Our advice: From our own experience, we recommend SanDisk memory cards. The SanDisk Extreme Pro is fast enough for high-speed image sequences and 4K video:

Memory card for X-T30 and GFX 50S

The 64 GB Extreme will take up to 90 minutes of super high-res 4K video. For Full HD video we recommend the SanDisk Ultra.

X-T30 vs GFX 50S: The sensors

The X-T30 features a APS-C sized sensor, while the GFX 50S uses a Medium format sensor.

This infographic highlights the sensor areas of both models compared to other common sensor formats:

Infographic: X-T30 and GFX 50S sensor area comparison

Note: 1-Euro coin for scale; the coin at 23.25mm diameter is slightly smaller than a US quarter.

Featuring an area of 1441mm² (2.31 sq.in.), the GFX 50S's sensor is a lot larger that the chip that the X-T30 employs at 368mm² (0.59 sq.in.). A larger sensor can produce images of interiors or at night that have less noise and better contrast than photos shot with APS-C sized chips.

Advantage: Fujifilm GFX 50S

X-T30 vs GFX 50S: The viewfinders

The X-T30 uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 2.36 megapixel. The magnifcation is c. 0.62x.

The GFX 50S features an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 3.69 megapixel and a magnification of around 0.85x.

This infographic illustrates the viewfinder magnifications of both cameras. The black area represents a magnification of 1x, corresponding to natural size; indicated in red is a magnification of 0.85x, the highest value in a any camera on the market today.

Note: Differences in the image area are the result of different image ratios, 3:2 or 4:3. That can make it difficult to compare the viewfinder magnification of both cameras. However, with these two cameras the difference is considerable in any case.

CameraCreativ recommends the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Our rating of the Fujifilm X-T30

A well designed and specified camera, the X-T30 appeals to enthusiast photographers who want a fast and portable ILC. An excellent viewfinder, support for 4K video and Fujifilm's great lens selection make for a winning and surprisingly affordable combination.

Considerably cheaper than Fuji's current APS-C flagship, the Fujifilm X-T3, the X-T30 is a recommendation for people who don't need the latest and greatest feature set and rather prefer to invest the extra money in lenses. The more expensive X-T2 brings USB 3.0, weather sealing, and a better viewfinder but is identical in most other aspects.

Our rating of the Fujifilm GFX 50S

The GFX 50S is without doubt one of the most interesting new releases of 2017. An entirely modular design, combined with the latest medium format sensor technology makes for a fascinating camera with applications in landscape, architecture, and fashion photography. By all accounts, the electronic viewfinder is the best of any digital camera available today, boasting a resolution of 3.7 megapixel and a magnification of 0.85x.

While the current lens selection is somewhat limited, a variety of native lenses are announced for the coming months. Additionally, the low flange distance of the GFX 50S makes it easy to adapt medium and large format cameras to the body. Likewise, adaptations for technical cameras (e.g. from Cambo) make the GFX an interesting proposition for applications which require tilting or shifting.
