Fujifilm has announced the new X30 camera, the successor to the X20. The X30 retains the classic, retro camera style but brings with it many improvements.
The X30 has a 12 megapixel, 2/3″ X-Trans CMOS II sensor with an EXR Processor II. The lens is a fixed FUJINON 28-112mm, F2.0-2.8. On the back is a new 2.36M dot electronic OLED viewfinder with 0.005 second lag time and a tilting 3.0-inch 920k dot LCD.
The camera has a Hybrid AF system with a focusing time of 0.06 seconds. The burst rate is 12 frames per second. The camera can also record videos at 1080p60. Fujifilm has added a control ring behind the lens to adjust aperture and shutter speed settings and Wi-Fi. There is also a Classic Chrome feature, which simulates the look of film with muted tones and richer colors, with multiple presets to choose from various film types.
The Fujifilm X30 will be available in late September 2014 for $599.95 in black or silver.
