FUJIFILM X-T3 ANNOUNCED
A new sensor and processing engine plus souped-up video features
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.
