Fujifilm released two new additions to its retro family, the X-T20 and X100F.

Fujifilm, which is famous for its mirrorless cameras, introduced the all-new X100F and X-T20 on Thursday, replacing their prX100T and X-T10 predecessors that were launched last year.

Although the major roll out for the fixed-lens X100F and interchangeable X-T20 is in the new image sensor, Fujifilm also included some twist on the features and designs.

Both cameras received a new 91 point Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) system, allowing them to cover 40 percent of the image area, Gizmodo noted. It also has a new X-Trans III 24.3-megapix sensor and new processor from Fujifilm's cutting-edge cams.

The X100F experienced some major overhauls. Its shutter speed dial features an integrated ISO dial and a new programmable front command dial to manage various parameters. Interestingly, it is now equipped with a joystick autofocus control, which is found on the X-T2 and X-Pro2. It also has a built-in Wi-Fi and support for UHS-1 SD cards.

Right handed people would also find ease as all of the controls have been transferred to the right of the display. The X100F's performance, particularly the autofocus, has been improved. It now snaps photos very quickly too!

Meanwhile, the X-T20 only had a few changes on hand. Although it has no joystick to manage AF points, it gets a full touch screen control to allow precise focus point selection during shooting. Reviewing the image is thus a pinch-zoom and swipe away. It also features a Fuji XF18-55 f/2.8 -$ R LM OIS lens and has a new continuous shooting mode together with 4K video recording capacity.

Talking about the price tags, the X100F costs $1,299 and comes in black and silver color variants. The X-T20, on the other hand, is between $899 (without the kit lens) and $1,199 (with the 18-55 mm kit lens). The two new shooters are slated to hit the shelves next month.
