Fujifilm X-T3 Review

DRPeview just published their full Fujifilm X-T3 review, and it snaps the gold award with an overall score of 88% (the Sony A7III has an overall score of 89%).

It easily beats the Sony A6500, autofocus is improved a lot, although eye AF on Sony is still better. The Nikon D500 would still be their favorite choice for sports photography, but overall the Fujifilm X-T3 is the better choice.

Compared to the Sony A7III they say:

Putting up more fierce competition is the Sony a7 III which, for a few hundred dollars more, offers the step up in image quality that full-frame can bring, as well as in-body image stabilization and a larger grip. The X-T3 is arguably nicer to shoot and actually out-performs the 8-bit video of the Sony but it can’t compete with its image quality or fully match the Sony’s AF performance. However, the Fujifilm is less expensive and smaller, especially if you factor in the lenses you might want, so it depends on your priorities.”

What we like What we don’t
  • Excellent stills image quality in both JPEG and Raw
  • Impressive 10-bit 4K video capture
  • Traditional dial-based controls with good level of customization
  • Fast, configurable autofocus
  • Rapid shooting with decent buffer
  • Option for separate stills and video exposure settings
  • Effective eye detection system (though not up to Sony Eye AF standard)
  • Eterna color mode great if you don’t want to have to grade your footage
  • 10-bit Log capture (even at 60p) great if you do
  • Includes both headphone and mic sockets
  • Bluetooth makes connecting to a phone easier
  • Viewfinder nicely detailed
  • Dual-hinged screen is highly versatile
  • USB charging is convenient
  • Slightly higher noise levels at very high ISOs than its predecessor
  • Some lenses can’t take full advantage of X-T3’s AF speeds
  • Very quick to drop to a slower, darker preview mode (presumably to save battery)
  • A tripod or gimbal is needed to get the best of the camera’s video
  • No way to quickly toggle Face Detection
  • No non-face subject tracking in video
