As well as being compared against other pro digicams, the Fujifilm FinePix x20 is also often compared to mirrorless, boutiques, ultra compacts, travel zooms, entry-level DSLRs and compacts. The Fujifilm FinePix x20's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Alpha A6000 and the Cybershot DSC-RX100) and Fujifilm (such as the X30 and the X-T20)

compared toPro digicam competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm x20 compared to other pro digicam competitors include: it slightly higher maximum light sensitivity (12,800 ISO vs 3,200 ISO), shoots faster continuously (12 fps vs 7 fps), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), has an external mic jack and uses fast phase detection autofocus (phase detection vs contrast detection).

However, on average it has a slightly narrower wide angle lens (28 mm vs 24 mm), has a significantly smaller screen (2.8" vs 3"), has a slightly lower resolution screen (460k dots vs 920k dots), doesn't have a screen which flips out and has a much shorter battery life (270 shots vs 380 shots).
