High speed autofocus and quick response

Never miss the action with Auto Focus times from as little as 0.06 seconds, approx. 0.5 second start-up time and a 0.5 second shooting interval

Switching between phase detection and contrast AF, the new Intelligent Hybrid AF system focuses in as little as 0.06sec*

Depending on the scene, Intelligent Hybrid AF instantly switches between high-speed phase detection AF and contrast AF. Applying the fastest algorithm according to the subject and scene, it can focus in just 0.06 sec.* so those priceless moments are never missed.

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 to roughly twice the processing speed of the previous generation**. These 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 sec, cuts shutter time lag to approx. 0.01 sec., and raises the maximum continuous shooting speed to 12fps.

Maximum high-speed continuous shooting at 12fps (max. 11 frames)

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. Particularly useful when shooting moving subjects.

Quick Start mode

After turning OFF the power, the X20 enters a “sleep” mode (for a maximum of 24 minutes). If the power is turned back on during this time, the X20 “wakes up” instantly, reducing the normal startup time from 0.9 sec. to approx. 0.5 sec. .

High Performance Mode

From instantaneous autofocusing in as little as 0.06 sec.* to enhanced LCD monitor brightness, this mode lets you enjoy the ultimate performance of the X20.


Focus Mode Selector (AF-S, AF-C and MF)

The focus mode selector lever to the right of the lens lets you instantly switch between AF-S (Single AF), AF-C (Continuous AF) and MF (Manual).

49 Points Selectable AF

Within the 49-point matrix of the autofocus area on the screen, AF accurately recognises the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus. It also lets you freely select the position of the AF frame. Using the LCD monitor, you also can change the AF frame size for pinpoint focusing.

Manual Focus

The distance index bar displayed on the LCD together with the depth of field scale and aperture value provide helpful guides for focusing. While checking the image in Live View, it is easy to adjust the focus by rotating the sub command dial. Turn on “Focus Check” in the menu and you can use focus point zoom to confirm a sharp focus.

Focus Peak Highlight function for sharper manual focusing.

When manually adjusting focus, this function highlights the area of your subject that is in focus for smoother and more precise fine tuning of focusing.

AF Assist Lamp for Low-Light Scenes

In low light settings when even the subject is hard to see through the viewfinder, AF Assist Lamp illuminates the subject and assists autofocus.
