In my first Field Test for the Fujifilm X-E3, I looked at the camera primarily with respect to its still imaging capabilities. I also looked at its design, autofocus and performance. The X-E3 also has video chops. I put the 4K-equipped camera's video features and functionality to the test in my second Field Test.

The X-E3 can record 4K UHD video at up to 30 frames per second and its video quality proved to be quite good. The camera's autofocus during video recording was less impressive, as you can see in a couple of test videos here

Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS lens at 14mm (21mm equiv.), f/9.0, 2.3s, ISO 200. This image has been modified.

I also looked at the camera's metering performance and wireless shooting features. The X-E3 is the first X-series camera with Bluetooth LE support and its wireless features work very well. For my full thoughts on the X-E3, head over to my Field Test.
