Fujifilm India Private Limited has launched its latest model, X-T3 in the X Series mirrorless camera range, renowned for their unique color reproduction technology to deliver outstanding image quality in both stills and video. The model features the new X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 image processing engine, ushering in a new, fourth generation of the X Series.
X Processor 4 has four CPU units to achieve image processing speed about 3x faster than that of current models. Not only boosting AF accuracy and speed substantially, the engine delivers 4K/60P 10bit output in a mirrorless camera equipped with a sensor in the APS-C size or larger. It is also capable of instantaneously handling complex image processing tasks such as Fujifilm’s unique color chrome effect and monochrome adjustment function, achieving warm black/cool black tone in digital, which is adopted as one of the way of expression for monochrome print in silver halide film.
The X-T3 takes full advantage of the capability of these fourth-generation devices to enjoy significant performance improvement, such as higher image quality, dramatically improved AF performance, improvement in tracking performance of fast-moving subject, and video performance for professionals. The camera features a 3.69-million-dot high resolution EVF with a high magnification ratio of 0.75x. The display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and refresh rate of approximately 100 fps ensure smooth display of motions, allowing one to precisely identify subject movements and focus positions. Unlike current models, continuous shooting of 11 fps with the mechanical shutter no longer requires the optional vertical grip, enabling fast continuous shooting while keeping the camera weight low. In order to never miss a crucial shutter moment, the X-T3 has the new pre-shoot function, in which the camera starts shooting as soon as the shutter button is half-pressed.
Supported video formats include the widely-used H.264/MPEG-4 AVC as well as H.265/HEVC for greater data compression. Video compression options available are all-intra and long GOP. The X-T3 will, after applying a firmware update to be released by the end of 2018, support video recording in the hybrid log gamma (HLG).
