Fujifilm X30 sample gallery images posted!

One of the first cameras I reviewed for Imaging Resource was the classic-looking, oh-so-retro Fujifilm XF1. It sported the same size 2/3" X-Trans sensor (version I) as the X30, as well as the same 12mp resolution, a similar fixed-lens 4x zoom (slightly different range) and of course also proudly displayed the nifty notion that a camera doesn't really even need a clunky on-off switch (just turn the lens and start shooting!).
In addition I've been fortunate to have gotten in quite a bit of time with the higher-end fixed lens Fujifilm X100s while reviewing several of the X100 series teleconverters (WCL-X100 and TCL-X100). And while the X30 is certainly closer in overall specs to the XF1, it still shares some similar aspects of the solid build quality of the X100s (it feels like a little tank) as well as the dedicated exposure compensation dial not common at this price level, etc. Needless to say I was really looking forward to shooting with it in the real world.
Dive into our Fujifilm X30 gallery page for this first initial posting. There are 27 images, most with the corresponding RAW file, as well as EXIF data and access to the full resolution image. There are shots across the common ISO spectrum from 100 up to 4000, and a range of varying focal lengths and f/stops for inspection. Below are a few to get you started, resized to fit this page. Clicking on any of these will take you straight to the carrier page for that image, from which you can access the full resolution file and image data.
Stay tuned for more to come on the Fujifilm X30!
