・ The X-T30 II is equipped with the 26.1MP “X-Trans™ CMOS 4” sensor and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4” to enable advanced phase-detection AF across the frame (approximately 100%). The X Series’ fastest AF speed of 0.02 seconds is coupled with an impressive AF tracking performance to capture decisive photo opportunities.
・ The camera delivers blackout-free burst shooting*2 at up to 8fps in the mechanical shutter mode and up to 30fps in the electronic shutter mode.
・The camera can also use phase-detection AF in near darkness conditions at -7.0EV*1 to accurately capture a subject in low light and dark rooms.
・The AF system uses the latest algorithm to achieve improved AF ability to accurately track a moving subject compared to the previous model. It can precisely track a subject that is moving toward and even moving away from the camera. Its Face / Eye AF function keeps a subject’s face / eyes in focus even in portrait photography that involves subject movements.
*2 High-speed continuous shooting free from blackout, in which the viewfinder blacks out, causing the photographer to lose sight of a photo subject. This is only available when the camera is in the electronic shutter mode.
Diverse Film Simulations and evolved AUTO function to deliver exceptional image quality
・The X-T30 II comes with 18 Film Simulations that simulate unique sets of colors, tonality and saturation levels, including “Classic Neg.” based on color negative films typically used in snapshots capturing day-to-day scenes, and “ETERNA Bleach Bypass,” which faithfully simulates the film processing technique of the same name. The expanded lineup allows users to choose the mode that suits each situation, as if swapping to a different photo film in the old days.
・The algorithm for the popular “AUTO” mode, which automatically adjusts settings to suit each scene, has been updated, further improving the picture quality it produces compared to the previous model. The mode automatically applies the Color Chrome Effect (blue), Clarity, D Range Priority and other settings according to a given condition, making landscapes clearer and more vivid, reproducing beautiful skin tone while accentuating blue skies and natural background in portraiture, and controlling highlight and shadow clippings in back-lit situations. The camera’s AUTO function makes it easier than ever to obtain beautiful pictures optimized for individual conditions.
Extensive video-recording functions
・The X-T30 II uses the amount of data equivalent to 6K to generate 4K video to assure high resolution. The camera can output 4K/30P video at 8 bit 4:2:0 onto an SD card, and 4K/30P video at 10 bit 4:2:2 to HDMI. Furthermore, it now supports Full HD/240P high-speed video, capable of replaying a momentary action of a fast-moving subject in slow motion in up to 10x.
Excellent operability to meet a wide range of needs
・ The camera caters to a wide range of shooting styles including a full-scale manual shooting using the shutter speed dial on the top panel, and quick snaps in the AUTO mode. The shutter speed dial allows users to check a current setting visually, so that they can prepare for the next shots even while the camera is turned off. The AUTO mode can be activated with a single-action operation of the Auto Mode Selector lever on the camera body’s top panel.
