I don't know anything about blogging, but the unique (for Fuji) X-T100 articulating screen is incredibly useful for framing landscapes, street shots,  macro shots, and any other hard to get to shooting positions.  It's very difficult to go back to traditional LCD screens after shooting for a while with the X-T100.

It's an annoying feature that is most appreciated by a tiny percentage of users.

I've had several cameras with flip out screens and selling one right now, the Panasonic G85. Useful yes but incredibly annoying as it just about ruins the ergonomics of a photo taking experience. Always hated that "wing" hanging from the side of the camera.

Needless cost, complexity and annoyance to those that don't give a care about such a feature. Thank you Fuji for having the courage not to listen to a very vocal minority!

I think I'd prefer the X-T2/3's two-way tilting screen. It would work better on a tripod. or when shooting near the ground.

Predicting it now. Fuji will add 10 bit internal and 4k60 via firmware update.

Re: X-T30

Haven't watched any of the reviews yet but I'm sure this is going to come up a lot since it comes up on every cellphone review now. XT30 = dongle life for audio.

Doubtful. The first review I've read already said the XT30 is limited by its size and inability to dump enough heat that heavy video would generate.

Just FHD 10bit 4:2:2 would be already great, means 2K because X-T30 FHD is 2048x1080p.

Re: X-T30

I am very curoius about that depth measurement as well. Agree that it may well be a mistake- I certainly can't see any difference in the photographs shown between the basic body housing of the new camera and my T10. Which is a good thing in my opinion.

A joystick at this price point is incredible. Fuji is killing it...

The depth is increased because of the larger thumb "hook" and Q button placement on the X-T30.

The bottom plate should be unchanged though.

Very excited for this camera. I want a compact alternative to my D750 that provides great image quality, quick AF, and solid video and this seems to fit the bill perfectly.

No IBIS today = instant anachronism.  Otherwise, it looks really good and it's a shame.

How many really prefer a "flippy" screen?  A vocal minority? It's hard to say from this armchair, but I would suspect Fujifilm did their homework. Personally, I could go either way.

Once you've used them all you realize:

No screen is worst, tilting screen is second, full motion screen is  best.

Re: X-T30

Oh, OK. The differences are much easier to see in these images. It looks like the basic shell remains unchanged, which was what I was curious about.

The only change I was waiting for was the evf size, unfortunately they kept the exact same size, so I bought an x-t3 instead

Re: X-T30

Didn't have time to read/watch reviews, how do you find the AF performance of X-T30? Is it the same as X-T3?

Not so. Look a lot closer and take into account perspective error. Do you realize how much 6mm is? That would make the body closer in thickness to an X-T2 than the X-T20. For proper verification just look at the top view of the two cameras as listed on this website.

The VF extends well beyond the thumb grip (thankfully).

Videos I have seen says after perf on X-T30 is actually better untill X-T3 gets its next update.

Yep, have used them both. I can make an argument either way.
