Product description
Announced Sep 7, 2017

The Fujifilm X-E3 borrows much of its hardware from the X-T20, including a 325-point AF system with a new AF Area All option that activates various modes as the AF point size is changed. The camera also uses and updated subject tracking algorithm that claims better success tracking smaller and faster objects. Video recording at 4K/30p is offered, taken by the full width of the sensor. Full 1080 HD can be had at up to 60p. The X-E3 continues to offer Wi-Fi, and adds the option for a constant Bluetooth low energy connection to a smartphone.

The X-E2S's 3" 1.04M-dot LCD has been upgraded to a touchscreen in the X-E3, and a new feature called Touch Function puts additional customizable touch controls at the user's fingertips. The camera's rear control panel loses the directional navigation buttons in favor of touch control, but gains an AF joystick.

Our review

The Fujifilm X-E3 has the looks of a classic rangefinder, but don't let that fool you, it's got the guts of a modern camera. Handling is excellent thanks to ample direct controls, a super-responsive touchscreen, AF-point selection joystick and high-resolution electronic viewfinder. For the novice, there's an auto switch that makes the camera simple to use. Image quality, especially JPEG, is top-notch and the 15 'Film Simulations' are fun to try. Performance is snappy and autofocus is reliable in good light. 4K video quality is average and subject tracking is a tad unreliable. Still, the X-E3 is a super capable, great-handling camera.

Good for: Photographers seeking a stylish camera with direct controls, excellent image quality and a great selection of lenses.

Not so good for: Action photographers and those requiring ultra-high-quality 4K video.
