Fujifilm Mirrorless Digital Camera FUJIFILM X-T3 Features Highest Image Quality and AF Accuracy in X Series
Fujifilm today announced the launch of a new mirrorless digital camera FUJIFILM X-T3 (X-T3). The X-T3’s compact and lightweight body is equipped with the newly-developed back-illuminated X-Trans CMOS sensor (APS-C size, no low-pass filter). This enables the resolution of 26.1MP, the top-class resolutions for digital cameras with APS-C sensor and delivers excellent noise-reduction performance. The X-T3 is the world’s first mirrorless digital camera capable of recording 4K/60fps video at 4:2:0 sub-sampling with 10 bits in an SD card in the camera body. It is also the world’s first mirrorless digital camera with APS-C or larger sensor capable of HDMI output of 4K/60fps video at 4:2:2 sub-sampling with 10 bits for greater color information.
The X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor has some 2.16M phase detection pixels, more than 4 times compared to current models, expanding phase detection AF area to the entire sensor (almost 100%). Fast and accurate phase detection AF can be used even on a subject that is positioned away from the center of the frame. The low-light autofocus limit has also been extended from -1EV to -3EV, making it possible to use phase detection AF in low light conditions such as a scene lit only with candlelight or at night.
The X-T3 features a high-resolution 3.69-million-dot EVF with a high magnification ratio of 0.75x. The display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and refresh rate of approx. 100 fps ensure smooth display of motions, allowing you to precisely identify subject movements and focus positions. The X-T3 uses a liquid crystal touchscreen monitor with higher contrast, wide viewing angle and better operability than before, and it is possible to perform intuitive operation.
The X-T3 adopts some of FUJIFILM X-H1’s popular features such as large top-panel dials / rear-panel buttons and comfortable clicking touch of front and rear command dials. The X-T3’s EVF’s diopter adjustment has a locking mechanism, requiring you to pull out and rotate the diopter knob to make changes. This prevents unintended diopter changes while carrying the camera. Connection terminals for headphones, microphone and HDMI devices are provided on the camera body so that all accessories required for video recording can be connected directly to the body for added mobility in videography.
Fujifilm mirrorless digital camera FUJIFILM X-T3 (X-T3) measures (W) 132.5mm x (H) 92.8mm x (D) 58.8mm (minimum depth 35.4mm) ,weighs approx. 539g (including battery and SD memory card) and approx. 489g (excluding battery and SD memory card). The camera will be launched on September 20, 2018 for approximately $1499 (body only), $1899 (w/18-55mm lens).
