Fujifilm announce the X-T30
Fujifilm has announced the X-T30, a new APS-C mirrorless camera that inherits many of the features of its big brother, the X-T3, including the same 26.1MP X-Trans sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad Core-CPU, wrapped-up in a smaller and lighter body.
Beyond the sensor and CPU, the X-T30 features a number of autofocus improvements over the X-T3. There's a hybrid AF system with 425 points across the entire frame, along with a newly improved face detection system. It's worth noting that the autofocus improvements on the X-T30 will be added with a firmware update to the X-T3 shortly.
The other features of the X-T30 include a smaller and lower resolution viewfinder, 0.62x and 2.36M-dot to the X-T3's 0.75x and 3.69M-dots, a 3' touchscreen and a drive speed of 20fps in continuous AF. There's also just one SD card slot.
Video features include 4K/30p and 10-bit 4:2:2 output via HDMI. The X-T3 does get a slight bump in specs - offering 4K video at 60p, as well as 10-bit 4:2:0 internal recording.
Perhaps the most compelling feature of the X-T30 however is its price. The body retails at $1,599 RRP, and you can also get an X-T30 Body along with the solid XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS lens for $2,199 RRP. By comparison, the X-T3 retails for around $2,200.
The X-T30 Black and Silver versions will be available at the end of March.
