New Fujifilm X-T3 Mirorless Camera is Armed With a 26MP X-Trans Sensor and 4K/60p video

Fujifilm has inctroduced the X-T3 mirorless camera powered by a 26MP BSI X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor that can shoot at up to 30 fps and capture 4K/60p video.

The X-Processor 4 is three times faster than the chip on current X-series models. The camera also has a native base ISO of 160, down from 200 on the X-T2. All of Fujifilm's Film Simulation modes are here, including Acros, Classic Chrome and Eterna.

The X-T3 looks like its predecessor, featuring a weather-sealed body with analog dials, dual-axis articulating LCD and an electronic viewfinder. Both the LCD and EVF have been enhanced, with the former becoming touch-enabled and the latter getting a resolution boost to 3.69 million dots. The EVF has a 100 fps refresh rate when the camera is in 'boost mode,' which no longer requires the optional battery grip for maximum performance. The EVF diopter is now lockable, and the camera's various dials and buttons are larger.

The autofocus system has beem improved with 2.1 million phase detection pixels providing nearly 100% coverage. The system checks focus and metering 1.5x faster than the X-T2 and is capable of focusing in light levels as low as -3EV. Face and eye detection are also better in this new model, with the latter now available in AF-C mode. Fujifilm has also added a 'Digital Microprism' focusing aid, simulating the view through an old-school film SLR finder.

At full resolution the camera can fire away at 20 fps with the electronic shutter or 11 fps with the mechanical shutter. Putting the camera into 'Sports Finder' boosts the top burst rate to 30 fps with a 1.25x crop. A pre-capture option continuously buffers images and saves the images taken immediately before and after you press the shutter release. The X-T3's battery life is rated at 390 shots per charge, which is above average for a mirrorless camera.

In terms of video capturing, the X-T3 can capture 4K/60p video (DCI and UHD), output 10-bit 4:2:2 to an external recorder or capture 10-bit 4:2:0 internally (using the H.265 codec).

The X-T3 can record F-Log footage (with a minimum ISO of 640), with HLG support coming later in 2018. The camera has mic and headphone sockets, along with HDMI and USB-C.

The X-T3 will be available starting September 20th in black and silver for $1,499.95 body-only, or as a kit with the XF 18-55mm for $1,899.95.
