Fujifilm X-T3

The Fujifilm X-T3 continues to win awards at the various popular review blogs, and also all the big youtube channels praise its virtues.

But if you don’t trust blogs and youtubers, you might trust the Fujifilm X-T3 AmazonUS customer reviews.

The Fujifilm X-T3 collects so many 5 stars reviews, that the Amazon Fuji X-T3 page makes for a good astrophotography shot and I am surprised that the Fuji X-T3 didn’t also win the mid-term elections ;).

And it’s not over yet!

In fact, DPReview just updated fifteen of their camera buying guides, and the Fujifilm X-T3 came out on top in three of them.

The Fujifilm X-T3 is their number 1 pick in the following categories:

Best camera under $1500

Easy win. Can’t think of any new camera that is better value for money at the moment.

“The Fujifilm X-T3 is one of the best APS-C cameras ever made and one of the most adept cameras full-stop, if you want to shoot both stills and video.

Its image quality is excellent, with a choice of attractive ‘Film Simulation’ color modes and detailed, flexible Raw files. Autofocus with most X-series lenses is snappy with effective focus tracking, eye-detection AF for portraits and zone focus modes that will adapt to a range of sports. This is on top of a well-respected interface which blends traditional dials with a good degree of customization.

We’re particularly impressed that the X-T3 does all this while also offering some of the best video we’ve encountered. It can shoot highly detailed 4K footage (UHD or DCI) at up to 60p with the option for 10-bit capture for maximum grading leeway. Useable (though not flawless) video AF makes it comparatively easy to get good results, too. Only the lack of in-body stabilization counts against its go-everywhere, capture everything credentials.

The Fujifilm lens range isn’t as extensive as some systems, but there’s a good choice of sensibly priced lenses that go well with the X-T3.”

Best camera for video

It’s on par with the Panasonic GH5 and GH5S.

While the GH5 and GH5S offer the strongest video specs and supporting tools, the Fujifilm X-T3 gives them a run for the money, being a better stills camera. The Fujifilm can also shoot 4K video at up to 60p and can do so in 10-bit for greater editing flexibility. In addition its video autofocus produces good results across a fairly broad range of shooting situations.

As well as offering top-notch video, the X-T3 is an excellent stills camera. Its 26MP BSI CMOS sensor produces great Raw files and JPEG images with some of the most attractive color in the industry. What makes it one of our favorite do-it-all cameras is that its offers a range of traditional controls with a good level of customization that makes it easy to swap back and forth between stills and video shooting. Only the lack of in-body stabilization counts against it.”

Best camera people and events

Wedding photographers, rejoice! The Fujifilm X-T3 beats tons of Full Frame cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Nikon D850, Nikon Z7, Sony a7R III and is top choice along with Sony A7III.

The Fujifilm X-T3 can’t match the A7III for absolute image quality, but it’s a great choice for portraiture and event photography thanks to its excellent colors, eye-detect autofocus and compatibility with Fujifilm’s high-quality range of prime lenses.

The X-T3 features a range of built-in Film Simulation modes, which deliver excellent results. These can easily be sent wirelessly to Fujifilm’s SP-2 Instax printer. These tiny instant prints make great gifts and conversation-starters at events. As well as high quality stills, the X-T3 is one of the best video cameras we’ve tested and one of the easiest for quick swapping between stills and video shooting.”

Well done, Fuji!

DPReivew also updated their Fujifilm X-T3 sample gallery here, and writes:

Since publishing our full Fuji XT3 review we’ve continued shooting with it – sometimes on assignment, and sometimes because we just like it so gosh darn much.”
