Fujifilm X-T30 II PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Fujifilm X-T30 II? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Fujifilm makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the X-T30 II offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
In any case, the X-T30 II is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This mirrorless interchangeable lens camera was revealed to the public on September 2nd, 2021, which means that, as of today, the camera is 447 days old (young?). Given that the X-T30 II is a relatively recent model, it forms part of the current Fujifilm product line-up.
