DPReview TV: Fujifilm X-T3 Review


Chris and Jordan from DPReview TV just published their full Fujifilm X-T3 review on the DPR youtube channel here. Some key points:

STILLS by Chris

  • X-T3 has 1/3rd stop better dynamic range over X-T2 at base ISO, but slightly worst at high ISO (a worthy trade-off for higher megapixel and full sensor PDAF)
  • Rolling shutter very good
  • Eye-Detect autofocus tracking is very good, but Sony still slightly higher hit rate.
  • by far the most capable Fujifilm focusing camera. Easily handle wedding, sports, wildlife etc.
  • Face detection can occasionally lock on something else, and not on face
  • You can’t toggle and select the face to track, if you have more faces in frame

I remind you that lab tests at Photonstophotos here, show that the X-T3 is slightly better dynamic range at base ISO as well as high ISO.

VIDEO by Jordan

  • Skin tones, colors and contrast are impressive
  • Video AF very reliable. Minimal wobbling
  • Jordan would like the ability to tab the subject on touch screen and camera starts tracking like Nikon Z7
  • Separate video/stills exposure if you use silent movie controls
  • 4K video is very clean and very sharp, does not look oversharpened
  • 120fps quality is very good, quite sharp. Less moiree and aliasing than Sony
  • image does not require much post processing
  • one of the strongest video mirrorless out there
  • He says Fuji should better come out with a Fujifilm X-H2 soon
  • X-T100 flippy screen would have been nice


  • Fujifilm X-T3 has significant upgrades
  • AF is really that much better
  • better EVF
  • can handle any kind of photography
  • only negative, is lack of IBIS
  • fantastic APS-C camera
