Fujifilm X-T3

Another 2018 show-stopper, the X-T3 noticeably improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. Packing a brand new 26.1MP APS-C BSI sensor and fast X-Processor 4 configuration allows for some amazing feats. The X-T3 offers 11fps continuous shooting as standard, or 30fps blackout free using the Sports Finder mode, returning 16MP images. It boasts a 425-point phase detection AF system, which features Eye Detection AF and covers a truly whopping 100% of the frame. The base ISO is now 160, a drop from the previous 200.

The Film Simulation modes make a welcome return, including Eterna, which is great for video. While the stunning ergonomics of the X-T2 are nearly identical, with a slight increase in body size, which we found to feel great in-hand.

Fujifilm has also gone well above and beyond with the video features on display. There’s 4K at 60fps, 4:2:0 10-bit internal recording with F-Log, or 4:2:2 external. The only thing that’s missing here is in-body image stabilisation.
