In 2018, Fujifilm was one of the companies that launched cameras. One of the cameras that was launched is X T3. This series is the latest XT series after X-T2. As we know, the X-T2 series received a lot of praise. Then is this latest X series is also better? Let’s look at the review of Fujifilm X T3.
What Makes Fujifilm X T3 is Different
When viewing/looking from the physical, X-T3 is similar to X-T2. However, the components are different. It is Because X T3 has the latest image sensor. The sensor is X-trans CMOS 4 with 26.1 megapixels resolution. This new sensor strips off the low-pass filter. So, it can provide optimal sharpness. Instead, Fujifilm provides unique color filters. This color is identical to the X-Trans CMOS sensor. The point is to control moire and fake colors.
Furthermore, Fujifilm X T3 adopts a back-illuminated structure. So, increasing the image resolution can be proceeded without sacrificing the S / N ratio. Fujifilm X T3 became the first X-Series to adopt this structure. This camera also makes ISO 160 a standard ISO. This is very useful in shooting outdoors during the day.
Specifications and Features Fujifilm X T3
Other specifications and features of Fujifilm X T3 include a microphone and headphone port. A dual memory card slot is also available. Furthermore, this camera also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Timelapse shooting, micro-HDMI port, USB 3.1 port, and USB charging are also additional features.
While Fujifilm may not be able to suppress sensor-shift stabilization or use more powerful batteries, the X-T3 remains a very attractive camera with a large amount of interest from new buyers and Fujifilm loyal followers. This also arrived at a time when most of its competitors were promoting full-frame models with larger sensors.
Fujifilm X T3 is able to record 4K resolution and slow motion 120 fps. This is done at full HD resolution. This camera also has F-log and Hybrid Log Gamma. Video fans don’t seem to be disappointed with the video features. Unfortunately, compared to X-H1, X-T3 does not have a 5 axis stabilizer in the body. This series also has a 4K noise reduction between frames with a new algorithm. In addition, the minimum sensitivity of F-Log is ISO 640. It has decreased from the previous series, which is ISO 800.
X-T3 autofocus features such as Face Detection and Eye Detection which also function in AF-C mode, now can also be used when recording video. Fujifilm X-T3 is capable of recording video up to 4K 60 FPS resolution in H.264 / MPEG- format. 4 and H.265 / HEVC.
In this series, Fujifilm has a faster autofocus system. The speed of photos is 11 consecutive photos per second with a mechanical shutter. This camera is capable of producing 20 photos per second with an electronic shutter. If it is lacking, it can be increased to 30 photos per second with electronic shutter but the resolution will be cropped to 16MP.
Not only does it improving its accuracy and autofocus speed substantially, Fujifilm X T3 is also capable of tracking subjects better. Even fast and unpredictable ones. This is very helpful when using continuous shooting. Especially with 11fps speed with mechanical shutter.
Before the X-T3, Fujifilm launched the X-T2 series. This series gets a lot of praise thanks to its specs and performance. This camera is equipped with X-Trans CMOS III sensor with 24 MP resolution. In addition, this camera has 325 auto focus points. The X-T2 Series has the ability to take photos in a row up to 8 frames per second.
Fujifilm also paid special attention to this camera’s video feature. They included the ability to record 4K UHD with a flat F-Log profile. Shooting in poor lighting conditions is one of the strengths of the Fujiflm X series. This capability is also demonstrated by X-T2 which has an ISO range of 200-12800.
Even though it is more sophisticated and has a new set of features, the price of X-T3 is actually 100 USD cheaper compared to X-T2 at the time of its launch. With a variety of excellent features this camera has a body price of only US $ 1499. If the 18-55mm f / 2.8-4 lens costs US $ 1899.
That’s the feature of the latest X series. The main advantage of the X-T3 is the increased performance in autofocus and the speed of successive photos. In the video there is also an increase in resolution and fps. X-T3 also has limitations, it does not have body stabilization such as X-H1 and the buffer is quickly filled when shooting at high speed.
