DPReview TV: Fujifilm X-T3 Review

Chris and Jordan from DPReview TV just published their full Fujifilm X-T3 review on the DPR youtube channel here. Some key points:

STILLS by Chris

  • X-T3 has 1/3rd stop better dynamic range over X-T2 at base ISO, but slightly worst at high ISO (a worthy trade-off for higher megapixel and full sensor PDAF)
  • Rolling shutter very good
  • Eye-Detect autofocus tracking is very good, but Sony still slightly higher hit rate.
  • by far the most capable Fujifilm focusing camera. Easily handle wedding, sports, wildlife etc.
  • Face detection can occasionally lock on something else, and not on face
  • You can’t toggle and select the face to track, if you have more faces in frame

I remind you that lab tests at Photonstophotos here, show that the X-T3 is slightly better dynamic range at base ISO as well as high ISO.

VIDEO by Jordan

  • Skin tones, colors and contrast are impressive
  • Video AF very reliable. Minimal wobbling
  • Jordan would like the ability to tab the subject on touch screen and camera starts tracking like Nikon Z7
  • Separate video/stills exposure if you use silent movie controls
  • 4K video is very clean and very sharp, does not look oversharpened
  • 120fps quality is very good, quite sharp. Less moiree and aliasing than Sony
  • image does not require much post processing
  • one of the strongest video mirrorless out there
  • He says Fuji should better come out with a Fujifilm X-H2 soon
  • X-T100 flippy screen would have been nice

CONCLUSION

  • Fujifilm X-T3 has significant upgrades
  • AF is really that much better
  • better EVF
  • can handle any kind of photography
  • only negative, is lack of IBIS
  • fantastic APS-C camera

Fujifilm X-H1 Review Roundup in Times of Fujifilm X-T3

Fujifilm X-H1

With all the eyes pointed towards Fuji’s brand new speed monster, the Fujifilm X-T3, I thought it might be a good idea to dedicate a roundup to the one camera, that definitely has been mostly overshadowed by the X-T3 release, the Fujifilm X-H1.

I have tested the Fujifilm X-T3 during my Photokina stay, and it’s undeniable that Fujifilm achieved significant speed improvements.

But as we reported in latest rumors, the Fujifilm X-H1 is definitely also a fast focusing camera, and will get some improvements via firmware update in future. Surely IBIS will become better, but who knows if also some AF improvements can be expected.

Moreover, if you need IBIS, a bigger grip, an EVF that protrudes even further out, bigger buttons, an even tougher body (8H hardness) and other aspects that the X-H1 offers over the X-T3, then the Fujifilm X-H1 might be the best choice for you in the Fuji X camera system.

No Samsung Sensor in Fujifilm X-T3 says Fujifilm Manager (still Sony)

Fujifilm X-T3 Sensor

Here on FujiRumors we never joined the big “Fujifilm X-T3 sensor is made by Samsung” buzz and you won’t find a single article or a single comment, where I say that.

All we did is to report about the official cooperation between Samsung and Fujifilm on the ISOCELL+ technology and we reported about rumors surfacing on the web, about Samsung possibly supplying APS-C sensors “in future” (and not now already).

I have always avoided to join Samsung X-T3 sensor speculations, also because I have been contacted by some sources (thanks), who told me it’s a Sony sensor.

Now Fujifilm UK manager Theo Georgiades sets an end to all the speculations by saying in this video at minute 3:38.

I can confirm that it is definitely not a Samsung sensor. It’s the same manufacturing process that we have gone through with all other X-Trans sensor cameras. Still designed and tested all by our R&D team, but it’s definitely not a Samsung sensor.

He never mentions Sony, but we know that it’s currently Sony, who manufactures the sensor “designed and tested” by Fujifilm.

However, who knows what will happen in future. The cooperation between Samsung and Fujifilm is real (there is an official press release), and I don’t feel like I can tell you now with 100% certainty, that Samsung will never ever be back in the APS-C sensor business.

Personally I would certainly be happy about Samsung making APS-C sensors again one day, because customers would definitely profit from more competition to Sony in the sensor business.
