Comprising 2 aspherical lenses, 2 glass prisms and other high performance optical elements, the real-image optical zoom 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 not only maintains the brightness of the optical viewfinder, but also provides a clear display of the focus area, shutter speed and other shooting information so you can compose your shot without taking your eye from the viewfinder.
The newly developed Digital Trans panel automatically switches the color 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 advanced zoom viewfinder contributes to both FUJIFILM X20's compact size and exceptionally clear, bright view.
When you bring the camera to your eye, the viewfinder can sense it and will switch automatically to viewfinder mode. Then when you lower the camera the display switches to the LCD on the back of the camera. Alternatively you can select to always display images on the LCD or to always use the Viewfinder depending on your preferences.
Located on the left-hand side of the viewfinder, the dial lets you adjust viewfinder focus from -3.5 - +1.5m-1 (dpt) for comfortable viewing even for glasses wearers.
