A new sen­sor and pro­cess­ing en­gine plus souped-up video fea­tures

Digital Photograper - - News -

Fu­ji­film re­ally hit the mark with the X-T1 and X-T2, so the ar­rival of the X-T3 has been greeted with some ex­cite­ment. Step­ping up to a 26MP sen­sor from a 24MP chip might not sound that big a deal, but the new sen­sor is back­sideil­lu­mi­nated which is good news for light sen­si­tiv­ity and noise con­trol.

In ad­di­tion, the full-res­o­lu­tion max­i­mum con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing speed of 11fps with the me­chan­i­cal shut­ter is pos­si­ble with­out the use of a booster grip. And you can shoot at up to 30fps with the elec­tronic shut­ter in ac­tion and a 1.25x crop.

There’s also been an over­haul of the aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem and there are 2.16 mil­lion phase-de­tec­tion pix­els and 425 AF points that cover the whole im­age frame. In ad­di­tion, the fo­cus­ing speed has been in­creased, the Face De­tec­tion AF im­proved and the eye de­tec­tion can op­er­ate in con­tin­u­ous fo­cus­ing mode – all mak­ing the X-T3 that bit more ver­sa­tile.

The changes made to the video ca­pa­bil­ity also re­ally im­press. The X-T3 can record 4K 60P 4:2:0 10-bit video in­ter­nally and/or 4K 60P 4:2:2 10-bit video to an ex­ter­nal de­vice con­nected via an HDMI con­nec­tion.
