Fuji X-T3 – Follow Up To A Leader

The summer is over, and the new products are coming on strong!

Today, Fujifilm announced their latest addition to the line-up, the X-T3.

full disclosure I am in the FujiFilm system and have been with them since the 100T, XT-1, X-T2, and X-H1.
Lotta love for this system.



Is this new body a revelation? Nope.
Is it better than the X-T2? slightly. 26mp vs 24 mp. Yes, a new gen sensor.
Is it better that the X-H1? not in my opinion. Smaller, yes.
If you want IBIS and a better video option, stick with the X-H1. (just wish X-H1 had a headphone jack without adding the grip! OK, the added batteries help with video)
It does have mic AND headphone jacks on board
If you have not been in the Fuji system and have been considering joining , this is a perfect way to jump in.

Here is a full comparative chart of X-T3, X-T2, and X-H1

One thing you may want to do with this, or any new system, is to rent before buying. I always feel that it is a commitment, especially if you are investing in new glass.
This is where companies like Nikon, and now Canon had some right thinking: make an adaptor so that the shooter can use the lenses they already own.
Honestly, if I’m shooting video with a mirrorless, the X-H1 has been doing great. About to review the Zhiyun Crane 2 using it.
If I know I’m shooting stills only, street probably, the X-T2 is the current body of choice.
Will I buy the X-T3? probably not.
BUT….
I have had a great experience with the FujiFilm line-up, and would recco putting one in your hands to see if it feels right to you.
Should be less that $1600. Avail for pre-order now.

Much more coming! new bags, Smartphone camera tools, cameras, video tools!
Oh, and some major photo exhibits!

Remember-yes, we discuss tools, and we also want to make sure we are all aware of the images we make.
