Fujifilm X-T30 II and X-T3 WW Lightly Update Previous Models

Fujifilm announced two new versions for the X-T30 II and X-T3 models. The X-T30 II has a few minor updates, while the X-T3WWW will not come with an included charger. Both models will be cheaper than their predecessors.

Original Fujifilm X-T3 was launched in 2018. It features a 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS4 sensor backed up by an X-Processor4 image processor. This processor allowed the camera to run three times faster than previous X Series cameras, and it was able to capture up to eleven frames per second.

The X-T30 was launched one year later, in 2019, and was the successor of the X-T20. It boasts a 26.1-megapixel APS–C X–Trans CMOS sensor, and the X–Processor 4 Quad Core CPU. The camera can capture 30 frames per minute at 1.25x crop, 20 frames per sec without cropping with the electronic shutter and 8 frames per sec with the mechanical shutter.

Fujifilm claims that the X-3 WW updates (WW seems to stand for worldwide) are designed to provide new ways for Fujifilm customers to be more efficient and sustainable. The company is launching the XT3 WW without a charger in order to consolidate and streamline its production for its global customer base.

The camera will not be subject to any other modifications. Fujifilm can make one product that is universally available by omitting the charger. This allows Fujifilm to reduce its manufacturing and administrative costs. The X-T3WW’s cost is reduced from $1,200 (currently) to $1,100 due to the absence of the charging brick. The price for the XF1855mm lens kit and body will be $1,500. Only the X-T3WW body and kit are available in black.

The X-T30 II, which is more like a sequel to the original than it is the X-T3 WW is, features a few improvements that improve performance. This camera has an improved LCD resolution and -7EV autofocus. It also features a 240 frame per second video shooting. Both the body and the body with XF18-55mm or XC15-45 lenses kit options will be available for purchase in X-T30 II in black and silver.

The X-T30 II will retail for $100 less than its predecessor, and $900 for the body. The body with the XF18-555mm lens kit and the body with XC15-45mm kit will cost $1,300. The body will cost $1,000.
