What we like:

  • Updated sensor has low noise levels and wide dynamic range
  • Pleasing colors in JPEGs
  • Reliable face and eye detection
  • Gigantic and bright 3.5″ touchscreen
  • Well-designed touch interface lets smartphone users avoid dials and menus
  • Dynamic Range settings make it easy to cope with contrast in backlit scenes
  • Mic and headphone sockets (the latter via an included adapter)
  • Good quality oversampled 4K video
  • ‘Digital gimbal’ feature smooths out very shaky video (though at 1080/30p and below)
  • USB charging

What we don’t like:

  • You can’t select a focus point if faces are detected automatically
  • Poor quality Full HD video
  • No subject tracking in video
  • Joystick is small and not well-placed
  • Eye sensor does not disable when LCD is flipped outward
  • Limited customizability
  • Functionality of left-most dial isn’t consistent between modes
  • Buffer fills quickly when shooting bursts
  • Can’t adjust exposure compensation in manual modes when using Auto ISO
  • Average battery life

Conclusion from DPReview:

The Fujifilm X-T200 is a camera with an attractive design, good build quality and fantastic 3.5″ display. It can be operated almost entirely via the touchscreen, though it has plenty of dials if you wish to use them. Its photo and 4K video quality are very good, though 1080 quality isn’t so hot. It has some nice video features, including mic and headphone sockets and a ‘digital gimbal’ function. The camera does has some ergonomic quirks, its autofocus is good but not great, and its battery life is average.
