The question was, "where's the red dot?" I'm afraid I made off with it to put on my L. look-alike Fuji X10. There, now I feel better. You can call the photo-cops.

Jazz1: I like some of the new features. But none of them make me in a hurry to replace my X20. Does this mean the X30 is a failure? No. It just means the X20 was pretty solid in the first place. I'm also thinking of keeping the X20 and buying one of the Fujifilm's bigger brothers!

By the way I've got a Wood Grip for then Fuji X20 X10 by J.B. Camera on the way to further enhance the retro look of the X20. No I don't work for J.B. Just letting X20 owners know you can funk it up a little more.

Why did not uing the X10 not cause you buy the X-A1, instead? They both have Bayer sensors.

Anirban Banerjee: Samsung makes good cameras spoiled by the wrong choice of lens mount :-(

Too late now but they could have shared lenses where there are not enough now.

ekaton: Would be a wonderful camera with its user interface if it had Sony`s 1 inch sensor.

Ironically, it is looking like Sony's first curved sensor will be 2/3"!

Bring back the X-10 JPEG machine with EXR. Who needs X-TRANS or flip-screen anyhow? Lighter, smaller, better looking. Just make it less prone to breakdowns.

ProfHankD: Hmm. 4 articles to announce one X30 camera. That's a DPReview record. Is the Fuji mark-up at GearShop that high? ;-)

Hi Barney,
Will you be doing a Fuji X30 vs Sony RX100 m3 punch-up comparison series soon?
Thanks,
Steve

IonPortraits: Fact is, that the monkey can't loose or gain anything from this selfie, but others will. So, the one who can only loose is the actual photographer (without whom this selfie would have never happened!). Therefore, the situation as it is, is not correct. It is just common sense.

The owner trained the Minkey to do it; that is his pet Minkey...etc., continue parody of Peter Sellers in "The Party."

Discovery Of Light: Even the specs are retro! Fuji just knows how to bring back 2013 in all it's vintage glory!

I think the LX8 will do more, and is much more compact. I posted the specs.

This thing is a heavyweight! 70 gm. more than an X20.
My X10 broke so I'm just going to work with my Nikon 1 and my Sony APS-C cameras.

In reply to:

whtchocla7e: 2/3" sensor... Did you really listen to customer feedback now, Fuji?

I had hoped for an M43 sensor; the first fixed lens camera with that size. It would have been larger and they would have needed to limit the lens somewhat. But it would have blown the RX100m3 out of the water!

In reply to:

veroman: I have yet to find any reason to go beyond my X10. The X10 gives me exceptional IQ in a wide range of environments and conditions and provides the best JPEGs of any camera I've owned so far, including my bigger Olympus E-bodies.

The X30 is almost certainly for newcomers and not X10/X20 owners like myself.

As the latest model in the series, I guess it fills the bill. But I don't see it as a worthwhile improvement over the older versions. I'm not even sure a 1" sensor would have made all that much difference. The X10 really does produce some remarkable imagery.

My X10's OVF is broken. Not an uncommon problem.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: If it has a smaller sensor with better performance are you still going to complain about the sensor size? The difference in depth of field going from a 2/3” sensor to a 1” inch sensor is not significant when you factor in the fact that the lens would have to be slower to be the same size.

If Fuji can produce high quality images with a smaller sensor then I am all for it. In the past they have had smaller sensors that do exactly that. I hope that is the case with this camera.

You say CULT? And all those 6's?
How devilish of you!

Richard Gough: I haven't seen any mention of the Olympus Stylus 1 in these comments. Isn't that a closer competitor to the X30?

Anyway, I'd like to see a comparison of these two cameras.

The Lumix LX8 will have a 1" sensor, it's specs have been leaked and it is rumored to be weather-sealed.

In reply to:

John McMillin: Just glancing at the front photo of the x30, I get the irrational impression that Fujifilm believed a large logo was a more important use of space than the OVF window.

Now I'm doubting their commitment to hybrid OVFs overall. If the XP1's replacement lacks that unique feature, my X-lenses will have no future for me.

The X10 has no logo on the front. A red dot and it becomes an antique Leica rangefinder. I carry it around all day even if it doesn't work.

In reply to:

ravi532: I expected that people will start moaning about this "small" sensor than one compared to current industry " standard " 1 inch sensor. This craze for size of sensor is reminding me of good old days of megapixel war incidentally started by sony...If sensor is so important then nikon D3000 TO D7000 must take same quality picture but it is not...most people buy without knowing what the sensor does just buy because it is larger in size..difference between {x20 and rx100 ii} is marginal during on-street morning and evening shoots...only at night rx100 ii performance stands out...eventually its for people who are nocturnal..for day light to me x20 performs better/equal to rx100 ii..[ I used both of them] and undoubtedly colors of fuji is unparalleled
camera is much more than sensor.. For god sake there is something called aperture...fuji[2- 2.8] is way better than its competitor rx100 II..
But yes without OVF the charm and retro feel is certainly missing.. overall to me its good one..

They have Pixel Envy.

In reply to:

ThatCamFan: And the reason to buy the Fuji X30 just went away for me, this is NOT a retro look + the optical viewfinder is WHY the x20 became such a success.
And now not even having a 1" sensor and being WAY overpriced I see this more as failure on Fuji's part rather than a success.

Well if they made some serious improvements in the processor, that might help. But the future probably belongs to the curved sensor, starting with the Sony 1" which may be introduced in an RX variant, soon.

CaPi: I have a X10 in active use and love it. The 85% of the VF were sometimes frustrating. This looks like a good idea. also ditching the proprietary chargers. I also carry a DSLR when travelling and that also needs one. Of course an entirely different one. What a waste of space. Good one so far Fuji!

More & more things have stopped working on my X10. Makes me wonder if I really want to take a chance on a Fuji.
