Fujifilm X-T3 compact mirrorless camera launched

After its global launch, the Fujifilm X-T3 has been launched in India. Fujifilm had launched the X-T1 over four years ago and followed it up with X-T2 in 2016.

The new premium mirrorless camera takes on the latest announcements from the likes of Nikon and Canon.

The X-T2 successor comes with little upgrade in term of resolution, but it improves the processing power and autofocus performance.

The Fujifilm X-T3 body-only is priced at Rs 1,17,999, while the 18-55mm lens kit is priced at Rs 1,49,999, and the X-T3 accessory (battery grip) is priced at Rs 25,999.

It will be made available in Black and Silver colour variants in the country. The Fujifilm X-T3 is a compact mirrorless camera that packs a newly-developed back-illuminated 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and the X-Processor 4 image processing engine.

The company claims that the processing speed is approximately 3 times faster than that of the current models.

Fujifilm claims is the first APS-C mirrorless camera capable of 4K/60fps 10-bit video capture.

Furthermore, the sensitivity of ISO 160, previously available only as extended ISO, is now part of the normal ISO range.

The X-T3 uses the newly-developed X-Processor 4 image processing engine to add the new "monochrome adjustment" function to the Film Simulation modes.

Meanwhile, the X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor has 2.16 million phase detection pixels, more than 4 times compared to current models, the company claims.

The X-T3 features a high-resolution 3.69-million-dot Evolved electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a high magnification ratio of 0.75 times. The display time lag is 0.005 seconds and refresh rate is approximately 100fps.

Also, there is a new 'Sports Viewfinder mode' to capture moving subjects.

When using this mode, the X-T3 captures the image of a subject in the area equivalent to 16.6-megapixel, marked in the viewfinder.
