Named as our top choice for Best Camera of 2018 in our annual Camera of the Year awards, the Fuji X-T3 is, unsurprisingly, one fantastic camera. The third iteration of Fujifilm's flagship SLR-styled mirrorless camera, the X-T3 sports improvements all around, both inside and out. Most of the improvements and new features are, however, under the hood, including an all-new 26MP backside-illuminated APS-C X-Trans sensor, a faster image processor, a more sophisticated AF system and lots of high-end video recording features.
We've just finished up our full Fuji X-T3 review and recently published our final verdict. Through the course of lab testing, image quality analysis and field testing, the X-T3 proved to be a very well-rounded, very versatile camera that's suited for many different photographic pursuits as well as higher-end video productions. Much like its predecessor, the X-T3 excelled with very good image quality, again coming in near the top for high ISO performance for an APS-C camera. Performance-wise, the X-T3 was nimble and speedy, with a wide range of burst shooting rates, swift buffer clearing, and fast autofocus -- in both single-shot and continuous AF modes. The exterior design isn't much different than the X-T2, featuring weather sealing, numerous buttons and dials, as well as lots of customization options. The addition of a touchscreen display is a nice choice, particularly for videographers.
Overall, we don't have a lot of complaints with the X-T3. The camera feels great, works great, produces excellent images, and has a surprisingly low price point for this flagship-class camera. Perhaps the biggest omission is the lack of in-body image stabilization, a feature that so far remains exclusive to the Fuji X-H1. It's not a dealbreaker, but the feature is becoming more and more common, especially on higher-end cameras, so we would've liked to have IBIS on the X-T3, too.
