Fujifilm X-T3 vs Sony A7III Video High ISO and Exposure Recovery Tests

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Sony A7III

The Fujifilm X-T3 has great video specs, that put it at the very top of the mirrorless cameras for shooting videos.

And also when it comes to dynamic range and high ISO, the Fujifilm X-T3 performs admirably. In fact, the Fujifilm X-T3 has better dynamic range when shooting video than the full frame Sony A7sII, as Cinema5D measured here.

Also, as video-guy Jordan from DPRTV said in the X-T3 review we shared here, that the X-T3 colors and skin tones are just something easy to fall in love with.

Now also LensProToGo published his Fujifilm X-T3 video high ISO and video exposure recovery tests. You can see it down below.

I have also added the same test he did for the Sony A7III, so you guys can compare them. Overall, the Fujifilm X-T3 keeps up greatly against its full frame competitor.

You can read his findings and see all 3 videos down below.
