Highlights

  • New 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor
  • New X-Processor 4 image processing engine
  • 160 – 12800 ISO range (extendable to 80 – 51200)
  • Phase detection AF
  • 4K/60fps 10-bit video capture
  • Pre-Shoot function
  • Film Simulation modes
  • 3.69-million-dot Evolved EVF
  • Sports Viewfinder mode

The compact mirrorless camera sports a new back-illuminated 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor (with 2.16 million phase detection pixels) and the X-Processor 4 image processing engine. Fuji claims that the new cam has approximately 3 times faster processing speed than current camera models. Additionally, the new X-Processor 4 image processing engine adds the new ‘monochrome adjustment’ function to the Film Simulation modes.

The Fujifilm X-T3 comes with an ISO range of 160 – 12800 (can be extended to 80 – 51200). The phase detection AF area expands to the entire sensor. Since the low-light autofocus limit has been extended from -1EV to -3EV,  the PDAF can be used in low light conditions.

The company claims that the Fujifilm X-T3 is the first APS-C mirrorless camera to support 4K/60fps 10-bit video capture. The faster read speed on the sensor enables fast 17ms reading of 4K/60fps video. Additionally, the rolling shutter distortion has been reduced for better recording of fast-moving subjects.

The new mirrorless camera also supports for 10-bit color depth which boosts the amount of color information by 64 times (compared to 8-bit depth). The company claims that the combination of 10-bit color depth and 400 percent (roughly 12 stops) dynamic range allows users to capture rich gradation (such as a sunset landscape).

The Fujifilm X-T3 comes with a new ‘Pre-Shoot function’ (camera starts shooting when the shutter button is half-pressed and captures the moment when the shutter button is fully pressed). Additionally, a new ‘Sports Viewfinder mode’ captures moving subjects in the area equivalent to 16.6-megapixel (marked in the viewfinder).

The 3.69-million-dot Evolved electronic viewfinder (EVF) comes with a high magnification ratio of 0.75 times. The display time lag on the high-resolution EVF is 0.005 seconds, while the refresh rate is approximately 100fps. The battery on the camera is rated for 390 shots per CIPA standards.
