Fujifilm X-T3 Hands-on Review

Fujifilm released the X-T3 this year as the successor to the popular X-T2. This is a massive upgrade for both stills and video. The Art of Photography published their Fujifilm X-T3 Hands-on Review.

The FUJIFILM X-T3 is a powerhouse mirrorless camera featuring up to 30 frames per second burst rate shooting and internal 10-bit video at 4:2:0. The price of the X-T3 is $1,499 for body-only and now in stock and shipping. Check availability at B&H PhotoAmazonUSAdorama. More at Fujifilm X-T3 in Stock Tracker.

Below you can find the pros and cons from the video.

Pros

  • Face and Eye detection work well now
  • ISO 160 gives you better dynamic range than previously possible, but it reduced high ISO performance
  • PDAF everywhere
  • Great Image Quality
  • Lower price than the X-T2 when it came out
  • Major upgrade to video
  • 10-bit 4:2:0 internal and 10-bit 4:2:2 external
  • Eterna LUT for F-Log with good high contract control
  • It’s in Panasonic GH5 territory in many ways now
  • High speed shooting up to 30fps with RAW files
  • The 1.25x crop when shooting 30fps works to your advantage because your likely shooting sports and the extra crop will get you closer
  • Video AF works very well
  • Fujifilm finally has a legitimate video camera
  • Great job with power management, but should get the grip just to make it last longer

Cons

  • No Flip Screen
  • No IBIS
  • Still hasn’t caught Sony for AF
  • No tilty flippy selfie screen
  • Could really use a new battery
