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.
