The Fujifilm X-T30 Mirrorless Digital Camera is the perfect choice for beginners who are thriving to step to the next level. Bundled the with the compact camera are the XF 18–55mm zoom and 35mm prime lenses. The camera uses a 26.1 MP APS-C CMOS X-Trans 4 sensor for rendering photos and Full HD videos. With the X-Processor 4, the camera performs smoothly in both continuous shooting and DCI/UHD 4K recording. The camera allows 4K burst capture at 30 fps with the electronic shutter and at 8 fps with the mechanical shutter. The 425-point phase-detection AF system benefits image and video capture for both the stationary and moving subjects. This Fujifilm mirrorless camera inherits the celluloid aspects of classic film rolls in the film simulation modes. The built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 LE seamlessly synchronize your smartphone with the camera for transferring images and allowing remote control.
Optics and Focus
The X-T30 can work with all X-series lenses. You get an XF 18–55mm f/2.8–4 R zoom lens and XF 35mm f/2 prime lens with the camera. These lenses have aspherical surfaces and Extra-low Dispersion elements in their optical construction to minimize chromatic and spherical aberrations. The prime lens uses a stepping AF motor for the autofocus operation, whereas the zoom lens works on a linear motor-driven AF system. You can use the optical image stabilization of the XF 18–55mm lens to compensate for the unwanted camera shakes. The rounded diaphragm blades of these lenses give pleasant bokeh. Back to the Fujifilm X-T30, it employs the 425-point phase-detection AF system that provides precision during the autofocus operation even in illumination of -3 EV.
Sensor and Screen
The Fujifilm X-T30 takes advantage of the 26.1 MP APS-C CMOS X-Trans 4 sensor for rendering high-resolution imagery. It has a back-illuminated design that brings down noise when using a high ISO. The X-Trans design of the sensor produces nuanced colors and smooth tonal gradations to give a look of film photographs. Also, there is no optical low-pass filter in the sensor, thus you will experience enhanced image sharpness for the captured images. With the rear 3.0-inch LCD, you get a live view of the scene in 1.04m-dot resolution. Additionally, the 2-way tilting design allows you to frame the shot from high or low angles. As the LCD has touchscreen functionality, you can easily access different menus and image settings. The 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder comes with a Sports Finder Mode that makes it possible to frame running athletes accurately in the 16.6 MP crop frame.
Image and Video
The Fujifilm X-T30 offers a maximum resolution of 6240×4160 pixels to the clicked images. You can keep the picture setting in JPEG for instant sharing. The RAW format is included in the camera, which lets you obtain additional control over the picture look. Switch to the video mode record in DCI or UHD 4K resolution at 30 fps. You can select the Full HD 1080p videos at 60 fps. Apart from the native 8 fps continuous shooting, you can choose the 4K burst mode to take consecutive images at 30 fps. The X-Processor 4 engine works on 4 CPU units to enhance the image processing during both continuous shooting and video recording. Bring uniqueness to the captured photos with the included advanced filters and film simulation modes.
The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 LE connectivity in the Fujifilm X-T30 makes it easy to send photos and videos to smartphones. With the built-in flash, you can take well-illuminated photos in the dark. An external flash can also be mounted on the hot shoe, while the PC terminal accepts flashbulbs. The camera can be powered by using the included NP-W126S Li-ion battery pack.
