Our non stop (and for me non-sleep) live blogging is over. Make sure to check it out and see all the X-T3 first looks.
We have also written a follow up article, about the 17 things you might have missed about the X-T3.
And it’s not over yet, since I am meticulously searching for every tidbit about the Fujifilm X-T3 that could be of interest for you.
No Selfie Screen, Why?
I wanted to dedicate a special article to the Fujifilm Manager statement about the X-T3 lack of selfie screen earlier today here. Make sure to check it out. Done that, here is the roundup.

(Eye) AF and Tracking + See Blackout Free EVF
Here is the next bunch of content, and we start with the X-T3 first look of Thai youtube channel กล้องกล้วยกล้วย. Unless you speak Thai, you won’t get much out of it.
However, I recommend you to see how the Fujifilm X-T3 tracks a full speed running horse using the blackout free EVF at min. 6:19 of the video with the XF200mmF2.
In short: the Fujifilm X-T3 nails it!
Right after the horses, the X-T3 tracks a water skater, an even more challanging situation, given all the water splashing around him. I count 20 frames (probably shot at 20fps with electronic shutter). I see 1 shot out of focus, and right after that, the X-T3 is again in focus. I don’t notice rolling shutter.
As for the eye detection, you can see it in action at minute 9:39. It’s definitely hugely improved over anything we have seen before on Fujifilm cameras. Let’s see how it stackes up with final firmware against the Sony Eye-AF.
