The Fujifilm X-E3 is the first Fuji camera to use Bluetooth Low Energy to maintain a constant connection with a paired smartphone and will automatically transfer images to your phone as you shoot them. It also features a new image-recognition algorithm to enhance AF tracking on moving subjects. Thanks to the algorithm, the camera can track subjects half the size or moving twice as fast as previous cameras.

Also new is a touch display that enables you to assign camera settings to swipe gestures (swipe right, left, etc.). The 3-inch display also supports touch focusing.

The X-E3 uses a 24.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III image sensor with a native ISO range of 200-12,800 (expandable to 100 and 51,200). It can record 4K/30p video for up to 10 minutes at a clip with clean HDMI output. Full HD video can be captured at up to 60p and you can use the camera’s film simulation modes while recording.

The camera can burst at up to 14fps using an electronic shutter or at 8fps using a mechanical shutter.

On the design side, the X-E3 features a focus lever to assign AF points. It’s also the most compact and lightweight model with a viewfinder in the X Series.

Additional features include:

  • 0.4 sec. startup time
  • 1/4000 mechanical shutter
  • 1/32,000 sec. electronic shutter
  • Shutter time lag of 0.050 sec.
  • Shooting interval of 0.25 sec.

It will ship later this month for $900 …
