As a primary camera for beginners and enthusiasts, the X-T30 is an outstanding value. The four-way button cluster on the back has been replaced with an autofocus point selector joystick. It's almost impossible to use the joystick and maintain a secure grip on the camera when shooting with one hand.

The X-T30 is an excellent camera for any enthusiast who loves the dial-based approach to exposure control. Most compatible lenses are available in a black finish only, with a few zooms also sold in silver. Even if you shoot in Raw format, you can apply any look to any image in-camera, even after it's been shot.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Fujifilm X-T30 is a great all-rounder for both stills and video. Its compact design, excellent autofocus and superb range of lenses make it an ideal everyday camera for most shooting situations. It's one of the best-looking cameras you can buy today, perhaps only pipped by the Leica Q2. Unlike the Panasonic GH5, it might lack built-in image stabilisation.
