Four months ago, the Fujifilm X-T3 was introduced, one of the cameras that has made the most headlines lately. Fuji’s last bet, in the APS-C sensorless mirrorless cameras, is aimed at all professional and semi-professional photographers who want to work with the best technology available. Will the FujiFilm X-T3 be the dream machine?
The new camera is equipped with the new version of the famous X-Trans sensor, the fourth generation, which promises great advantages with the new X-Processor 4, which aims to improve the continuous autofocus, the burst speed and numerous improvements to the video.
We already had the privilege to test it in a racetrack and to check all its virtues. The first impression was very good. The focusing system is much better than its predecessor, much faster. And the image quality follows an ascending line compared to previous generations. The most notable attention is the price, which is lower than that of its predecessor, the Fuji X-T2, when it hit the market.
It is not a brutal evolution. It remains a Fuji X series with all the virtues that entails. The idea is to offer the best possible camera with an APS-C sensor, away from the current fever by the FF that are so fashionable at the moment. Let’s see if it offers everything a photographer needs.
This model is in a position similar to Fuji’s other professional model, the X-H1 . The differences may not be clear but it may be that the X-T3 is more oriented to photography and the X-H1 is a perfect camera for the world of video … but with which we have in hand the 4K video can record to 10 bits … but it does not have the internal stabilization system … A headache for many …

Design and ergonomics
The T series has not changed much since that Fuji X-T1 . This brand is responsible for the current vintage aesthetics of all good cameras.
