Fujifilm X-T3

26MP APS-C X-Trans BSI-CMOS sensor | 4K/60p video capture | Dual-axis touchscreen

What we like:

  • Excellent Raw and JPEG output
  • Direct, customizable control
  • High quality 10-bit 4K video

What we don't:

  • No subject tracking AF in video
  • F1.4 lenses can be slow to focus
The X-T3 is a high-end 26MP APS-C format mirrorless camera, which is capable of delivering high quality stills and 4K/60p video. The X-T3 features an ultra-high-res viewfinder, and it can shoot continuously at very high burst rates. Dual memory card slots are available for overflow or backup storage.
The X-T3 offers a combination of traditional exposure dials, touchscreen and extensively customizable buttons. It results in a camera that can be quick and enjoyable to operate. Its rear touchscreen hinges in two directions allowing discreet stills shooting for both horizontal and vertical images. Its viewfinder has a higher-than-average resolution 3.69 million dots.
Overall the X-T3 is offers one of the most compelling stills/video APS-C cameras on the market
AF performance is hugely improved, with eye-detection autofocus and tracking both reaching good (though not class-leading) levels of performance. The camera is fast to focus with most lenses and is generally quick to respond to user input. Battery life is a solid 390 shots/charge, though by default the camera will rapidly enter a low-power mode to conserve energy.
The camera's 26MP sensor captures a very good level of detail and offers a good degree of dynamic range. But, as usual for Fujifilm cameras, it's the choice of 'Film Simulation' color modes in JPEG shooting that really stand out, making it easy to shoot attractive-looking images.
The X-T3 can capture excellent 10-bit 4K video in both UHD and DCI, at up to 60p. A touchscreen control mode separates stills and video exposure settings, making it easy to switch between shooting types. Effective movie autofocus makes the X-T3 reasonably easy to use in this mode, but a lack of in-body stabilization may hamper handheld shooting if your lens isn't stabilized.
Overall, the X-T3 is one of the most compelling APS-C cameras on the market for stills and video. It's impressive even if you only plan to shoot one or the other, but really excels if you want both. The lack of image stabilization is the main factor you might want to consider in what is otherwise a great all-rounder.
