New Fujifilm X-T30 will hit South Africa this March

Fujifilm has launched its brand new the X-T30, reminiscent of last year’s flagship X-T3.

The camera has been dubbed as a ‘Little Giant’ by the company, which claims the device is “small but highly capable”.

“The X-T30 combines a new sensor and processing engine with an Auto Mode Selector and focus point lever to help both the amateur and professional alike,” said Fujifilm in a press release.

The camera weighs 383g and features the X series’ traditional vintage design, along with a new Focus Lever for “shifting a focus point easily, intuitive operability of the tilting 3” touch-screen panel”.

It also shows off improvements to AF tracking and face/eye detection, which was already quite outstanding with the X-T3.

“The AF algorithm has been further improved from that used in the flagship FUJIFILM X-T3,” the company noted.

Other features include:

  • 26.1 MP, X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor
  • Continuous shooting up to 30 fps
  • 4K video recording

The camera is set to launch in SA this March, and will come in Silver and Black variations only, though Fujifilm says a Charcoal Silver version will eventually hit the market.

Fujifilm SA cannot confirm what the X-T30 will cost in South Africa.

The company also released a new, 155g 16mm lens, wich “boasts high-speed AF performance, making it ideal for casual snapshots and landscape photography”.
