Fujifilm X-T30: price and availability
The Fujifilm XT30 is currently obtainable in several configurations: body only ($ 899). However,with the 15-45mm lens ($ 999); an 18-55mm lens ($ 1,299).
Or a 35mm f / 2 lens ($ 1,298). The camera is available in all colors black, black and silver or charcoal and silver.
Fujifilm X-T30: Controls
One of the primary things you notice about the X-T30 is the chunky dials on top. If you have a 35mm film background, these controls will look familiar.
The drive wheel provides access to continuous shots, bracketing, panorama, film mode and more in the upper left area.
Next to the dial, a small lever opens the built-in flash. You can also use an external flash on the hot shoe if you want.
Go to the upper right area to find out the X-T30’s shutter speed and exposure compensation. The shutter release was perfectly positioning and threaded to accept a manual release cable for long exposure.
The front and rear dials are easily accessible and can be used to adjust settings and navigate menus. Both dials can be pressing for additional access to the grounds.
Fujifilm X-T30: Image quality
Excellent image quality is the norm for the X-T30. Colors are accurate, and even when set to Standard (Provia) film simulation, photos are well-saturated for a natural look.
For the most part, auto white balance worked well under changing lighting conditions. For example, the X-T30 did a good job capturing the vibrant colors of this marigold.
The auto white balance worked well. General, the 15-45mm kits lens delivered relatively sharp images especially given its inexpensive ($299) price tag.
Fujifilm X-T30: Design
Here the retro-styled Fujifilm X-T30 is a handsome camera with a solid build. Dense and lightweight, the X-T30 is very comfortable to hold and use.
Though the grip is a bit shallow for larger hands, the dials are sizing to be a good fit for any pair of hands.
Though the electronic viewfinder (EVF) is a little small, it’s usually bright. The 3-inch tiltable touchscreen is receptive to touch.
Here Touch focus and touch shutter work well, and you can swipe and pinch/zoom images in Playback mode.
And also, it’s a little less responsive when using touch to change settings in the Quick menu (the joystick and command dials are faster). You can’t steer the main menus by touch, though.
However, the small, on-camera pop-up flash illuminates to a distance of about 20 feet and its TTL (through the lens) metering works very well.
Though I shot these blooms close-up (probably less than a foot), the flash did not blow out the highlights on the petals.
