Fujifilm X-T3 review

Fujifilm’s new high-end mirrorless camera gets turbocharged

5 Star Rating

It’s pretty difficult to find any other camera that matches the Fujifilm X-T3’s video and stills specifications, performance and price, but we’ve found three other high-speed APS-C cameras that come close: The Nikon D500, Olympus OM-D E-M1 II and Sony A6500.

Fujifilm X-T3 lab tests

Resolution

The X-T3 is a clear winner in the resolution test. It’s matched by the formidable Nikon D500 up to ISO 400, but while the Nikon and the rest fall away at higher ISOs, the X-T3 maintains its resolution at the same high level right up to ISO 6400. There’s a quiet revolution going on the field of sensor design and image processing, and the X-T3 shows just how far the technology has come.

Signal to noise ratio

Again, the Fujifilm X-T3 is a clear winner here, despite having a higher pixel count than the rest. Surprisingly, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II runs it a close second, even catching up at very high ISO settings. We’ve grown used to seeing very good results from these Micro Four Thirds sensors, despite their smaller size.

Dynamic range

Again, the X-T3 and the Olympus are very close, with the OM-D E-M1 II even sneaking slightly ahead at very high ISO settings. The Nikon D500 pretty much matches the pair of them up to ISO 800 but then falls away, while the two-year old Sony A6500 is starting to show its age in fourth place.
