Boasting a new 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 Quad-Core CPU, the X-T30 provides beginners, advanced amateurs, and professionals with fast auto-focus, strong face detection, and power to create high-resolution stills with notable sharpness and clarity. Combined with its increased sensitivity range up to ISO 51200 and the ability to record 10-bit, 4:2:2 DCI 4K video through the camera’s HDMI port, the X-T30 is truly the perfect camera for releasing your creativity. Professional Performance: The 26.1MP BSI APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor and X-Processor 4 quad-core CPU combination with AF and Face Detection performance when tracking moving subjects, while also providing all-around performance when capturing high-resolution stills or recording 4K video. Advanced Image Quality: The new X-Processor 4 Quad Core-CPU doubles the speed of face-detection for moving people. Additionally, eye-detection AF now works in AF-C mode, which results in accurate focus-tracking for moving portrait subjects. The low-light limit for phase detection AF has been expanded even more from the conventional +0.5EV to -3EV, to allow for operation in a wide range of lighting scenarios. Superior Video and Image Effects: Offers the ability to record 4K video at 30 frames per second or capture of 120 frames per second at 1080p to create super slow motion effects. Filmmakers needing more color fidelity can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 color through the camera’s HDMI port. Leveraging Fujifilm’s advanced color reproduction technology, users are able to record video in Film Simulation’ modes. The X-T30 also incorporates numerous shooting functions, such as “monochrome adjustments” available for ACROS and Monochrome, and “Color Chrome” effect that produces deep colors and gradation in subjects with highly saturated colors, which are notoriously difficult to photograph. Easy-to-Use Design: Offers 3.0-inch touch LCD with 2-way tilting and improved touch screen to capture images efficiently in challenging situations. Provides advanced SR Auto mode - easily activated with a lever - to automatically choose the optimum shooting settings for a given scene out of 58 presets.

Fujifilm XF 16mm F2.8

The FUJINON XF16mmF2.8 R WR is part of a collection of lenses within the XF family that are affordable, compact, weather-resistant and lightweight. It should be thought of in the same group as the XF23mmF2 R WR, XF35mmF2 R WR and XF50mmF2 R WR lenses because of their price point and how they fit together as a collection of affordable prime lenses in our XF Lens System. High Resolution Performance - Edge-to-edge sharpness from the center to the corners of the frame is achieved by the precise arrangement of 10 lens elements in 8 groups. This lens also includes two aspherical elements, which serve to suppress the image degrading effects of chromatic aberration and field curvature imperfection. Compact, Lightweight and Stylish design - Weighing in at 5.47oz (155g) and measuring just 1.79in (45.4mm) in length, this lens offers up the renowned image quality and refined style associated with the FUJINON XF family of lenses. With its metal exterior, precise click stops, and smooth dampening, this lens offers incredible image quality in a durable aesthetically pleasing appearance. Fast and Quiet Autofocus - The inner focusing AF system uses a stepping motor to move focusing elements into place through precise electrical pulses, in order to achieve fast and near-silent autofocus performance. Weather and Dust Resistant Durability - The lens is designed to operate in temperatures as low as 14° Fahrenheit and is sealed at nine points around the barrel, making it both weather and dust resistant.
