Fujifilm X-T30 pre-production sample gallery

Given that it uses the same sensor and processor as the X-T3, it's no surprise that the Fujifilm X-T30 is capable of producing some excellent photos. We took a pre-production X-T30 all over the Seattle area and have plenty of photos for your viewing pleasure....

Shooting with the Fujifilm X-T30, the frugal flagship

The first thing that came to mind when I heard than a X-T30 was coming was "please don't be another X-T100." The X-T100 was a camera which sounded very promising that ended up being a big disappointment, due to its slow processor, lousy AF system and...

Pic(k) of the week 8: ANOTHER SUNSET – ANOTHER FUJIFILM CAMERA

Fujifilm X-T30 Vlogging Test in Chinatown

Designed, says Fujifilm, to meet the needs of full-scale video production, the newest APS-C sensor camera of the X family has arrived. The X-T30 costs $899, body only. While everybody was discussing the merits (or not) of Canon’s new mirrorless camera, the EOS RP, Fujifilm introduced...
