Update, 02/18/2019: After publishing, Fujifilm informed us that both the X-T30 body and the XF 16mm f/2.8 were, in fact, pre-production units. Gallery Images and First Shots have both been re-labeled as "Beta." As such, please note that these sample images are not indicative of final image quality and could changed once final production units are available.


Sporting a lot of the same tech as the higher-end, and award-winning X-T3, the brand-new Fujifilm X-T30 is compact, affordable and quite a feature-packed little camera. Just a day after its unveiling, we've managed to get our hands on the little guy and not only provide our standard series of lab sample images, but also take it out into the field for an initial round real-world gallery images.

With a 26MP APS-C sensor and all-new image processor, the X-T30 is quite the upgrade over the X-T20 -- more megapixels, faster processor, and an upgraded AF system, not to mention some impressive video specs. We're excited to dive into this camera to see if it's as impressive to use in the field as it sounds on paper. In meantime, we've had some time yesterday to gather a batch of real-world images for your enjoyment and analysis. Using its 15-45mm Power Zoom lens as well as the all-new (surprisingly small) XF 16mm f/2.8 prime, the X-T30 proved to be a lightweight, easy-to-carry camera. Given the sunny conditions yesterday, the vast majority of the gallery images so far are at low ISOs, but there are few higher ISO shots in there. Stay tuned for more on the Fuji X-T30 as we ramp-up our review!
