Fujifilm has recently announced the Fujifilm X-S20 Camera and XF 8mm F3.5 R WR Lens at the X Summit BKK 2023.
Fujifilm X-S20 Camera
The Fujifilm X-S20 camera boasts impressive features that elevate your photography experience.

One notable enhancement over its predecessor, the X-S10, includes a 7-stop, 5-axis in-body image stabilization (IBIS) system, which minimizes camera shake and allows for sharper images.
The X-S20 offers a battery life of up to 750 shots per charge with the NP-W235, allowing users to capture more moments without worrying about running out of power. When it comes to videography, the camera supports 6.2K, 4K, and Full HD video recording. A new VLOG option on the mode dial has been introduced, providing quick access to video functions for content creators and vloggers.
