Fujifilm X-T30 II Preview -- First Impressions

by William Brawley
Preview posted: 09/02/2021

Here's what's new on the Fuji X-T30 II

The new Fuji X-T30 II is an overall minor update to the original X-T30 model, offering an improvement to the LCD and some hardware and software upgrades under the hood. First, the rear LCD monitor on the X-T30 II gets an upgrade to a higher-resolution display, going from a 1.04M-dot panel to 1.62M dots. It's also 0.8mm thicker than the original X-T30.

Secondly, Fujifilm has updated the hardware slightly, adding more RAM inside compared to the original model. Along with updated firmware in the camera, the performance of the X-T30 II is said to more closely match that of the higher-end X-T4. The camera still uses a different shutter mechanism than the X-T4, so the X-T30 II is still not at the same level in terms of continuous burst shooting performance, but autofocus algorithms and overall responsiveness of the camera are said to be more in line now with the X-T4 as well as the more recent X-S10 camera. Otherwise, the image sensor and processor as well as autofocusing system is essentially the same as in the original X-T30.

The X-T30 II, much like the "new" X-T3 WW version, also does not ship with a dedicated battery charger in the box. Owners will instead have to rely on in-camera via USB, or purchase a standalone battery charger separately.

Overall, the new Fujifilm X-T30 II is vastly similar to the original model in nearly every way.
