Photons to Photos Dynamic Range Data: Fujifilm X-Pro3 Beats Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T30 – NOT :)

Photons to Photos added the Fujifilm X-Pro3 to their database, and you can now compare it to all other cameras in their database.

I did compare it to the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-T30, and the Fujifilm X-Pro3, despite having the same processor and sensor, shows a sensible advantage over the X-T3 and X-T30.

So has it better dynamic range?

Bill Claff explains:

The X-Pro3 appears to have improved PDR but it is an illusion.

It’s well known that Fuji implements the ISO setting in an unusual way.
In this case they have given ISO 320 to ISO 12800 an addition 1 stop boost.

Fuji uses a proprietary Exif tag called “Raw Exposure Bias” to indicate how much they have shifted the raw data from “standard”.

Adjusted in Excel for Raw Exposure Bias we see that the X-Pro3 and X-T3 are essentially identical. (They shift to dual conversion gain at a slightly different point).

You can access and manipulate the data here at Photons to Photos. Bill Claff’s comment has been added on dpreview.

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Sony A6600, Low Light X-T3 vs A7III Wedding Photography, X-T3 Water Resistance and More – X-T3 Roundup

The inevitable will happen: the Fujifilm X-T4 will ship within March, and this means that the time of dedicated Fujifilm X-T3 roundups will soon be over, and the X-T3 content will be moved to the general camera roundups.

But we are not yet there.

The Fujifilm X-T3 is still today the DPReview most recommended camera below $1,500 and at the same time the DPR camera popularity winner.

So, it’s still a beast of a camera, that will soon get even better, thanks to this firmware update.

Hence, here we have one more glorious Fujifilm X-T3 roundup for you.

The Fujifilm X-T4 will have a serious challenge: improve what is already very, very good. Let’s see if it will stand up to this task.
