X-T3. Fujifilm Finest.

Feels like yesterday that I have gotten my X-T2. But its been 2 years.
In the electronic world new products roll out quicker than we could fully
utilize our current product. As for me I have and I am here to share
my experience with the new X-T3.

Retrolicious. Beauty with substance.

Beautiful craftsmanship.

As I am writing this X-T3 blog post I realize almost all the details of X-T3
can be found in Fujirumors! I am screwed; what is there left to share? I
am not going waste your time with the details specification of the new
Fujifilm X-T3. All you need to know it house a 26MP APS-C X-trans BSI
sensor. No IBIS; which is fine.
As a X-T2 user myself I would believe many would like to know what is
the main improvement in X-T3. Here is my non technical mini review.

XF56mm APD. ISO80, 1/250 F3.2 Lite By Profoto 8A.


XF10-24mm ISO 80, 20sec F22.


XF8-16mm @8mm. ISO200, 1/15 F22


XF16-55mm ISO 80, 1/850 F4

Auto focus. Damn its amazing. I first mounted my classic XF35mm F1.4
on it. Boy, this camera did some sorcery and this lens feel faster than
before. Wow. The AF on X-T3 is certainly a notch up even with older
lenses. I think its even faster than X-H1. The face and eye detection is
way faster and more accurate. Eye detection is even available in AF-C
mode. Portraits, Wedding and fashion photographer will love this
upgraded feature. Of course sports photographer will be the happiest lot.

XF8-16mm @8mm. ISO160, 1/2000 F6.4. Lite by Broncolor Siros


XF50-140mm + 1.4TC ISO400, 1/420 F4


XF56mm ISO 80, 1/1000 F1.2

Low ISO is now at 80 and one could shoot up to 15 minutes long for long
exposure photography. Gone with the 30 seconds limit. Finally a touch
screen for X-T3. The LCD is 3 way just like X-H1. Eterna and Crome effect
is now part of the X-T3 film simulation and feature.

Speed options.


Basic ISO at 160. Low at 80.


Side view with vertical grip.

Rolling Shutter. With X-T1 it was 1/15 and X-T2 1/30 and with X-T3 it has
improve to 1/60. With the top speed at 30 frame per second in crop mode;
the 1/60 in electronic shutter is certainly welcome. The position of X-T3
Viewfinder is move back by 3mm to prevent nose from touching the LCD.
I guess it only matters to ladies’s make-up and man with oily face.

XF8-16mm @8mm. ISO160, 1/45 F22


XF10-24mm ISO 80, 15 sec F22.


XF8-16mm @8mm. ISO160, 1/60 F22


XF35mm F1.4 ISO160, 1/200 F5.6.


XF8-16mm @8mm. ISO200, 1/15 F22


XF10-24mm @10mm. ISO160, 1/420 F5.6.

From 24MP to 26MP isn’t a lot to me. It’s not even 10 percent. The
improvement is in the low noise department albeit others from the new
BSI sensor. I believe the most important feature in Fujifilm X-T2 and now
X-T3 camera is the user experience and Fuji colors. It’s second to none.

Fujifilm’s finest.

Through the generation. It only gets better.


Side by Side.

Lastly I think the price of the new X-T3 is more competitive and thus
more compelling for me to upgrade. What about the down side? Now I
have to spend some time selling my X-T2. Any takers?
