Fujifilm X-T3 Summary
Fujifilm X-T3 Assessment
The Fujifilm X-T3 pairs a new 26 megapixels X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor with an X-Processor 4. Together, they delivers excellent image-quality and class-leading speed.
Images from this mirrorless have low noise, have class-leading dynamic-range, excellent color-rendition and neutral white-balance in all but extreme situations. Metering is very consistent although somewhat more prone to blown highlights than ideal
The new sensor creates a virtual 425-Point AF system that combined Phase-Detect and Contrast-Detect to deliver a quick and highly accurate AF system capable of smoothly tracking focus.
This camera is ergonomically designed for efficient controls thanks to a large number of dials, buttons and a joystick. While rather complex, the X-T3 provides plenty direct controls and a highly customizable interface.
A 0.5" EVF with 3.7 megapixels provides exceptional clarity without lag or blackout, although is not Exposure-Prioity except during Manual exposure. Continuous Drive modes of this mirrorless are highly versatile with speed up to 20 FPS and full-resolution.
The Fujifilm X-T3 delivers the performance closest to perfection of any mirrorless digital camera to date.
