Fujifilm has today announced the addition of a new premium compact camera to their range in the form of the Fujifilm X30. Which is equipped with a Real Time Viewfinder that offers the largest, fastest and highest resolving viewfinder in its class, say Fujifilm.
The new Fujifilm X30 is equipped with a 12 megapixel sensor and EXR Processor II image processing engine with 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor and features a 28-112mm f/2.0-2.8 lens with 4x optical zoom complete with a retro design that is a throwback to the 80’s.
Further options include a newly designed control ring together with extra dials and function buttons for more control and a tilting 3.0-inch 920K-dot premium clear LCD monitor. Fujifilm has also improved the battery life in their latest compact camera that will be available in both black and silver finishes. Fujifilm explains a little more technology included in its Real Time Viewfinder:
“With a magnification of 0.65x and a display lag time of just 0.005sec, the X30 has the largest and fastest viewfinder in its class. It offers a clear, high-definition Live View thanks to the new 2.36M-dot organic EL electronic viewfinder and newly-designed dedicated lens, plus visibility has been improved by automatically controlling finder brightness according to the ambient light levels.
The Live View display can also be set the ‘Preview Pic. Effect’ function to reflect shooting conditions or offer a natural view close to what is seen with the naked eye, while the viewfinder’s eye sensor will also automatically switch the visible information when the camera is positioned vertically; something that was not possible with the previous model’s optical viewfinder.”
Unfortunately no information on pricing has been released as yet, but the new camera is expected to be available to purchase towards the end of next month. For more information on the new Fujifilm X30 compact camera jump over to the Fujifilm website for details and full specifications.
