. Advanced Photo System type-C is an image sensor format.
It is almost equivalent in size to an Advanced Photo System negative classic film format. The camera is about 25.1 to 16.7mm in size. It gives better performance regarding the autofocus feature. Its new full phase direction coverage is of great help while auto-focusing.
The processor and APS-C sensor of 24.2 megapixels both are of great help in the reduction of noise. The continuous shooting speed of 8 frames per second is also present in the X-T200. While the X-T100 had a much slower speed of about six frames per second, the X-T200 will reportedly have wiring of copper.
These copper wirings will significantly reduce noise in the video-making process. Also, the installation will help to read the information transferred by the sensor faster as compared to X-T100. It also has a microphone jack of 2.5mm.
Fujifilm has also provided the new camera with better stabilization features. Now the camera has gyro sensors to give stability to the videos while moving. The provision of eye and face detection features makes it a better installment amongst the X series cameras.
New Tilting Screen & Better Video Quality
The X-T200 also supports 1080 pixels and HDR videos at a speed of 120 frames per second. 4k videos now play at an increased rate of 30 frames per second. Initially, the speed was 15 frames per second, which was almost unusable. The X-T100 limited to only 15 frames per second speed. It was the maximum speed for it.
The price of only the body of the X-T200 about 699.95 USD.With the inclusion of 15- 45 mm f/ 3.5 – 5.6 zooming power lens priced at 799.95 USD. The raised price of X-T200 very well justified by its new features of video making and touchscreen.

Whereas the XF 35mm f/2 WR by Fujifilm is almost double in price than the XC 35mm f/2 WR. It is because the XF 35mm f/2 WR has an aperture ring, metal construction, and building and a weather sealing.
All in all, the X-T200 will be the best buy for those looking for a mirrorless camera that is affordable and efficient in videos and images capturing.
