Envelops the camera as always on time comes in a box, to a correct guide of paper came from DHL. The feel of the case is first class. Everything feels solid and stable. Everything? Well, almost everything. The main dial on the back looks a little delicate and wobbly. In operation, it proved itself to secure this scroll against accidental changes to the lock function. Another feature turned out that the date can be set only in the AM / PM format. If already Retro, then right ;-)!
During my first trips the X20 was able to show that they not only looks cool, but also delivers high-quality images in high detail and color brilliance. The interaction of high-intensity lens with image stabilizer and the X-Trans sensor could provide under marginal lighting conditions its strengths to the test at evening shots of downtown Bremen. The results in JPG format saw on the screen so convincing that the use of the optional RAW format seems questionable.
Working with the optical viewfinder fun again. Various ads in the field help in the setting. The manual focusing via LCD monitor is greatly facilitated by a so-called. Cut edges indicator.
It's been known that the technique of X20 is thirsty for energy, so I immediately ordered a 1000 mAh battery. Who wants to make a day trip without worrying about battery capacity, which will either switch the display of the camera and take pictures with the viewfinder or simply have to order more spare batteries.
Conclusion: The camera is too good to eke out as chic retro object in a collector's display their existence!
