Fuji X30, small but great.


Recommended Posts

I've had my X30 since January this year after upgrading from an X10 which unfortunately was damaged in a careless crushing incident at the Brno Moto GP race last year :( I'm loving the X30, it takes great pictures and the new features are fantastic. It's really handy being able to download images on my phone, do a quick edit in snapseed and have them online within minutes of taking them, that's a great addition. The tilting screen is also a big plus point and I find myself using it a lot to get those tricky angles as well as sneakier street style stuff. Could it do with a bigger sensor? Of course but it is what it is and I think it's a fantastic little camera, bring it with me everywhere and take 90% of my photos with it. I was torn between getting the X30 and an XM1 and I think I made the right decision for my needs. Would absolutely love an XT10 though, oof!

 

Here's two landscape shots taken on "Frank" as I call my X30, "Fred" was my X10 who did a great job also, really liked that sensor.

RIP Fred and welcome Frank!

 

The X-M1 would be slightly larger due to the interchangeable lens I think. Although it has one of the best colors and high ISO performance in a relatively affordable package.

 

The X-T10 would be great for chasing action.

I was looking for something to replace my LX7 when I moved from Micro Four-Thirds. I had an XM1 but found it a little too big for a "take everywhere" camera, because the X mount lenses are quite large.Today a mint used X30 arrived, and I have to say I love it already. Yes, of course the sensor could do with being bigger, and I would like it to have a 10x zoom lens and fit in my trouser pocket, but it is always about compromise and for me this is the perfect "little camera" to use when I don't want to carry the X-T1.

I agree with the small but great statement.  I just got myself a 2nd hand X30 from one of the forummers in Singapore.  Loving it.

 

Used to have an X10 but sold it away because of weird colour problem.  Red becomes DARK red instead and as it was a 2nd hand unit, sold it away.

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again. 
    • Same here with a x h2s connected to a raveneye, losing the raveneye made my recording stop 😭

    • Hey All! I'm new here and desperate! I just upgraded from my XT3 to an XT5 and need tethering advice. A huge part of what I do is tethered shoots and I've been successfully tethering my XT3 with Fuji Tether Pro Plugin to Lightroom for years. It is essential that the software can fully control the camera. First of all it was very difficult to update the existing plugin. You have to remove it and reinstall it,  which doesn't work properly.  In the end,  I had to manually unzip the downloaded update file and enter in the code myself. More importantly.  The update does allow you to focus and take photos but the settings control doesn't work. That's means you can not adjust ISO,  Shutter speed or f-stop with the software. These buttons simply don't work when you click them. Has anybody else experienced this?  Is there perhaps a previous version of the update does work? Has anybody managed to tether with Capture one?  I read there are also bugs. I'm willing to switch systems if it fully works. If I can't fix it I'm stuck with an Xt5 that I paid a lot of money for that I can not use for its intended purposes.
