They say that at very high ISO, the Fujifilm X-T3 performs worse than the Fujifilm X-T2 (using Adobe, which has no final X-T3 support yet). Using Capture One things change a bit, but the difference is still there between X-T3 and X-T2.
This kind of does not fit well with what I have often heard in real life reviews by X-T3 users so far, who say low light performance is improved (the latest is Steve Huff, see below). So what’s happening?
After the announcement of the Fujifilm X-T3, I get countless emails, asking me when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujfiilm X100V or Fujifilm X200 with latest X-Trans sensor 4 and X Processor 4 will come.
One of the guys, asking me about the Fujifilm X-H2 is FR Sacha, who wrote me:
“What would you think of running a poll to get a feel for the interest with the Fujifilm X-H2?
More specifically to have an idea of how many users didn’t upgrade to the X-T3, and are actually waiting on the Fuji XH2. This is something I see come back a lot in the comments of the X-T3 reviews so I’d be curious to see what a poll would look like. It could even motivate Fujifilm to hasten the X-H2’s release date, after seeing the results of the poll :)
One note: I feel people waiting on the Fujifilm X-H2 are actually mostly non-fuji users who want to switch to Fuji but maybe are still on the fence and would like the “whole package” with IBIS to really switch. So maybe the results for Fuji users could be a bit less in “favor” of the X-H2.”
And since your participation, ideas and contributions are the heart and soul of this blog, I will be happy to take Sacha’s advice and make a poll out of it.
Check out the poll below… and read the options carefully ;)
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.
I could not really put those lenses through its paces, since I could only test them out at Fuji’s touch & try corner, but even during my short flirt with them, they didn’t fail to impress me (I used them both on the Fujifilm X-T3).
Yes, the XF 8-16mmF2.8 and XF 200mmF2 are not a bargain, but as they say, “you get what you pay for“. Enough said ;) .
Reviews about the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are not easy to find on the web and we will have to wait for them to be available in October/November, to see more of them.
We did share a major roundup a few weeks ago here, and here are some tidbits, including a quick comparison between the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 and XF16mmF1.4, which is arguably one of the top three primes in Fujifim’s entire lens lineup.
