Leaked photos of Fujifilm’s updated version of the X-T20 show off some of the X-T30’s new features.

While not the biggest model available for film and video professionals currently going for Fujifilm, their X-T20 has quietly been a solid lower-tiered alternative to the Fujifilm X-T2 and now the Fujifilm X-T3 (which we’ve covered the most here at NFS).

Updates to the Fujifilm X-T20

But as a solid Ultra 4K offering under $1,000 the X-T20 was popular with certain audiences for its simple functionality and easy-to-use film simulation slides mode for quickly creating stylized “looks” in camera.

Here are the specs and price for the Fujifilm X-T20, which really did offer a surprising amount of video capabilities for a low prosumer cost point.

  • 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III Sensor

  • X-Processor Pro Image Processor

  • 2.36m-Dot Electronic Viewfinder

  • 3.0" 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD

  • UHD 4K Video Recording at 30p

  • Built-In Wi-Fi

  • Extended ISO 51200

  • 91-Point AF with Custom AF-C Settings

  • Film Simulation for Photos and Videos

Price: $699

The New Fujifilm X-T30

In another leak by Nokishita, the first images of the new updated version of the X-T20 - the X-T30 - have found their way online. Early reports look to indicate that the X-T30 will be pretty similar to the X-T20 in terms of specs and video recording capabilities. Although the X-T30 is reportedly getting an upgrade with a new 26.1MP sensor.

The only big noticeable news is the elimination of the selector buttons on the X-T20 to be replaced by a new joystick control. No word yet, but would assume the LCD touchscreen controls will remain on for the X-T30 as well.
