Kai’s Fujifilm X-T3 Review: “The X-T3 is One Reason Not to go Full Frame. One of the Best Cameras of the Year”


Kai’s Fujifilm X-T3 Review

Kai just published his Fujifilm X-T3 hands on review here. Here the key points:

  • It’s quite mind blowing how much stuff they put into the X-T3
  • Looks same as X-T2, but ergonomically Fuji made a several little improvements
  • he runs over the specs we already know
  • X-H1 more robust body with top LCD screen
  • Battery life improved, but still not the best
  • face and eye AF is really good, quick, so snappy
  • focus is fantastic
  • AF tracking is good
  • 30 fps is crazy
  • low light AF is pretty acceptable
  • noise performance is good up to 12,800
  • not too expensive camera, it’s a bargain in comparison to X-H1
  • X-T3 shutter is not as super quiet as X-H1
  • there is still life in crop
  • for video, the Fujifilm X-T3 has slightly more dynamic range than Panasonic GH5
  • for video, the continous AF is quick and very accurate. Could have smoother focus transition
  • no IBIS, but with stabilized lenses works good for handheld video
  • rolling shutter quite low and very good
  • X-T3 is possibly one of the best cameras of the year
  • if you are thinking of going full frame, the X-T3 is one reason not to go FF
  • tasty Fujifilm colors
  • a hot performer for stills and video
  • if it had IBIS, it would make the X-H1 pointless
