Fujifilm has revealed the new X30 premium compact camera. Here’s a look at the new features and improved design.
Fujifilm has announced the latest addition to their popular X-series of enthusiast cameras. The Fujifilm X30 replaces the previous X20 premium compact camera, and retains the same great 28-112mm equivalent f/2-2.8 lens, but ditches the optical viewfinder for a new electronic viewfinder. This might not appeal to fans of optical finders, but judging by their progress with the electronic finder on the Fujifilm X-T1, this may be a welcome change.
Styling wise, the X30 is a departure from the X20 and X10, with a more modern look while maintaining the retro essence. A more pronounced finger grip should improve the ergonomics, and on the back you’ll find a new tilting display.
Here’s a rundown of the key specifications, as well as an introduction to the camera by the Fuji Guys. We don’t have any local pricing or availability information yet, but we’ll keep you updated!
