For a few years now I’ve been wanting a small, lightweight, carry around camera. One that I can take with me out on the streets of Chicago or hiking up a mountain. One that will produce great images but not something where I’m super concerned about high quality I’m going to post it on a billboard. For the last couple of years FujiFilm has been really upping the game when it comes to innovation and raising the bar on small, mirrorless cameras. I have always been enamored with their X100 series but it’s just at a price that I can’t justify for what I want. Then in August FujiFilm announced the coming of the X30, an update to their X20 camera. It’s a very little brother to the X100 series. I decided this was the camera I wanted for my easy to carry around camera. I recently received the X30 and here are some of the first shots I’ve taken with it. So far this little gem has been great fun to shoot with. I’ll write more about my experiences and thoughts on the X30 after I have had more time with it.

4 Thoughts on “FujiFilm X30

  1. William, these are great! Love those Fuji tones. I’ve had lots of fun with my X10 and X20 during the past few years, and have even had a number of shots published from those cameras. You’ll find that even if it’s not as high quality as a DSLR, having a camera with you that you enjoy using is what counts. Welcome to the club! ;) -DB

    • Dan, thanks for the kind words. It’s definitely nice to have an extremely portable camera that can produce great shots. Good to hear of your experiences with the X10 and X20. So far I’m very pleased with the film emulation options, they do produce some great results. I’m p[articularly surprised by the B&W with Red, Yellow, and Green filter options.
