Fujifilm X-T30 II Review

November 19, 2021 | Mark Goldstein | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star Half rating star


The Fujifilm X-T30 II is a new mid-range APS-C sensor mirrorless camera which was released in October 2021. It replaces the two-year-old X-T30 model.

Compared to the previous XT30, the Mark II version offers a few key improvements, including a tilting 3-inch touchscreen LCD with greater 1.62-million-dot resolution, up from 1.04-million-dots on the X-T30, the ability to focus down to -7EV versus -3EV on the X-T30, a new 1080p/240fps video mode for up to a 10x slow-motion effect, 30 minute recording limit in 4K video mode, two extra film simulations, HDR mode, an improved Auto shooting mode, and improved auto-focusing for tracking moving subjects that are moving toward or away from the camera.

The X-T30 II features exactly the same 26 megapixel X-Trans BSI CMOS 4 APS-C sensor as the X-T30, DCI 4K video recording at up to 30p in 4:2.2 10-bit via HDMI, the latest X-Processor 4 image processing engine, and an extended ISO range of 80-51200.

It also continues to provide a 2.36-million-dot 0.39-inch OLED electronic viewfinder with 100fps frame rate, 425 AF points with phase detection pixels across the entire frame (100%), Face and Eye AF including a Face Select function, and 30fps continuous shooting with the electronic shutter or 8fps with the mechanical shutter with continuous AF/AE.

The X-T30 II additionally offers a built-in pop-up flash, exposure compensation up to ±5 stops, wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity, USB charging, 380-shot battery life, interval timer shooting, in-camera raw conversion, multiple exposure and panoramic shooting modes, an ultra-fast electronic shutter that is capable of exposures up to 1/32000sec, a Focus Lever, a dedicated Auto Mode Switch Lever and a traditional threaded cable release.

The Fujifilm X-T30 II is available in two different colours - Black or Silver - priced at £769 / $899 body only, £849 / $999 with the XC 15-45mm lens, or £1099 / $1299 with the XF 18-55mm lens. The XT30 II is is manufactured in China.

Ease of Use

Fujifilm X-T30 II

The new Fujifilm X-T30 II is outwardly identical to the 2-year-old X-T30 model that it replaces, right down to the unchanged X-T30 name badge on the front, with the only visual difference between them found on the base-plate sticker on the battery compartment cover, where "X-T30 II" is displayed. Otherwise, it's impossible to tell the two cameras apart when placed side-by-side.

Commendably, at the heart of the X-T30 II is the same 26.1 megapixel APS-C sized “X-Trans IV” CMOS sensor and the same X-Processor 4 image processing engine as used by the X-T4, so the X-T30 II delivers exactly the same still image quality as Fujifilm's flagship camera, at a much more affordable price-point.

The X-T30 II is smaller and lighter than the flagship X-T4 camera, but in keeping with its mid-range status it's not weather-proof unlike its big brother, something that's important to note if you're trying to decide between the two.

The extended ISO range of 80-51200 makes the X-T30 II well suited to low-light shooting, especially as it can now focus all the way down to -7EV, allowing you to hand-hold the camera in places where you'd usually be reaching for a tripod or other support.

The clever ISO Auto Control setting allows you to set a maximum sensitivity (up to 6400) and a minimum shutter speed (1/30th is a good starting point), with the camera over-riding your ISO choice if it thinks you're being too ambitious whilst maintaining a shutter speed that won't introduce camera shake.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

The X-T30 II can record DCI 4K video (4096x2160 pixels) at frame rates of 29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p at 200Mbps/100Mbps quality for up to 4Gb of footage, using a full 6K (6240x3510pixel) read-out with no cropping.

If you don't need 4K, then full 1080p recording is also available at 60p / 50p / 30p / 25p / 24p. There's also a new 1080p/240fps video mode that provides up to a 10x slow-motion effect.

There is a HDMI port for connecting the X-T30 II to a high-definition TV or external recorder, and you can adjust the level of the internal microphone and attach an external mic for better sound quality via the shared Mic/Remote port.

Despite the increased emphasis on video recording, the X-T30 II still doesn't have a one-touch Movie Record button, which is instead assigned to the drive mode dial.

The X-T30 II features both built-in wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The latter option creates a constant, low-power connection between the X-T30 II and a smartphone/tablet to transfer images and video using the Fujifilm Camera Remote smartphone app, while the former allows you to remotely control the X-T30 II via a 2.4Ghz wi-fi connection using a smartphone or tablet and the Fujifilm app, and transfer images and video from one device to the other.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

The X-T30 II has quite a large, sculpted hand-grip at the front, although as this quite a small camera, you can only fit three fingers on it, with your little finger naturally curling underneath the bottom of the body. There's also a prominent grip on the rear of the camera for your right thumb, with the Q.menu button set into the top of it.

We're not huge fans of the position of the Q button, which proved to be overly sensitive and prone to being inadvertently pressed. There is a menu option to disable it completely, but we'd actually prefer a way of lengthening the press required to activate it to, say, 1 second, rather than turning it off altogether, as it's such a useful feature.

A textured faux-leather surface runs around the full width of the camera, with two small metal eyelets on either side of the body used for connecting the supplied shoulder strap.

A metal tripod mount is positioned slightly off-centre from the lens and next to the battery/memory card compartment, so you'll have to remove the camera from the tripod to change the battery or the memory card.

The X-T30 II still only offers compatibility with Ultra High Speed UHS-I SDXC memory cards, whereas the X-T4 is also compatible with faster UHS-II cards, and the latter also has two card slots rather than one.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

Despite this, the X-T30 II inherits the same 30fps fast continuous shooting rate that the X-T4 also offers, with full AF/AE metering and completely blackout free between frames, achieved by using the electronic shutter and maintaining the live view at 60fps.

The main caveat of the 30fps mode is that the camera automatically enters the Sports Viewfinder Mode and applies a 1.25x crop factor, dropping the resolution from 26 down to 16.6 megapixels, although there's also a benefit in that you can still see outside the cropped area, allowing you to predict where the subject is moving into the frame.

If you do want the full 26 megapixel resolution, the X-T30 II can shoot at a "slower" 20fps without any cropping, or 8fps using its mechanical shutter, both again with full AF/AE metering.

To help with capturing the precise moment, the X-T30 II also a clever Pre-shot burst shooting mode, with the camera constantly filling the buffer while your half-press the shutter button, and then keeping the most recent ones taken 0.5-1 seconds before a full press of the shutter button, eliminating any camera and human-added delay. Note that this feature only works with the electronic shutter.

The X-T30 II can record 26 JPEGs / 17 RAWs for the 30fps mode, 32 JPEGs / 17 RAWs for the 20fps mode, 81 JPEGs / 18 RAWs for the 10fps mode, and 90 JPEGs / 18 RAWs for the 8fps mode in a single burst.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

As already mentioned, the X-T30 II actually has two kinds of shutter, mechanical and electronic. When using its mechanical focal-plane shutter, it has a top shutter-speed limit of 1/4000th second in all shooting modes.

There's no built-in ND filter, so if you want to use a very fast lens in very bright sunlight, then it's a good idea to buy an actual glass ND filter. The X-T30 II also has the same flash-sync speed of 1/180th second as the previous X-T30.

The X-T30 II also has a completely silent electronic shutter which provides a much faster top shutter speed of 1/32,000th second. This allows you to continue shooting wide-open with fast aperture lenses in the brightest of conditions without having to resort to fitting a glass ND filter or using an external flash and lights.

There are some important caveats with the electronic shutter though - the ISO range is restricted to 200-6400, you can't use the pop-up flash, and the slowest possible shutter speed is only 1 second.

To make the camera even less obtrusive, when the electronic shutter is selected, there's a Silent menu option which turns off the speaker, flash, AF-assist lamp and most importantly the shutter-release sound, instantly making the X-T30 II perfectly suited to more candid photography.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

The X-T30 II's AF system offers 425 AF points in total and 2.16M PDAF pixels and it can also now focus down to -7EV when used with particular (but not all) lenses, which is a fairly significant improvement on the X-T30's -3EV. The X-T30 II is also one of the few cameras on the market to offer 100% coverage of the phase detection AF area, allowing you to literally focus anywhere that you want.

The X-T30 II additionally offers Face Detection AF during both movie recording and stills and the Face Select function allows you to use either the touchscreen or the focus lever to quickly switch between faces in the frame.

The Fujifilm X-T30 II uses exactly the same sized viewfinder as the previous X-T30, a 0.39-inch OLED unit with 2.36-million-dots, a display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and a fast 100fps frame rate.

The 3-inch touchscreen display on the rear is also mostly the same as the one on the X-T30, with the main improvement being that it now has greater 1.61-million-dot resolution. It can still only be tilted up and down, making it ideal for shooting from more unusual angles, but not so suitable for vlogging.

You can use it to set the AF point, or even fire the shutter release. On the right hand side of the screen you’ll see a small icon which if you press it allows you to choose between using the screen to set the AF point, or to have it focus and then take a picture. If you prefer, you can turn off the touchscreen functionality altogether.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

On top of the X-T30 II is a control dial for setting the shutter speed, with settings ranging from 1 second to 1/4000th second, an Auto option, a T setting for longer exposures (2 to 30 seconds, set via the circular command wheel) and a Bulb mode for exposures up to a whopping 60 minutes in length.

Surrounding the XF 18-55m kit lens is a very traditional and very welcome aperture ring, although it has no markings due to the variable aperture. This dial also allows you to choose third-stop apertures. You can also choose to use the front and rear control dials to set the shutter speed and aperture if you prefer a more DSLR-like way of working.

Alongside the shutter speed dial is another dial for changing the exposure compensation, with a range of +-5EV and a Custom setting, and on the left-hand side is a third dial for moving between the bracketing, burst, multiple exposure, advanced and panorama functions, with a switch underneath for releasing the pop-up flash.

One key difference to the X-T4 is the lack of a dedicated ISO speed dial, perhaps understandable given the X-T30 II's reduced size and different target audience, but still annoying for more experienced users. Instead, you need to dive into the menu system or use the Quick menu to set the ISO. There's also no dedicated dial for setting the metering mode.

There's a small lever on top of the X-T30 II for turning on the dedicated Auto Mode. In this Advanced SR AUTO mode, the camera automatically selects the optimum shooting settings from 58 preset scenes, including the best AF mode. More confident beginners can then use the rear Command Dial to select a specific scene type.

The algorithm for the Auto shooting mode has been updated, improving the picture quality it produces compared to the previous model. It now 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.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

While this switch makes it easy to enter full Auto mode, we did find ourselves accidentally turning it on quite a lot, as the switch is very similar to the On/Off switch and also positioned very near to it.

Four other controls complete the X-T30 II's top-plate. The small but responsive shutter release button is encircled by the On/Off switch, and there's a thread for a traditional mechanical cable release.

Alongside is the rather tiny Fn button, which by default provides quick access to the Wi-Fi options, but can be customised to suit your own needs from 12 different settings.

Further customisation is available via the 7 Custom Menu options, which let you create, save and recall up to 7 sets of user-defined settings, and no less than 7 configurable function buttons.

Finally there's an external flash hotshoe for suitable dedicated external units, along with the built-in flash which has a guide number of 5.

Fujifilm X-T30 II

The X-T30 II has a logical rear control layout. Above the LCD screen and to the left of the viewfinder are two buttons for image deletion and image playback, while on the right is the AE-L button, rear control dial and the AF-L button.

Beneath those is the Quick Menu button, set into the rear thumb grip. This provides quick access to lots of frequently used shooting settings including the ISO speed, White Balance, File Size and File Quality.

Underneath is an 8-direction Focus Lever, which is exactly the same size and works in exactly the same way as the one on the X-T4, although crucially it is positioned a little too low down the body, making it more awkward to find in a hurry.

Underneath the Focus Lever is the Menu button, which accesses the eight Shooting and Set-up menus, and finally the Disp/Back button which is used for changing the LCD display or going back.

The X-T30 II uses exactly the same NP-W126S Li-ion battery as the previous X-T30 model, providing a CIPA rated life of 380 shots. You can also recharge the camera via its USB Type-C port, though, as well as using the supplied charger, so that you can charge it from an external power-bank out in the field.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 26 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 10Mb.

The Fujifilm X-T30 II produced images of outstanding quality. It records noise-free JPEG images from ISO 80 all the way up to 6400, with a little noise at ISO 12800 and more visible noise at the faster settings of ISO 25600 and 51200, an amazing performance for a camera with an APS-C sensor. The RAW files were also excellent, exhibiting more noise but still producing very usable images from ISO 80-12800.

The night photograph was excellent, with the maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds being long enough for most after-dark shots, and the Bulb mode allowing much longer exposures if required. The Dynamic Range settings subtly improve detail in the shadows and highlights, while the Film Simulation modes hark back to a bygone era, and the Advanced Filters allow you to have a little fun with your images.


There are 11 ISO settings available on the Fujifilm X-T30 II for JPEGs and RAW files. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting.

The Fujifilm X-T30 II's maximum shutter speed is 30 seconds in the Time shutter speed mode, and there's a Bulb mode which allows exposures up to 60 minutes long, which is excellent news if you're seriously interested in night photography. The shot below was taken using a shutter speed of 15 seconds at ISO 160.


Multiple Exposure

The Fujifilm X-T30's Multiple Exposure mode, accessed via the dial on the top-left of the camera, combines two different pictures together in-camera to create one composite image.


Dynamic Range

The Fujifilm X-T30 II has three dynamic range settings - 100% (on by default), 200%, and 400% - and an Auto setting if you want to let the camera take control. These settings gradually increase the amount of detail visible in the shadow and highlight areas, with the side-effect of more noise appearing in the image. Note that you can't actually turn this feature off. All three settings are available from ISO 640 upwards.







Film Simulations

The Fujifilm X-T30 offers 12 different film simulation modes to help replicate the look of your favourite film stock from the past, including two new ones that weren't on the X-T30 - Classic Neg, which is ideal for street photography, and ETERNA Bleach Bypass which faithfully simulates the film processing technique of the same name.

The new X-T30 II is an incredibly incremental upgrade of the two-year-old X-T30, offering so few new features that fans of the series have asked why most of them couldn't be rolled-out to the X-T30 via the company's much vaunted series of Kaizen firmware upgrades, which literally means “change good” in Japanese.

With the only physical change being an improved, higher-resolution LCD screen, we're inclined to agree, but Fujifilm have assured us that it wasn't technically possible to add the handful of improvements that it has made to the new X-T30 II to the previous model.

Which leaves us with the Mark II version, a very minor update of a two-year-old camera that faces increased competition from the likes of Sony and Nikon, not to mention Fujifilm themselves in the shape of the similarly specced and slightly higher-priced X-S10.

Thankfully, the X-T30 was such a good camera when it was released in 2019 that it still stands up very well to its main rivals.

So while the XT30 Mark II doesn't offer nearly enough new features to justify owners of the previous version upgrading to the latest, the smattering of improvements that have been bestowed upon it help to make a great camera a little better, with a launch price that is lower than its predecessors was.

Overall, the XT30 II is, for whatever reasons, a very minor revision of an already excellent camera that continues to hold its own in 2021 thanks to being ahead of its time back in 2019.
