Fujifilm has unveiled the X-T30, its latest APS-C mirrorless camera. The X-T30 provides many of the features found in the higher-end X-T3, including its 26.1MP X-Trans sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad Core-CPU, along with some autofocus improvements that will come to the X-T3 later via a firmware update.

The X-T30 offers a hybrid AF system with 425 points across the entire frame, and boasts faster face detection compared to its X-T20 predecessor. Eye detection AF can be used in AF-C mode, and phase detection AF is now usable in lower light conditions.

On the video front, the X-T30 offers a surprisingly robust feature set including 4K/30p and 10-bit 4:2:2 output via HDMI and 8-bit 4:2:0 internal recording. That’s one of a few key differences between the X-T30 and X-T3 – upgrading to the X-T3 gets you 10-bit 4:2:0 internal and 4K/60p.

The X-T30 is an altogether smaller and lighter camera than the X-T3 (383 g / 13.5 oz compared to 539 g / 19 oz) and offers a smaller, lower-resolution viewfinder – 0.62x and 2.36M-dot to the X-T3’s 0.75x and 3.69M-dot EVF. A 3″ 1.04M-dot touchscreen tilts on one axis, and a single card slot is offered.

A new, lower native ISO of 160 is offered, and burst shooting with continuous autofocus tops out at 20 fps (8 fps with mechanical shutter). Bluetooth connectivity has been added on top of the Wi-Fi offered by the X-T20, and battery life sees a slight improvement over its predecessor as well –
