We just started testing cameras, and our test bench v0.7 is rather simplistic, so we decided to launch without text in the test boxes. If you have any suggestions on what to improve, let us know here. As we gather your suggestions, we plan on making more frequent changes to our methodology and we'll be able to add text to the reviews in the near future.

FUJINON XC 15-45mm f3.5-5.6 OIS PZ

The Fujifilm X-T200 is an APS-C mirrorless camera with a portable design. It has excellent image quality, so your photos are clear and detailed. However, its photo autofocus system has sub-par performance, so it has trouble tracking moving subjects and keeping them in focus. If you like to record videos, it has a fully articulated screen that's suitable for vlogging. While its recording quality in 4k is decent, videos recorded in FHD may be a bit blurred or indistinct.

Our Verdict

7.4 Travel Photography

The Fujifilm X-T200 is satisfactory for travel photography. It has excellent image quality, so your photos are clear and detailed. It's also lightweight and easy to bring with you on-the-go. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the most premium build, and its small body can be uncomfortable for people with larger hands. Also, its sub-par autofocus feature can struggle to track moving subjects and keep them in focus.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality.
  • Portable design.
Cons
  • Disappointing build quality.
  • Sub-par photo autofocus performance.
7.6 Landscape Photography

The Fujifilm X-T200 is very good for landscape photography. This portable camera has a bright screen that's readable even in direct sunlight, and it has amazing image quality. However, its kit lens has some noticeable light falloff, so the edges of your photo may be a bit darker than the center. It doesn't have a very solid build, either.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality.
  • Portable design.
Cons
  • Disappointing build quality.
7.0 Sport & Wildlife Photography

The Fujifilm X-T200 is decent for sport and wildlife photography. Though it has amazing image quality, its autofocus system struggles to track fast-moving subjects and keep them in focus. If you like to use burst photography, it shoots a maximum of eight shots per second, which is decent, though it does take some time to clear its buffer.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality.
Cons
  • Sub-par photo autofocus performance.
7.2 Vlogging

The Fujifilm X-T200 is decent for vlogging. This portable camera has a fully articulated screen that can be flipped up to use as a selfie screen, which is handy. Video quality in 4k is decent, but its quality in FHD is disappointing. Also, it struggles to smooth out camera shake if you're walking while recording.

Pros
  • Fully articulated screen.
Cons
  • Noticeable camera shake if you record while walking.
6.9 Studio Video

The Fujifilm X-T200 is fair for studio video. It has a decent recording quality in 4k, but videos recorded in FHD aren't very detailed or sharp. Its video autofocus system can also have some difficulties tracking moving subjects, especially if you're recording in 4k. On the upside, it has lots of inputs for accessories like a microphone.

Pros
  • Lots of inputs for accessories.
Cons
  • Disappointing FHD recording quality.
4.3 Action Video

The Fujifilm X-T200 is poor for action video. It isn't really designed for this purpose, and it isn't water-resistant, though we don't test for this. While it has a decent recording quality in 4k, video recorded in FHD isn't very sharp or detailed. It also struggles to smooth out camera shake, especially if you're recording in 4k.

Pros
  • Portable design.
Cons
  • Noticeable camera shake if you record while walking.
  • Disappointing FHD recording quality.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Fujifilm X-T200 mirrorless camera is available in three different color variants: 'Silver', 'Dark Silver', and 'Champagne Gold'. We tested the 'Champagne Gold' variant with the FUJINON XC 15-45mm f3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens, and you can see the label for the model we tested here. We expect the other color variants to perform similarly with this lens.

You can also purchase this camera without any lenses at all. However, we haven't tested the camera with this setup.

If you come across another version, let us know in the discussions so we can update our review.
