Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon G1 X III, which was introduced in October 2017 is a Large Sensor Compact camera with a 24.0MP APS-C sensor whereas Fujifilm X-T30, which was introduced in February 2019 is a Entry-Level Mirrorless camera with a 26.0MP APS-C sensor. There is 16 months difference between G1 X III and X-T30 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger X-T30, especially in sensor tech.
Comparing an interchangeble lens camera to a fixed lens camera is a bit tricky but we will do our best to make this a fair comparison. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Canon G1 X III is ranked #6
out of 63 Large Sensor Compact cameras with an overall score of 71 whereas Fujifilm X-T30 is ranked #6
out of 111 Entry-Level Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 75.
