    Went to a local night market, decided to carry the X30 despite the not so good for low light remarks for the camera.

    Initially thought about picking one but couldn’t decide on these three.

    Didn’t do too bad with ISO 400. There was light on the first photo but then the electricity got cut for awhile, thus they used mobile phones as light.

    Nothing wrong with those - you and the X30 did a fine job. I briefly owned one - wish I'd kept it!

    Thank you.
    The BW helps. The colour ones with X30 giving me bad skins on people here. Not sure why, thought it was fine for people's skins when I was using it in Japan.

    Beautiful shots! You’ve inspired me to rethink my having written it off for “serious” shots, and to bring it out of the closet and give it another chance!

    Very atmospheric! Great shot! I am thinking that as you had said, the secret to better results with the X30 might be processing to B&W. When I get the chance to put down the X-T1 and the X100T, I will definitely shoot some photos, process them in Silver EFX Pro, and post them here on the forum. Thanks for the wonderful shots and the reminder about this camera!

    Nice series of images.
    I really wish Fuji would make an APS-C sensor version of the X30.

    And so say all of us. I've just bought a Sony RX100iii, because there is nothing in the Fuji stable to meet my needs - ie, very good quality images, zoom lens, and pocketability.

    It has one: an evf pop up on the iii: and very good it is too. Early days with it yet, but I'm impressed.

    Been reading good things about the sony, but already invested with Fuji, not keen on having different batteries for another different camera. In that note, also different menu and handling. Also, not keen on automatic protruding lens any more.

    There are times I want to get rid of this X30, but so far it fights for its spot in my stash.

    I'm also heavily invested in Fuji - and I've no problem with the quality and results, but I needed something that would go in my pocket when I am just out and about. Even with the protruding front, it is tidy/tiny. If I can sort the menu etc, anyone can!

    The iv may have the evf built-in, ie, it doesn't pop-up.

    No problem with protruding lens just the automated part of it. Accidents happen and the camera might be turned on and the lens protrudes and got obstructed and then broken. Read so many cameras got broken this way from years ago.

    I accidently turned on my fuji cams in the bag and taken hundreds of blanks a few times before. Not looking forward to having the same mistake on automated protruding lens camera.

    I've been using digicam since later part of 90s. And this accidents never happened to me before. Until a month or two ago that this happened two-three times now. So...
