This Sony A6700 vs Fujifilm X-S20 shoot-out brings together two important new cameras, both fighting over the same audience and both with video features normally found only on much more expensive cameras.

The Sony A6700 was in many ways a logical camera for Sony to make, updating the old flagship A6600 APS-C model with the sensor and many of the video features from the Sony FX30 cinema camera. Fujifilm, meanwhile updated its entry-level APS-C mirrorless model (or the nearest thing to it right now) with some serious video capabilities which put it into a whole new league.

Both cameras look like instant candidates for the best hybrid cameras you can buy right now, not to mention the best cameras for filmmaking and even the best cameras for vlogging. But even if you've already decided they're the next big thing, you've still got to decide which is best – and that's where come in!

Here you'll find a detailed breakdown of each camera's key specifications and features and how they compare. The Sony A6700 and Fujifilm X-S20 are genuine hybrid cameras equally adept at both stills photography and video, but there are some differences in how they approach specific jobs and what they're like to use.

Of course, if you've already invested in the Sony E-mount or Fujifilm X-mount systems, this will be academic. The best Sony lenses and the best Fujfilm lenses are broadly on a par, so you'll want to stick to the system you've got. Even so, you might want to see just how these two cameras compare in case you ever get the urge to switch systems in future.

So let's go!
