The FUJIFILM X30 - a camera of functional beauty

With its practical features - a real-time viewfinder, large handgrip, tiltable LCD monitor, improved battery performance and dual control ring - the X30 still maintains its classic styling

The fastest, largest and highest resolving electronic viewfinder in its class*

Surpassing optical versions, the FUJIFILM X30's high-resolution real-time organic EL viewfinder offers an unrivalled view of the world. Clear, vivid and richly detailed thanks to its 2.36 million dot resolution, dedicated lens and adjustable controls, composition is flawless even in sunny conditions. The brightness automatically adjusts to the scene or can be set manually, allowing a range of shots only possible when shooting with a viewfinder. It all adds up to a view that will take purists back to the basic joy of shooting.

Electronic viewfinder with high quality dedicated lens

The FUJIFILM X30's 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinder provides such a luxuriously seamless view that you'll fast forget it's not a traditional optical type. Making its wide, clear and bright perspective possible is a special high-precision four-element lens and compared to the FUJIFILM X20, with its optical viewfinder, magnification has risen to 0.65x** now giving complete, 100% coverage, letting you compose with confidence.

Real-time viewfinder with the world's shortest display time lag of 0.005 seconds***

With a display lag time of just 0.005 seconds***, the FUJIFILM X30's real-time viewfinder is almost indistinguishable from an optical version. This means you can concentrate on the scene, distraction free, and follow moving subjects with ease. The Graphical User Interface included in the viewfinder can be positioned outside of the display for the clearest possible view and the image rotates smoothly when rotated to a vertical or horizontal shooting position. It all adds up to the best-possible view.

  • **Market leading viewfinder magnification ratio. Approx. 0.65x magnification 50mm (35mm format equivalent) at infinity and diopter set to -1.0 m-1.

To accommodate its real-time viewfinder, dual control ring and high-capacity battery, the FUJIFILM X30 has undergone a radical redesign. The FUJIFILM X20 has been updated to a body with a solid, functional beauty. The larger handgrip, which improves handling and helps users compose through the viewfinder, is complemented by a tiltable LCD monitor and an upper control deck with a classic design. The camera's footprint is compact and sturdy thanks to its magnesium body, metal dials and lens barrel.
