Fuji has announced a long-awaited sequel to their best-selling camera and a new go-to walkaround lens for the size and budget conscious. The X-T30and the 16mm f/2.8 are a match made in heaven.

Fujifilm has a lot of different models for their cameras, and the X-T30 is effectively an X-T3 but cheaper, smaller, and without weather sealing. You can see the specs below are almost identical to the X-T3 making this a darn good deal for anyone.

  • 26.1-megapixel APS-C X-Trans BSI CMOS 4 Sensor with native ISO of 160
  • X-Processor 4 with quad-core CPU
  • UHD 4K/30p video (no F-log present it seems), downsampled from the 6K output (same as the X-T3)
  • 425-point phase-detection autofocus down to EV -3, a claimed 1.5x improvement
  • 0.62x magnification, 2.36-million-dot electronic viewfinder
  • 3.0-inch 1.04-million-dot tilting LCD touchscreen
  • Continuous shooting up to 8 fps and up to 30 fps blackout-free with a 1.25x crop factor and the electronic shutter
  • Pop-up flash
  • 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output / 4:2:0 8-bit in-camera
  • Bluetooth
  • USB-C connectivity

While the hardware features are impressive, Fuji has also upgraded the already great autofocus abilities (which will be coming to the Fujifilm X-T3 soon in firmware update 4.1). This includes overwhelmingly improved face and eye tracking, as well as supporting smaller faces, from 10 percent of the frame down to 7 percent. There’s a brand new “Face Select” feature which can be done by touching the screen or using the AF lever, allowing you to keep track of a specific person in frame and not others. Lastly, they now have improved AF speed even when there is a large gap between near and far subjects, with non-stop phase detection through the focus pull.
