Fujifilm’s X-T3 camera has upgraded processing power for better AF and video
Fujifilm gets serious about video.
The Fujifilm X-T2 is a fantastic camera with its superior weather sealing and nice color rendition and it looks like the newly announced X-T3 is going to continue with that tradition. While the camera looks almost identical to the X-T2, the boost in processing power on the X-T3 is significant. It’s the very first to be capable of capturing 4K/60P 20-bit video recordings and the 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 processor makes it three times faster than the previous Fujifilm X series camera.
Here is what else we know about it
- Back-illuminated sensor with phase detection pixels distributed across the surface
- 3.69-million-dot high resolution EVF with a refresh rate of 100fps
- ISO range of 160-12800 (epandes to 80-51200)
- Continuous shooting at 11fps
- Low-light phase detection AF has increased by 2 stops to -3EV for better functionality in low light
- Camera refocuses and meters 1.5 times more frequently thanks to updated phase detection algorithm
- Improved Face Detection AF and Eye Detection AF, both features are also now available while recording video
- Integrates Color Chrome Effect, previously only available on cameras like the Fujifilm GFX 50S
- Lockable diopter
The boosts in video capabilities are the most exciting aspects of this new camera, and the upgrades are aimed at the pros. The XT-3 is the first mirrorless camera capable of internal SD card 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit recording. The camera can record in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and H.265/HEVC. Rolling shutter distortion has been reduced, the XT-3 gets boosted to 10bit color depth with 12 stops of dynamic range.
The XT-3 will be available in black or silver on September 20. It will be $1,499.95, body-only, or bundled with the XF 18-55mm for $1,899.95.
