Although it might not have the highest resolution sensor out of the current crop of premium compact cameras, there are other areas in which the X30 outperforms its peers comprehensively.

For example the EVF is, put simply, the best out of any compact camera currently on the market. Throw in a truly premium level of build quality, blisteringly fast AF speed and a generally high level of all round performance, and you start to get the idea that resolution isn’t everything.

So while it might struggle in low light conditions in comparison to its rivals, there’s certainly enough to recommend the X30 as one of the very best of its type for under £500.
