With a choice 8 artistic effects, Advanced Filters make it easy to transform your photos into a work of art. Before you press the shutter, you can preview the effect on the LCD monitor. "Toy Camera" creates shaded borders as if you were taking a photo on a toy camera. "Pop Color" emphasizes contrast and color saturation.
Choose the Multiple Exposure mode to shoot one photo then seamlessly merge it with another for an expressive and artistic look. Composing the second frame is easy as it can be shot while displaying the first on-screen.
The FUJIFILM X30's built-in RAW data converter lets you view and edit your results without your PC. The conversion of RAW data takes into account exposure compensation, white balance and other in-camera image quality control settings, and lets you apply Film Simulation in the converter mode.
For the management, viewing and conversion of RAW image data on your PC, you can download a special FUJIFILM X30 version of the powerful and easy-to-use RAW conversion software powered by SILKYPIX®.
The focus mode selector lever to the right of the lens lets you instantly switch between AF-S (Single AF), AF-C (Continuous AF) and MF (Manual).
Within the 49-point matrix of the auto focus area on the screen, AF accurately and swiftly recognizes the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus. It also lets you select the position of the AF frame. Using the LCD monitor, you also can change the AF frame size and pinpoint the focusing.
The distance index bar displayed on the LCD, together with the depth of field scale and aperture value, provide helpful guides for focusing. While checking the image in Live View, it is easy to adjust the focus by rotating the sub command dial. Turn on “Focus Check” in the menu and you can use focus point zoom to confirm accurate focus.
When manually adjusting focus, this feature highlights high contrast areas of your subject for more precise fine tuning.
In low light settings when the subject is hard to see through the viewfinder, the AF Assist Lamp illuminates the subject to assist with Auto Focus.
Select from the broad range of ISO100-12800 for shooting at full 12-megapixel resolution. The FUJIFILM X30 also lets you set 3 types of the AUTO ISO range (up to ISO 3200) and the shutter speed limit. For quick access to ISO settings, you can assign this function to the Fn, Q Button or the control dial.
Automatically delivering the ideal amount of flash for every scene, the FUJIFILM X30 clearly and brightly captures faces even under strong backlit or dark conditions. When shooting macro shots in dim lighting, this smart flash prevents washout of the subject and background. When even more light is required or you're shooting with the lens hood attached, you can use a separately sold TTL flash.
In addition to Auto White Balance, the FUJIFILM X30 offers a choice of white balance presets to compensate for the color of different light sources. You can also set a Custom White Balance using a gray card or other surface, or select the optimum Kelvin value.
The FUJIFILM X30 lets you fine tune by adjusting R (red)⇔ Cy (cyan) and B (blue) ⇔Ye (yellow) in ±9 steps for precise white balance or to explore creative effects.
With a choice of 5 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range Film Simulation and White Balance), the FUJIFILM X30 lets you experience the world of photographic expression.
Trigger the shutter once and capture the same scene at your selected white balance setting plus one frame at a warmer and another at a cooler color temperature. White Balance bracketing can be set in ±1, ±2 and ±3 steps.
Capture 3 exposures of the same scene with high-speed continuous shooting, each at a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% & 400%).
Release the shutter once and produce 3 images of the scene based on a single exposure, each image with a different Film Simulation effect that you have selected and preset.
One press of the shutter captures 3 shots of the same scene at different exposures. AE bracketing can be set in 1/3, 2/3 and 1 EV steps.
Based on a single exposure, the scene is automatically reproduced as 3 images, each with a different ISO sensitivity, without changing the shutter speed and aperture. This lets you capture the moment with varying degrees of brightness. Setting is possible in 1/3, 2/3 and 1 EV steps.
