The company Fuji has just announced an update of its compact X-series camera – Fujifilm X30. In fact, it is already well known to us compact Fuji X20 (see the review of the link ) with some modifications to fit the current standards in the photography industry.
The most important thing in the camera – the matrix and the lens remains the same – a 16-megapixel X-Trans II CMOS size 3.2 “with phase sensors directly on the sensor and 28-112mm F2.0-2.8. However, as the same processor – EXR Processor II. However, he also set in the flagship, Fuji X-T1 (see the review of the link ).
The first significant difference – the built-in electronic viewfinder OLED with 1024 x 768 pixels (2.36 million), to enlarge the 0.65h and complete coverage of the field in the frame instead of the optical precursor coated 85%. In addition, it should be also very nimble with a lag of 0.005 seconds. Light sensor should adjust its brightness accordingly actual lighting conditions. When you rotate to portrait orientation will be rotated, and all the information.
In the already “old” Fuji X20 used a relatively small 2.8-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels (461k). The novelty is already crammed normal 3-inch screen with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels (922k). Moreover, it is finally turning on an axis. That will please fans of a shoot with a very low angle and at arm’s length at concerts and press events.
A little more accelerated continuous shooting up to 12 frames per second (fps 11 when shooting in JPEG at full resolution). A new battery is designed to create 470 shots instead of 270 in the X20.
Of not the most important, but all the same changes – the appearance of the control function of the ring around the lens, the new film simulation mode «Classic Chrome» and built-in Wi-Fi module for wireless transmission of pictures and use your smartphone as a remote viewfinder.
Video recording is done in Full HD format at 60 frames per second, interlaced and bit 36 Mbps.
Suggested retail price has remained the same – $ 600. A buy Fujifilm X30 in black or silver color will be in the end of September. We may be able to feel the novelty with their hands at 2014 in Cologne, where we will go.
