It’s always the way with Fuji, just after they announce a new camera and owners of its predecessor get all excited and pre-order, they release a new firmware to update the old one to perform almost as well as the new one. And, they’ve done it again with the Fuji X-T3, this time with the v4.00 firmware update that they claim gives it the same autofocus performance of the new Fuji X-T4.
Africa has been on my radar for a while. Having shot around Europe, India and South America, I was up for a completely new challenge, and also for exploring a continent that in many ways was different to anywhere I’d experienced. I knew it wouldn’t be easy – I’ve heard stories from fellow photographers on how certain African countries weren’t the most camera-friendly of places, and Ethiopia was one of them. In spite of this, I still wasn’t fully prepared for the intensely challenging experience I was about to embark on.
One of the things that many video shooters will be very familiar with is the 4GB file size limit in place on many cameras. This is due to the limitations of the file systems used within most cameras. Many get around the issue by splitting long clips up into smaller files, with each seamlessly carrying on from where the last one ended. But it’s a lot less hassle if each clip is in its own individual file, isn’t it?
Low-light high-ISO performance has become the new megapixel war, particularly when it comes to video. And this year, there have been a lot of new cameras released trying to push those limits.
In this video, YouTuber and filmmaker, Max Yuryev puts five of them to the test. He compares the Sony A7III, Nikon Z7, Canon EOS R, Fuji X-T3 and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K to see which is the low-light king.
With all of the big mirrorless announcements lately from Nikon and Canon, it’s easy to forget that Fuji were expected to also announce a new camera this week. Fuji X-T3 rumours have been floating around since at least July, but now it’s finally here. And, on paper, it seems like it’s everything we hoped it would be.
A new FCC registration spotted by the folks at Nokishita shows that the Fujifilm X-T3 is on the way. Exactly how soon is another matter entirely, but it’s coming. Registered under the model name FF180003, this marks Fuji’s first flagship camera made in China. The X-T1 and X-T2 were both made in Japan.
