Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The X-T30 has just four points of physical connectivity: A hot shoe, a USB-C port, a 2.5mm microphone jack, and a Micro HDMI port. Wireless connectivity is a combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. This is an astonishingly capable camera for under $1,000 that only gets better when you pair it with a nice lens.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Excellent battery life
  • Excellent video quality
Cons
  • No external recorder
  • No headphone jack

Fujifilm has put almost everything from the pricier X-T3 into a smaller, more affordable body. Images show strong detail with little noise through ISO 3200. Lightroom now supports all of the same film modes that you can get in-camera. The camera does have Eterna, which was introduced with the X-H1.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Fast autofocus
  • Full-frame APS-C
  • 4K video
  • In-body stabilization
Cons
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • No telephoto zoom

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Fujifilm X-T30 is good for travel photography. Its impressive autofocus system can help keep moving objects in focus. Its low minimum shutter speed also helps you take long exposure photographs. It's very portable, but people with larger hands may find it difficult to get a comfortable grip. It has decent FHD video quality, and produces an even sharper image when recording in 4k.

Pros
  • Impressive autofocus system
  • Great image quality
  • Impressive photo stabilization performance
  • Compact, portable design
  • Incredibly bright and sharp image
  • Excellent image quality, especially when shooting in 4k and FHD
  • IP68 rating
Cons
  • No high-speed frame rate recording options
  • Can't be mounted on a helmet
  • Loud falloff can make corners look darker than the middle of your shot
  • Doesn't have a lot of visible noise

Reviewers from t3 have found the following***:
Fuji X-T30 is an entry point into Fuji's X system. Despite its small size, the camera doesn't feel compromised in any way. As well as the aforementioned 26-megapixel stills, it offers the now expected 4K resolution footage at a standard 30 frames per second capture rate. This is a camera that the less experienced photographer will be able to grow into.

Pros
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Excellent image quality
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Not the best for selfies
  • Touchpad is fiddly to use

Pros
  • Improved autofocus

The Fujifilm X-T30 is a solid choice for serious enthusiasts and semi-pro photographers. Autofocus is quick and Fuji's hybrid contrast and phase detection system offers 425 AF points. Fuji's free Camera Remote app allows you to transfer images from the camera to a mobile device.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The X-T30 is the best camera you can buy at this travel-friendly size and sub-£1000 price point. It has the autofocus, burst shooting and image quality to snag you some great shots. Unlike cameras such as the Panasonic GH5S, this isn’t a model you’ll buy primarily for video – but it’s a fantastic tool for shooting short clips.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality
  • Excellent autofocus
