Switching between phase detection and contrast AF,
New Intelligent Hybrid AF autofocuses in as fast as 0.06 sec.*

Depending on the scene, Intelligent Hybrid AF instantly switches between high-speed phase detection AF and contrast AF, which can focus on the subject even in dark scenes. Applying the fastest algorithm according to the targeted subject and scene, it can bring your subject into clear focus in as fast as 0.06 sec.* so those priceless moments are clearly and crisply caught by your lens.

Double the processing speed of a conventional image processor.
EXR Processor II

The blazing image processing performance of the newly developed EXR Processor II not only produces images with increased resolution and higher quality at higher speeds, but also accelerates operational responses. Adoption of a dual CPU and increased clock frequency elevate performance to about twice the processing speed of the previous generation**. These LSI improvements also speed up operation, reducing start-up time to only about 0.5 sec*** Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.5 second, cuts shutter time lag to approx. 0.01 sec., and raises the maximum continuous shooting speed to 12fps.

Maximum High-Speed Continuous Shooting Speed of 12fps (max.11 frames)

The combination of the improved processing speed of the EXR Processor II and fast readout speed of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor enables high-speed 12fps continuous shooting at full 12-Megapixel resolution. This is particularly useful when shooting moving subjects and later selecting the best shot.


From SLEEP to ON in about 0.5 sec. After turning OFF the power, the FUJIFILM X20 enters a “sleep” mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). If the power is turned ON during this time, the FUJIFILM X20 “wakes up” instantly, reducing the normal startup time from 0.9 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. ready for you to frame and capture the moment.

High Performance Mode

Ultra fast 0.06 sec.* AF and more. From instantaneous autofocusing in as fast as 0.06 sec.* to enhanced LCD monitor brightness, this mode lets you enjoy the ultimate performance of the FUJIFILM X20.
