Fujifilm XT-30 - Features, price in India and availability
Fujifilm just released the Fujifilm XT-30 which they are referring to as "The Little Giant" - and perhaps rightly so because it offers almost all the features of the Fujifilm X-T3 including the premium image quality at a more accessible price than ever before.
What is inside?
Inside the X-T30 is a 26.1-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 160-12800 which is expandable to ISO 80- ISO 5120.
What are we excited about?
The new Fujifilm X-T30, offers almost a similar performance to the Fujifilm X-T3, in a smaller, lighter and less pricey body. It has the same phase-detection autofocus system with (almost) 100% frame coverage and blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting (stills) of up to 30fps.
The X-Processor 4 Quad-Core CPU ensures the camera can shoot 30fps at 1.25x crop (photography/stills mode) and 20fps without a crop with electronic shutter, or 8fps with the mechanical shutter.
In the Advanced SR Auto mode, the camera examines the scene and automatically selects optimum autofocus and exposure settings. This mode is useful for situations where it is difficult to judge the right exposure settings. You only need to press the shutter and the camera does the rest.
What are the physical features?
The X-T30 is compact and lightweight and weighs just 383g. The shape has been designed for enhanced stability when holding the camera.
The selector buttons at the back of the camera have been replaced by a focus lever as can be seen in the image below.
What are the video features?
As far as video is concerned, thanks to the 4th generation image sensor and processor, the FUJIFILM X-T30 has some awesome 4K video recording features. It actually records in 6K (6240x3510) to produce stunning quality in 4K (3810x2160). The Fujifilm X-T30 can shoot 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 120 fps.
The camera also supports the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) 4K format at 17:9, which gives an even more cinematic look to the videos. Last but not the least, F-Log recording and 4:2:2 10bit output via the HDMI port are also supported making the camera suitable to produce professional videos. You can also shoot 4K movies using any of the Film Simulation modes available on the X-T30 ETERNA, is particularly suitable for video thanks to its subdued colors 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.
What about face detection and eye detect?
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. Watch the performance in the video below.
