It features a redesigned EVF, face detection autofocus and is built around a new sensor and processor. It’s the follow-up the X-T100, and is lighter with a more advanced sensor. The camera features a new Digital Gimbal Function that utilizes gyro sensors inside the camera’s body—a great tech feature for recording smooth video footage without an additional accessory.
