If you’re in the market for a new compact camera, you might be interested to learn that Fujifilm has recently announced the X30, a camera which the company claims they are targeting at the enthusiast and professional photographer. The camera, as you can see in the image above, features a pretty retro design so if you wanted something that looks vintage, this could be the camera for you.
As far as the X30’s specifications are concerned, the camera will feature Fujifilm’s 2/3-inch X-Trans II CMOS sensor and a 28-112mm equivalent f/2.0-2.8 lens. Given its relatively wide aperture, it should do pretty well in low-light situations, and with an aperture of f/2.8 at 112mm, well that would make some pretty interesting and speedy zoom photos.
The camera will also sport a 3-inch LCD display, an XGA OLED electronic viewfinder with Fujifilm boasts has a 0.005 second lag time, and a control wheel around the lens which will allow photographers to adjust certain aspects of the camera on the fly, such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and so on.
The Fujifilm X30 will also sport a longer-lasting battery, at least according to the company. They claim that photographers should be able to get about 470 photos before the camera requires a recharge. The camera will also feature WiFi so photographers will be able to transfer photos wirelessly. Priced at $599.95, the Fujifilm X30 is expected to go on sale late September.
