Fujifilm has just announced a new camera in their lineup of professional cameras. This latest offering from Fujifilm is named as the X-T30. Now, this is a successor to the Fujifilm X-T20 and smaller version of the premium Fujifilm X-T3. Fujifilm has revealed that the Fujifilm X-T20 was their best-seller so it is necessary to release a worthy successor. From the outside, it looks like Fujifilm has done a great job with the Fujifilm X-T30.
The front design of Fujifilm X-T30 is similar to the Fujifilm X-T20 but there is some tinkering done on the rear. The company has added a focus joystick on the X-T30 rather than the D-pad so it is easier to control the focus lever, touchscreen, and Q button with the thumb. Fujifilm also claims that the rear LCD panel of X-T30 is 10% thinner than the X-T20. On the whole, Fujifilm X-T30 is much smaller than the X-T3 which is not necessarily a bad thing.
But the reduced size of Fujifilm X-T30 means that you do not get locking ISO and shutter speed dials from the X-T3. This means you have to set the ISO and shutter speed from the LCD. You also get only a single SD card slot on the Fujifilm X-T30. Fujifilm X-T30 also retains the built-in flash present on the Fujifilm X-T3.
Similar to Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30 has the same 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 backside-illuminated sensor and X-Processor 4 quad-core CPU. Apart from that, you get the same performance in autofocus speeds and accuracy as their flagship X-T3. Also, Fujifilm has added even better focus capabilities to the X-T30 than the X-T3. Apart from that, Face and Eye tracking on this camera have been improved too. As for the pricing, Fujifilm X-T30 is available for $899 in the US without the lens. With the 18-55mm lens, Fujifilm X-T30 retails for $1299.
