Fujifilm XT-30,the little bro.


Same as Xt-3...26mp bsi sensor,quadcore processor,16 film simulations.

Smaller,lighter, cheaper, U$899 so in direct competition with $ony A6400 but with 30 lens selection.

No WR,single UHS 1 card slot,only 30fps in 4K and limited to 10mins(15 in 1080p)

Shoots Flog both internally(4.2.0 8bit) and externally(4.2.2 10bit).

Able to have headphones and microphones connected.

Usb C port for fast charging and powering.

Lots of other bells and whistles.

Looks like a nice camera, personally I find the Fujis a bit dainty for me but otherwise I like the cameras they make. If I was buying into a new system it would be hard to ignore them.

Not bad, but nothing overwhelming here... No IBIS, no WR, 8fps mechanical shutter but middling buffer, tiny battery. Looks like it has good AF, decent video, Fuji haptics & colors, nice sensor. Pricing makes it interesting, but the lenses are costly and often heavy (looking at you, 80mm macro).

80mm is a fair size,but 15-45/27/18 are all good and well priced and small/light.The XC 50-230 is an excellent cheap telephoto.These 4 are basic but can get plenty of good images.

Actually, the new 16mm F/2.8 WR looks more interesting than all of these, but deserves to be paired with a WR body, IMHO. I mean, a used DA15 - and I've almost pulled the trigger on one many times - would be at least USD$300, I think...

U$399,it fits with the other reasonably priced WR primes.

It works with non WR bodies too.

Kinda my point! It's the most interesting of the lot, IMHO.

Well, of course it does, but it kinda deserves a WR body, IMHO.

But the 750g, $CAD1200, 80mm just kills the deal. A native 1:1 macro is a must-have for me. And an X-T3 with that lens actually weighs more than a K-3ii with the D-FA 100mm WR...
