Fujifilm announces the new X-T3 with a new 26MP BSI sensor, X-Processor 4 with internal SD card 4K 60fps 10-bit recording, 3.69M dot EVF and entire frame PDAF!
The new X-T3!
The new 26 Megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4’s back-illuminated sensor enables higher resolution while maintaining a high signal to noise ratio (better noise performance) and enables a lower native ISO of 160 from the X-T2’s ISO 200.
The Back of the new X-T3!
Alongside the new sensor is the new X-Processor 4 coupled with the 425 Phase Detect Autofocus points and completely rewritten algorithm that offers superior Autofocus speed and accuracy even in video.
It now shoots up to 30FPS with no EVF blackout with a 1.25x crop and up to 20fps without crop with the Electronic shutter and up to 11 fps with the mechanical shutter.
Aside from carrying the popular video film simulation Eterna from the X-H1, it now has the cutting edge monochrome adjustment that allows for the standard monochrome plus new cooler and warmer colors. It also has the Color Chrome effect that adds deeper gradation in highly saturated subjects.
The new silver color!
The increased number of Phase Detection Pixels allows for 2 stops of better low light sensitivity from the previous cameras’ -1EV to -3EV and high-speed AF in lower lit conditions like candlelight room.
The other big feature is the the ability to record 4K at 60 frames per second in 10bit HDMI output and internally into an SD card at up to 200Mbps bitrate recording. New video formats supported are H.264/MPEG-4 AVC as well as H.265/HEVC.
It also comes with a new noise reduction process and new ‘4K interframe Noise Reduction.
The camera retains the flat F-Log profile with expansions with Hybrid Log Gamma, ITU-R BT.2100 international standards.
So it may look a lot like the X-T2 but the internals have been upgraded significantly.
It will be available in the US on September 20 and will set you back USD 1,499 for the body only and USD 1,899 with the XF 18 to 55 F2.8-4 OIS kit lens.
No word yet on local pricing and availability. We will update the article once it has been announced.
