The new Fujifilm X-T30 offers similar performance to Fujifilm X-T3, in a smaller and lighter body. It has the same phase-detection AF system with almost 100% frame coverage, blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30 fps, monochrome adjustment function, Colour Chrome effect and Sports Viewfinder mode while also offering functions that cater to the less professional photographer, such as the Advanced SR Auto function as well.
The next leap in expressive capability
The "Little Giant - X-T30" offers premium image quality at a more accessible price than ever before. The Fujifilm X-T30 features the X Series' fourth-generation X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor. Boasting a resolution of 26.1MP, the sensor uses the unique X-Trans colour filter array to reduce moiré and false colours without the need for an optical low pass filter. Its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality while reducing noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. levels and extending the sensitivity to ISO160.
The new X-Processor 4 has a quad-core design to utilise the full potential of the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor. This combination of processor and sensor is behind the enhanced Film Simulation mode, which enables you to achieve richer colours and tones, as well as significant improvement in the camera's ability to track a moving subject, faster and more accurate autofocus, and enhanced 4K/30P video capabilities.

- Extended ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)80-51200, 30 fps Shooting

Faster and more accurate AF performance
The number of phase detection pixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints.s in the sensor has been increased to 2.16 million and the phase detection AF area covers the entire frame (approx. 100%), enabling fast and accurate autofocusing. The low-light limit for phase detection AF has been also expanded from +0.5EV in the previous-generation camera systems to -3.0EV.
Mechanical Shutter and Electronic Shutter
The Fujifilm X-T30 can shoot continuously at up to 8.0fps in full resolution when using the mechanical shutter and offers the Sport Viewfinder mode, which shoots pictures within a cropped area representing approx. 16.6 megapixels (1.25x crop), marked within the viewfinder view, so that you can check the movements of a subject even before it comes into the shooting frame. By using the electronic shutter, the FUJIFILM X-T30 supports blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30fps*. When the electronic shutter is selected, you can also choose the Silent mode.
"Face- and eye-detection AF" for better portrait photographs
The tracking performance of the "Face- and Eye-detection AF" is twice as good as previous models. The Fujifilm X-T30 maintains accurate focus on people from the front or side in scenes which were notoriously difficult to track. The eye-detection AF is also supported in the AF-C mode, focus-tracking subject's eyes in portraiture that involves movements. The eye-detection AF can be configured to priority-focus on either right or left eye or the eye closest to the camera. It is a powerful tool in portrait photography, which demands focus accuracy with a shallow depth of field.
"Face Select" function to make sure to capture an important subject
When there are multiple faces within the frame, you can select a specific person on the touchscreen panel or with the Focus Lever so that autofocus and exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. settings are optimised for the subject. "Face Select" is a perfect tool when shooting commemorative photos or shooting a specific person in a large crowd in sports or other events.
4K/30P Video Recording and High-Resolution Digital Audio
Thanks to the 4th generation image sensor and processor, the Fujifilm X-T30 boasts superb 4K video recording features. It actually records in 6K (6240x3510) to produce stunning quality in 4K (3810x2160). The camera also supports the DCI format (17:9), which gives an even more cinematic look to your videos. The FUJIFILM X-T30 adopts high-resolution audio recording without the need for additional accessories. Finally, F-Log recording and 4:2:2 10bit output via the HDMI port are also supported making the camera suitable to produce more professional, fully fledged videos
The face- and eye-detection AF during Video Recording
Face and eye-detection AF is also available when recording video. Together with the "Face Select" function, you can switch who is in focus while recording by using the touchscreen panel or the Focus Lever.
4K video with Film Simulation modes
You can shoot 4K movies using any of the Film Simulation modes. ETERNA, is particularly suitable for video thanks to its subdued colours and rich shadow tones, giving a cinematic look. ACROS delivers monochrome video with fine textures and rich gradation, while CLASSIC CHROME creates a unique atmosphere, reminiscent of vintage reversal films. Velvia gives an option of giving high saturation to video imagery.
Fujifilm's unique Film Simulation modes
A total of 16 Film Simulation options are available, producing rich colours and tones that reflect your creative intentions just as if you were swapping between different types of photographic films. This is a function exclusive to Fujifilm, developed with the company's colour presentation philosophy and know-how perfected over 80 years of manufacturing photographic film. Diverse options available include PROVIA and Velvia, named after FUJIFILM's own photographic films, as well as ETERNA, which emulates the tones of motion pictures, CLASSIC CHROME, suitable for documentary photos, as well as two types of monochrome filters including ACROS.
Special effects that enhance your photographic expressions even further
The Fujifilm X-T30 offers various effects that can be combined with Film Simulation modes to enhance creative flair in colour tones and gradations. The special effects available include the Color Chrome effect, which produces deeper colours and gradation in subjects that contain highly saturated colours, which are notoriously difficult to photograph. The Monochrome Adjustment function faithfully reproduces warm and cool blacks in digital photos, which used to be achieved with specific photographic papers and developers. The Grain effect adds graininess, typically seen in film-based pictures, to digital photos to create an analog-like texture. The camera also provides means of adjusting highlight tones, shadow tones, sharpness and other properties.
The Fujifilm X-T30's reflects the X Series design philosophy.
Every element of the design has been made with the photographer in mind, from the dial-based operation to the compact, lightweight body. The FUJIFILM X-T30 uses the latest generation APS-C sensor to record every picture in the highest quality and has an aesthetically pleasing design that evokes a passion for capturing the moment, helping to immerse yourself into the world of photography.
In addition, the camera incorporates numerous convenient features such as the touchscreen rear LCD panel and a well-hidden, built-in flash.
Wide variety of shooting modes to suit any shooting conditions
You can choose from "Manual" to choose exposure settings yourself, "ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Priority" to prioritise the depth of field and BokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh. - background blur effect in your image, "Shutter SpeedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. Priority" to ensure capturing motion in your subject or "Program" to leave the choice of aperture and shutter speed to the camera. You can also opt for the "Advanced SR Auto" for intelligent, fully-automatic shooting.
- Control Mode: You can select "Program," "Shutter Speed Priority," "Aperture Priority" and "Manual" by using a combination of the Shutter Speed Dial and the Aperture Ring on the lens. The Exposure Compensation Dial also allows you to adjust exposure by up to ±5 stops*.
- Auto Mode: When using the Advanced SR Auto mode, the camera automatically selects the optimum shooting settings from 58 preset scenes.
- Advanced SR Auto Mode: When the Advanced SR Auto mode is selected, the camera examines the scene and automatically selects optimum autofocus and exposure settings. This mode is useful for situations where it is difficult to determine the right exposure settings. You only need to press the shutter to obtain high-quality images and capturing perfect photo opportunities.
High-performance electronic viewfinder
The Fujifilm X-T30 features an EVF with approx. 2.36 million dots and the magnification ratio of 0.62x. This is brighter and a higher resolution than previous models, and offers a magnification ratio equivalent to DSLRs. With a display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and refresh rate of 100fps*, the EVF allows you to identify your subject's movements quickly and accurately. Unlike a DSLR, the EVF helps you see exactly what the sensor will capture, with the effects of Film Simulation and exposure reflected in real time so that you can shoot without checking how the settings affect the final image.
Tilting touchscreen LCD monitor
The Fujifilm X-T30 features a 3.0-inch tilting touchscreen LCD monitor that has a 3:2 aspect ratio and approx. 1.04 million dots. The tilting design enables easy shooting from high and low angles. All shooting information, normally displayed on the monitor, can be turned off if you want to concentrate on taking the picture.
Equipped with a capacitive touchscreen panel, the Fujifilm Selection," "Touch Shot" and "Touch Function". This capability means you can move your focus area faster and more intuitively than ever before or simply use a swipe motion to scroll through images when reviewing.
Enhanced grip and handling.
The Fujifilm X-T30 uses an eight-direction lever instead of the traditional 4-way selecter buttons. This gives the camera's compact body extra room to grip the camera for added stability. At the same time, the grip thickness has been increased so the camera sits more comfortably in your hand.
Automatic transfer with Bluetooth®
The Fujifilm X-T30 can be paired with a smart device with Bluetooth® for always on connection*, enabling automatic transfer of pictures you take to share quickly on social media. The connection also enables other functions, such as remote shooting from a smartphone/computer, viewing of pictures taken on your device, and printing directly to an Instax printer.
