The 4th Generation
Mirrorless cameras have taken the next leap in expressive capability.
The FUJIFILM X-T30 is the coming together of features developed over four generations of X Series. This includes enhanced image quality and processing speed using the combination of the latest X-Trans™* CMOS 4 sensor and image processing engine, in an even more compact and lightweight body.
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 moiré and false colors without the need for an optical low pass filter. Its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality while reducing noise levels and extending the sensitivity to ISO160.
Perfectly paired image processing engine for maximum performance
The new X-Processor 4 has a quad-core design to utilize the full potential of the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor. This combination of processor and sensor is behind the enhanced Film Simulation mode, which enables you to achieve richer colors and tones, as well as significant improvement in the camera’s ability to track a moving subject, faster and more accurate autofocus, and enhanced 4K/30P video capabilities.
Faster and more accurate AF performance
The number of phase detection pixels in the sensor has been increased to 2.16 million and the phase detection AF area covers the entire frame (approx. 100%), enabling fast and accurate autofocusing. The low-light limit for phase detection AF has been also expanded from +0.5EV in the previous-generation camera systems to -3.0EV.
Six AF Modes
AF modes available are “Single Point AF” for prioritizing focus on a single chosen point, “Zone AF” suitable for a moving subject, and “Wide / Tracking AF.” Each of them can be combined with the AF-S and AF-C modes to create six AF patterns in total.
AF-S + Single Point
Basic AF mode for focusing on a single chosen point in a subject
AF-S + Zone
Capturing a moving subject in a large AF area
AF-S + Wide
Automatically capturing a subject that makes unpredictable movements across the frame
AF-C + Single Point
Capturing a subject that makes a linear movement
AF-C + Zone
Tracking a subject that makes less-challenging movements that can be followed manually hand-held
AF-C + Tracking
Automatically tracking a subject that moves across the frame
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” for better portrait photographs
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.
This is a standard option that caters to a variety of situations. It delivers radiant skin tones and vibrant colors in what FUJIFILM calls “memory colors,” exactly as you remember them.
This option is characterized with high saturation combined with memory colors. It is perfect for landscape and wildlife photographs with rich blues and vivid primary colors, or for night scenes thanks to its deep blacks.
This option offers soft tones and high saturation at the same time, showcasing radiant skin tones and smooth gradation. It is ideal for outdoor portraits, when you want to ensure vibrant tones in the background.
This option adds an air of profound depth to pictures with subtle colors and muted tones. It is designed primarily to create a unique atmosphere, reminiscent of vintage reversal films.
ACROS (+ Ye/R/G FILTER)
This is a monochrome option, designed in pursuit for fine textures, deep blacks and rich gradation. It offers the benefit of providing fine details at low ISOs and graininess at high ISOs.
PRO Neg. Hi
This option creates high-contrast portraits even in overcast outdoor conditions or indoor situations with flat lighting. It is characterized by natural skin tones, setting it apart from other options that provide memory colors.
PRO Neg. Std

This option is characterized with subdued colors and smooth halftones in shadows, creating the atmosphere of motion pictures.
Special effects that enhance your photographic expressions even further
Color Chrome Effect “Strong”
The FUJIFILM X-T30 offers various effects that can be combined with Film Simulation modes to enhance creative flair in color tones and gradations. The special effects available include the Color Chrome effect, which produces deeper colors and gradation in subjects that contain highly saturated colors, which are notoriously difficult to photograph. The Monochrome Adjustment function faithfully reproduces warm and cool blacks in digital photos, which used to be achieved with specific photographic papers and developers. The Grain effect adds graininess, typically seen in film-based pictures, to digital photos to create an analog-like texture. The camera also provides means of adjusting highlight tones, shadow tones, sharpness and other properties.
The FUJIFILM X-T30’s reflects the X Series design philosophy.
Every element of the design has been made with the photographer in mind, from the dial-based operation to the compact, lightweight body. The FUJIFILM X-T30 uses the latest generation APS-C sensor to record every picture in the highest quality and has an aesthetically-pleasing design that evokes a passion for capturing the moment, helping to immerse yourself into the world of photography.
In addition, the camera incorporates numerous convenient features such as the touchscreen rear LCD panel and a well-hidden, built-in flash.
