Fuji X-T20 is the new mirrorless camera to the market that is taking the attention of the photographers all because of its outstanding specifications. The camera offers you 4K recording capability, faster shutter speed and more plus its low light capability is considerably well etc. On the other hand, Canon 80D is PSC-sizes DSLR camera that features truly impressive specs. Let’s see its imaging performance when compared to Fuji X-T20…

You can’t notice huge difference in the image quality since both the two cameras utilize the amazing APSC sensor, but Fuji X-T20 implements a bit bigger sensor that gives you the advantage. Moreover, X-T20 doesn’t employ low pass filter into the core, allowing the camera to grab much more details of the subject, even while shooting in lowlight. Thankfully, both the two cameras have almost similar numbers of effective pixels. Ultimately, as per the specification we can expect sharp and crystal clear shots of the subjects using X-T20.
However, it uses only contrast detect sensor, whereas Canon 80d utilizes Dual Pixel CMOS AF for fast and smooth AF during Live View and movie shooting as well as a dedicated Phase AF sensor inside the camera. Actually, instead of one, the CMOS sensor on the Canon 80D has two photodiodes per pixel, 40 million in total, enabling to both perform phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. As a result, autofocus is achieved quickly and easily on the camera without degradation in image quality. This intelligent technology also excels in providing stellar AF and tracking even in difficult shooting conditions. On the other hand, the AF system of Fuji X-T20 also utilizes hybrid AF system, but its AF performance is not blazing fast as Canon 80D.
However, Fuji X-T20 offers you creative 91 AF points that can be divided into 325 AF points for high precision AF at solid speed, whereas Canon 80D offers you 45 all cross types Points only.
The X-T20 also has a high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum speed of 1/32000 second) that incredibly minimizes the “rolling shutter” effect while shooting fast moving subjects. This fast shutter speed also allows the camera to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture while shooting at bright light conditions. Unfortunately, you can use the faster shutter speed upto 1/8000 sec only with Canon 80D.
Continuous shooting speed
Fuji X-T20 has faster Continuous shooting speed of 8fps compared to Canon 80D, which has 7fps. As a result, a rapidly occurring scene can be captured very comfortably and the images will be very crisp and clarity by Fuji X-T20.
We must give much credit to X-T20 all due to its video capability. Yes! It offers you 4K (3840 x 2160p) video recording @30fps, whereas Canon 80D offers you full HD video (1080p) only.
Fuji X-T20 is really a special camera that offers you some astonishing specs, but the camera is not weather resistance – a big downside. Thankfully, Canon 80d has weather sealed body that is worth buying it.
Price of Canon 80D is more than Fuji X-T20, but Fuji dominates more spaces than Canon in overall specs. Fuji X-T20 offers you 4K video capability, faster shutter speed and more. However, one big downside of Fuji X-T20 that it is not weather sealed, whereas Canon 80D offers you weather sealed body. We recommend you X-T20 since it is less expensive plus give you advanced specs.
