FUJIFILM X30 Overview

  • 1Description

The black Fujifilm X30 Digital Camera is an update to the X20, adding a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, a larger 3" 920k-dot tilting rear LCD screen, a second control ring to adjust aperture and shutter speed settings, and a Classic Chrome film simulation mode. It features a 12 megapixel 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II sensor and an EXR Processor II to provide high quality imagery at up to 12 fps, and a sensitivity range to ISO 12800. This sensor uses a randomized pixel array, removing the need for an optical low-pass filter, thereby allowing the camera to produce sharp and clear imagery.

The main improvement in this camera over the X20 is the a 0.65x-magnification 2.36m-dot OLED Real Time EVF, with adaptive brightness and orientation settings, and only a 0.005 second lag time. For menu navigation and image review, a 3" 920k-dot LCD screen is located on the rear of the camera. The screen tilts to aid in low-angle shooting.

The Intelligent Hybrid AF system uses both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus as fast as 0.06 sec. The built-in lens is a 28-112mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.0-2.8 lens that integrates three aspheric and two extra-low dispersion glass elements to help reduce aberrations and improve image sharpness and quality.

Full HD movie recording is supported up to 1920 x 1080p at 60fps with a 36Mbps bit-rate for clear, fluid-looking videos. Zoom and exposure can be manually controlled during recording, and stereo audio can be recorded using an optional external microphone.

The X30's film simulation takes advantage of Fuji's long history of film production, allowing you to choose between eleven different Fuji films, as well as the Classic Chrome simulation that provides muted tones and deep color reproduction.

Real-Time Electronic Viewfinder
With a large magnification of 0.65x and a display lag time of just 0.005, the X30's EVF offers a clear, high-definition Live View with a new 2.36M-dot organic EL viewfinder and dedicated lens that improves visibility by automatically controlling the viewfinder's brightness according to the ambient light levels. The Live View display can also be set to reflect shooting conditions, or offer a natural view close to what is seen with the naked eye, while the viewfinder's eye sensor automatically switches the visible information when the camera is positioned vertically or horizontally.
12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II Sensor
A large 2/3" CMOS image sensor is integrated into the X30 to provide high image quality and detail. Using Fujifilm's unique X-Trans bespoke pixel array, the sensor is designed with a randomized pixel pattern to eliminate the need of an optical low-pass filter for reducing moiré and aliasing. By removing this filter from the design, higher image sharpness is possible. This image sensor also utilizes backside illumination technology to help with the integration of phase-detection pixels into the sensor for improved autofocus performance without affecting image quality. The X-Trans sensor also pairs well with the EXR Processor II to provide highly effective noise reduction and a clean signal-to-noise ratio. This enables smoother-looking imagery that becomes especially apparent when photographing in low-light situations.
EXR Processor II
Aside from benefitting low-light performance, the EXR Processor II also provides quick performance throughout the entire camera system. The camera start-up time is about 0.5 second, shutter lag is about 0.01 second, and the shooting interval time is about 0.5 second. Additionally, this processing power provides enough speed to capture up to 12fps for 11 consecutive frames.
Fujinon 28-112mm f/2.0-2.8 Lens
The built-in 4x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-112mm with a fast maximum aperture of f/2.0-2.8. The inclusion of aspheric and extra-low dispersion elements helps to reduce the appearance of aberrations throughout the zoom range while also significantly contributing to overall image sharpness. Lens elements are treated with a multi-layer HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to minimize lens flare and ghosting while shooting for greater light transmittance and contrast within imagery. The metal lens barrel is used to manually control your zoom magnification as well as control the on/off power setting to the camera. This intuitive control method gives you the ability to quickly turn on your camera to record imagery while holding the camera at an eye-level position. Benefitting the lens and especially low-light shooting, a lens-shift type optical image stabilization (OIS) system is integrated into the design to counter the effects of camera shake up to four stops. This OIS system also enhances image sharpness when working as closely as 0.4" / 1cm in Super Macro mode.
Intelligent Hybrid AF
Intelligent Hybrid AF is a quick, responsive autofocus system that employs both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus quickly in a wide variety of shooting situations. Clear focus can be attained in as little as 0.06 second to aid in catching fast-paced movement more easily.
An efficient graphical user interface promotes greater intuitiveness for menu navigation and monitoring. The Q Button gives a one-touch solution to modifying commonly used camera settings quickly and easily. Menu and setting navigation is done on the rear 3" 920k-dot LCD that also provides high definition playback of still images and video.
Full HD Movie Capabilities
Full HD movie recording is possible with multiple frame rates and formats up to 1920 x 1080p at 60fps to produce smoothly-depicted movement. A high bit-rate of 36Mbps enables greater clarity when shooting video.

Film Simulation Mode
Pulling from Fujifilm's line of transparency films, the X30 provides a wide selection of effects with the Film Simulation Mode. PROVIA offers natural-looking tones for everyday shooting, VELVIA produces a more dramatic and rich tonality with deeper color saturation, and ASTIA gives less contrast for a softer depiction of skin tones. Classic Chrome delivers muted tones and deep color reproduction. Mimicking their negative films, PRO Neg. Std. gives smooth image tones that are suitable for accurate color renditions, while PRO Neg. Hi produces a more dramatic feel with the ability to draw color out of a variety of lighting conditions. In addition to the colorful benefits of these Film Simulation modes, there are also monochrome modes that simulate the look of traditional yellow, green, and red black and white contrast filters. A sepia mode is also available for producing a nostalgic look.
RAW Shooting
An in-camera RAW converter lets you record your images in RAW and process them prior to computer-based editing procedures. This process enables you to modify the exposure, white balance, and other controls directly through the menu interface. Additionally, for more thorough processing of files, SILKYPIX software is included for RAW conversion and processing on your computer.

    FUJIFILM X30 Reviews

    X30 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An impressive package The X30 is a replacement for my X20. When first announced I thought I'd keep my X20 but the new features made a compelling argument to upgrade. First, the EVF is fast and accurate. I appreciate knowing exactly what will be in the image. And I can use a lens hood without blocking my view. The tilting display is great for macro work. I like the increased +/-EV range. And the new lens ring is much better than the X20 rear control wheel. Finally, much longer battery life. Each new feature is a 10-20% improvement but taken together, trading up to the X30 was an easy decision. It's a great alternative to my D700 for casual photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it. We were headed on vacation, on a sailboat and I didn't want to lug my old Nikon D300. That camera is wonderful, but heavy and large. My normal go-to recommendation to friends and family was sold out (Cannon G models) and so I took a chance on this camera. I am really impressed with it. It takes great photos, it is easy to use, it is large enough that I found it felt really secure in my hands, yet small enough to stash away quickly and easily. I was most impressed with the quality of low light photos. I will never stop loving my D300, but for a vacation where photography is not my purpose, I was really happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would certainly buy this camera again I have commented on this camera before owing to the joys and some frustrations with it. Fortunately, the B&H support team came to my rescue because the so-called support page at Fujifilm's web site doesn't even mention this camera at all. Point-blank, don't expect any help from Fujifilm when buying the latest and greatest in their line of fine cameras. It's like visiting one of the web/blog sites that has't been updated since 2012. Which makes the help from the B&H support staff so important. Larry patiently listened to my concerns via Live Chat and provided the answers not available in my owner's manual. So, buy this camera as a great addition or replacement to your photo gear. It is an amazing tool prompting me to consider the latest Fujifilm creation: the X-Pro 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than The Original By the original I mean the X-10, which I loved, and regretted passing along to my brother-in-law a few years ago. Picked the X-30 up a few weeks ago when I sent my D750 off for a shutter-issue recall, and I'm having as much fun with it as I did the X-10. The built-in EVF is a great addition, and the loss of the AA filter improved the resolution. Makes a terrific walk-around camera when you want to be ready for almost anything, but don't feel like lugging a DSLR and a wide-to-tele zoom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ! for my needs Finally, it is all in one medium package. Coming from years of film SLR's, this little camera fits my work and is great for walking. For a small sensor, the pictures are rich and detailed. The lens is fast and sharp. The film simulations of B&W, Chrome and Astia give me a nice range of beautiful looks. The viewfinder is as nice as my X-T1. The controls are natural and the buttons are more responsive than my X-T1. I love that I can change all the buttons to other functions, especially disconnecting the Movie Record Red Button. I wish the bracket options could be for 2,3 and 4 shots rather than just 3. Also, I wish the film simulation bracketing would also give you the option to have a RAW file shot simultaneous with the Film Look JPEG's. I feel the size is perfect because I think many of the competitors cameras are too small. I find I take this little machine with me everyday rather than the much heavier X-T1 and lenses. I just wish that the wide angle would start at a wider 24mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for street and casual use It's a neat camera. Lots of features in a small package. I had a Panasonic LX7 and I used it a LOT, then I had the opportunity to try the X30. They have about the same performance, but the LX7 ergonomics and AF are way better. The X30 has nice optics, great battery life but low light performance is not that great. Not bad but not great. The EVF is one of the best I've tried. Not very compact but nice to carry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for on the go! This camera is perfect camera for travel and everyday use. It is so easy to take with you every where! It is simple to use and takes great photos. The image quality is great for a small point and shoot camera. I love that it can be fully manually and the extra control it gives you. It is also super quiet which makes it a great street photography camera. It is a wonderful camera that makes shooting fun. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little travel camera I use this camera anytime I need a very light pocket camera with a zoom. While it doesn't have the full frame sensor of its Sony competitor, the 24-118 zoom, brilliant electronic view finder, and manual focus options are excellent. Built in flash is very handy for fill. Fast enough for street, good enough to blow up to reasonable sizes. Half the price of the comparable Sony. Downsides: smaller sensor, some software is less calibrated with Fuji. If you need a pocket camera with a zoom, consider this one.
