The FUJIFILM X-T30 combines a sleek mirrorless camera with next-generation image-making technology to meet the ever-increasing needs of content creators, regardless of their skill level. Boasting a new 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad-Core CPU, the X-T30 provides beginners, advanced amateurs, and professionals with fast auto-focus, strong face detection, and power to create high-resolution stills with notable sharpness and clarity. Combined with its increased sensitivity range up to ISO 51200 and the ability to record 10-bit, 4:2:2 DCI 4K video through the camera’s HDMI port, the X-T30 is truly the perfect camera for releasing your creativity.
Back-illuminated 26.1 megapixel image sensor
The FUJIFILM X-T30 features the X Series' Fourth Generation X Trans CMOS 4 Sensor. Boasting a resolution of 26.1MP, the sensor uses the unique X-Trans color filter array to reduce moire and false colors, all without the need for an optical low pass filter. Additionally, its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality, while reducing noise levels and extending the native ISO to ISO160.
The new X-Processor 4 has a quad-core design, which make use of the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor's full potential. In fact, this combination is the driving force behind the camera's Enhanced Film Simulation Modes, it's advanced auto-focus tracking capability, and high-quality 4K/30P video capabilities.
You can select "Program," "Shutter Speed Priority," "Aperture Priority" and "Manual" by using a combination of the Shutter Speed Dial and the Aperture Ring on the lens. The Exposure Compensation Dial also allows you to adjust exposure by up to ±5 stops*.

When using the Advanced SR Auto mode, the camera automatically selects the optimum shooting settings from 58 preset scenes.
When the Advanced SR Auto mode is selected, the camera examines the scene and automatically selects optimum autofocus and exposure settings. This mode is useful for situations where it is difficult to determine the right exposure settings. You only need to press the shutter to obtain high-quality images and capturing perfect photo opportunities.
Faster and more accurate AF performance
The number of AF phase detection pixels in the sensor have been increased to 2.16 million and now cover the entire frame (approx. 100%). This enables fast and accurate auto-focusing. Additionally, The low-light threshold for phase detection AF has been also expanded from +0.5EV in previous-generation camera systems to -3.0EV.
Mechanical Shutter and Electronic Shutter
The FUJIFILM X-T30 can shoot continuously at up to 8.0fps in full resolution when using the mechanical shutter, and offers the Sport Viewfinder mode, which shoots pictures within a cropped area representing approx. 16.6 megapixels (1.25x crop), marked within the viewfinder view, so that you can check the movements of a subject even before it comes into the shooting frame. By using the electronic shutter, the FUJIFILM X-T30 supports blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30fps*. When the electronic shutter is selected, you can also choose the Silent mode.

Face- and eye-detection AF
The tracking performance of the “Face- and Eye-detection AF” is twice as good as previous models. The FUJIFILM X-T30 maintains accurate focus on people from the front or side in scenes which were notoriously difficult to track. The eye-detection AF is also supported in the AF-C mode, focus-tracking subject’s eyes in portraiture that involves movements. The eye-detection AF can be configured to priority-focus on either right or left eye or the eye closest to the camera. It is a powerful tool in portrait photography, which demands focus accuracy with a shallow depth of field.
"Face Select" function to make sure to capture an important subject
When there are multiple faces within the frame, you can select a specific person on the touchscreen panel or with the Focus Lever so that autofocus and exposure settings are optimized for the subject. “Face Select” is a perfect tool when shooting commemorative photos or shooting a specific person in a large crowd in sports or other events.
4K/30P Video Recording and High Resolution Digital Audio
Thanks to the 4th generation image sensor and processor, the FUJIFILM X-T30 boasts superb 4K video recording features. It actually records in 6K (6240×3510) to produce stunning quality in 4K (3810×2160). The camera also supports the DCI format (17:9), which gives an even more cinematic look to your videos. The FUJIFILM X-T30 adopts high resolution audio recording without the need for additional accessories. Finally, F-Log recording and 4:2:2 10bit output via the HDMI port are also supported making the camera suitable to produce more professional, fully fledged videos.
The Face- and Eye-detection AF during Video Recording
Face and eye-detection AF is also available when recording video. Together with the “Face Select” function, you can switch who is in focus while recording by using the touchscreen panel or the Focus Lever.
4K video with Film Simulation modes
You can shoot 4K movies using any of the Film Simulation modes. ETERNA, is particularly suitable for video thanks to its subdued colors and rich shadow tones, giving a cinematic look. ACROS delivers monochrome video with fine textures and rich gradation, while CLASSIC CHROME creates a unique atmosphere, reminiscent of vintage reversal films. Velvia gives an option of giving high saturation to video imagery.
FUJIFILM's unique Film Simulation modes
A total of 16 Film Simulation options are available, producing rich colors and tones that reflect your creative intentions just as if you were swapping between different types of photographic films. This is a function exclusive to FUJIFILM, developed with the company’s color presentation philosophy and know-how perfected over 80 years of manufacturing photographic film. Diverse options available include PROVIA and Velvia, named after FUJIFILM’s own photographic films, as well as ETERNA, which emulates the tones of motion pictures, CLASSIC CHROME, suitable for documentary photos, as well as two types of monochrome filters including ACROS.
High performance electronic viewfinder
The FUJIFILM X-T30 features a 2.36-million-dot high resolution EVF with a magnification ratio of 0.62x.
Offering a magnification ratio equivalent to DSLRs, the display has a lag time of just 0.005 seconds and has a refresh rate of 100fps*, which allows for quick adjustments when subjects move unpredictably.
Unlike a DSLRs with optical viewfinders, the EVF helps content creators see exactly what the sensor will capture. This means film simulations and exposure effects can be shown in real-time, which ultimately assists in helping to achieve creative visions more easily.

Tilting touchscreen LCD monitor
The FUJIFILM X-T30 features a 3.0-inch tilting touchscreen LCD monitor that has a 3:2 aspect ratio and approx. 1.04 million dots. The tilting design enables easy shooting from high and low angles. All shooting information, normally displayed on the monitor, can be turned off if you want to concentrate on taking the picture.
Capacitive Touchscreen Panel
Equipped with a capacitive touchscreen panel, the FUJIFILM X-T30 allows touch-based controls during shooting, such as "Touch AF," "Touch Focus Area Selection," "Touch Shot" and "Touch Function". This capability means you can move your focus area faster and more intuitively than ever before or simply use a swipe motion to scroll through images when reviewing.
Enhanced grip and handling
The FUJIFILM X-T30 uses an eight-direction lever instead of the traditional 4-way selector buttons. This makes the camera's compact body more stable during use and makes it easier to handle. The grip thickness has also been increased to provide more hand-held comfort.
Automatic transfer with Bluetooth
The FUJIFILM X-T30 can be paired with a smart device with Bluetooth for always on connection*, enabling automatic transfer of pictures you take to share quickly on social media. The connection also enables other functions, such as remote shooting from a smartphone / computer, viewing of pictures taken on your device, and printing direct to an Instax printer.
