A Short Introduction
If you’re a fan of Fujifilm’s cameras, then I’m sure you know that something very exciting is happening right now. Fujifilm always did produce great cameras, and you could see that from the X-T1 and the X-T2; in fact, the X-T2 was the first Fujifilm camera to ever include 4K recording and F-Log picture profile.
Fujifilm became aware that shooting video with large sensor mirrorless cameras is what the public wanted, and so they started producing cameras that answer their needs. The most recent Fujifilm camera that showcases Fujifilm’s creative genius is the X-H1, which is the ideal camera for the creative video shooter. The X-H2 offers In-Body Stabilization System, Internal F-Log recording, and the ETERNA film simulation picture profile, among many others.
Being considered as the best camera right now, the X-T3 boasts a 26.1-megapixel sensor, which enables it to shoot 4K video at 60 fps. It ensures that users will get only the best auto-focus system today.
Compared to the X-T2, the X-T3 feels a tad heavier and is somewhat larger although it still possesses the same design and button placement. It also has a built-in headphone jack that you can use for audio monitoring and a lockable pull-out diopter. In addition, it also has a USB-C port that you can use for battery charging.
The X-T3 also has a significantly sharper electronic viewfinder with its 0.5-inch OLED display. It has a refresh rate of 100fps and a display time lag of about 0.0005 seconds. As for the rear LCD, no visible changes have been made aside from making it a touchscreen, which lets users focus or fire off a shot just by tapping on the screen.
Another great feature of the X-T3 is its brand new back-illuminated X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4, a quad-core CPU, which makes it more efficient and gives it more power to perform better than any of its predecessors. Moreover, the camera’s face and eye detection have also been improved, which results to higher hit rates for the autofocus system, not to mention that it also has all of Fujifilm’s standard film simulation filters as well as a new color chrome effect.
With regard to its video features, the X-T3 boasts being the first to have a mirror-less digital camera with APS-C, or larger sensor, which is capable of internal SD card 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit recording and 4K/60P 4:2:2 10bit HDMI output. The X-T3 supports H.264, but it also includes H.265 for more efficient compression. By going for HEVC, the X-T3 lets users set a high-quality bitrate of 400 Mbps when shooting 4K at 30 or 24 fps.
Having said all that, the X-T3 proves to be a great upgrade of the X-T2. Having a new sensor, faster processor, greatly improved autofocus, and much better EVF, there is no reason why you wouldn’t like the X-T3. That’s even before you consider its velvety-smooth 4K60P video capabilities.
