After I posted yesterday’s entry I got a great question by email, here it is; “Now that you have the X-T3 will it be your go to body? What will happen to your X-T2, X-H1 and the X-Pro 2? What features are most important to you in the new X-T3?”
Here goes: The X-T3 will be my standard and probably most used body. The X-H1 will always be close by because of the image stabilization which I love the shooting hand-held! The X-Pro 2 will continue to be my favorite for travel with the three Fujicrons as a lighter and sweet travel package. I’m keeping my X-T2 as a back-up and I could never get rid of a camera that has my name as the serial number!!!!
My favorite features are those that help me make better images and work quicker.
First the auto focus system with 425 focus points that cover the entire of screen is a big one for me!
The next feature that is a real plus for my aging eyes the new higher resolution viewfinder, with 3.69 million pixels and great color! With a high magnification ratio of 0.75x. The display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and refresh rate of approx. 100fps*ensure smooth display and allows you to precisely identify subject movements and focus positions.
The next major upgrade is the speed and accuracy of the new autofocus system in the X-T3! The X-Processor 4’s high processing speed and improved Phase detection algorithm means the camera refocuses (AF) and meters (AE) about 1.5 times more frequently than current models to improve autofocus even when shooting sports involving fast and erratic movements across the frame.
The FUJIFILM X-T3 inherits FUJIFILM X-T2’s popular design features such as the positioning of dials on the top panel, central viewfinder style for added sense of stability, and excellent grip design for comfort. The same operating system that made me love the X-T1 and the XT2!!!
Lastly, the reason I fell in love with the X System early on is the extraordinary lens line, every single lens I’ve bought and I’ve owned virtually all of them were among the best glass I’ve ever shot!
That about sums it up for me. I started with the X-E1 an the X Pro 1 and the original 35mm f 1.4, 60mm f 2.4 macro and the 55-200 and I’ve loved them every day, shooting with all the gear and working with Fujifilm’s great support team!
Blessings and Happy New Year,
