The X20's new advanced optical viewfinder gives you an easy-to-view real time shooting data display and a wide, bright field of view.
Comprising 2 aspherical lenses, 2 glass prisms and other high performance optical elements, the X20's advanced optical viewfinder delivers 85% coverage and a 20° horizontal apparent field of view with amazing optical clarity. Integrated in less than 1mm of space in the viewfinder configuration, the Digital Trans Panel, an ultra-thin LCD panel maintains the brightness of the optical viewfinder and provides a clear display of the focus area, shutter speed and other shooting information making it easier to compose your shot without taking your eye away from the viewfinder.
The newly developed Digital Trans panel automatically switches the colour of information in the shooting frame according to the scene and shooting conditions. Normally displayed in black, shooting information is automatically displayed by green LEDs for enhanced visibility in especially dark scenes. This function also applies to the display of the focusing area frame when AF fixes on a subject. And when an error occurs, the displayed information changes to red to aid your shooting decisions.
The adoption of a Dach glass prism in the X20's advanced viewfinder contributes to both its compact size and exceptionally clear, bright view.
When you bring the camera to your eye, the built-in eye sensor will switch automatically to the viewfinder mode. Lowering it away from your eyes, the display switches to the LCD on the back of the camera. Alternatively, you can choose to always display images on the LCD or the Viewfinder depending on your preference.
Located on the left-hand side of the viewfinder, the dial lets you adjust viewfinder focus from -3.0～+1.0ｍ-1(dpt) for comfortable viewing even for glasses wearers.
