Fujifilm X30 vs Fujifilm X20

Fujifilm-X30-vs-X20-imageWe have compared the core specification of recently announced Fujifilm X30 camera with the Fujifilm X20 camera, but we are not able to find any major difference between the X30 and X20… take a look

Fujifilm-X30-vs-Fujifilm-X2The worst part is the Sensor and Optical lens remains same, Why a current Fuji X20 owner will spend $600 to get same image quality from a new camera? Fuji is just Re-branding old product with a new name ..improving the display screen, adding WiFi..etc… will not improve the image qualitydon’t waste your money in Buying in the X30 camera.. If you want to buy compact  X series camera with phase AF support we recommend you to go with Fujifilm X20, Since the X20 will cost you $150 less than current X30 camera and will give you same image quality as of the new one.
