04 Dec Camera Review: Fujifilm’s X-T3

Over the past several iterations of its higher-end X-series cameras, Fujifilm has made a concerted effort to improve two things: autofocusing performance and video features.
The X-T3 represents a high-water mark on both counts. It’s the first Fujifilm camera that can plausibly compete for a filmmaker’s dollar while offering a compelling package for the still shooter, too.
The X-T3 features a new back-illuminated 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter. According to Fujifilm, it’s the first backside-illuminated APS-C sensor with phase detect pixels across the entire frame. As a result, the camera has a lower base ISO than previous generations (now ISO 160) and significantly better autofocusing from its predecessors.
Focusing is sensitive to -3EV and the camera refocuses and meters 1.5 times more frequently than the X-T2, helping it track moving subjects more tenaciously. Eye Detect AF is now capable of tracking subjects in AF-C mode and both Face and Eye Detect AF are available when shooting video. There are 425 phase-detect AF points you can select but over 2.1 million covering the entire sensor.
Thanks to a new processor, the camera can churn through computations three times faster than earlier models, Fujifilm says. Continuous shooting clocks in at 11 fps using a mechanical shutter. Using an electronic shutter, you can hit speeds of 20 fps for up to 79 JPEGs or 36 RAW files. Opt for a 1.25x crop and electronic shutter and burst speeds top off at 30 fps….
