Fujifilm X-T3 mirrorless camera with 26.1-megapixel sensor

Fujifilm X-T3 has been launched as the latest addition to the company's lineup of mirrorless cameras. Fujifilm had launched the X-T1 over four years ago and followed it up with X-T2 in 2016, and now it has announced the next iteration.

The latest premium mirrorless camera will take 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 X-T3 starts shipping on September 20 and is priced at $1,499.95 (roughly Rs. 1,07,900) in the U.S for just the body or $1,899.95 (roughly Rs 1,36,700) for the camera and the XF18-55mm kit lens.

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. 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.

It expands the phase detection AF area to the entire sensor. Fast and accurate phase detection AF can be used even on a subject that is positioned away from the centre of the frame.

The low-light autofocus limit has also been extended from -1EV to -3EV, to let the camera use phase detection AF in low light conditions.

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.
