A year and a half year since the introduction of the Fuji X20, Fujifilm presents its successor - the compact Fuji X30.
This high-class prosumer camera, aimed at professionals, enthusiasts and advanced amateurs, inherited from its predecessor a 2/3" 12MP X-Trans II CMOS sensor with the primary color filter, an EXR II processor, as well as a 28-112mm f/2.0-2.8 lens with optical stabilization and 4x zoom. The novelties that have been introduced by the X30 are a tilting 3" LCD with the resolution of 920,000 pixels, an XGA OLED electronic viewfinder (the largest, brightest and fastest in its class), a control wheel around the lens, a built-in Wi-Fi, as well as a much longer battery life.
The Fuji X30 also features a new Classic Chrome film simulation mode, which brings muted tones and deep color reproduction that result in amazing images. There are eleven different modes at one's disposal and all of them simulate the effects of traditional Fujifilm films. The modes in question are the following: color reversal film effects (Velvia / PROVIA / ASTIA / CLASSIC CHROME), professional color negative film (PRO Neg.Std / PRO Neg.Hi), monochrome filters (MONOCHROME, Ye filter, R filter and G filter), as well as SEPIA.
The Fujifilm X30 will appear on the market in September this year, priced at $599.95, and it will be available in black and silver/black.
