Fujifilm X-T3 Rumors

Recommended Posts

20 fps really seems like overkill to me.  The 11 fps of the Xt-2 is MORE than enough, if not too much for me.  However, if the XT-3 can shoot that many frames that quick, then the improvement in Auto-focus speed must be quite significant.  THAT would make a big difference for me.

Sounds like they may get my dollars after all.  The difference from XT-2 to XT-3 is nothing compared to the XT-1 to XT-2 jump, at least from what I have seen so far.  Actually, I've been thinking on passing this time, but at the right price....  

I'm thinking Fuji is working on a smart strategy - sell the camera well below competition, make the profit on consumer GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).  You know anyone moving from Canon/Nikon to Fuji is going to need more than just one lens :)

Hmmmm! I didn't realize it was going to be cheaper. Interesting.

I was very, very frustrated to hear that it's not getting IBIS, given that even our little iPhones and Androids have image stabilization, as well as smaller cameras from most other major makers (i.e. it's not a size thing). The touch screen I couldn't care less about, but some of the other improvements are appealing (including longer battery life - yes!!!). We will see if it's worth upgrading from my X-T2 for something that doesn't have the main thing I was expecting and hoping for in the X-T3. At this point I kinda doubt it -- I don't do super fast continuous shooting and am about 50/50 manual vs. autofocus, so faster autofocus is not a big deal to me, though of course to many others it is.

Now we have the XT-3 to tempt us, so I need to see a reason to spend the cash for the upgrade.  I'm not sure the stacked sensor and improved AF will be enough this time.  The XT-2 does quite a good job as is.  The smudge screen is more of a turn off for me so the XT-3 so far only offers a limited improvement..

The big improvement I expect is in Dynamic range and autofocus accuracy (more than speed for me)  that a 3 year younger sensor should deliver.   

As to touch screen, you can turn it off as I have on my H1 but it seems to be needed in the Marketing Specification wars fought in camera reviews and the blogosphere. We need the fuji ecosystem to thrive to get ongoing development so if it matters to some buyers, Fuji should include it.
