Film Simulation Mode

Signature color expression by FUJIFILM

Explore the beautiful tonality of Film Simulation modes.
Just like choosing the ideal film for your creative direction, this powerful mode lets you simulate the film color and tonal qualities of FUJIFILM's acclaimed color reversal films: the natural look of PROVIA, the dramatic tonality and vivid colors of Velvia, and the soft tones and beautiful skin color reproduction of ASTIA. Faithfully reproducing Fujichrome color quality loved by professional photographers, Film Simulation transforms your vision into masterpieces of color expression. You can also replicate the timeless beauty of monochrome film photography with a selection of monochrome of filters.

“Studio Ready” Professional Color Negative Film Modes for Perfect Portraits

Every detail captured with gentle tonality.
PRO Neg.Std

Beloved of studio portrait photographers, the look of professional color negative film is replicated in the exceptionally soft and smooth skin tonality of PRO Neg.Std. In outdoor shooting, this mode exquisitely captures even subtleties in the atmosphere of the scene and produces a photo with extremely soft tones.

Vivid with dramatic moment.
PRO Neg.Hi

PRO Neg.Hi simulates the other essential film of professional photographers. Developed for subjects in motion and constantly changing conditions, PRO Neg.Hi brings out subtle color contrasts even in pale light. While preserving natural soft skin tones, it reprodeces harder gradations in the background. When you anticipate an encounter with a dramatic moment, this is the film simulation mode to have at ready!

Shooting movies at the high bit-rate of 36Mbps results in enhanced image quality and clarity that reveals every detail from individual leaves in the trees to subtle changes in facial expression. You can also take advantage of Monochrome and the vivid color expression of other Film Simulation modes, and exploit the brightness of the lens to shoot movies with a dreamy “bokeh” effect. Also the new movie scene recognition function can automatically recognise 6 types of scene and optimise settings for beautiful results under a variety of shooting conditions.

ISO Sensitivity

ISO100-12800 Sensitivity setting range

Select from the broad sensitivity range of ISO100-12800 for shooting at a full 12-megapixel resolution. The FUJIFILM X20 also lets you set the AUTO ISO range (up to ISO 3200) and the shutter speed limit. For quick access to ISO settings, you can assign this function to the Fn or Q Button.

Flash

Super Intelligent Flash

Automatically delivering the ideal amount of flash for every scene, the FUJIFILM X20 clearly and brightly captures faces even under strong backlit or dark conditions. Also when shooting macro shots in dim lighting, this smart flash prevents the washout of the subject and background. When even more light is required or you're shooting with the lens hood attached, you can use a separately sold TTL flash.
