Real Time Viewfinder
With a magnification of 0.65x*5 and a display lag time of just 0.005sec.*6 the X30 has an exceptionally large and fast viewfinder. It offers a clear, high-definition Live View thanks to the 2.36M-dot organic EL electronic viewfinder and dedicated lens. Display time lag is the shortest in the world at 0.005 seconds*1.
Visibility has been improved by automatically controlling finder brightness according to the ambient light levels.
The Live View display can also be set to 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.
A control ring positioned behind the manual zoom control allows the immediate change of aperture settings and shutter speed while fine-tuning composition. Functions such as ISO sensitivity, film simulation, white balance and continuous shooting can be assigned by pushing the control ring setting button at the front. Two top-plate dials and six function buttons positioned on the back of the body also offer fast access to regularly-used features for a more instinctive operation, while the 3.0-inch 920K-dot premium clear LCD monitor can be tilted so shooting can be enjoyed from any angle.
Fujifilm's image quality has been cultivated through the development of photographic films over the past 80 years and helps to reproduce warm skin tones, bright blue skies and rich green trees, just as photographers remember the scene. The X30 features the 'CLASSIC CHROME' film simulation mode, which delivers muted tones and deep colour reproduction. Users can choose from ten different modes that simulate the effects of traditional Fujifilm films. These include colour reversal film effects (Velvia / PROVIA / ASTIA/CLASSIC CHROME), professional colour negative film (PRO Neg.Std / PRO Neg.Hi), monochrome filters (MONOCHROME, Ye filter, R filter and G filter) and SEPIA.

The remote shooting Wireless app functions include Touch AF, shutter release for stills and movies, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, film simulation modes, white balance, macro, timer and flash. The X30 also allows for instant transfer and location tagging of images via your smartphones and tablets*7.
