As with the Fujifilm X-T3 of 2018, this camera’s price and size have been slashed. The 26.1-megapixel APS-C sensor and zippy processor remain, as do a slew of features and shooting modes, all housed in a compact and robust body. Little has been sacrificed in the process. An impressive 425-point phase detection autofocus and a three-figure price tag combine to create one of the best cameras available today.

The X-T30 is also an excellent choice for shooting fast action because of its fast and responsive AF system and massive 2.16 million on-sensor phase detection pixels that cover the entire sensor. It is clear that the X-T30 is one of the most feature-rich cameras on the market.

These are the essentials.

  • Digital APS-C sensor with 26.1 Megapixels (MP)
  • There are 425 phase-detect points on the X-Processor 4 Hybrid AF system, which covers the entire frame.
  • 30 fps burst shooting without blackouts (but 1.25X) Without cropping, the camera shoots at 20 frames per second
  • A 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder with 0.62x equiv. magnification and a refresh rate of 100 fps in boost mode
  • 3″ swiveling touch screen
  • A dedicated drive, shutter speed, and exposure compensation dials
  • A joystick for selecting AF points.
  • The Eterna Film Simulation mode can be activated.
  • Full-sensor 4K/30p capture for DCI and UHD 4K/30p
  • Internal recording at 4:2:0 in 8-bit mode or HDMI output at 4:2:2 in 10-bit mode
  • Dedicated USB-C port for headphones
  • A single SD card holder (UHS-I only)

In comparison to the more expensive X-T3, Fujifilm’s X-T30 has a similar 26MP sensor, processor, and much of the same feature set. The X-T20/X-T2 relationship had a similar dynamic, which may be why it sounds familiar.

Fujifilm’s newest autofocus system, as well as numerous direct controls and a tilting touchscreen, are all packed into the X-compact T30’s body.
