Fujifilm will have a full complement of X Series and GFX System kit on show, including the new X-T30 II and GFX 50S II – both featured in our news section this issue. Fujifilm redefined the digital medium format with its GFX System, introduced five years ago. The 51.4-megapixel GFX 50S II (above) has raised the bar even further, and this camera comes complete with the XF35-70mm standard zoom on sale for £3899 – with the body only for £3499. The consumer-level X-T30 II features the same X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor featured across the latest Fujifilm X Series cameras. This high-performing 26.1-megapixel sensor is known for its low noise performance, even at high ISO settings, and works in tandem

with the renowned X-Processor 4 image processing engine. The biggest upgrades in the X-T30 II are the provision of a high-resolution, 1.62 million dot LCD on the rear monitor, and in the camera’s high-quality autofocus skills. These bring it right up to the same level as the top-of-the-range X-T4. The X-T30’s new, highly- accurate phase detect AF has a focusing speed as fast as 0.02sec, and is exceptionally capable at tracking a moving subject, thanks to the latest algorithm for improved AF. The new camera can use phase detect AF in near-darkness, and supports high-speed video recording at smooth and tonality-rich 4K/30p – and Full HD/240p modes.
