Sample Photos: Check Out the 2/3-Inch X-Trans Sensor Quality in the X20

Fujifilm has released seven official sample photographs shot using the new X20, a slick little retro-styled compact camera with a 12MP 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS sensor. The X-Trans sensors in Fujifilm’s APS-C X-Series cameras (e.g. X-Pro1 and X-E1) are very highly regarded for their image quality and low light performance, so it’s interesting to see how the same tech performs on a much smaller sensor size (APS-C sensors are about 6.5 times larger than the X20’s 2/3 sensor).

Here are the seven photographs (click them to see the original full-resolution JPEGs):

ISO100, f/3.6, 1/300s, PROVIA

ISO100, f/3.6, 1/300s, PROVIA

ISO200, f/4, 1/250s, Velvia

ISO200, f/4, 1/250s, Velvia

ISO200, f/3.2, 1/280s, Velvia

ISO200, f/3.2, 1/280s, Velvia

ISO400, f/4, 1/850s, Provia

ISO400, f/4, 1/850, Provia

ISO400, f/2.8, 1/170s, Astia

ISO400, f/2.8, 1/170s, Astia

ISO400, f/5, 1/800s, Monochrome

ISO400, f/5, 1/800s, Monochrome

ISO800, f/2.5, 1/8.5s, Provia

ISO800, f/2.5, 1/8.5s, Provia

It’s too bad none of the photos were shot with sensitivities higher than ISO 800, but the image quality at that level looks quite good.
