The Fujifilm X-T30 is a mirrorless DSLR camera with an interchangeable lens. It has a good image quality with a great autofocus performance, so you can take pictures that are sharp and relatively free of visible noise even at high ISO levels. It also supports 4k and FHD video recording, and while its 4k video quality is good, there's a bit more visible noise when you record in FHD. While this camera is portable and lightweight, users with larger hands may find it a bit uncomfortable to hold while shooting.
The Fujifilm X-T30 is good for travel photography. It has good image quality, so your images are clear and detailed. Its impressive autofocus system can help keep moving objects in focus, too. Its low minimum shutter speed also helps you take long exposure photographs. It's very portable, but people with larger hands may find it difficult to get a comfortable grip.
The Fujifilm X-T30 is good for landscape photography. It has a good image quality, so your images are sharp and without a lot of visible noise. There's also manual focus assistance to help you get a clear shot, and it has a well-built, portable design. While its lens lets in a lot of light, it has some noticeable light falloff that can make the corners of your shot look darker than the middle.
The Fujifilm X-T30 is satisfactory for sports and wildlife photography. Its shooting speed is just okay, so you may have some difficulty getting clear images of fast-moving subjects. That said, this camera has a good image quality, so your pictures don't have a lot of visible noise. Also, its autofocus system is impressive, which helps keep the focus on moving subjects.
The Fujifilm X-T30 is decent for vlogging. It has decent FHD video quality, and it produces an even sharper image when recording in 4k. It's portable, and it does an amazing job smoothing out camera shake if you're running or walking while filming. However, its screen isn't fully articulated, and you can't flip it around to see yourself while you film.
The Fujifilm X-T30 is good for studio video. Its video quality in FHD is decent, and there's even less visible noise present when you record in 4k. It also has a lot of inputs and outputs for videography accessories like a microphone and an external recorder. However, with recording time limits of 10 minutes in 4k and 15 minutes in FHD, it's not really ideal for long recording sessions.
The Fujifilm X-T30 is poor for action video. It isn't really designed for this use, as it can't be mounted on a helmet and isn't dust or water-resistant. It has a high-speed recording mode in FHD that captures footage at 120 fps, but it can only shoot 4k up to 30 fps. That said, its video stabilization performance in 4k and FHD is amazing, so your video is free of camera shake even if you're running while filming.
The Fujifilm X-T30 comes in several different color variants: 'Black', 'Silver', and 'Charcoal Silver'. We tested the 'Black' variant with the FUJINON XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4 R lens, and you can see its label here. We expect the other color variants to perform similarly.
You can also purchase this camera in each color scheme with the FUJINON XC 15-45mm F/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens or without a lens at all, but we haven't tested the performance of these variants.
If you come across another version, let us know in the discussions so we can update our review.
The Fujifilm X-T30 II is a refreshed version of the Fujifilm X-T30. The cameras look almost identical on the outside, though the Mark II has a higher-resolution tilting screen. The X-T30 II also has internal upgrades, including a newer autofocus system, a slightly larger photo buffer, and longer video recording time limits. Overall, it's a solid improvement, but if you already own an X-T30, it isn't different enough to warrant an upgrade.
If you want longer recording times, check out the Fujifilm X-T30 II, which can record 4k video for up to 30 minutes.
Update 12/21/2021: Like other Fujifilm cameras we've tested, the X-T30 has a high-speed recording mode that can capture 1080p footage at 120 fps for slow-motion playback, though using this feature incurs a slight crop.
