Fujifilm X-T3 Weather Sealing Tested with Excellent Results, as Opposed to Sony A7rIII

Fujifilm X-T3 Weather Sealing

Imaging Resorce has now added their weather sealing test to their Fujifilm X-T3 review, with excellent results!

They give it a rating of 4 (with 1 being the worst and 5 the best)

Their conclusion:

Overall, the Fujifilm X-T3 seems to be very well-sealed against the weather. It passed our standard 35-minute “heavy rain” test with flying colors, and whilst its touch screen didn’t work when wet, its eye-detect EVF sensor worked throughout. Beyond that, it stood up to just under 40 minutes of the same soaking the day after, impressive given that its gaskets would already have been pretty wet from the first day’s test. And even after this extreme soaking, it returned to full functioning after just overnight drying.

Bottom line, the Fujifilm X-T3 has very good weather-sealing, and we’d have no qualms about using it for short intervals in heavy rain, and for longer periods of time in light rain or drizzle.

There is a difference between being weather sealed only on paper or in real life, right Sony? (video below) ;)

Fujifilm GFX100 Sets New Benchmark in DPReview Studio Scene

Fujifilm GFX100

The first test was flawed, so DPReview had to update its Fujifilm GFX100 studio test scene

They now published the new results, and in their own words:

As you can see, the camera is extremely sharp and capable of resolving nearly everything in our test scene. Many of the finest targets that exhibit aliasing on the already impressive GFX 50R (shot with the same lens) are more convincingly resolved by the 100MP camera, meaning that its images look better than the older camera’s shots do, even when downscaled to the same resolution.”

In short: it’s the best camera ever tested, and they now borrowed a 150MP Phase One IQ4 to try to beat it!

Check out the results at DPReview here.

Oh Boy, I loved shooting the GFX100 this weekend!

Kai Wong Fujifilm GFX100 Hands On Review: “You Do Get Quite a Bit for Your Money”

Fujifilm GFX100

Kai Wong went hands on with the Fujifilm GFX100. Here is what he thinks about it:

  • medium format is ment for tripod still subject shooting, but not with a body like the Fujifilm GFX100
  • feels good in the hands
  • like a Canon 1DXII in terms of size and weight, but the GFX100 has a much bigger sensor inside [and I’d also IBIS]
  • it functions like an oversized Fujifilm X, at least almost. No D-Pad, no retro dials
  • skin smoothing effect smooths out ever imperfection. Works only for the JPEGs
  • autofocus is pretty damn good. Same AF algorithm of X-T3, but lenses have bigger glass to shift, hence not as fast AF as X-T3
  • Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 eye-AF is right up there with Sony
  • Kai’s GFX100 struggled to detect faces, but on other GFX100 samples face and eye detection worked well
  • Eye AF is accurate and fast enough, although feels a little bit slower than on Fujifilm X-T3
  • the GFX100 sensor is 4 times bigger than the sensor on the X-T3
  • tracking mostly does a good job, although, understandably, sometimes it doesn’t shift the glass in time when the subject is moving at decent pace towards you
  • EVF is sooo good
  • shutter really well dampened (shock absorber), and you need it, with medium format 102 MP
  • nice soft shutter button, like on Fujifilm X-H1
  • using IBIS, works easily down to 1/125
  • no fancy dials, and Kai missed them, since turning a dial is easier and quicker than pressing a button and looking at the LCD
  • not too many negatives
  • electronic shutter means bad rolling shutter, but no surprise with a big sensor like that, and probably you are not going to use electronic shutter on the GFX100
  • works well enough on the streets, but not the obvious choice for street photography
  • a camera for landscapers, who need more resolution and more details
  • you can push it 4 stops and still get nice clean, crisp images
  • nobody buys the GFX100 for video, but it deserves credit since Fujifilm has done video well on the GFX100
  • uses 4K with no crop. Footage looks great. AF works great. Rolling shutter contained and video is still usable
  • IBIS works superbly to shoot stable video
  • You do get quite a bit for your money
  • Props to Fujifilm and well done to all those lucky buggers that can afford one
