Fujifilm doesn’t stand still when it comes to its X-series of mirrorless cameras. In addition to news lenses, the company also has released another body.

In this case, it’s the Fujifilm X-T30, which is the body that uses SLR-like styling.

The X-T30 uses a 26.1-MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor that lacks a low-pass filter. Fujifilm says the camera uses the new X-Processor 4 Quad Core CPU, which helps the face-detection system for both stills and video.

Fujifilm has added a second 16mm lens to its X-series lineup, and it’s a less-expensive alternative.

The Fujinon f/2.8 XF16mm R WR fits all X-series bodies that use the APS-C sensor. It is a 24mm full-frame equivalent.

At just 5.5 ounces (155 grams), this lens uses a mix of metal and composite materials. Fujifilm says the barrel is made of metal and seals the lens in nine locations to protect it from dust and moisture.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, Sony has taken a different path with its cameras, and that’s to build new features onto an exisiting body.

Sony’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera, the a6400, makes some improvements over its predecessors while retaining the same body shell. That works out well for current owners, as the transition to the new body will take less time.

Every major digital system has a premium normal lens, and now Pentax is among them with its HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW.

The lens is part of the Pentax Star line and is dustproof and weather-resistant. The lens is priced at US$1,199.95.

It uses the KA4 mount, which means that it lacks an aperture ring. That limits its use to Pentax cameras that can provide electromagnetic aperture control.

Fujifilm has enjoyed widespread popularity and loyalty with its excellent mirrorless X-series cameras and lenses, but there is one market that the company hasn’t cracked in significant numbers: professional photographers.

That could change with the release of the Fujifilm X-H1.

Nearly everything about this camera is intended to appeal to the working photographer, from being weather resistant to a body that is touted as being able to take some knocks.

Fujifilm has freshened its X-series lineup with the X-E3, which replaces the X-E2.

While not an entry-level model, Fujifilm is touting the camera’s features that would appeal to amateur photographers and content producers.

The X-E3 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor while increasing the pixel count of its APS-C sensor and adding the ability to record 4K video. There are other changes, as well, that seek to make the camera easier to use.

Canon mentions that group several times in its press release announcing the Canon EOS M100 mirrorless camera.

“The new Canon EOS M100 can be the ideal camera for those eager to step up their images and share their creative vision without sacrificing image quality or on-the-go performance,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, Canon USA’s president and COO.

One of the nice things about a so-called bridge camera is that many of the recent offerings are fitted with superzooms that offer very long telephoto focal lengths.

The Tamron f/3.5-6.3 18-400mm Di II VC HLD brings the bridge camera concept to Canon and Nikon digital SLRs with APS-C sensors. This translates to a full-frame equivalent range of 27-600mm for Nikon cameras and 28.8-640mm for Canon bodies.

Nikon has taken many features from its top-tier APS-C DSLR, the D500, and incorporated them into a body that is more than a third less expensive.

The Nikon D7500 uses the D500’s 20.9-MP CMOS sensor that is tied to the EXPEED 5 image processing engine. The sensor has an ISO of 100-51,200, which can be extended upward to 1.64 million, which should be all that anyone ever needs.
