Is it worth it?

Yes

If you are a video maker, vlogger, or even a full-on filmmaker, the Sony FX30 won’t disappoint. It’s currently considered one of the best cameras for those keen to make their productions more cinematic. Straight-from-camera video creators will also find this camera appealing, as it would let them expand their shooting and editing capabilities.

No

Although the FX30 features a 26MP sensor, this camera is video-first. If you’re a photographer and are looking for an option that delivers captivating stills, it’s better to look another way and choose a camera that is focused on images rather than video.
