After weeks of leaks, Fujifilm has confirmed the X-T30, an update to the popular X-T20 mirrorless camera. The new model continues Fujifilm’s tradition of fusing much of the functionality of its higher-end single-digit X-T models – in this case the X-T3 – into a smaller, lighter and more affordable package.

Video can be captured internally to an SDHC or SDXC memory card in 8-bit with 4:2:2 chroma sub-sampling, and externally through the HDMI port at 10-bit with 4:2:2 sampling.
