Conclusion

Whether it is still image or video capture, the Fujifilm X-T3 is much improved over its capable predecessor. The modest resolution increase belies the benefits of much faster operating capabilities, but when it comes to capturing that decisive moment, speed and accuracy trump all.  Paired with good lenses and proper technique, this is one camera that can handily take on all manner of assignments with ease. 

It’s great to see that Fujifilm added the ability for the camera to be charged by a power bank, as that greatly increases your options when traveling or using the camera for long periods. Also good is the fact that you no longer require the additional vertical grip to enable all the boost mode functions; this means you can truly keep your setup as nimble as possible. Add to that the fact that the new camera is being sold at some S$300 lower (for the body only) than the release price of the previous X-T2, and it’s easy to see how the S$2,299 Fujifilm X-T3 is a winner in our books.
