Updated AF-Algorithm & improved face and eye tracking
High resolution digital sound recording
X-Trans CMOS 4
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.
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.
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™*1 CMOS 4 sensor and image processing engine, in an even more compact and lightweight body.
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.
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*1. When the electronic shutter is selected, you can also choose the Silent mode.
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.
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.
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.
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.
* To use the USB Type-C terminal as a headphone jack socket, it requires a USB Type-C to Φ3.5mm stereo mini-pin jack adapter cable compatible with analog audio input/output(USB Type-C Audio Adapter Accessory Mode)
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.
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.

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.
You can select “Program,” “Shutter Speed Priority,” “Aperture Priority” and “Manual” by using a combination of the Shutter Speed Dial and the Aperture Ring on the lens. The Exposure Compensation Dial also allows you to adjust exposure by up to ±5 stops*1.
When using the Advanced SR Auto mode, the camera automatically selects the optimum shooting settings from 58 preset scenes.
Advanced SR Auto mode
When the Advanced SR Auto mode is selected, the camera examines the scene and automatically selects optimum autofocus and exposure settings. This mode is useful for situations where it is difficult to determine the right exposure settings. You only need to press the shutter to obtain high-quality images and capturing perfect photo opportunities.
