The Review of The Fourth Generation Fujifilm X-T30 Camera and Specs

Written by Nanuduke

This new product FUJIFILM X-T30, possesses similar functions with FUJIFILM X-T3, being in a smaller and lighter body and possessing the same phase-detection with AF system which is almost 100% frame coverage, blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30fps, monochrome adjustment function, Color 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 “Little Giant – X-T30” offers premium image quality at a more accessible price than ever before it comprises of 383g Compact and Lightweight Body, X-Trans  CMOS 4 & X-Processor 4,Phase detection AF to entire frame, 30fps Blackout Free Shooting, Monochrome Adjustment and Advanced SR Auto.

The number of phase detection pixels 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 auto-focusing. The low-light limit for phase detection AF has been also expanded from +0.5EV in the previous-generation camera systems to -3.0EV.

The FUJIFILM X-T30 is designed with a Number of effective pixels of over 26.1 million pixels, Image sensor 23.5mm×15.6mm (APS-C) X-Trans CMOS 4 with primary color filter
Sensor Cleaning system is an Ultra Sonic Vibration.
Storage media is and SD Card of (-2G) / SDHC Card (-32G) / SDXC Card (-512G) UHS-I  others include
