Fujifilm has introduced the X-T3mirrorless digital camera in India – the first of its kind APS-C mirrorless camera capable of 4K/60P 10 bit recording. The latest model features the new X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 image processing engine and is available for a body-only price of Rs 1,17,999.
The new Fujifilm X-T3 equips a 26MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor with more than 4 times the number of phase detection pixels than last generation digital cameras. It boasts a high S/N ratio and the lowest sensitivity of ISO 160 despite its 26MP resolution. The low-light autofocus limit has also been extended to -3EV, enabling accurate AF even in low light conditions, e.g. scene lit only with candlelight.
The camera is powered by the X-Processor 4 image processing engine that can achieve up to 3 times faster processing and is also the world’s first to delivers 4K/60P 10bit output. In addition to the performance improvement, the image processor will be able to handle several functions like Color Chrome Effect and Monochrome Adjustment in an instant in a mirrorless form factor.
The 26.1MP resolution is also the largest on an APS-C sense allowing lower noise levels due to more pixels. In terms of autofocus, the processor can now deliver 1.5 faster and accurate AF with face/eye detection with the help of the 2.16M phase detection pixels. The X-T3 can offer blackout-free continuous shooting at 30fps while supporting 4K/60P 4:2:0 10bit through internal storage and 4K/60P 4:2:2 10bit on HDMI output.
The X-T3 features a 3.69-million-dot high-resolution EVF with a high magnification ratio of 0.75x. The display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and refresh rate of approx. 100 fps. The new “Sports finder mode” makes it easy to capture a moving subject. The mode shows approx. 16.6M (1.25x crop) area marking in the LCD/viewfinder, and shoots the area within the marking.
