FUJIFILM X30

Feature 3Three pillars that support the distinguished performance of the FUJIFILM X30

Focused on bringing you the ultimate image quality 2/3-inch 12M X-Trans CMOS II Sensor

Featuring Fujifilm's bespoke pixel array, the FUJIFILM X30 captures high quality images with its large 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor. And you'll be able to enjoy high-speed continuous photography and Full HD movie shooting thanks to the high performance CMOS element of the sensor.

OLPF-less architecture and 2/3-inch 12M X-Trans CMOS II sensor processing capture your world with crystal clarity.

Originally developed by FUJIFILM for the FUJIFILM X30, the 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor inherits the same architecture and features of the high performance sensor found in the acclaimed FUJIFILM X-T1. Adoption of BSI (backside illumination) technology enables the successful incorporation of phase detection pixels into the array without affecting sensitivity performance- the key to FUJIFILM X30's high-speed AF.

Advanced technology and processing help transfer the power of the lens into true to life photos.

X-Trans CMOS II adopts an original color filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. This lets the sensor directly capture the high resolution performance of the FUJIFILM X30 lens. Also exploiting the enhanced performance of the EXR Processor II, Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) factors are calculated to compensate for aberrations and diffraction blur that occur when light passes through the lens and then are applied to produce images with amazing sharpness.

Speed and responsiveness come from the synergy between sensor and processor

The blazing image processing performance of the EXR Processor II not only produces images with increased resolution and higher quality at higher speeds, but also accelerates operational responses. This LSI improvement also speeds up operation, reducing start-up time to only about 0.5 sec.** Working in tandem with the high-speed signal readout of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor, the processor reduces the shooting interval to 0.3 second, cuts shutter time lag to approx. 0.01 sec., and raises the maximum continuous shooting speed to 12fps.

High-speed 12fps Continuous Shooting

The combination of the processing speed of the EXR Processor II and fast readout speed of the X-Trans CMOS II sensor enables high-speed 12fps continuous shooting at full 12-Megapixels resolution. This is particularly useful when shooting moving subjects and later selecting the best shot.

Bright F2.0-F2.8 FUJINON 4x Manual Optical Zoom Lens

The lens features superb F2.0-2.8 brightness and a 4x optical zoom that promises high-resolution optical performance across the entire range from 28mm*** wide angle to 112mm*** telephoto. From the aspheric and ED lenses to high-refractive index lens, every element in the design is made from high-performance optical glass and treated with a multi-layer HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) for high resistance to ghosting and lens flare.

The Metal Cam-driven Mechanism

The metal cam-driven mechanism and a special grease originally developed ensure that magnification is precisely on-target, and the smooth high-precision zoom operates perfectly.

Bright lens performance across the zoom range plus highly effective optical image stabilization.

With a maximum aperture of F2.0 at wide angle and F2.8 at its maximum telephoto setting, this zoom is an extremely bright lens that can produce beautiful defocused effects across the zoom range. The built-in OIS (optical image stabilization) mechanism delivers an image stabilizing effect equivalent to 3.0-stop*4 and is extremely effective in preventing blurring caused by camera shake or subject movement.

All-glass 9-groups/11-elements Configuration - Obsessed with Excellence -

In order to maintain the FUJIFILM X30's compact shell whilst ensuring high image quality, Fujinon has adopted lenses made of glass with superior optical characteristics for all elements in the 9-groups/11-elements configuration. The design incorporates an arrangement of aspheric lenses, ED lenses and high-refractive index lenses, and are treated with Fujinon's originally developed Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating).
