Fujifilm X-T3 Wins 2019 DPR Popularity Ranking, X-T30 is 4th, and Nobody Cares About DSLRs

 

Recently DPReview updated its buying guide for 2019, and decided that the 2018 Fujifilm X-T3 is simply still the best camera you can buy for under $1,500.

Now DPR looked as the most “clicked” cameras on their database in 2019.

For that information, we went to the raw data. What we’ve come up with is a list of the year’s ten most popular cameras (released at any time) based on product page views within 2019

Guess what? Yep, the Fujifilm X-T3 comes out on top!

DPR writes about the Fujifilm X-T3:

Now we know: the most popular camera among DPReview readers in 2019… wasn’t released in 2019. But there’s no doubt in our minds why the X-T3 continues to enjoy such popularity – it’s a really, really nice camera. As we said in our own review, it’s a camera that does both still photography and video exceptionally well, but maybe just as importantly it’s a camera that’s very enjoyable to use.

The camera that so many of you wanted to read more about is one that we’ve got a sweet spot for too, which suggests that Fujifilm understands its target audience: deeply nerdy photographers. We’ll raise our 70-200mm replica coffee mugs to that.

On the 4th position we find the Fujifilm X-T30:

Announced on Valentine’s Day (awww…) the X-T30 was well-positioned from the start to capture the hearts (awww…) and minds of the photography community. It brings much of what we all love about the X-T3 into a cheaper, lighter body. Plain and simple, it’s a lot of camera for under $900, and our readership clearly saw a lot to like in it too.

Here are the top 10:

  1. Fujifilm X-T3
  2. Sony a6400
  3. Sony a7 III
  4. Fujifilm X-T30
  5. Canon EOS RP
  6. Sony a6000
  7. Nikon Z6
  8. Canon EOS M50
  9. Nikon D850
  10. Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III

The top 4 are Sony and Fujifilm, with the X-T3 on top. Astonishing 6th position for the 2014 Sony A6000. The interest in DSLR is basically dead, with only 1 camera making the ranking, the Nikon D850.

Fujifilm GFX100 Lab Test Images vs Phase One XF IQ3, Sony A7rIII, GFX50S, Nikon D850

Fujiflm GFX100 Lab Test

We love photography, because…

… we love the art of painting with light, the creative process of composing a story, of freezing fugitive moments and capturing ephemeral beauty in an image forever.

The camera specs are the last thing we care about.

Ok, now let’s get serious and have an exciting pixel peeping time! :D

Let’s compare the Fujifilm GFX100 with other high-resolution cameras like the Phase One XF IQ3 100MP, Sony A7rIII, Fujifilm GFX50S and Nikon D850.

Keep in mind that these are JPEGs from a pre-production Fujifilm GFX100. We can’t really make final conclusions, until we finally have standardized tests using RAW files developed in the same RAW converter.

Anyway, judging from the JPEGs, the Fujifilm GFX100 beats them all in terms of sharpness and high ISO performance, including the $30,000 (or is it $50,000) Phase One XF IQ3 100MP.

However, the there are some problems: for example, GFX100 sample was shot at f/8, whereas GFX50 at f/9. Let’s hope their RAW comparison will be more accurate.

Holy Crop! The Fujifilm GFX100 is pixel peeper paradise!

Down below I share some samples available at the imaging-resource comparometer here, where you can compare the Fujifilm GFX100 to any other camera in their database.

We love photography, because we can experience a childish joy of discovery, sometimes also by digging deep into the most technical aspects of it. :)

Fujifilm GFX50S: Can Hasselblad Compete With Fujifilm, GFX 50S vs Nikon D850 vs Sony A7RIII vs Canon EOS 5DS, Gigapixel Image

Fujifilm GFX

With the release of the more affordable, smaller and lighter Fujifilm GFX50R, Fujifilm has dropped the price of the Fuji GFX50S to $5,499 (check BHphoto, Adorama and AmazonUS).

The Fujifilm GFX 50S might be still more expensive over the “R”, but if offers features the Fujifilm GFX50R does not have, such as the 3 way tilt screen, a tiltable and ultra large EVF, top LCD screen and more.

And after months of buzz only around the Fujifilm GFX50R, I decided to decdicate a roundup to the Fujifilm GFX50S only.

And at the bottom you will find a few images from our gigiantic Fujifilm GFX facebook group.

Size Comparison: Fujifilm GFX 100S vs Sony A7III, Nikon D5, Canon 1DX, Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7, Nikon D850, Fuji GFX 50R

Fujifilm GFX 100

The Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera is big, but how big is compared to other cameras with integrated battery grip, the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II?

I thought I am going to check this out in today’s article.

Just for fun, I did throw in the brand new Fujifilm GFX 50R in the comparison.

The size is about the same of the Nikon D5 and Canon 1Dx MK II, but consider that the Fujifilm GFX 100S has a 1.7x larger sensor in it as well as in body image stabilization (IBIS), and no course no mirror.

Seen from the top (images below), the Fujifilm GFX 100S much more protruding viewfinder makes it thicker overall. I remind you, that you can remove the viewfinder on the Fujifilm GFX 100S. Might be handy if you want to store it in the bag, since it makes the camera sensibly sleeker.

At the very bottom you can see the real life size comparison between the Fujifilm GFX 100S, GFX 50S and GFX 50R, that I made at during my stay at Photokina. You can see that, with battery grip attached, the Fujifilm GFX 50S is actually slightly bigger than the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel.

I also added a size comparison between the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel versus the Sony A7III, Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7 and Nikon D850, but those cameras do not have an integrated battery grip.
