Not too long ago I wrote an article on why I think the Fujifilm X-T20 is still the camera I recommend in 2021. It had great response, but some people thought the X-T30 was clearly the superior camera. In this article we’ll look at the positive and negatives of each camera.
The Canon EOS RP isn’t the only new camera being announced today. The hotly anticipated (and much rumoured) Fujifilm X-T30 is now officially here. It sees some rather nice upgrades over the previous generation X-T20 announced back in January 2017. It maintains the same size 1.5x crop APS-C CMOS X-Trans sensor, but with a bump from 24.3 to 26.1-megapixels.
The X-T30 sees some new shooting aspect ratios, along with slight increase in video shooting resolution, offering 4K DCI. The autofocus system also gets a boost, going from 91 Hybrid AF points in the X-T20 to 425 phase detection AF points in the X-T30. And when it comes to stills shooting speed, that’s increased from an already impressive 14fps up to 20fps.
