Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black First Impressions

"Great clarity."

Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. During my search, I discovered that the Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black was about to be released. I bought this Touch Screen Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. After over 10,000 pictures, my Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black operates perfectly in every aspect.

Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black Final Thoughts

"It's a REAL camera."

I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. I like that while I am learning I can rely on the IA mode to take great shots for me. So glad I chose the Fujifilm X-T20 XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OISII Kit Black.

"I like the camera, but."

This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. Likewise, don't rule out film. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. This camera has so many features for its size. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington.

"Over all, a good buy."

After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. I will update this report once I have used it more. She squeals in excitement every time I open Snapchat and let her take pictures with me.

"You will love it!"

My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Easy to use, great for simple pictures. It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. So glad I chose the Fumfie 1066C001. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms.

Fumfie 1066C001 Final Thoughts

"Beautiful landscapes."

I'm impressed with how Fumfie incorporated it seamlessly. Fumfie, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. 10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers.

Excellent two characteristics in a Touch Screen Point & Shoot Digital Camera. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. I can't wait to try it out at the zoo.

Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. It will take some getting used to. Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not. 5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.
