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 Photo, AmazonUS, Adorama. More at Fujifilm X-T3 in Stock Tracker.
Below you can find the pros and cons from the video.
- 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
- No Flip Screen
- No IBIS
- Still hasn’t caught Sony for AF
- No tilty flippy selfie screen
- Could really use a new battery
