Fujifilm X-T3: Are 2/3 Stops Better Low ISO Dynamic Range Compared to X-T2 Realistic?

Fujifilm X-T3

A few days ago, DPReview published their Fujifilm X-T3 studio lab test shots, and as to expect, the FR-community had lots to discuss.

Keep in mind that DPReview used a non final BETA version of Adobe with X-T3 support. DPReview says the will re-check the ACR performance before making any final conclusions.

In the comments to the lab test article, some FR-reader observed certain improvements on the Fujifilm X-T3, that at the end could give us 2/3 stop better dynamic range over the X-T3. I will share their feedback below, as well as some of my observations.

Fujifilm X-T3 Significantly Improves AF Speed of Older Fujinon Lenses – VIDEO

Fujifilm X-T3 Autofocus

Dylan Goldby compared the performance of three “older” Fujinon lenses on the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-T2.

  • XF 35mmF1.4 (min 3:18 on X-T3 and min 4:44 on X-T2): Used on the X-T2, it takes more time to lock focus and hunts more. On the X-T3 it is definitely faster and no hunting.
  • XF 23mmF1.4 (min 5:25): This lens seems to benefit the most from the new X-T3
  • XF 56mmF1.2 (min 6:33): X-T3 locks on things more confidently, the X-T2 tends to hunt around and miss
  • Tracking (min 10:25): X-T3 is a big upgrade. Much more keepers
  • Face/Eye detection (min 12:59): works very well. Only thing when the person moves out of the frame, then gets into the frame again from a different distance, then it needs more time to find the face again.

The Evolution of Fujifilm Colors from X-Pro1 to Fujifilm X-T3 and Why DPReview RAW Lab Tests Don’t Show Fujifilm Colors

Fujifilm Colors

I am one of the few on this wonderful globe, to have had the privileged to own and shoot with all X-Trans cameras (except the X-Trans 4, until now).

And when in these days I read that the colors on X-Trans 4 might be slightly different from those on X-Trans 3, this does not surprise me at all.

In fact, Fujifilm has always slighlty fine-tuned and changed colors with every Fujifilm X-Trans/processor generation. And they even say it openly here, that they change colors trying to reach “the ideal vision” or “the ideal color reproduction” by taking advantage of new technologies (new sensors/processor).

It’s all about improving Fujifilm colors/film simulations, mostly based on customer feedback.

For example, when people complained that red colors with X-TransII in Velvia are too strong and lose texture too quickly, Fujifilm desaturated the reds a bit with X-Trans III.

So, there is nothing like “THE Fujifilm colors“.

Fujifilm colors change with every new sensor and processor generation. Then it’s up to you to see if they changed for the better or for the worst.

The Problem With DPReview Lab Test

The problem with DPReview lab test is that their Fujifilm X-Trans RAW samples we pixel peeped yesterday don’t show you the Fujifilm colors.

Why?

Because RAW file colors depend on the RAW converter you use (and in case of the X-T3 it’s even just a beta support). And as far as I know, RAWs don’t really have “colors”, but “luminance”. Colors are created during the demosaicing (correct me if I am wrong).

To get the closest results to “real” Fujifilm colors in Lightroom, you would have to apply to the RAW file one of the Fujifilm film simulations presets in Lightroom (Astia for example is great if you want the best skin tones), and then continue to edit your image from there… if there is any need for editing at all, given how amazing Fujifilm film simulations are ;).

Of course, the film simulation profiles in Adobe Lightroom do not match 100% the “in camera” film simulations (or “in X RAW STUDIO”), but they are Adobe’s attempt to get as close as possible to Fujifilm colors, which is already much better than their standard stuff ;) .

So when yesterday some of you compared the RAW file colors, just know that these are not really the “Fuji colors”.

Down below you will find the results of RAW and JPEG from X-Trans I to X-Trans IV, as you find them on DPReview.
