Our cam­eras and lenses are tested us­ing the in­dus­try­s­tan­dard Im­age Engi­neer­ing IQ-Anal­yser soft­ware. Visit www.im­age-engi­neer­ing.de for more de­tails

IN THE past we wit­nessed a jump in res­o­lu­tion from the X-T1’s 16.3-mil­lion-pixel X-Trans sen­sor to the 24.3-mil­lion pixel X-Trans III chip found in­side the X-T2. The X-T3’s new 26.1-mil­lion­pixel X-Trans CMOS 4 sen­sor doesn’t of­fer such a leap in terms of res­o­lu­tion, but its backil­lu­mi­nated struc­ture is what’s im­por­tant, al­low­ing it to pro­duce cleaner look­ing images across its ISO range. The way the sen­sor han­dles noise across its na­tive range (ISO 100-12,800) while pre­serv­ing such a fine level of de­tail is great news for those who fre­quently work in low light.
