Fujifilm X-Tx0 Cameras (2019) vs Sony α5x00 (Upper-entry APS-C) Mirrorless Cameras (2014)

Analysis:

The Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) is an exemplary product and one of the very best Mirrorless Cameras at the $940 budget.

The Sony α5100 (2014), however, doesn't seem to have enough data available for us to be able to draw any meaningful conclusions.

The Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) has done remarkably well in a large number of roundups done by reliable sources that perform their own hands-on testing, such as PCmag, shotkit.com, Expert Reviews, Digital Camera World, camerajabber.com, and Digital Photography Review. It earned numerous awards - "Best for Balanced Speed and Imaging" from PCmag, "GREAT VALUE" from shotkit.com, and "the best camera for style lovers, without compromising on substance" from Expert Reviews.

Moving on to the Sony α5100 (2014): it did great in a number of roundups that were conducted by sources that perform their own hands-on testing, such as shotkit.com, Reviewed, and TrustedReviews - it was dubbed "Top Pick" by shotkit.com, "Ranked 3 out of 5" by Reviewed, and "Ranked 1 out of 11" by TrustedReviews, which indicates that it's worthy of consideration.

To get a better idea of how they fare when compared directly to each other, we analyzed review scores of sources that tested both. Gadget Review, Techradar, PCmag, and Expert Reviews, for example, preferred the Fujifilm X-T30 (2019), while shotkit.com rated both of them the same.

We also took a look at which sources had the best things to say about them. We learned that the Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) got reviewed the highest by Digital Camera World - it gave it a rating of 10, while the Sony α5100 (2014) most impressed reviewers at Photography Blog, which gave it a score of 10.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Mirrorless Cameras on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Mirrorless Cameras being 7.9 out of 10, whereas the Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) and Sony α5100 (2014) managed averages of 8.9 and 8.3 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Fujifilm X-T30 (2019) vs. Sony α5100 (2014) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
