Fujifilm India on Monday introduced a new mirrorless camera which is equipped with Next-Gen image sensor and processing engine, aiming to achieve 30 per cent share in the Indian mirrorless market in the next three-four years.

Priced at Rs 74,999 (body only), the 383-gram, 4K X-T30 camera features the latest 26.1MP “X-Trans CMOS 4” sensor and the fast “X-Processor 4” image processing engine to achieve a superior image quality, the company said in a statement.


The X-T30 kit is priced at Rs 94,999 for 18-55mm and Rs 99,999 for 18-135mm lens.

“The camera industry in India is dynamic and we have witnessed a significant consumption of 4K cameras from the professional segment. X-T30 not only offers a novel photography experience to the end users but also brings the imaging industry to new heights in terms of product design,” said Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India Pvt Ltd.

The X-T30 inherits exterior design features of the current model X-T20 while providing excellent operability with a new grip design that enhances stable grip when holding the camera, a touchscreen panel display with improved response performance and the “Focus Lever” that facilitates faster focusing operation.

The camera is also equipped with the “Auto Mode Selector Lever” that allows the user to instantaneously switch to a fully-automatic shooting mode.

“We’ve also brought an intelligent sensor and a swift image processing engine into this compact and lightweight body to achieve ultimate image quality,” added Iwata.

The camera offers fast and silent continuous shooting of up to 30 fps in a cropped frame equivalent to 16.6MP.

“With the new X-T30 added to the current X and GFX range of mirrorless cameras, the company aims to strengthen its foothold in the mirrorless segment in India,” said the company.

The “X-Trans CMOS 4” sensor has 2.16 million phase detection pixels, about four times that of previous models, to expand the highly-accurate phase detection AF area to the entire frame (approximately 100 per cent).

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.

It's not surprising that over half of those surveyed feel more comfortable using emojis than talking on the phone or in person.

The tiny emojis being shared on billions of devices worldwide can play a major role in digital communication, with most people saying that emoji compels them to feel more empathy towards others, according to an Adobe report.

Adobe's global emoji study found that emoji even helps people overcome language barriers and form connections that would otherwise be difficult to do.

"We were surprised and delighted by the discoveries made in the survey, most notably how enthusiastic respondents were for emoji as a means to express themselves," the company said in a statement.

Emojis sometimes get criticized for being overly saccharine, but this sweetness is key when it comes to diffusing some of the heaviness of online communication.

"Many of the emoji are focused on positive emotions, so it's easy to insert them into our conversations and lighten the mood," the Adobe study said.
