Based on SUPERIA, a color negative film loved by generations of photographers, this Film Simulation mode provides high-contrast tonal gradation. It adds depth and definition to colors by adjusting their shades in highlights and shadows, while reducing saturation.
Based on ETERNA, a film designed for motion pictures, this Film Simulation mode minimizes saturation to ensure none of the colors stand out. It provides an extremely soft tonal gradation in highlights, and deep shadows to prevent clipping, reproducing a cinematic look.
ETERNA Bleach Bypass
This Film Simulation mode applies a Bleach Bypass effect to the ETERNA mode. It produces a high-contrast, low-saturation look, creating a touch of depth loved by many filmmakers. Perfect for a more dramatic edit.
Based on ACROS, a monochrome film renowned for super fine grain, this Film Simulation mode delivers rich shadow details and excellent sharpness, while still adding grain at high ISOs, and recreating the stunning textural feel of monochrome.
For black & white images. Available in standard mode, or with yellow, red, or green filters, the latter will deepen the shades of gray corresponding to complementary hues in the scene. For instance, the red filter darkens blue skies.
This mode adds a warm tone across the frame for a vintage look. When applied to a retro subject, it creates a fittingly nostalgic finish.
X-T30 II makes it easy to create your own distinctive visual style by combining Film Simulations with other effects, including film grain texture, color depth, clarity, sharpness, and highlight and shadow tones. All these adjustments are displayed live in the EVF and on the LCD touchscreen, for you to create great-looking effects and save them as presets.
From a mild texture to the gritty look of a traditional high-ISO film, with X-T30 II you can easily add natural-looking grain to your photos in camera, controlling its intensity and size for perfect results.
The Clarity control lets you decide whether to recreate a scene with a crisp sharpness or a softer feel. With 11 levels of control, it’s easy to fine-tune to your personal taste and style.
Color Chrome Effect
Use X-T30 II’s Color Chrome effects to add depth, detail, and natural vividness to red, green, or yellow tones in your image where saturation is too high to achieve true gradation; or use Color Chrome FX Blue to adjust values in just the blue tones of an image. Adjust them separately in three levels to perfectly match your subject.
Best In Class
X-T30 II’s advanced autofocus uses densely arranged phase detection pixels and advanced algorithms to achieve best-in-class autofocus. Reaching blistering speeds and working across the frame, X-T30 II ensures you’re perfectly equipped to frame every opportunity.
