When photos of the Fujifilm X-T3 have leaked, we didn’t have too much info about what’s hiding on the inside. But now, the specs have leaked as well and we get to see a pretty detailed list of features. Compared to its predecessor, the X-T3 will have improved video and continuous shooting capabilities, along with better battery life. So let’s dive in and see what Fujifilm brings you in the new mirrorless camera.

The Fujifilm X-T3’s specs have leaked on Nokishita Camera’s website, and here’s what is listed (with a little help from Google Translate):

  • Equipped with back-illuminated “X-Trans CMOS 4” sensor with newly developed effective pixel number of approximately 26.1 million pixels (no low pass filter)
  • High-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4”
  • By increasing the number of phase difference pixels to about 4 times the current ratio, the image plane phase difference AF area is expanded to the entire screen area (about 100%)
  • Extended the low luminance limit of phase difference AF from conventional -1 EV to -3 EV
  • 4K / 60P 4: 2: 0 Compatible with 10-bit SD card recording in the camera. 4K / 60P 4: 2: 2 Also supports 10bit HDMI output (up from the X-T2’s 4K at 30fps/full HD at 60fps)
  • “Sports finder mode” function is newly installed. Blackout-free high-speed continuous shooting at the maximum speed of 30 frames per second is possible within a frame equivalent to 16.6 million pixels (1.25 times crop)
  • Newly equipped “pre-shooting” function that starts shooting from the time when the shutter button is pressed halfway and records the shot image by pressing the shutter button all the way
  • “Monochrome adjustment” function is newly added to “Film simulation”
  • “Color Chrome Effect” function is first installed as “X series”
  • USB Type adopts Type-C (USB 3.1 Gen 1) standard
  • Standard ISO: 160 to 12800 (extended ISO: 80/100/125/25600/51200)
  • Continuous: About 11 frames / sec (mechanical shutter), about 30 frames / sec (electronic shutter, 1.25 times crop)
  • EVF: 0.5 type organic EL finder Approx. 3.69 million dots 0.75 times
  • Rear liquid crystal: 3.0 type approximately 1.04 million dots 3 way tilt type touch panel liquid crystal
  • Film simulation: 16 modes (including ETERNA)
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth 4.2 installed
  • Battery: NP-W126S
  • Number of storable pictures: approx. 390 pictures (in normal mode)
  • Size: 132.5 × 92.8 × 58.8 mm
  • Weight: 539 g (including battery and SD memory card), 489 g (body only)
  • Scheduled to correspond to movie shooting with hybrid log gamma method and “Simultaneous film simulation / F-Log simultaneous output” by firmware update through 2018

Fuji Rumors writes that the battery life for video is also extended for 15% (390 shots CIPA standard). As we could have seen from the leaked images, the Fujifilm X-T3 will come in two color variants: black and silver. According to Nokishita, the camera will be ready for preorders on 6 September and start shipping from 20 September.

It’s been rumored that the Fujifilm X-T3 will have no in-body image stabilization. The leaked specs didn’t help us find out whether this is true or not. Oh, and they didn’t tell us the most important piece of information: how many memory card slots will it have?!

    I have been a great fan of Fuji-X cameras and invested heavily in the system. Choosing an APS-C camera must always be something of a compromise when comparing to full-frame because it can necessarily only ever collect half the amount of light and the photosites must be smaller. That compromise needs to be justifiable.

    The X-Tn series continues to pork out without the excuse of offering IBIS. This camera is only marginally smaller and lighter than the new Nikon Z series, 539g vs 675g. That’s not even the weight of a small smartphone.

    No doubt there’ll be lots of talk of heavier lenses, and that may or may not turn out to be the case. There will be the put-down brigade telling me that only an amateur would want IBIS or that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be, and, certainly for the latter point, there will be some truth in that. But the point is that Fujifilm have failed to capitalise on their fantastic system in several obvious ways. I guess we should be thankful that they didn’t go the XQD card route.

      Although IBIS would have been nice, I can certainly understand Fuiji’s decision to go for a cheaper design preserving some advantages of the X-H1 series. Personally, I don’t care about stabilization too much – I mostly shoot people and no camera stabilization system can stop them from moving.

      When comparing the new Nikon Z system and X-T3 one cannot expect there to be a huge difference in size. The only difference is in the sensor size and the opening for lenses. All other components have identical size. One does not need bigger processor or power board for a larger sensor. More significant differences in size/weight come from lenses. Nikon Z/S lenses are significantly larger available Fuji lenses (though faster with proper conversion rate).

      So in my view Fuji has its advantages over other manufacturers. Not everyone may feel the same way as the circumstances may differ. For me X-T2 is an excellent travel camera with excellent colors and acceptable low light performance (full frame Nikons are significantly better, but I don’t always want to carry them).

      What I am missing in X-T2 is a quality back AF button. It looks like they did nothing to improve it in the new X-T3. That would have been the biggest appeal for me to upgrade. All other features although nice and will be appreciated by others have little appeal for me.
