The Fujifilm XT-30 mirrorless lens camera launches locally in March 4

Fujifilm! Not just a veteran in the camera game, the manufacturer of some of the best DSLR cameras ever made has been looking to make a name for itself with a shift towards the mirrorless lens space. Fujifilm’s next big stab at that hardware space is undoubtedly the XT-3, but like most things in life, all the power of that high-end camera comes at a premium price tag.

So what’s a cash-strapped shutterbug supposed to do? Take a look at Fujifilm’s other camera, which still offers plenty of bang for buck. The Fujifilm X-T30 is on its way to our shores, with a release date of March 2019. What makes this camera special? Well, you’re getting a device which caters towards both amateur and professional photographers, thanks to its various modes that can be switched between based on the situation or at hand.

The AF algorithm has been further improved from that used in the flagship FUJIFILM X-T3, released in 2018, so that this 4th generation model in the X Series can deliver even more advanced AF-tracking performance. This is seen in enhanced accuracy in face/eye detection and the introduction of the Face Select function to provide priority auto-focus on a selected subject.
